Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here’s a rant. If I hear “serious relationship” one more time, I’m
going to spontaneously combust. Why do you NEVER hear the word “
romance” anymore? Or “love?” Or “boyfriend” or “girlfriend?” The
other night on TV some chick referred to her “person I’m in a
relationship with.” Gag. That phrase has become an emetic.
I’m obviously old school, and I’m proud of it. I also believe in
chivalry. When it’s appropriate, I hold doors open for a woman and
pull out her chair for her at the dinner table. In short I treat a
lady like a lady. Without OVERdoing it.
More about me:
I believe in The Golden Rule. And try to live by it. Empathy goes a
I have no patience for mendacity; I'm a straight-shooter, and I
expect the same of you. I’d rather feel hurt by the truth than by a
lie, anyday. No contest.
I am NOT into hip-hop, the lunatic fringe on any issue,
motorcycles, body art, hunting or littering.
I AM into photography, casual bird watching, star gazing, playing
the ukulele, casual art appreciation and conservation.
I like to be around polite, compassionate, soft-spoken, kind
I’m an outdoor enthusiast. All four seasons. Early spring and late
fall are my least favorites; cold and wet are no fun. Otherwise, I
want to be out there. Whether it’s feeling the sun warm my face,
getting soaked to the bone during a summer shower or a blistery
winter wind reddening my nose and cheeks; it’s all good. Here’s a
motto I like: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just
I love animals. But I’m not a big fan of domestic cats, although
there can be exceptions. I’m a dog person at heart. All animals,
especially pets, keep me humble about mankind's place in the world.
I have an enduring respect for them all, even the lowly
What else.... I prefer the Farmers' Market to the grocery store any
day. I like traveling off the beaten path, not on a tourbus or
staying at Holiday Inn. I like to take my time to soak it all in,
never being in a hurry.
There's something else you should know. Right now I'm having
mobility problems. When I go out I use a scooter.
I’d like to meet a woman who’s content with a quiet lifestyle and
embraces Mother Nature as I do. She takes pride in her appearance
and wears her warm heart on her sleeve. She also understands the
enormous difference between someone "making" you happy and "being"
happy with someone.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living a quiet life, enjoying it to the max, with what I have,
while I can. Because as the cliche goes, you never know when your
time is up. I also try to learn something new every day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Problem-solving. I like to think I'm a decent hobbyist
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People have told me my eyes, smile, easy-going manner.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like historical fiction, like the Beyond the Sea of Ice
Regarding music: I enjoy the music I grew up with: the popular
stuff from the mid 60's and early 70's. Today’s music seems to lack
any real creativity, and doesn’t place any premium on genuine
talent; everything is produced through computer programs, totally
devoid of any life or soul.
I also enjoy light classical, and some country music.
Movies? I gravitate to the classics. And the occasional
contemporary one, if it's done well, and not just the common
festival of explosions, CGI, handheld cameras and third-grader
As far as food goes, anything except sushi and REALLY spicy hot
stuff. My decadent indulgence is Skinny Cow.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Let's dispense with the totally obvious ones like shelter, ok? For
me they're the aroma of fresh air, sunshine, hope, wild open
places, my camera and my ukulele.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Well, the thing most guys are thinking about. And the universe. How
it began, how it really works, how it will end, and how we puny
little humans fit in. Once in a while I gaze at the night sky and
ponder its immense size and age, and start to get a headache. If
you can relate to this, then you're my type of girl!
I also wonder why people are so cruel to one another. Why aren't
politeness, empathy, consideration and plain old common courtesy
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I enjoy a fun, harmless practical joke; both giving and receiving.

Some day when I'm awfully low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight
