I’m reasonably active… biking, hiking, golf, gym, etc., but I also cherish my "down-time", i.e., reading, writing, listening to music, relaxing with friends, messing around in my workshop, and hanging out at the local coffee shop (not a Starbucks) where I play chess, schmooze, and discuss current-affairs with the Armenians... stuff like that.
I’ve been practicing law (my own small general practice) for about 20 years now. It's often challenging and frequently frustrating - but ultimately it provides me with a reasonable living and a modicum of intellectual stimulation... so, all-in-all, I guess I’m relatively sated with my work.
I enjoy going to plays, concerts, arts and music festivals, browsing bookstores, weekend home improvement projects, and experimenting in the kitchen. I traveled quite a bit when I was younger and while the urge has diminished, I still like a decent adventure every once-in-a-while.
Ultimately, I'm on JDate to find my "life-partner/compan ion" - ideally a woman who is intelligent and focused, outgoing, hard working but low-stress, and attractive yet low-maintenance... (yes, that too :-). I'm not going to lie about the kids thing since the topic seems to come up on every first date... (1) neither of us is as young as we once were, (2) we're not getting any younger, and (3) I love children and wish I had them a long time ago... so, while it's still physically and financially an option, realistically having kids at this stage is neither essential nor optimal - in other words, if you are committed to having children, then that's also good with me, just so long as it happens before I'm so old that I want to take a nap more than they do - on the other hand, if you're OK without kids, then I can live with that too.
