Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Recently, I celebrated a birthday up in SF, at a Roman cuisine
restaurant. We decided I am LXI years old. That sounds pretty
My bicycling sport/hobby keep me entertained and healthy, but it's
not the same without someone to share it with. But perhaps golf is
a better sport to share... Or tennis... Or kayaking?
I'm hoping the cosmic roullette wheel will find me a match. I think
I bring to the conversation some enthusiasm, abit of clever wit,
the occasional valuable insight, a curiosity for the world and an
appreciation for life. Let's see what happens...;-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an Architect with experience in a variety of commercial
projects; planning, design, documentation, construction admin. Some
travel, but most work is local.
I'm not a spandex maniac, but I enjoy bicycling on weekends (love
the meditation of a ride).
I "eat out" 2-3 evenings a week (How about you? I have found this
to be a revealing Q...;-)
I'm always planning the next adventure (weekend bike trip or annual
int'l trip). Occasionally, I take an evening class (history of
Yosemite, backyard botany, sketching, iPhonography...) I have a
small circle of friends, and room for a partner in my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing patterns... in the landscape, in business, in people's
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My strong shoulders, straight teeth and Midwestern accent? (How's
that for self-promotion?...;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't have Cable, but have a Netflix dvd account (animation,
comedy and foreign films). I just finished reading Travels In A
Thin Country (Chile), and It's Not About The Tapas (Spain). Next
up, Tasting Tuscany.
Usually, I'm researching an upcoming trip. Three years ago, I
wandered in France and Spain. Last year, I bicycled in No Italy and
So Bohemia (my father's heritage). Next spring... still in research
mode...;-) In a perfect world, I will find someone with the same
attitude, budget and interests so we can explore together!
Then there is foraging for food; I am an omnivore. I enjoy
everything from BBQ to Asian Fusion, Italian to Thai... I like it
all! I enjoy grilling, stir fry, and composing salads.
My favorite app? Pandora...;-) I listen to all kinds of acid jazz,
gypsy, and classical. (Occasionally, I backslide with B52s, Tears
For Fears, Lyle Lovett or Steely Dan...I know, I'm all over the
map. Our generation was blessed!)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Brothers (the four of us live all over the US but we stay in
Friends (a few valued souls that I have 'a pact' with)
Quiet Hour at Peet's (it might also be the coffee)
Sleep Cycle (without it, the whole circus grinds to a halt)
iPhone (it's like living in the future!)
...that leaves one... I was hoping it could be you...;-)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I enjoy observing people, marveling at the range of the human
experience. As corny as it sounds, I try to find a lesson in
everything that happens, good or bad.
The next big vacation. Next spring, I hope to visit either the
Basque Region or Tuscany, mixing bicycling with gastronomy and the
usual tourist adventures.
I think all of us, at this stage of life and under these conditions
(online dating), should be aware by now of our old habits with
boy-girl dating rituals, clear about what we want and need, and
playful and non-judgemental about this whole crazy
Are you with me?!?!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Seeking an easy-going transition from the work-a-day world to a
more playful in-the-moment mindset. Some nights, it's pizza, wine
and a movie; some nights, it's an adventure up in SF, or down in
Monterey, or father afield...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't think time, or gravity, are constants!...;-)
