My self-summary
As a child I grew up surrounded by both music, an appreciation for all the arts, and the pursuit of knowledge. Some of my heroes/role models were Leonardo Da Vinci, Albert Einstein, Sherlock Holmes/Dr. Watson (based on their author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) Sigmund Freud, C.G. Jung, Buster Keaton, Alfred Hitchcock, Vincent Van Gogh, among many others. I believe that emotionally I'm not of this time, I feel like I'm a true romantic, a throwback to earlier times, yet a rationalist, a renaissance man. Art, science, culture, philosophy.... ideas beyond words, emotions beyond my ability to express here...

Full disclosure: I'm actually 10 years older. I lowered my "official" age to reflect my youthful appearance and personality. I don't feel it, and most people never can guess my chronological age. I just wanted to be included in searches with younger women than myself, But I also include women just slightly younger in my desired age range..

I'm looking for a woman in the age range I've specified (26 to 54), who is on my wavelength, in friendship, intellectual level, tastes in art, music, outdoor activities, foods, etc. You don't have to share every interest of mine, I am open to explore yours. Also in relationship type and compatible with each other sexually (let's be honest here). We will just know it and see each other for who we really are, the good and bad. I'm not perfect, and neither are you. We just have to get past the surface, and discover each other's core as human beings, male and female. It may sound cliched, and simplistic, but for now that's the best way that I can express the inexpressible.

I'm really shy at times, but I have evolved to open myself up to new people and experiences. I am essentially a bundle of many diverse interests and personality characteristics. Some of which might seem contradictory to each other. I accept the fact that I'm complicated, which I don't see as a negative, I see it as a bunch of assets.

The six things I could never do without
Internet Access
Movies & Theater
Good Relationships and Sex (Not really a "thing" is it?)
Good food and Drink
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the Universe... and Everything. Oh, and where YOU are.
On a typical Friday night I am
at home catching up on correspondence & laundry. All while watching a blu-ray, or HBO or TCM, or just listening to music.
Or I'm working out at the gym.

But that's when I'm not together with friends or with YOU.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been told more than once, that at times I have an evil laugh...

That I'm addicted to taking the tests on this site & comparing myself to the all the women who take them.

Also, I keep answering more questions as I find them on other profiles.

And now it's no longer private.
You should message me if
You REALLY want to get to know the real me "warts and all". And you win bonus points with me, if you know the origin of the quotation.

You're willing to overlook all the TMI and just treat me like another ordinary (albeit very intelligent & complex) guy...
