More About MeWILL DATE FOR CHINESE FOOD: Hello to the curious, the bored, the thorough, and of course the occasional Chinese restaurant owner, welcome! The first thing you need to know about me is that I have an enviously well endowed 5' flanking region in the polymorphic repeat sequence of my Arginine Vasopressin Receptor 1A. Good times......Ok, now that we got that out of the way, I'm a principled, affectionate, hardworking, passionate, fun-loving successful guy who knows what he wants and swears he can make you giggle on a highly frequent basis. On the outside I am kind of a big boy, a bit of a jokester, (you probably figured that out)—but Shhh! the secret is I am actually very introspective, serious, conscientious, and honest.......I am Passionate about ideas, travel, marketing, language, education, boxing, blues guitar, things that are well designed, consistency, quality, single malt whisky and of course‚—Chinese food. I also give awesome foot massages.......What do I do, did you ask? and Why was I out of the country for so long? Hmmm, well rumors include:—a deep cover post cold war spy career stationed near the Russian border in Lithuania. —An extended chronicling of native flora and fauna in the bush of Australia, — hard jail time in the infamous prisons of Sao Paulo Brazil for cocaine trafficking. — a successful career working my way up the ranks as a Muay Thai prize fighter in Thailand. —Abducted and brainwashed into service by Abu Sayyef islamic separatist guerillas in the Philippines........None of those are actually true, of course, but I have been to all of those places. So what then? I guess that's just for me to know and you to find out! (I did say I was kind of a big boy, didn't I?).......Hey you know what?.....I would love it if you would write me and tell me your best guess. Perhaps I'll even post some of the "winners" (anonymously of course) here in the future.......You know what's more?—The best answer wins a date! How's that?.....It doesn't even have to be Chinese food. You can pick the place. I'm looking for restaurant suggestions anyway! Write me!

Who I Would Like to MeetAfter roaming the globe for a really long time (since some of you were little girls), I have just returned to St. Louis—oh, just a few weeks ago. I'm currently having fun getting to know my city and being single again. If you would like to get on that bandwagon for any length of time and If you are an outgoing, optimistic, charismatic, smart (and a little smart-ass) woman with a streak of adventure who LOVES to laugh and is up for some exploration, good food, wine, music and learning, then you may just be the candidate we are looking for.nnEspecially if you:nnA. Think you know a lot about something(s) interesting I might want to learn. (Or, Substitute: Want to learn about something(s) interesting you think I know.) Be a lifelong learner and a teacher.nnB. Are an excellent Cook!nnC. Looked up what that Vasopressin Receptor thing was all aboutnnD. Are just too adorable/stunning/sexy to be refusednnE. Some combination of all the above.nn(Pssst! The correct answer is "E". And at risk of being labeled as very narrow minded, you got to hit the gym and be fit, it's just my lifestyle and hence what I'm attracted to.)

Life GoalsI enjoy starting businesses, using my energy and creativity to build lasting value. If I can look back and say "I tried a lot, I achieved a lot, I enjoyed great freedom, I travelled the World, and I did it without compromising my integrity" I'd call that success.
Secretwouldn't be very secretive then, now would it?
