Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Live in CT, but often in Bethesda for work.
I think happiness is a decision we make...not a thing we can find.
I agree with the sentiment that life is not about waiting for the
sun to shine....it is about learning to dance in the rain. I am an
optimistic person who loves life and is looking for someone who has
the same outlook. I love skiing, scuba diving, windsurfing and
cycling. I grew up on the coast of Maine, and I love the ocean and
nature. I like to explore new places, try new things, or just take
pleasure in familiar rituals. I have climbed Kilimanjaro, done
Outward Bound, dived with feeding sharks, raced cars, walked on the
Great Wall and jumped out of planes. My To Do List includes bungee
jumping, Kite surfing, flying in a glider and helicopter, and
getting my pilot's license.
I value integrity and positive attitudes. I was raised to be a
gentleman. I will hold the door for you and pull out your chair. I
sometimes have an unconventional view of things, but I don't mind
being in the minority. Actually, I automatically reassess my views
if they are mainstream for fear I have unintentionally drunk the
cultural "cool-aid." I am not easily swayed by convention or the
opinions of others. I have a quirky...sometimes off the wall sense
of humor. I can be a total goof-ball. I often feel like I'm an
introvert, but everyone I know disagrees. I love children and have
two young boys of my own. They do not live with me most of the
time, but they are a big part of my life.
I am a healthy and active person. I also love to cook. My sister
lived with me while she was attending culinary school in Boston and
she got me hooked. I am no gourmet, but maybe we could share a
glass of wine and make a nice dinner together. I don't watch sports
on TV, unless the X-games or the Olympics are on. In fact, I have a
hard time watching anything with commercials. I prefer movies or
science and historical shows. Having grown up in Maine....I have
mad skills at pyrotechnics and navigation.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to grow up...not old...resisting cynicism..trying to be the
best dad possible.
Decided to learn piano and take my Spanish to another level this
year....working on it. And maybe get a pilot's license, if I can
squeeze it in.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Doing several things at once....making huge leaps of intuition that
are usually spot on...zoning out on the mundane....having the back
of those that matter to me..
The first things people usually notice about me

Beats me. Maybe you can tell me if we meet. I would guess the

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Love engrossing books...could be Dune or a trip into another
culture or time...but it needs to grab me and not let go. I have
very diverse tastes in music and food....if it's not wriggling I
will definitely try it....and might still even if it is.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In my experience, there is very little without which we can't make

The woman for whom I am searching
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How most people have no sense of historical perspective.
Culinary applications for power tools.
Where to travel next.
New recipes or concoctions.
The well being of my sons.
Brevity of existence.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out to nice dinner....or grilling on my patio with a bottle of
chilled rose and tiki torches.....or dinner in the city with
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I value my privacy....so you must ask me in person if you want
anything more than name, rank and serial number.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a positive, joyful, feminine, optimistic and above
all...passionate woman. I am looking for a woman who knows that
material things are just that...things. You are searching for a man
who is sometimes calm and mature, sometimes playful and silly, but
always affectionate. You laugh as easily at yourself as you do at
others. Smiling is your default mode. You are a giver. A wicked
sense of humor would be a huge bonus!!
You were honest about everything in your profile.. yes, everything!
