Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
HSV (herpes) is not cool, but it is frequently asymptomatic, much
misunderstood, and is far more common than most people believe. In
any case, it certainly doesn't define who I am.
This Brit found the desert totally captivating (after all, I had
been raised in a land almost devoid of sunshine!).
I am a smart, educated (Oxford, UW, and UCLA), and literate
professional (but make no mistake, literacy is only a tool: I'd
rather actually do something than read an account of somebody
Since coming to the U.S., I have lived in LA and Philadelphia, and
was also lucky enough to get a 3-year assignment to a project in
France (best food ever, and I didn't gain a pound!)
I enjoy magnificent scenery, concerts, good food, and good
conversation . . . and I NEVER EVER EVER watch Football or NASCAR!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I really respect the people I work with (professionals, every one)
and it is great to work with such a talented group.
I do smell-the-roses, but it's not worth much without somebody with
me who also appreciates it.
I love to get out of town or go for a spirited triple-digit jaunt
in one of my refined toys (Porsche/Polaris/Honda) ... "Safety Fast"
is my watchword.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a good listener, a really good problem-solver; and I am also
smart, articulate, and literate.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I still ocassionally use expressions that, while clearly
understandable, betray my Brit origins and are not US idiom.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
House of Games and All the Usual Suspects are my all-time favorite
movies and Chicago is the best musical I've seen.
I love the food from Asia: Indian, Thai, and Japanese (in that
order . . . but NOT Chinese). Middle-Eastern food is also high up
in my estimation.
As to music . . . it has to be Rock or Blues (never miss Eric
Clapton when he comes to town).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The love of a great partner (where are you?)
The company of family and good people
The satisfaction of a job well done
The intense light of a cloudless sky
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where you are hiding . . . and how we are going to find each other.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Getting laundry done so it wo'nt have to be done on Saturday
(boring . . . maybe you could help me kick that habit!)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Actually I don't even know what the most private thing would be . .
. so admitting it is not even a possibility.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are smart and witty and competitive and have a zest for life .

few Brits who is not pretensious or boring!)
