My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
-- I value wit, humor, irony, tact and intelligence;
-- I appreciate the beauty of the English language in its myriad manifestations;
-- Happiness makes the world go 'round so be happy and bring more happiness into the world;
-- I enjoy jukeboxes, swing dancing, R&B and early rock 'n roll;
-- I am inclined toward laughter and comedy;
-- History is my favorite teacher, literature my second favorite;
-- I dislike organized religion, politics, gratuitous noise and poor grammar and diction. My religion and politics are of the leave-me-the-hell-alone variety. I am mortified equally by salespersons and door-to-door religious proselytizers. Don't rub my nose in your agenda;
-- The way I see it, we get one shot at life. When we're dead, it's game over. Accordingly, people who waste my time are a bete noire.

Passions: Learning; writing; reading; German and Italian sports cars; intimate conversations; fresh, pizza-house pizza; long walks in a natural environment; making money in the stock market.

Peeves: indiscriminate urban and suburban development and the collateral destruction of farms and farm land; electronic intruders, e.g., telemarketers; careless drivers and road-hogging minivans and SUVs; almost everything government-related; stupidity (see the next-to-last "peeve.")

I cherish alone time and tend to avoid overly clingy people. I need time and space to write and read and sit alone with my thoughts yet I don't take myself seriously, just my work. I trade the stock market during the week for fun and profit yet have a flexible schedule. There's a gym in my basement and I use it regularly, every other day.

While I don't go to a job any more, I also don't use the word "retired." My life situation is not all-or-nothing. I choose when I want to work and when I want to play. I might venture off to an island this week, spending 50 hours the following week researching the stock market and day-trading names I've uncovered. Designing each day is a privilege, a privilege earned through proficiency. I admire proficiency, both in the written and spoken word and in the manner in which people live their lives.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
"To thine own self be true;
And it must follow as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man."

-- Hamlet. Act I, Sc. 3

Staying afloat, trying not to get swept-up in the swirling sea of egos working to figure themselves out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Explaining things; keeping a secret; biting my tongue; trivia; writing simply dreadful poetry; cutting my losses; making coffee; remembering your birthday; playing practical jokes; playing the stock market; playing with words; winning at strip poker; pruning trees and shrubs; finding the funny in situations; making people laugh; making people feel comfortable and appreciated.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The halo; third arm; dimples; my bulge -- I dunno?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Literature = Mostly the classics and non-fiction. Examples: Candide; Waiting For Godot; Twelfth Night; The Tempest; The Taming of the Shrew; A Midsummer Night's Dream; Chaucer's Canterbury Tales; Robinson Crusoe; the poems and short stories of Edgar Allen Poe; British Romantic poetry and the poetry of William Butler Yeats; Darwin's On The Origin of Species; any of Moliere's plays; Bram Stoker's Dracula; Ralph Waldo Emerson's essays; Thoreau's Walden; anything from Eckhart Tolle; T. S. Eliot; The Importance of Being Earnest, for starters.

Movies: American Graffiti, The Blues Brothers, Animal House, Grease, Airplane!, A Beautiful Mind, Dr. Zhivago, Casablanca, Gone With The Wind. I don't like that many movies but I'm a patsy for the old black and white stuff from the 30's and 40's.

Music: Good old Rock 'n Roll, Beach Music, rhythm & blues. Country music makes me want to move to another country (Johnny Cash and Conway Twitty are exceptions.) Current, "alternative," or grunge feels like a swarm of gnats.

Shows: I don't watch much television outside of C-Span on weekends and Bloomberg and CNBC (financial networks) during the week although Pawn Stars has become an entertaining and informative diversion and college football is a passion.

Food: Whatever you cook except beets or liver, although I make a pot of coffee every morning using freshly ground beans and distilled water. Delicious coffee, every morning, is my trademark.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Quotations, a sense of humor, storytelling and jokes, free shipping, Sirius satellite radio, a comfortable bed and clean, 100% cotton sheets.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stupid jokes; Halloween bric-a-brac; is it time to put more pine straw around the trees and shrubs; behavioral economics; wordplay; paint colors; interpretive history; sports cars; investing; morality; clearing stuff out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
(are you still reading this?)

Working on the time machine in my basement.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll give you three: I read y'alls profiles from the bottom up; my favorite time of day is 12:34; I feel that zombies are misunderstood and generally get a raw deal.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 35–59
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
* You are funny, wise, interesting or all three; and,
* You did not answer "The Most Private Thing I'm Willing to Admit" question with the same predictable response found in so many women's profiles, something along the lines of, "Why would I admit something private on the internet?" May I respectfully point out that the question is a joke. It's intended to determine whether or not you have either a sense of humor or irony and, if so, to gauge its relative strength, not to elicit truly confidential information.

Useful (maybe) Tip: I do not approach random strangers with a list of requirements I'm looking to check-off (age, hair or eye color, occupation, etc.) To my way of thinking, this site is about finding neat people I wouldn't otherwise run into, allowing things to unfold organically from there. The OKC Match Percentage, on the other hand, is relevant. Relatively high Match numbers, 80% or better, suggest greater compatibility. Super-low "Enemy" numbers (<20%) are favorable, too.
