I like to help people but find it difficult to ask for it. Well, unless I'm asking for directions. Contrary to most guys I have no problems pulling over to a gas station and asking for directions as I get lost easily.
I love music but can't carry a tune to save my life. I like dogs but cats more and I love to read about finance, the economy and world events.
I don't have to have the closest parking spot, I don't have to be first in line, I don't need to have the biggest house and I don't want to have the biggest car. I go out of my way to recycle, bus to work, volunteer when I can, and I'm slow to anger.
I'm afraid that I'm not a foodie. Of course I have my weaknesses but generally if it's easy, quick and especially healthy then I'm usually good.
In the end I'm on here looking for a new relationship but certainly won't turn away a new friend or activity partner. I'm too old to have kids but if you have them that's great. If not, that's fine too. I tend to move slowly on the first few dates as I prefer to be friends first.
I am [kind], [honest], laid back and I like to take things casually.
I mainly read non-fiction stuff like current events, history, finance, business, investing. Boring I know, but I like it. MLK is my hero.
Shawshank Redemption, The Jerk, Blazing Saddles, Trading Places, Airplane! and flicks like Predator and Aliens...
World events. Especially in the Middle East.
The national debt, the dollar, the markets, real estate, economic recovery.
Oil paintings and other art.
If I should get a new pet.
Lately I've been wondering if Lady Gaga might ever tour with the Goo Goo Dolls. I think they should. I figure they could call it the Gaga Goo Goo tour. Infants would get in free.
Also, why can't people with high blood pressure just give blood a lot? Wouldn't that work?
Do they really need to put a sticker on every stinkin' piece of fruit in the grocery store? Really? They mess with my Rainier cherries and I'm writing a letter.
How happy I'll be the first time I actually remember to bring my re-useable bag into the grocery store rather than leaving it in the car.
I got beat in 5 moves by a six year old in chess once. Now he did go on to finish in the top 7 for his age group at the state tournament so then I felt much better. (Not really.)
I think I'm becoming an apple snob. (The fruit, not the computer.) Fuji's rule.
I still have a flip phone. I know, I know...
(That was a joke attempt--just to be clear. Just email me if you want.)
