Hi Walter!
What does the term “Bear” mean to you?

“I categorize bear as in au natural. With minimal hyper grooming.”

What’s your idea of a perfect date?

“I always like to meet guys in a public setting even if I met them off of online apps. I love to go to hike or coffee so we can establish a connection. I’m not big in dinner dates or formality with dating. I don’t drink or party (but I still like to get ratchet at the bars and clubs) so that’s what I’m looking for in men. Someone who is alive and not checked out of life. I’m a no pressure let’s just see if we can connect as humans kinda man.”

“If it has an animal or natural vibe then it’s in my home. I’m not into modern cold pretentious decor.”
