Passionate, Chivalrous, Literate male professional seeking multiple contacts to develop friendships that lasts forever. Has tendency for run on sentence structure. Must like to read and laugh. :D
My heroes (role models) are Gandhi, Oriah Mountain Dreamer, and Adam Sandler. Do not read further if you don't find that last sentence funny!
I have loved, I have dreamed, I have lost. So, I wish to know . . .
I wish to know if you can appreciate that all the serious words below are not everything, only one layer of the onion so to speak.
I would love to hear the passions that drive you, so, for now here's "The Invitation" to respond. This reflects my interest in people. Most of whom are absolutely wonderful when given a chance. I wish to know what you ache for, if you dare to dream of meeting your hearts longing. Since my own life is becoming re-established, the children are pretty much grown, the dreams I have for the future are huge.
I wish to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain. Having been through my own pain it has made my outlook more positive. Sometimes the training is harsh but I know my inner being is better evolved, and continues to evolve.
I wish to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it. Sometimes when the days are stressful it is relaxing for me to unwind in peaceful contemplation, preferably holding a glass of Metaxa or red wine.
I wish to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human. Even such a partially evolved male as I still has weakness and a tendency to fail and not meet expectations. I have learned to accept this aspect in myself and others.
I wish to know if you can see beauty, even when it’s not pretty, every day, and if you can source your own life from its presence. There are many opportunities to choose beauty and happiness over life's trials and tribulations. Has become my observation that the worst times bring out the best in people is not just a cliché.
I wish to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!” When I fail I hope my friends can stand there and help dust me off from falling as I always try to support them. Knowing this is not always easy my patience has greatly improved over the last several years.
I wish to know that you can have a serious discussion without running away. When emotions are charged it is more important to listen than react. We all "lose it" occasionally and it is critical to step back and not just lash back. It is way too easy to think you hear and judge rather than listen and mend. Usually harsh words result from poor communication and not really listening. This area I work to improve.
I have many acquaintances and several close friends. This is an invitation to get to know me. My friends, family and I will challenge your beliefs and outlook on life. Pretty dynamic crew loaded with life’s wisdom to share.
I am outgoing, positive and somewhat critical of weak minded people. Meyers-Briggs says I am an ENFP. Most definitely not looking for a "love interest" or marriage partner. Having said that there is always room in my busy life for more friends, male and female.
Hope the above words address most of the early questions and hopefully evokes many more in depth thoughts about who I am and what getting to know me might mean. At a minimum I guarantee smiles and raucous laughter, perhaps even an occasional *** snort ***, giggle or guffaw, lol.

What I'm looking for
Hmmm, whom do I seek for shared activities that build a friendship to last a lifetime? Have to admit most of my closest friends are female, and I like it that way. The whole Visigoth male testosterone thing really makes me shake my head some days.
So, my preference for friends is ...
...... 1. Suburban moms that can learn to fly.
...... 2. Elegant ladies that love an occasional rose.
...... 3. Entrepreneurial spirit that can leap to an opportunity.
...... 4. Someone to share a activity with . . . symphony, ballet, or just wings and beer.
...... 5. A little to a lot of dysfunction . . . lol . . . it adds personality and sizzle.
...... 6. Someone who likes red wine, fine food, and music. These are my weaknesses . . . shared weaknesses match as mutual strength.
...... 7. Some classic poetry could be a shared passion. Lovelace's words To Lucasta resonate but an Asian song sung in Mandarin or Cantonese vibrates my soul. Ditto for East Indian love songs. You can feel the passion.
...... 8. Insane sense of humour, sharper the better. Careful with the sarcasm though, that can unintentionally hurt.
...... 9. Plays softball, badminton, or some sport, even cycling, swimming and jogging count as sport . . . or at least can hang with the sporty friends and be comfortable.
...... 10. Loves chicken wings, the softball team plays at a complex that has really good wings so wings are a must!
...... 11. Views a shower and beer (not necessarily in that order) after a ball game as foreplay . . . lol
12. Preference for a new friend is someone between 42 and 57 birthday parties celebrated and cherished. Yes, I understand that 39th and 49th birthdays are celebrated over and over. ;)
13. A preference for not too tall, not too short, say between 5'1" and 5'5". A little shorter is okay as I am certain you look fantastic in heels and as the song says I can worship you while "down on bended knees".If taller, understand that when you wear heels my eyes may focus inappropriately, but only with admiration and desire.
