Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello AND Thanks,
This being the part of this new, electronic introduction method,
where we each describe ourselves in a manner to be attractive to
someone out there, I`ll give it a try. I`m not a pathetic,
whimpering sort of person. But even here I`ll ask for some
understanding. For you see, I`m not a simple person either.
In the hope of gaining your interest, I could tell you about this
or that part of me. But I have no idea who you are, so I don`t know
what will impress you. So, this profile has to be different.
Maybe I should state some characteristics that have been with me
most or all of my life. I`ll try not to make it to much of an
historical bibliography. I mention this because I have ( ask
' why ' a lot ) in my life, and therefore feel compelled to answer
why`s before they`re ask.
From a very early age I remember being complimented on my drawing.
At 14 it was suggested that painting was the next logical step. At
14 I did my first acrylic on canvas. Been a serious painter ever
since, in oil after two acrylics. Many years of no painting, but
always on my mind.
I consider myself intelligent, in a lopsided way, considerate,
thoughtful, and compassionate. I can be passionate as well. I think
I have more of an ability to understand than to remember. I try to
see more than one side of an issue. I have a large interest in
I prefer quiet times over rowdy ones. My friends have told me I
have more of a ' C ' or ' D ' type of personality than an 'A '
' B ' type. Though I am of a Caucasian heritage, I enjoy the
American Indian or Ancient Chinese beliefs over most others. I will
hug a tree as I will hug the whole earth. Environmental problems
are of a concern to me.
For the more twisted of you : " The slithy toves, Did gyre and
gimbal in the wabe. "
Peace and Tranquility,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I`m staying happy and aware. Being happy to be retired, I spend my
days reading, drawing, painting. Right now I`m building some stands
to place my canvases on at shows.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hell, I don`t know. I`m good at diagnosing and fixing electro-
mechanical systems. I`m good at realizing when something is wrong
with someone I`m out with. I do paint fairly well. I learn well.
I`m not good at this.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I`m laughing a lot. I see and make up unusual juxtapositions of
things and situations, that I find humorous. I say silly things to
people I don`t know, which gets them to smile and laugh. It`s fun.
As expected, I enjoy having fun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books : I am busy, throughout my life, trying to educate myself,
mainly through reading. So I don`t spend much time on novels.
Movies : the actresses and actors, and the story line make the
difference. Comedies, dramas and documentaries are what I
Music : Not elevator or head banging stuff. I don`t need to break
my heart listening to music. I`ve recently found some Eastern
Meditation type that is wonderful. I grew up with, and still enjoy,
Chamber Music and older Rock n` Roll. I enjoy other types
Food : Not McDonald`s. I try to eat somewhat healthily, less and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee, Love, Laughter, Mental Adventure, My Reading Glasses, One
or Two Fun People, and paints; makes seven.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why things are, and what the hell I`m doing. How can I do something
of more importance. How can I help the elephants, apes, and other
animals and plants that man is destroying.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading, watching an old movie, or MSNBC, or an environmental/
animal show. Can`t do the bar scene alone. I need you to go out
with and have some fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing, it would`nt be very private would it ? People who know me,
realize I don`t keep many secrets. I`m to damned innocent and
honest to live a lie.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Please message me if : you like to laugh, if you can be serious
about more than soap- opera stuff, if your intelligent enough to be
compassionate, if ' love ' means more to you than a quickie or a
four letter word, and if I can trust you.
