Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Handsome, intelligent, athletic, unconventional, creative, romantic
and financially secure are some of the adjectives that describe me.
I grew up in the idyllic world of the South Peninsula of the San
Francisco Bay. Summers were spent riding horses, playing tennis and
cycling around Crystal Springs, and Christmases in Sun Valley
skiing and caroling in horse drawn sleighs. One of my fondest
memories was riding a horse named “Midnight” in the early morning
before school. The air was cool and sweet with the scent of lemons.
Moments such as these continue to fuel my passion for life. After
school in England and on the East Coast, I returned to the Bay
Area, where I had a career in the investment field and an active
avocation as an operatic and jazz singer. I have a great enthusiasm
for life, learning, and good friends. I love to cook and enjoy a
good discussion on almost any topic. I love the fantastic realism
of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and medieval Spanish poetry. One of my
greatest pleasures is trading funny stories and singing a few
romantic ballads while cleaning up after a small dinner party. I
also cherish moments of natural beauty—a special vista in the
mountains, or a smile with morning coffee. Despite a childhood bout
with ill health , I love to ski, hike, play tennis and swim in the
San Francisco Bay! I was also blessed with a fine Tenor voice and
have been tempted toward a career on occasion. I have done well in
life and look forward to sharing my energy, depth and passion with
someone special.I am looking for a very special lady with whom to
share my life and start a family. She is intelligent, curious, well
raised, well educated and creative. She likes to laugh at herself
as well as at circumstances. She has dealt with her own issues in
life and is a happy and complete person by herself. She is
emotionally mature and has suffered enough of life's blows to show
her what is valuable and what is not. She is passionate but not a
zealot. She likes a good leg of lamb and a good bottle of wine and
thinks it is just fine that I like to hunt birds and belong to a
men's club. She is tolerant and can respect a different point of
view even though she may not hold that point of view. She has her
definite preferences but is wise enough not to push them on her
mate. Although she is talented and probably successful, she
realizes that her true legacy will come through her family and is
willing to make the work sacrifices necessary to raise her children
with her husband. Although she wants a family and children, she is
not overly wed to all the trappings, the house, the lifestyle, the
vacations, the job status. What is really important to her is the
quality of her relationship with her husband and nurturing the love
between them. She knows that you can only change yourself and your
reactions to the world. She is supportive and loving but lets her
mate change himself in his own way and live according to his values
and aspirations. She really loves him for who he is, good points
and bad and knows that their love will grow and mature as they meet
life's challenges together.
