I'm 48, divorced, living in Charlotte for 18 years and the father of three beautiful children. I consider myself to be an eternal optimist. I strive to look at the brighter side of everything and focus on what is good in people. I try not to take life too seriously and have a good laugh every chance I get. I'm emersed in Torah, proverbs and good music. I believe that constant personal growth and developing relationships with friends and family is critically important. I try to set my expectations of myself and others at reasonable levels. I believe that expectations are premeditated resentments. I am sensitive to a fault, and a very compassionate person. I practice medicine and surgery so that might figure. I love anything outdoors and have many passions, but my primary focus is always my children, my work and health. I am a very loyal friend and will go the extra mile to help another person, even a stranger.
