Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Viam aut inveniam aut faciam.
I moved here from the Midwest about 2 years ago for the job.
Optimistic, confident, happy, and hopeful; I believe in growing old
naturally and gracefully. My hair is naturally platinum.
I am looking for an intelligent, available, well balanced man with
a sense of humor - who can imagine himself with a self sufficient
woman like me.
Many men of my generation 'need to be needed' and I need one
differently than most. I can weld, fix most things, ride my own
motorcycle, design and build stuff, have my own tools and a ladder,
mow my own lawn and take care of any pests that get in the house
I need you for what you have to offer in heart, humor, spirit,
passion, conversation, cards, and maybe someday; partnership. It's
been my experience that most men my age and older struggle with
gender roles and as a result, I usually choose to date younger
If you answer questions with 'Because I am the man' we probably
aren't a match. No offense. If you're different, I'll listen. Write
to me. I will answer.
I am looking for one very special Renaissance man more than I am
looking for a bunch of different dates. My heart is his last
home...and I know it.
I graduated from art school, raised my family on a farm, started up
and sold a few technology companies.
I avoid toxins in most forms from junk food to bad people. I don't
smoke. I drink wine on special occasions only. I am joyful,
optimistic and genuinely friendly. I was married over 23 years. I
am ok - and have been through the pain and have come out on the
other side a better woman. I've done the emotional clearing work
and I do believe in love. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love what I do for work and travel a bit with the job. I am on
the cutting edge of technology and get to see the cool stuff up
close. I wear a suit most days and get to meet some really
impressive minds in the work.
I'm executing a five year plan to retire and am exploring doing so
in another country. I am off to Ecuador next.
I've always wanted to learn to tie flies and fly fish. I'll learn
to do both while I am here.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Solving complex problems. I learn fast, retain well and communicate
clearly. I am a story teller and can translate complex technical
concepts to groups who are not technical.
I don't believe the glass is half full or half empty. I believe the
container is improperly sized.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair....and my height.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am currently reading a couple of books at once which may not be
the best idea I've had.
I do love ee cummings poetry, A Confederacy of Dunces, Flowers for
Algernon, Kurt Vonnegut, Mark Twain. I enjoy lots of different
audio books while driving or flying.
I love going out to the big screen and at the top of my list are
Avatar, Braveheart, Rear Window, Princess Bride, Shawshank
Redemption, Edward Scissorhands, The Piano, Old Yeller, It Could
Happen To You, Amelie, Moonstruck, Raising Arizona, A Fish Called
Wanda, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
I have favorite movie scenes, too; like the divorced husband and
wife goodbye kiss in the Abyss, the haircut in Phenomenon, the toe
tapping velociraptor in the kitchen of Jurassic Park, and the
answering machine dialog on Swingers. If you a) don't get the
reference or b) think that's porn of some kind - don't click
I enjoy most live events - like opera, symphony, musicals, Broadway
shows, sporting events (especially college basketball) but not
I grow a garden in summer.
As for current TV, I like Vikings, Downton Abbey, The Walking Dead,
Game of Thrones, Hell on Wheels, and Outlander right now (on
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I buy quality; not names. I like fresh herbs, a good tea, well made
oak furniture, honeycrisp apples, old clocks, and high thread count
linens because they feel so good on my skin. I make a good living
and have moderate tastes.
I guess I can't do without nature, love, humor, grace, kindness,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
thinking, innovation, and discovery...and start-up ideas.
I also wonder where 'he' might be...what's he's doing now...if he's
close by.... :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
likely to be cooking something...playing a game with one of my
grown kids online... planning an adventure, shopping at uwajimaya,
or exploring my new city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I had cancer when I was 30. I am fine now and have been ever since
but it changed me. I took control of my life and altered my course
and I respect those who can and do the same.
I don't get involved with anything petty. I have low tolerance for
gossip, drama, drunks & addicts, or bullshit of any kind. I
don't lie, cheat or steal and I don't associate with those who do,
or suffer fools or hotheads. Life is too short.
I look and act younger than I am - and I do enjoy sex but only with
someone I trust and with whom I share an emotional investment and
connection. I was never promiscuous and am not now. I am not
looking for a fling, a hook-up, or a friend with benefits.
I've been contacted by liars and cons here - but I am really trying
not to become jaded. I have my shit together, and you should, too
if you contact me. I don't know why I am typing this here - the
cons don't really get this far in the profile. Ah well - maybe I
just needed to say it.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile. Whether you're
interested in me or not, I hope you find love, laughter, and joy.
We all deserve it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

prepared to meet a good woman with an open mind.

committed relationship. Also, if you are younger than my kids (33)
you are too young for me; sorry.
I do believe there are good men here and I keep this profile up to
