Above all else, I value intelligence, honesty, beauty (both internal and external), integrity, keen sense of humor, quick wit, passion, and loyalty in a possible mate. I'd describe myself as having the same characteristics as above.
Worked hard my entire life and became quite successful and financially stable...very recently gave up the 9-5 rat race from media/ advertising / publishing business...used to commute and wear a suit and tie every work day for 33 years and now I don't have to!! - it is awesome...one of my passions now is studying and investing in the financial markets...I am also doing some volunteer work at a soup kitchen in downtown Baltimore.
Had a life-changing experience in 1992 when we adopted a beautiful 1 year old boy from Peru. He's now 20 and I'm so proud of the young man he's grown up to be.
I love rock music (mostly late 60's and 70's, (I know, still stuck in my musical time warp)). Huge Ravens, O's, Terps fan. Recently discovered the joys of crossword puzzles; really keeps my mind sharp and I complete (usually) two per day.
I am very much grounded and ready to see what the next phase of life brings...eager to enjoy the company of a wonderful woman to share with me all that is good, fun, and meaningful in this world.
I'm looking for someone who GETS ME and understands me and, of course, vice versa.
