Well, I've learned never to say to a woman that she is wearing sensible shoes. I've discovered that I wear about one-fifth of my wardrobe over and over, so why did I buy the rest? I've realized that some quick decisions, like buying my Prius, turn out much better than things I consider with great care. hm.
I suppose I could say that I'm a good-natured professor. I'll treat you well and create romance when you're down and hope that you will do the same. I'm confident, loyal, attentive, normal, and communicative-I'm passionate about my career but I also aim to strike a healthy balance in life. I teach students about international security and foreign policy and sometimes go to Washington DC or abroad to do research and consult. In my free time, I like to enjoy the better things in life such as world travel, art exhibits, dancing, cafe chit chat, sporting events, and time at one of VA's or NC's great beaches--
On the physical side, I keep in fairly good shape and my build is athletic-muscular. I can be active or laid back, though I'm not a type to run five miles a day.
My career is very good, and I'm now looking to meet someone right, and I don't mind much if I have to go a distance to meet new people. In my view, at least, a good long distance relationship beats a so-so one close to home. Where there is a will, there is a way, as they say. My favorite quote: "The heart has reasons that reason does not know." (Pascal) My favorite band is: "U2." I can listen to "Streets with No Name," and "One" over and over again. I was actually stopped two times, in California and Belize, and asked if I was "Bono." I should have said "yes." I will give out an autograph, next time.
