Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Nice guy & gentlemen. I am a polite, positive, glass half-full,
professional who believes in holding doors and pulling out chairs
for women. I have been described as a "giver". I am seeking a BFF
to have a blast with.
I am a St. Louis Native (parkway north) and Missouri S&T
(Rolla) grad. I was raised in the county but moved to the city
years ago. Best decision of my life -- absolutely love city living.
I rehabbed a 1905 Manse by myself over a 5 year period. Sold that
and moved into a 21st floor apartment across from Forest
I have a wide circle of close friends most of them for decades.
Friendships are very important to me. I am a foodie and love to try
new restaurants as well as cook at home.
I manage a specialty engineering company and I travel frequently
throughout the US. There are many opportunities to come along for a
long weekend or vacation. I have been around the world.
I enjoy golf a few times per year and most anything outdoors. I
love hiking through forests and parks. I would love to do more
canoeing and camping. Most of my free time is spent with my
daughter at the Zoo and Science Center (her favorite).
I am a huge documentary fan and the king of useless trivia.
Anything PBS but especially American Experience and the History
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have found a happy balance between personal and career. I enjoy
quality time with my 9 year old daughter. Rolling out a new product
in next year or so. I just ditched my house for a great zero
maintenance apartment overlooking Forest Park. Switching to a condo
in the next year or so. I want to enjoy my life without worrying
about lawns, winterizing, and what needs to be repaired or
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Negotiating - I love working with and between parties to reach
consensus and agreements. Win-win always.
Sales - I am very good at selling just about anything. Most of my
life has been selling very expensive and complicated machinery. I
am also a Realtor for Sothebys in my spare time.
Some Assembly Required - I can build, assemble or repair anything
with just a picture and sometimes just a description. Been able to
do it since I was 3.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm always smiling and having a good time. Definitely a
Several people have mistaken me for a younger Harrison Ford which I
find funny. I am told that I also have a deep sultry voice. I need
to learn some Barry White tunes. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read the NY Times daily -- Love the OP/ED pages.
I like a wide range of music, including opera, musicals, oldies,
and anything with a decent beat.
I am the guy at the stoplight singing along with the radio like
nobody can see (or hear) him. Also do some choreographed moves for
really good tunes LOL.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- My daughter.
- My friends.
- (You know) :)
- Coffee in the morning.
- The NY Times.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Online Dating and its pros and cons: Do both men and women have
unrealistic expectations? Are women so afraid of creeps that they
don't give it an honest chance? Whatever happened to the art of
flirting? Why is there such a stigma with online dating? Are people
who find it difficult to trust drawn to a site where they can
maintain an arms length distance indefinitely? Why is it so much
easier to start up a friendship with younger women? Why do men
think its OK to be inappropriate online? Does the endless stream of
options make it impossible to give anyone a fair chance? Is there
something about meeting in person that online dating will never
replace? Is there too much emphasis on sex or not enough? Whatever
happened to the 3-date rule? Do we get so set in our ways that its
impossible to open our lives to someone new and different? Are we
simply talking past each other? Do I think too much about it??? LOL
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cruising online dating sites..LOL (not really)
Relaxing, out with friends or my daughter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love Classical and Opera. Started by watching Bugs Bunny opera
satires when I was a kid. Opera Theatre at Webster is the
undiscovered treasure of St. Louis.
I think spectator sports including Cards, Rams, Blues, et al are
just a ripoff and mostly boring to watch. Would rather play golf or
something else. Please fans don't burn down my house. LOL
