Summary: have PhD; in own business; I have written some 30 books and leadership programs. I also write poetry; I have a deep and abiding interest in philosophy - such as issues of causality in social science, and the structure of a general theory of psychology and the nature of the human spirit; I gym regularly; two children, both grown and two grandchildren family is important to me. I am a keen fly fisherman, trout in winter, and salt water fly fishing in summer.
I like to read science fiction, go to movies, occasional shows, browsing art galleries and craft centres, and retail therapy is always good; I enjoy travel, love weekends out of Auckland, especially Bay of Islands and north.
I am at peace with myself, I am far from perfect, but I know my flaws and I am comfortable with them, bit like that old jacket, you know it and it feels good.
I accept people as they are and enjoy the uniqueness of each person, but I do not abide games from people whether they are political or psychological and have tendency to put such people in their place (one of my flaws), I am honest and consistent in that I will say what I do and do what I say that sort of integrity is very important to me.
Ideal match description:
Females aged between 48 and 60.
Someone to share the rest of my life in peace and contentment (with lots of passion, since I do enjoy sensual intimacy). My priorities are my partner and seeing her happy, my children and grand children, my work and close friends with whom to laugh and enjoy companionship.
I am seeking someone to whom I can commit, build trust, love and adore and constantly find ways to have her feel cherished, treasured above all, and to have her laugh out loud every day.
I enjoy afternoons exploring art galleries then share long intimate dinner for hours as time flies by - at a favourite restaurant then as the restaurant empties, dancing around the tables.
I can be impulsive with public and private displays of affection.
I trust my judgement and my instincts and so after exchanging on site and a few meetings I could offer appreciation and serious interest. If this unsettles you, or causes anxiety as too fast, then likely we not right. (I am as my age states and I expect people I exchange with to be equally confident of their instincts and judgements so that we should not require months of exchange before meeting, and months of meetings before deciding if any interest.)
