Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've gotten pretty far in the 60+ years I've been around, but I
think I'm going to need another 30 or so to finish.
I'm happy with my life for the most part. I have life long friends,
exes who still like me and co-workers that want to work with me.
I'm near the top of the food chain in my career and I have some
things going on that have me excited. But I come home every night
to empty and that's not what I want out of life.
I don't know that this will result in anything, but like the old
adage says, you can't win if you don't enter.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've had three solid careers and I've been working the past 10
years on launching my fourth and final career.
Oh yeah, I visit a lot of OKC profiles without writing. There are
many superb women here and I'm guessing some men figure if they
talk to a lot of them their odds of finding "the one" will improve.
I don't do that. I'm not a "serial messager" (my spell checker says
that's not a word) but I think people will understand. I'm a one
woman kind of man so I don't try to carry on exchanges with
multiple women. I've only been on one date so far and that's going
to be a "friend", which is okay. I don't mind taking things slow.
"The one" will be worth it and I won't have to apologize for being
just another man.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making friends. I grew up a military brat, which meant you learned
to make friends fast or learned how to fight because you were
always the new kid. Despite traveling all over the world and
meeting thousands of people, I still have friends from elementary
school. Who knew I had so many friends with bad taste?
As I've aged I've learned that I excel at adapting, improvising and
overcoming. I'm the epitome of tenacity, which is a tremendous
asset in my line of work.
The first things people usually notice about me

I'm a smart ass. I'll explain after we meet, but I've been dealing
with the dark side of life for so long that humor is a coping tool.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm one of those people who can't tell you the name of a song and
who sang it or the name of an actor in a movie. Based on many of
OKC's questions, my life is deficient because I can't name 6 poets,
authors or artists. On the upside, I can't name 6 porno stars,
I'm not a fan of crowds. Give me a night out with friends, an
intimate dinner or Netflix and I'm content.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good friends, a good cigar, good scotch, cold beer, a good steak
and a happy woman. For those opposed to alcohol, I will say I do
not suffer from cenosillicaphobia.
I'll add that I enjoy smoking a cigar, but I don't need to smoke.
The odor bothers most people, so I don't smoke around people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

side of the bed?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am sapiosexual.
I'll also admit that since I'm new to this area I'm having to use
Google maps when I read someone's profile. 30 miles can mean a 90
minute drive around here.
