Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am independent, intellectually curious, and open-minded. Looking
for one woman with a blend of qualities--artistic, patience,
someone with whom to share my feelings, and spend the final chapter
of my life. I am not looking for my twin. Most people think I look
younger than I really am. I take care of my body. Truth, honesty,
equality, balanced with sensitivity and compassion are my mantras.
I appreciate emotional warmth and physical affection. I think I am
pretty flexible and easy to get along with. I can be serious or
playful, depending on the situation and whom I am with. A wise man
moves according to his circumstances.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Retired from full time college teaching in Boston in 2013. Still
doing part time teaching and consulting, and volunteering as a
surgical liaison at a hospital. Thinking about new travel
destinations. Learning to cook and eat healthier. One philosopher
remarked the concept of efficiency of any process will remain
undefined until we know why we are here. Another has remarked that
if we ever find out, the universe will instantly change, so that
the mystery will remain. I think this has already happened.
Learning more about all of the fine arts and meditation. Keeping
abreast of politics and global events.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to other people, learning about their experiences, though
I need someone to listen to me. Offering support when asked to help
put things in perspective. Helping to de-pressurize a friend after
a tough week. Tutoring students in chemistry and math, vegetable
gardening. Doing minor home repairs and removing stains from
fabrics--that involves chemistry, right! A news hound--wondering
what's happening; thinking about the "law of unintended
consequences." Taking walks on the beach and hiking in the woods,
playing scrabble and backgammon, and tennis (???) and cycling;
going to the movies.

My eyes and beard. And my warm hands, so I am told.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
music--pretty wide variety, depending on my mood
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I can do to help bring out the best in my future
other"--YOU! I also think about the future of my children and how
to stay connected to them; how lifestyles and culture have changed
as a result of technological advances since the 60's. What will
life be like after I'm gone. The balance between intellect and
emotion. And what John Coffey said to Paul in "The Green Mile,"
just before he was executed.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No two Friday evenings are the same. Going out to eat or to the
movies with a friend, or just reading/watching a movie at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have unloaded most of my baggage, but occasionally need someone
to help me unpack a little more.
