Well, I'm sad, sick, hate life, have so much baggage I drive an old Greyhound Buss for all my baggs. My ol' cracked glass is so half empty its a dribble glass with mold. Are you looking for an emotionally dead, totally dysfunctional, co-dependant dead ended life? Well Honey, your barkin' up the wrong tree, Because...I am Happy, healthy, I like myself, try to enjoy life. See the glass half full (if it dribbles, I laugh!) come with a fair bit of experience in life but very little baggage. I am an American nudist/naturalist, young-at-heart-and-mind, single man interested in exploring the many things that life can bring with the young-at-heart of all ages. I love the stories about growing up in the "good ole days". I have lived in Pasadena, California and Spokane, Washington, USA, but I moved to Visalia, California to learn to drive big trucks. I would like to meet all people (including other nudists/naturalists) in this area and other areas. My interests are very diverse!! I like archaeology, Bible history & research, figure skating, walks on the beach, romantic movies and being naked(living normal, everyday life without the comberances of clothing while doing it). Seeking someone to share common interests: i.e. long hugs, romantic walks, intelectual subjects, or just silly fun (I'm thinking tickle party, pillow fights, SLOW full body massage, cuddling). I also like Star Trek(all series), Star Gate SG-1, Star Gate Atlantis, long romantic walks, reading, learning new things, meeting new people, beautiful sunsets & sunrises... oh, yes, and LONG HAIR!!!!!!!!!!(I AM A GONNER FOR LONG HAIR; like putty in your hands!!! An ideal relationship is one where two people want to be there for the other even after a long tiring day of work. One where two people can trust each other completely to honestly share and talk through their individual thoughts without hurt feelings or taking it personally or being offended. A type of love only a sense of maturity can bring. I've learned that what I "perceive" a person is thinking can be way off and I should just ask and NEVER assume and if I change my mind I need to be sure others are aware of it in time to make their own choices. A good communication tip is: If the other person doesn't answer they probably didn't hear you or are not paying attention and you need to try another approach. I believe the woman is the backbone (extra rib) to any good relationship, and, men should never be abusive or a dictator in any relationship. "Never judge a book by the cover!!" There's a lot more interesting stuff to MY book than can be judged by the outside appearance. But if the outside appearance is what attracts a person to me then check out my pics!! Ask me for more if you like!!! When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "He's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful...I think he's armed." Here are my thoughts on some things: LOVE: I need a WOMAN that will love me and ONLY me and be faithful to me and ONLY me through all the stuff life brings OUR way. TRUST: I need a WOMAN that I can trust. Somebody that I can talk to when I'm going thru good and bad times, that has the wisdom to know WHAT should be kept private. UNDERSTANDING: I need a WOMAN that will take time to understand me. SECURE: I need a WOMAN that wants to make sure I feel secure in our relationship and I will do the same for her. FAITHFULNESS: I don't have to worry about her going out cheating on me or leaving me for another man. Her heart belongs to me and ONLY me. RESPECT: I need a WOMAN that will respect me. If a WOMAN does not respect her man then she cannot truly love him; the same goes for the man. HONESTY: I need a WOMAN that will be completely honest with me. I'd rather know the truth up-front even though it may hurt my feelings than to find out a lie later. I want to slowly take time get to know a woman and then to be more intimate with her without hurrying. I've learned to get away from looking for only the sexiness of a woman and be more interested in the person she IS and to be very respectful to a woman and treat her with chivalry and become a friend to her first and then see where that leads; I like to take time with a relationship. I AM my true self from the start without the fakeness of the "first-dating" imitation stuff. I LOVE opening the door for a woman whether its a woman that I'm dating or a woman that approaches a door I'm approaching. I WILL hold the door for her and let her go through it first as a proper gentleman does. I WILL be honest with you from the word "Hello". True love does NOT happen in one night or in one day... true love happens like a flower -- it is first PLANTED and then NURTURED and then as time passes, true love GROWS into a full and beautiful flower and BLOSSOMS into a relationship that will last for the rest of their lifetime(or for time and all eternity(LDS)). Marriage is the BEGINNING BUD of family life; parenthood is its FLOWER and then becomes a beautiful BOUQUET when graced with grandchildren. I LOVE to be romantic and affectionate. I'm not out for the "one-night-stand" crap or an "easy lay", but I do enjoy the intimate company of a woman. I especially enjoy looking into her eyes and seeing what she is thinking, and then tell her what she is thinking. I can usually determine that connection the first time I touch her, not from the traditional hand-shake intro stuff, but a more carressing of her skin. It's like -- holding her hand to help her stand up, and then looking into her eyes when she is standing, wanting so much to kiss her and hold her in my arms with the deepest, most intense hug that reaches to her very soul, then softly touching her hair, and seeing in her eyes how she feels about me even without her saying a word.
