My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let me bottom-line it for you because this will either have you read on or skip my profile now and move on with mutual respect in tact, saving us both hurt feelings and wasted time.

Bottom-line: I'm interested in well-rounded, happy successful men.
Well-rounded in terms of having experiences and attitudes about life, culture, race, people, spirituality that are more open and broad than not. Happy in terms of your outlook on life. And successful in terms of your health, career, finances, and relationships with others in your life; you're in good condition in those ways so your partner can just be the delightful cherry on top (rather than the whole cake). Finally, are you open to and ready for partnership and parenthood? I am. If you're not, we may need to part ways here.

Still reading? Ok.

The former New Yorker in me makes me direct and all the personal growth work has helped me know who I am and what matters to me. I love witty, inspiring conversations with intelligent creative people -- and if they're also tall, dark and handsome and sexy to me in some way, well, so be it. Some of my favorite times are when I'm walking around a city or hiking in nature, enjoying art or a performance, and sharing ideas with someone. I have a soft spot for those with an entrepreneurial spirit and creative inventive types because I'm passionately engaged in building a business -- so I work hard at that -- and I think we would "get" each other. Even though your goals may be different, I hope you're passionate about them and engaged in them.

I'm more spiritual than religious. I'm not interested in converting you or in being converted -- I think there's room for mutual respect here too. If that's something you can handle, good. If it's something you welcome, even better. And I find energy, aliveness, and authenticity incredibly attractive. Yes, age is just a number, and yet I know myself well enough to know that I gel best with people who are physically, emotionally, intellectually energetic, fun, empowering folks.

And you're not just a good guy but a dynamic man who also shares my values and at least an interest or two. Your confidence comes from what you've achieved or what you're working on in your life, and you're proud of it without being cocky. Thankfully, the world is full of good guys. I'm just interested in more than that. If you think that's you, and you're down with all of the above, I hope I'll hear from you.

-----------------------------

Haven't lost you yet? Woo hoo! You're getting my hopes up.

Caribbean roots-- raised in Trinidad, I'm friendly, charming, engaging, funny, kind, good listener though I occasionally get so excited I interrupt. Ok, what else? I'm sensual, exciting and excitable, loyal, love to laugh, love to make others laugh. I'm thoughtful (though I could put some more work into this one), and creative. Really enjoy improv classes, experiencing art and theater, hiking, long walks, and great conversations. Finally, I'm adventurous, ambitious, and now that I think about it some more, impatient and yet optimistic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm the artsy creative typed turned entrepreneurial -- really I'm just meshing the two together. So I'm in the adventure of my life! I love who I've become and I'm in this really exciting place of exploration of new things, new possibilities, new career, new city (moved to DC a year and a half ago), and more. I'm focused, ambitious, driven where it comes to the things I really care about. At the moment, finding the love of my life and making mad success in my business are at the top of the list.

I have these big things, big dreams I want to fulfill in my time here on the planet (more on those when we know each other better) and I know it will take more than a life of safe, easy steps or ordinary moves to accomplish them, so I'm mixing my own rhythms and dancing as fast as I can to get in harmony with this life I've imagined and with what I'm here for. I'm here on OKC because I'm looking for a dance partner who is also looking for me.

And you?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
* Listening and being curious
* Networking
* Dancing -- especially to reggae and calypso
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd say big brown smiling eyes and most people smile when we meet typically because I'm smiling too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS/READING: I LOVE poetry! Lately, I've been into how-to books on success in business and investing and I'm always up for books on personal development and building business.

MOVIES: I loved Clooney's indy film Good Night and Good Luck, Spike's Inside Man, and small films like Ordinary People, and Amelie; and though I haven't seen Before Sunrise and Before Sunset in a long time, both are still real favorites of mine.

MUSIC: Love to dance, so anything with a beat. And if you love Snap Judgement, This American Life, or similar radio shows, I know we'll get along.

FOOD: Give me Thai, Vietnamese, Indian food any day of the week. And I practically live on kale and scrambled eggs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Laughter
wi-fi (or some way to get on the web)
My cell phone
Good conversation
Touch (slow hand and an easy touch)
Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
* Developing my business
* How to retire by 45, move to a beach somewhere, and from there sculpt, read, make love, and run my global empire from my laptop while sitting on my front porch overlooking the water, next to my man who is charming, funny, intelligent, and really, really fine.
* the family I want to have someday soon.
* kissing and being kissed. Looking forward to that most of all.

* My ideal relationship would be a true PARTNERSHIP: connection, mutual support, great communication, having each others' backs, having fun in each other's company, and creating a family together.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Love hiking and long walks. I'm a big fan of modern dance and dance theater like Ailey company, regular theater and going to art museums. And Of course, going dancing. These are things I absolutely love but haven't been doing. Looking forward to going with someone.

At the moment, I may end up finishing up some work or sometimes it's impromptu dinner with a girlfriend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll give ya three.

So because I love dance, I could watch clips from So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing with the Stars for hours -- and have sometimes late at night. It's my favorite procrastination activity.

I get lost in DC about twice a week. Still.

And I sometimes wear my wig in the shower.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
* You have a joyful, passionate, positive outlook on life and the world, and there's a dynamism about you and you're confident enough to be with a woman about whom that is true.
* You're looking to date and get to know someone and have a long-term relationship, and you're not scared off by the f-word (family).
* You are anti-smothering but pro-cuddling
* You are confident in who you are and what you have to offer the world, and maybe even ambitious. You care about health and being fit (you don't have to be fanatical but aware, fit, in-shape, and energetic are turn-ons).
* You love conversation, not just interrupted monologues but real back and forth, give and take, talk and listen, share and connect conversation, definitely message me.
*You took the time to create a profile and answer questions (and you're not challenged by writing sentences with more than four words). AND your profile includes a picture of yourself.
* We're at least a 70% match.
* You live in/ near this general area -- Washington, DC metro area.

I'm a trooper, I have a great positive attitude about life and the world (yes, this very world we live in) and I'm interested in someone who shares such an outlook. You don't know-it-all about everything, but you're curious, a learner interested in ongoing growth as a human being, so you still read, still seek. You're emotionally available, self-aware, ambitious, open-minded. You care about communication, you're a mature, bright, kind, manly, fit, active, confident, gentle man.
