Timothy Smith , 54,
Male seeking Female,
Dating StatusCurious & careful with a truly twisted sense of humor
More About MeFormer teen actor, military policeman, hotel manager, taxi cab driver, real estate junkie property manager and broker who somehow evolved into a middle aged, sustainable, green, architectural design, planning & finance real estate junkie, slightly cynical perhaps, yet optimistic or deluded enough to believe he can make a positive difference in this incredibly beautiful, albeit incredibly screwed up world of ours. A man who treasures true friendships, and truly loves people, NYC, jazz, really good food & music, classic architecture, making nice women smile, and is still constantly amazed at the many different ways to have fun with one, special, considerate woman. People's true life stories are so much richer, more interesting and funnier than anything a writer could dream up, but I still love good novels & movies. I remember my late, great grandmother telling me as a teenager that I was a romantic. As a man I'm now described as a "hopeless romantic & idealist"; so I guess there must be some slight truth to it. I'm not really so sure about the concept of speed dating. In my life I have found very few things done quickly with women pleasurable. Well, here goes.
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesReading, history, political volunteering, eating out, concerts, looking at old buildings, classic architecture meeting interesting people.
Political Affiliationliberal democrat everyone deserves healthy, prosperous quality of life, not just millionares and corporations.
Who I Would Like to MeetI guess my ideal woman would be an honest, caring, intellectual nymphomaniac with a PHD, that likes children and dogs, who just happens to be a liberal democrat, who just happens to have an elderly relative who owns wholely, or in part a bookstore, a chinese and italian restuarant, a champagne vineyard, cognac distillery, and a real estate investment trust if that's not asking too much.
