Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Love is our finest instinct... a transcendently sensible urge,
designed by nature to keep people we know we can depend on close.
Divorced for more than ten years with no children, I’m looking for
shared values and intimacy in a woman whose qualities reflect my
own. A partner in crime to share special times and common purpose,
sensuality, warmth and humor. A woman who loves simple pleasures,
likes me out of all proportion, and finds it fun and easy to be
I appreciate classic feminine style and feline sophistication, and
thrill to the company of a younger woman who’s stylish, a little
cosmopolitan and still looking forward in life. You're confident,
educated and down to earth... creative and cool with a playful
spirit and liberal values, and find conservative political values
uninteresting in someone you respect, and world culture, art and
music compelling, exciting and important.
I'm a professional in arts and culture. Culturally aware but prefer
simple things… drive a ragtop, enjoy day trips and use my turn
signal even when no one's looking. And I can enjoy a good red ale
or craft beer, but prefer wine, and like my humor dry. Have a
naturally slender build and a natural attraction for the same. I
also love nature, but am not into roughing it and prefer a warm bed
and a shower in the morning and the company of a woman who's
consciously feminine and likes to spoon.
I want what everyone wants in a best friend... wicked wit and
playful spirit... loyalty, curiosity and intellect. And what
everyone wants in a girlfriend... affection and excitement,
frivolity, love and enchantment. Friendship thrives on generosity
and cultivation, but physical attraction and chemistry is the
divine spark for a connection that's special and unique.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Hmmm.. My taste.
I tend to read nonfiction and have an art history background, but
easy and accessible taste, and enjoy the Sunday NYT... The
Atlantic... and Salon. Some favorites books are... John Berger
"Ways of Seeing"; John Dewey "Art as Experience"; and always the
writings of William James.
I grew up around DC, which is a soul town, and really love Classic
Soul and Old School R&B... and Symphony. Especially Russian:
Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov, and German of course... Beethoven's
Pastoral #6. Italian Opera... Verdi and Puccini!
Nice food is nice, and wine is wonderful too, though I don't drink
much and prefer to eat something lean and healthy. Can’t call
myself a foodie though, since I can simply forget to eat if I'm
really focused elsewhere.

Music and Arts
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing at home with a glass of wine.
