I'll say right up front, I'm looking for ONE in a million, a rare and very particular sort of woman. A partner, in the truest sense -- in life, in business, in travel, in love, in leisure and recreation, in sex, in everything!
I'm Nicholas. As in Saint Nicholas. As in Santa Claus. If you don't believe, perhaps just play along... but, of course, far, far better to believe. I'm as "real" as it gets.
If one word describes me it is 'cerebral.' Constantly questioning, exploring, figuring out, making sense of this or that. From micro to macro, tiny to tremendous.
My background includes lots of world travel, US Peace Corps (Philippines '79-'83), teaching economics and English overseas (Philippines, Taiwan), extensive economics study (master's degree+, Ohio State University Ph.D. program), Third World development, philosophy, sociology, the arts, chess, computers, thousands of programs across the spectrum, warm encounters with hundreds of women, and, of course, the stock market.
My life consists of examining and interpreting the economy in a broad sense, and analyzing/trading securities (primarily stocks and options). Buy low, sell higher, short-term, based on complex mathematical systems (1 + 1... plus 1 more) I developed. I work from my quiet study, work only for myself with my personal account, and like calling all the shots.
Experience and knowledge are cumulative. While much is lost with time, more is accreted. As a result, I tend to think and operate at the 'graduate level' of life. I don't suffer fools kindly, and have limited compassion for much of humanity. The old tale of the three blind men and the elephant is how I view most people -- pfffff, no, not just a spear, not just a wall, not just a tree trunk. You, Mrs. Claus, perceive the bigger story as well.
Bucket List item: A single trade, timeframe 8 days or less, resulting in gain of more than $1 million.
My place is a cozy cocoon of multiple computers, many monitors, white boards, shelves, desks, books, graphs, charts, stuff... all continually suffused with Internet-streaming Classical music from Switzerland, J.S.Bach (God) considered way best, but also enjoy Handel, Beethoven, Mozart (Wolfie), Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky (Pete), Scarlatti, Chopin (Fred), Dvorák, Rachmaninoff, Satie, and so many more. Love the sound of a rich, full concert grand.
I want to reiterate here the importance I place on the study of ECONOMICS, all aspects across society, and back in time, all definitions and concepts, all tools used in such study. Economics is what I live and breathe, and reflects who I am more than anything else. (Mrs. Claus is, of course, highly synchronous with this.)
I'm intelligent, questioning, interested.
My income source (i.e., the market) is abundant, and portable. I can live anywhere in this wide world that I choose. My base income is from a semi-retirement annuity. All additional income is acquired through active on-line trading, with everything that entails. No thrill on earth I've so far experienced beats my position greatly spiking in value exactly as I was anticipating. Definitely a rush.
I was married to a medical doctor (psychiatrist with added fellowship specialization) for 20 years, and helped establish her successful practices in the various places we've lived (Philippines, Taiwan, Ohio, Indiana, Utah). We have one daughter, a truly exemplary individual, highly educated in the best schools, and is now doing graduate studies at Stanford. Our family has always had golden retrievers as pets, plus all sorts of other animals. In Indiana we had a huge home with plenty of wooded land on a large private lake. Pretty close to ideal. Except for one thing....
....My wife and I were, quite frankly, NEVER on the same page throughout our marriage, with little doubt a bad match. When our daughter grew old enough, my wife decided it was time to split. We divorced in 2001.
MY GOAL AND VISION:
So..., with the above paragraphs in mind, here's my goal and vision of the true Mrs. Claus: we really understand each other, we have great chemistry, friendship, short-term and long-term partnership, companionship, fellowship, connection, open and honest communication, commitment, loyalty, soul buddies, synergy, journey travel mates, and most assuredly Santa's better half. Mrs. Claus is quite the amazing woman... for ME, to say the least. No doubt one in a million. The love of my life. For the rest of my days.
Mrs. Claus ideally has these characteristics:
1 --- Top-tier mind. Similar to my own. You are smarter than just about anyone you know. IQ at least 150 or equivalent (if no MENSA card), and firing on all cylinders, particularly with respect to logic and mathematics. Disciplined. Rigorous. Focused. Yet flexible and adaptable in the use of your mental powers. Your intelligence is of the utmost importance to me. Without it there's no point continuing to read this profile. I'm totally serious. Just stop now.
