To save your time, I should come right out and...

In his own words

To save your time, I should come right out and admit that I'm not a football/ baseball/ basketball fan; no rock/pop/country either; not even much of a jazz fan (though I used to be). I realize this may sound snotty. I regret that: I'm not like that, but it's important for me to be honest and upfront. Now, if you're still reading: I am a great believer in the transcendent wondrousness of life in the real world, without resort to delusion or daydreaming. That's why I named my daughter (the equivalent of) Wonder. I'm for neither frills nor fancy nor stuffiness, and all for quality, substance and integrity. I value aesthetics, in both the abstract and mundane. I appreciate the pleasures of the mind- and the body and senses too. I don't appreciate materialism, the delusion of religion or the violence of sports like American football (I like soccer though). I am somewhat of an introvert, preferring one-on-one or small gatherings to larger ones. I'm not big on dancing or smalltalk. Though I am judgmental, I am broad-minded and appreciate that there are many right ways. I am also fundamentally a very giving person: e.g. for 8 years I put my wife through college (not just financially but with many hundreds of hours of tutoring). Life has presented me with great opportunities. I am able to make a living of my hobby, scientific research. It affords me a creative outlet that, frankly, I'd pay for if I could. (but hey, let's keep this between us and away from my employer's prying eyes). So I work hard daily at being the best I can be in my field. Life has also presented me with a wonderfully gifted- if these days somewhat difficult- adolescent daughter that I'm trying hard to bring up in the right way. Outside of work and family, I enjoy biking or running daily (always starting about the crack of dawn), hiking (I've hiked all over the place, from the Sierras to the Dolomiti to the mountains of China and even Mt. Fuji in Japan); I listen a lot to classical music while working or not and try to catch some quality concerts (Bach collegium San Diego is a favorite; sometimes also the SD Opera). Dating for me is a means to an end, that of starting to build a close and deep relationship-- I have little time for or interest in any other kind. Thus, I seek an educated, sophisticated, compatible companion, someone I could mesh with, to share my thoughts and feelings. Someone to whom 'beauty of ideas' is not an oxymoron and 'the road less traveled' is not synonymous with 'do not enter'. Someone who appreciates life's simple pleasures- but who appreciates that complexity can be beautiful and pleasurable too. You should be in your 40s, as I am not attracted to older women. Am I expecting too much ?
