Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If this works, we will have lots of fun. I'm not really thinking of
fun activities (we will do those too). What I'm really talking
about is enjoying being together --- finding it fun to converse and
interact. The woman I wish to spend time with enjoys repartee and
wordplay (perhaps even sarcasm). She wonders about things and likes
to share her thoughts about her curiosities.
I wish to amuse and be amused (as well as have serious or deep
discussions).I am looking for a meaningful connection where we
support, understand, motivate and cheer on each other on our
various pursuits. I am looking for someone who really does want to
get inside my head a bit and who also wants to be really

that provide fulfillment. You probably do not get bored
I consider myself basically a "nice guy" though I hope maybe a
little more cool and creative. I am quite laid back, accepting, and
am very good at not letting the small stuff get to me. I am
endlessly curious and find more things fascinating than most folks
do. I can find interest in most things people would talk to me
I am happy doing just about anything whether its outdoor
activities, just wandering or people watching, or going to an a
destination or event. There are not many places you could take me
where I would be unhappy, aside from events involving lots of small
I go to the gym four or so times weekly and have managed to make
that into a habit. Sometimes I am really into competing with myself
and sometimes it is just a great release, but overall, I find the
gym rather dreary (and all too male) and could easily be convinced
to share some outdoor exercise as an alternative to some of my

I am a great listener. I have been told many times I have "great
hands". I also have an amazing ability to focus on things or tasks
that interest me and have a sharp sense of humor. I notice
connections between things that others may not. Being direct
without offending. Getting worked up about oblivious drivers.

True, anything by Russell Banks. Currently reading more non-fiction
(B) Shawshank Redemption, The BigChill, Forest Gump, Superbad
(C) pad thai, sushi, raw bar, pomegranates, steak
(D) Musical tastes are extremely eclectic -- I love my Pandora.
Most frequently played stations include Bootsey Collins, Parliament
Funkadelic, Arturo Sandoval, Disco Biscuits, The White Stripes, The
Raconteurs, Avenged Sevenfold, Black Mountain, Buena Vista Social
Club, and some Rap (for the gym). At this point, my Pandora
stations have spawned so many generations of babies, that I have no
idea how to label what I am listening to, and know only that it
spans many genres while offering music that has certain similar
qualities that I consistently find compelling.
I love NPR and documentaries. I do not have a tv, but easily find
myself engrossed when I am in front of one. There is not much I

-the "big questions" brought up my work as a therapist
-how to create a side biz that will take small amount of effort
(after set-up) and reap large rewards

-randomness- for example, why, on trash day, are there so many
couches without cushions on the side of the road. Where did the
cushions go? Were the owners so mean-spirited that they hid the
cushions so that noone else could have their couch for free?
-When will I meet someone who wants to hear my musings?
- How it can be that there are so many women on here that say that
they are "always smiling". I am quite sure that I never encounter
this proportion of people that are smiling anywhere.
-Whether I will actually poke my eyes out the next time I see
"live, laugh, love" in a profile.

That I am unlikely to initiate contact with you (even if I find you
ravishing) unless your profile gives me enough information about
your personality and values to make me think there is a fair chance
we will hit it off. I want to start off with better odds than just
liking someone's appearance (although I am admittedly very visually
oriented). I hope my profile is revealing enough for you to have an
idea if we might click. If so, come say hellp
So, if you see a potential connection that I might not recognize in
your profile, please write.
Also, if I fall out of your stated age range or height range or
some other range, feel free to write. I tend to respect the
guidelines that are in your profile, so will not initiate with you
if I fall outside of these.

You have guessed correctly, that I might need some encouragement to
message you. My profile is pretty long, eh? I figure it would give
those who read it a good sense of who I am. If you read this and
the profile appeals to you, there is a good chance you will be my

who is excited by what they have read.

You are willing to engage me in our initial discussions (ask
questions, further the conversation, etc). I spend my days ensuring
that discussion is flowing. If this is my role in dating, it's
gonna feel too much like work. I promise, if you throw out a
conversation direction, I can take it and run.
