My self-summary
*splitting time in CLE/CMH
Kind, generous, honest: loves being outdoors, movies, reading, listening to the rain, classic cocktails, Cuban cigars, the beach, boating, traveling. Working on becoming more mindful, present and aware.

I'm currently rehabbing a 100+ year old home. You should definitely message me if you can pitch in! J/K

Urban gardener,
amature Tomato-ista.

My friends would describe me as dependable, trustworthy, caring, motivated, and having a good sense of humor.
Mostly down to Earth. I've learned a few things and am fairly clear on who I am and where I'm headed.

Outgoing and energetic, yet peaceful too. A smile should be shared. Laughter should be frequent.

What you see is what you get. All photos are legit, including the ones sans makeup. I'm real and want you to see that up front. The professional ones are as well. I work in an office and love my job - all the pressure and (truly) fun. Now, I'd love to come home to something more. I'm beginning to believe in soulmates. Maybe.

Long suffering Indians and Browns fan. It's a birthright, what can ya say?
That means I can laugh at myself .... = loves to laugh!

A vegetarian who happily wears leather. Chew on that for a while...

You are:
A sense of humor is a must -- life is too short!

A real man who stands tall because he has pride in himself. Is tougher than I am, a survivor - but compassionate.

An honest, intelligent, loyal, and considerate person is important to me; someone who is active and lives a healthy lifestyle. Sharing similar interests would be great, and learning something new sounds like fun. Basically, I know who I am and what I want and it would be nice to meet someone who feels the same way about himself. If you think we'd be a good match, send me a message! I'd like someone strong enough that my soft side can shine. An alpha for my pseudo-alpha, lol?

If you enjoy single malts and the occasional cigar, own yourself in your own moments, like exploring wherever you are at, enjoy a night in just as much as out - it's on.
What I’m doing with my life
Yep - this about sums it up!
Yes, I'm 37, never been married, no kids, and am happy with my career and life in general.
I'm ready to be wowed and open to letting it happen.

I've seen some amazing things in the world, from Hungary to Cuba, but there's more out there. Ever cross the Danube on foot in -5 degree weather?
I’m really good at
Finding new places and different ways to get there.
I'd also like to think I'm good at teaching, but I usually end up learning more from my students as they teach me.
Connecting people.
The first things people usually notice about me
Laughter and fun. A sense of passion and purpose, my eyes.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
purpose, goals, connecting people
Why high heels were purposely created to look amazing yet are vehicles of pure torture by 11 pm.
On a typical Friday night I am
Meeting friends, traveling or out for a wine/whiskey tasting. Or lately, working or grading papers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can dance and play an instrument, but can't drive stick. Go figure. I dress conservatively at work, but have a drawer of colorful nail polish I can never wear.

I secretly wish I could hack.

You should message me if are smart, goal oriented, funny and enjoy life! realize that just "Hi" or "Hello" isn't going to make me swoon. understand that just because I/women in general *can* do most things "all by myself" doesn't necessarily mean I/we want to. Where's the fun in that? :)
The two of us
