Hi. I am direct and honest. Being true to my life partner is who I am and is a part of the joy of a relationship. I'm established, fit, considerate, empathetic, open and intelligent. It's important to me to be healthy and seeking a partner that feels the same way. I don't smoke, don't do drugs and drink rarely. I was raised in the Midwest and have Midwest values, honor, integrity, courtesy, if someone is in distress, you stop what you're doing and help. Movement is important to me, I prefer to be a participant rather than a spectator. I like to dance, hike, bike, workout, sail and ride. I like all types of live music, musicals, symphonies, concerts, corner bar jam sessions. I like to learn and I enjoy expanding my knowledge and realize how hard it is to find true wisdom. I like learning most from others, but I also read a lot. I can converse with most people on most topics, except that I don't have interest in most TV. The oceans, islands, coastlines and mountains are my favorite places. I try to be self-aware and fix flaws in myself that I discover as I go along, however I find that I add many things to this list, but I do make progress on working them down :) UPDATE FEB-2021: I have had my COVID vaccinations. I didn't get a collar and tag like dogs get with their shots, but I am less dangerous now :) Benefits of working in a medical research lab.
