Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First, just an OKCupid observation: I love it when it says 47%
match and there is no write-up whatsoever from the other person.
Ha! What are these numbers based on?? Anyway ...
In a nutshell, I'm looking for someone that I can crack up with.
You know, the kind of uncontrollable laughter where your eyes are
clamped shut and your mouth is wide open but you're not making any
sound at all, and you double over and fall from your chair in slow
motion to the floor and drop your book and you can only mouth the
word "Cramp! Cramp!!" while you point to your side. Then when you
think you're over it and try to say something you instantly start
up again before you can get a word out. Then when you're out at
dinner hours later you still can't stop the giggles that come in
waves while you're trying to eat. And then when you ask what it was
that was so funny you can't remember and that realization makes you
crack up all over again. I love that.
What I am hoping to feel about someone (wish I had said it first
but it's a quote from James Bond in Casino Royale):
"I have no armor left. All that I am, all that is left of me....I
Although I am not a prince I found out recently one of my childhood
friends who I had a crush on (who I haven't seen for 35 years -- we
were at the 'Wonder Years' age when we lived in the same place
overseas) told me she always remembered me as her Prince Charming
for defending her when another friend was saying bad things about
her. So there's that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just trying to figure things out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
... making chocolate chip cookies from scratch. 30 minutes from
ingredients to a soft warm cookie in your hand. On a cold winter
Sunday afternoon there's nothing better..... well, there's a couple
things that are better, but the cookies make those other things
better too! ;-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not sure. I don't usually ask people that question.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Here are a few things I like, not really mainstream stuff:
"First Circle" -- favorite song (best if played loud through
"And I Love Her"
"Are You Going With Me" -- other favorite song (it's a tie)
"Close To Home"
Pat Metheny "Medley"
My reading is varied and interesting, almost all non-fiction,
hidden histories, new archeaology, things that bring a fuller
understanding to today's world and how we got here. I need to be
fascinated by what I'm reading. This kind of reading has helped me
come to terms with things like movies, TV, shows, food, politics,
music, education, medicine, news media. My world view has evolved
in ways I never would have expected, and it continues to change,
and I love that.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
5. French toast with real maple syrup and chocolate chips
6. The 6th thing is yet to be revealed. Maybe it's you! But how
will I ever know?? ...... could be bacon though too. And if it's
between you and bacon ... well, let's proceed with caution.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
World issues, ancient history, my future, my kids' future, and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This is an odd question -- isn't everyone either out for drinks or
dinner or a movie, with friends, or else at home?? I guess it's
relevant if someone says they're home cleaning their rifle and
reading Mein Kampf or survivalist manifestos in a room with one
exposed light bulb hanging from a frayed electrical cord from the
ceiling -- that would be information you could use in your
But seriously, the 'what' doesn't really matter, it's the 'who
with' that counts.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
1.Have never seen Breakfast at Tiffany's.
2.When I return my grocery cart to the cart corale I always
straighten out the carts. Not because I'm anal because I'm
definitely not. But have you seen those kids out there in the
blazing hot sun in the summer or the frigid frosty wind in winter
retreiving the carts and they're all just in there all pointing
different directions like at the bumper cars when you are trying to
find the one you want? It's a simple courtesy that takes no time at
all. If you get nothing else from my profile at least make the
commitment to straighten the carts at the grocery store. Then if I
see you doing it maybe I'll approach you there! It will go
something like this -- Me: "I see you straighten the carts. I do
that too." You: "Yeah, some guy made a point about it on OKCupid so
I started doing it too." Me: ".......THAT WAS ME!!"
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if my being a work-in-progress is okay with
you. I am a little reserved at first but getting to know me will
bring out a perspective you will hopefully have fun with. I do get
a kick out of myself sometimes. :-)
