ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

So... you're reading my profile. That's a good sign that you have good taste... we've already got something in common!

I had a really long profile but I decided to shorten it. Then I got carried way with the bullet points and it got long again.

• I live a good life.

• I have extraordinary friends and family.

• I have a good reputation. Part inherited, part sustained, and part built from scratch.

• I thrive on having an ever expanding circle of influence. I make friends easily and retain them long term.

• I've been told I was 'born out of time'.

• Though I have tried to talk myself into it at times, I do not believe I am ready to date someone seriously who already has children.

• I’ve entered a new chapter in my life this past year. The last chapter was one of the best ones yet and I fully expect this new one to be even better. I was an entrepreneur for 8 years and simultaneously deeply involved in various civic and volunteer groups. In January I sold my interest in the company and departed most of the volunteer boards. In its place I started a completely new career with a management consulting firm. I’m transitioning my lifestyle and my life from Anniston (which I love) back to Birmingham (which I also love) after having been gone for over a decade. I just closed on a condo that overlooks downtown and is the coolest and probably most convenient place I've ever lived.

•I’m bored at football watching events and many concerts after about 20 minutes. That is better than my rate for ballet though, where I'm bored after about 1 second. I also haven't had cable in 12 years (though I do watch Netflix). Thus sitting down to watch TV every night is not a part of my lifestyle. I’d rather be doing something- socializing, exploring, running, hiking, cycling, canoeing, reading, anything but sitting still at most entertainment venues that have no impact on my life. That said, there are exceptions...I do have season tickets to a high quality black-tie concert series.

• I’m not a religious nut however my Christian faith is very important to me. I can’t imagine facing life’s greatest decisions, heartbreaks, and challenges without it. I grew up in a moderate Baptist church with a very wise, philosophical minister who was more Methodist than Baptist. I have been attending Episcopal services, and plan to join an Episcopal church once I am settled back in Birmingham.

• I’m open minded and a political moderate. My ultimate political philosophy is that if people minded their own business, we'd all be a lot better off. In my mind, that can be applied to everything from gay marriage to gun ownership.

• I laugh a lot.

My ideal first date is a low key, no pressure conversation over coffee or supper. No pressure to me means that if we walk away as new friends, then that is great. If we walk away both wanting a second date, great. It should be the strong potential for a win-win either way for two mature adults.

Also… it is a basic requirement that you be who you say you are and not a big hairy scary old man wearing a wife beater t-shirt only pretending to be a woman online ;)
