What can I say. Despite all the global economic and political chaos surrounding us in this world, life is still beautiful! Of course, so many things in life, like movies, Thai food, bike rides, coffee, and rock climbing are even better when shared. I have a very successful software consulting business that serves international banks, and gives me the opportunity to travel the globe.
I am looking for people who are exuberant about life and want to soak up everything it has to offer. And who knows. Maybe in the process I'll come across 'the one'. And then time will stop...and a new chapter will begin in my life.

And now for the results...
If you scored below zero, then please continue searching. I doubt very much we would connect, though if you are a talented actress, I may still cast you in one of my films.
If you scored between 60 and 140, we could have something to work with but it would be best for both of us if we keep looking.
If you scored between 145 and 275, please write me asap! :)
If you scored 280, you are either perfect, or vastly delusional (likely the latter). Don't bother writing me.
If you scored above 280, you can't add! It just won't work between us.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First date: A coffee at 49 Parallel, or Crema.
Second Date: Bike ride, hike, or yoga session. If you are into snowboarding, we can make it a day at Whistler (I have a few guest passes to Whistler for this season)
[update: I've been getting a few negative comments about the above format. Please know that there is more to it than may initially seem on the surface, but I can't reveal all until there is a dialogue]
