Here is what I am passionate about (in no particular order): 1) Being a role model of integrity, honor, ingenuity and perseverance. 2) Always knowing the difference between what I have a right to do and what is the right thing to do. 3) Never being too stubborn to admit when I am wrong or contributed, even fractionally, to a problem. 4) Stewarding my son's life so that he continues to be a man of honor. 5) Earning the ongoing love, adoration and lust of my partner by giving her fresh reasons to fall in love with me. 6) Enjoying a really good meal, book, film, bottle of wine, or a really dirty joke. 7) The right of the Jewish people to have a secure national homeland. 8) Becoming so good on the electric guitar that someday I get invited to sit in with bands. 9) Grilling and cooking and making my kitchen the "go to" spot. 10) Taking care of myself physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. 11) Being the best dog daddy EVER. 12) Being a gentleman when my gut tells me to throttle someone. 13) Negating the actions of douchebags whenever reasonable. 14) The right of all people, regardless of sexual orientation, to marry, no matter how poorly they choose their partners. 15) Erasing the idea that human goodness/worth belongs to only one political party, faith or group. We are all Americans. 16) The quality of education at every level and age. 17) The use of technology to improve learning. 18) Awareness of, and preparation for unforeseen business disruptions (what I am doing professionally). 19) Being polite to everyone who writes me, but beyond thanking someone for writing, stay away from those without pictures. They may be people with something to hide. 20) Manners count. The beauty of any woman can be erased by poor manners. Women who lack class are a poor match for me. 21) Proper grammar and pronunciation. It's 'vice versa' not 'vica versa'. Eye find it ironical how many women have to literally axe me about basic grammar rules. Oh, and 22) Dating within my general age range. I'm flattered that women across a wide age spectrum find me somewhat appealing, however, I am best paired with my peer group. Not to offend my fellow 50-something men, but this is not 'take your daughters to work' day!
Now about you:
I'll make it simple: Be the kind of woman who cherishes someone like the person described above love life, laugh a lot, be smart, have some gravitas, have more than a casual interest in telling the truth, be creative, be proactive, have a thirst for knowledge, flourish while being heart-centric, be passionate in every room of the home, and have the emotional maturity to value others without losing your core. I like nice. Naughty too, but first, be nice.
You get bonus points for: intellectual and romantic boldness, independence, pulchritude, driving like a Chicagoan, swearing in more than one language, inventiveness when leaving dirty text messages, checking that you sent the dirty text message to the intended receiver.
