ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

If you want to skip to the end, I'm looking for the girl next door with a wild side (but I think it's a fun read).

I have several advanced degrees, made so much money in business that I retired at 40, and speak French, Italian, Spanish, and Mandarin fluently. I was an All-Ivy lacrosse player, have completed several Iron Mans and one Iditarod, dance brilliantly, play the piano, and have had my poetry published in the New Yorker. I am an accomplished chef, and enjoy adventure sports like helicopter skiing and extreme deep sea diving. I summer in Aspen and winter in Martinique. Children and animals adore me.

I'd like to meet someone who doesn't have to work because they soaked their ex for big bucks during the divorce, leaving them time to do boot camp or yoga while most people are driving to work, then hit Whole Foods, maybe clean up for lunch at Clark's, then meet the nanny when she brings the kids home from school. Also, I love to travel, but business class is getting to be like riding the bus, so I'm up for a road trip. Let's take your Range Rover or German SUV and hit every town with a Ritz Carlton.

Okay, stop here. If you haven't realized that what you've read so far is a parody, we probably aren't a good fit.

So. Looking for love downtown was never my thing and the process isn't getting any more enjoyable (I like bars, I just don't like talking to strangers in bars, or, really, even watching other people do that awkward dance). I don't go to church or belong to a running club. Workplace dating often ends badly. Options for meeting someone are limited. So here's to Internet dating. The following characteristics represent an ideal. None of them are deal breakers (except for the FOX News thing). You . . .
are educated and attractive;
dress well and occasionally up;
like or tolerate my interests in sports and politics;
like good food and drink, but are equally cool with dive bars;
enjoy travel;
are okay with the fact that dancing literally makes my skin crawl;
are not looking for a training partner for triathlons, marathons, Ironman, etc.(I will run up to 4 miles with you, but 4 miles is far enough); and
don't watch FOX News, ever, unless you're doing opposition research or watching someone on Comedy Central mock and scorn FOX.

I know, it's a lot to ask.

Me? I'm a native Austinite, so sometimes (often) I complain about traffic, the City of Austin's War on Parking, the proliferation of "luxury" high-rise condos, and transplants buying up the East Side sight unseen and filling Tarrytown with zero-lot line monstrosities, but I try to check myself.

I favor independent restaurants and businesses over chains (if you see me at Chili's, I am probably in an airport).

It makes no sense to care what a bunch of college kids with whom I have little in common do on a fall Saturday, but I do because they have that Longhorn decal on the side of their helmets (although being endlessly bombarded with advertising and sponsored "contests" during every stoppage of play is making the live event less enjoyable with each passing season).

I like movies, books, photography, and music. Not so much the jet skis, motorcycles, skydiving, etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm plenty active. But the risk/reward on most thrill-seeking activities rarely adds up for me.

If I won the lottery, I'd have a place in Colorado, or Canada, or Northern California, or maybe Connecticut, at which to escape the Texas heat every August.

The pictures? We all look. They span about five years. In the most recent (March 2014), I am wearing an orange shirt and sunglasses. Next, seated with two beers in the foreground (July 2013). Then in sunglasses again, holding a shirt in my hands (March 2013). Standing in front of the car (Spring 2013). Giants hat (August 2012). Then (both from September 2011), among the cars (tailgating at Rose Bowl before the UCLA game), and smiling at my menu.
