I will not see you if you "like" me so best to write if you want to make a connection.
I'm an engaging, cerebral and independent thinker but passionate and witty with a warm smile, laid-back nature and a developed banter package. I live a somewhat healthy lifestyle but by no means obsessive. I am self-employed and have a flexible schedule. Divorced with two teenage boys, accomplished in the kitchen and I keep my home clean and tidy.
I live in Schaumburg for the sake of my boys' schooling but am not of the suburban mindset.
Messaging exchanges/texting as a precursor is not an indicator of chemistry. I prefer to migrate to a chat on the phone and possibly meeting sooner rather than later.
Growing my business.
In my work: Marketing - negotiating - selling.
WBEZ listener, mostly watch British TV content, Stewart Lee is my favorite comedian and I have a preference for satirical comedy. I binge-watch UK/European/US drama series on occasion. The usual Wire, Sopranos, Veep and Breaking Bad staples.
Music: Broad tastes - anything that is good from the Sex Pistols, The Stranglers and Two Tone to Beethoven's 9th and Bach's (genius) Prelude No.1 in C Major and much in between.
Most ethnic foods and classic cuisines - Indian is a favorite but anything simple, fresh, well-conceived and well-prepared can be a treat.
Herbs and spices
The joy of human contact
How Western societal courtship rituals starkly contradict nature.
...you have read through the explanations to my question answers and think our interests may converge
...you are open minded and maybe have non "vanilla" appetites
...you are smart, funny and possess empathy
...you are in proportion, slim, fit or athletic or taking steps to be
...your photos accurately depict you.
...you like what you see and want to know more.
We'll "NOT" be a good match if you are overly materialistic, a self acknowledged fiercely independent/"busy" type, you fly sports regalia/flags from your vehicle, identify heavily with a sports team or have, "Go-Bears" or similar statements in your profile. Playing a sport by contrast is commendable.
For ladies in the city, travelling to the north, northwest and west side is not an issue.
