I’m an Intellectually-motivated dedicated father of one of heaven's most beautiful angels. I’m seeking a partner who sees past the noise in life.
I spend as much time as possible with my little girl. I love books (both reading them and working on my own), solving games (through statistical analysis), and just "exploring.” I enjoy great food, fine wines, and most importantly, great conversation. When time permits, I travel to foreign and exotic lands (New Jersey doesn't count people).
I love meeting new and interesting people. Fed up with the "status quo", I've embarked on a new adventure in life and once again am seeking that perfect balance. My ideal partner is someone who can accept me for my idiosyncratic tendencies (like refusing to believe good wine can come from California but welcome anyone who truly thinks they can prove me wrong on this point), and is adventurous. I also have some less-intense hobbies like writing (working on 2 books now), reading, the fine arts (symphonies, operas, museums and galleries), fixing things (So I'm at home with a screwdriver and a hammer .. meh), fishing, meditation, cooking, gardening, and the martial arts. (I find time for all of these things and yet still have a few hours free.. Go figure.)
I'm a serial entrepreneur and don't believe that Social Security will be around long enough to even contribute a penny towards my retirement. So I start businesses as my hobby and retirement plan. Some of my businesses include: An insurance company, A Telephone Company, and I'm a business / strategic consultant.
My Partner should be (will be) Intellectually-Stimulating (NOT someone who believes a current event is the 20% off sale at Nordstroms).
I live for Joie de Vivre. I believe in this most whole-heartedly. This is the reason behind my love for excitement. It doesn't mean that I'm not a laid-back person. Au contraire! On many an afternoon, you can find me sitting on the shores of some island sipping a drink and reading a book (or something written).
I say what I think (as long as it isn't hurtful or out of malice) and do what I say. These traits tend to get me in trouble. In other words, if it comes out of my mouth, I'll most definitely do it. I will, however, rebut that last comment with one disclaimer; I'm very careful with what I say.
I am truthful, loyal, and try to be a good person in life. I couldn't see myself with someone who doesn't have the same value system. Another thing… I enjoy the finer things in life, but in moderation (by choice, not by means).
Just looking for someone who is spiritually-aware, emotionally-mature, intellectually-challenging, and psychologically-stable.. (someone I find attractive would be nice also *grin*) not much, huh?
Let's laugh together.
Appendix A (Only I would add an Appendix to my Match profile.. go figure): When I fall for someone, there's nothing I wouldn't do for them.. When I do, I'll spoil you rotten! (With my affection and various other things..) *chuckle*
Appendix B (Well If I started with Appendices, I might as well continue): If you do any of the following, please don't bother contacting me.
1. The kissy "fish face" thing in every picture you have.
2. Feel the need to lower your self worth by posting pictures of yourself in lingerie for all of match.com to see.
3. Feel the need to show a picture of yourself on some red-carpet in front of a background that says, "Gucci, LV, or Prada"
4. Mangle the English language (is that even possible) even worse than it already is.
5.Refer to yourself as princess anywhere in your profile.
6. Feel that a relationship needs to be completely superficial.
7. Are racist. (Then again, you wouldn't be contacting me if you were.. lol)
