Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Time for a little updating. My avatar Snuffyspop is no longer
accurate but OKCupid wants me to pay for the privilege of changing
it. Snuffyspop was an homage to my childhood pug and became sort of
a nickname for me. Unfortunately OKCupid removed photos of Snuffy
from my profile without my permission saying they were
inappropriate and a violation of their terms of service. Really?
Pet photos abound and those who post them show their love by doing
Anyway I recently adopted a beautiful four year old pug from a
rescue I volunteer with. He is a godsend. I've named him Smitty
after my late father who came up with Snuffy for our first pug. So
that's my story and I'm sticking to it. I've posted a photo of him
on my profile.
Ok back to the basics. I'm the nice Jewish boy, now all mature and
grown up, that your mother wanted you to date when you were
I prefer someone who can hold a conversation for more than fifteen
seconds without it turning to her ex. Looks are less important than
a New York attitude. Brooklyn ladies are especially but not
exclusively my choice.
I am degreed, politically savvy and know the difference between a
salad and a shrimp fork. I prefer watching to participating in
I have a terrific, and slightly off-beat, sense of humor. I enjoy
long Sunday drives to nowhere in particular, The Bay Area, flea
markets, rock and roll, jazz, big bands, the arts and the Dodgers.
Hey, I'm originally from Dem Bums hometown. I love kids, dogs and
Age wise, I'm looking for someone who recalls when the Beatles
performed together. Although not particularly religious I was
raised Jewish but religion is a state of mind over matter and if
you don't state it it doesn't matter. Tobacco breath is a no-no, as
is drug use. Social drinking is a yes-yes. Past relationships are
ok just as long as they stay there. Past baggage is not a problem.
I've got a steamer trunk full but with a cyber lock to which I've
forgotten the combination.
Now that you know something about me, tell me all about yourself.
Let’s meet for coffee and conversation and take it from there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living the Vida Loca since I retired. Volunteering to help my
fellow veterans. I recently began working with a group to feed the
less fortunate. I also volunteer with a dog rescue group that
specializes in pugs and pug mixes, my favorite breed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading other people's BS.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm a Trekkie - but only the original series and its TV and movie
offspring. Ferengis are my favorite aliens.
I read primarily non-fiction and am liberal leaning politically,
but not so far to the left that it becomes the polar opposite of
the Tea Party. life is so much more interesting than fantasy. I
just finished reading Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean. Who
The New York Times and even the New York Post are superior to the
LA LA Land Times.
Give me tickets to a big band concert or REAL rock and roll shows
and I'm satisfied.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
We can discuss that over dinner.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm thinking I'm thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually out bonding with close friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I never would put that on-line. What a foolish question to be out
there in cyberspace for all the world to see.
