My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"My friends consider me" is a common literary device in dating profiles to praise yourself, because it's embarrassing otherwise, but I think I know this about myself - I strive to be insightful, caring, iconoclastic, intelligent, feminine, and worthy of a truly reciprocal love. I love a good conversation and the sincere people who are not afraid of a debate.

I have two advanced degrees, (in science and literature), but that doesn't mean that I feel knowledgeable enough. It doesn't make me a geek, although I might be considered one, given my predilection for mixing differing schools of thought and liking obscure books, music, and films. I also have two grown children and a new granddaughter.

I have worked in the aerospace industry for a number of years, on some of the most exciting ventures. However, I am not an engineer, although I admire those who are good at that profession.

I was born in the former USSR, came to the US young enough to integrate both cultures. I will never be 100 per cent this or that. I'll probably never fit in anywhere. A sense of belonging is important, but voluntary exile is a vantage point. We are all adapting to the new world... methinks...

I am pro-Israel while being liberal (in my own understanding of liberalism). I have never been able to, and never will toe any party line.

For some men, it's important to be doing fishing, bicycling, camping, or sky-diving - together. I don't do any of the above. Well, I wouldn't mind trying fishing (I think). It would be nice if you enjoy reading together (not all the time, on occasions), going to the movies or concerts, and going for a walk every day. If you are someone who has plenty of things to do by yourself, while capable of being really together and present with someone else, then write me. If you have a creative streak, or possess the restlessness and anxiety characteristic of people who are creative by nature, you'll "get" me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the past 5 years, I had moved about 5 times (some of them job-related). I am thinking how I can settle somewhere "perfect." Geography is important. I like SoCal, although a move to Seattle may be in the picture, too.
I walk 4-5 miles every day - some of them in Seal Beach, other- in Belmont Shore.
I try to do something new every day, and occasionally even succeed:)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...languages. That I know. Many don't wish to brag here, but I don't think this question is designed to bring out our inner swagger. I speak three foreign languages, and I would really like to learn Spanish well - if only I had the perseverance to study the verbs:)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This question, while unanswerable at the moment, gives me an idea: I'll ask people about that:)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Alice Munro. Ernest Hemingway. F. Scott Fitzgerald. [Amos Oz], "Fima," "A Perfect Peace."
[Tolstoy], "War and Peace."
The poetry of [Yehuda Amichai] and Yevgeny Yevtushenko.
I am very selective at what movies I watch. Woody Allen is my favorite, when it comes to American movies. I love foreign movies. [Eric Rohmer]'s [A Summer's Tale] is one of my favorites.

Music: [eclectic], [Latin], Russian, [Israeli]...[Leonard Cohen], Joni Mitchell, The Beatles, classical, [folk], singer-songwriter genre.

Food: - favorites: caviar (salmon only), lox, avocado, artichokes, eggplant, cheese; food in general - pretty much any cuisine, although I do like Mexican and Mediterranean more, at this point.
P.S. I cook. I prefer eating at home.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
They are usually not things. Conversations with my children, writing, reading, making jewelry, walking, going to the sea shore. If things - then it's [coffee], [red wine], [music], [beads], [books], [paintings], flowers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
.... how not to overthink what I already know and feel...
....how to be more disciplined and write every day...
....how the meaning of one's life changes with its stages, yet remains the same... maybe we could discuss this when we get together?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home, with friends, or with friends at home. Friday or Saturday nights do not carry any "epic" meaning for me:)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I talk to my cat. I sometimes deceive him when I say to him, "I'll be right back," and then come home in the evening only. I feel bad about that:)...

Those who don't understand this question, crack me up: it's not about revealing your deep dark secrets:) it's about revealing SOMETHING about yourself.
You should message me if
