My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"A love-struck Romeo, sings the streets a serenade, laying everybody low with the love song that he made."

I'm just returning home to the World's greatest city after five months in the World's most beautiful. Hence my profle name. And admittedly, I'm a little blue about it (or should I write bleu). Mon français est encore très mauvais tristement. 10/17/14

I like to think I'm a man of the world, in the best sense of those words. I have been all over it and hope to do more. My most recent was to Tokyo and Hong Kong before sojourning in France.

I am really six feet tall. I am shaved these days, kinda sorta. I own a tux, can make a bow tie, but prefer jeans/khakis. (haven't you seen enough shirtless meatheads by now?). I am curious and analytical. I need to know more and I work towards it sedulously. I am well read, deliberate, fully formed. I discuss provocative things: Politics, God, Sex. I fear not emotion nor communication and least of all, passion.

I quote movies, songs, books and leave poetry on my answering machine (yes, I have an answering machine). I have extrovert skills, but often prefer not to use them. I tend towards the asocial, that's why I prefer to be coupled.

It's me who you call when it's bad in life because I solve problems. I am a flexible, playful soul who keeps Silly a close ally to offset life's eventual trials. This is perspective, not juvenilia. Think Jon Stewart or Letterman (taller than the first, NY jewier than the second). Sundae toppings are always in my fridge! And I don't want to live in a world sans bacon.

I read, hang out well, value your time, am able to jump in, like old movies, sharing appetizers at the bar and know how to hold a fork and knife properly (table manners are a dying artifice, sadly).

I traded in the Corporate life for my own Consulting business and a Dream chase. I make a fine living but money is not my driving force. I don't think Success is measured in bank accounts. It's measured in growth as a human being and the richness of the experiences you have lived.

I know that: you're sexier in my t-shirt than you will ever be in the little black dress, Atkins wasn't a genius (we lourve bread!), you don't need a God to know that you should do unto others kindly, the gap between confidence and arrogance is how attractive you find the guy, if you never fight you don't care enough to be together.

A favorite quote: Memento Mori: Remember you will die. So go have some fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am living between New York and Paris, trying to learn French, trying to make a living and trying to write something eternal.

Primary love: Playwright

Primary sustenance: My own consultancy to small businesses for marketing and finance
www.goldartconsulting.com

I gave up the Corporate job, now I help other people's dreams (their own business) come true. That doesn't suck.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Growing through reading, traveling, exploring, eating, listening, watching, drinking, NOT reading "A Girl With/Who...book, learning French unsuccessfully, guitar-playing, playing in general, kissing, cooking and several other gerunds I can't think of at the moment.

I am a great kisser. Great.

I am great hugger. Great.

I talk the talk. I walk the walk. So should you.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hopefully they notice the playful, slightly mischievous look in my eye.

My look varies depending on whether I've shaved, whether I'm wearing my glasses (apparently it keeps the world from recognizing Superman in Clark Kent), whether I'm wearing a hat, the length of hair and my wardrobe. I'm chameleon.

I take really crappy pictures and look much better in person. Most dates tell me I really need pictures that better capture me.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Reading
Music
Bacon
Sex
New York and Paris
Salt
Naps
Ice Cold Water
Women (you guys really are the greatest thing here on this planet. But on Alpha Centuri V, you're middling at best. ;-) )
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. God, politics, music, the fate of literature, theatre, String theory, coitus, hockey, the ECB, le passe compose, US hegemony, pomegranate seeds, dipthongs, golden retrievers, sauce Bearnaise, the fucking Middle East still, gummi bears, lawn thatch, etc.

On God: I believe in people believing in whatever makes them happy, brings them peace, succor, helps them sleep at night. I am not a believer in the Big Fella, the science outweighs the faith for me...But I'd love to be wrong. In fact I truly hope I am. So I am fine with whatever your beliefs are. Just come back to bed and cuddle up next to me when you're done with your praying, whichever day of the week you do it on. {But when you do come back to bed, don't press your cold feet against me to warm them because that's not nice, that's mean, and your God doesn't want you to be mean}

Did Scooby Snacks actually make him more courageous?

How tragically far from perfect I am.

Why great beauty and great kindness rarely exist in the same person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Pubs, plays, Paris (not hilton), prurient places, bookstores, restaurants, wine bars, walking around this magnificent city at dusk (its apotheosis), that chair outside that shop....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have the coolest snakeskin flask, yes actual snakeskin, which is always filled with some liquor. I like to sneak it into places and drink from it and take pictures of me drinking from it.

Also, growing up, my father said we would "never have a dog." So when we eventually got a dog (and my father was sent packing to another town), a gorgeous beagle, basset, collie mix, we called him Never. Never A. Dog. I think that sums me up pretty well.

I think Total Eclipse of the Heart is a great song.

I would date a girl just because she has a great dog. ;-)

Some nights late, when I hear Joni Mitchell's voice, I know everything is going to be all right.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You find my pictures attractive and my written profile interesting. Very simple.

You wonder why meeting someone you like talking to, being with, being challenged by and being hot for is so fucking hard to find.

The concept of a make-up free day is not completely alien to you. (Fine, okay, lip gloss doesn't count as make-up)

"When love walks in the door, everybody stand up!" Chrissy Hynde

"Do not say, 'Oh, what is it?' Let us go and make our visit." T.S. Eliot

(PS: If you find a guy with a better written profile than this, date him! He's probably awesome....like me)
