ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I scan the ads we put out here for each other and I've written the usual fluffy profile (without bare-chested fish photos). But I dumped it. I've come to realize that chemistry is more about energy meeting energy than playmates matching "things to do". See if my rewrite speaks to you...

Us: We're looking more for a happy silly home life than a go-go parade of nights out. We're die-hard romantics, damn it, with sassy banter. We like smarts, nerds and quirky people. We throw mad dinner parties, playing Julia Child while mayhem erupts. We glance across the room mind-reading by eyebrow wiggle. We laugh over idiotic comedies (my daughter cringes at my too-loud laugh, "Dad!"). We want simple time together, closeness and "Where-have-you-been-I-missed-us." Intrigued? Hi.

Me: I'm quietly confident in knowing who I am and who I need: someone to see past the polished work persona to my inner idiot (I used to trip over my daughter's naked Barbies in the shower). Someone curious and self aware--unafraid to whisper "I hear you. Now kiss me." I don't need my space, a man cave or bromances. No Harley hides out back with a pink helmet for your pretty lil' head. I outgrew needing to be "right" and I wish my ex well on her path. Curious?

You: You're eager to try again. You want to create a whole life--for the guy, the kids, good work. You want to be prized and valued and want to do that for your guy too. You want to talk, text, connect. Your want to give the glow of your heart. You want someone who makes you think, laugh and laugh and, well, blush. Arched eyebrow? Hey there.

Careers: I run a small ad agency (like Mad Men, without the women and booze). I need one decent idea a day. Yes, I'm good at it, but it doesn't define me anymore. You: you're curious about people and the world. You're engaged with your people.

Kids: Being a father is simply the most wonderfully difficult thing that I've learned from and gone grey over. The sand is slipping through the hourglass of time that I get as Dad. My daughter is a bright and sassy 17-yr-old. We talk style, colleges, relationships (endlessly), fashion (really). Just the other day I almost ran down a jaywalker. "Should have hit him just for wearing that brown velour track suit." "Dad!!!" She busts my chops. My 23 yr old son is launched and I miss him so. Still here? Bless you.

City/Island: Left the western burbs for Beacon Hill. Love the mix and its village feel. Summers are beachy on Nantucket (I have a place). Winters are spent talking trash with Savenor butchers (my mensch) and catering to my daughter's social life.

DNA: I grew up poor in $, rich in ideas, the son of a Cambridge Feminist and US Navy officer, running wild in South Carolina. Made me curious, quick and Southern (= manners). I helped raise my siblings. Adversity has hammered me on life's anvil (credit to Paul Child) and I've navigated my people through unusual tragedies. Once a management consulting shark, I've reclaimed the creative, more Bohemian person I used to be. I believe in inclusivity and individuality and can find something real to talk about with anyone. Can't really imagine a long kiss with a Fox TV lover (sorry!).

Lovely ladies of Match, I only seek a long-term forever partner. Honestly, I want to be together--in Boston, Nantucket or your place. It's all risk, this giving your heart to another, taking the chance of opening up again. I'm searching for the gal who says "I'm ready. I don't NEED a partner-- I WANT one, I'll work for it." Let's do life's adventure together–eyes open and excited. Ready?

Caveats: Separated? My best to you on your path, but contact after court. If you live in NH or RI, please want regular time in Boston. NYC gals: I have worked from NYC happily.
