To give you some background, I've lived in more than a dozen different cities. (stay with me now...) I put myself through Architecture School by working as a roughneck on an oil rig, played rugby internationally, skied for an entire winter in Europe, had a brief modeling career, joined the military and attended Military College, repelled off 200 foot cliffs, racked up 1.5M frequent flier miles as high technology executive in Silicon Valley, presented in front of thousands, traveled the world AND was even a boy scout at one time - here's the most import thing that I learned...
There is only one measure of a man (or a woman) and that is by the depth of the love in your heart and the degree to which you share that with others. Measuring yourself by the size of your house, size of your bank account, your possessions or even your experiences is a waste of time and will not make you happy.
Here are a few additional notes I've compiled along the way...
ON LIFE: I'm a hopeless romantic that sees life as a journey with the intended destination being your own personal realization of self.
ON LOVE: It's hard for me to think of a better way of summing up my thoughts on love than this quote from the movie, "The Notebook". (great depiction of the enduring nature of true love). "The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds." I think I would add, "and releases a torrent of sexual energy in the process."
ON FRIENDS: You feel each others joy and pain from across the room and across the globe. If they don't feel you, they don't know you.
ON FAMILY: They know you, not only for who you are but how you have evolved and they love you for all that you have been and for all that you will be.
ON SPIRITUALITY: In my opinion, you and your God should talk openly and often.
Lest you think that I may be too serious, now that would miss me entirely. I am free-spirited and spontaneous to a fault. Consider for a moment that I've been through some very serious stuff but I never let it hold me down; I really don't see the point in it.
Some have described me as charming or magnetic, that will be for you to decide but I do think people want to know me for two main reasons - they feel the love in my heart and I make them laugh and think.
Physically speaking, I still feel like a 19 year-old, I work out regularly at Equinox and it's not unlikely to see me doing back flips off the roof of my buddies yacht. (btw, I put my age lower for the sake of the search categories despite being in my late 40s but I assure you that my pictures are recent and that is exactly how I will look if we meet.)
OK, enough of ME talking about myself, tell me what you feel about me? (kidding)
Here's what I am looking for in my match:
First off she has to be a GREAT kisser. No, I mean like we may never see eachother again. Her beauty has no formula but it needs to shine from within - and her smile needs to light up a room. She has to be fun-loving and adventurous. She needs to not take herself too seriously but seriously when the situation calls for it. I am looking for a woman that, above all else, loves herself, loves her family and friends yet has the capacity to love me without reserve. There must be a certain need to give love.
Finally, I'm looking for someone who loves to go out to great restaurants, live music haunts, fun openings, fashion shows, industry events and live theater - a woman who loves romance, is extremely passionate and is not afraid of "going fast" if it all feels right. So if you think we may be a match then mark me as a Favorite and I'll do the same and get things started.
