To my dear future mate, I want you to know the following: There is no form of ignorance of which I'm proud, so I seize every opportunity to improve my skills, learn new ones, and educate myself about topics and fields of study that interest me or might enhance the lives, loves, passions, and laughter of those around me. I love to teach (for two years, I taught Unitarian Sunday School to 4th-6th-graders) both formally and informally. I'm an avid book and journal reader. Conversations that excite me most are about facts and ideas, not things, and certainly not celebrities or prices of homes, cars, or luxury goods. I strive to conduct my life according to Unitarian-Universalist principles (please Google “UUA”). I love classical music and play (and on occasion have taught) classical piano. I am politically active as a progressive Democrat in a reality-based community, and that is a core value. Yes, the calendar says I'm fifty-eight years old, but my attention to exercise, healthy eating, association with young people (especially my seven-year-old son!), and overall zest and passion place my perceived and apparent age at about forty-five. I'm a native New Englander of Irish ancestry, imbued with a New Englander’s notorious dry wit and quirky sense of humor. I have a passionate and very romantic personality. I am a devoted gentleman who will respect you to your core and always do my best to make you feel deeply loved and very happy. We live in paradise at the tip of a narrow peninsula in Newport Beach, California. The Pacific Ocean with its gorgeous sandy beaches is behind our home, and Newport Harbor is in front. We can launch kayaks from our home and tour the bay for hours, stopping for beach picnics whenever the mood suits us. I especially enjoy the company of Vietnamese people. I love the culture of respect for family, nurturing children, and a peacefully-paced life that nonetheless is full with accomplishments. I love Vietnamese cuisine with its fresh ingredients cooked to preserve textures and flavors, then accompanied by broths and sauces that fill me with wonder and admiration. Will you please join my son and me in this peaceful and love-filled life? We need you!

My future beloved, I tell you the following with respect and love, and I wish I could do so in person: I need you to have the skill to place your mind and eyes outside yourself, perceive how your behavior affects those around you, and successfully change your behavior if its effect is undesirable. I have that skill, and I use it almost constantly (psychologists call it "externalizing the ego"). If I ever seem to have lost that skill, I'm broken, so please tell me to get myself fixed. At a mutually comfortable pace, I would like to develop an increasingly intimate friendship with you, my one soulmate. I am beginning now. Sometime in 2013, I would like my son, you, and me to live our lives as a family suffused with love, respect, reflexive kindness, loyalty, and devotion to each others' personal development and happiness. I want him to witness mutual respect, laughter, and openly passionate affection between you and me so he never settles for less in his own love life. My very bright and affectionate seven-year-old son has grown up as an only child, so it would be nice for him to have a close sibling. The easiest adjustment for him would be a blended family with a boy or girl between five and eleven years old, but that is not a requirement: you are welcome in our lives with or without your own children. If you have children, I will revere them as my own. I always enjoy learning more about other cultures, especially their cuisine. I would like you to be a slender, emotionally mature and stable, educated, passionately affectionate, and fit lover who is eager to teach my son and me. With your help, we will strive hard to learn your ancestral languages. I especially enjoy the company of Vietnamese people. I love the culture of respect for family, lovingly nurturing children to do their best, and a peacefully-paced life that nonetheless is full of accomplishments. I have a lot to learn from you, so you will have my respect not only as my mate, but also my revered teacher. If this is a life that will make you happy, please contact me). I eagerly look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!
