I am pleasantly complicated while emotionally and intellectually available. I am well-educated, adventurous and an” optimistic realist.” Two of my favorite things are to laugh and travel. I love life's intricacies and the dynamic people I have met throughout my life/travels; I have lived in Europe and throughout the US but I’m a California-boy at heart. My flavor of humor is playful, mischievous, slightly on the dry side and respectfully edgy; (maybe that’s why I spent most of my first years in school out in the hall). I am a Boston College, Berkeley undergrad and Wharton MBA educated and can carry on conversations freely, the deeper the better. I am stimulated by substantive conversations but will always take humor above all else. In addition to my career, I started and ran a pet-therapy foundation. I am a dog lover and have a special gift for training dogs for therapy purposes.
I ask for nothing I would not give another. My friends and family are most important to me. I am fiercely loyal and believe that "trust" is one of the four key aspects of an amazing relationship; laughter(humor), intimacy and health are the others. Respectful and honest communication is paramount and interlaced within everything. I believe pure chemistry takes time to evolve and has much to do with the amount of time, importance and effort two people put into their relationship. Food and wine laced with companionship makes me a happy man.
I take care of myself, have many hobbies(very athletic) and feel most alive when traveling. I do not live in the past and look forward to every new day and opportunity. I am a pure optimist and believe that I will find someone who I will share an intense, lifelong chemistry. I believe in romance and understand that building and maintaining an amazing relationship is a full-time, mutual activity(I hope she believes the same.) Lastly, there is no dark secret as to why I am here. Between timing and career, I have not been blessed with my life partner, as of yet.
I am seeking a woman with both a strong and soft/vulnerable side; a woman who exudes class without arrogance, who can give love and receive love; understands that respecting herself is also respecting me. Intelligence, intimacy and humor are great alone but imperative together for a deep relationship. She should be in touch with her physical and spiritual side and understand that being sexual is an amazing thing not something to be ashamed about. I am very affectionate with a special person and want her to be the same. Intelligence is paramount but street-smarts are more interesting and valuable than book-knowledge. I also hope to find a woman:
- who understands that trust and intimacy are the foundation of a relationship.
- that understands that dressing sexy does not mean dressing slutty.
- who understands that chivalry is not dead but there is no "entitlement."
- that saying "thank you" is a true and simple sign of class.
- understands that a whisper can be heard better than yelling.
- who is truly affectionate both physically and emotionally and who wants reciprocity.
