10. Employed: At least for now; en route to wrapping up a fascinating yet unconventional career
9. Quick-witted: finds humor in adversity, dark situations, even politics (and these days, that's not easy!)
8. Self sufficient: Can feed, clothe, and clean up after myself
7. Presentable: Trim, healthy, well-spoken; no saggy pants, pocket pen holders, or Birkenstocks -- so go ahead and introduce me to your gang
6. Upbeat: positive, good-natured, and confident a committed intimate relationship is on the horizon
5. Communicative: Let's talk all night about anything you like. And when you're tired, we can be quiet
4. Proactive: happy to watch TV but I'll get us off the couch for a variety of activities, dining, the arts (esp live music), socializing, and your brand of fun
3. Smart: educated, well-read, creative; if we can't solve it readily, I can research it and think outside the box
2. Self-assured: not egocentric but make no apologies for who I am; we love better when we love ourselves
and the number one reason you say hello:
1. Passionate: about life, justice, the future, my gift, my grand-kids and family, and (hopefully) you!
MOVIES: indy to Hollywood, anything Rotten Tomatoes gives a fresh rating
MUSIC: still love the sixties and seventies but I enjoy almost anything musical . Nothing more fun than live music in venues of all sizes though I prefer smaller venues over stadiums.
SHOWS: quality TV from Breaking Bad to Mad Men to In Treatment, very open to new stuff
FOOD: generally Mediterranean diet, but love Italian and other ethnics. I'll always go off the wagon for a tasty experience.
