Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A little about me:
I am a Southern Gentleman. Grew up in Kentucky, but have lived in
CA for over 25 years. I am a good conversationalist but don't have
to fill every moment with chatter. I have a quick wit and good
sense of humor, so you better be ready to laugh. Even better if you
can catch me off guard with a joke and make me (almost) spit my
I'm very active. No couch potato, here. I play tennis weekly with
the same group I have played with for years. I have also completely
fallen in love with two man beach volleyball! I play once or twice
a week at Corona Del Mar and have for the past 5 years.
I'm a good cook and enjoy either cooking for a group or sharing the
kitchen. Love to share a good bottle of wine most any time. Always
looking for new ones to try. I have been cruising Central Coast
wineries for years. I love that area and intend to have a second
home there in the next couple of years.
I like most all types of music and listen to classic rock, classic
R&B, some from the '80s to current. I even like Hip Hop, if it
has a good beat. Love to dance and know how to lead. Love live
music in local venues.
Own my own home and love spending time there. I grew up around cars
and construction so, I can fix most anything. (I look pretty good
in a tool belt!)
Love pets, have a cat named Ally who guards the house.
I am looking for a partner to spend my life with. Not sure about
marriage, but not a player. If you are a smart, funny, affectionate
lady with a good heart who doesn't sweat the small stuff, you are
the one for me. Being a good communicator is a must.
Hope to see you soon.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work: I am self employed. Run my own M&A practice and do
business consulting. The other thing that I do and am most
passionate about is running an advisory group for CEOs of larger
companies. It is very rewarding to help people have better, more
productive business and personal lives. Along the way, I learned
that too much work is not good for the soul or a relationship. So,
I work to live, not live to work.
Play: I like to participate in sports and events. Not much of a
spectator at anything except tennis. Doing some soul searching,
looking for the right partner. Way past due for a vacation, but
don't like to travel alone. Much more fun traveling with someone I
care about. So, here I am looking...
Family: I don't live near family. Have a brother and sister but
only get to see them a couple times each year. I love the idea of
being adopted by your family.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
In work, negotiating, helping people solve work and life problems.
In life, listening, picking out great music for the occassion.
Entertaining. I love having friends over for a pool party or a
gourmet dinner. Wine tasting, I am somewhat knowledgeable but not a
snob. More fun if I have a partner in crime. Beach volleyball.
Started playing about 5 years ago and can't get enough.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Warmth, smile, eyes, sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lots of non fiction for fun. Recently, Stephen Coonts, Robert
Parker, Robert Crais. Many varied biographies. Lots of online
reading for business. Movies, comedies, dramas, watch mostly at
home. I just added a theater room with a large projector screen.
Bring the popcorn!! Small restaurants, most any type of food. Love
sushi. Love live music. My favorite venues are in Laguna Beach.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, fireplace, sex, music and the love of a good woman
(still looking for this one).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, past, future, where our country is going, my next, and
hopefully last, great love.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either home doing sushi and a movie or out listening to music.
