in his own words...

I take dating seriously and I don't get into romantic relationships casually. I want romance, sensuality and all the rest, but not at the expense of laying the groundwork for deep friendship and commitment. I was married a long time and I have spent a lot of time and effort un-marying. I work well with my children's mother. At the same time, although I grew up in Bethesda, I only recently returned to DC so I am looking for local friends who have time for simple friendship, keeping in touch, have dinner, hiking, kayaking, sailing, going dancing or to concerts, talking...... I value every person I meet or date. My daughter (11) and son (14) are a focus right now but I have a lot of energy for both friendship and romance. I just started a new job and I don't have any vacation time built up so I won't be doing a lot of travel this year. Dating is new to me.

I don't want a quick fix and would rather be single than indulge in half-hearted relationships or a string of hot romances that cool off just as quickly. I will be getting my 17' Oday Day Sailor down from Vermont and getting out and sailing this summer. I plan on going canoeing or kayaking further upstream on the Potomac as well. I do plan to spend a week of my vacation time volunteering as a counselor for adolescent boys at a camp in the Shenandoah. I did this last year and want to see my crew 'graduate'. This winter I hope to get some skiing in, telemark downhill or back country out in West Virginia at Canaan Valley and White Grass. Over the last 6 months, I have lived for Contra dancing. I even dragged my kids to join me at a dance camp weekend. Th
