In A Nutshell
I am semi-retired, self-sufficient, mid-60s, sentimental white male who does not require but is always open to a long-term relationship with the right woman. I am a hugger of family, friends, and trees. I was raised in the Western religious tradition but am more spiritual in the Eastern tradition.
I travel for education and recreation and have traveled extensively as a single in both regards. However, in recent years it has become increasingly challenging to travel as a single, especially on cruises, where there is a substantial penalty for the single upgrade, if it is available at all. As a consequence, I am looking for a travel companion with whom I am compatible of a similar age, background, values, and interests, who is open-minded, adventuresome and interesting in her own right.
I enjoy gardening, snorkeling, movies, theater, opera, art and science museums, and educational and recreational travel that is ecologically friendly and carbon offset.
The One I Am Looking For
I am in search of an open-minded, mature, self-confident, self-sufficient, interesting, attractive, creative, reasonably healthy and fit woman who is compatible with me in all respects for travel adventures as a couple where we explore new places by day and each other by night.
I'd Just Like to Add
I love to visit new places and learn about and interact with different cultures. However, I have no knack for languages but great respect for those who do. I have a quick wit and a great sense of humor. I enjoy entertaining my friends and relatives with clever descriptions and funny observations about the situations I/we encountered, so you really had to be there, but if you were, you remember laughing a lot. I am passionate about protecting the environment and saving the planet. I am so green that Kermit the Frog pales in comparison.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
New vistas and cultures bring new perspectives and insights. I also enjoy being an emissary of open-mindedness to the people from other countries I meet and my apology tour for G.W. Bush!
News and Politics
I want to be a responsible, well-informed citizen, so these are prerequisites.
I love classical music, opera, and statues, as well as the science of archaeology behind unearthing and dating the temples, pottery, statuary, frescoes, and friezes. Most recently I visited the Chicago Art Museum and the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, because we have to respect, preserve and understand the past to enrich our present and ensure an enlightened future.
