I'm youthful, energetic, and curious about life, other people,
other places. I love to travel--weekend getaways and further afield
to Europe, etc., I enjoy my work because I get to make a
contribution as well as being challenged and appreciated once in a
while, I cherish my friends, and enjoy my eclectic interests. The
best parts about me are that I'm smart, have a great sense of
humor, and that I'm a loyal friend. I'm kind, caring, giving, and
affectionate. Life is short--I'd like to make the most of it--and
would love to share with a partner. But I'm looking for a
relationship, not a roll in the hay.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a psychologist and work with prison inmates. And, yes, I have
lots of good stories. I also do workers compensation evaluations in
my private practice. I really want to travel more--recently visited
Spain and, before that, Morocco and was fascinated by the mix of
cultures--plus I got to practice my French a bit, ride a camel, and
take a Turkish bath in a medina. I discovered blues music about two
years ago and am somewhat addicted to it. I work out on a regular
basis--began practicing yoga two years ago--to atone for my sins in
the food and wine departments and to center. I read the NY Times,
the New Yorker, and love a good mystery. Loved Midnight in
Paris--saw it twice, which I never do--and wanted it to never end.
I love to eat, cook, drink good wine, entertain, shop, go to art
museums, and dance. And I love to be with my friends. I also love
dogs--don't have one at the moment but happy to adopt yours.
I’m really good at
I'm good at having fun and seeing the humor of the moment, mainly
with good friends and not at anyone's expense. I'm good at being a
good friend, being competent, resourceful, and tenacious. I tend to
be pretty direct, at least when I know you, but I'm also sensitive
to other's feelings. I should mention that I also have a good eye

The six things I could never do without
I could do with less. That said, I wouldn't want to be without my
survival skills, my sense of humor, something beautiful to look at,
and someone to share with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My connections with people, places I want to visit, the lessons of
my life, and what I want to do next.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't think there's a "typical." I might be having a friend over
for a glass of wine that turns into ordering pizza, going out for a
casual dinner, going to listen to some blues. Could even be surfing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'd let your dog sleep on the bed.
You should message me if
You're really a nice guy with a good sense of humor, smart, and
interested in a relationship. No Republicans, never-marrieds, or
someone looking for just sex.
