Dating Me

Dating Me Will Look Like:


I’m a musician who loves gathering friends for evenings of good food, friendship, and singing.  I love ecstatic dance and music festivals. Trying food of all kinds is one of life’s greatest pleasures and traveling is another.  I enjoy soaking in a hot spring or skinny-dipping under a waterfall.  A good adventure brings me joy, and finding a loving, smart, liberal adventurous partner would make it all that much better.  I’m interested in your passions and all the interesting things that make you tick.  Let’s discover all of these things together!

I’m a good person who treats others with kindness and I look for companions who feel the same.

I’m 61, Live in Portland, Oregon (for 20 years), like kids, and have never had any of my own. I’m a solopreneur (I run my own business), and I’m seeking someone who feels some resonance with the lists below. Feel free to pass this along to someone you think would be a good fit. Thank you!

  1. Smart, high emotional + intelligence quotients
  2. Likes being massaged (don’t let these hands go to waste!)
