My self-summary
Cogito, ergo sum.....I think, therefore I am. Descartes would no doubt be troubled by mankind's evolution (or lack thereof) over the 400 years since he made his observation (BTW if portraits are correct, he bears a stunning resemblance to Sylvester Stallone). Ooops, uh, never mind this is supposed to be a dating site profile.

Introspection is not one of my strengths despite a penchant for reviewing past interactions gone askew. Like most others I find it difficult to provide a "Cliffs Notes" personal profile. I would suggest that reading my matching questions as a viable avenue for assessing my values*.

During the course of my career I discovered that success in any endeavor is the result of both aptitude and attitude. An abundance or either will most often provide positive results. However, when there is a synergy of both, results are often exceptional. Based upon performance evaluations, I have been blessed with an aptitude for those challenges I chose to accept. My achievements have been the result of pairing an above average aptitude with a singular, focused attitude.......to be fair that means that I'm a "one trick pony".
Multitasking is something I avoid as I hate to re-plow freshly tilled soil.

I arrived at my present station after a failed marriage of 35 years and a 38-year career in banking (I retired before the stench of Wall Street became overpowering, but the cesspool existed even then). "There's been a load of compromising of the road to my horizon"..............with apologies to Glenn Campbell.

Although I'm left-brain dominant, I envy creative people as much for the manner in which they process thought(s) as their artistic talent. I'm moderate in most of my philosophies and reject the lunatic fringe both right and left (everyone has the right to their opinion so long as they don't insist on imposing it upon others). I consider myself "spiritual" in matters of theology,

If this song doesn't touch you, we have nothing in common:

*Warning........I found many of the matching questions either so bizarre or poorly worded that my inner-child took over and I provided what my targeted audience (all three of you) might consider a humorous response. I'm certain that others will conclude that I'm just another smart ass. In any event I'd be more than happy to clarify as desired.
What I’m doing with my life
I stay physically active* and enjoy both bicycling and resistance training. I'm a charter member of the "What's Wrong With Me?" club, a male bonding group that meets regularly for socialization, libation, and self-depricating humor. I strive to stay abreast of current events and enjoy social activities including sports, concerts, movies, dining out, etc.

*Update......I suffered a ruptured quadriceps in mid March and have had it repaired surgically. I'm still rehabbing my knee to build strength and flexibility, so I've not been as physically active as I was when I originally wrote this profile. My professional figure skating career is definitely over and I was forced to withdraw from this year's All Star slam dunk contest.

There is no such thing as a typical Friday night.........each is unique in its own way, but frequently boring none the less.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Occasionally I hide behind the ice machine at Circle K and as cars drive by, I run out and bite the tires.
