Honest, sincere, genuine, confident, and very easy to get along with, while maintaining a positive outlook on life. A true gentleman, whose also warm and courteous - charming and charismstic - at least, so I've been told. Financially comfortable (retired Military. then my own business.) Not a couch potato, in good health, practice fittness regularly (no "Buddha belly.") and maintains good hygiene. Still an old school romantic, who believes in the "Golden Rule,' - "glass is half full" and that "the best is yet to come!!!". I'm a good listener, empathetic, love to laugh, dislikes confrontation, not a serial dater - and am openly affectionate. Not looking for a "nurse OR a purse," nor am I a "sugar daddy." Still care enough to hold hands at the movies, a hug or a kiss for no particular reason and, send flowers, just because you're you. I enjoy an evening out, as well as an intimate evening at home. Love to dance - avid photographer - enjoy the arts, nature, travel, a crossword/sudoku addict, and a spy/espionage novel reader. I'm articulate, a stylish dresser and considered quite youthful for my age. Definitely not ready to retire from life! I'm very active, especially since my mind, attitudes and desires have not yet caught up with my years. Physical, intellectual, emotional chemistry, and intimacy are still equally important to me. Hoping to share life's pleasures, and who I am, with someone who would be a wonderful addition to my life - and I to theirs. FYI: I breathe on my own, stand/walk erect, and yes - I DO drive at night, and am NOT directionally impaired - All in all, the quintessential mensch!
