My self-summary
Liberal non-religious sapiophile who voted for Obama twice and still "feels the Bern". If you haven't run away screaming yet, keep reading. ;-)

I'm a 53-year-old music professor, choral conductor, voice teacher, professional choral/opera singer, jazz trumpeter and pianist, composer. I'm a warm, caring, and passionate man, divorced for five years. I want to be able to give love, warmth, and affection to my partner in a relationship...and I want someone who cares about me just the way I am without trying to change me into someone I'm not.

I enjoy dining out, live music and theater, and intimate conversations. I'm a bit of an introvert but am very social and enjoy being around people. I am reserved at first but can be quite outgoing with people I'm comfortable around.

Smart is sexy! I'm attracted to women who are intelligent and not afraid to show it. I love profiles with complete sentences. :-)

I get lonely and am wanting someone who wants to spend time together. I've found that middle-aged single folks like the idea of dating and finding a relationship, but they've filled that void with work, kids, charities, causes, etc., and they're either not able or not willing to make time for someone. I enjoy kids, and I understand how work can tie up a lot of time. I know it's hard to make time for dating in a busy life. But if you can't figure out an average of one night a week or so to at least share a meal with me, your life is out of balance, and I wouldn't be interested..

I'm not your typical macho he-man who needs to be the head of everything...but I'm not a doormat either. I'm looking for someone with whom I can be an equal partner, with mutual respect and trust.

I'm very left wing and not religious. If you are a fundamentalist or voted for Trump, trust me, you won't be able to stand me, and vice versa. (If you voted for Trump, Google those last two words for a definition.)

Sex isn't the most important thing in a relationship, but it is important. Sexual compatibility is important, once we get to that point. I'm not looking for a "hookup"...that is quite frankly easy to find if that's all I wanted. I'm looking for someone with whom I can form a relationship.

I'm very open to dating someone with children, even small ones. However, I feel I'm too old to have new babies with someone. It wouldn't be fair to the baby.
What I’m doing with my life
Music is more than my's an integral part of my psyche. If classical music bores you to tears, pass me by for your own sake, because you won't be a happy camper for very long.
I’m really good at
Music, listening and being empathetic to other people.
The first things people usually notice about me
My shiny bald head. And the natural flat spot on the back of it, that I can balance a book on. No, I wasn't dropped on my head as a least I don't think so. ;)
Reserved but witty, intellectual, fun-loving, warm, caring.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: alternate history like Harry Turtledove. Also enjoy historical books about WWII
Movies: classic epics like Ben-Hur, sci-fi. Love Monty Python!
Shows: NCIS, Time Team, anything on the Hitler Channel (aka the History Channel), Game of Thrones, Man in the High Castle, SpongeBob Squarepants (best cartoon since Bugs Bunny).
Music: Classical, jazz, blues, classic rock. DESPISE hip-hop. If you're a hip-hop or rap fanatic, pass on by. Can deal with country in VERY small to dance to, annoying to listen to for very long. I enjoy bluegrass, however.
Food: Just about anything! I enjoy eating out as well as cooking. Chinese, Indian, Thai, barbecue, Vietnamese, German...all good!
Six things I could never do without
1. My son (22)...he's in law school in St. Louis, so I cherish every moment with him
2. Music
3. Barbecue ribs...the one delight that means I could never be a vegetarian.
4. Love
5. Friends
6. Air
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, feelings, wants, desires, politics.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with my son, chilling at home by myself with a beer or glass of wine, or doing something with friends. I sometimes go to the local karaoke bar and sing Sinatra.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not in a public forum. I'll tell you lots of private things once we get to know each other. :)
You should message me if
You're interested in chatting and finding out more about each other! I love meeting new people and making new friends, even if we're not romantically suited for each other.
The two of us
