My self-summary
Greetings, fellow reluctant online dating candidate!

I'm a successful and established creative professional, well educated (went to college two years early when I was 16), well traveled, with lots of diverse interests, passions, and obsessions in life: from Madonna to medicine to Monet—from politics and economics to zombie movies—from skyscrapers and animal crackers to nuclear weapons, Impressionist art, and Indian food.

I'm 6'7" (yes, that's 6'7", not 6'1"), built like a tall, huge, strong, boyish, masculine, clean-cut, teddy bear (but NOT hairy like a teddy bear, LOL). I'm stable, sane (though eccentric and rife with harmless idiosyncrasies). VERY NICE guy, sweet, old-soul. Honest, honorable, principled, romantic at heart, fun, funny (well, at least I think so)

I'm playful, playfully aggressive (love to wrestle and roughhouse, have pillow fights, etc.), but also a very sweet and affectionate guy, too. A true and hopeful romantic at heart.

Thanks to a loving family I was raised with great values and morals, and so I essentially aspire to the same things most straight people do in life--romance, monogamy, marriage, family--be it pets, kids, or both LOL--I just happen to want all of that with someone of the same gender, WHEN the right guy comes along (i.e., don't worry, I'm not looking to propose on the first date). I've been in love before, and know that it's something that has to happen organically and over time through shared experiences (ergo, I don't believe in love at first sight. Lust at first sight, well, that's another matter, LOL).

I'm out, well-adjusted, and perfectly comfortable with who I am, but my sexuality doesn't define me.

Open to all possibilities, from friends (can never have too many of those) to long as it's honest and sincere.
What I’m doing with my life
I am very happy and settled in my career, and am blessed with a wonderful family and wonderfully loyal and supportive friends. I would just love to have a nice, caring person--a companion, a best friend (the "friend" part of boyfriend is the most important part for me)--to share it all with. A partner-in-crime to take weekend road trips and have misadventures with, someone to give/get TLC to/from when one of us is under the weather, and especially someone to come home to and snuggle/cuddle with at night while watching movies and bad late-night TV.
I’m really good at
writing, driving, listening (I'm everyone's Dr. Phil @ work), making someone laugh, being a good friend, judging someone's character (or lack thereof), coming up with ideas, planning/organizing an event/project/task, troubleshooting, crisis/emergency management, being everyone's go-to/411/911.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height/size: "Are you really 6'7"?" someone will ask. "No, it's an optical illusion," ha ha (that would be kinda hard thing to fake on a first date, don't you think?), and also my voice (people are always telling me I should be on radio or be an announcer).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Random Interests, Passions and Obsessions: Autumn, politics, writing, medicine, obscure and provocative films, double entendres, speeding, satire, farce, Impressionism, traveling off the beaten path, road trips, scenic drives and walks, the Berkshires, Cape Cod, New England, wine, espionage, hyperbole, dining out, white noise, economics, perfecting the Long Island Iced Tea, Britcoms, the Cold War, chess, accent lights, nuclear weapons, animal crackers, fresh air, wrestling, imitating others, managing my cow lick, popping bubble wrap, skyscrapers, submarines, Indian food. art deco, being a night owl.

Music: Jazz and Blues (Coltrane, Hartman, Davis, Washington, Holiday), Classical (Chopin, Mahler, Mendelssohn, et al), Club/Dance, Madonna, Cher, George Winston, most pop, light rock, etc.--pretty much everything but rap and country.

Six things I could never do without
OK, aside from the obvious (family, friends, etc.), here you go:

*My memory
*My car (love long drives and road trips)
*Indian food (I think I was Indian in a previous life, I could eat it 7 days a week and never tired of it, lol)
*Writing (it's both my creative and therapeutic outlet)
*New England (especially the Berkshires, the Cape, and Vermont)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything. My mind is rarely at rest.
On a typical Friday night I am
recouping and regrouping from the work week, watching Bill Maher @ 10pm, then doing some reading, writing, and talking online and by phone with fellow night-owl friends and relatives (and ones who live on the West Coast, ha ha).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I admitted it here, it wouldn't be private anymore, would it?
You should message me if're honest, honorable, genuine, and looking for something sincere and meaningful
The two of us
