My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
OK, great, so you liked the picture! That's one important part of the equation! So, here's the rest of it--what it would actually be like to date me:

Whisked away on adventures and generally experiencing life--winter trips to some beach location, weekend getaways on the motorcycle, romantically making meals together, driving too fast in a sports car to find some obscure wine tasting location, exploring some new ma/pa restaurant out in who-knows-where, weekend ski trips, taking dance classes, random passionate kisses in elevators, signing a waiver to have some fun at something, witty humor that can be high or low brow, and watching lots of movies next to the fireplace when the weather turns to crap. We will be outside a lot whenever the weather permits. You won't ever open your own door or need to pull out your own chair. I am loyal like a labrador; looking for my best friend to enjoy life and not let grass grow under our feet!!! You up for it? I want you in my life! Doing these fun things alone is getting old...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I run two small businesses M-F; it is mostly very interesting work that has certainly influenced who I am, but it doesn't define who I am. Surprisingly, I have more free time than most people and the means to enjoy life's experiences. Need you to share them with me! I am very active during most of my free time, so if you are a big couch potato, we probably won't get along real well...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being modest :-) I talk modestly but let my actions speak loudly...Oh, and story telling.
The first things people usually notice about me

I'm told my smile, and that I'm in decent shape are the "first impressions." After a couple hours, I'm told I come across as calm, collected, articulate, confident, and respectful. I have also been called a Renaissance Man more than a couple of times.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Let's skip to the chase....I like almost anything that goes fast (exception: Not a big fan of fast women). I love motorcycles and fast cars. It is the material possession I simply cannot do without (I can do without everything else!). I also like other things that go fast, downhill skiing and windsurfing would also be in the top five. I go recreational racing now and then (cars, motorcycles, go-karts), so if this freaks you out, move on!!

For indoor activities, I like food and movies a lot, and I want to start learning how to dance. Oh, I love Bears games and Bulls playoffs too...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
God
Love/trust/honesty
Adventure/excitement/laughter
Quality Chicago style pizza
A fast car and a fast motorcycle
Hmmm, five is all I got...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What % of "no replies" to messages does it take to get labeled with a yellow or red mark on your profile? Anyone find that out? What color am I, btw? I'm guessing green or yellow...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends on the weekend. Every other weekend I have my younger teenage girl who is 15 (the older daughter is off at college), so half of the weekends I'm doing something with her. For the other half, I'm likely to do something with a friend, maybe go for motorcycle ride, maybe work on my salsa dancing (I'm just learning), or perhaps go on a date.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I actually like the concept of e-dating. Though being attracted to someone is important, I am simply not the type of person to approach a complete stranger at, say, the grocery store. All I'd know about her is her looks, and that's not enough for me to be "interested" and strike up a conversation. I like the ability to know more about someone before I try to strike up a conversation. Maybe that's the scientist in me?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I want to be upfront with you before we might even email each other: I am NOT interested in jumping into a relationship too quickly. Don't get me wrong--I DO want a good long-term relationship. But, I would really like to go about it the old-fashioned way. I want to do things just as friends, strictly platonic, and see where it goes from there. Worst case is that we just stay friends. Best case, we find we really enjoy each other's company in all sorts of ways. Even if we have chemistry and are both mutually attracted to one another right from day one, I still don't want to take that next (romantic) step unless I know we are compatible as very good friends first. Ideally, my next long term relationship is with my best friend. Sounds archiac in this day and age, I know, but I feel that it is the best way to find someone truly special. Jumping into romance too quickly can be distracting, at least it definitely is for me. I love affection....with the right woman. I just want to make sure I'm giving/receiving that affection to someone I think is pretty special and she feels the same in return...

If you live within 30min or so of me, have a diverse sense of humor, are reasonably fit and like to "do" things and truly experience life, please do write me a note! I'd love to hear from you, and I find it very appealing if the woman is confident and assertive enough to contact me first.
