My self-summary
I am a financially comfortable middle-aged intellectual, country sensibilities, busy, full life, missing only romantic companion. Maybe a bit of a nerd because of my interest in things of the mind, but also art and music.

6' 190, ; 2nd gen. Italian/Austrian ethnicity, athletic body-type, salt/pepper hair, close-cut beard, vegetarian, physically fit,

Three years ago, an insidious illness took a beloved woman from me, after our short time together. The memory of that love brings me here looking for another chance at romance.

I do small scale real estate investing for money, and my other time is in academic subjects, especially science, history, and psychology. Lover of music, and art of all kinds. Former Army Civil Affairs Officer with a background in refugee/immigrant assistance. I was a teacher of children and adults for 20 yrs.

Looking for an intelligent, vital, compassionate woman, slender to avg body-type. Someone not likely to find a cerebra man boring. A woman who does not depend on fashion, high heels, or cosmetics to feel like a woman.

I don't have children, but would be especially interested in meeting a woman with dependent children for whom I might make a difference in their lives.
