I'm looking for a woman who wants to be in a relationship, is considerate of others, and reasonably responsible. If you're particularly religious, drink habitually, or smoke, probably not a good match.
I enjoy being in nature, playing non-violent sports like tennis, and I appreciate fine cuisine, music, and art. I have a dry and/or silly sense of humor, and can have a bit of an edge at times. Certainly more Jon Stewart than Vin Diesel. I might be more honest than most people, and sometimes have to remind myself to engage my filters, but I also need honesty in relationships.
I've been told that in person I look better than my photos (I was flattered, but not sure I believed it). Check out the photos' captions for a date stamp.
Other stuff: I enjoy singing and playing musical instruments, but only occasionally perform professionally. Sometimes watch TV. I still read books occasionally, and finish most of them eventually; although the more technology has crept into my life (I'm talking about you, iPad...and you, laptop...and now you, iPhone...), the less literature I consume.
My agnosticism and buddhist leanings belie my Jewish upbringing. I'm the child of a Holocaust survivor. I sometimes meditate at a Buddhist temple. NOT religious.
I have loved and been loved, yet sometimes love is not enough to make a relationship work. I am seeking the relationship that works.
One more thing...I haven't yet perfected a method of discerning compatible "chemistry" by reading anyone's self-description or analyzing a series of photos. Until then, meeting in person and spending some time together seems to be the best way to figure things out. (In other words, if we find each other interesting, please let's make a date.) I welcome any feedback.
Counseling and music. I help people learn, grow, and like themselves better. Then I try to do the same for myself. Oh yes, I'm also looking for an epic (or compatible) romantic relationship, and being part of a family.
OK something happened today I feel like sharing: the news headline read "Tyson Recalls Chicken Nuggets," and my brain processed this as Mike Tyson reminiscing about chicken nuggets.
