My self-summary
How are you? I am well. Thanks for asking. First off I have to say I admire you for being here online searching for someone nice to be with. It isn’t an easy process - a lot of rejection taken and given. And here we are.
What I’m doing with my life
But where are you from? I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma, and although I left there years ago, I still have the core concepts, the basic values. On the continuum from astrology to science, I am far to the science side.
I’m really good at
I like things that make logical sense. I like evidence. And this is true even though I have a little musical talent, and count myself as a true romantic.

I am romantic enough to maintain the singer-songwriter act I started undergrad at Stanford and to have bold plans to compile, record and perform my forty best songs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I believe in my work as a lawyer, too. It sustains me, and not just financially. I get a lot out of it, and I love the people I work with in a small plaintiff personal injury firm in downtown Oakland.

I live in Oakland, too, in the wonderful Rockridge Neighborhood. Where do you live?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Along with my work on the law, I have also done a fair amount of work on myself. So I hope you are introspective or at least have a positive impression of therapy.
The six things I could never do without
I go to movies a lot, and some recent favorites are “Birdman”, “Boyhood” and “The Silver Linings Playbook”. I don’t like animation, special effects or heavy gunfire. My favorite actors are Russell Crowe and Tilda Swinton. What have you seen lately that you liked?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have strong feelings about music - if I like a song I get goosebumps all over and my veins feel shot full of creme de menthe. I love REM, the Byrds, the Dead and Led Zeppelin.
On a typical Friday night I am
I believe relationships are all about talk, and I like meeting a woman where it seems we could talk for hours without much effort. But I don’t like small talk. I am present, a good listener, engaging and direct. How about you?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to meet a woman who knows how to work through the conflicts that inevitably arise in a good relationship - a woman who can talk about what is happening in the relationship, what is happening in the moment.
You should message me if
I hope you haven’t lost your capacity to think critically, or your sense of humor, if that makes sense. I do not see the world from an Eastern, Zen-like perspective. I like the great books of Western Civilization. I like Shakespeare.

Again, good for you for being out here, looking online - it ain’t easy. If you think we might possibly connect, please get in touch. We can talk a bit by phone and then go for coffee or a drink. Thanks, and I look forward to meeting you soon.

James
