My self-summary
(Insert pithy quote): Oh darn, I'm out of pith!

Pleased to meet a fellow single (unmarried) childless professional for LT companionship. I have a wonky sense of humor some call "a bit British." I'm successful, intellectual, and generally friendly.

I live Eastside, in my dream home purchased not too many years ago. Nice to finally have a garden. My catnip and strawberries are finally peeking out as spring creeps in. Speaking of meow, I am friend to most critters great and small: adopted two adorable, affectionate Turkish Angora mixes end of 2012.

M-B ISTP: best friend refers to me as "the Ranger". The women I've clicked best with across the decades are fellow independents, intense but presentable introverts, and/or erudite rebels who desire partnership without smothering. I am the polar opposite of "shy" yet appreciate daily quiet time, around my somewhat-social career (management, software).

If you own a H-D, earned a PhD in astrophysics, or have another interesting hobby or belief system, definitely do write: eclectic women catch my attention.

Good sense of style. Calm, decisive, etc.: "A good guy, with a bit of dark side." Love to drive and motorcycle to interesting places, near and far, when feasible. Trips of less than five hundred miles are 'portable getaways', a long weekend day or overnight. Maybe more travel-time this year, to include both me and a partner. Hiking and outdoors: oh yes! Was reading about snowshoeing and realize every time I think the opportunity wanes, more snow falls (very late this year). Bound and determined to try it eventually.

I've embraced a bit of chaos, past 5-10 years, and life is far more-interesting: a little uncertainty sweetens the adventure. Appreciate your patience with that, if everything doesn't always go per "the plan." I've yet to have life flow precisely the way I wanted, though have thus far hit all the big milestones (and for that, I'm thankful).
What I’m doing with my life
Well, I have a busy career that keeps me occupied: life is not all duckies and bunnies, hence the phrase "That's why they call it work." Otherwise, discovering an odd hole-in-the-wall (restaurant, boutique, gallery, etc.) in greater Seattle area or other great city, on-occasion. Having a terrific time stimulating the creative juices decorating my house and otherwise energizing the artsy-side. I'm close to bus lines and love both Seattle and especially Eastside (Kirkland being a cool downtown people-place).
I’m really good at
...Most things I put my hand to. Not everything; failure is a great learning opportunity, too.
...(Still haven't gotten around to) voice lessons, I might have a bit of talent never fully-developed.
...I'm a tolerable photographer. Excuse the selfies in my profile, however.
...I get results and seem to be respected for it.
...I have an excellent 'Spidey Sense' for BS, and simply won't be 'worked' or otherwise manipulated.

"Nothing happens to a man he is not fitted by nature to bear."
The first things people usually notice about me
Nice shoes? My orthodontia? Blue eyes? Who knows. Oh, I have a "cute nose", supposedly. Finally, this year, the ortho stuff comes off. I'm torn whether to try Costa Rica for porcelain veneers or stay local (huge cost difference, same quality).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Dan Simmons, Charles Murray, Michael Mann or Christopher Nolan (anything). I don't have cable, but enjoy movies. Progressive rock. '80s and '90s hard stuff: Rush! Always up for trying new restaurants; sushi and great breakfast joints are special favorites. I run a mean grill, not unlike most guys. Spicy-anything.
The six things I could never do without

2. Pets, preferably cats. A man who can't care for a living (something) is probably not too useful to another human either.
3. Gadgets. Yes, that guy-thing. You have shoes, I have Android.
4. Toys that go vrooom! and vent hydrocarbons. I cull the herd every few years...
5. My (very few) close friends. I have no family.
6. I get great kicks from occasional motorcycling and sports car jaunts: would be hugely helpful if you'd participate, or at least have my back that I need to periodically indulge this. my No. 1, perhaps?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
First of the year, I made a job change. It is a total seller's market for what I do, but the process tuckers me out emotionally.

I'm stronger with a supportive partner than without, and think on that (fundamental truth) from time to time. Life's rewards and challenges are best shared.
On a typical Friday night I am
When single, primary Friday activities are pretty quiet. A good book, hot tub time, a movie (in or out), sometimes theater or other shows. When with someone I care about, probably a bit more in than out, but it's also special to catch various events as a couple and hold hands (smile). Isn't that a grand feeling? Common theme is "small groups and 1:1", mostly.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Covered that in the "I spend a lot of time thinking about" section. Maybe the gnomes living under my deck? Wait, they're ceramic. Hmph.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 35–46
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if are a fellow professional, by-definition a well-rounded person and presentable. are a believer in excellence. Comfortable with intellectual pursuits, upper middle class values, etiquette, etc.

If...intelligence and ambition don't intimidate. You're a doer, which also means dealing well with failure: some of the most interesting people have overcome great obstacles. didn't post a picture holding a bottle of liquor, cigarette, or other vulgarity. I'm not against sports or partying, in moderation, but a bit too much is definitely déclassé.'ll get out of your comfort zone occasionally. See 'Chaos' comments, earlier.
