You'll find that I'm highly intelligent. I'm a member of Mensa with an IQ of 152. I'm also very creative in my own way and, I'm told, a natural leader.
One of the things that I love most is dancing. I frequently swing dance, country dance, ballroom and at one time was fairly adept at Argentine Tango.
I've written a number of technical articles over the years and I love to make up little stories, most of the children's variety, although I don't generally write them down. To me they're like Buddhist sand paintings - they have a brief life where they are beautiful in their own way and then they're gone.
Career-wise I'm a Software Architect. I've read that this is the most desirable position to be in for the future and that seems to pan out both in terms of my income and how frequently head hunters contact me to offer new positions to me.
My house is rather large and interesting and I like to collect interesting objects that have a story behind them. You'll find them decorating most rooms of my house. At one time I was really into antiques and I refinished a variety of them. Don't have many of them around anymore, though, since I gave them to friends and family members that seemed to love them.
Personality-wise I'm highly extroverted. Once, when given a test for a job, I was told that my level of extroversion broke the test. By extroverted I'm talking about the tendency to be more concerned about others than myself - not the personality type that is loud and boring. As a result I'm a Liberal - although I respect other peoples' viewpoints and don't preach to them.
I'm also an incurable romantic. Before I was divorced I was known at the grocery store that I frequented as the "guy who always buys flowers." I love hugging, snuggling and public displays of affection. When I'm with someone she is the most important part of my life to me. I've also never cheated on anyone in my life and never will.
Spiritually I'm a Catholic, grown and raised. But I also have an interest in other religions and have made quite a study of them. Next to Catholicism Buddhism has a special attraction to me. I sometimes refer to myself as a Catholic with Buddhist leanings.
I don't believe in pressuring anyone into doing anything that they don't want to do. When a couple is in that position it just means that they aren't compatible. People need freedom to grow and love comes from the freedom to grow with each other.
I hope that you find my profile appealing and will consider becoming friends, at least. Friendship is the best way to start a potential relationship and to me developing a relationship, whether friendship or love, is much more important than having sex for the wrong reasons.
