60, Kent, WA"So long status quo, I think you've got to go. The way it always was is no longer good enough." My status quo is going to go in a much better direction as soon as I find you! I strive to live by the better angels of my nature. I have notions of one last great romance. Like a lyric from a favorite song, "the rig's a little older, but that don't mean she's slow." More steady than slow now at nearly 60. After more than half a century, I have figured out my life and now that I have, the best is yet to come. I am a romantic who can still put a blush on a cheek, more swing in a gate and make a heart beat faster! I love history and often teach it (and MBA courses) as a college professor and dept. chair. I am emotionally strong, assertive and still ambitious. I seldom seek the approval of others and march to the beat of my own drum. My rhythm is generally smooth, soft and steady; however, I am still passionate and will ramp up when inspired. I am well educated, informed, empathetic, intelligent, persuasive, articulate, and good looking. I love learning, discovering and exploring and still have unmet goals. One goal I am working on is completing a masters in psychology to begin anew career as a therapist. The other one is meeting you. Friends and colleagues say I have a warm personality, calm demeanor, and giving heart. Many will say I am fun to be with. I love nature, pets, sports, music, movies, comedy, museums, cooking, walking, service, irony and humor. I am multi-faceted, creative, and industrious. I can be irreverent (usually at pretense or arrogance). I make delicious pasta, enjoy an occasional beer or scotch, love football and baseball, antiques, the Civil War and New Frontier. My bucket list includes "you", sailing, visiting every MLB park in the US in an RV, finishing a book and script I began writing, going to Ireland, learning to make French sauces (not sausages) and attending a Jersey Boys Broadway play, even if it is in Des Moines, Iowa. I am fond of Asian culture, the Navy, biographies, and history. I have a strong intellect, without arrogance or pretense. I think I have a great sense of humor; the dry and witty type. I am quick with whatever life is in front of me and have an intuitive sense for people and situations. I am usually open-minded, curious, flexible, accepting, and friendly. Faith, spirituality, community, service, and teaching are still important to me. Help me cross "you" off my bucket list and sing with me "Oh What What A Night!"
68, Yakima, WAI am an active guy in above average health I enjoy a variety of activities that support that lifestyle, including running, biking, hiking, skiing, among others. My love of the outdoors comes from my country-boy upbringing and working with my dad and grandfather as a young boy on our ranch. I have traveled far and wide all over the US and across both oceans multiple times. It's still hard to beat the Pacific Northwest and four seasons. I have a strong military background as an officer and served several years on active duty and the reserves. The many and varied responsibilities I had has served me well for worldly experience and other life skills. I plan on working as a remodeling contractor for at least the near future. I am looking for a lady with an active and healthy lifestyle to share similar interests as well as more quiet times over good conversation, dinner, a glass of wine, and nice easy music. All this needs to be centered around a mutually shared faith and spirituality in a loving relationship.

29, Bellevue, WANote: I know my temperament test says I'm a choleric sanguine, but I've got a hefty dose of melancholy in there too. I think I was just having one of my saucy days when I took that test. For followers of MBTI, I'm a INTP. I'm a fun and intellectual person who enjoys all kinds of heady conversations. I am particularly interested in: literature as a means of influencing culture, the power of stories, the similarities between the political far right and far left, how to communicate Catholic truth to non-Catholics (Natural Law, etc.), caring for and educating youth, history, sustainable agriculture, and the beauty of the natural world. I feel very driven in my life to make a positive difference, which is mainly taking the shape of writing and establishing intentional agrarian Catholic communities. Regardless of whether we get together romantically, if you have any experience with such a community you should message me. I'd love to hear about what worked and what didn't! Something you should know right off the bat about me is that I have Fibromyalgia, which basically means I have low energy. Sometimes it's not something anyone would notice, and other times it's a very big deal - it just depends on how much stress I'm facing. I've been addressing it from multiple aspects of my life, and have made some progress, but it's a journey and one that requires flexibility and lots of understanding from other people in my life. However, this condition does not define me or prevent me from contributing to the world in meaningful ways, it just changes the dynamics a bit and forces me to have good self-care and not be a martyr. So if you're looking for someone who will be your mom and do everything for you, look elsewhere. I am totally open to discussing this more in the context of a relationship, but be aware that I can give very few absolutes on it since, as a condition, it is still very poorly understood, and my own personal experience with it fluctuates. I'm a fan of meeting in person fairly soon after connecting online, in part because I think there is something really special about what happens when two people meet "in the flesh" and partly because I try to circumvent my propensity for endless browsing on websites, including CM, by not being on them.
