In A Nutshell
I have terrible luck in relationships. No, really, I do. I've been married twice. The first marriage lasted 6 years and ended due to infidelity. The second marriage lasted 22 years and ended due to financial mismanagement and deceit. I'm hard working, loyal, dependable, trusting, fun loving, spontaneous, spiritual, a bit bohemian, intelligent, and easy going with a memory like Sheldon from "The Big bang Theory." Music is my essence. Other than God, it's the most intrinsic thing to my being. I'm comfortable black tie and tails or in a chaise lounge on the beach. I just want to meet someone who appreciates me for who I am, and wants to be fully and completely loved for who they are.
The One I Am Looking For
I don't have a magic formula for "the perfect woman." Blonde, brunette, green eyes, blue, brown... it's all good. I would like to find someone who is spiritual, intelligent, fun loving, spontaneous, open to impromptu road trips, maybe even a bit of a free spirit, not a hardcore athlete, but not a couch potato, who enjoys good food, good wine, good conversation, and slow dancing in the rain to Bill Withers, who is secure, confident, easy going, who will ride ANY rollercoaster, who doesn't believe vacations have to be regimented and scheduled, who isn't a control freak, who is moderately OCD at best, who loves to travel, adores music of all kinds, who enjoys new experiences, and who wants to be appreciated, adored, loved, cherished, protected, cared for, who wants a stable partner, 100% communication, and who believes that relationships are completely dependent on trust, honesty, communication, and appreciating/accepting/enjoying the other person for who they are... in all ways. I'm not controlling: your hair, makeup, wardrobe, shoes (if you must), career, etc. are what make you who you are to a degree. If you're comfortable with the refection in the mirror, why would I want to change that? Your happiness is my happiness.
I'd Just Like to Add
What makes me, 'me?" Good question! Science has been working on that one for 52 years. I'm not weird or geeky or scary, and I have no emotional or mental issues, and I'm not on any medication for depression, mental disorders, anger issues, or any of that stuff.... but... I'm not exactly a "typical" guy in a lot of ways. I'm not afraid of commitment, I'm secure enough to show my emotions, music flows through me like my blood or the air that I breathe, I have a ridiculous memory and I am a treasure trove of eclectic trivia, I like good craft beer, fine wine, good tequila, the ocean is in my DNA, I've been catapulted off an aircraft carrier so I'll ride any rollercoaster or ride, in any park, anytime, I like motorcycles (but not big Harley cruisers with loud pipes), I am the Zen master of the impromptu weekend road trip, I don't think an entire day spent curled up in a hammock with a nice breeze and a good view of the Caribbean is a wasted day, I speak Arabic, a little Spanish, a smattering of Italian and enough Japanese to get myself in trouble, I have a BS in Mathematics from South Carolina, I'm a veteran of 8 years in the Navy, I've spent the last 20+ years in IT, but I'm in the process of becoming at OTR truck driver. I'm unique.
