My self-summary
I prefer having fun to being too serious. Please remember that I'm open only to respectful gentlemanly behavior from someone who wants a real relationship with ongoing companionship at a minimum. If you date me, you might acquire at least one affectionate pet name :>). I love to laugh and will admire your imagination and sense of humor when they bring out my playfulness. There is a time to be serious, maybe once a year :>); other than that, let’s enjoy life dancing, attending cultural and athletic activities, etc. I hope you like my feminine but comfortable clothes, especially dancewear, mini-skirts, and anything pink, more than the usual old jeans :>). If you are one of the chivalrous, respectful gentlemen who fascinate me, on our dates I will enjoy being a lady even more than usual. Do you approve of my approaching everything in life creatively? In addition to being a writer with visual arts experience, I fondly remember serving as Executive Producer, Production Designer, and Costumer on an indie narrative feature movie. Directing and choreographing the 60’s flashback dance scene was unforgettable. Though not religious, I consider myself spiritual. My friends give me an A+ in caring and compassion, but I guess everyone’s friends are the same :>). I will admire your muscles and skills if you are a generous handy gentleman who likes to fix things and help on projects :>). Secret shortcut to winning my affections: take me ballroom dancing often! Eating healthfully and staying trim and fit head my priority list. I am into holistic health. In addition to ballroom dancing, Argentine Tango, salsa or swing, let's share some of my varied interests: City Races, skyscraper stair climbing races, urban stair hikes, walking at the beach or at botanical gardens, and attending football games; musical events such as Hollywood Bowl and Disney Hall concerts; nature pursuits including bird watching, photography, animal sanctuaries, and succulent gardening; art exhibits and architecture tours; opera, ballet, and foreign movies; and pastimes like pool, Ping Pong, and the board games Blokus and Palabra.
What I’m doing with my life
My education includes a master's degree in clinical psychology with a specialization in mind-body interaction, nutrition, and fitness. While I occasionally accept clients for health coaching/counseling, my priority is writing the sequel to my just-published Roman a clef.
I’m really good at
1. Being imaginative, honest, playful, perceptive, and a fun companion.
2. Staying fit with daily exercise: various types of PACE cardio including jogging, gym weight training thrice weekly, & walking as much as possible.
3. Experiencing continual computer problems which result in frequent online dates with smart young nerds at the Geek Squad :>).
The first things people usually notice about me
People tell me they notice my smile, slim figure, and kind sparkling eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some favorite writers include George Eliot, Edith Wharton, Anthony Trollope, Henry James, Jane Austen, Gina Nahai, Walter Mosley, Amy Tan, Terry McMillan, Shirley MacLaine, E. Tolle, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Janet Evanovich, Jorge Amado, Tolstoy, etc.

I prefer foreign, subtitled movies.

I love vocal jazz and rhythm & blues vocal music, as well as classical music and opera.

I eat mainly organic, strictly healthful food and hope to find a man who eats similarly without processed foods, sugar, soda, etc.
Six things I could never do without
Fun, friends, love, varied activities, healthful food, & exercise
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Gentlemen, the book I'm writing, fun plans, social activities, self-development, did I say gentlemen :>)?
On a typical Friday night I am
Socializing or dancing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a member of Mensa who is too unconventional to follow the crowd.
You should message me if
ONLY if you are a very smart LOCAL respectful gentleman. You like to tango or ballroom dance or do swing, salsa, etc. You have diverse creative, athletic, and intellectual interests we can share. Like me, you enjoy learning new things and are into personal growth. You love yourself enough to stay trim, eat only healthful food, and exercise frequently. You earn my admiration and respect by being patient, communicative, a good listener, and fair and adept in resolving differences. Fun to be with, you wisely recognize that it takes time to know each other and to maintain a happy relationship. Friends first makes sense to you. You avoid rushing anything and share my feeling that sensuality is an expression of love, rather than a recreational activity. You want a committed life partner who is your best friend and lover, there for you through life’s joys and challenges. Please remember to avoid writing until your weight is optimal, until you live in the L.A. Metropolitan area, and until you are ready for companionship and possible love, rather than hookups! Thank you!
The two of us
