My job requires me to be extremely social, and since that comes naturally to me, it turns work into a pleasure. Nothing’s more interesting to me than meeting new people and hearing their stories. One of my talents is throwing parties that bring completely random groups of people together successfully.
Over the years I’ve learned to avoid taking anything for granted so I do my best to live each day to its fullest. I’m very active and try to work out at least five times a week. I live practically on top of Forest Park, so I’m able to take full advantage of its proximity, whether it’s biking, hiking, or throwing a ball around with my boys. Though I’m not a “gym rat,” I truly enjoy almost all forms of working out—even yoga!—and if I could find a woman who shared that passion, I’d probably be the happiest guy on the planet.
But it’s not all just work and exercise. Since moving into my current home, I’ve realized that I’ll probably never live anywhere that doesn’t have a fireplace, because reading by a roaring fire is truly one of life’s finest pleasures. Right now I’m on a British ghost story kick. My taste in movies tends to run towards the silly—“Harold and Kumar,” “House Bunny,” that kind of thing. My tastes aren’t completely lowbrow though; I regularly attend the symphony, opera and dance performances. Martha Graham’s troupe was recently in town and I loved it.
Dressing well is also important to me. I get my suits tailored and I’m still working my way through a collection of shoes I bought on a recent trip to Italy. I know I’m in the minority, but I consider “business casual” a travesty. You won’t catch me in a stretched-out polo and ill-fitting pair of khakis. Not at the office, anyway.
I’m looking for a woman with similar tastes (though I’m willing to forgive an intolerance for Harold and/or Kumar). Someone ambitious and intellectual, who enjoys being active, dresses well, and is neat without being neurotic. Because I socialize so much, I’d love a partner who could happily circulate on her own at a party, secure in the knowledge that she’s going home with me.
