but how can that be true?
I still feel like a young hippie,
is the same true for you?
To me life is an adventure,
So let's make it a shared venture.
Are you willing to take a chance,
And join me in life's dance?
Cold weather drove me from New York City,
I loved it there, so that's a pity;
but living on a on a tropical island is not so bad,
So I have no reason to be sad.
An island is surrounded by the Sea,
Alas, no Mermaids looking for me.
Life can be perfect, that is true,
That is why I'm here looking for you.
Flowers seemingly growing out of my head,
on this island they are widespread,
but the sun, sand, and surf,
are also reasons for my mirth.
Because we are in different locales,
we must start by being pen pals.
A friendship that we can grow,
will never cause us any woe.
Friendship is a kind of love,
it is a gift from heaven above.
And perhaps it becomes romance,
if we only give it a chance.
But now, no more rhymes,
My poetry should be a crime.
I guess I am not a poet,
and now, I do certainly know it.
I hope you had as much fun reading my silly little poem as I had writing it. Although I now live on a Tropical Island Paradise, I will relocate anywhere in the world for my dream of Romantic Love, even to Hell (Norway) which I have already seen frozen over. After all, the fiery cauldron of love will always melt snow.
My dream is someone to share with me ... companionship ... affection ... fun times ... love. Who walks upright on two legs, and can carry on an intelligent conversation beyond "bow-wow." (See link http://youtu.be/lJ7AfSO2fKs ) Most importantly however, they must find the following more enticing than a bone...
The candle-lit dinner completed, the band begins to play our song. Our fingers touch, and we glide onto the dance floor. I hold you close and whisper sweet nothings into your ear. As the music stops, just standing there, melting into each other's arms, feeling the gentle heartbeat and the softness of your flesh. To walk, arm in arm along a deserted moon-lit beach. Then, as we reached the doorstep we laugh, jump and play like children. We rush up the stairs leading to an outdoor balcony, where our nest overlooking the moon-lit sea awaits us. And then, and then, oh joy, wonder and delight as we move into the mystery of the night.
So, how do I summarize myself? How about: My name is Charlie and I'm a really nice, but unconventional, guy who you would enjoy getting to know.
I have many facets, some serious, and others silly and light-hearted. I am a paradox, both simple and complex at the same time. I'm eclectic, eccentric, intelligent, a free-spirit yet responsible, honest, and playfully cheerful. I have a warped sense of humor and can laugh at myself. I live life to the fullest. However, the most paradoxical thing about me is that I am extremely shy with women. Why this is so I have no idea, it is out of character with the rest of my life. I guess it is because I was a Nerd when I was young.
Actually, except for my shyness with women, being a Nerd was not such a bad thing. I went to an Ivy League university (Columbia), and co-authored a book with two of my professors. I was a paid staff member of a national presidential campaign committee (Governor Jerry Brown 1976). I worked as a Stage Technician in New York's Broadway Theater, and later as an officer in their Union (IATSE). Finally, I was a pioneer in the revolution that changed the world.
At a time when all the experts knew those little "home computers" (1977 Apple ][) could never serve any useful purpose. I helped develop a program for Stock Market Analysis which downloaded data from a remote mainframe for local processing and analysis - 10 years before the Internet did the same thing.
A major financial information company "Dow Jones & Co." decided to distribute this program. That gave me the financial security, and freedom, to retire to the tropical island of my dreams, at the age of forty. (Description of my lifestyle is given in "what I am doing with my life" section below.)
I have used an address in the states as my address on this site since proximity is used in Quiver/Quick Matches, as well as any searches I do. Sometimes a person is forced to be pragmatic. The nearby Caribbean Sea does not have a lot of English speaking mermaids who are members of OKcupid.
If you are disappointed by the fact we will begin as long-distant pen pals, be assured, it is the safest way to proceed. We must set the sails, we must get to know each other. You know nothing about me, except I said "I'm a nice guy." But over time our qualities, both positive and negative, will become apparent as we communicate and expose our inner being. While our bodies may not touch, our minds can. We can grow in intimacy, exploring every nook and cranny of each other's mind and soul. Being pen pals need not be the ultimate destination, it may only be the course we have charted to get there.
But the first step is to contact me and let me know you're interested. As I have said I am extremely shy, and it is unlikely I will reach out to you.