2 --- Must appreciate deeply the nature of securities trading and economics fundamentals. Supply, demand, scarcity, externalities, business cycles, trends, etc. Exceptional listening skills. Hear what I say. Ask when you don't understand. Learn, learn, learn. Be my crucial soundboard. You will have an integral role in my (our) trading, both in developing strategies, and in executing the system. We'll be partners par excellence.
3 --- Prefer you have working knowledge in math software SAS, Mathematica, Stata, R, Excel, and in a programming language, F#, Haskel, Python. Very familiar with and comfortable using (Windows) computers: operating system, software, and hardware. No hesitations. Familiarity, of course, with the underlying core subjects, like statistics, calculus, geometry, algebra, etc.
4 --- Education at least Master's, preferably Ph.D., in mathematics, engineering, physics, the sciences (might consider a very bright MD again). In addition to the education, it means you've held positions requiring such, and have grown considerably through your various work.
5 --- Exceptional reading skills. Voracious reader, anything and everything. Have overcome the limitations of subvocalization. Able to hold intelligent conversations across the board: philosophy, religion, politics, world events, science, current this and that.
6 --- More Spiritual than Religious. Big Mind, Buddha nature, Outside-the-Box thinking. Eclectic. Understands the cosmos and higher powers, and how to tap into those. Does not refer to God as "He," or "my Heavenly Father" -- in other words, you've graduated from the simplistic, childish notions you were taught by the Church. Do not think that "God" has your life plan all laid out. Understands that THIS LIFE is YOUR MOVIE -- YOU are the producer, director, lead actor. YOU must make the choices -- based on all the evidence you have been able to find.
7 --- Vast life experiences, and basically still undamaged by it all -- alone a very difficult feat. Life tends to chew most up. Able to discuss with partner almost any aspect of life, at length, analyzing, processing, arriving at educated tentative conclusions.
8 --- Height 5'5 to 5'8. It simply seems to work so much better for both of us. Walking, kissing, sex, etc. I prefer short hair on women -- view long hair as a social imposition carrying significant functional costs.
9 --- Weight less than 170. Discipline. Respect for body and health, physical ability to do lots of things. Able to enjoy the next few decades together.
10 --- You must have positive net worth, clearly demonstrable. No pressing money issues. Last thing in the world I want to have to worry about.
11 --- Now comes the hardest one... Mrs. Claus must be able to tolerate and complement a rather ruthless, thoroughly elitist controlling despot of a certain hinterland kingdom -- public face cheery and jolly -- ho, ho, ho -- but beneath the veneer a rather cold, calculating czar (silent c, by the way).
And guess what?? This is merely the START. Ultimately it's crucial that we be on the "same page" about pretty much everything. I'm looking for optimal dovetailing. It's that important to me. I refuse to settle for less. We are travel partners in this LIFE journey -- the trip will require extreme coordination, cooperation, intimate understanding and agreement.
Addendum Regarding My Criteria List:
Okay, I've received seven zillion complaints about my list above. Gee wizz, ladies, lighten up some. Let's be clear, it's just a LIST. Like, brainstorming, ya know?. Come on... I recognize that it's impossible that ALL mentioned criteria will be found in any "REAL" woman. Mrs. Claus IS definitely one single real-life person. Not a simple sum of specifications. YOUR particular totality is what really matters. Right? Of course....
In defense of my criteria, though, all I'm asking the Universe for is ONE very, very special woman. Just one.
In this profile I might come off as "Santa Superman." Well, I definitely have many potential negatives -- in addition to my PERSONALITY. Here are just a few top ones that could turn you off big time:
a. I have SLEEP APNEA. While sleeping I'm attached to a mask and breathing tube -- one reason I don't let elves stay overnight.
b. After studying a lot of evidence, I am somewhat RACIST -- Asians are the smartest on the planet, Blacks the least (on average, by our Western standards). I view this as fact, not opinion. Most will, of course, hold it against me.
c. My income above in right sidebar is an outrageously massive bald-faced exaggeration. At least for the time being. Don't you be anticipating NO SUGAR DADDY in me, lady. In fact, YOU better have some money for both of us, just in case my stock trading doesn't pan out as planned.
If the description of who I am in this ENTIRE nearly-endless profile genuinely resonates with you -- in your heart, mind, soul, gut -- and the mentioned criteria more or less matches who you are, we should definitely get in touch. Let's explore each other a lot further and perhaps take this to the next level.
Sincere and warmest regards.
