ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Isn’t it funny, where the journey of your life leads you? Thirty-plus years ago, I sat in Charlotte, crashed on a fraternity brother’s sofa, nervously imagining my post-college life. I still remember my prediction of… a successful career in advertising … marriage in my early 30’s and our first child by 35 (sigh).

Well… let’s just say, when it comes to psychic readings “Carnac the Magnificent,” I ain’t.

Rather than the picture painted above… I spent four more years studying at two universities, living in two countries, six cities and traveling the globe for a career; not in advertising but in food. Girlfriends came and went, with varying degrees of success. Sadly, none had the long-term compatibility of my canine companions.

Coincidentally, my career brought me back to Charlotte in the late 90’s. It was a challenging and stressful position that I was fortunate to retire from recently. Which brings us to today.

Now, rather than 60 hour weeks in the office… I wake up with the sun (and dogs) having no set agenda. "How do you keep busy?" (everyone asks this) I walk/play with the dogs, workout, lunch with friends, participate in charity events, tackle projects around my house, tinker with an old car I'm restoring and generally - enjoy life.

Unfortunately, I’ve also begun to reluctantly settle into bachelorhood…

Key to the prior sentence is the word “reluctantly.” While, after 30 years of cooking, cleaning and caring for one… I’m accustomed to being single; I honestly believe that life’s journey is more fun and fulfilling with a partner.

So, who would be a great partner for me? Well…
… someone who is kind and creative.
… someone who isn’t looking to start a family.
… someone who is baggage (or at least drama) free.
… someone who LOVES dogs.
… someone who is health minded & fitness oriented.
… someone who isn’t religious (or, at least, won’t mind that I’m not).
… someone who is to the left politically.
… someone who knows what NPR is.
… someone who prefers flats to heels, ponytails to hairspray, jeans to gowns, soap to make-up, pubs to clubs... (get the picture?)

What can I offer in return?...
… Charming wit.
… Kindness and understanding.
… Zero drama or baggage.
… Boyish good looks (coupled with an over developed sense of optimism).
… A sincere desire to make and keep my perfect partner happy.

So that's my life... If it sounds like we might be good for each other... please write!
Sorry, while I do appreciate them, I don't generally respond to "winks" or "likes."

Finally, while I'm flattered to receive notes from 40, 60, 100 miles away... my hope is to find a match who is a little closer to "home."
