My self-summary
Comments from women I have dated:
"He's not a creep."
"He is more fun than staying at home alone with my cats. Unless I have a bottle of wine at home alone with my cats. Then it is a close call."
"He is rather easily amused, particularly by his own jokes."
"He weirdly is both very sweet (to me) and sarcastic as hell (to others)"
"Intermittently attentive and oblivious."
"He knows way more DC history trivia than is healthy."
"A damned good cook."
"My cats really liked him, especially Spike and Peeps."
"It is very nice that he took me to an art museum, but he knows absolutely nothing about art."
"A witty conversationalist with an endearing heart."

Self-summary (Oh, that was the question)
I am (or, at least think of myself as) confident but not cocky, highly educated but not pretentious, irreverent but not insulting, opinionated but open to new ideas, strong but attentive, sweet but not clingy, and highly analytical and inquisitive. And I have very high standards of ethics, integrity, and morality. I love finding humor in everday life all around us. I am looking for an intelligent, fun, somewhat unconventional woman who gets me for a long-term relationship. And she needs to be someone from whom I can learn, and someone with whom I can learn, as I find the best conversations are those in which I learn something, anything really. But I am not looking for frequent deep philosophical or political discussions. I crave witty banter.
What I’m doing with my life
I read voraciously. About four books per week, including history, silly fiction, and serious fiction. I am an antitrust economist and sometimes testify as an expert witness. I love my work, but I seldom work long hours. My schedule is flexible to do whatever interests me, hopefully soon including indulging a wonderful woman with whom I have begun a great long-term relationship. I have published a couple of dozen articles in economic and legal journals, but I much prefer writing humorous short stories. I also spend a fair amount of time at the gym and when the weather is decent, on the bicycle trails. My tennis game and golf game need work, but I enjoy both. I love to be out on the water, particularly the Chesapeake Bay. I also enjoy exploring the DC area, with a focus on its rich and idiosyncratic history, architecture, and natural beauty. And I do volunteer tutoring of high-school dropouts for their GED tests.
I have two very cool kids, Alex (22) and Sophie (19), who live in Colorado and Michigan. Sophie is my very best friend in the world and my Chief Dating Advisor, so be forewarned: she at some point will be judging you!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Those bar charts OKCupid makes out of our answers to their questions. It says that I am "cool," but just what does that mean for someone my age? I am "less conventionally moral;" well, being unconventional sounds good, but I think I am highly moral, so not sure what to think . . .
On a typical Friday night I am
relaxing at home after happy hour with friends, planning something fun for the weekend, preferably outdoors.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get dating advice from my 19-year old daughter, and it concerns me that she is WAY better at it than I am.
