In His Own Words

About him

Mark Twain once wrote that the difference between using the right words and using the almost-right words is like the difference between being struck by lightning or a lightning bug. Perhaps the same could be said about meeting the right person ... and the almost-right person. Probably like you, I have chased lightning bugs, and once or twice been struck by lightning. On the other hand, perhaps the right person is not the one who dazzles, burns up in one brilliant flash, and then fades forever ... but the one who will work with you to build a steady fire, that keeps you both warm, all through the night ... in fact, through many, many nights.

Somewhere lies the right blend of friendship, romance, intellectual companionship, and passion. So, let's sit back ... stoke the fire ... show me your mind ... share your thoughts and your heart ... and enjoy the warmth .... "Come...," says Browning's Rabbi Ben Ezra, "The best is yet to be." And, Oh yes, we will make that fire sizzle.

One of my favorite evenings would be to cook a nice dinner together (remember the slogan, "Getting there is half the fun"? By the time dinner is ready, we've worked together, laughed together, rubbed elbows, and begun to get to know each other). After dinner, if you enjoy poetry, I'd love to read some to you (I used to teach English at the University of Maryland); if not, let's snuggle up and enjoy a good movie. In fact, as we grow together, we'll snuggle the way they vote "down home" -- early and often.

In the summers I enjoy a day at the beach (which is always better when shared with a special person). Perhaps, soon, you?
So I look forward to the possibility of getting to know you and the woman you really are ... what you like ... what you love (and, come to think of it, I might like to become part of the latter).

If something you've just read resonates in your soul, contact me...

About his ideal match

"Ideal" is a target; it is probably not a realistic expectation. However, that target relationship, for me, includes a vibrant mix of friendship, affection, caring, passion. And probably 14 other things that I assume but haven't adequately articulated. It means wanting for you even better than I want for myself. It means being "at your back" to protect you from what I can realistically protect you from, and feeling confident that you're at mine. It means washing your back in the shower. It means being glad that there is a smile in your eyes as you open them in the morning and blink at me, and wanting you to sense the same in mine. The ideal mate? The woman committed to a compatible idea(l) and willing to put in the hard work (magic is nice when it appears, but you can only count on it at Disneyworld) to build it.
