My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
With a name like this chances are pretty good that I engage in tarantism. You gotta look up the meaning of this word and then you will find the humour in it.

Of course, I could write all sorts of things about how wonderful I am. These facts are probably all true. Of course, because I am prefect in every way. HEHEHE.

I know, I know. Bad joke.

Seriously now, who am I and what am I looking for on this site.

Within the last couple days I went for a long walk to the grocery store with one of my neighbours as we sometimes do. On the way back she said something interesting and I have thought about it more, and I will not bore you with what she said. However, I think it relates to my objective and it is for this reason why I mention it. One of the things that partially defines me is that in dealing with others, I appreciate a certain amount of ambiguity and uncertainty, as I do with many things in life. Why this is important is that I understand other people's decisions, which I don't necessarily agree with or would do myself, but can appreciate why they do what they do, as each of us are a sum total of our lived experiences, upbringing, cultural differences, financial situations and personal orientations (amongst other things that define our personal characteristics). As a result, it means that I find it difficult to criticize others for doing things that I may or may not do, and would rather accept them for who they are - warts and all.

I often attend social events and have a wide circle of acquaintances because of my past business dealings. I try my best to separate my business life from my personal life although with the advent of social media it is becoming more difficult to do. I am very supportive of all my former partners and their interests. I still stay in touch with many of them (or at least the ones that are still living). I have a number of friends that are female and it has been that way all my life, I have always been closer to women than I have been to men. Maybe that is why I find it difficult to recognize signs of romantic interest (sad to say, I might as well be gay, that is how clueless I am sometimes). I like to keep busy and active; don't have a tv; but do like to spend time alone to think, plan, read and/or write.

I am looking for a smart woman that takes care of herself. I am looking for a relationship, not a one-night stand. Although potentially that might be where it starts, and it may even be where it ends. I am not going into any relationship entirely blind. It is even possible that it may end up being a situationship. I hold no pre-conceived notion of what the end result may be, even though I am optimistic.

Regardless of that, I want someone who has a sense of fun and doesn't take herself overly seriously. It is my hope that she can see the humour in many things and together I want someone to laugh with. I want someone that is interested in others; is able and willing to compromise; is warm and caring; and is willing to talk openly about needs or differences of opinion in an environment of equality and mutual respect.

If that interests and describes you - let's talk. Maybe even plan to meet.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am in a transitional state. However the end of the tunnel is near and I am starting to see light where there once was little.

Everything in my life is changing (or at least it feels that way). Change is good. I don't know where the change will take me. But, I am interested to see where life and the voyage leads me.

Life has been very good to me. I cannot complain (well, I suppose I could, but who is listening and for that matter most people don't care). It is scary sometimes, but under it all, I have an incredible sense of peace and calm. I know that wherever I end up, it will be an incredible place. It would be nice to have someone equally amazing to join me in the voyage.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
whole bunch of nothing!!! HEHEHE

I have no idea what I am really good at, as I just do what needs to be done to the best of my abilities and go from there.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The superhero cape attached to my shoulders and the tights that I must wear as part of the costume.

After that, they usually notice my eyes and smile and often come across as being somewhat shy and take a while to open up at first meeting, because as you would know, superheros try to blend in with their surroundings until needed.

People often find I am easy to talk to and it is probably because I genuinely like other people and their company.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Historically I am a voracious reader, but currently have most of my books in storage. Most of these books are non-fiction. In some ways I feel like a part of me is lost without them. But then the internet is increasing the speed of real time information, but the downside is that I seem to be developing the attention span of a gnat. Who knows if that is a good thing or not.

I am not a big TV or movie type person maybe because I never converted my tv to digital or cable from rabbit ears when it went that way last summer - so I currently do not have tv right now. I enjoy dramas, crime and human interest and biographically-based stories. The TV shows I watch, when I watch, tend to be similar to the movies.

I very much enjoy music of all genres. Quite fond of classical, operas (on Saturday afternoons - it is an old tradition for me), jazz, classic rock, alternative, folk, blues - new music, old music to everything in between. My music interests are very, very (did I say very) broad. I am not particularly fond of mainstream top 40 country - and only allow myself to indulge in that genre during Stampede Week - because it is a losing cause to fight that battle.

Food? Yes please!!! I will try everything once, and more often than not more than once. If you put food in front of me I will eat it. I enjoy a wide assortment of world cuisine, and would like to know how to make some of it. I have a fantastic kitchen that is definitely under-utilized, but I only use it when I have time to do so.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Obviously food and water and a place to rest my head.

This is a tough one, because there should be more than six things on this list. However, we are resilient people and we can do without a lot of things we think we could not do without. I want to be surrounded by beauty, respect, tolerance, good health, good food, friends and family. Oh and whirled peas.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I should be thinking about!!! LOL

Oh and I am trying to figure out new ways to create whirled peas!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually do something, but more often than not I am shocked to realize it is Friday already and then try to figure out what to do on the weekend - or that night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I might not be as perfect as I think I am!!! I know it is hard to believe. Some might think it is shocking.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to chat; are interested; just want to find out more about me... or maybe just because there is a button below my profile that says something like send message (or contact this person); or you had your hand on the mouse which was hovering on top of it as you sneezed - and it clicked by accident. LOL
