How are you different from most people ?
My mother was a considered an exercise fanatic and a health nut. Mom raised us on low fat, healthy food. I took it to a new level. Thanks, Mom!
Instead of buying processed food, I cook from scratch at home. As much as possible, I eat organic fruits and vegetables in season. Organic strawberries are the best! Also buy natural eggs and meat with no sodium, preservatives, growth hormones, preservatives, etc.
So, I have never smoked, avoid alcohol and never drink soda pop. Also, don't eat deep fried food, fast food, hamburgers, donuts or pizza: all the high fat, processed, sugary junk foods that Americans love.
My dad died of colon cancer at age 51. I was 24. Immediately I eliminated from my diet preserved meats with cancer-causing nitrites and nitrates. Bacon, ham, pepperoni, salami, etc. Once a year, I enjoy a rib-eye steak when finding morel mushrooms in the spring. Sauté the morels with olive oil, butter and garlic. WOW!
Bottom line- a healthy lifestyle gets results. Exercise and enjoy eating healthy, whole foods. Protect your skin from the sun. Drink lots of water. Be optimistic and upbeat. Have fun! It shows.
In 2018, I set a personal record by hiking 326 miles with 63,210 feet of elevation gain. "Don't slog in the bog. Get high on the ridges!" has been my hiking motto since age 21.
I've been told many times by many different people that I'm not like most men. I guess that makes me different.
I'm real, open, and honest about who I am. I've worked very hard to get here and the way I figure it, if others don't like me, that's not my issue. So I have nothing to hide. I won't say what I think you want to hear. I won't lead you on. You can ask me anything and I won't give you a bullshit answer. I don't play games and I keep drama on the stage, which is the only place drama belongs.
I look and act younger than I am. Most of my friends are younger than me. I'm 420-friendly, don't care what gender you identify as... my only requirements for friends are that you have a brain and ethics. I'm a Progressive Liberal Socialist. I recycle everything I can. I say what's on my mind. I love who I am. I love my friends fiercely and with abandon. I'm open to new experiences and ideas. I'll try almost anything once. I am an Ally. My friends are gay, straight, bi, trans, poly, fluid... in other words, people. They do not, however, include narrow-minded bigots or Trump supporters (am I being redundant?).
I'm an actor, I sing Karaoke, I live for real and honest conversations, usually on my deck in the trees or in front of my fireplace over a bottle of wine or two. I'm told I'm comfortable, ethical, respectful, accepting, and safe. I know what no means and won't push myself on anyone. I am an Ally. I'm not afraid to look at myself and change anything that doesn't suit me.
Geeze..... i guess its economic failure. I kept training for new jobs and took on opportunities outside my trades. However you put it...fear was my motive. I couldnt be without money when i knew how i needed it to live comfortably. i could be my worst nightmare.
I'm probably somewhere on the autistic scale, the Asperger Syndrome. There is no way for an adult to test for it in my country so I'm just guessing. I'm honest and not tactful, intelligent but not clever. Old age has allowed me to remove myself from society apart from necessary dealings, but nonetheless I keep an eye out for more solid contact.
I am all the way out of the closet. No going back. I suppose growing up in a family business made me a public person long before I nailed down my political vision. Going to peace meetings in religious buildings seemed like calls to action but everytime a prEyer or benediction was given, I felt the attendance was dumbed down to ineptitude....so when Dr Madalyn Eads Murray O'Hair came to my town 1981, I resolved to end the hatred towards Atheists by making Atheism popular as science or birthday cakes....I did not win my election campaigns but we have made a great difference in Iowa, Charleston and WDC....I am lonely different from all the other lonely ones here because none see the connection between romance and politics
