Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I try to balance my interests and activities including things like
music, reading and writing in quiet times, walking and working out
to stay healthy, and mixing in activities like museums, concerts,
zoos and picnics as well. If you have a good sense of humor, are
intelligent and keep a positive attitude, I'm interested in getting
to know you better. I prize intellectual stimulation and
conversation, but being able to be creative and funny will steal my
heart just as well. I am a romantic man looking for a woman who
appreciates that and who wants to reciprocate in kind. Laughter is
an important part of my life. I would like to meet someone who
possesses the courage to follow their heart rather than making
excuses not to. I pledge the same in return.
I love to try new things such as foods and travel destinations. I
love the energy of live music and dancing while prizing quiet time
with someone special. I enjoy sports and stay active to keep in
shape. My opinions are right for me, but I don't assume they are
right for others as I understand the difference between opinions
and facts. I enjoy British comedy because I happen to love
The person I am looking for tries to keep an even keel through
life's ebbs and flows because, like Mufasa, you understand the
circle of life. You also value having someone special in your life
who will support you through the tough times and you offer the same
support in kind, all while striving to find the best path possible
to achieve individual and mutual goals and taking every opportunity
to laugh and enjoy the moment we are in. You are a person who is
ready for a long-term relationship, you crave intellectual
stimulation and you will hold up your end of a relationship that
strives for maximum communication.
For those who enjoy the Myers-Briggs personality tests, I have come
out as an INFJ each time I have taken the test. The following seems
a fair assessment of me...INFJs are gentle, caring, complex and
highly intuitive individuals. Artistic and creative, they live in a
world of hidden meanings and possibilities. Only one percent of the
population has an INFJ Personality Type, making it the most rare of
all the types. INFJs have uncanny insight into people and
situations. They get "feelings" about things and intuitively
understand them. If you are not familiar with the INFJ personality
type, please take a few moments to read up on it so you have a
reasonable outline of who I am. It will help greatly.
Thank you stopping by and I wish you luck finding the person who
you are looking for, but remember that happiness starts from
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm looking for that perfect harmony while trying to be the best
person I can be. Some days are better than others at that and it is
my hope that every failure allows me to grow and come out stronger
on the other side of it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening and helping. I think it's important to try and help
others as our culture is turning the opposite way from that. I also
respect any point of view that can be reasonably presented and
defended. I can put quill to parchment with reasonable results at
I'm very intuitive with people I know and care about. Sometimes the
things I know surprise me and will surprise you. Please be open to,
if not comfortable with, this likelihood.
Patience. I refuse to settle for less than a great relationship. I
deserve that and so do you. It's worth the wait.

I'm a good listener and quite often my socks match. You are a good
person in my eyes until you prove otherwise. Animals tend to
gravitate to me which I love. I am typically quiet when first
meeting someone as taking in information about someone else helps
me to build a bond, but I will catch up in short order.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Dean Koontz is my auto-purchase author. Tolkien and classic
literature have been important to me. Brian Greene and Michio Kaku
for the way they allow me to understand string theory. On my shelf
now to read: Life of Pi (Martel) and The Heart of the Buddha's
Teachings (Thich Nhat Hanh).
Dead Poets Society is my favorite movie. The Princess Bride, A
Knight's Tale and Contact are others on my favorites' list. Crash
really had me thinking and Enemy of the State has Gene Hackman, my
favorite actor. Lord of the Rings was far better than I dared
dream...thank you Peter Jackson.
American Horror Story was awesome Season 1 but I have not had the
opportunity to catch this season at all. Huff was a great series on
Showtime a few years back. Mystery Science Theater 3000 is so me.
Les Miserables is my musical of choice unless we are counting Rocky
Horror Picture Show.
U2 is my band and I gravitate towards 80s alternative and punk, but
I can listen to most anything. I also love The Prototypes, a band
from Paris. A special mention for Muse and Metric as well. Let me
know if there is someone more romantic to listen to than Sade
because I am unaware of who that is. I am very late to the party on
Toadies but I'm there now. Steely Dan is amazing.
Sushi, Indian, Mexican and Italian are favorites along with
virtually any type of fish. I hate peanut butter and I've never had
coffee. As a guy, it is mandated that I like wings and pizza and I
am compliant on this issue. I'm looking forward to increasing my
salad intake. If you haven't had a real paella in your life, you
owe yourself the pleasure. Lemon tea with honey is my cold-weather
drink of choice when settling down at night. I will never forget
the pommes frites roadside stand in Philippeville, Belgium that I
frequented and enjoyed with Samurai sauce. The Belgians know how to

“If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair.
We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business, because
we’d be cynical. Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off
cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.” - Ray
It's a marvelous night for a moondance.
“I won't tell you that the world matters nothing, or the world's
voice, or the voice of society. They matter a good deal. They
matter far too much. But there are moments when one has to choose
between living one's own life, fully, entirely, completely—or
dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the
world in its hypocrisy demands. You have that moment now. Choose!”
― Oscar Wilde

Unless it's mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it's a waste of
time. There are many things in the world where ordinary is good
enough. Love should not be one of them.
There are no quick fixes in life. Love is worth waiting for and no
obstacle should prevent it from happening if it is meant to
It's going through the trials and tribulations of life that create
the contrast to enable us to taste the sweetest moments.

I used to work for a company that made fire hydrants. You couldn't
park anywhere near the place.
My heart is fragile but I will continue to offer it as seems
appropriate. Love is worth risking everything.
I really like Downton Abbey.
I have pet several snow leopards more than a few times.
To me, cook books should be in the fiction section of the book

I have a UFO story I might be willing to share.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Don't be with me because the alternative of being alone is
worrisome. None of us want that. Be with me because what I have to
offer warms your soul and has you eagerly looking forward to what
our next encounter will bring. If you accept me for who I am and
can find enough acceptance of yourself to allow me to accept you in
the same manner, then our hearts can beat in syncopation together.
There are no perfect people in the world, but there is perfect love
and perfect acceptance and the right person brings the perfect
blend of comfort and excitement. Love is deeper than random
experiences while not precluding the same. It is the cocoon that
allows one to reach out from a place of safety. It is the bedrock
of a life that is fulfilling.
The quality of the journey is every bit as important to you as the
destination. You believe that your soulmate has to be your best
friend by definition. You don't want to settle for less than
everything a person can give and you offer the same in
