My description:

Single white male, 56, 6 ft., 175 lbs; an in-shape runner.  Ph. D. in Psychology, college instructor and mathemtical tutor.  I enjoy mountain climbing, hiking, working out, a variety of fiction and non-fiction, Thai and Ethiopian food (love injera!), table tennis, chess, mathematical recreation.    

Gauging chemistry online is impossible.  We can match up extremely well on paper, but not click romantically in person.  Most of what I say below is with my search for a long-term partner in mind.  But I'm also open to more casual dating, making friends, and having fun!  Partners for hiking, climbing, dinner, movies, a talk by an author at Powell's, and other random common interests would be great too. 

The above is especially true given that I just did my first semi-serious search,  and made it for non-smoking women within 50 miles of Portland.  There weren't many, and exactly EIGHT had even logged in to this site this year, and only ONE this MONTH!  So, yikes, I'm afraid no one is reading this, I don't know how the pickings are for women seeking men, but if you are reading this, you might as well message me and maybe meet for coffee!  That said...

A woman I could really make a deep connection with for a long-term relationship would be compassionate first.  Intelligent also.  Non-judgmental, and really believing everyone is OK and inherently worthy, even if at times their actions aren't.  Also someone like me who is an activist in some sense--passionately driven to help others and make the world a better place.  Also, somone who really wants to communicate deeply--share their feelings, fears, hopes, dreams.  As I get older, I find people I meet seem more and more ready to settle into something "comfortable."  Better in some ways than being single, I guess, but that doesn't excite me.   

About me:

 I consider myself altruistic, compassionate, and tender-minded.  Besides being an ethical vegan, I volunteer time to social causes, contribute financially as I can to worthy causes, and think a lot about how to do the most good with my life.  Alleviating human suffering and animal suffering are both important to me.  I'm a very good listener.   

I'm an intellectual type, and I'm curious about many things.  I enjoy mathematical and other types of puzzles and brain teasers, read widely, enjoy philosophical discussions.  I enjoy new experiences, whether it is trying different type of (vegan) food, learning about other cultures, or growing by trying new things that new people in my life introduce me to.  I'm very moved by the beauty of nature, which is the main reason I love hiking and mountain climbing. 

I'm fairly driven and ambitious, but struggle with procrastination (and have learned a lot about how to deal with it).  I'm ambitious to make a difference in the world.  It would be great to have a partner who is the same, and to support each other in that.

Middle of the road but probably more introverted than extroverted.  I enjoy excitement:  roller coasters, bouldering, and want to try sky diving.  But can be pretty introverted too.  Enjoy my alone time.

I can be pretty sensitive--something that I think helps me be sensitive to the feelings of others.  Have done a lot of self-work on dealing with feelings sadness and anxiety that plagued me more when I was younger.

My ethical philosophy is utilitarian.  Pollitically, that generally puts me pretty far left of center.  Yet I also believe in understanding those who are different from me, and that includes people have different moral intuitions that lead them to different political positions than my own.  I have friends on the opposite side of the political spectrum.  

A woman I could really make a deep connection with for a long-term relationship would be compassionate first.  Intelligent also.  Non-judgmental, and really believing everyone is OK and inherently worthy, even if at times their actions aren't.   

 

Seeking:

Being an ethical vegan is a great start!  Besides that, sharing some of my interests.  Someone who really want to share her inner as well as out journey.  A woman I could really make a deep connection with would be compassionate first.  Intelligent also.  Non-judgmental, and really believing everyone is OK and inherently worthy, even if at times their actions aren't.
