One of my life goals is to be in a loving relationship with a woman who treasures humour, life-long learning, closeness, travel and exploration, the beauty of a quiet moment and beautiful sight, intercultural moments, and the quirkiness of relationships. I am a kind, compassionate, and loving man who gives himself completely and openly to those I care for. There is nothing very complicated about my approach to life.
When you read my profile, you will see what I do now. But I am always growing. I look forward to meeting a wonderful woman who will introduce me to new interests. My life is not carved in stone!
I have a passion for urban walks with friends: exploring ravines, neighborhoods, ethnic eateries, and interesting cafes. Running forest trails: solo or with running group. Books: classic literature science history politics culture. World travel: on work projects and for pleasure. Experiencing a new culture: learning its history, language, geography and customs. Outdoor sports: canoeing, kayaking, hiking, cycling are past-times that I jump on at every opportunity. My family and friends are my treasures.
Perfect moments for me: Going on a long walk with a family member or close friend. To meditate in a beautiful setting. To read an amazing book! Learning about the world around me is a passion. Meeting a new friend in a coffee shop makes my day. Mustering the neighborhood "Dads" in the street for a trip to the pub is a hoot! Discussing great books and life in general at my book club meetings.
Amazing experience: running on trails with a man who was in the middle stages of Alzheimer's. A friend of a friend wondered if I would take him out for a run. We ran for 2 years until he could no longer do it. John showed me how to be grateful. [less]
