My self-summary
Watched the opening scene in Miami Vice as a kid and fell in love with windsurfing at age 12. Did professional windsurfing for the first part of my twenties, making just enough money to pay bills while getting to see all the beautiful beach sunsets around the world! At age 24, while on a beach in France, some photo shoot was going on and a photographer there notice my feet. I then became a foot model for a number of years. Made a lot of money doing that (who would've thunk it, right?) It was really hard for me to turn to the right during modeling events, and tried to perfect my "Blue Steel" look, but that took several years. I never realized how important having a sexy man foot could be! I spend a lot of my time doing self pedicures and moisturizing between my toes. My self worth is completely wrapped up in how my feet look. ;-)

Yeah, OK, I am an exercise in contradiction a lot of the time. In my "me" time outside of work, my first love is to not take life too seriously very often (see paragraph #1 above) and find every opportunity to laugh in everyday things. That, and I love to find adventure in various ways. On the totally opposite end, at work I'm the boss, so I flip to a serious decision maker side then... I also become very serious when it comes to close friends/family--I am there for them when they need me. Period dot. The perfect match for me is someone that loves to laugh at everyday life and takes life by the horns for the wild ride it can be. But at the same time she also recognizes the truly important relationships in life and cherishes them with the utmost respect.

My sense of humor tends to include movie quotes, intentional puns, innuendos, and a shade of sarcasm. Could be high brow or low brow. If you like to have fun with words, I'll like you, a lot. I’m adventurous in most ways—I like to explore new places, new foods, new experiences. If you're scared of getting on the back of my motorcycle, think downhill skiing is too dangerous, or are not willing to try an ethnic restaurant, I'm most definitely not for you. I like to experience life, not miss out on it!
What I’m doing with my life
Actually, my feet are a little boney, so I never did become that foot model and though I do like to windsurf, I never got very good at it. I went to college like a lot of folks (but studied weird things like eye tracking) and today I run a small business M-F; it is very interesting work that has certainly influenced who I am, but it doesn't define me. Outside of work I'm trying to enjoy life, and it'd be a lot more fun with someone to share! I like to do a wide variety of activities, and I'm very interested in doing or learning new activities with someone. I enjoy almost any outdoor activity, and I have or frequently still do participate in many, such as skiing, golf, sailing, windsurfing, fishing, hiking, gardening, walking, motorcycling, racing, bicycling, tennis, or swimming. I'm totally up for things like zip-lining and rafting too. For being outdoors, I draw the line on ice fishing--I'd rather clean the toilets than ice fish! Indoors, I enjoy movies (in or out), museums, new restaurants, Bears games, salsa dancing, bowling, billiards, darts, cooking, basketball, some video games, occasional Bulls game, or just a quiet evening at home. I must have a partner who likes to "do things" and experience life with me, so if your idea of "spending time" with someone is reading together on the couch, we are not a match.
I’m really good at
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. Later, it's always "I wouldn't have guessed that about you..."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For food, I like almost all foods that I’ve tried. I like American, Polish, Chinese, Mexican, Indian, Italian, Thai, German, you-name-it. I like mild. I like spicy. I like sushi! I'm more picky when it comes to dessert, but for the main course, it's hard to find food I don't like! I usually eat fairly healthy about 90% of the time, but I do have a big weakness for Chicago style stuffed pizza. It's probably my favorite food (that or seafood), and I admit I'm a bit of a snob about pizza! I have a long list of funny pizza stories--yep, and you liked the first paragraph? Well, the pizza ones are true!

I like most movies, and it's a common stay at home activity for me. I especially enjoy watching movies on lousy weather days under a warm blanket, falling asleep at night after a long day. I find that I only occasionally watch a horror or western, but I watch almost all other types of movies pretty frequently (yes, chick flicks can be good too, IMO, and most indeed are). Same goes for music--only type I don't really care for is rap, and I listen to all other forms depending mainly on mood. I enjoy the occasional play, comedy club, mystery theater, jazz or blues club, and new things I've not yet experienced. An opera is not so much me, however...

A huge hobby of mine is anything that goes fast. Well, except women. Yes, I like women that are not fast! Anything else, if it goes fast I like it. Cars, motorcycles, windsurfers, jet skis, etc. If these sorts of things are fun to you, we would at a minimum become friends!
The six things I could never do without
Quality Chicago style pizza
A fast car and a fast motorcycle
Hmmm, five is all I got...
Seriously, I can do w/o everything but the first three...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately? Like I'm shopping at a farm stand a month late and all the good fruit has been picked. Just recently I have really started to think that there are very few "good" single women left out there in my age range. The good women all seem to have already been spoken for? If you feel that way about men (b/c heck, I've only known two men EVER that I would recommend to a single woman), I like you more already. You know, where it seems like the men you meet lack the character and integrity you seek, then maybe you are a good woman. We should chat...
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on the weekend. Every other weekend I have my two teenage girls (18 & 15), so half of the weekends I'm doing something with them. 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 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?
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 32–47
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
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, 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.
