I Thought I Was Wrong Once But I Was Mistaken! lol
Just a decent guy who's trying to find balance after a LTR/separation/divorce and then the recent loss of a very close brother. I'm not exactly rebounding since it's been 5 years since I was with the ex. And I'm not looking for a Barbie or some eye candy to ease a mid-life crisis but I am height/weight proportionate so figure you should be too. Prefer a Plain-Jane intellectual type, low maintenance and easy on the eyes but hell, I'm adventurous, surprise me.
My personality trait is INFJ (http://www.personalitypage.com/INFJ.html or Google it for more insight) which puts me in a category shared by less than 1% of the population. Among other things I'm a champion for the weak, downtrodden, children and animals. They need special attention and top my list of things to be protected quickly followed by Mother Earth and ALL of her natural beauties. So, if you seek somebody unique you should drop by to say hi. Chances are pretty good it'll be a positive new experience for you.
I like to have fun, still party a little, try to find joy in the midst of tragedy and the everyday trials of life while trying to treat people the way I hope to be treated. It's a very big world and I've experienced but a fraction of it, time's a wasting!
I'm lQQking for a special woman to share the rest of our days together discovering the world around us and helping those less fortunate than ourselves if even in a small way.

||I'm an amiable, dedicated, faithful, fit, friendly, funny, healthy, respectful, thoughtful, non-smoking, non-game playing dreamer and go with the flow kind of guy (see below). Capable of intelligent conversation (except during Bears games):P 6'-160lb I'm very non-dairy and mostly vegetarian but eat organic seafood and free range meats occasionally. Eclectic tastes, Amadeus Mozart to Led Zeppelin and although I sport two left feet I'm always up for a slow dance.
Well traveled I love to explore and discover the world around us yet enjoy warm, easy, quiet times too. Do yard work, watch things grow, tend a compost pile, smell the earth & feel the grass between my toes. I try learning something new every day and hope to leave the world a better place than the one I discovered.
I prefer casual, laid back, "ParrotHead" dress but clean up nicely and even enjoy the occasional black tie affair. I believe in and hold dear a "live & let live" attitude with my political steering mechanism usually hard to port (that's left for ya lubbers) among Nelson Mandela, Gandhi and the Dalai Lama but I'll go to the right for a good cause too.
From a bicycle ride along the lake, a hike in the woods to high sea adventure I want to see/feel/taste it all. LQQking for the woman who still has that gleam in her eye and keeps me begging for more. The special someone to take hold of my hand as we navigate the twists, turns and especially the bumps of life knowing that together we cannot be beaten.
Sound too good to be true? You're only a mouse twitch away from knowing for certain...
To Go With The Flow
Going with the flow doesn't mean that we don't know where we're going; it means that we are open to multiple ways of getting there. We are also open to changing our destination, clinging more to the essence of our goal than to the particulars. We acknowledge that letting go and modifying our plans is part of the process. Going with the flow means that we are aware of an energy that is larger than our small selves and we are open to working with it, not against it.
