Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a regular guy. I'd even go so far as to say a nice guy. I know,
I know, every guy says that but in this case it's true. I invite
you to find out for yourself... ;-)
I'm a bit on the quiet side, sometimes, not really inclined to be a
loud knuckle-dragging, beer guzzling, brute of a caveman. Think
more along the lines of a tall, dark, handsome hunk like Fabio (ten
extra points if you know who I'm talking about). Okay, maybe
without the flawless good looks but lots better 'cause I'm for real
and just as capable of slaking your thirst for passionate
I am very tall, quite intelligent, polite, considerate, loving,
passionate, sensual, and understanding. I'm pretty comfortable
saying that I have a good sense of humor. Making plans to do things
with my partner is fine. And I also like to do things/suggest
things/hear suggestions about things to do on the spur of the
moment (sometimes spontaneity is a wonderful spice for life).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working 40/week in the retail world. I got caught up in a perfect
storm of corporate stupidity just before the rest of the country
did and three thousand of us found ourselves getting a nasty lesson
in career rationalization along with so many things that go along
I'm not inclined to whine about that, though (at least not to
regular people [if you hold elected political office, however,
beware...], and, don't worry, I'm N-O-T looking for a sugar-momma.
Wouldn't accept one if she came up and bit me in a way I liked.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not necessarily in order of importance: Listening. Understanding.
Intelligent conversation. Thinking. Kissing, cuddling,
slow-dancing, and associated activities [ ;-) ] Writing. Sorta good
at working with computers. Figuring out when a good car's about to
go bad although it would be a mistake to think that I can do
anything to correct its course without the aid of an experienced
automotive repair technician. Getting along with and understanding
pets. Learning. Finding new things to learn. I really don't have
any trouble doing that at all. If you have anything you'd like to
ask about in terms of my skill level, just ask and I'll tell you
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty tall and don't look as old as I am, maybe because the
gray mixes so well with the dark blond.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have eclectic tastes in books and music and movies.
For movies, I would have to say (no order of preference):Star Wars,
Star Trek, Body Heat, Back To The Future, Avatar, The Lady
Vanishes, Alien, Altered States, The Rear Window (with Jimmy and
Grace, not the newer version), Is Paris Burning?, Patton,
Apocalypse Now, Altered States, The Grand Canyon, Snow White And
The Seven Dwarfs, Fantasia. A little bit of everything...
Extreme Vinyl Cafe is a favorite book. As is Border Songs. The Arms
of Krupp. Ida Tarbell's History of the Standard Oil Company. The
Tyranny of Oil. Am about, I think, to pick up a copy of The Gun
Seller by Hugh Laurie (read a free chapter from B&N and liked
it quite a bit. Who'd a thunk an actor could write?).
For music: I don't like absolutely everything I hear, of course,
but I like examples of everything from Gregorian chants to a little
bit of Modern (like Copland, for instance). Rock-N-Roll. A little
bit of classic Country and Western. Quite a bit more of the more
recent cross-over C&W. Pop. Folk. Not quite there with Leonard
Cohen, but do like the late Stan Rogers. Adult Contemporary. Easy
listening. Old enough to have seen, heard, and appreciated the
likes of John Denver and Harry Chapin and Gordon Lightfoot and
Henry Mancini. And, oh my goodness, I forgot classic Motown! Good
grief, how could I?
Having finally entered (okay, having been dragged kicking and
screaming [metaphorically speaking] into) the 21st Century I find
YouTube a most fascinating way to enjoy songs and television shows
and movie bits from days of yesteryear.
And I like bagpipe music. Of many types. I MIGHT even learn to play
the pipes one day. Hope that ain't a deal breaker for you...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Never is an awful long time. If one thing led to another, push came
to shove, and something happened, I think I could cope. Given all
that, the short list includes:
2.Clothing (this is Ohio, you know...)
4. Computer and Internet access.
5. Things to learn and people to love.
7. The above are not in any particular order of importance to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ways to better my life, find something I really want and like to do
for a living.
I spend a good deal of time wondering how we all got to be where we
are today and how to work to make a better future for this great
country of ours.
And I wonder if I should write a new profile. I've had this one up
since I first joined up quite some time ago.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Getting to bed on time so I can get up and go to work on Saturday.
Retail, you gotta love it...
Now this particular statement isn't etched in stone. If you think
you might have a better idea, please run it past me. I'm just
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't think I'm going to type that out here at this time. Who
doesn't like a man of mystery? And, too, we need something to talk
about once we meet...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
1. You think I'm H-O-T.
B. You don't know whether you like what you see here or not and/or
want to clarify a point or two.
III. You don't like what you see but you're curious about how
someone like me is allowed out of his cage.
