My self-summary
It's tough to be humble while promoting myself as witty, cultured and accomplished (lol), but that's just how it is. Among other things, I've been told that I'm a hopeless romantic, so I'm here seeking that one outstanding woman to help bring me to a higher level of happiness. My character is friendly, easy going, humorous and playful; my nature is caring, curious, empathetic, loyal and sensitive; and my instincts are attentive, adventurous, creative, intuitive. I'm an out-of-the-cube thinker who is passionate about those special things I choose to pursue.

I like to focus my energy, creativity, and curiosity on new (and old) challenges, people and experiences. I feel fortunate to have had lots of opportunities so far for professional fulfillment, travel, the joys of being a parent and a friend. I'm hoping for more of the same in the next chapter of my life.

I am worldly, warm, creative, and passionate about many things, causes, people.

I'm a coach and a mentor, a believer in the potential of people, an avid reader, a lover of nature and a lifelong learner. I value sensuality, harmony and close relationships. I have many interests and seeking a special woman with whom to share them, a woman who will be my best friend, trusted partner and committed lover. As a true romantic, I believe in nurturing and cultivating the emotional, intellectual and physical intimacy of a loving relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Our world is dynamic and our brains need good quality information. As learning doesn't end when our schooling does, I enjoy PBS, Discovery, History and the Science channels along with some mind-numbing commercial television when I'm just chilling.
I’m really good at
Helping people feel at ease, actively listening to them and their issues, eliciting their thoughts and feelings and helping them to untangle knots...bottom line - compromise and collaboration. My friends say I'm loyal and committed to people and social causes because I like participating in community based social and cultural activities. I'm also a pretty good photographer (both freelance and for personal interest).
The first things people usually notice about me
Women often comment about my misty blue eyes, wavy platinum hair and sincere smile but it's usually my friendliness and personality that grabs their interest. And in short time they discover my intelligence, quick wit, excitement, passion and unadulterated humbleness; fortunately, men usually don't comment whatsoever.
Speaking of that, I've hesitated posting a photo because my children and their friends use this site and might wander upon my profile and my personal thoughts. I hope you understand my privacy concerns.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a chronic NPR fan yet enjoy soft jazz, moody blues, classic rock, oldies, big bands, Cajun, new wave and classics (all preferably live), almost anything but (c)rap, country and opera. I read newspapers and enjoy historical and political books and like the distraction of fiction by Michael Crighton and John Grisham. No matter the author, I love our language, especially words that are diverse, multi-meaning and obscure, and cause the brain to explore divergent paths of thoughts and ideas, always seeking something new and stimulating.

I enjoy walking along the ocean, river and parks, farmers' markets, festivals, gardening, concerts, craft shows and flea markets. I like a variety of movie genres, including comedies, romance, action and thrillers but I relish the old B&W movies from the 30s-60s featuring Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable and Humphrey Bogart, or anything directed by Alfred Hitchcock. And whenever possible, I get to musicals and other performances around town.
Six things I could never do without
Let's see -
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...what really matters in life, appreciating what I have, enjoying the journey and not focusing on the little issues or the destination. Of course, my childrens' welfare is always on my mind.

BTW, the sexiest thing in the entire world is intelligence, being thoughtful, being honest and being generous to the less fortunate.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have a typical Friday night (or any day), because each is a new day to explore, enjoy and treasure. But a good fish fry and a couple Coronas (with lime) is always enjoyed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a contemporary thinker with an old-fashioned mindset who's embarrassed to admit I'm using an online dating site.
You should message me if
...you own a playful mind and are looking for new adventures (with a little mayhem) while making some great memories. What's more, please don't expect romance from someone who treats a date as if it were a job interview. It may be the new norm to expedite "qualifying" someone, but "getting acquainted" is how people really get to know each another, and maybe fall in love...
The two of us
