My self-summary
Balance is a key quality in my life as symbolized by the yin/yang of Taoism. As such, I span a broad range, and I'd prefer someone who understands that most things can be appropriate at different times.

I describe myself as adventurous and romantic, strong and gentle, playful, fun and mature, spiritual, fit, and a nonsmoker. I'm fairly deep, intelligent, observant, reflective, and have both a high IQ and EQ.

I like to do lots of different things: wine and dining, exploring and day trips, hiking, sailing, movies, window shopping, fairs, antiquing, social cooking, snuggling, kissing--sharing life with one special person!

One final note, I've always had a baby face and a youthful demeanor so I am looking for someone younger, vibrant, and healthy that will accept me now at age 56. This is the only thing that I've 'adjusted' here in all my copious sharing. I want you to know as much as possible about me to make a reasonable judgment but I also needed you to find me in your search!
What I’m doing with my life
I love to explore, visit, day trips to find a new gastro pub, even window shop new places. I like to go out to dinner at least one night per week and then some event or activity every other weekend such as to visit Baltimore, Annapolis, or Alexandria. I love movies, so I'll watch a couple per week--subscriber of Netflix. I am gainfully employed and also own a small startup company online. I work a regular 8-4:30/weekdays.
I’m really good at
- seeing all sides of a debate;
- blending in diverse settings;
- learning anything by watching someone do it;
- getting to the true essence of a person and understanding their view;
- helping to solve problems and optimize;
- avoiding things I have to do :)
- lightening up (balancing) intense moments;
- connecting very deeply with one special person;
- committing to one special person!
The first things people usually notice about me
glasses, smile, nice guy, takes a minute to warm up then also funny, clever, insightful, and deep.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Music: alternative, new age, techo/house/electronica, rock, classical, jazz, salsa--Delerium, Enigma, Gotan Project, Jean-Michel Jarre, Moby, NIN, Pink Floyd, Tori Amos...(too many to mention) Sometimes I crank up 'house' music, so I guess I have to say that's my fav.

if I had to pick my ultimate metaphor for who I am and what I'm seeking, it would be When Harry Met Sally for its humor, wit, insight, and ultimate love and friendship.

Six things I could never do without
1> family&friends; b) good health; III] the internet; air; sex(really, physical intimacy). GPS

On the other hand, things I could do without!! Brussel sprouts, gin, retsina wine, slasher movies, smoking, and lawn ornaments.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
gravity. literally!
On a typical Friday night I am
@home cooking/watching a movie. I have to admit--I'm not a fan of standing in lines; why not go out on a Tuesday or Thursday and get right in?!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I actually had cat scratch fever once; it wasn't really much of anything--just swollen glands and it passed in a few days (many years ago!!)
You should message me if
My Perfect Match will be ...
- Warm, playful, affectionate, responsible, savvy, spiritual, adventurous, youthful, and attractive (to my eyes);
- Loves to travel/explore, wine/dine, appreciates culture, and many many other things. My ideal is to take turns choosing/planning things to do because we both love trying/doing new/different things;
- Cares to be healthy in all of mind, body, and spirit (not just a slogan - must not smoke, must exercise regularly). Calling yourself slender or athletic when you haven't been in 10 years or smoked all your life are a huge turn off sorry.
- A natural beauty, a great smile, and a long dark mane (as long as I'm idealizing :)
- Doesn't want or already has older children
