Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a fairly tall guy. I'm 6'1" and weigh about 165 or so. I'm a
college graduate, actually a graduate school graduate. I'm retired
now, just did that, but I worked as an engineer. I have 3 kids, but
as you might expect, they have their own lives and don't live with
me. I'm originally from Niagara Falls, NY. That's where 2 of my
kids are now, in college. I do a lot of athletic type things such
as running in races. I do OK, but I still try to improve by
training with my good friends a couple of time a week at Ft.
I love dinning out, especially with a good bottle of wine and a
great woman to enjoy the whole experience with. I love to cook
myself, but I'll let you decide how good I am.
If you're interested in having a good time and like good company
please consider contacting me. If you think I'm too old for you,
think again. Usually this isn't the case and I can leave you in the
Oh, a couple of things, I'm a non-smoker and really don't like
smoking at all. And I'm not a religious person. Down here in the
south that doesn't play very well, but that's the way I am. Please
don't try and change me.
I am Intelligent, Athletic, and easy going
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I do a lot of physical fitness kind of things. As I
mentioned above I run at my house and with my friends at Ft.
Chaffee. I also bike and swim. I run in races on many weekends, but
I like to travel to Ft. Smith or NWA on Saturday's to explore and
just interact with other people. I also still keep up with my kids
who are the greatest joy in my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at analyzing problems and finding solutions. I know a
thing or two about physical fitness. I'm a really fair person. And
I can fix lots of things. Right now I'm working on my Corvette
(1990). I've had that car since 1993. I have lots of stories about
that car. One day I'll tell you.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
They usually say I'm taller than they expected, and also how thin I
am. I take after my father in that respect. They also tell me I
don't look my age, but that's not always the case.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This is going to hurt a lot of you, but The God Delusion was a
really good book. I'm a fan of small, seldom seen movies. My
favorite is Fandango. It's one of Kevin Costner's first movies and
by his own admission his favorite. There are lots more of course. I
like 60's music and again, I like musicians that are not well
known. Have you heard of Spirit? Or Love? How about Shawn Phillips?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My interests in science
Yea there's more than 6 but who's counting.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can improve myself. Lately I've been thinking about getting a
PhD, or maybe starting a winery. Altus is a great town. That's just
a good word for a fun little town.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday's aren't that big for me right now. I go on a long run that
day and spend a lot of time afterwords recuperating from it. But
from time to time I go out for a drink or a cruise. I don't want to
become a hermit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Many people think I'm a mean guy. That comes from my home town in
New York. People are more direct if not forward there. But in
reality I'm a thoughtful guy who really doesn't want to hurt
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you like good conversation over a glass of wine or cup of
coffee. If you're not "in your face religious". If you'd like to
try and cook a nice dinner together, or maybe go out for a run. We
can meet at a 5K.
