Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm almost as cool and good looking as you are, but funnier. Way freakin' funnier! [Challenge extended]

If we couldn't be friends, best friends, then we probably wouldn't work that well dating or as a couple. I say this from experience, not as some sort of challenge or personal boundary. Friendship is just very important in my life.

I'm a funny guy, so I'm told - the smart-ass in the class that even had the teachers laughing. I can be dry and sarcastic, but have mellowed with age. I love "funny," but dislike "mean." And if you can't laugh at yourself, why laugh at all. That being said, if you laugh at me, I'm gonna set all your pets free!

I am separated (over 2 years), getting divorced, and am willing to admit I wish this was otherwise. But some things are not meant to be, so I'm moving on with my life. Among many positives from this 20-year relationship is that I have two great kids, 12 and 14 (one of each flavor), and they are my world! As any typical parent, I could go on forever about my kids, so just trust me - they're terrific! And yes, family is extremely important to me - at least the ones I like.

I grew up in S. Florida (Lauderdale), so like many Florida folks, I dig all things water related. I was SCUBA certified at 14 and a certified Aquanaut by 17. I enjoy hiking and the outdoors, but I'll admit I'm not as gung ho in the heat of the Florida summer as I used to be. Is it just me or are the summers getting hotter here?? I've also spent a good amount of time enjoying, living on, and working on boats.

I spent seven years in the Marine Corps - loved every second of it. I was able to meet some fantastic people, see a bit of the world, learn a great deal about myself and what I'm made of, and come to know sacrifice, personal responsibility, discipline, and leadership first-hand. I served in a special operations unit and was a jumper (Airborne), among other specialties. I'm very proud of my country and those who have served it.

I'm an avid reader - a knowledge junkie of sorts. I love to learn, and my interests are diverse. Education and learning are an important cornerstone in my life. I've taught, not my profession, at the undergraduate, graduate (MBA) and law school levels, and I would like to teach again someday. I'm an entrepreneur and business person by choice, but an intellectual property attorney by education.

I'm socially liberal, somewhat fiscally conservative, and am passionate about social issues and social justice.

Open honest communication is a must. I'm not the jealous type, so I don't need to know what you know (if you know what I mean). But I do need somebody willing to confront issues when they arise, and somebody who will open up when needed. I'm not through growing as a human being, and I sure hope you aren't either. Good communication is a key to that growth.

I speak my mind. But I'm very conscientious of this fact, so I work hard at being sensitive to my audience. I will argue, but not to prove I'm right or you're wrong, but rather to learn the reasoning behind the issue. I want to learn from your strengths. I don't mind being wrong - it happens in life more than any of us want. I learn more from being wrong than from being right, so please don't let this send up any red flags. It's all about the growth that blossoms out of the experience.

I'm looking for a strong woman, self-confident, and smart, but somebody who doesn't take themselves too seriously. Honesty and integrity are extremely important. None of us are anywhere near perfect, so I don't mind mistakes. What I can't tolerate is the unwillingness to deal with mistakes honestly and openly after the fact. I want a partner, an equal, and somebody who wants to be a partner, an equal. But let's start at being friends, making each other laugh, and see where it goes from there. Make sense? Then let's get to know each other.

BTW, that's not a wedding ring in my photos. Wrong hand. Those two pics were taken in a mirror.

I read EVRYTHING! My favorite movie is All the President's Men. I dig music of all types, but love Be-Bop Jazz, old Punk, Classic Rock, House, and great percussion work. Live performance - music or theater - is a sort of life-blood for me. Thai is my favorite cuisine.
