I think I'd rather go through puberty again than try to come up with this intro. I enjoy a challenge as much as the next guy, but to describe myself and the woman of my dreams in a jaunty, attractive way while still being honest seems, well, in a word, hard. But you've already put yourself through it, I assume, so in the interest of fair play I will do my best.
I'm a good listener, but I also like to talk. Public speaking doesn't scare me. I'm a good storyteller. Most people find me quite funny. I've written comedy professionally, and did standup in the 80s for a while.
Thanks to a young woman who was kind enough to show me what I was doing wrong when I was sixteen years old, and how to do it right, I'm a very good kisser. I don't say that to brag. It's just that good kissing is important to me. Of course, it takes two good kissers to really do it well.
I love the english language. P.G. Wodehouse is hilarious. I love music of all kinds, as long as it's excellent. As William S. said, "If music be the food of love, play on."
I love women in general. I especially love smart, funny, articulate women. I am looking for a True Companion; someone who is self-aware, but not self-involved. I especially value someone who will tell me what she's feeling.
I'd really love to find a partner who would also be a dive buddy. Scuba diving is one of the best things in the world to me. But it's not a deal breaker if you're not up for that.
I'm honest, open, and most of the time I'm aware of my feelings. I'd appreciate it if you were, too.
FYI, I am perfectly comfortable (and of course devastatingly sexy) in whatever clothing might be appropriate to whatever situation, whether it be jeans or tuxedos. I own a beautifully tailored high-end tux, and enjoy putting on the ritz when the occasion arises. But in general, I dress casually. I do wonder why so many women's profiles make mention of the fact that they are able to dress in different kinds of outfits.
