ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Where to start??

Well, I've always been attracted to intelligent women with an interest in all things creative and artistic, different cultures, travel, and world events. A sense of adventure is also a plus. I enjoy good conversation, connecting not only emotionally but intellectually. Being able to share the same pleasures is important but I also value being exposed to things I wouldn't find on my own. This could be music, ideas, food, or just about anything that broadens my horizons. And I confess to being an old-fashioned, diehard romantic, and am rather proud of it. Why not??

About the woman I'd want in my life: I DON'T need someone to cook and clean and otherwise look after me. I can do all that just fine on my own, and have all my life. I DO want someone to share all the important things in life with. My ideal partner (of course no one is "ideal," but we can dream, can't we?) would be supportive, independent minded, strong-willed, sensitive, and have an interesting perspective on life in general. I'm attracted to people who have many dimensions to themselves and can't be understood or "type cast" so easily.

I also love outdoor activities and exercise a great deal--I've been an avid runner all my life, but I also like bicycling, cross-country skiing, and hiking. Other interests: classical music, jazz, art museums and galleries, history and understanding the world more deeply, and travel to fascinating parts of the world not usually thought of a tourist destinations.

In the professional realm, I do a lot of writing (nonfiction essays, plays, and film) and am also seriously interested in photography. For 5 years I was a contract writer for the U.S. State Department, writing feature stories for its Web site on Arab/Muslim life in the U.S. For better or worse (mostly for the better, I suppose), I've spent most of my life in the academic world, but don't consider myself a career academic. Teaching has simply been a convenient way to make a living while pursuing my "real" aims.

I'm originally from Chicago and return every summer, in between teaching at a university in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. I've been doing this for 7-8 years and that's enough. It's been an fascinating experience and allowed me to see much of the world I never would have otherwise, but it's time for a change.

I should also mention that all of my photos were taken in the last few years. Some might think that they must be hopelessly dated, but I've always looked much younger than my age. (The point here is NOT vanity but honesty!) I suppose I could lie and present myself as 42-45, but I'd rather be straightforward because there is so much deception on the Internet and the dating game in general.

So if you can get over "the number" and find what I said intriguing, please reply, ask whatever you like, and tell me more about you
