My self-summary
You may be wondering why at 49, I have not yet been married. Well, I’ll tell you. I’m a romantic and I’ve been waiting for the right woman for me. I hope that she’s somewhere on OkCupid!
Life takes you on a ride that you could never anticipate. Although I thought that I wanted to pursue math as a career, music has always been a part of me, and that’s how I make my living. I may not be the boldest voice in any room, but I will be the most thoughtful. I had a wonderful relationship with my parents and cared for both of them until they passed, both within the last five years. I feel lucky to have known both of them. Now I would love to find the connection that they had with a great lady of my own.
I truly get a great deal of pleasure out of making the people I care about happy. I’m a sensitive, empathetic person, not a pushover but someone that willingly puts himself in others’ shoes. I have a huge amount of respect for women and love to play the romantic lead. I’m playful and funny, easy to communicate with and hey, I’m a jazz musician. I know how to improvise!
I’m looking for someone that is beautiful inside and out. She should have a kind heart, a compassionate spirit and inner class. A great sense of humor is essential and sarcasm doesn’t count. I want someone that can be unabashedly silly, goofy and whimsical when the time is right. I am open to dating someone with kids or starting a family with the right person. I enjoy people with positive attitudes. Let’s take the leap and see what kind of wonderful we can land in!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Just where is she? And how do I get myself to least expect it?
On a typical Friday night I am
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.
You should message me if
You have exquisite taste in men! Lol
