A little about me...
Love is the only flower that grows without the aid of seasons. I am a gentleman and treat women the way I expect men to treat my daughter. I’m very happy and confident in my own skin. I’ve completed the first quarter of my run with three quarters to go – probably 70 years more. I love exploring, learning, helping, giving and rooting for the underdog. I have no agenda other than to help others and enjoy myself as I become a better person.
I moved to Fayetteville from LA after running a company for 39 years. Traveling 700+ times to visit Wal-Mart, I fell in love with Arkansas. After a crazy Malibu life on the ocean, this Arkansas ground feels like holding a hand or being hugged. The past two years have been the happiest in my life – full of grounded people, God’s nature, no stress, simplicity and peace. I'm a freelance photographer for National Geographic and shoot nature, children and the elderly. It’s a hobby and my income is donated to charity. I’m not climbing the ladder to the top; been there, not so special. Money can be a burden. Other than health and the safety of my family, nothing’s that important any day. I’m authentic, smart, funny, giving, honest, trustworthy, respectful, supportive, happy and loving.
About the one I'm looking for...
I enjoy photography, hiking, fishing, boating, rock climbing, camping, skiing, basketball, soccer, swimming, cooking, reading, writing, VOLUNTEERING and being friends with everyone. - anything fun and worthwhile. I love getting dirty and clean up pretty well. I believe in the Lord but do not attend church on a formal basis. I’ve been married once, have two beautiful children, and especially love playing with my one- and three-year-old granddaughters.
MY VISION: she is smart, funny, honest, faithful, trustworthy, respectful, understanding, compromising, passionate and caring. The sexiest part of a woman to me is her mind. Chemistry is a must: I have female friends without chemistry. We can be friends which is the foundation of any relationship. Hopefully you prefer challenges, traveling, boating, picnics, hikes, LAUGHING and particularly activities that cost no money that are plain, simple and sincere (this is not a money issue). You are attractive inside and out, fit, proud, strong, independent and enjoy the simplicity of no GPS. Let’s just go out and fly like a bird, play like we are ten, as childhood is so innocent, free and real. I’ve traveled 70% of the world and prefer quiet, simple, real places more than big, noisy cities.
I'd just like to add...
You should be no more than 40 miles from Fayetteville and 50-68 years old (although any age is fine; hearts do not know numbers).
DEALBREAKERS: Please don’t mail if you are not comfortable with any of the above or below. I find tech sites an odd way to meet special people. I can’t smell your perfume, look into your eyes, or hear your laughter, but this account was given as a gift. NOTE: If we connect, after 2 two emails and one call, we meet right away - no text, no chat, no tweets or 12 ping pong emails. In three minutes face-to-face in a safe public place, we will know to continue or not. No exceptions please. It might sound demanding or fearful: it’s not that, only my requests. It should be fun; we can simply meet in the produce section by the bananas at a Wal-Mart of your choice. Please bring your shopping list should we not connect. Yes, we can meet for coffee, but it’s mundane and I prefer fresh ideas and colors. I am very selective and choose not to date unless butterflies start flying.
Please respect my requests. Quality of life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond. Please closet your memories as you move forward. Love is giving someone the power to break your heart but trusting they won't.

My Top Interests:
Family and Friends
My family is #1. Unconditional love. Support. Honesty. A part of me. Have my back. True love and friendship. Fun.
Nature and Outdoors
I'm happiest out of big cities, traffic, stores, bling. Lived in NYC and LA. Need trees hugging me. Quiet. Hiking, boating, rock climbing, picnics, all natural grounded
places. Camping, farming, horsing,getting dirty, simplicity, walking in the rain....being alone or with that special friend. Peace. Real.
I've traveled to 70% of the world.
Never get bored, love learning and meeting people. Prefer places with no McDonalds, fancy hotels. Like the 2-3rd world locations . It's much more adventurous and challenging.
The uncivilized parts of the world excite me....London is NY with a twist.
Exploring ,unique , special, more risky...they are new colors.
