Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a man who is very much alive, vibrant, curious, passionate and
empathetic. I am looking for a like-minded woman.
I'm a published writer and professor. I've written about everything

I'm more likely to be on my bicycle watching the trees fly by or
cooking a good meal.
In short, I want to spend my time with someone I'm impossibly
attracted to and who I can go all in with. If you'd like someone to
laugh and play with, who thinks holding hands is glorious, who
thinks kissing is even more so and who will have your back, send me

So many books, so little time. From Heart of Darkness to Seabiscuit
to Hemingway's short stories. I have entire wall full of
friends--i. e., books. Music? All kinds, really. Blues, opera,
jazz...whoops, add rap and heavy metal to the "no" category. Food?
Love so many types of cuisines. So many good things to eat. I love

chance, go with your heart. Please, no long distance relationships.
