My self-summary
I consider myself to be somewhat of a paradox...very much down to earth, easygoing, witty, sharp, and funny as hell (but I'll let you decide); love to get really silly at times. But I can be serious and also have a sensitive side. I have the innate ability to think, feel, care, and love very deeply.

Above all else, I value intelligence, honesty, beauty (both internal and external), integrity, keen sense of humor, quick wit, passion, and loyalty in a possible mate. I'd describe myself as having the same characteristics as above.

Worked hard my entire life and became quite successful and financially stable...very recently gave up the 9-5 rat race from media/ advertising / publishing business...used to commute and wear a suit and tie every work day for 33 years and now I don't have to!! - it is awesome...one of my passions now is studying and investing in the financial markets...I am also doing some volunteer work at a soup kitchen in downtown Baltimore.

Had a life-changing experience in 1992 when we adopted a beautiful 1 year old boy from Peru. He's now 25 and I'm so proud of the young man he's grown up to be.

I love rock music (mostly late 60's and 70's, (I know, still stuck in my musical time warp)). Huge Ravens, O's, Terps fan. Recently discovered the joys of crossword puzzles; really keeps my mind sharp and I complete (usually) two per day.

I am very much grounded and ready to see what the next phase of life brings...eager to enjoy the company of a wonderful woman to share with me all that is good, fun, and meaningful in this world.

I'm looking for someone who GETS ME and understands me and, of course, vice versa.
What I’m doing with my life
see above
I’m really good at
I have the ability to give of myself 100% in something/anything that I feel is important, e. g., a relationship; loving my mate in every possible way and making her feel like the most important and special person on Earth, intelligent conversation, keeping the people around me smiling, laughing, and happy, cooking and grilling, making the people that I care about feel loved and comfortable, useless trivia, taking care of business, somewhat of a financial whiz, etc.
The first things people usually notice about me
my intelligence and/or sense of humor
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
sports as shown above; Curb Your Enthus., The Big Bang Theory, Seinfeld (still!), CNBC, good movies from ones that make you think and feel to silly ones; [e. g. Goodfellas, Annie Hall, Pulp Fiction, West Side Story, Fargo, Caddyshack, Superbad]; music (mostly classic rock)...I read The Sun every day and am subscribed to many financial newsletters which I read voraciously (novels, not so much, although I do appreciate the classics).
Six things I could never do without
the love and companionship of a great woman, my son, family, my dogs, music, dark-roast coffee, following my favorite sports teams (Ravens, Orioles, Terps, Caps)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
life, present and future
On a typical Friday night I am
up for anything
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
ask me privately :)
You should message me if
...you want to meet a warm, caring, fun guy who will keep you laughing and who will also challenge you intellectually.
The two of us
