What can I tell you about me? First and foremost, I’m a gentleman
and much of what that implies – intelligent, strong, and decisive.
I may be bold at times, but I am laid back and open to suggestion.
There is an old joke about guys not asking for directions. Well, I
will - right after consulting my GPS. Seriously, a number of
friends suggested that I rewrite my profile emphasizing openness,
honesty, and integrity. I do have a rather dry sense of humor. The
woman that I am looking for has to relate to it and have her own
particular funny streak.
As for connecting, after the initial emails I prefer to hear your
voice via cell phone. It is what it is.
Another thing that you should know, I enjoy live events. Even if we
could watch the same thing on TV, it just is not the same.
What I’m doing with my life
So what am I doing with my life? Nothing at all. I just goof off.
LOL!!! If you believe that, I want to sell you a bridge...
After starting my career in accounting and financial analysis, I
moved to systems and, eventually, to starting an unrelated
business. Several years after my 1999 divorce, I went back to
school and earned my JD. I don't practice law. Rather I write for
several licensed attorneys, teach paralegals, and market financial
products. True, it can be rewarding. However, the attraction for me
is the flexibility.
I’m really good at
I listen to people. I'm not an artisan, a famous lawyer, or a
tactician in a great battle. I haven't solved differential
equations in many years. I don't have tremendous insights. I just
listen to people and act accordingly.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm calm. I keep my composure and can be objective in tough
times. (Never let them see you sweat...or cry for that matter.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
How can the same person who enjoys Beethoven, Copland, and jazz
listen so much to foreign news over the Internet and talk
As for reading, I do a lot for my job. It is good that I did a lot
of reading in my youth.
It is amazing what I have learned by reading history. I don't read
the newspapers any more. Why waste my time on the rags of our time?
I would rather go to the movies and be entertained. At least I
would know what I was getting.
As for food, I like most everything. Although I eliminated beef
last year, I will consume it when I am a guest. I love cooked
seafood and don't eat raw sushi. (I have highly limited my
consumption of chicken also.)
I do have I problem though. I like frozen yogurt too much!
The six things I could never do without
faith, my kids, a toothbrush and floss (O.K. That's really two
things, but let's lighten up.), my best friend, Chocolate, the
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Human nature. It is out of my control. However, I still think about
On a typical Friday night I am
alone, talking on the phone, or trying a new restaurant with a
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
I am in a profession that looks upon plagiarism as in the client's
interest, and therefore, good. I'll admit that I lifted the
following paragraph from another profile. I liked it that
"...you seriously want to meet someone with whom you want to be in
a relationship for the long-haul. You want a partner who is
reasonably intelligent, somewhat spontaneous, more often than not
irreverent and always passionate about life. If you want to
experience the next phase of life as an adventure, drop me a line."
