I don't have a premium OKCupid account, so on the off-chance you click on "like", I won't see it, drop me a message and let me know! That would make my day! :)
That said, I'm definitely in the "second half of life" where giving becomes much more important than receiving. I am very easy going, somewhat easily amused and curious about virtually everything. I'm self-employed in the video and audio production business. I avoid drama (unless it's make-believe.)
I am intelligent, curious and loyal to a fault. I have a well-developed, if not a little twisted, sense of humor.
What I’m doing with my life
Somewhere along the line I turned into what I used to jokingly call
a "sandal-footed do-gooder", this is particularly odd as I do not
actually wear sandals. I have a zippy 2-seater sports car and I
like to head up to northern New Mexico and enjoy the beautiful
scenery and the twisty mountain roads, it would be exceptionally
nice to have a companion along for the ride, I find that a lot of
great conversation can be had on a drive through beautiful scenery.
I’m really good at
Being a loyal, supportive and fun companion.
The first things people usually notice about me
As an observer, I've been in the back of the room noticing them
first. When they do notice me, I will generally say, "Hi." So, I
guess the first thing they notice is that I'm friendly. :-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm more drawn to comedies than drama. I generally prefer non-fiction books. I like to listen to what is usually called "pop" music, although, I draw the line at Contemporary Country. I like spicy food, particularly New Mexican. (For those of you from out of town, New Mexican food is significantly different than Mexican food.) By the way, I'm really not much of a sports fan and I am quite progressive politically.
The six things I could never do without
The Internet, Green Chile, laughter, music, intellectual pursuits,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Always needing to learn, take in information about the world. I like having at least a theoretical explanation about why things happen as they do. I spend a lot of time thinking about the Universe, seriously. I've also been thinking about how OK Cupid has been overrun with a LOT of fake profiles lately.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually at home, however, I did spend thirty years in the music
business as a producer/manager, so I do like to occasionally go out
and hear live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
What I really miss the most is companionship.
You should message me if
You're fun, easy going and curious. You could message me just to say, "hello." Bonus points if you're a little geeky or at least, "geek friendly". I am looking for companionship that can potentially turn into a long-term, committed relationship, perhaps marriage. I'm interested in consistency, stability, respect, loyalty and companionship, and that works both ways. Ultimately, I want to love and be loved in return. (Is this too much to ask?)
