My self-summary
Good man, earning lots of mensch points. Graduate Hospital. Loud. Fast talker. Very decisive. Sometimes polarizing. Direct, demanding, and dauntless. Can sell ice to an eskimo.

Looking for a nice girl who will laugh at my jokes, have dinner with me every so often and tolerate being my plus one to the occasional cocktail party / fundraiser / award party / socialite nonsense

And probably dance with me. I know -- I ask too much.

UPDATE: I have come to realize that what I am seeking is occasional or rather, understanding, companionship. I lead a very busy, very engaged, and very career-driven life that has (unfortunately) hurt a lot of my attempts at relationships with some incredible individuals due to how tunnel vision-y I can be when I am focused on something. It would be great to meet an independent-minded person that wouldn't mind the occasional date, dance, event, or let me make you dinner. While in the (hopefully near) future I would like to marry and raise several terribly smart-assed, knuckle-headed and brilliant Jewish children, I am not entirely certain my path will get there in the next 6 to 36 months. But, anything is possible.

I like several things that you like and I like several things that either you dislike or are ambivalent about.

Big words
Small words

I spend a lot of time thinking about
"If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place."
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to convince myself to resist the urge to adopt a dog.
