Addressing common gotchas: I am single. No wives, existing girlfriends, bastard red-headed children, or major skeletons in the closet. Not into 'hookups' or other adolescent hi-jinks.
I'm a decent guy, independent and reserved (Myers Briggs ISTP). Insatiable reader and curious/inquisitive about the 'why' of most everything. Senior manager at Microsoft, meaning I live and breathe tech. I can be quite industrious, or equally lazy via enjoying my home and/or quiet-time with someone special.
Better, fun stuff: I am financially solvent, in fact doing quite well. Ivy League, successful, rather dark sense of humor. I live in a cozy home in Kirkland...my dream place, bought a few years ago after much saving and keeping an eye on the goal. I really enjoy three or four day jaunts with a special lady, mostly local WA and OR but farther (or is it further?) afield from time to time, too. Well-traveled, U.S./Canada/Western Europe.
In brief, I AM an intellectual rogue, and above all else always uber-professional. Independent, a bit cool in the affection department (not touchy-feely), more of a show-affection-by-doing type. I AM NOT a jerk or psycho, into excessive sports/barbarism, liquor, partying, or 99% of what other guys seem to live for. I AM a fun date, with a quirky sense of humor: yes, I can make you laugh. I seldom take anything that does not matter terribly seriously. Impress me with your ability to present, intellect, poise, and integrity: you’ll be head and shoulders above your peers and we’ll get along well.
