My field is dominated by people much younger, so I feel fortunate to be seen as a peer and a mentor. As a TV producer (mostly comedy) I also have a spontaneous, goofy side. Laughter is a key ingredient to a relationship, among other things!
I think all this factors into why I relate best to people in my preferred age range. I'm rather easy going and have more patience than most people. I think the reason for that is because I have learned to practice the art of "simply living in the moment." I believe when you live quietly in the moment, the future takes care of itself. Maybe that's why I'm told quite often (by both sexes) that I'm very different than most women. I feel fortunate that dating and sex have always come easily, however I'm looking for a deeper connection. Life is too short and I'm not going to waste it.
On the serious side, in 2005, I had my most life altering moment to date - I became a kidney donor for my best friend and then had the unique opportunity to share our story on Oprah.
I'm often asked why I'm still single and my response is: "Have you ever lived in Los Angeles?" I basically gave up my dating life in my late 20s-40s for my career. No regrets - can't really dwell on the past. And I "grew up" there. The lack of dating in LA was a big factor in moving back east and I'm lucky enough to be able to work here in the same industry. So I'm not the type to just settle. Who wants that?
