Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After two marriages, two other committed relationships, and various
other involvements, the one thing I've learned about women is that
I haven't learned one thing about women. I suppose growing up
without sisters didn't help.
Assets: Smart, funny, honest, well-read. I can hold my own in
conversations on a variety of subjects. I'm a quick learner, and
have no problem with admitting when I've made a mistake. I consider
myself a feminist, and am not looking for someone I can dominate.
I'm not jealous or possessive. I'm a decent cook, and I keep a
Liabilities: No car, no property, no savings, no investments - I
totally live paycheck to paycheck. I can be judgmental and
curmudgeonly, and I do not suffer fools gladly. Oh yeah, and I
I don't really have any "type" that I'm attracted to. The only
common characteristics among the women who I've been involved with
are creativity and independence - kind of shooting myself in the
foot when it comes to long term relationships, I guess.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've worked at the Book Bin in Corvallis for nine years, the last
seven on the third floor supervising the catalog, online and
shipping departments. I'm also a bit of a Civil War buff,
especially Civil War photography and the U.S. Military Railroad. I
read, I watch films, I walk. I write. I've had some art training,
and hope to return to that when I hit Social Security age. I have a
few close friends, and a lot of acquaintances.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
More than one friend has mentioned that they noticed I don't have a
workplace persona, versus a friends persona, versus a family
persona. I'm just always me. I guess that's what I'm good at. I'm
also artistically talented, good at math and science, and an
excellent writer. And humble.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm going to go with my hair. I really have no idea. I should ask.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love the music of the Sixties and Seventies, and appreciate music
from earlier days, but stopped following new music in the late
80's, except for people (Springsteen, Costello, etc.) I already
knew. I've usually got a couple of books going, and my tastes range
widely, from Hammett and Chandler to Ursula K. Leguin and Tolkien
to Michael Chabon and Jonathan Lethem. The only TV shows I watch
regularly are The Daily Show and the Colbert Report. My movie
choices run the gamut from Kurosawa to "Clerks."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
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?
Right now, working at the Darkside Cinema. I'm there on Wednesday
and Friday nights, on top of my full-time job at the Book Bin.
