Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Bright, caring, SWPM with eclectic interests desires bright, caring
SWPF for fun and more, and hopefully a long-term relationship. I
like dinner and shows, but especially quiet time getting to know
each other. Most joy in life comes from the simplest things and
building special relationships along the way. I really want a
companion, partner, and soul mate, who will be as caring,
committed, loyal, and loving to me as I am to her. Maybe I am at
the point in my life where I have more questions than answers.
Maybe you are too. Maybe we can find them together!
P.S. Just getting together for fun times isn't bad either, and a
great place to start!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Helping my sisters and family and friends; trying to do excellent
work at my job to help my clients; pursuing some of my personal
interests in my spare time; and trying to find you!
I’m really good at

(Joke) creative self-delusion. You know: Thinking that I am
important, or my job or some task is important or matters, etc. It
can be great motivational device to help me focus and get something
Seriously though, I am good at bringing a lot of focus and energy
to things that are important to me, including helping my family and
friends, my job, and being a good partner in a relationship.

I like jazz, rock and some folk music, and have been to concerts by
Stan Kenton, Maynard Ferguson, George Benson, Elton John,
Aerosmith, Heart, Yes, Pink Floyd and others, and would like to do
more. I am a guy and I like action and adventure movies, and also
like dramas, science fiction, epics and some fantasy movies. I
think Titanic, Pearl Harbor, Kingdom of Heaven, and Last of the
Mohicans are terrific. TV series can be better than many movies
since they have time for plot and character development and are not
constrained to fit in a two hour window. I enjoyed musicals
including West Side Story and Wicked. In terms of books, I read a
lot at my work, so I don;t do as much recreational reading as I
would like, so right now I am better at buying and collecting them
than reading them.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The words "never" and "always", since they are never true and there
are always exceptions or special circumstances.
Seriously, here are some of the things I like:
1. getting together with family and friends for the holidays,
special occasions or otherwise;
2. playing chess and Scrabble and other board games;
3. reading science fiction, fiction, history or other
4. learning -- lots of people and places and things fascinate
5. travel, I have traveled some throughout the U.S. (Florida and
San Diego are nice, but so are local trips like to French Lick IN
and the Wes Baden Springs Hotel for a romantic weekend Look it up
on the internet!]) and to England, Vancouver, the Bahamas and
Puerto Rico (some great food there!), and hope to do more;
6. work, and feeling like I have accomplished something and been

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Taking my sister and 2-1/2 year old nephew out to dinner; going out
to dinner or to a movie or a show or watching sports with friends;
or relaxing after a busy week at home. I don't go out on that many
dates and would like to do more, and find someone special to build
a lasting relationship with. I think it is through our
relationships that our lives often have their greatest meaning and
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In this public forum is that I turned down an internship with NASA
for one in banking. It may have been a bad career move, but I did
it to be near my parents, who both had health problems, and to help
them and I would do it again. Besides, I can try to tell myself
that NASA, during the misbegotten space shuttle era, was probably a
miserable bureaucracy to work for anyway. There is probably some
truth in that.
