My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
UPDATE: I answered three questions about physical fitness and suddenly my arrogance score under Personality shot off the chart. So if being able to do a lot of push-ups makes me arrogant, so be it. Hey, I was in Afghanistan for a year--there's nothing else to do outside work except go to the gym.
Hello and thanks for dropping by. My sister told me my last profile wasn't informative enough, so I decided to start afresh. So here goes. I'm a 47yo DWM ultimately seeking what I think most people want: to share the rest of my life deeply in love with my best friend. That's pretty simple, right? Sadly, there's this whole dating thing we need to negotiate first, hence the profile.
So, about me: I'm the proud father of two amazing, wonderful children who are kicking butt in college (like I said, I'm a proud papa.) Their mother and I have an amicable relationship limited to discussing (a) the kids and (b) how to light the gas fireplace. I'm glad my kids are old enough to allow me the free time to have a social life and I'm interested in finding someone in a similar situation.
Professionally, I work as a defense contractor. I was hoping as a child to become a professional basketball player, but genetics took care of that. Retired from the Army after 21 years and 13 moves. Needless to say, I enjoy traveling and am looking forward to doing more of it now that I don't have to carry a rucksack and rifle.
Personally, I enjoy cooking and hope to find someone with whom I can swap out duties as sous chef. If you know what EVOO is, but don't use the term, we'll get along fine. I'm the Lord of Thrift Stores. Seriously, the cashiers know me by name. I enjoy hitting the gym regularly and would like to find someone equally interested in physical fitness. Like Vince Vaughn, I'm a phenomenal dancer. Politically, I lean a bit to the left, but more pragmatic than ideological. I'm generous to a fault and waitresses love me. At least I think they do cause they all call me honey or sweetie or darlin'. I have been known to blurt out the wrong answer to every question on Jeopardy: Alex: "This city is the capital of Chile." Me: "What is 9?" Not sure about dating outside my race. Not opposed to it, just haven't experienced it.
A few requests: Please have pics posted. Please be local, as in within 50 or so miles. (Not that I don't appreciate all the messages from you Lithuanian girls, but that just ain't gonna work.)
My old profile had a laundry list of traits I was looking for in my ideal mate, and I think that turned off some potential matches. So no list. Except this: if you don't appreciate a man who's a gentleman AND will treat you like a lady, then pass me by. I'm sorta old school that way. So, if you like what you read (and saw, especially all that man-candy goodness I'm working with), then drop me a note. Thanks!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Staying very busy at work and even busier on the weekend. Looking for a partner to share the adventure!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hmm, let's see: being a father, cooking, dancing, singing, my job, organizing stuff. But what you want to know is what I'm NOT good at: math, Excel (makes sense), and using a touch pad. I am the Sir Mix-a-Lot of smartphones: I like big buttons and I cannot lie.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My nose and how the rest of my face can hold up such bulk. ;-) Then, it's a toss-up: my eyes, smile, or shoulders.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: the classics. MA in English, go figure. If you're nice, I'll recite Milton. If you're bad, Byron.
Movies: love 'em. All of 'em. Even stupid French movies where nothing happens. Love that.
Food: you gonna finish that?
Music: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Simply Red, Redbone, Black Eyed Peas, Black Sabbath, Frank Black, Black Oak Arkansas, Black, The Black Crowes, Plain White Tees, Barry White, The White Stripes, White Snake, Deep Purple, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Pink, Pink Floyd, Blue Oyster Cult, Blue Swede, Climax Blues Band, The Blues Brothers, The Moody Blues, Shocking Blue, Blue Indigo, Blues Traveler, Ole Blue Eyes, James Brown, Jackson Browne, Green Day, Cee-lo Green, Al Green, Norman Greenbaum, Maroon 5, King Crimson, David Gray, Agent Orange, Aqua, Cream, Golden Earring, Andrew Gold, and Yello. Oh, Shakira. She's really great, too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My two amazing, incredible, wonderful college-aged kids.
Platelets, cause let's face it, everyone bleeds.
A morning cup o' Joe.
Someone wonderful on whom to lavish love and affection.
Windex.
I know that's only 5, but that's all there is to life, really. Oh, bacon. (I cure my own at home, btw. Aaaand...suddenly you're finding me a lot more attractive, right? I thought so.)
There, that's six. (Now get off my back, okCupid robot Nazi!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I've been thinking a lot recently about the economic future of our country and how young people today are facing a much less promising outlook than I/we did. That has me concerned.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either catching up on a movie I inevitably didn't get a chance to see in the theater or out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My outer ears are sorta hairy and require a degree of grooming I find disturbing. And I have a HUGE crush on CNN commentator Frances Fragos Townsend. Call me, Fran. Anytime.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 34–52
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Oh, c'mon, you already know why you want to send me a message. Now tell me why. And for all you 90% match / 10% enemy gals out there, write to me! We're practically the same person! I promise I won't think less of you.
