My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Summary: open, honest, secure and understanding. Pretty good qualities, don't you think? I'm looking for the same in a partner.

A conversation is worth 10 times a profile. And there's no substitute for spending time together. Nevertheless...

** My love languages, in order (from the Book, The Five Love Languages) are:

Physical touch
Words of affirmation
Quality time
Acts of service
Gifts

I think it's important that these are pretty closely aligned between partners.

** I see myself as

honest - Honesty helps ensure a good outcome when navigating through difficult situations.

open, outgoing - I enjoy getting to know people, whether it's striking up a conversation in a public place, or walking into a mosque and introducing myself. I also find public speaking to be very rewarding.

secure in a lot of ways

both of these statements are true. 1. I'm not sure what I want. 2. I want a long term relationship, but it has to be really right. I'll communicate openly and honestly along the way.

understanding. For me, understanding is easy. Patience is really the key. We all have things we're more and less patient about. I'm not big on victim thinking, nor low communication. I'm especially patient with occasional irritability. When having a disagreement I try to stand outside of it and understand. I do like to discuss differences and appreciate someone who's secure enough to do the same.

likes cuddling. Some people are wired for touch and some people aren't. I am.

watches maybe 2 spectator sports games per year, and then only socially. An occasional live amateur game can be fun.

tends to make people feel comfortable. Women would say they feel comfortable with me right away. (References available upon request.)

likes occasional road trips to a getaway. Doesn't need to travel much abroad. Been there. One trip to Europe would be nice.

enjoys the simpler things in life.

excellent health. I'm a simple, healthy eater and would support that in a partner.

very light social drinker. Enjoys an occasional (once every few weeks-ish) microbrew. Will drink a little wine with a close friend. Other than that, usually prefers a non-alcoholic beverage.

financially stable. Would like the same in a partner.

not interested in politics.

achiever/adventurer. Formerly, in rough chronological order: running; backpacking; tour cycling; reading (some of) the classics including the entire Bible and Quran; study of Christian theology; free diving for abalone; pistol target and action shooting; gentleman ranching; Chinese style cooking; sail boat racing crew; study of psychology, counseling, and business leadership; sea kayaking, rough water paddling, kayak surfing, roll instruction; chess. Avid walker/hiker. Interested in social and intellectual activities. Latest activity is dancing; social ballroom, swing, blues.

profession - software operations engineer for 4 yrs. Before that, chemical engineer, project manager, and people manager in semiconductor and IC development for 24 yrs.

** Cautionary notes. You may not notice these right away, so it's good that I mention them.

I snore like crazy.

I'm kidding. I don't snore. (references available upon request)

I have pattern baldness in the back.

I'm an optimizer which means in areas that are important to me I can have high standards or be picky.

I like dogs, but I would never own one now. Time is a limiter as it is. If you own a dog or other high maintenance animals, we're probably not ideally compatible.

That's enough for now. Winks.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Started a new job in Portland.
Dancing
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading people.

Strong in both left brain and right brain (especially in people skills.) Not your stereotypical engineer personality.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Very comfortable to talk with.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything with great English usage. Formerly Russian and other classics in English, Terry Pratchett's Disc World series for its humor. Stories with a strong human side.

Favorite book (if there is one): War and Peace.
Mostly software study now.

Music: Pretty flexible. I enjoy seeing what you like. As for my own taste, lately, for everyday, around the house; Everlast, Stevie Ray Vaughan. For romantic, easy listening; Carla Bruni is great (I feel like I'm in a French Villa when I listen to her,) and lots of other possibilities. For reading, or deep relaxing; classical crossover vocals, classical guitar, some opera with emphasis on female vocals. Country, folk, oldies, offbeat stuff, all ok. Not into metal nor the nastier hiphop. Though I grew up with it, and enjoyed it up through my 40s, not that into classic rock any more. Some of it is still ok, especially if you like it. Favs in this genre would be Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin.

Movies: Forest Gump was great : ). Anything Tom Hanks is good. Movies based on true stories. Dramas. Intrigue.

TV: Didn't have a TV for 6 months, then bought a smart TV, right now with internet only (Hulu, Amazon video, TED talks, YouTube...) Watching a movie together at home can be nice. I've liked Lost series, social/competition shows; Survivor, Master Chef. When I had cable; Chopped, Bachelor/Bachelorette. For laughter; Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, How I Met Your Mother, Shameless. For drama; Homeland, Southland, Nurse Jackie.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The female gender
Computers, internet, smart phone
Hiking boots

Books
Music
Human interaction
Human touch
Intellectual activity
Outdoors and nature
Leeway to break the rules. (Am I up to 6 yet?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Oh my, this is best done lying on a blanket looking at the stars.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
out with you?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

update: Darn, the fungus is gone! Now I need a new private thing.

earlier I wrote...

I have a fungus..., wait, never mind.

OK fine, on one big toenail. Just a little bit, honest. it's almost gone. (Visual inspection available upon request.)

Oh, and my first name is Paul (you can call me fungus toe)
