ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I've been doing the Match thing for a little over a year now and I suppose it's time for a new introduction.

My cousin recently came to me for some dating advice. She said she doesn't have any luck and that she doesn't make the best choices in men. I told her she just needed to remember two things. These two things pretty much describe my philosophy of dating so I'll share them here.

1. We've been getting to know people our whole lives. It's no great trick for most people, until it comes to dating. As soon as we enter Dating Mode, when we meet someone new, we forget everything we've learned about getting to know someone and become crazy people. We read way too much into the smallest details and turn what should be a laid back fun experience into a form of fortune telling, most often giving up before we get anywhere near the good parts. Well, I refuse to do that. If you and I exchange a few emails and make plans to meet, let me tell you a little secret. I'm going to be rooting for you. I'll be rooting for me too. If there's no real connection, no worries. We'll have a nice time and part as friends. Chances are, even if there's no connection, I'll see about a million things about you that command my respect.

2. There's really only one thing you need to know about a person before deciding if it's right for you. What does that person across the table from you see when he looks at you? What is the image of you that gets reflected back from his eyes? If you can figure that out, the rest is straightforward. Does it lift you up? Will it remind you to feel the way you want to feel about yourself?

I suppose I could list a bunch of things about me and what I like to do. But what would that list worth if it simply reflects the life I had before I met you? If I like you, I'd like to think my list will expand at least a little bit every day.

Having said that here are some things you might find interesting -

I am an attorney in DC but I have a very reasonable work-life balance. Mostly what I want to do with my life is write. I'm working on a novel now. Also, I'd like to find a big bag of money and travel.

I think listening is the most underrated skill in just about every walk of life. I think intelligence is very sexy. I argue like a bulldog but never have a problem admitting when I'm wrong. I love my nieces and nephews and for whatever reason they seem to like having me around too. I'll watch a TV show's entire run straight through over time and if I really like the story telling, I'll watch it again. I'm doing this with Downton Abbey right now but I've also done this with Lost, Veronica Mars, Buffy, the Wire, and a few others. I taught in an inner city school and also served in the Army. I don't believe corporations are people.

I could go on but I suppose you should write me if you want me to tell you more. ;-)

What will I look for in you? I have no idea. Truly, I think finding out is one of the best parts. Drop me a line. Let's see what happens.

Interests:
Coffee and conversation, Dining out, Movies/Videos, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Nightclubs/Dancing, Performing arts, Playing sports, Volunteering, Wine tasting

For fun:

I write and read a lot. I watch and re-watch tv/movies to mine the good stories for storytelling tricks. I like go to places that have character. Impulse activities are the best.

Lately I've been exercising a lot more and I enjoy that too.
