OK... so I'm not really in Bethesda... yet. Native Washingtonian, raised in Bethesda, I'm in Philadelphia while I get a lay of the land in DC where I plan to live and work. I was in TN for almost 20 yrs, and it is way past time for me to come "Home."
Married 25 yrs, divorced 5 and 1/2, 2 sons launched and independent, and now live my mission statement: To lead an extraordinary life. I know what I want, what love looks like and who I am and here's what I know:
Being 54 really is the coolest thing. I'm still "baking" but know myself very well... the good, the bad, and the... rest. I am smart, curious, unpredictable, bold, clever, direct, playful, very often irreverent. I am complex, not simple, more like the rich flavors of a Tiramisu than a vanilla cupcake. I'm polished corporate, but personally err to the side of a edgy/wild child, a mischief-maker, a pot stirrer (If you look in my eyes, you can see this).
My pictures look just like me ... A little curvy (In a good way, gents), a little athletic. Truth be told, I don't love working out, but I do it, often, as I'm committed to looking and feeling my best. You've heard the expression, "Work hard, play hard"? I believe in "Exercise hard, nap hard". Now you know I'm honest, too.
A warm, willing smarty-pants. You know and live in joy. Open-minded with a generous, giving heart. A clever mind, matched by a capable and imaginative pair of hands. An interest in the greater universe, appreciative of nature, art and music. You will admit when you're wrong, and help me see when I am in a way that helps us both. You love good food, whether found in an 4 star or dive bar. Not a spectator, but an all in kind of guy. Open to new experiences and willing to partner with me to make that adventure more pleasurable.
Immeasurable love. It stretches us, makes us better together than separate. We speak our hearts openly, without fear of risk, as we feel safe with each other. I'm for you and you're for me, which means support even when the words aren't easy. Relentless, ridiculous passion... and hours of easy, endless pleasure. A look at each other from across the room communicates love, understanding, shared humor or, "Time to go". We complement each other... we just... fit.
