Meet in public place for brief visit.
Figure I'm finally old enough to discover what women are all about. Perhaps something to do with these lyrics from Victor Herbert's song in his 1910 Operetta "Naughty Marietta":
"Ah! Sweet mystery of life, at last I've found thee; Ah, I know at last the secret of it all; All the longing, seeking, striving, waiting, yearning; The burning hopes, the joy and idle tears that fall!; For 'tis love, and love alone, the world is seeking; And 'tis love, and love alone, that can repay!; 'Tis the answer, 'tis the end and all of living; For it is love alone that rules for aye!".
OK, maybe not! Desirable partner qualities: moderately active; likes outdoors; healthy lifestyle; natural/organic foods; generally cheerful; tolerant attitude (especially for this knucklehead?); non-tobacco; minimal alcohol. Portland Oregon area. Thanks for reading this!

Volunteering, helping others, charity.
Volunteer work. Helping others. Less than usual physical aches. Cross something off my long to-do list.
