A little about me...
Thanks for reading my profile! I'm a sensitive, empathetic, affectionate, thoughtful, introspective, curious and authentic man. I have a great sense of humor, an irreverent wit and can find humor in most situations. I love to read for enjoyment and edification as we should always be growing in knowledge and aspiring to be better people. When inspired, I love to create haiku and limericks. Courtesy, punctuality and fastidiousness are qualities I appreciate. I am spiritual and find my daily hikes in the woods to be relaxing and renewing, as well as spiritually uplifting. I enjoy working with my hands and doing household repairs. I enjoy spending time with friends and my son and his family..
About the one I'm looking for...
Is cherish too strong a word? I'm looking to find an intelligent, communicative, fun- loving companion who will love, trust and respect me and honestly and fully share her joys and concerns with me, understanding that I will reciprocate fully. I want to give and get comfort from her, discuss everything with her and allow her space as needed. I don't want to control or be controlled, I just want us to feel free to be who we really are, both as individuals and as a couple, and enjoy that knowledge when we're together and when we're apart.
I'd just like to add...
I'm not going to respond to "flirts", only to women who have a current photo posted, who provide some information about themselves and who introduce themselves in a manner that initiates and encourages a two-way conversation!!!

My Top Interests:
Religion and Spirituality
Buddhism helps me focus on suppressing my ego and living in the present. I seek to rediscover my inner child who finds joy and happiness in all things under all circumstances.
Nature and Outdoors
TIme in nature is very important to me. It resonates with life that enhances my spiritual awareness, stimulates my senses and gives me a sense of both wonder and belonging.
Aging makes staying fit more difficult and more necessary. I hike a few miles every day with trekking poles and lift weights. I'm also working to improve and better regulate my diet..
