Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Love is our finest instinct... a magically sensible urge, designed
by nature to keep special people we know we can depend on close.
I've been in no hurry, but would benefit a great deal by getting
off OKCupid with a lovely girlfriend. 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, common goals... sensuality, warmth and humor.
A woman who loves simple pleasures, likes me out of all proportion,
and finds it fun and easy to be together.
An appreciator of classic feminine style... culottes and Capri
pants... silk scarves, and feline sophistication, I thrill to the
company of a younger woman who’s stylish, a little urbane and still
looking forward in life. You're hip, confident, educated and down
to earth... creative and cool with a playful spirit and liberal
values. You find conservative political values uninteresting and
unacceptable in someone you respect, and world culture, art and
music compelling, exciting and important.
I'm a successful professional in arts and culture, well regarded in
my field, but not in the white collar, suit and tie mold. More
suede and camel hair... tweeds and turtlenecks. I have a naturally
slender build and find myself quite attracted to the same.
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. 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... a wicked wit and
playful spirit... loyalty, curiosity and intellect. And what
everyone wants in a girlfriend... affection and excitement,
frivolity, love and enchantment. Friendships thrive on generosity
and cultivation, but physical attraction and chemistry is the
necessary recipe to start... the divine spark for a connection
that's exclusive, unique and special.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an art conservator in a public institution.
I’m really good at

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 online I like 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 in and around WDC, which is a soul town, and really love
Classic Soul and Old School R&B. And Symphony... Especially
Russian romantic symphony Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov, and German
of course... Beethoven's Pastoral #6. And Italian Opera... Verdi
Nice food is always 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... the austere streak.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
