My self-summary
I am interested in getting to know someone who is authentic, kind, patient, warm, interested in delving below the surface and willing to put in the work that a great relationship needs.

I like the art of conversation; like to read things that are well-written; and like to watch stuff that makes me feel something. Easy to talk to, down to earth, sometimes blunt, kind-hearted, open-minded, introspective, emotionally intelligent, prefers small pleasures, altruistic, empathetic, non materialistic, quirky, eccentric, focused but fun-loving, prefer quality over quantity and substance over style (well a bit of style won't hurt), a bit reserved but warms up quickly.

My sense of humor leans more toward the dry-witted side. Eclectic tastes in movies, music, art and books. Likes fitness, different cultures and have a plethora of other interests that you'll find out about once we get to know each other. By no means perfect, definitely a work-in-progress.
What I’m doing with my life
At the end of the day, trying to improve the quality of it...helping others do the same when and if I can...trying to find pockets of happiness
I’m really good at
Things that'll probably make you blush...ok kidding..but seriously, active listening, giving sound advice, helping others, not being myopic, making someone feel like they don't have to be anyone else but themselves...being kind
The first things people usually notice about me
That I have a serious accent...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll just list a few.
Books: Love in the time of cholera; One hundred years of solitude; Killing Johnny Fry; To kill a mockingbird; Kite runner; A thousand splendid suns; And the mountains echoed...
Shows: I don't watch a lot of tv, but if I do shows like Seinfeld; Frasier; Mad Men; Scandal; The Daily Show; Big Bang Theory; Modern Family; Curb your enthusiasm; Walking Dead; HGTV; BBC
Music: A little of everything from most genres...from Debussy to Drake...good music is good music, however I do lean more heavily toward alternative/indie music and oldies...
Food: A little of everything once it's palette-pleasing...Thai & Italian are high on the list.
Movies: Coen Bros; Scorsese; Woody Allen; Wes goes on...Psychological thrillers, some comedies, mostly foreign films, independent movies, and stuff off the beaten path.
Six things I could never do without
Meaningful conversation...humor/wit...mental stimulation...true friendships...genuineness in people...kindness...apparently, the random use of ellipses...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'd spend lottery winnings, then I remember I actually have to play to win...what comes next in my life...meeting that special person...quality of life...travelling...helping others...having adventures and creating great memories...having a meaningful life
On a typical Friday night I am really depends...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Won't be private if I'm willing to admit it
You should message me if
...if you're looking for a relationship that would lead to something serious...if some of what I wrote resonates with you in some way...if you genuinely have some of the qualities I mentioned in my self-summary...if you are emotionally intelligent and communicate well...that'll be a good place to start.
I know it's hard to put into words what one looks for in a person without doing the generic laundry list. That said, I'm going to try this approach: whomever "they" are, always say, you'll know when you find him. I know I will. It has to do with the entire package, our attraction, how we communicate, our values and that je ne sais quoi.
We'll both know because we'd be consistent, committed and genuinely interested in wanting to get to know each sharing details of our past, present and'll seem effortless...and we'll both be looking forward to it.
The two of us
