My self-summary
Successful, dynamic, romantic and active!

I'm a smart, creative, literary, fun-loving man looking to connect with intelligent vibrant women 45-65 or so, with whom I share values, interests, fun times and activities.

I'm a war veteran and a survivor of 9/11 in lower Manhattan. As such, I'm an empathetic, down-to-earth, sincere, masculine type of guy with a good sense of humor.

Physical fitness is important to me.

Not looking for marriage. However, I'm interested mainly in a meaningful, long term relationship. New friends are always welcome.

So there won't be any misunderstanding, I've been in a long term relationship with a woman in Ireland for 8 years. We see each other about 10 weeks a year. We are both dating others for the past year.
What I’m doing with my life
I am in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry.

My story is strange, in a way, because in addition to a business career, I also have a MFA in creative writing. Working on a novel and have published a lot of scholarly nonfiction.

The six things I could never do without
Good food and wine, getting out in nature, the time to sit and write
I spend a lot of time thinking about
La condition humaine.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to find a good place to go and the right people to go out with to have some fun. Either that or a good dinner and movie or cultural event.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmmmmm....
You should message me if
If you think we might be able to enjoy each other's company, sharing laughs, adventure and quiet times.

If you're an adventurer.
