I tend to be more comfortable one on one once I get to know you. I
consider myself to be a good listener and communicator but do not
particularly enjoy attending large social functions. I enjoy my job
as an administrative analyst but at this stage in my life looking
forward to retirement in about 2 or 3 years. I'm a political
junkie, tennis addict and music lover. I'm an avid reader of the NY
Times but can appreciate a good novel as well.
What I’m doing with my life
I enjoy playing tennis on the weekends or meeting up with my two
siblings or traveling to visit old friends.
I’m really good at
being introspective and not flying off the handle right away and
then I'll address what's bugging me when I've cooled off a bit.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure about this one...

Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities, John Irving's Cider House
Rules, Richard Russo's Empire Falls & Nobody's Fool, Marquez's
Love in the Time of Cholera, She's Come Undone by Lamb.
I love escape movies: The Great Escape, Shawshank Redemption and of
course the classic Count of Monte Cristo.
I love almost everything by Powell & Pressburger such as the
ballet movie THE RED SHOES and the opera adaptation TALES OF
I love anti-war movie classics like Kubrick's Paths of Glory or the
french movie Grand Illusion.
Two favorite Harrison Ford movies: Witness & Regarding
I LOVE MUSIC, all music from 50's R&B to 60's British invasion
to Acoustic Blues, classic jazz, 20's & 30's big band every
sunday on WFUV, classical piano such as Pictures at an Exibition
and opera from Aida to Carmen to Tales of Hoffman
The six things I could never do without
My tennis racket, old recordings, movies, intimacy, passion and a
joy of discovering something new.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Women! They're everywhere! Just kidding.
I think a lot about what i'm going to do when I retire.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually staying home after work with a glass of wine and a netflix.
I have The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel right now. I watch Washington
Week with Gwen Ifel (spelling). I love public television and did I
mention, i'm a political junkie! I love Shields & Brooks on the
News Hour, civil discourse between the left & right.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I better keep that one private...
You should message me if
you want to have intimacy. It's important to touch and be touched
