Some things about me of possible interest to you are:
-- I flunked out of college (how’s that for a way to start a profile?), but later returned to get a doctoral degree at Harvard Business School.
-- I've had a highly varied and rather successful career: taught at major universities, with General Motors I ran manufacturing plants, and did business deals in Europe, Japan, and China
-- When my I split with the mother of my two wonderful kids, they stayed with me. They were young teens. I ended up raising them on my own. I'm incredibly proud of them both, and we are all very close.
-- I'm physically active athletic and very fit: accomplished skier (snow and water), decent tennis player, shoot in the mid 80's (golf…but I'm not a country club guy), rock climber, certified scuba diver, aspiring kite boarder and surfer.
-- Reflective and introspective, I hope to become increasingly mindful/wise. I have studied Zen meditation and meditated with the monks at the Tengboche monastery at the foot of Mt Everest. A partner who appreciates these matters without being going over the edge into "woo-woo land" would be great.
-- I have a youthful sense of adventure and curiosity. I ride a motorcycle…but not recklessly. Love experiencing new forms of music, new cultures, new foods and wines. Love learning. new languages, new ideas.
-- Having fun in life is a priority. I'm a good cook, give one hell of a massage, throw a damn good party from time to time, and can hold my own on the dance floor.
--Doing some good in the world is also a priority. Looking for the right vehicle…perhaps consulting to help others, especially entrepreneurs achieve the success that I have been fortunate enough to realize. Or perhaps start a school that teaches kids what they really need to learn with enlightened teaching methods.
I like my own company and am very comfortable being alone. But my strong preference is to develop an deeply intimate relationship with an incredible woman who will become my best friend, my teacher, travel companion, and my life partner for the best part of my life which lies ahead.
My partner will have to be someone who shares my commitment to being active, fit and adventurous for the rest of our lives. I hold in my mind idea of developing together a like minded circle of friends with whom we water ski and/or hike up to Machu Picchu, play tennis, or bike through Tuscany. If you didn't enthusiastically say YES …I want THAT, then I'm not your guy. In addition, PLEASE BE: financially self sufficient, , sensual, and capable of a reasonably deep intellectual and/or philosophical conversation. If you are, and said YES….I'm looking for you…so please write YES….or if you prefer…ABSOLUTELY!
-- A youthful, fit body and mind are key priorities. You can still rock a size 6 (or even a 4).
-- Spontaneous, free-spirited, and uninhibited, you have a youthful sense of adventure.
-- You’re at once very classy and very sensual. You love giving and getting a massage. Seeing a Van Gogh can take your breath away. Great music affects you emotionally whether it’s Beethoven or the Beatles.
-- At your core a kind, generous person. Giving gives you pleasure.
-- Financially self-sufficient, you prefer to pay your own way in life…
-- Shopping is NOT one of your favorite things to do.
-- Social status is not what attracts you. Depth of character and intelligence does. Men that flaunt their "power thing" lack the quiet self confidence you seek in your partner.
