Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm your average renaissance man. Successful, educated,
alive--happy. Have earned my arrogance. (Modest too.)
I am blessed (really I didn't do anything to earn this) with an
intense awareness and appreciation of music, art, theater,
gymnastics, chess, the law and football. (to name a few)
Complex I am but send me your Gordian knot. I'll take a hack at
I'll be a lot happier when I find my other half.
If I like a joke I tell it over and over again. If my friends tire
of them I trade them in for new friends.
"What's more important, the sun or the moon?
"Obviously, the moon cause the sun's there when it's light anyway
but the moon--it comes on at night when it's dark and you really
need it. Hah. Heard that when I was 6. Good, huh?
"How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb?" Oops,
have to trade you in.
Quips I like:
"When you get to the fork in the road--take it" Yogi Berra.
"Nobody goes to this restaurant anymore--it's too crowded. YB
"When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping." Anon.
"A shortcut is the longest distance between two points".
"We read so we may know we are not alone", Anthony Hopkins in a
Brit film--master to student at boarding school.
"I used to be different but now I'm the same".
"Put two Rabbis (or 2 CNBC commentators) in a room and you get 3
"He's entitled to his own opinions but he's not entitled
to his own facts".
"I update so I may pretend that somebody reads this", Me.

I am a Libertarian and admirer of Ayn Rand (though not a cultist).
This is not a parlor conversation matter. "Life, Liberty and the
pursuit of Happiness" is real to me.
The New Hampshire flag captures my feeling well; it blasts--
"Don't tread on me".
I see that this process of finding my mate is going to take work;
it won't happen magically. I have the means and will travel almost
anywhere to find my woman.
It just occurred to me to mention this:
If you have children you are raising this is a bonus
not an obstacle!
I just noticed this old answer re ruling the earth -- and I like my
answer enough to repeat it here for your consideration.
"I want only to rule myself. I am so liberal and so respectful of
others that I am NOT a left-winger. I don't want to tread on the
dreams of any mortal and so..... egalitarianism is toxic to me. No
redistribution of wealth. If you are open to consider this point of
view we could meet or at least talk.
BTW no silver spoon was I given. Now I even have a silver fork. "I
used to be different but now I'm the same" means I've had my values
since I was 12."
