Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How are you? I am well. Thanks for asking. First off I have to say
I admire you for being here online searching for someone nice to be
with. It isn’t an easy process - a lot of rejection taken and
given. And here we are.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
But where are you from? I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma, and
although I left there years ago, I still have the core concepts,
the basic values. On the continuum from astrology to science, I am
far to the science side.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like things that make logical sense. I like evidence. And this is
true even though I have a little musical talent, and count myself
as a true romantic.
I am romantic enough to maintain the singer-songwriter act I
started undergrad at Stanford and to have bold plans to compile,
record and perform my forty best songs.

I believe in my work as a lawyer, too. It sustains me, and not just
financially. I get a lot out of it, and I love the people I work
with in a small plaintiff personal injury firm in downtown
I live in Oakland, too, in the wonderful Rockridge Neighborhood.
Where do you live?

Along with my work on the law, I have also done a fair amount of
work on myself. So I hope you are introspective or at least have a
positive impression of therapy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I go to movies a lot, and some recent favorites are “Birdman”,
“Boyhood” and “The Silver Linings Playbook”. I don’t like
animation, special effects or heavy gunfire. My favorite actors are
Russell Crowe and Tilda Swinton. What have you seen lately that you
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have strong feelings about music - if I like a song I get
goosebumps all over and my veins feel shot full of creme de menthe.
I love REM, the Byrds, the Dead and Led Zeppelin.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I believe relationships are all about talk, and I like meeting a
woman where it seems we could talk for hours without much effort.
But I don’t like small talk. I am present, a good listener,
engaging and direct. How about you?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I want to meet a woman who knows how to work through the conflicts
that inevitably arise in a good relationship - a woman who can talk
about what is happening in the relationship, what is happening in

I hope you haven’t lost your capacity to think critically, or your
sense of humor, if that makes sense. I do not see the world from an
Eastern, Zen-like perspective. I like the great books of Western
Civilization. I like Shakespeare.
Again, good for you for being out here, looking online - it ain’t
easy. If you think we might possibly connect, please get in touch.
We can talk a bit by phone and then go for coffee or a drink.
Thanks, and I look forward to meeting you soon.
