My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
New York wry bred.

Viewer discretion advised and the Surgeon General warns against operating heavy machinery after reading this profile.

Neither better nor worse, just different, but you won't recognize the manner and depth unless you spent time with me -- most of what makes me different is not immediately apparent.

If I had to choose one word to describe myself it would be "authentic." By nature, I don't engage in the usual ways we mask ourselves with the cultural touchstones people seem so often to self-identify with. I guess you could call me old-school.

A friend 's wife once described me as a "free-spirited curmudgeon." But I DO say good morning to everybody. Always have. (Are real men allowed to say good morning?)

Frog? Prince? That will depend upon you as much as me. Kiss me and find out.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it but not by any bucket list, simply as it comes.

Wasting some of it by writing unrequited personal notes to women on OKCupid.

Saving up to buy a weekend country house.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Naming that tune. No, not THAT tune, a different one.

Fixing things, and tinkering. Good with hands & tools.

Finding a humorous, bawdy innuendo or double entendre in the most innocuous sentence if I'm in that kind of mood.

Keeping 2 contradictory ideas in my mind at the same time.

Predicting the past.

Being skeptical (but NOT cynical.)

Being a man.
The first things people usually notice about me

That I'm inside-out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
ALWAYS have a book in tow, mostly non-fiction, but venture into fiction with some regularity too.

My musical universe is vast. Bach, Ellington, Beethoven, Schubert, Scott Joplin, Kurt Weill, Brahms, Debussy, Stephen Foster, Ellington, Bix & Bing, Bird & Basie, Jobim & Jango, Sinatra & Bennett, Dvorak, Samuel Barber, Sibeilus, Elgar, Prez, Billie & Bessie, Ella, Ray Charles & Nat Cole, Rodgers, Kern, Gershwin, Berlin, Porter, Loesser, Bernstein & Sondheim, are but a few of the stars of that constellation.

Bluegrass also makes me smile, as does old-time Country is an old drinking buddy from my blue collar days. Plus film scores.

Somewhat encyclopedic about classic films (can you spell "Ouspenskaya"?) and appreciate any and all "honest" theater, whether drama, comedy, musicals or musical comedy,.

Attend and enjoy ballet & dance and have seen most of the major companies including Flamenco & Tango conpanies. Am a very regular visitor to museums, most often at the Met, but also at the Whitney, MoMA, NY Historical Society, and others.

Grew up playing sports, have remained a life-long athlete. A fan of spectator sports but never fanatical. Enjoy baseball more than the other spectator sports and I'd be happy to explain why if you are interested, but also enjoy football once the autumn chill arrives. Am unusually energetic and love outdoor activities (almost as much as indoor ones.)

Know my way around the kitchen a bit and even know the correct way to use a chef's knife. Tend to eat healthy, mostly vegetarian. As for cuisines, can't think of a single ethnic one I don't enjoy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My two teenage sons (who live with their mother, but one now away in college); my nephew, and my VERY cute 5 year-old grand nephew.

2. Beverages: First cup of coffee in the AM and sometimes a cocktail in the evening.

3. Music (see above .)

4. Books -- just learned to read and golly-gee, it's good clean fun!

5. Gallows humor.

6. The four seasons we get in this part of the world.

7. My ability to count out to a half-dozen.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much narcissism and fetish can one culture contain?

The relentless pursuit of cool.

WWJD.... Who would Jesus date?

When did the art of flirting die?

The American League East pennant race.

Why (almost) nobody whistles anymore. I guess it's not "cool."

The law of supply. And demands.

Is it time to re-introduce radishes back into my salads??

That the word "artist" seems to have lost all meaning.

Whether I'll be able to pay for my sons' college tuition with the money I save on haircuts?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ready to be swept off my feet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a book that's 3 days overdue at the library. (Do "real men" even read, let alone borrow books from the library?

I'm Retrosexual.

I DO smile -- once in a while.

I think I've gotten a bit crankier as I've gotten older. But somehow also somewhat mellower.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've got the goods. And the bads. The "oughts" and the "naughts."

You're not a Drama Queen. Nor do you refer to yourself as "Goddess", except ironically. Nihilists need not apply either -- interested only in genuine women who mingle with us mere mortals, down here in the real world.

Careful your epitaph won't read "Replies Very Selectively." You ARE allowed to contact me too, you know. Or is that below your pay-grade? Please mind your shelf-life!

(BTW, just because I haven't made contact, please don't assume that I'm not interested in you. There might be many other reasons I might not have done so at that particular moment.)
