"Warrior Poet": The Warrior-Poet is the several thousand-year-old tradition of dedication to developing the body and the mind as one. If that resonates with you, keep reading . . . I am (humbly) successful in my profession, self-sufficient and happy. I am constantly amazed by how much I lea from my 10 year old son. He keeps the world fresh and new in my eyes. He is one of my top priorities and my relationship with him is incredibly important to me. I travel to see him every month and it?s possible that I will re-locate to NY for a few years (until he goes away to college). I seek personal growth (spiritually, emotionally, physically and intellectually) and maintain health and energy so that I can enjoy life. I am looking for a special woman who is content and comfortable with her own life and is physically and emotionally available for a relationship. I love sports, art and my family. Bonding time is important to me whether it?s family dinners, holiday gatherings or attending my son?s soccer games. I love to listen and enjoy good conversation and am always up for a lively debate. I enjoy volunteering and helping those who need an extra hand. I keep active by running, cycling, swimming, lifting weights, tennis. I could benefit from an occasional workout partner for the days I need a little extra motivation to get to the gym. I usually eat clean, but I love good wine and a nice dinner out on occasion, especially for a good Asian or middle easte meal. A few non-negotiable items -- cats, smoking and (don't ask) grape jelly. I?ll fill you in on the grape jelly thing when we get to know each other a little better. Now, about you: I am attracted by a genuine smile, body language and eyes (or a very cool pair of sunglasses). She will tu my head if you are athletic and are not afraid to sweat (uh, I mean "glow"). Brunette or Aubu hair is a real-tu on, but blonde will do in a pinch. Intelligence, a quick wit, and the ability to have a conversation about almost anything really rope me in. I like a woman with a rewarding professional life; I am not looking for someone who wants to stay at home and make babies. Does this sound like you yet? A few more things?You want to take things at a reasonable pace; we introduce each other to our "secret single" habits slowly! You can sit next to me on a couch, each of us reading a book, completely comfortable with the silence. You give (and I promise you will also receive) awesome foot massages. I enjoy getting to know people, laughing, listening and talking, and am drawn to people with a strong desire to improve themselves. Even if things don?t work out romantically, you can never have too many friends. I hope you will be one of them.
