And now, on with the profile:
They say a cynic is nothing more than a disappointed romantic. That may be true. I'm a rogue male in search of my muse. A man who makes no apologies for being a man, seeking a real, smart, sensual, secure woman who knows who she is and what that entails. I'm also a very private man, but more on that later.
Before we get too far, know that I'm definitely not the muscle-headed, stubble-faced man-child wannabe actor tending bar and working for tips. I'm old school. The dark haired stranger whose strands of silver are finally making him look more grown up. The type that calls the next day if it was good and sends flowers if it was fantastic. Definitely more James Bond than Chuck Norris, I've been told I'm physically more a mix of a Euro-American looking type, which means I lean more to the "olive" than "pasty white" on the complexion scale.
I don't work in an office and since none of my clients are here in L.A., OKC is just about my only local social outlet. So here I am.
The way I see it, relationship math works out like this:
I make you feel good + You make me feel good = Wonderful.
Yeah, it really is that simple.
Although I don't care about age, I seem to relate best to women (and people in general) in their 30's and early 40's because that's when people seem to be really dynamic and interesting (or maybe because a lot of my clients are in that range?). Twenty-somethings are nice, too, but only if we can hold each other's interest (to be fair, I guess I could get accused of cradle-robbing, but in fact I've met some wonderful, interesting, fun women who were in their 20's -- what am I going to do, NOT meet up with them?). So if I've contacted you and you're wondering "what's this older guy doing contacting me," now you know.
I could just as easily be your friend as fall in love with you. Which means if you'd rather just be a pal or a playmate (of all kinds), by all means approach, even if it's just a chat here on OKC (assuming my chat button is on).
People have asked me, "Why the big deal about privacy?" The answer is simple: First, I like being private, especially with you. I don't need to broadcast my private life, which is why I hardly pay attention to my Facebook page. Second, in my line of work, discretion is important, since I do commentary for TV and a bunch of other media. Having my photo hanging out here is not the most professional thing to do....I have no problem sending photos if/when we connect, but I do that offline.
As for my profession, I solve problems for businesses when nobody else can, mainly because I have this knack for seeing things from all kinds of different perspectives. At first I thought it was a personality flaw, but then I turned it into a career. I really enjoy it.
Funniest reply I've ever gotten here is from one woman who cracked, "It's okay to have Daddy issues....as long as you find the right Daddy." And yeah, it really does happen in real life.
