My self-summary
Searching for my partner in crime. Should be fluent in honesty and affection. Adult language and nudity may be required.

I have a very dry and sometimes strange sense of humor (if it wasn't already obvious).

THINGS ABOUT ME
*Myers-Briggs Type Indicator = INTJ "The Mastermind" (I've been told by women I shouldn't mention this)
*Enneagram Type Indicator = Four with a Five-Wing: "The Bohemian"
*For a straight guy I have incredible taste
*I can be moved to tears by art and music
*I never wear a watch
*I love fine tequila, English mustard and bittersweet chocolate (but not all together)
*I named my cat after my favorite sushi chef
*I’m a night owl
*I composed and invented the start up sound on your Macintosh...yup, that was me (somewhat) famous I guess...I was featured in a movie they made about it (No, not "Revenge of the Nerds")
*I'm learning how to play golf
* I play the piano (have a grand) and am also a photographer

WHAT I FEEL
*A woman who's confident enough to wear a good hat is sexy (baseball caps are not hats)
*It’s important to have your clothes tailored
*Take your own path (unless navigating a minefield)
*The truth is more compelling than fiction
*The best vacations are near warm waters and something ancient. (hopefully not your partner)
*Every culture has wonderful gifts
*Keep your heart and mind open
*Integrity, growth, and being supportive are key elements in any successful relationship
*The ideal date is where we are so engaged in getting to know each another we forget about the time and place

IDEAL WOMAN
*I love a creative and unique woman with a gentle sense of herself and a kind heart
*A cat person and a night owl would be wonderful
*A woman, like me, who gets excited about learning, because that's how we stay young
*She understands there are many answers to the same question
*She is silly enough to laugh at ourselves and remind us not to take things too seriously
*The world is a big place and she should share my dream of exploring
*She is my "last first date"
What I’m doing with my life
searching for someone to share life with, maybe for a short while but hopefully much longer
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
eye lashes, mellow, dry sense of humor, brilliant (my dad tells me that all the time - he calls me sun)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
thinking
On a typical Friday night I am
making the best cocktail ever
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
trying to meet someone on-line has never worked for me, so why do I keep at it?
You should message me if
You are looking to build a relationship based on integrity, chemistry, and life-long learning. A witty intellect and a deep sensuality. A sexy IQ/waist ratio. Communicates honestly and openly what you are thinking and feeling. Likes independent films. Loves food. Curious enough to experience new things two or three times. Laughs so hard a beverage may shoot out your nose. Enjoys a comfortable silence. Has a unique sense of style and not part of the cookie cutter standard. That devilish grin that says everything without words.
