My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm laid back, creative and tolerant. I also consciously try to be compassionate and non-judgmental towards others bc this is a tough ol' world sometimes, and who couldn't use a little tenderness on occasion?

I've reached a point in life where I know what's really important to me - the quality of my relationships with family, friends, and colleagues. I'm comfortable with who I am, independent and self-supporting, and would welcome a passionate relationship with the right man.

Interestingly, my "personality" tab suggests that I'm slightly more old-fashioned than the average okcupid user. Hell, I don't think I'm old-fashioned. Although I do still embarrass my 21 year son sometimes, so maybe I am ;-).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just finished law school and took the bar "exam" this July - in quotes because "exam" doesn't quite sum up that particular . . . experience. This is my "third career" out of the three we're all supposed to have over the course of our lives. I love the intellectual challenge of being a lawyer, and consider myself highly skilled and ethical. I'm grateful to have found a profession that will challenge and engage me for the rest of my working life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Kissing. Throwing back my head to laugh. And being goofy ;-).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea . . . my smile? my eyes? how my hair looks today? That's what I notice about me anyway. I should probably ask my friends about this one of these years.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: good non-fiction/investigative journalism, modern day noir mysteries (some great and gritty Irish and Brit series out there right now), well researched and well written historical novels. A good mystery set in another time and place is the best of both worlds. I read Harper's and the Atlantic for current events, despite the fact that the Atlantic sometimes irritates the hell out of me when they get too pompous. The articles are still relatively well researched and explored. I love good graphic novel series. Good noir graphic novel series - Scalped, The Boys, 100 Bullets - top my list, what a surprise ;-).

Movies: I tend to watch good series tv these days more often than I go to the movies. Old favorites are The Wire, Mad Men, Deadwood, Southland, Carnivale. Current faves: True Detective, Orchid Black, Sons of Anarchy, Homeland, American Horror Story, Ray Donovan, and Boardwalk Empire. Love Steve Buscemi - great actor. Though he is kinda funny lookin.

Love all types of food; I'm not a fussy eater as long as it tastes good. Draw the line at insects and certain internal organs though.

I have eclectic musical tastes that range through time and genre. I don't like today's pop music though. All sounds the same to me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My son
The rest of my wonderful family
My friends
Coffee, the elixir of life
My restless, curious brain
A sense of serenity
Whoops, that's seven. Oh well. Can't do without my mildly rebellious streak either ;-).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
At the risk of sounding like a cliche, I think a lot about the unique journey we're all on. That's 6 billion+ unique journeys on this planet - not counting non-human species. Pretty amazing when you think about it. Sure keeps me humble anyway ;-).

I think about how important it is to maintain a sense of balance. To embrace joy and not turn away from pain, because really, you can't have one without the other. And by mid-life, we've all weathered our share of the latter.

I think about how blessed I am to have a small but wonderful family, and loyal, stand-up friends in my life. I'm grateful for the measure of peace I have with myself now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing at home with a good book or dvd, or out to dinner and/or music with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Wouldn't be private anymore then, would it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are self-aware, honest, intelligent, and comfortable in your own skin, and are secure and confident enough to appreciate the same in a woman. I don't care whether you have a college degree or not, as long as you don't care that I'm a lawyer ;-).

You understand that real intimacy is about mutual chemistry, companionship, openness, and respect - ie, a deep friendship. And you know that sex is SO much better when coupled with deep friendship.
