Most people will cite "Chemistry" as starting point for a meaningful relationship... I'm thinking Beyond Chemistry... Way Beyond...

He likes to engage his friends and family with rigorous, theoretical and broad discussions that can be highly entertaining and informative.
He seeks a mind mate. He likes individuals who want to play with abstract ideas and explore the complex ways the world works.
A few excerpts from his personality test:
- I am willing to take risks to do what I want to do
- I tend to be cautious, but not fearful
- I have no trouble making a choice, even when several alternatives seem equally good at first
in his own words...
I am bemused by the number of people coming onto match.com advertising for The Love of Their Life, when, what they really want is a movie date, company in the kitchen or the bedroom, maybe even a dog... Someone who fits their current pattern of doing things... Granted, when you start piling on the decades, it's pretty easy to fall into habits and become set in your ways. I'm as guilty as any other middle-aged professional. We may think we're open to falling in love, to that special feeling of walking on air, but are we really? Could we deal with being possessed by love, the feeling that our lives - our very sense of who were are in the world - could change dramatically? Do we like the not-entirely-comfortable vulnerability that comes with that? How much easier then to follow the patterns we know: Coffee at Starbucks. A movie date. Dinner in North Beach. Shake hands afterwards. A gentile hug. Perhaps a peck on the cheek... I admit I've met a number of awfully nice people online, started dating relationships, and I'm happy to do that again. I've kept my expectations in check and have never been disappointed. If all we're doing is running patterns with each other, then it doesn't really matter what we look like or how many match.com check boxes we may have in common. Dinner will be fine and we'll have things to talk about... But there's this possibility I keep on forgetting about, the possibility of falling in love. What could I do or say that would encourage you to fall madly in love with me? What kind of magic do you possess that would encourage me to believe I was a teenager again, that I could be something/someone other than who I've been, that all of life's wonderful possibilities are wide open to us again... or is that to much to ask of relationship begun on match.com? I'm willing to find out if you are...
