This “quiz” reflects some of my interests: from probing life’s mysteries with another to seeking to deepen the laugh lines around my eyes and mouth; from reading children’s literature to watching romantic comedies; from playing classical pieces on the piano to listening to others play jazz; from cherishing the scientific method in its search for truth to pondering what philosophers have concluded about the nature of reality; from learning at least one new thing each day to the dream of making the world a better place.
My main interest, for the purposes of this website, is to meet a renaissance person with a broad range of interests from astronomy to art, from poetry to politics, from Bach to Broadway. Are you an optimist with a good sense of humor? If so, know that to share meals with me you’ll also like to cook! In return, I’ll do the dishes! I’m a good listener, like to support interests/hobbies, and to laugh at funny stories and humorous moments.
I’m seeking a soul mate who believes it's a magical world and is ready to go exploring!
