Hi! Thanks for reading my profile. I love getting together with friends and family to hear a good story, or tell one. Im a jazz pianist and almost every day I'm at the piano trying to learn a new song. I'd love to know what your favorite song is so that I could learn it too. I also love playing volleyball, golf, tennis, and other sports that will give me a good reason to get outside and feel the sun on my shoulders. I love deep and interesting conversations about fascinating things that probably cant be explained and I'm constantly trying to have something new and exciting going on in my life. I'm also very interested in why some relationships work and others dont, and what I can do to make it work. And, of course, trying to unravel the greatest mystery in the universe...women. ;) just kidding!
I used to dislike Cleveland and the winter, but they've grown on me. I'm embracing both. In fact, I think that I need the winter to do those things I wouldn't do during the summer. I take this time of the year to reflect on who I am, see what I like and don't like, and then make changes to become the best possible person I can be. I dont take myself too seriously, and almost never get angry or worried (thats not going to help matters). I heard a woman say that her husband was "the finest man to draw breath". That has stuck with me. How I'd like to be thought of that way by the people who know me best.
I think Its fine to blow your own horn as long as you can back it up, while you inspire others. Making other people feel small or insignificant bothers me, and I never do it. I think my friends and family enjoy my company because I'm going to bring a positive energy every time. They also know that they can always count on me when the chips are down. A true friend is worth more than anything.
I'm an only child and my parents are older than most of my friend's parents. I think that has instilled some old fashioned values from a generation that has been forgotten. My parents have been happily married for 36 years, and they are one of the few couples who truly lift my spirits. My mom recently emailed me, saying that they were still in love after all these years. How awesome.
I feel very fortunate for where I am in life. I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be and very grateful for everything that i have and have become. An awesome woman would enhance my life though.
So...It would be great to meet someone who treats others the way they'd like to be treated, is fun, easygoing, genuine, self aware, independent, interesting, kind, compassionate, and someone who shares similar interests in the performing arts and/or sports. Shoot me an email. You'll find that I'm normal, yet probably unlike many men you've met before. But if I like you, I may not play any games, and that might chase you away. How exciting! Lets see what happens.
