Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This seems a bit ridiculous after all these years, but I would
still like to find a truly interesting man who can walk and talk
and think and share honestly. We all need a companion who makes us
feel safe and liked and still alive, I now know that age has
nothing to do with this. That need doesn't just dry up and go away
because the 70 milestone is behind us. I am still the same woman I
was at 40 but wiser and funnier and far more interesting. The body
is not perfect but far from ugly, the face still smiles, the laugh
is ready. Yes...I work as House Director for 180 sorority girls at
Carolina but I have tons of spare time and I want to fill it with
great conversation and wonderful hugs from a man who is not afraid
of my advanced age or my advanced wit or my charming personality.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am House Director for a great sorority in Chapel Hill but I spent
much of my life writing and broadcasting and selling. I have
written hundreds of columns and commentaries and broadcast the
commentaries and so many commercials. I was Advertising Director
for a magazine in DC for six years. I have created and communicated
and negotiated, led groups and taught and learned. I am still me
and I still do and go and teach and learn.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am really good at making people comfortable, at talking and
listening, at laughing at myself and my stupid foibles. I have been
told many times that I make others feel good about themselves but I
am not out to change anybody. Bring me your best and I will give
you mine. I an also good at dancing, decorating, living.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile is the first thing people notice about me and I smile a
lot. Then they notice that I am still attractive in spite of my
years, relatively slender and erect.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read or listen to dozens of books and seldom even notice the
titles. Yes, I read all three "Shades of Gray." I thought
McCullough's "John Adams" was memorable,, read all of Elizabeth
Berg's books and Anita Shreve and Anne Tyler and so many others.
Loved "It's Complicated" and all of Meryl Streep's movies. I see so
many - love movies. Live theatre is the best of all and music,
especially the Blues, great dance music, some country and lots of
folk have different powers. Who doesn't love great food and wine
-preferably shrimp, pasta, wonderful soups and salads and exquisite
Creme Caramel, cookies,any pie....and yogurt.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My daughters, my grandchildren, laughter, hot water, soap and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having early dinner with a friend or friends, watching TV, going to
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am really 79, not 76, but most men can't handle 76 and 79 would
send them running to the hills. The way I figure it....I don't look
or act 70 so I really should put my age at 60.
