My self-summary
Bright, caring, SWPM with eclectic interests desires bright, caring SWPF for fun and more, and hopefully a long-term relationship. I like dinner and shows, but especially quiet time getting to know each other. Most joy in life comes from the simplest things and building special relationships along the way. I really want a companion, partner, and soul mate, who will be as caring, committed, loyal, and loving to me as I am to her. Maybe I am at the point in my life where I have more questions than answers. Maybe you are too. Maybe we can find them together!

P.S. Just getting together for fun times isn't bad either, and a great place to start!
What I’m doing with my life
Helping my sisters and family and friends; trying to do excellent work at my job to help my clients; pursuing some of my personal interests in my spare time; and trying to find you!
I’m really good at
(Joke) creative self-delusion. You know: Thinking that I am important, or my job or some task is important or matters, etc. It can be great motivational device to help me focus and get something done.

Seriously though, I am good at bringing a lot of focus and energy to things that are important to me, including helping my family and friends, my job, and being a good partner in a relationship.
The first things people usually notice about me
My read hair and beard (during the last two years), and that I am a reasonably bright and reasonably reasonable guy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like jazz, rock and some folk music, and have been to concerts by Stan Kenton, Maynard Ferguson, George Benson, Elton John, Aerosmith, Heart, Yes, Pink Floyd and others, and would like to do more. I am a guy and I like action and adventure movies, and also like dramas, science fiction, epics and some fantasy movies. I think Titanic, Pearl Harbor, Kingdom of Heaven, and Last of the Mohicans are terrific. TV series can be better than many movies since they have time for plot and character development and are not constrained to fit in a two hour window. I enjoyed musicals including West Side Story and Wicked. In terms of books, I read a lot at my work, so I don;t do as much recreational reading as I would like, so right now I am better at buying and collecting them than reading them.
The six things I could never do without
The words "never" and "always", since they are never true and there are always exceptions or special circumstances.

Seriously, here are some of the things I like:
1. getting together with family and friends for the holidays, special occasions or otherwise;
2. playing chess and Scrabble and other board games;
3. reading science fiction, fiction, history or other subjects;
4. learning -- lots of people and places and things fascinate me;
5. travel, I have traveled some throughout the U.S. (Florida and San Diego are nice, but so are local trips like to French Lick IN and the Wes Baden Springs Hotel for a romantic weekend Look it up on the internet!]) and to England, Vancouver, the Bahamas and Puerto Rico (some great food there!), and hope to do more; and
6. work, and feeling like I have accomplished something and been useful.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
future events, philosophy, current events and politics, economics, religion, science, psychology, family issues, and other matters. I have broad and eclectic interests and am intellectually curious and open-minded.
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking my sister and 2-1/2 year old nephew out to dinner; going out to dinner or to a movie or a show or watching sports with friends; or relaxing after a busy week at home. I don't go out on that many dates and would like to do more, and find someone special to build a lasting relationship with. I think it is through our relationships that our lives often have their greatest meaning and purpose.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In this public forum is that I turned down an internship with NASA for one in banking. It may have been a bad career move, but I did it to be near my parents, who both had health problems, and to help them and I would do it again. Besides, I can try to tell myself that NASA, during the misbegotten space shuttle era, was probably a miserable bureaucracy to work for anyway. There is probably some truth in that.
You should message me if
You have asked yourself "Where are all of the nice guys?" You be the judge: I am not perfect, but I think I qualify. You probably can't tell by reading my profile, but if you get to know me, I think you will find that this is true.
