I am an eternal optimist who loves living to the fullest. I have a good sharp humor, love dancing (ballroom and folk dance) and play bridge. I am an expert traveler and find interest in a deeper understanding of differences across cultures, religions and political systems. I also enjoy the fine little pleasures of life, quality movies, a touching song, a gentle caress. I aspire to master the "joie de vivre" (joy of living.) I'd like to be a better singer, writer, cook (nothing like a romantic dinner.) I cherish experiences far more than accumulating material possessions. People know me as an independent deep-thinker who does not fall for conventionality, traditions or "that's what people do." I have been wise and lucky to do it "my way" and succeed.
I am a "couple" person. This means that my relationship with my woman is central in my life. I believe in a lot of freedom and trust, mutual help to develop each others full potential, chase crazy dreams and fulfill life ambitions. For me true communication is vital. It is often challenging but always ends up being enriching. I am attracted to beauty and good looks but only a true connection counts to develop a relationship. I always had long relationships.
I am very social and love people. I love to talk, but love more to listen (and know how to). I am a good friend - empathetic, understanding and supportive.my partner, friends and family always feel that they are the center of my attention.
I've had a successful career in Educational research and consulting. I am not a therapist (never was.) Now I enjoy the freedom, security and opportunities it provided. My greatest challenge and reward has been raising my children (almost done..) to their very promising potential.
Now, I am looking for the ultimate partner for the best chapter of my life.
