My self-summary
I'm a single man looking for a long-term relationship - a very sincere guy trying to find true love. My friends describe me as kind-hearted and sensitive, honest, smart and talented, and my enemies probably describe me much the same way, lol! When you meet someone and you both are attracted to one another, have similar values and attitudes about life, you laugh a lot together, the talking comes easily and naturally, and it feels as if for some odd yet wonderful reason you are with someone whom you've known for a long time, it's a really good feeling. And I have hope that such a beginning will someday lay the foundation for a lifetime love. And this is what I am searching for . . . my best friend. When we find each other, I'm hoping to build a life with her and spend the rest of our lives creating memories together through all the good times and the bad. It's very meaningful to be able to share your life with someone whom you love, admire and respect, and who feels the same way about you.
I like to think I have some good things to offer; I own my own home, am financially stable, and family is very important to me. I am an extremely giving and generous person, and have very close friends who have been a part of my life for a long time. I value humor so much, and enjoy creating silly and fun conversation. I work as a professional pianist and music teacher, and I appreciate my work very much. I have a huge passion for music, and I love sharing it with others. I also like to collect books, and have quite the collection at my home . . . my taste in books tends towards fiction, psychology, music, physics and spirituality, history and biographies.
Though I truly enjoy going out, home to me is very important as well, and I take much pride in it by taking good care of it. My home has a lot of old world charm, the decor is very traditional, and I enjoy collecting antiques. Though I have no pets currently, I love animals a lot and have had pets during most of my life. I enjoy attending cultural events: I have season tickets to The Fox Theatre and The Symphony. I also like The Muny and attending jazz concerts, going to park (we have many beautiful ones!), the movies, museums. I love dining out and going to the wineries in the fall (my favorite time of year), and I enjoy traveling. It would be nice to find someone to travel with and create new adventures and memories with. I do look younger than I am, most people say ten or more years younger. I'm looking for a woman who is sensitive and sweet, openhearted, compassionate, and fun to be with. It would be great to find someone who is looking for what I'm looking for . . . where we both want the same things from each other and out of life, and are supportive of each others goals and want the best for each other. Though I have none of my own, I really like children, and am open to dating someone with children or maybe having my own with the right gal. I'm the kind of man who is very grateful for all the good things in life that I have, and I have many blessings to be thankful for, but there is one thing missing, and that is a special person to love. Why not share the adventure as two, not one? So go ahead ;-) . . . take a chance and write me . . .

When I’m not playing music, I love going to see other art forms, whether that’s a show at The Fox, a concert at Powell Hall or Jazz at the Bistro, or an exhibit at the art museum. I enjoy card games with friends, an afternoon in the park or a day spent swimming, boating or playing tennis.
