A little about me...
Respect both ways is a requirement. There is no possibility of me getting “old”, I have too much life in me and I would expect a partner would be similar. I feel that men and women age at different rates, and my aging has slowed enormously as I embrace the things that I should always have been doing (eating stuff that doesn’t poison me, being very fit, exercising my mind every day, finding out something new every day, being fascinated by the complexity (and bizarreness) of the universe), and I hope that she has similar attitudes. I keep very fit and find that even people in their thirties can't keep up with me. Intellectually I'm at the top. I spent twenty years as a chair professor in two universities, but I gave it up to start a company here. So yes, I'm still in to risk taking, life is too short for it to be boring, but the risks I take are informed. I actually call five different cities (on five different continents) home. I'm old school with values that respect people, treat ladies as ladies, am absolute about honesty and keeping to the high moral ground.
One more thing - I have a wicked sense of humor. I enjoy comedy and light-hearted repartee, in fact it seems to me to be an essential part of life.
About the one I'm looking for...
Slim, no (or few) hang-ups. Able to appreciate other cultures and viewpoints. Ideally she has interests in a wide range of things, and enjoys discussion of them at a high level. She will be someone who has her own interests, respects that I have mine yet is willing to at least share, and be open about her interests. Respect both ways is a requirement. . Loyalty is perhaps the most important thing to me – we all go through difficult times, but when the chips are down loyalty is axiomatic. I come from a very long-lived family and keep everything at a high level (physicality, intellectual and wanting to "find out" about everything. This gets me into trouble all the time (but it also creates a dynamic and fun environment), but if you want to have that journey with me it’ll be fun. If you have hang-ups that would stop you from the unconventional then please don’t reply.
I'd just like to add...

My Top Interests:
I play squash and I watch soccer. I have been an English soccer fan for a very long time. I have been to two world cup finals, I have been to Wembley and the Bernabeu. But for all that I support Leeds United. Eight years of misery.
Family and Friends
I have two grown up sons. I am very close to them. I was a single parent for 10 years. My parents live in Queensland and I am also close to them. We are a very long lived family, Even though they are grown up I support my boys through the difficult times, and they support me through mine. What parent could ask for more than that?
While I don't like the process of travel any more, I enjoy being in different places and interacting. Last year I visited Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Brasil and Spain. I speak at least some of the languages in all those countries, apart from New Zealand (70 million of them with white coats on).
