The unimportant basics: I own an apartment in Manhattan and love to do the city; a cottage in the woods on a river where I have a pottery studio and where I love to do nothing (and do it well); and a beach house in Mexico. Play tennis and squash. Read mysteries and historical non-fiction. I've travelled the world and done lots of fun things. I'm lucky to have a small group of close, wonderfully supportive friends and a close, loving family. The important thing: I'd change anything for the right woman. There's been a hollowness in my gut and heart for too long. I have a great need to share life with someone special. I know I am both independent and competent. But I would rather spend days looking forward to coming home to a special someone whose mere sight will make me smile and whose smile will light up the room. I've learned much from past relationships and believe I'm much better because of them. For one thing, I now always leave the toilet seat down! I am one of the rare, loyal, warm, caring men looking to find someone to spoil...and to be spoiled.
I suppose many of us have some ideal definition of what we're looking for. But it's more important to just have an open mind. Very pretty. Slim. Sexy. Able to turn me on just by looking at me. It's highly subjective, but that chemistry thing is essential. But also someone bright, witty, great conversationalist. Can make me laugh. Able to laugh at and with me. Able to laugh at herself. Warm, caring and considerate... willing to give. (The antithesis of a self-absorbed princess.) Lives by the Golden Rule, as I do. Willing to join me in cooking at home (I really enjoy cooking) as well as dress great and eat out. Open to a man with eclectic interests. We don't have to have the same interests, we just need to have compatible ones. Perhaps most importantly, a woman who understands and is capable of a mutual intimacy leading to a sharing of all passions.
