Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Who can take tomorrow
And dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow
And collect up the cream
The Candyman can
Causes he mixes it with love...
I work at a hospital and some of the nurses refer to me as “The
Candyman”. Probably because I try to always keep a supply of
chocolate in my locker for them. They sometimes need a little
boost, having a bad day, patient not responding well to treatment,
or just finishing the 4th 12 hour shift in a row. I wish I could
separate the sorrow, can't, just do what I can.
I'm very happy with my life now, but there is room for improvement
that can be brought but that special lady that I'm searching for. I
want someone to do things with and for.
Now for the serious stuff:
I'm a firm believer in freedom of choice as long as it brings no
harm to others.
I smoke, trying to quit, but from the questions on this site I
would be better off to be running some sort of scam to take
advantage of you ladies. I keep my nasty habit clean, and never,
never blow smoke in the faces of non-smokers. Smoking still a deal
breaker, package deal much more than a single bad habit.
I'm a house keeping lead man in a veterans hospital by choice. You
have a "REAL MAN" who has carried his load, and part of ours, for
his whole life and who is humiliated because he is sick and can no
longer take care of himself. Who is going to clean up behind him,
treating him with kindness and respect? Not much money in this.
I'm a member of Mensa. Don't go to meetings but I love the
information I receive from them. Only a very few people are aware
of this fact. I did nothing to acquire the intelligence, my freedom
of choice here is only how I use it.
I enjoy the company of women more than men. Tired of hearing of
their macho days, fighting, drinking, chasing women etc. Give me a
good discussion on home improvement, landscaping, or how to deal
with the current going on of our children.
In a nutshell, I'm gentle but strong enough to bare the winds of
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Gee, good question. How about living it to the fullest possible,
even without a mate. If this means my goals for the future, the
future is not written and I learned the hard way that the best laid
plans of mice and men ....
From the movie "Harvey"
Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world,
Elwood, you must be" – she always called me Elwood – "In this
world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well,
for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote
—James Stewart as Elwood P. Dowd
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a very high mechanical aptitude, can fix or repair almost
any thing. I'm also very good at getting along with almost
everyone. Oh, less I forget, random acts of kindness.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I always have a smile and comment for everyone. They say I'm a nice
guy so if you're into “bad boys” I guess you have to keep looking.
I tried but they said I wasn't pulling it off. Sorry for your loss
if this is what you want.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll read almost anything, and I have, except romance novels. I
might like them but I still haven't read one. My current favorite
is Dean Koonz.. Movies are varied, mostly adventure,but who didn't
enjoy Shriek., Shows, Castle, Criminal Minds, etc. Music, Ventures,
Floyd Cramer, and most other types. Only thing about music, I must
understand the vocal, and the song must not be vulgar. Food,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My faith, my family, books, music, friends, creative thinking
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What age is too young for me. And why does every one on this site,
(including me), expect a different result when we keep trying the
How do I let you all know the man I really am? A lot of you say you
like intelligent men. How can I phrase my answer without sounding
arrogant? You want kindness, why would you believe what I say? You
want someone to have fun, do I list the 100 ways I can put a smile
on you face. You exercise and want someone in good health, does
running a weed eater for 6 hrs. straight in a tall field of grass
count. Some of you look at the age, my dad was mowing a friends
grass at 85 and mom is still going strong. I've probably have
another 25 years of active life.
