ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I realize I may be hard to match but I know I would be a great partner for the right woman. Calling myself "Hard to match" does not mean I think there's something wrong with me, however, and I am not interested in arrogance or entitled attitudes.

I am passionate, intense, and take a positive attitude about the things I do and the life I live. I am quite selective about whom I date, and I am only interested in women who are drawn to passion and intensity in a man. Those who are intrigued or excited by it might enjoy reading more. *Please note that I am very unlikely to be interested in anyone under age 50* (unless she is quite exceptional) and usually do not associate at all with women who are under age 40.

I try constantly to improve myself and believe in doing the right thing even if it's not the easy thing. I strive to be a man of both integrity and learning, caring about others and sticking to my principles. I like challenges and those close to me say I am a very determined person.

And, in fact, I am a believer in the supreme potential of determination. I have had a wide variety of life experiences from being a college professor to rigging parachutes and jumping out of airplanes for the Army. Although my intensity makes me serious about the things I care about, I do have a sense of humor and could not have gotten through life without it.

I like a vigorous debate. Yet I also like finding common ground with the very same people I might have just debated. My friends say I am very logical and analytical, and when I form an opinion I ground it in evidence as best I can. But I am committed to respecting the opinions of others also, and I believe I can do that while still being sincere in my own beliefs. I absolutely believe in the importance of real, connecting communication. I think a man can know how to say what he thinks and what he feels, know how to listen, and yet still be a traditional, strong man – that how I like to live. Although I currently live and work in Memphis, TN, my career is one that will likely take me to a few other places in the future.

I'm looking for someone who has a sense of adventure and yet can still at times enjoy the comfort of familiarity and of routine, and has a love of learning and exploration, a good mind and a sense of creativity. She must be strong yet feminine, be confident yet still enjoy being treated sweetly and enjoying the intensity of an assertive man. I especially enjoy women who appreciate the arts, culture, and the history of ideas, places and things. I enjoy women who can pull off that classic-yet-stylish look, who enjoy bringing beauty into everyday life and who can carry themselves with poise and grace.

I also very much enjoy physical fitness and take pride in maintaining myself physically. I believe that physical fitness, emotional health, and spiritual vitality are all linked. I enjoy the vigor of challenging activities but find meditative peace in the most strenuous workouts. My partner absolutely MUST be someone who cares about staying fit and preferably can enjoy physical activities with me. Partner yoga is beautiful.

I am also looking for someone who considers herself spiritually advanced, who recognizes and honors her inner goddess and who wants a man who can appreciate that even as he himself strives to build his own inner strength as a man.

Although I do not hide my passionate nature, I also strive for realism and do not want to rush into anything too soon. I take seriously the process of getting to know someone. Although I enjoy some relaxed and laid-back times, I also have a taste for getting dressed up and enjoy women who do also. Although I believe connections must come on multiple levels and not just the physical, I do not dismiss the importance of physical attraction and chemistry. In fact, I honor them and look for others who, far from being afraid of intense mutual physical attraction, find it a wonder to be cherished when found.

Favorite things:

Reading and learning is very important to me. It's not just a part of my work, it's something that helps me enjoy life. I enjoy art and culture, and can't resist a museum I haven't seen before. Yet I still like to get out on the town also.
