My self-summary
After 20 years in Europe, I've moved back to the U.S. to work on a couple of books and see what other mischief I can cause. Just getting settled here, and yes, a lot has changed.

I'm a healthy older guy with a bewildering variety of interests in life (which is okay: I'm a writer, so it's part of the job description), loves to travel, talk with brainy people, and cook. I decided at the start of '11 that the only things even remotely worth pursuing are love and beauty, and, with the uncertainty of the former, I'm hell-bent on the latter. And totally open to the former, of course.

Looking for a younger woman who can inspire me and whom I can inspire, who's also old enough (I believe in the "French number," which is half your age plus 7 or more: most of my friends fit into that slot, and partners have to be friends, too, obviously) to be an appropriate partner. If the age thing offends you (as it does some folks) we won't get along anyway. It's what experience has shown me that works best. In short, job description here is friend, lover, and partner: personal, and maybe professional.

You also have to have your own life and interests. The words "tomboy," "geek," and "nerd" are not insults here, tall is good, and so is eccentric, within limits.

I think this is possible. It's almost happened a couple of times recently. It could happen again tomorrow.

So...what are you doing tomorrow? Up for a challenge? Don't be afraid to send a note: I'm an engaging correspondent if the person on the other end of the exchange fascinates me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a writer. I've been a writer since I was 16. I really don't see that changing. Along the way, I've done other things, of course: radio, for one, and I've run a couple of magazines. Remember magazines?

Right now, I'm hoping to sell a book which'll keep me hopping for the next couple of years.

I moved to Europe 20 years ago, and I liked it there for the most part, but Americans aren't terribly welcome in some places, including France, where I lived for the last five years. In my case, I say that's their loss, but the U.S. isn't very friendly to foreigners, either. I'm happy to have learned how to navigate Europe, and look forward to visiting in the future. Wanna join me?
I’m really good at
Writing, cooking, playing with ideas, listening, observing, and translating my observations into words, which frequently form opinions. Listening to people and helping them discover ways in and around situations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm opinionated. And I don't look like I sound on the radio. (Chances are pretty good you've heard me if you live in the U.S.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I make my day-to-day living with everything but the movies and the food, so forgive me for not being too specific.

I read a lot of history, fiction (both genre and literary), and travel books. That's one advantage of moving back to the U.S.: English-language bookshops aren't awfully prevalent in Europe.

I don't go to movies or watch TV, although I'd like to remedy the movie end of that.

As for music, it's easier to say what I don't like: opera (for the most part), Latin and Brazilian music (just never got to me), most classical music between, oh, Mozart and Stravinsky, "indie rock," whatever that is.

Same with food. I like what I cook best (Italian, French, Cajun, Indian, Chinese) and what I can't cook I like to eat out (Vietnamese, Mexican, Japanese).
The six things I could never do without
Travel
Books
Art
Brilliant conversation

I spend a lot of time thinking about
how all of this is going to play out, and what's coming down the pike.
On a typical Friday night I am
reading, sometimes listening to music, but generally staying home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that, at the moment, I'm still trying to figure this one out.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 40–58
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
any of this sounds intriguing. Or you think you'd intrigue me. Because you might, you know.
