Dining out






in his own words...

I'm a writer and musician, and a generally happy though very intense man (so I'm told). A lifelong leftie who started out as an antiwar activist in the 1960s and never looked back. Still a lot of hippy in me. I look way younger than my age, and probably act like it too. It's been two years since I was divorced so I'm finally feeling safe and confident seeking dates and relationships. And I'm not your typical DC guy. I was raised in Japan and Korea and didn't move to the US until I had finished high school. I've been in DC since 1983, when I moved here from San Francisco to work as a magazine editor. Since then I've worked primarily as a journalist and a writer; I'm currently working for a union that represents federal employees. I was gone from DC for three years - 2005 to 2008 - when I lived in Memphis and Northern California, and am now back for good. Please note: I'm definitely NOT interested in a long-distance relationship; been there, done that, and it's just too complicated. My greatest accomplishment was writing a book (about the privatization of intelligence) that was published in 2007; I've appeared frequently on radio and sometimes TV talking about my work. I'm also a singer/guitarist and play occasionally at open mics in DC. Who am I looking for? Well, I'm attracted to women who are committed to social change and appreciate all forms of culture. And if you're an activist of some kind, that will double my interest. But I'm not grim and determined as a lot of lefties are; I love music, both listening and playing, read lots of fiction, and spend lots of time in museums. I'm big on Twitter and post numerous times a day. I desire someone who's smart and funny and eager and willing to engage intellectually. But also someone who likes to have fun! I think I'm a pretty good conversationalist, and would want to start any dating relationship with relaxed talks at quiet bars or restaurants where we could explore our interests and talk about ou
