ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I've read dozens of women's profiles and peeked at a couple of men's ones (samples for guidance, not that there's anything wrong with that :-)). If I'm going to go by many of these examples, it would seem advantageous for me to enjoy romantic sunset walks on the beach followed up with nightclubs and dancing. Well, if these are your primary criteria, I'm afraid you can count me out. I'm more of a mountain, forest, lake, and stream, city kind of guy. My fantasy vacation has long been a cottage on a lake in Scotland with time to chill, read, explore the countryside, and meet the locals. Should the Loch Ness Monster care to make an appearance, I'd certainly be happy to meet him/her.

I was trained as a lab researcher (PhD from Rutgers), but quickly morphed into a medical-science writer, a career I've pursued for more decades than I care to remember. Along the way I've published six books on alternative/natural medicine (one of which is actually earning royalties), several booklets, countless magazine articles, and a few book chapters. I've also created numerous multimedia presentations that reflect the personal and spiritual life and growth of myself and those around me. Most important, I contributed to the growth and rearing of a remarkable young woman who recently brought a new soul into this crazy world.

Friends and colleagues for years have marveled at my apparent "serenity." If only they knew! We all have our demons, and life has taught me that it's better to make friends with them than to deny them or attempt to fight them off. I love cooking for friends and family. Although I'm no gourmet cook, I'm pretty good a at following a recipe. I find cooking for myself rather boring and resort to take-out far too often.

But enough about me (I assure you there's nothing further to be known!), who am I looking for? I'm looking for a lady who's independent, intelligent, self-assured, and takes good care of herself; who's looking up while everyone else is looking down; who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to reach for it; who has a good sense of humor that draws for inspiration from both the outside and the inside.

My experience over more than 40 years of marriage taught me that honesty and trust form the foundation of all strong relationships with communication a close second. I think it's definitely a plus for a couple to appreciate a variety of things in common, but in many cases opposites do attract, but we need to respect each other's choices. A woman who is outgoing and talkative might clash with a man who had similar traits; on the other hand, she might be more comfortable with a guy who was more reserved and better at listening and offering her support and not competing for the same space. It may be great to have fun together on the ski slopes, but it's far more important to be there for each other when life throws it's inevitable curve balls (sorry for the mixed metaphor). I tend to be rather reserved and it sometimes takes a while for people to get to know me, but once they do, it usually works out well.

Finally, there's that immeasurable factor of chemistry -- whether it's love at first sight or at least like at first sight, we all crave it. I doubt that real love can happen in an instant, "like" maybe, but love is too complex, it needs time to mature like a fine wine.

If any of this resonates with you, I'd enjoy hearing from you. In the mean time I'll keep on looking from this side. Maybe we'll meet up somewhere in the middle.
