My self-summary
Describe myself and my perfect match? Hmmm...

Male, 55 available. Some damage. Bruised ego, abraded self confidence and torn meniscus. Housebroken, helpful, friendly and eager to please. Can be active or lazy as the situation warrants. Has 75% of his hair and moments of intelligence (not that those two are necessarily related). Can take a while to finish a project. Keep away from shiny objects; easily distracted. Sense of humor can be dry, wry and occasionally sarcastic (more self-deprecating). Not everyone gets it.

I like to make/build things. Cabinets, picture frames, things out of wood, generally. Have some partially complete, pretty nifty cutting boards on the workbench right now. They would be nifty, if I ever get the time to get back to work on them, that is. It would be nice to move into other mediums, such as metal; but, that requires more tools. Just what I need, more tools. A wire welder and a plasma cutter.

The dating thing is pretty difficult. Historically, I have been a single relationship type. However, I am wary of being hurt again and am going to take it somewhat slow. I tried casual dating (didn't work out so well). Right now, I would like to enjoy the company of a new lady and find out about her. Maybe to see a movie, have dinner, sit and chat, go to a museum or on a short hike or bike ride with. Yes... Romance (whatever that may be).

I would like someone with patience and affection, maybe playful. Moments of intelligence would be nice as well. A complete relationship that includes friendship, trust, intimacy, complaining, frustration, love, talking and sitting silently together. Separate interests and friends are fine; I don't need to be joined at the hip. Not all of those listed are necessarily good things, but I recognize that there will be difficulties in any relationship. I am far from perfect and do not expect perfection. Are you out there?
What I’m doing with my life
Professionally, I own my own business inspecting homes. I think I am pretty darned good at it, and have an excellent reputation among my colleagues and the real estate community in general.

My kids are adults, my son (eldest) is still floundering, but is on his own (with my occasional monetary help). My daughter graduated from Vassar in May of last year and just finished a year working as a counselor at a high school in China. I visited her at the end of her stint and we then traveled to South China, Cambodia and Vietnam.
I’m really good at
Being a nice person. Really. That can be a detriment as well, but I like people and want them to like me. Sometimes I try too hard.

I can make pleasant sounds come out of a guitar as well. Acoustic, generally folk-type.

I can cook. Not gourmet, but tasty enough. Usually. There was that shoe-leather chicken breast I made a few years back (Turns out 40 minutes on the grill was too long). Good flavor, if a bit dry.

Forgetting! I am champion at that. I have never met anyone (at least that I can remember) who is better at forgetting than I am.

Saying the wrong thing at the perfect time. Yet another thing at which I excel. Goes along with the private thing below.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know... Some people have mentioned my eyes and my height. I am not feakishly tall, but it does come up.

Oh yeah, and my chiseled Adonis-like body (right, in my dreams).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies, books and shows that make me feel good. I have always liked animated movies; Disney, Pixar, Miyazaki, etc. Romantic comedies in reasonable amounts. Adventure, sci-fi, action are good too. I like movies to be fun. While I am willing to see something with more depth, I generally have enough real life in my real life and can be reluctant to be entertained (or depressed) by someone else's misfortunes. Not big on "reality" TV or most televised sports either.

Songs:
Puff the Magic Dragon
House at Pooh Corner
As Tears Go By

Musical Artists:
Mostly stuff I grew up with. AC/DC, John Denver, Croce, Neil Diamond, CSN, Celine Dione, Styx, Kansas, Holst, Wakeman, Wagner, Beatles, Stones, Who...

Food... Exotic on rare occasion. Not much for sushi, but I can eat it. Arte some word stuff in China. I like a reasonable variety of full-flavored foods. Not that this is a clear answer. Meat & potatoes is always acceptable. Comfort foods like stew (yum), pot roast, meatloaf.
The six things I could never do without
Food
Water
Air (14 pounds per square inch with approximately 20% oxygen)
Clothing
A bed in which I can sleep
Oh... you meant figuratively?
On a typical Friday night I am
Interested in decompressing from the week. Normally, that means quiet time (maybe a movie or read a book), but I can go out on occasion. Not really a dancer, but if my dance partner is tolerant, I am up for it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You know that switch/valve in your brain that prevents you from saying what you are thinking? Well, mine seems to be defective (seems?). Gets stuck in the open position and I end up saying something stupid. Most of my friends get me and understand that I mean no harm, but there are those that I offend. It has been said that I only remove my foot from my mouth in order to exchange feet. (But, everyone else was thinking it!)

On dating... First date, almost certainly will not initiate a kiss. Second date, probably still going to be too nervous. Third date, almost certainly. After that?
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 48–56
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You have a wire welder and a plasma cutter. I really want to try those out. Well, also if you are looking for someone who is honest and sincere, and is willing to let you be yourself.

No more supermodels please...
