In addition to devastating good looks, enormous riches (and an irreverent sense of humor), I’m a bright and adventurous grownup who loves to share my interests and adventures with my friends and family.
I’ve had an interesting life: windsurfed with dolphins, bike-toured in Europe, said g’day to giant clams on the Great Barrier Reef, and played bass for a few thousand people.
I’m terminally curious and love to learn. Both sides of my brain are usually engaged. A friend observed that I have “the Brain of an Engineer, and the Soul of an Artist.”
My life has Balance and Contrast. I'm extroverted and introspective, quick to laugh, and slow to anger. Imagination and pragmatism keep an eye on each other. It's Zen calm with a dollop of mischief.
Animals, kids, and grandparents seem to like me, and being an uncle is one of my favorite jobs (because those kids are so amazing). My family's healthy, drama-free, and my folks are nearing their 50th anniversary.
I'm moved by the elegance of haiku, and love the silliness of English humor. Italian and Japanese culture are inspirations. I see parallels between the strokes in tennis and Asian calligraphy.
I like my 'Laughter Cocktails' shaken, not stirred.
I take great pleasure in long letters and kisses that last for days. The sound of a cello has the same effect as a fingertip moving playfully down my back. Yes, touch is an art form.
NPR feeds my curiosity, but playing KROQ is faster than dusting. My music collection runs from Bach to Hip Hop.
I dream in color. Part of the pleasure that I get from an experience (book, picture, city, whale sighting) comes from sharing it with someone else.
Empathy and Excellence are a way of life, and I do things with Passion, Patience, and Commitment. I'm someone you can count on.
I earn my adrenaline through skill and effort, and believe that dessert is way too important to be left until the end of the meal.
I'm a Man with a Heart, and love and feel deeply.
In a relationship you'll find that I'm playful, passionate, loyal and emotionally available. I think and act in terms of We, not Me. I've been in long committed relationships (up to 10yrs) and stay with it through thick and thin. Like swans, I mate for life.
I'm the real deal.
I’m looking for the Love of My Life:
a kindred spirit and a partner in crime;
a woman who reads my profile and says “Me Too!”
My ideal mate is a rare woman with many of these qualities:
Intelligence, depth and education, with plenty of common sense (because Smart is very Sexy).
Athletic and in good shape emotionally and physically (so we'll keep up with each other).
Practical, independent and low-maintenance at the right times. But she's not afraid to ask for help or a hug.
She communicates clearly, listens carefully, and doesn’t expect mind reading.
Empathy and compassion are in her DNA. She's there when you need her.
Pays attention to the context and details of a situation. She tries to understand both sides of a debate.
Leans towards the casual, but cleans up nicely for a night out. There’s silk and Gore-tex in her closet.
Sense of humor and conversational skills are first rate: she's someone that you'd want to drive cross-country with.
Knows that great relationships don’t just happen, but need attention and effort to thrive. She got over the Prince Charming thing a long time ago.
A passionate snuggler who loves to touch and be touched. She believes that love and passion get better with time.
She's still reading this...
If this sounds like someone you've recently seen in your bathroom mirror, I hope that you’ll send me a note. Life is short, so go ahead and do it. Now. Thanks.
PS - If you like what you've read but the romantic sparks aren't flying, that's cool. Drop me a line. I'm looking for great friends too.
