My self-summary
I still believe that love is our finest instinct... a sensible, but transcendent urge designed by nature to keep special people we can depend on close. I’ve been divorced since 2001, with no children, and am looking for chemistry and shared values, intimacy and pleasure with a woman whose qualities compliment and reflect my own.

Despite not having kids, I get interns sometimes, and rented a room to a young protégé last year so she could afford to live in DC while working at one of our national museums. She left for graduate school in art conservation in the fall and though I'm awfully proud of her and simply adore her, I feel like an "empty nester" now, and would love to meet someone who I don't have to love like a daughter...
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an art conservator.
I’m really good at
I'm a pretty good mentor.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, obviously how handsome, witty and charming I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Art and politics, Sunday NYT... The Atlantic... and Salon. Some favorites books are... John Berger "Ways of Seeing"; John Dewey "Art as Experience"; and William James, "Varieties of Religious Experience" and other collected writings.

Classic Soul and Old School R&B, 60's 80's, symphony and opera... especially Italian.
Six things I could never do without
Music and Arts
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home with a glass of wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The beard is pretty recent.
Although not private, I have no interest at all in anyone, anywhere on the right of the political spectrum ... no Republicans, Libertarians, Trump apologists, etc.
Seriously, Thanks.
You should message me if
OK Cupid is kind of kicky and fun... but can also be a bit demoralizing... as I guess all internet dating sites are. If you're a freak and a swinger... or whatever... that's just great for you. But damn if it isn't depressing for someone who's looking for a partner.

I have duel US/EU citizenship (Ireland) and am considering moving to Europe, maybe Amsterdam after the election of this stupid sonovabitch... I am seriously interested in exploring this, so if you have EU citizenship and are capable of living there, or want to move there and would like to meet an American man then I'm interested in hearing from you.

* According to the OkCupid - 'YOUR TYPE OF GIRL TEST' - my type is the "Girl Next Door"... though she might be an artist or an academic too.
The two of us
