My self-summary
I am a warm, grounded, funny (to most, not everyone), caring, fairly intuitive person who takes a deep interest in the needs and thoughts of my friends and family.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a very good life and a wonderful adult daughter who lives in the city and with whom I have a re-blossoming relationship. I work hard as a financial advisor and am looking to find a the right person to be my partner and share all the good things the life has to offer.

I made a New Year's Resolution this year that I actually kept -- to get out of my comfort zone and try something totally new and different. The result: I decided to try my hand at comedy writing and took an 8-week course at Second City, me and a bunch of Twentysomethings. I liked it so much, I took another, then four more. The result is we wrote a comedy revue that will run 4 Fridays in January. Jokes, sketches, music, nudity (not). It's amazing how hard writing comedy is, and I'm amazed I did this.
I’m really good at
Understanding other people's needs and problems. Writing, communicating. Loyalty. People trust me ... and with good reason. People tell me I'm comfortable to be with, and that's what I look for in a partner. I'm a very good, try-anything cook. But I haven't had a foodie to cook for in a while. Also the NYT crossword puzzle, which I do every day. Trying the guitar.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea. You tell me when we meet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by Michael Chabon and Robert Littell. 11/22/63 by Stephen King (my first King novel). I like the Bourne movies, but not so much the non-Matt-Damon one. I saw most of the Oscar Nominees this year and particularly liked Argo and Amour. Old movies: anything from Bogart post 1940. I love Indian and MidEastern food. Also Mexican/South American. Also French, but I have to admit to a weakkness for smokehouse BBQ.
The six things I could never do without
Travel, friends, daughter. Have to think some more on this one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Lots, but not here.
