ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Searching for that special someone... hoping to find a woman that is funny, bright, fit, active, and happy with who she is. Confidence, independence, and intelligence are very attractive qualities! I'm looking to meet someone with that mental/physical [metaphysical?] "connection" that defies description -- something you just ‘know’ when you feel it.

Me: I’m easy-going, loyal, active, drug and drama free, a lover of learning and spirited conversation. I grew up near Green Bay [yes, I own Packers stock] but moved to Lincoln Park while going to school before moving out to the suburbs. Love Chicago but hate the traffic! I also love to write, but ‘myself’ isn’t my best topic -- conversation is so much easier and more direct, so let’s talk.


QUICK PICKS! [** this material is OPTIONAL; none of it is on the test ** ]
-I think Chunky Monkey is the best.
-I’m NEVER bored. I’m interested in everything and love finding new things to learn.
-I was a journalist and radio/tv broadcaster in my Navy days.
-I feel good if I can follow everything in a Dennis Miller Rant.
-I do not text, twitt, weblog, or ‘TheFacebook’. Its almost like I don’t EXIST! [but Descartes assures me otherwise]
-I am as uncomfortable in jeans and t-shirt as I am in a suit, but decorum dictates I wear *something* [damn you, decorum!].
-I am working on my sarcasm issues, but in my defense I believe its not really ‘sarcasm’ if it really is
‘true’.
-I believe that both Wilson [in ‘Cast Away’] and Teddy [in ‘A.I.’] were robbed of Best Supporting Actor nominations. For Shame!
-I’m wary of profiles that include the phrases ‘partner in crime’ and/or ‘soulmate’; it makes me think of Luke Perry and Ashley Judd in ‘Normal Life’. I’m also not a fan of ‘work hard/play hard’, but at least
there’s nothing sociopathic about it.
-Taking “The Road Less-Traveled-By” does NOT make all the difference; you need to read the whole poem [its only 20 lines], not just the coda.
-My time on Match seems to prove Freud was right when he said women tend to fall into two categories: those whose favorite film is ‘The Notebook’, and those who prefer ‘The Shawshank Redemption’. [Relevant BBT quote -- Bernadette: “You mean we’re going to spend all night staring at the screen, waiting for something to happen?” Howard: “Well, I did it with you when we rented ‘The Notebook’.”]
-I’ve tried being “cocky, not confident” but just can’t seem to get the hang of it : (
-In re: the film ‘This Is 40’ ... for those who have always wondered: Yes, it IS possible to “walk out” on a movie you’re watching on HBO.
-Confession: If the Cosmo is sitting there, I ALWAYS take the quiz --how else will I know if I’m “Good-Girl Hot” or “Bad-Girl Hot”? [for the record: I was ‘Good-Girl’ Hot, but that’s OK .. everyone knows
‘Good Girl’ Hot is the new ‘Bad Girl’ Hot]
-I apologize for not having all the MANdatory photos. I am still searching for: a shirtless “flex pose”; me triumphantly holding up a largemouth bass; a selfie in a toothpaste-spackled mirror; and a glamour shot on the hood of my IROC. Please bear with me.

-04/12 LONG run: the Skokie Lagoon trails [Botanical Gardens to Northfield to Winnetka and back -- a half ‘thon!!]
UP NEXT: bonus run in Addison?


*full disclosure: I am over 40 but dropped my ‘published age’ below that because I’m getting WAY too many hits from the over-50 crowd [and dropping my ‘Ideal Match’ age limit down to ‘40’ didn’t work, so let’s give this a shot]

Interests:
Coffee and conversation, Dining out, Movies/Videos, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Performing arts
Sports & exercise:
Football, Running, Swimming, Tennis / Racquet sports, Walking / Hiking, Weights / Machines, Yoga
Exercise habits:
I exercise 5 or more times per week
Pets:
Pet Essay:

“I love cats! They’re the epitome of indifference!” -Amy Farrah Fowler

Is it so hard to believe that a man can like cats? They were good enough for T.S. Eliot [and 7,485 Broadway performances]

Aquarius
College:
University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL
For fun:

guitar [electric and acoustic]; tennis; writing [fiction, poetry as inspiration comes!]; running; movie quotes; fixing computer problems; P90-X and Insanity!; learning languages

Favorite hot spots:

Ireland [got Skellig Michael on my 'must visit before you die' list]... Japan... Utah.. Lake Geneva [Wisconsin, not Switzerland, although that's probably pretty sweet, too...]

Favorite things:

Springsteen, pre-Achtung U2, Guns N' Roses, BoDeans, Bang!-era Neil Diamond, J.S. Bach. Chicago architecture. House M.D. Jeopardy! Aeschylus. ‘The Lake House’. State Quarters [why can't I spend them??? I must have $500 worth].
