Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you're looking for a large (not fat!), sort of
rough-around-the-edges kind of guy who can write poetry, take a
look at my profile. By the way, my beard is now gone.
Here's a poetry sample:
Many loved her,
But it was my arm she took
The love notes she sends me
Aren't meant for a book
We can share a laugh
Just by giving a look
Our future together seems so secure
How does a guy like me rate a woman like her?
I'm a 70 year old man living in a condo in downtown Seattle. I was
born in Bremerton, Washington and graduated from South Kitsap High
School and the University of Washington. I've been married twice.
My first marriage ending in divorce after 6 years and my second
marriage ending with the death of my wife from cancer after 22
years. Politically, I consider myself to be a moderate conservative
and don't care for extremes at either end of the political
spectrum. I was an athlete in my youth and still enjoy going to the
gym to lift weights. I enjoy traveling and have been to Europe 3
times in the past few years.
I'll try to make this simple. The woman that I'm seeking is
attractive, reasonably fit, and fun to be with, I would definitely
consider moving to be with the "love of my life".
For fun, I write poetry and jokes. Here is a sample:
Some get up at the break of day
Others choose to sleep their life away
Many go to work to earn their daily pay
As for me, I think I'll flyaway
Sleep on the beach and wear a red beret
When I get hungry, I'll have some consommé
Anyone want to join me on my getaway?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Basically, I'm just enjoying my retirement. When I save enough
money, I travel. Otherwise, I spend a lot of time in my condo
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Lots of things, but I think that I'm a reasonably good writer of
poetry. Here's a couple of examples:
The solitary trees look like abandoned lovers
Dropping their leaves into the river like old love letters
The leaves drift away and disappear
Just like the dreams that the lovers once held dear
Saw her today
Didn't know what to say
But my heart feels the way
That it did on that day
When she walked away
She lost her looks early
Which was just as well
Because her luck with men
Hadn't been too swell
Men she attracted were mostly inbred
Whose personalities would be improved
With a shovel to the back of the head
The first things people usually notice about me

My physical size. I'm 6 feet tall and weigh around 245 pounds. I'm
not fat, though. I work out with weights and have a fair amount of
muscle, especially for someone my age. See my pictures.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My favorite books are murder mysteries. I like Jo Nesbo, Henning
Mankell, Lisa Black, Jussi Adler Olsen, S.J. Bolton, etc. I'm not
much of a movie buff, but will occasionally attend a movie. I like
oldies rock, 80's new wave, punk, ABBA, some country, just to name
a few. I'm not into fancy foods. I like the basics like hamburgers,
steak, fish & chips, Chinese, Thai, just to name a few things.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My car. My computer. My home. My friends and relatives. Books. The
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Right now, I think a lot about meeting an attractive, compatible
woman for a possible LTR.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably reading a good book with the TV on to provide some
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have been a nudist for most of my adult life. My late wife and I
belonged to a Seattle area club (Fraternity Snoqualmie) and to one
in southern California called Elysium.
