My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Please be honest and upfront about what you really want. I am looking for a guy to go on dates, have fun, and see what happens. I think people can jump to romance too quickly. I'd like to take things slowly, get to know you, and see what develops. I'm most interested in your humor, wit, character, and spirit. I really don't care about your condo in Logan, your BMW, or how many times you went to P-town last year. Those things are nice, but they aren't who you are. They are just what you have. Hopefully you will be interested in those same qualities in me.

I believe that life is far too short and precious to squander on less than true happiness, and what I care about most above all else is simply to have people in my life who I can love and who can love me back, just as we are. If that includes a special man who will walk by my side, I'll be thrilled. If it doesn't, I will be content to enjoy the love of good friends. I am fiercely loyal to those who are important to me.

Fitness, physical activity, and healthy eating are very important to me, for both the physical and mental/emotional benefits. I work out several times a week, and do yoga usually twice a week. I also practice meditation and mindfulness. All in an effort to experience life as it is happening right now.

I very much enjoy a great meal with or without a nice glass of wine. But it doesn't have to be super fancy to be good. If it's a great example of a burger, or a delicious, ripe peach, that works for me. I like to cook at home as well, and like to play around trying new recipes. I'm not always successful, but it's fun. I really enjoy putting together a dinner for friends, or one special person.

Like most, I enjoy theater, and movies. I lived in New York in a past life, and miss being able to go see a new Broadway play whenever I want. But, I try to get up there for weekends now and then to see what's good.

I lived oversees when I was younger, and I've had the travel bug ever since. I've been to many places around the world, but have many more on my list. And, there's plenty of fun places to explore in the U.S. as well. The trick is finding the time.

Hiking and camping, or other outdoorsy-naturey activities are high on my list, too. Being away from it all is good for the soul. Though I must confess that sometimes I just want to stay home and veg out with a book or the History Channel (ok, and maybe HGTV too).

I like to play golf, but do so poorly and not nearly as often as I'd like. Big tennis fan, but play even worse than I golf.

I play the piano, but strictly as a hobby, and almost always only for myself. I suppose I have a degree of insecurity about my playing. But, even though I'm not terribly accomplished, it provides me a great deal of comfort. If I play in front you, it means that I've let my guard down to a certain degree.


I have suffered several deep losses in my life in the past few years. It's been difficult for me to wrap my head around, but, from these experiences has sprung the above-described understanding of what really matters to me in life. I try to look for the joy in each day, even when things aren't going so well. I'm not a saint or a zen master by any stretch, but I view it all as a process and a journey. It's not always the destination, but the mode of transportation, that matters.

Ultimately, I'm looking to find a partner to share life's triumphs and tragedies, and even just the day-to-day mundane. Someone to tell how my day was. Someone to plan trips with. Someone to watch bad movies with. Someone to pick out the perfect tie and shirt with. Someone to smile at from the other side of the room at a party. Someone to grow old with.

In case it wasn't obvious from the above text, I'm an INFP. I'm sensitive and caring, which can leave me prone to being hurt, but which also lets me feel deeply and to want to share those feelings. The best relationships include open, honest, and frank communication on both sides.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Still working on figuring life out. I feel like it's a constant process, and there's always something new to learn. For work, I'm a government trial attorney.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making chocolate. Empathy. Seeing the other side of an argument. Listening. Helping. Learning languages. Driving stick shift. Reading maps. Choosing restaurants. Painting (rooms, not art). Persevering.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My stature. I'm a little guy (5'5", 125 lbs.). I totally get that many men are looking for a big strapping guy that can throw them over his shoulder. If you are, I'm not for you. I'm fine with that. Awesome if you are, too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
