My self-summary
My name is Scott. I'm a reasonably Happy, Smart, Articulate, Witty, Successful, Hot guy. Oh, I'm Modest too ;-)

Seriously, I suck when it comes to trying to market myself in a context like this. Nevertheless, let me try and do my best to wow you.

I honestly feel that the only way to judge someone is to talk with them, preferably in person, over a cup of coffee, or better yet a glass of (good) red wine.

I'm prepared to invest the time and effort it takes to find the woman who will make my heart soar and the woman who I can make feel blissfully happy.

I'm divorced and have a Great 15 year old son who lives with me every other week. If this is a deal breaker for you, I'd rather have you say no thanks now than hide it at the end of my profile.

I am a 'Foodie' and a pretty decent chef. I love wine too (preferably red) and have a decent cellar at home with over 400 bottles on hand. I always try to have several interesting choices available :-) I enjoy hosting a dinner with good food & wine!

Confucius said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” I followed his advice! I'm a 'Recovering Attorney' and created a successful International Business Development practice which helps me travel a lot. I typically have two valid Passports so I'm always ready to pick up and go! The week of Thanksgiving I went to Paris, for 36 hours, with less than 48 hours notice. I probably would have stayed for the Holiday weekend if I had the right partner who was interested in meeting me there...

I Love to travel and have visited 6 of the 7 continents.

Well, if you got this far, you learned a fair amount about me. How do you feel about meeting for a cup of coffee, glass of (good) wine, or maybe even a dinner.

I really would like to learn what you feel about my offer...

We are both on this site to meet someone. Who knows, we may the next Match...

I look forward to hearing back from you.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to balance my work, co-raising my son, and trying to have fun.

I am professionally and financially secure. I'm not 'rich' but I'm comfortably successful.

Most importantly I'm happy with who and what I am. While I'm not perfect, and I constantly strive to be the best man that I can be, I am comfortable with the choices that I've made in life and I am basically happy.

Activities are obviously seasonal... In the Summer I love to go Tubing and swimming. Horseback riding can be fun, I have a good friend with a large Middleburg farm and he regularly invites me out to ride with him and his family. I'm not Great at it but it can be fun... I love winery tours and barrel tastings across NVA and finally I enjoy cooking a wine dinner for friends.

My list is not complete, because I wanted to leave room for your interests as well.

How do you feel about activities like the ones that I have suggested? Did anything inspire you???
I’m really good at
I'm Smart, Loyal and Focused.

I am not a Sports Fan.

I'm a Great Travel planner and I frequently help my friends organize their trips. I am really good at finding ways to get from here to there cost-effectively and in style...

I Love to cook and am a pretty decent chef. My presentation sometimes is lacking, but my food usually taste great :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm Tall. I am 6'1" and frequently wear cowboy boots when I dress up. The boots are a hold-over from a previous career and I like them.

I am quite willing to carve a unique path thru any obstacle. I am also quite self-assured, not arrogant, but self-confident. I disrespect people who think that they are 'better' than everyone else. But I have no problem speaking my mind, even if my opinions are not widely shared by others.

I applaud Kirk's solution to the Kobayashi Maru test... If you do not get this statement, you may not understand me...

Sometimes I wish I had a bigger Smile...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Have you ever 'Dined in the Dark'? I don't mean in a restaurant with dim romantic lighting, I mean in a restaurant that was completely dark, so dark that cellphones were banned and the waiters are blind... I have (4 times in 4 different cities) and it was a lot of fun.

I seek out the interesting and unusual opportunities in life.

I definitely create my own path in life.
Six things I could never do without
I'm a connected type of guy, so I am addicted to my Blackberry...

I also enjoy my creature comforts. While I don't mind flying to the end of the Earth to visit an exotic port and I am willing to endure a 18 hour flight to get there, I like to find a way to travel in style (Business Class or better). I'm pretty successful in getting up front when the flight is over 4 hours...

I guess that I really need stimulating conversation. I like smart, engaging people. I do not suffer fools, or pompous people easily.

I need 'Good Food' Sure I can eat a fast food burger if I'm starving, but I truly enjoy good food and wine and really enjoy good food. Good Food is like sunlight for me. I can endure the darkness for a while, but I really need to have good food on a regular basis. I'm more than willing to cook for myself if I can't find a good restaurant.

I really need my morning Newspaper with my Coffee & Chicory. I know that it is easier and more efficient to gather news on the Internet, but I truly enjoy reading a Paper Newspaper and drinking my NOLA Coffee.

The last item is a toss-up between to essential items in my life... Good Red Wine and Good Dark Chocolate. I really need a fix of both on a regular basis.

I'm a pretty giving person, and more than willing to share whatever I have with my partner...
I spend a lot of time thinking about

I enjoy reading Quotes and thinking about how relevant historic Quotes can be today!
On a typical Friday night I am
This is a difficult one for me, because my life does not fit any pattern.

I guess going out for dinner with some friends. I like to entertain, but I typically have dinner parties on Saturday nights, not Friday nights... If it's in the Fall (football season) I'm usually at my son's football game on Saturday evenings. He Loves football.

I'm self-employed so I might also be at my computer working on my latest deal. At the moment I'm working on a large, time-sensitive, transaction and I've been working 80 hours a week on it. However, this gives me the freedom to take off for a week and hit the beaches when I'm between transactions...

I guess the best answer is that 'It Depends'...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I promise to share at least one interesting story with you when we meet :-)
You should message me if
First of let me tell you who should NOT contact me...

If you are from Ghana, or someplace else outside the country and are looking for someone to invite you to the US, click to the next profile...

If you are 'selling something' in cyber space, I'm not looking for a cyber-gal for on-line web chats...

However, if you are a 'Real Woman' who is interested in meeting a honest and sincere guy with the potential to develop a long term relationship contact me.

I'm a lot of fun and I know how to treat a woman right. I've got the maturity, and the wherewithal, to be a very charming partner.

If you are willing to contact me, I promise to respond. I'm not promising a date, but I do promise that I will get back to you and from there we can see if we have Chemistry...

I sincerely do hope to hear from you :-)
The two of us
