My description:

"Even after all this time, the sun 

never says to the earth 'You owe me'.

Look what happens with a love like that.

It lights the whole sky."

- Hafez


That's me!  Howdy!  I value kindness, caring, compassion, non-dogmatic spirituality, &, more concretely, beloved friends, family, children & all animals. 

AND... both seriousness and silliness!!

Let's start with the deepest Truth: Gomez & Morticia Addams have the perfect relationship. THINK about it: They play all the time, only have eyes for each other, keep the creative fires smoldering, trust one another, & after all their years together, their romantic/erotic connection is still VERY alive!


In real life, I have lived & had great, great love & a great, great conscious loving relationship, so I know it is real & palpably, utterly possible, & utterly wonderful.

Hi! I'm Marcus. I'm a personal growth counselor­ & writer in the beautiful green W. Mt. Airy / Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia.  After having lived in wonderful places across the U.S. & beyond (Boulder, CO, Manhattan, Boston, the Galilee in Israel & right on the eastern Mediterranean coast, as well as Maine & -- of all places -- Washington, D.C.!), & then moving to Philly 18 years ago, I discovered I love it right Here.

I love my work & my students & clients, & the ocean & the beach, hiking & walking, children, dogs & cats & ALL animals (from wolves & wolf puppies to groundhogs to penguins -- including the goofy, sweet groundhogs right here in Philadelphia!)
, writing, my fireplace, playfulness, open communication, my daily morning practice, lived/embodied spirituality, music, meditating, reading, pranayama/breathwork, nature/creation & creativity, dance, movies from It's A Wonderful Life & The King's Speech to Kurosawa to Office Space, laughter, & a good sense of humor.  I'm happy from the center out. When that's true of BOTH people, a great life together is ours. 

I value honesty, integrity, courage, compassion, caring, kindness, presence, thoughtfulness, & play - & I have them to give!  I'm passionate; & I'm grateful for what I have.  That includes amazing, trusted, loving, lifelong friends & close family. 


I am 140 lbs, 5'6", & toned. In the past I've had 3 long-term relationships with women who are taller than me; & I share this because, in finding the 1, singular woman to share the rest of our long & happy lives together, I don't care if you're taller or shorter than me. Just be you. 

P.S. Oh, and if you can forgive me for the egregious overuse of ampersands throughout the above, we may really have something.  

P.P.S. Wanna work out & get in better shape together?!!  If you want a workout partner, I'm your man.


You are spiritual, genuine, warm, grounded, fun, loving, playful & happy, & ready for true, lasting partnership. You know & love yourself (totally different than egotism/narcissism), value your own soul / creative essence, & know how to be close-&-connected & NOT give up yourself. Of COURSE you're 'imperfect'. Who isn't?! And you're wonderful. As you Are. We share honesty, kindness, laughter, great minds, adventure & passion, & our chemistry & attraction are great. AND we also just LIKE each other. The friendship between us is as strong & potent as the Eros & romance. We keep growing in friendship & trust because we both know how to be present & there for our selves & each other. When you have that, that willingness to open, the hottest chemistry & sparks go even deeper, & can last for a lifetime of fulfilling commitment & (no, this is NOT an oxymoron!) Hot Monogamy.  

But 1st things 1st! We both want real, live, in-person connecting - really finding our mate - not online chat. So I've just upgraded here, for now, to be able to write you and not just to "wink" you back if you can only "wink" me.  Let's communicate and share a brief, fun phone call that may lead to a relaxed, no-pressure & (okay, yeah) completely life-changing 1st meeting.  

(You can't rush a sunrise. True. But wow can you enjoy it!)
