Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm seeking a strong, intelligent, accomplished woman, with whom I
can establish an interesting, creative and, I hope, erotic
I'm smart, educated, good-looking (even if I say so myself),
entertaining and in-shape European. I'm a writer and an
Sure, attractiveness is important. However, as they say, the mind
is the greatest aphrodisiac. So I'm looking for someone who
appreciates privacy and companionship, who enjoys reading and
talking, film and theater, someone who is ready to entertain new
ideas and who won't fall of a chair in horror when she comes across
something unfamiliar. It's getting harder and harder to have
intelligent conversations these days because people feel obliged to
start screaming or marching out of restaurants the moment they hear
an opinion with which they disagree. I have no interest in spending
time with purveyors of politically correct bromides.
So ideas are important. Conversation is important. Spontaneity is

non-conformist (in the best non-religious sense) is important. And
imagination is important. They are bloody hard to find singly; in
combination, they are well-nigh impossible. Oh, well, hope springs
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Here are a few pet peeves of mine. I'm only half-serious about
I must confess I'm sick to death of the social media, Facebook,
iPhone, Twitter world we're all obligated to swim in these days. I
prefer the real thing: real people, real conversations, real play.
I need something with zest and bite, something that gets me out of
bed in the morning. Facebook doesn't do that; nor does any virtual
Also, isn't there anyone out there who doesn't insist on removing
every single follicle of body hair? I don't think I'm being
perverse in finding natural women both feminine and sexy. Why this
American obsession to depilate and denature? It's naturalness that
makes people unique; fakery makes everyone like everyone else, and
who needs that?
But, then, I've long considered it a hopeless struggle. Forty years
ago, Germaine Greer wrote that "Men who do not want their women
shaved and deodorized into complete tastelessness are powerless
against women's own distaste for their bodies." So there.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking and writing. That can be a good or a bad thing, of course.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I could provide a long list for each of them but I don't think they
would give anyone any sense of who I am.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I don't like the suggestion that I could never do without
something. It's a good bet that at some point in my life I will
have to do without one or other or--perish the thought--all of
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Wondering why it's all going by so quickly.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I have no great faith in online dating.
