Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's see, where to begin? I live on the UWS. I retired from
business some time ago and spend my time dabbling in this and that.
Idle days in fine weather.
That said, I enjoy getting outdoors and am pretty active - fishing,
sailing, bicycling, swimming, tennis, hiking etc. (all at a very
modest pace). I also enjoy the usual suspects - dining out, cooking
in, movies, exploring the city, time travel, etc. I have a few
things I'm pretty passionate about, but we'll get to that when the
time comes, although rest assured, golf is not one of them.
I try to lead a modest, introspective, simple life, with an
occasional all out random binge of some form or another.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Kind of covered this in my riveting self-summary wouldn't you say?
I'd like to find someone interesting and fun to participate in
self-summary type activities, or try new and different ones, or
take on your activities as long as they don't involve shopping or
street fairs. The years are rolling by and I would really like to
find someone to enjoy life with.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Inexplicable facial tats? It's probably my gray hair - oh well, at
least I still have most of it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Nonfiction mostly, the New Yorker, the occasional novel, although
I've really cooled on fiction (lots of talk/thought, little
action). Any John McPhee addicts out there?
I watch a lot of movies and walk out on half the stuff I see. No TV
shows - just the news, PBS and infrequent sports. I don't even have
cable. My taste in music ended when my 8 track died in about
Food - I'll try anything once, but generally like fish, fruits and
veggies, Asian cuisine, spicy foods, etc.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sounds like something from a Vanity Fair celebrity profile, but
here goes: family, friends, food and water (count as two?), access
to a library, a pile of fishing gear and a car. There I said it
without mentioning a brand name. Well, maybe Chapstick too. Silence
can be pretty good as well.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The sorry state of the world and how seemingly hopeless we are and
then something really good and decent comes along and it restores
my faith that we'll figure this out before the thermosphere burns
off and we all burst into flames.
In other countries they use social media to foment revolution and
topple despots; here, people post pictures of their food on
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ballroom dancing? No, actually, probably just home (alone) in bed
by 10 with a book. We need to work on this and that is why we are
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I peed in my pants once.
I think I was four.
Don't tell anyone. Thanks!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested (and interesting). Some combination of
intelligent, fit, attractive, sane and/or self confident also
helps. Sense of humor? Not looking for a pen pal. If you live to
text, tweet and exchange endless emails, I'm not your guy.
