Searching from Pole to Pole for Mrs. Claus
Note: Even if you don't
consider yourself my potential "Mrs. Claus," we might still
enjoy getting together, so if you see anything of interest here please let me
Important Disclaimer: For the basic Visitor -- i.e., "My Elves" -- due to some slight lack of vigor these days I can no longer guarantee the hearty robust sex of years past. †If long impassioned intercourse in all positions imaginable is your primary interest, definitely pass me by. †From my current standpoint, fondling you, and you me, might be adequate. †Come on over and let's do whatever we can. †Jingle each otherís bells some.
Question: Why is Santa so often smiling?
Answer: Because he knows where the naughty ones are.
Note on above paragraphs: Women tell me that nearly every guy my age out there wants the exact same thing. †Gosh, what a coincidence! †You say you go through two or three month cycles with this sort of man before he invariably is set to move on to his next "girl." †You're extremely tired of playing Elf.... †Okay, okay already, I hear ya. †With me it's, uhh, like, waay, waay different....
All the rest below is addressed to my possible Mrs. Claus:
I'm Nicholas. †As in Saint Nicholas. †As in Santa Claus. †If you don't believe, perhaps just play along... but, of course, far better to believe....
My background includes lots of world travel, US Peace Corps, teaching economics and English overseas, extensive economics study (master's degree+, Ohio State University Ph.D. program), Third World development, philosophy, sociology, the arts, chess, computers, thousands of programs across the spectrum, encounters with hundreds of women, and, of course, the stock market.
My life consists of examining and interpreting the economy in a broad sense, and analyzing/trading securities (primarily stocks and options). †Buy low, sell higher, short-term, based on complex mathematical systems (1 + 1... plus 1 more) I developed. I work from my quiet study, work only for myself with my personal account, and like calling all the shots.
My place is a cozy cocoon of multiple computers, many monitors, white boards, shelves, desks, books, graphs, charts, stuff... all continually suffused with Internet-streaming Classical music from Switzerland, J.S.Bach (God) considered way best, but also enjoy Handel, Beethoven, Mozart (Wolfie), Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky (Pete), Scarlatti, Chopin (Fred), DvorŠk, Rachmaninoff, Satie, and so many more. †Love the sound of a rich, full concert grand.
I'm intelligent, questioning, interested.
My income source (i.e., the market) is abundant, and portable. †I can live anywhere in this wide world that I choose. †My base income is from a semi-retirement annuity. †All additional income is acquired through active on-line trading, with everything that entails. †No thrill on earth I've so far experienced beats my position greatly spiking in value exactly as I was anticipating. †Definitely a rush.
I was married to a medical doctor (psychiatrist with added fellowship specialization) for 20 years, and helped establish her successful practices in the various places we've lived (Philippines, Taiwan, Ohio, Indiana, Utah). †We have one daughter, a truly exemplary individual, highly educated in the best schools, completed her Masterís degree at Stanford, and will start her PhD studies at Berkeley soon. †Our family has always had golden retrievers as pets, plus all sorts of other animals. †In Indiana we had a huge home with plenty of wooded land on a large private lake. †Pretty close to ideal. †Except for one thing....
....My wife and I were, quite frankly, NEVER on the same page throughout our marriage, with little doubt a bad match. †When our daughter grew old enough, my wife decided it was time to split. †We divorced in 2001.
MY GOAL AND VISION:
So..., with the above two paragraphs in mind, my goal and vision in finding the true Mrs. Claus is: friendship, short-term and long-term partnership, companionship, fellowship, connection, open and honest communication, commitment, loyalty, soul buddies, synergy, journey travel mates, and most assuredly Santa's better half. †Quite the amazing woman, to say the least. †One in a billion. †The love of my life. †Hopefully for the rest of my days.
Mrs. Claus ideally has these characteristics:
--- IQ at least 150 (or equivalent), and firing on all cylinders (particularly with respect to logic and mathematics; must appreciate and understand the nature of securities trading and economics fundamentals)
--- Education at least Master's, preferably Ph.D. (in the sciences)
--- Exceptional reading skills. Voracious reader, anything and everything.
--- More Spiritual than Religious (Big Mind, Buddha nature, Outside-the-Box thinking)
--- Height 5'5 to 5'9 (it just seems to work so much better for both of us)
--- Weight less than 155 (respect for body and health, physical ability to do lots of things)
And guess what? †This is merely the START. †Ultimately it's necessary that we be on the "same page," about pretty much everything. †I'm looking for optimal dovetailing. †It's that important.
(Additional Note On Criteria List:
Okay, I've received so many complaints about my list above, it's obvious I had best clarify. †I recognize that it's unlikely all mentioned criteria will be found in any real woman. †Mrs. Claus is a real-life person. †She's not an abstract summation of specifications. †It's your particular totality that is key.)
If the description of who I am in this entire Profile genuinely clicks with you -- in your gut -- and the above characteristics more or less describe you, we should certainly get in touch. †Let's explore each other further through Instant Messenger. †My Yahoo IM is running 24/7/365.
Sincere and warm regards.

Presently focused on further refining my trading strategies.† Financial security is important to me.† I'd like to have enough in my accounts to feel completely at ease for the rest of my days.
Apparently I was born with an above-average brain. It has served me well, absorbed quite a lot over the last 5+ decades, and continues to function better than ever.† A great blessing.
A lot of confidence. I tend to sit front and center at whatever occasion.† Best table in the restaurant.† Almost always ask questions of speakers, or audiences. †But may come off as a little arrogant at times, and smarter than others.
I'm a readaholic. A quality selection of books in physical form. But tens of thousands in pdf and ebook
form.† Favorites? Chekhov,
Movies I've enjoyed: Spy Games, Redford and Pitt. Princess Bride is a classic -- "As you wish..." Recent ones, Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Dark Knight Rises, Killer Joe (whoa!).
Don't care for TV except Charlie Rose and a little CNN.
Music mentioned in profile above.† Bottom line, J.S.Bach.
Food, healthful, yogurt, nuts, fresh juices.† I'm not a food fan.
Love, sex, money....† And consistently.† That's about it.
Purpose.† Why am I here.† The advent of man, however long ago.† The vastness of space and the universe.† Time. Billions and billions of years.† Toward what end.
Weekends = restaurants, activities, errands.† Out there somewhere.† Otherwise, just the same old stuff, me working away in my cocoon.† Always some 'project' to pursue.
Hmmm. I regularly go to "thrift" stores.† Multiple purposes.† Don't really need anything.† But a habit, opportunity to stretch my legs, and look around.† I'll end up spending a few dollars to fill some obscure niche, often thinking outside the box.
Good grief, woman.† You made it this far?† Why in hell did you do that??
Okay, whatever. Contact me if:
Most importantly, if you are a possible Mrs. Claus.
Secondly, if you are a prospective Elf.
