Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm college educated, and outgoing with a great personality and a
sense of humor. I love to make people laugh. I'm not a brain
surgeon but I fit comfortably into any social situation and can
carry on a conversation with literally anyone (brain surgeons, rock
stars, and world renowned leaders included... trust me!)! I enjoy
good conversation and visiting with interesting people.
I'm comfortable in a tux or jeans, whatever the occasion calls for,
and I like to dress up once in a while. I'm an intelligent guy with
depth who's smart enough to know what I don't know and secure
enough to admit it.
I am NOT romantically impaired and have no difficulty holding hands
in public. I can be serious, silly or even sexy depending on our
mood. I am far from "Joe Average." I love to travel and there's
still a lot I'd like to see and experience.
I have a strong will toward fun and excitement. I can be
spontaneous but also am able to relax and spend a quiet night alone
or with someone special. I am balanced between stability and an
occasional walk on the wild side.
I am simple, yet complex. Fun compassionate and affectionate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying retirement and looking toward a banner year in 2015!
Savoring the simple things.
I volunteer and work for a great military-related cause.
Helping my kids the best I can, preparing that legacy I'll leave
behind and along the way for life straight ahead!
I'm still a work in progress with lots of things to do!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Expressing myself through the written word (this profile is the
Enjoying and savoring all good things, especially food.
Patience, forgiveness and long-suffering.
Making people laugh.
Being a creative romantic.
Kissing... for sure!
And many other things that are worth the waiting for.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Tall, dark and... average? 😳
I've been told more than once I look a bit like Robert De Niro.
(Could be worse!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I really enjoy going to the movies. It’s an escape from the
realities of life and an opportunity to forget one’s problems. (I
could hang out in a theater all day and on occasion actually
Among my favorite movies -- those I can see again and again are --
It’s a Wonderful Life, Patton, Forrest Gump, The King's Speech, The
Shawshank Redemption, How Green Was My Valley, Cinderella Man, We
Were Soldiers, When Harry Met Sally, Waking Ned Devine, Planes,
Trains & Automobiles, Pride of the Yankees, Pulp Fiction, My
Dog Skip, Legends of the Fall, Little Big Man, A River Runs Through
It, You’ve Got Mail, The Stars Fell on Henrietta and yes ... I
admit it ... Dumb & Dumber.
I grew up on the rock music of the 60’s and 70’s, but as I’ve
“matured” I’ve grown to have an “eclectic” taste in music. I enjoy
most everything ranging from Bocelli and Sinatra to The Doobie
Brothers, Diana Krall to Delbert McClinton and everything
in-between. (I know ... “Delbert Who?” Check him out!) It just
depends on my mood at the time. Rock, Country, Jazz, Blues etc.
etc. Bring it on! I absolutely love music!
Rarely will I read anything other than non-fiction, although lately
I've wanted to expand my horizons. Real life’s as entertaining as
anything one can make up! Here are some of the recent books I’ve

Italian has always been my favorite, with Chinese and Thai close
behind, and I occasionally love a good steak.
I definitely appreciate a good cook.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Just six? 😳
Family & Friends
Humor, Smiles, Fun and Laughter
Intimacy, love, romantic from-the-heart kisses, and passion in all
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The present and the future
Things to laugh about
How'd they do that?
How not to waste my time and avoid the nonsensical
And finally, when will I ever get a round tuit?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
"Typical"? Not sure there is such a thing
Some examples would include eating out, going to the movies,
relaxing having fun, visiting with family and friends. Listening to
music -- live and otherwise -- and dancing the night away.
Getting out or staying in I can be content just to stay home and
relax, watching a movie or listening to my massive music library,
especially if it's with good company and good food.
The Friday night world is our oyster, even so Saturday night!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sleep in the buff! Yep, totally!
AND I used to be 6' 2" but lost an inch to gravity along the way.
What's up with that??
Beyond all the questions I've already answered here (many quite
personal and revealing) that's all I'm givin' up for the time
