A little about me...
Born & raised in Detroit w/many stops after college (it was the 60s and 70s) along the way - California, Afghanistan, India to name a few. I am an attorney by education, but gave it up over 25 years ago. Now have a business as a settlement consultant in the Hartford area.
I lost my bride last year after a 2 year bout with ALS and because there are no kids, life has taken a complete 180 degree turn. I live in what was to become our dream house in Old Saybrook and am starting to feel like a bird in a guilded cage, though I'd think it's time to start getting out a bit more. I still grieve, but there is no set formula I have encountered. I know I like being with people.
I am streetwise and said to be emotionally smart. My favorite TV series of all time were "The Wire" and "Six Feet Under." Favorite movies are "The Godfather I & II" and "The Shawshank Redemption" to name a few
About the one I'm looking for...
You need to be comfortable in your own skin and a happy person-with or without a partner. I'm not looking for a replacement. Qualities I admire most are kindness and and integrity. I am a sucker for a woman who looks good in a smile, though shallow enough to want to find some chemistry.
I also have to say that a twisted sense of humor is most likely a must and that the person I am looking for cannot be on the far right of the political spectrum - life is just way too short.
I'd just like to add...
"Money is not a substitute for character." - Nick the Greek
"Do whatever wrong thing you think is right." - Bob Helfman
"The only time I was ever wrong was one time I thought I was wrong." - Mr. Speck (8th grade math)
"Sometimes you get the best light from a burning bridge." - Don Henley
I really prefer speech to chatting, texting, tweeting or Email as I believe we are losing the nuance of speech at an exponential speed. I will make my phone number available should talking be acceptable.
