I'm glad you found me. I'm an open book, and I'm worth the read. "Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." -- Anais Nin
So, if you're the kind of person that loves to honestly, and without-agenda, engage in interesting conversation to observe and analyze human behavior, or break into song at any moment, all while laughing your ass off, any or all of that - - then you're going to like me, lots.
I'm looking for passionate people for partners in life, to have fantastic and flirtatious fun with, people who are authentic, transparent, and who are extremely independent and responsible for how they think, feel and act, in the highest integrity as they have worked passionately to define. Anyone who is passionate (I love that word!) about anything usually connects with me. If you relate to my grandfather's favorite saying, "The more I know, the more I know that I don't *know* anything", you will rock my world and I will rock yours. I love life, and have an abundance of gratitude and appreciation for those who are active in pursuing it to its' beautiful edges. I examine my life - my thoughts, my feelings and my actions, each breathing moment.
I hang around (and want to meet people in) the cities of NYC, MSY, PDX, MSP, BNA, DFW-AUS-HOU, DC and my hometown of BOS. I'm open to other places too. I often travel to the Caribbean and to Europe, and want to travel more Asia and S.A.; if you're looking for a terrific travel partner, whether you want a lover or not, then at least say, "hi." I was born with a GPS in my head and I'm handy along those lines. When I got a B.A and Master's in Geography, it was only because it was low-hanging fruit.
I'm a logical, scientifically minded but sometimes-ridiculously-goofy, sometimes-extraordinarily-suave, always debonair, very independent-minded entrepreneurial philanthropist who travels the world - both literally and figuratively, because it's what I consider to be fun. Fun is my purpose in life. "Fun" for me includes having integrity at all levels, and acting on it, and pursuing passions, but it doesn't mean that I don't do things that most people find to be difficult: It's a matter of the mind. But I also have "fun" in the process - including doing/experiencing the things that most people feel pain over. My only requirement for me is that my fun align with my integrity as I define it. You'll have to ask me if you want to find out what things align with my integrity. Hopefully, you've figured out your own integrity too, and passionately follow it.
So, here's what some gal-friends who know me - grew up with me, wrote about me to put on a profile (Note: we were at a bar, after a class reunion, when they found out that I wasn't married - nice friends!): "He's loving, communicative, a twin, a father, strong & healthy, a dreamer, an eternal optimist, active thinker, is incapable of jealousy, always in love with life, joyful and happy, way independent, trusting, passionate, compassionate, a vanilla fan, daring, unconventional (very), a nonconformist, non-judgmental, amazed (and amazing), and wanting the most love possible for others - whatever the cost. He's a food critic and appreciates the "fine art of cooking", chooses raw foods over processed ones, but will eat anything. He's not into religion, but very interested in spiritual things. He laughs often, sometimes so hard that he hurts himself. He especially laughs at his own bad jokes. He's idealistic, because he thinks that we could all live in peace and love "if we tried (big discussion)", and the joy of life itself always gets him out of the sadness. He loves people who thrill at discussions of spiritual philosophy and science, and who enjoy the likes of Patanjali, Rumi, Buddha, Dyer, Eisenstein to Einstein, Hawking, Tesla, and those who came up with the "String" Theory. He's honest to the core, pierces through to others' honesty. He thinks there's nothing such as "brutal honesty", he likes looking at people's eyes, and adores people who dive into life regardless of what others think. He owns a tux, knows how to use it, but is at home whether on the top of a mountain or in the middle of the city, but he wears jeans as much he can. A fav quote is from Einstein, "Few are those who think with their own head and feel with their own heart." He innocently finish people's sentences, and loves to talk to people who do the same. He's an accomplished musician; loves any music, but especially music that reveals the soul. He'll go out of his way to watch a good ballet, and likes to dance any kind of ballroom."
Another friend just called me a, "Gladwell Outlier", and told me that I really should read the book. But, I write the book, constantly.
[My friends got me right] On of my friends just called me an "outlier". I haven't read the book, but she told me why. Again, my friends "get" me.
I've recently realized that there is only one god: Murphy, the Goddess of Irony. You remember Murphy of "Murphy's Law"? Yes, she's the Goddess of Irony, and she's evil (I kinda' like evil.) She rules the planet. She knows my every move, and counters it with her magic. That's my theory. Oh, and she knows that I'm hopelessly romantic, in the "really romantic" way.
