ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

"During the Tang dynasty, the Chinese artist Wu Tao-tzu was one day standing looking at a mural he had just completed. Suddenly, he clapped his hands and the temple gate opened. He went into his work and the gates closed behind him."

Someone told me this epigraph sounds like the intro to a Wu-Tang song. Yes, it does. I just like it.

These self-descriptions are excruciating to write, but I'll do my best. I consider myself thoughtful, generous, and career-focused but (hopefully) not obsessively so. I'm a bookworm but I like to stay physically active. When it comes to adventure, I incline toward getting lost in a new city, preferably overseas, more than Extreme Sports or that sort of thing. I'm often an extrovert, and at other times an introvert. I'm a good listener--maybe an excellent listener for those I care about deeply. I'm very close to my family and have a stalwart group of friends who (in my biased view) would enhance anyone's Board of Trustees.

I'm a sucker for kindness and an effervescent personality--even better if she laughs often (with me or at me) and understands the magic of reciprocity. It would be cool if we shared, say, similar musical or cinematic tastes, but I'm also attracted to difference: I'd like to learn about and share my partner's passions, especially if they differ from my own (unless you're, like, passionately xenophobic or something; that would not interest me.) Ideally, we should be able, as the English say, to "set the world a'right" (i.e., have a long good conversation). It sounds a bit precious, but it's true: I hope to find the right person to spoil like there's no tomorrow.

Finally, a few Fun Facts:

• I’m not sure what this says about my masculinity, but I love to shop for designer purses for my
mom (because she likes them but rarely splurges on herself).
• I cook a mean gumbo and shrimp and grits.
• I’ve taught for brief stints at universities in Germany, Japan, and Taiwan.
• Sometimes when I’m listening to music I’ll get the urge to dance, alone, in my apartment.
• It happens less nowadays, but for a long time it seemed like complete strangers saw something
in me that made them want to tell me their whole life story.

Last read:

Tough to say--I read books for a living. But recently: George Saunders's essay collection, The Braindead Megaphone, is preposterously funny and brilliant.
