Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am Lost, Dazed, and Confused
I am a mature (sometimes) male looking to re-enter life as a human
being, after a number of years as a semi-hermit vegetable.
(Well I finally found someone who would risk breaking their camera
and take a picture of me. And lo and behold the camera
survived....sort of....I think. Nikon's are tough cameras. Now I
need to talk them into it again as the ponytail is gone.)
I am open to any of the relationships listed: New friends
, Long-term dating,
Short-term dating, Activity partners
Long-distance penpals, and of course Casual encounters (sex
partners) - I am a DIRTY OLD Man after all.
What expect to gain from OkCupid are friends & activity
partners locally and friends/penpals anywhere. I am not sexist,
racist or ageist so feel message me whoever you are. Ignore the age
range in the "Looking For" section friends of any age are
I have noticed that my highest scores in "Match" and "Friend" seem
largely with people ten or more years younger that me. I
think(hope) this means that I have a younger outlook on life and am
not just a Dirt OLD Man.

Thinking outside the box.
Playing devils advocate.
Solving OTHER PEOPLE'S computer problems (never seem to have time
to completely finish my own)
Laughing at myself
Driving: After 2 million miles and 30+ year of driving I discovered
my license was under suspension (for over 5 years), for a seat belt
ticket! Now I have to start just like a 16 year old, G1 for one
year then (broke down and did Drivers Ed 8months and passed into
G2), G2 for another, THEN my G license like a real driver. (There
is a story behind all this......a real comedy of errors)

They never tell me. They are either running in terror or pointing
at me and laughing too hard to talk.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read/watch Sci-Fi and Fantasy for entertainment/escapism. I am
very bad at trying to pick a favorite as it changes with my
I use an Asus Transformer Tablet (Android) as an eReader and carry
it with me most of the time....have read most of the Baen Free
Library. (and low and behold the local library system supports
Android but not Linux, which my other computer run.)
I tend to use the Internet and magazines for reading in my areas of
non-fictional interests; science & technology, history and
Music, well if they ain't "sangin & twaging' about their broken
hearts (hard country), or rapping about killing cops, there is a
good chance I will like it.
But Weird Al has a special place in my musical heart.
Oh ya I Love Bagpipe
music, you know where the
musician looks to have a cat under his arm with its tail in his
mouth and it sounds about the same.
I enjoy playing games (role playing, board and computer stratagy
games) not head games. I have played D&D for nigh on 3 decades
and worked in the industry for many years.
My favorite meals are the ones I didn't make.

There is very little in life I have not done without at one time or

will face at work and in my life.
