Member Overview

I'm an American academic and author who first came to China in 2012 and stayed until the end of 2015. I've lived in Changchun, Beijing, Lanzhou, and Zhuzhou. I traveled around the country during the spring of 2017 (and visited Guiyang and Kunming--I liked both) but ultimately decided it wasn't the r...
I'm an American academic and author who first came to China in 2012 and stayed until the end of 2015. I've lived in Changchun, Beijing, Lanzhou, and Zhuzhou. I traveled around the country during the spring of 2017 (and visited Guiyang and Kunming--I liked both) but ultimately decided it wasn't the right time to return to China. I'm currently exploring opportunities to work with a Chinese educational institution or company. So here's how I'm inclined to introduce myself here/today in a rather coy, subjective manner. I am: discursively/linguistically playful (as evidenced in these phrases), cerebrally & physically fit, culturally & conversationally literate/competent, spiritually & mindfully aware (through meditation), compassionately & empathetically sensitive, gastronomically snobbish (more so in the American context because most Chinese people are "foodies"). I enjoy lively conversation, reading (I am a bibliophile), intellectual discovery, physical activity (hiking, dog-walking, bicycling, badminton & squash and all racquet sports), cooking, binge-watching movies and streaming series. I'm well-traveled, experienced in encountering different cultures, and competent in navigating cultural scenarios. I have lived and worked abroad for over eight (8) of the past 16 years (five years in England and most recently, three years in China). But in recent years I've become more of a "home-body" than a social butterfly. I prefer a quiet, relaxed, contemplative atmosphere. I've been divorced for 18 years and have lived alone since then and so I'm comfortable with my own company and with my deep companionship with my two great dogs--Sadie & Buddy--who teach me to focus on living in the present moment. To quote the famous American actor Bill Murray: "I'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog when it doesn't like a person."

As a Sapiophile, I'm attracted to someone who is engaging, versatile, curious, reflective, confident, compassionate, and adventurous who feels comfortable in her own skin. I am searching for a lifetime partner/wife whose passion, values, spirit enlivens all of my senses and makes me want to be a better, more spiritual person. I am not desperate to be in a relationship as I rather enjoy my own company. I am very willing to wait to discover a relationship with a kindred spirit that has depth, meaning and mutual trust--a woman who is worth the wait! Even at the advanced age of 58, I remain a "work-in-progress" and cherish the daily opportunity to learn more about myself and the world and would like a partner who sees herself in a similar manner.

More About Me

Favorite Movie:

Way too many favorites for this movie buff! It depends on the time and mood.

Favorite Book:

Again, way too many favorites to declare just one.

Favorite Food:

I have loved eating Chinese food while in China the past 1 1/2 years. As a creature of habit, however, I am also fond of Italian, French, Mexican and American cuisines (and I am very adept at cooking these).

Favorite Music:

Jazz, blues, and classical

Dress Style:

I dress more formally than most Chinese men. At work I usually wear suits or sport coats and often with ties. During the cold Changchun winters I'm forced to wear a couple of layers of clothing and usually wear jeans and sweaters. And on weekends, I tend to wear athletic clothing with ball caps.

Hobbies & Interests:

I have been active in sports throughout my childhood and adult life. As a younger man I played baseball and basketball and in more recent years, I have been an avid squash (British racquet sport), racquetball (American racquet sport), badminton, and bicycling. I've been an avid reader all of my life and I love to cook (western food) and watch movies.
