Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The gauntlet, if you will:
I only respond to upgraded OKC users with a 4-year degree or
better. Bonus points if you tested into Mensa--I didn't.
"Down to earth"? "Here's the door."
Compulsive eaters won't like me either, cardiac diet of 1200
calories. Fresh meat, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables. After my 3rd
heart attack, I gained 100 pounds, and I am shedding it now. Also,
I am a veteran of the US Marine Corps; my self-motivation is
Eleven years ago, I retired after playing an active role in making
the world a better place (cue Superman theme), mainly trudging
around nuclear sites with a geiger counter looking for clues of
I also made common sense investments, and I enjoy life
If no one will watch Wheel Of Fortune with you because too often
you guess the phrase before *any* letters are revealed, then I
apologize for the pre-screening. Please, dear lady, read on.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have always been* and I will probably always be stuck in the 70s
to some degree. My life is 99% unstructured and I chase whatever
whim strikes me at the moment.
I won't claim I invented the phrase 'wake and bake' but I was
certainly an early adoptor. Anyway, while we're here, please take a
look to the right there. Where it says, "Drugs? Often"? That's weed
only for me. Everything else is a tad too hard on the heart.
* There was that period I served in a nuclear detachment with the
United States Marine Corps, but I believe that is balanced by my
time with the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission investigating
nuclear power plants and radiochemistry laboratories. Plus, I was a
total cokehead when I worked at the nuclear weapons plant in SC (US
Dept. of Energy, SRS).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
finding new experiences. Do you like a bit of chaos mixed into your
adventure? If you have smoked an entire joint on a comercial
trans-Atlantic jet, you know what I mean.
Dropping everything for a few weeks or a couple months and renting
a room in Berlin or Stockholm is my idea of fun. Wintering in BC
out of an RV? Tell me when to stop driving north.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do not wear a hairpiece.
I weigh well over 200 pounds, however I have lost 30 pounds with
this new therapy and after another 40 pounds, I can start weight
training for muscle mass again. I won't lie; I've had four heart
attacks and I gained over 100 pounds after the third, but it's
coming off now. Also, the condition causing the heart attacks has
been eliminated with no chance of returning.
I have little tolerance for bullshit. I don't waste a lot of time
fretting over politics, and for me, religion is politics.
I would much rather play guitar.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
You can talk me into seeing virtually any live performance. The
symphony? Local college production? Death metal concert? Yes, to
any one. Okay, after some arm twisting, I will include standup
comedy but only if the evening includes sushi at some point, but a
second date is unlikely.
Music: Everything but rap and xenophobe country. When I play
guitar, I have a fairly solid psychobilly sound.
Books: I have degrees in nuclear engineering, computer science, and
German literature (dead German mathematicians who published, "The
direct opposite of nihilism is doughnuts."), so, yes, I have
Food: I am a damn fine home-style cook, and I have broad tastes. I
could happily cook three meals a day, and maintain a kitchen every
day, for someone for the rest of my life. My favorite adventure is
going into an ethnic restaurant and ordering more or less at
random. I don't however do stunt foods.
Television: I do not own one.
Movies: For wannabe geeks.
Sports: Keeping the masses preoccupied.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cat, a guitar, my library, my music collection, and the
occasional good cigar.
#6. Singing silly cat songs. For instance,
♫ Cats wear hats but seldom flats,
they think heels are what appeals. ♫
to the tune of 'Both Sides Now'. You've been warned.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The evolution of the universe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Having sex with bondage and leather
is just not my sort of endeavour.
If you ask me to shag
with a whip and a gag,
I'll answer "not now and not ever".
-- stolen shamelessly
Some of my best friends are witches.
Chaotic neutral INTP.
I make yummy crabcakes.
I am not a material person nor am I spiritual, and I am hostile
toward politics and religion. With pride on all points.
I much prefer experiences.
My cat prefers porchetta over prosciutto. Can't say I
I like watching car races. I was born that way.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... in real life you may be one in a hundred, but on OKC you are
one in a thousand.
... you are a smart woman with venom.
... you have an unbounded curiosity.
... you play a musical instrument or sing, or you are in some way
creative, whether artistically or intellectually.
... you have bought into a poker game or tournament with $1000 or
more. Win or lose matters not.
... you noticed that my grammar and spelling are impeccable. You
also noticed that I do not slavishly subscribe to putting a comma
inside double quotes when placing it outside makes more sense. I
wrote my own grammar book, you know.
... you served five years or more in a federal prison or one year
in a foreign prison. You get the golden ticket. Your favorite meal
at your favorite restaurant (in your favorite city?) just to hear
... you only had to read all the Trivial Pursuit cards once to
memorize the answers. To this day, you consider that research, not
... you dropped acid in the 70s (or 80s (or 90s)).
... you will not drink Budweiser under any circumstance short of
someone threatening your offspring, and even then, you'd gag.
... you grow occasionally wistful at the long-cherished memory of a
chilly Saturday night with a quarter moon and a lukewarm bottle of
Boone's Farm. The state of your undergarments at the time shall
remain your secret.
... you posted something private in the question above, rather than
be a fuddy-duddy stick-in-the-mud. Saying "I'll tell you after we
meet" is not coquettish, merely intellectually lazy.
... you support hiking the minimum wage because that gives the
homeless fewer reasons to be anywhere near downtown Seattle. I lied
about the politics--fucking shoot me.
... your vices are only the tiniest bit beyond your control.
... you don't really give a fuck about any of this cuz you're gonna
have me regardless.
