Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Greets ! There I am. And here you are reading a 'summary' of my
Okay. I live happy and I know it could be better with a well
matched partner. It's exciting to think about finding an ideal
mate, the things to say, to see, to wonder about, to
I want to come into this freshly. Yep, I've answered about 400
questions, maybe I'll even go for more if that's helpful; but
what's as important and perhaps more than the content of that data,
is the intent that I bring, that you bring.
It's cool to be around someone who's noticeably relaxed with
him-self. I figure that our book of life has perhaps half the pages
turned by now and much is known; and the rest, although not yet
written in there, will be governed by intent more than other
previous factors. Emerson wrote (Self Reliance) : "The voyage of
the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks. See the line
from a sufficient distance, and it straightens itself to the
average tendency. .... "
I so agree. The whole 'baggage' thing I've seen guys & gals
mentioning... why approach it from a negative point of view? Why
should we carry baggage ? Why not mementos to remind us of an
important lesson learned, or of the courage or beauty of a special
time? You get my meaning...
I find most attractive a man who is curious rather than comparing;
honest and clever; having some interest or occupation, as opposed
to being a couch potato. . . :)
I'm interested in our mutual well-being: good food for health, to
appreciate life fully; good thoughts to feed the mind & soul;
love to create some magic would sure be super !
Because I work, I need time for that during the day and to walk,
read and make noise in the kitchen. If you don't already love
watching Star Trek, I can convince you of its' value ...
I'm reasonable, funny, a romantic, interested in conversation, as
much as quiet time. I believe that two partners operating with a
common goal, with each bringing their uniqueness to the table in a
constructive/loving manner can live longer, fuller, more productive
lives, enriching the soil for all around them. The garden is a
wonderful metaphor for life, the connectedness of each of us and to
our world. Good things in, good things out. A time for cultivating,
a time for harvesting. And even though there are no guarantees, we
plant, we cultivate, and we expect the sun to shine, the rain to
fall and what we sow to grow. And what about destiny ?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mostly I spend my time learning, working and loving the people dear
to me, family and a few friends. I walk with my dog 'Seven' about 1
1/2 hours per day (substantial time out in the greenery)
I have my own business, designing/making home decor accessories
(drapes,bedding etc. - all custom work) so my schedule can be very
open or totally booked depending on my current projects. While I
work, I listen to books rather than read to get as much learning in
as possible, always !
My town is amazing, green, and pretty much as good as it gets for
the burbs. I garden on my deck, enjoy the snow/sun/rain and love
waking up each day. I consider myself lucky and I know I could
enjoy life even more with a good man at my side. Haven't found him
yet and I do confess I haven't been looking since my last
relationship (several years ago) I needed a break and have been too
busy building a new life to pursue anything intimate since
My granddaughter set me up on this site after we had a chat one
Saturday afternoon and so here I am.. guess I'm just about at that
point where I'd start looking for a special someone to share this
time and this beautiful life with. If you were that someone, you'd
be a lucky man for sure. If I found a loving, funny and
intelligent/capable man who would become a true friend, I would
then be just as lucky. In the end I think that's what it's all
about, to be and have a true friend. .... with benefits is a total
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well this is a tough one 'cause if I were to put my achievements
and/or "good at" things on a clothes line, there would be a long
and amazing variety of big and small. On the other hand. we don't
want to look far back to count our blessings and talents. I'm good
at anything I take up seriously: like any career I've managed,
public relations, studies, hobbies, arts etc.
On the light side: I'm an excellent baker (Yum!) a pretty good cook
in general, anything creative, mathematical and a great problem
On the more serious side I have good communication skills, good
sense and will be frank as well as encouraging.
Right now I have my own business and make custom window dressings
and bedding for private clients, designers and decorators... and I
can't lie.... I do incredibly perfect work, if you can appreciate
the fine couture and the math/designing that goes into that kind of
perfection. So this allows me to work from home and enjoy more
freedom so I'm loving that !
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm laid back, a happy camper and a soft spoken person. Don't need
to prove anything to anyone and appreciate what the day brings.
Some folks like that about me. And it pisses some people off. What
can I say ? It takes all kinds of people to make a world.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I enjoy all philosophy, especially Will & Ariel Durant's Story
of Civilization set (11 tomes which I plan to go through when I
retire); all Sherlock Holmes, Shakespeare, variety in poetry,
Winston Churchill, self development and how to books.. Currently:
Cradle to Cradle - Rethinking how we make things and How to think
like Leonardo Da Vinci.
Each & every Star Trek series & movies, action movies, some
drama, comedies, love martial arts movies and of course romantic
TV: Big Bang, Arrow, Elementary, Dexter, Masterchef... But I don't
want to spend lots of time on Tv when I could be watching more
Music is amazing.... dance music for dancing only; Vivaldi, Chopin,
Tchaickofsky (probably misspelled) Bach etc; Amos Lee style, some
Creed, Beatles, Jewel, Elvis, oldies, opera etc. Not rap, new age
Food: I love it !! I'm Italian so.... but no meat (quit that about
18 years ago) Love fish, grilled vegetables, rice, cheese/eggs,
quinoa and everything else ! Some wine, big tea drinker too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
To thine own self be true: my integrity/dignity/freedom
my family, Seven
appreciation for life, interesting people, Star Trek !
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I try to keep the grey matter giggling, so where does one start...
I love thinking about inventions, gadgets, the meaning of life,
what other people think about and why they do what they do. I'm an
idealist, an optimist, and generally very curious about everything
and given that I believe taking the time to "think" is an important
part of life, I allow myself that each & every day. I cherish
those quiet times and a place/space for my thoughts to hover around
me, sometimes put 2 and 2 together... Book: 'Leisure, the basis of
Culture" just about sums it up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ready to relax and start the weekend. What I do depends on what's
going on: an evening with family or a friend is great. Often I just
want to relax on the couch, enjoy a quiet evening, definitely watch
Kitchen Nightmares, Dexter &/or Star Trek episodes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm willing to admit that I wouldn't reveal anything labeled "most
private" Dah !!! ?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you sometimes wonder if a woman can be interesting, warm, and
cool at the same time.
If you like someone who also uses their brains/talents, and it
doesn't make you want to get into a contest to prove that you're
better or smarter.
If most of your initial questions aren't about sex... ( Yeah. I get
that you're a guy but ...) it's putting the cart before the horse
If you're tired of the bullshit stuff. Great. I'm not going to try
to impress you with the brand name of my sneakers or sunglasses.
I'm a loving, honest and bright person and I'd like to be
appreciated for that.
All this said, message me if you still want to get to know me more.
Let's start there.
