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 where I play chess, schmooze, and discuss current-affairs... 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. My ambition is to bank enough gelt to be able to reduce my case-load so that I can segue into teaching undergraduate History and Political Science.
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 crave 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 and daring, ambitious but low-stress, and attractive yet low-maintenance... (too much to ask?). Since the topic seems to come up on every first date... Yes, I love children and wish I had them a long time ago. So, if you are still up for having children, then heck yes - COUNT ME IN (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'm OK with that too.
