I think deeply, act deliberately, and hope always to live more wisely and well. I value authenticity, kindness, and wit; I feel more at ease with intimate conversation and warmly engaged eye contact than with the din and clamor of strangers and crowds. Frequently struck by beauty, I accept my sentimentality.
I can be foolish but might listen if you say so, nicely.
I value solitude as much as closeness. I need touch. There are many kinds of silence, some of them comfortable, even nourishing.
I am a sports fan but not much of an athlete. Years ago, I approached mediocrity at basketball. As proof I offer a bum knee, a tricky spine, and a few inconspicuously chipped teeth.
Sunshine buoys me, although I am quite nocturnal. I love my work as a doctor and enjoy a small number of fine friends.
When I see a dog, I smile and involuntarily say, "Doggie."
I appreciate courtesy and social grace.
I alternate between believing that I can sing well and acknowledging that I might be mistaken.
I might kick you in my sleep, or speak nonsense (also, usually, while asleep). For these I apologize in advance.
I hope to find here a companion who lives an examined life but does not suffer too greatly as a result.
I want someone who likes ideas, is present in the moment, and accepts that I flunked yoga and adore my sofa. This is not to say that I am sedentary but rather that I manage to counterbalance my couch's need for company with my own for physical activity.
