Free Spirit in Rogers Park seeks romance

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! Child of the 60's, do-gooder, adventurous (Returned Peace Corps Volunteer), artist, financially secure, home owner, ,Chicago north side. ... I live in Rogers Park, just south of Evanston. steps from the Lake & L. See if you can get to my 'hood in less than an hour. Not interested in a long distance relationship. Proximity is important.
I am not replying to anyone without a photo.i may ask for more. If you don't look like your photo, I will call you out.
You must be a dog lover (I live with 2 sighthounds), understand that I am a dog trainer. I am not a dog collector.
I am never bored. There are not enough hours in the day. I AM NOT LONELY.
Interests include movies, travel (especially less developed countries) some music (jazz, Steely Dan, Queen, some metal, big band), visual arts, reading, writing, travel, ethnic dinners with friends, scrabble, investing, .
Most of my work career has been managing small businesses, modeling for artists, and grooming and training dogs.

My friends say I am sarcastic and cynical, but funny, and describe my house as decorated in a mix of French whorehouse and hippie crash pad.
I will retire in 2021 (currently working part-time) and hope to travel at least twice a year. Having been an 'other' most of my life, interested in 'others'---meaning not actively Christian..going to church,identifying as more than culturally Christian. I am not interested in the 'out-doorsy type, someone who makes watching sports on TV a priority, or Trump voter.
I have had the same male roommate for almost 20 years. We are not a couple. It is a platonic relationship. I will explain if we choose to meet.
I rarely dress up, and if I do, I wear a Shalwar Khameez. I don't own a pair of high heels.
I give as good as I get. Reliability is important to me.
