My self-summary
Quietly confident, masculine and evolved English guy seeks an intelligent, open-minded, attractive non-vanilla lady with a sense of humor.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Taking deep breaths at times with my teenagers.
Growing my business.
I’m really good at
Humor - pragmatism - cooking - photography - using my hands - questioning the reported word and remaining unjaded with online dating - I still retain optimism in this respect.

In my work: Marketing - negotiating - selling.
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
From Christopher Hitchens to Bill Bryson. Movies from "Brief Encounter" to "A Clockwork Orange". David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick.

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.
Six things I could never do without
My friends and kids are a given
British TV
Herbs and spices
The joy of human contact
Wine again
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Women who look great in their jeans.
How Western societal courtship rituals starkly contradict nature.
On a typical Friday night I am
I have no "typical" Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am open to any question you like on a one to one basis.
You should message me if
THESE ARE "NOT" ALL REQUIREMENTS BUT IF.. have read through the explanations to my question answers and think our interests may converge are open minded and maybe have non "vanilla" appetites are smart, funny and possess empathy are in proportion, slim, fit or athletic or taking steps to be
...your photos accurately depict 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.
The two of us
