Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A self summary. . . hummm. After 4 decades of self reflection,
introspection and talking to myself; I have come so several
conclusions. I value intelligence over agreement, knowledge over
ignorance and strong willed stubbornness (if it's thought out) over
tacit agreement (even if it's one of my core beliefs). I believe
that if you don't have intellectual curiosity, you belong on
But enough abou my beliefs, a little about me physically. I'm

a sunny disposition and laugh easily and often.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In my own way, I try to make myself a better person. I workout as
much as I can. I keep myself well informed daily (NY Times, BBC
World News, WorldNetDaily - just kidding) I exercise regularly, and
I eat healthy, tons of fresh fruits and raw vegatables, no fried
foods except chicken of Lakers game days. (It's a ritual)
In my professional life I am a corporate mouthpiece. The official
name is Technical Sales. It means I explain complicated thing to
simple people for a fee. I am currently trying to upgrade to a
better employer with better corporate benefits that' more recession
I'm currently learning Chinese for fun?!?!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a great listener and an even better confidant. I'm an
incurable romantic and genuiely emphathic. I am articulate, a great
conversationalist and an accomplished racontuer. After writing all
of this I feel compelled to add "huge blowhard".

Usually it's the tail. I mean a two foot long furry tail isn't
really that strange is it. Aside from the that, people often
comment that I look like an adult version of 'Webster'. People also
say I look smart, until of open my mouth and ruin the illussion.

Pablo Neruda described it best. He hadn't met me yet, he didn't
touch my soul until 1990, but I know he had my heart in mind when
he penned this:
IF YOU FORGET ME
I want you to know
You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.
If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.
if each day,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are interested in meeting someone who is serious about
relationships but not serious about life. You're tallish (5' 6" or
better) or very secure and confident. I don't want to tower over my
partner or intimidate her unconsciecely. I am a 6 feet tall black
man, I know the subconscious visual impact that can have. (Have I
mentioned that I think about everything.) You have to like to talk,
be strong willed, opinionated and above all else intelligent. I
grew up watching Katherine Hepburn movies (Deskset/Adam's Rib/Pat
and Mike) and came to think that she reprented the Ideal Woman.
