Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You have an active mind, body and spirit, an open heart, and a love
of laughter. You dream of diving with dolphins and climbing your
You live close to the edge for the quickening view, and you stay
physically fit because you crave the energy to live your life to
You are spontaneous, optimistic, and adventurous.
Your life is interwoven with mutually supportive friends and
family. I see you in my mind's eye entering a room, radiating your
inner beauty, appreciated as kind and caring, warm and witty,
positive and playful.
Yet after a hard day you can let your hair down with me, and I'll
cook. I'll accept you as you are, and give you the respect you
deserve. Oh, you can count on me to tease, all right, but by the
way I gently wrap my strong arms around you, you'll always know
you're safe with me. Besides, at those times when you are your best
self, you're simply dynamite.
You are smart, sometimes sassy, and clearly self-reliant; but you
also enjoy being spoiled rotten on no special occasion.
You know to care for yourself first in order to have the energy to
care for others.
You risk vulnerability and share your feelings to reveal your
deepest self and your highest truth.
Like me, you recognize that you are here for a unique purpose.
Discovering and living in alignment with that purpose is what
drives you. You want a partner who is as eager to spur you on in
that quest as you are to inspire him in his.
You work hard, as do I, pouring your personal energy into your
profession in service of others. But you also recharge your
batteries at regular intervals, and love being whisked away to
places near and far.

we cycle past olive groves, villas, and vineyards on our culinary
discovery tour, occasionally dismounting to swish a luscious
Montepulciano and savor a succulent bounty of simmering
temptations. Along the way we delight in meeting and laughing with
new found friends from countries far and wide.

landscapes but in having new eyes." ~Marcel Proust

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you
have forgotten the words.
Or as it says on a prized coffee mug a buddy of mine gave me for my
last birthday, "A friend is someone who knows all about you...and
likes you anyway."
Paying attention, which costs nothing and yet yields high
Growing up in Chicago, I visited Buckingham Fountain on many an
occasion, fascinated by the arcs of water coiling like ropes from
one level to the next, a splashing cacophony of illuminated
streams, the sunlight transforming all the droplets and bubbles
into prismatic microcosms, while the wind was whipping the spray
against my face like thousands of tiny needles. Ahhh!

...you're looking for an independent man who appreciates the unique
gifts you give to the world; a man who is confident, caring,
courageous, conscientious, and a cut-up. And secure enough in
himself that should you ever “lose it,” you can rely on him to be
present to you, ride out the storm, and marvel at all the passion
you bring to life.
