Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
World View....I hope yours is similar to mine.
I am a very complicated guy. I work for myself and have lived
outside the US most of my life. I have also lived on both coasts. I
am a real mixed bag in terms or religion, politics, and lifestyle.
If you are a tantric life coach or a possible commentator on Fox
News ...most likely not for me.....looking for common sense sanity
(leaning to either side is fine) If you wouldn't feel comfortable
jumping on a plane and meeting me at a foreign airport we are
probably not right together. If you take hours to do your hair...we
are.....you get the idea. I don't want to be the person who
introduces you to the world....I am happy "tour guiding" you
through parts of the world I know, but you have to have some aspect
of the world you can teach me about. I would love to meet a well
travelled lady who is well versed in another culture. I also love
aspects of both urban and very remote parts of the world....I am
not a suburbs kind of guy.
If you have an ex-husband who is an anchor around your neck I'm
sorry I can't rescue you (tried it once before... to no avail). I
love art and appreciate eduction.If you NEED a man because you
can't pay your bills and don't have female friends I'm not the guy.
I like strong independent women. This doesn't mean I'm not picking
up dinner and don't intend to provide...it means if we are both
standing on our own two feet we will cover a lot more
I'm no super model but I look my age, clean up well, and am pretty
fit (hey, I live in a mountain town). I like women who are slim or
athletic. I am a sportsman and hope you are as well....I ski or run
almost everyday...this is why I work for myself.
I have a story for everything....I often feel like I'm in the movie
Big Fish. The Dos Equis man has nothing on me....except that dapper
look (just too young to pull that off).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm very entrepreneurial and always working on another business
I combine business and pleasure however and either ski or hit the
beach everyday depending on the season....
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"He's not from here." Funny thing is, no matter where I am they
always say the same thing. I'm the opposite of a chameleon
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books by John Burdett...I own 1000s of books....most unread....but
less TV and more reading recently.
Shantaram....lived in Mumbai and would often spot Greg Roberts in a
local coffee shop....I could literally feel what he was writing
Music: ATB, Buddha Bar, Silk Road Project
Movies: Out of Africa, I Dreamed of Africa, Donnie Brasco, Blow,
Patton, Shawshank Redemption, Sexy Beast, Last Samurai, Big Fish,
Kingdom of Heaven, The Wire, Notting Hill, anything by Takeshi
Kitano (I often see bits of myself in these movies)
My sense or humor is exemplified by Karl Pilkington in An Idiot
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Beach and the mountains (I love both)
Iced Tea....no sugar....spicy chai is ideal..
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to keep from being bored....
Where am I traveling next....
How did I end up alone....
How to keep from being bored (STILL thinking about that one as I
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Looking for a new restaurant.. Ideally ethnic food. Prefer Asian of
some sort ...but can be almost anything with a lot of
flavor.....Grandma's pot roast doesn't cut it.... Italian food is
not ethnic...it's a staple like bagels and cream cheese. If you are
prone to going to restaurants and afraid to try new things or moan
and groan about all the things you don't like I'm better to go
alone.....like I have for the last 20 years.... Not a huge drinker
but am happy to finish the night with a double espresso....
I am big on dinner parites but haven't had one in years as haven't
been with anyone who enjoyed them.
I live more like a European in the fact that I am out and about
enjoying life and not at home watching Wheel of Fortune.:).
Especially if I have someone to do things with......
In reality however Friday nights can be any night for me.....I
don't get up and "report" to anyone in the mornings.....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I know for sure I am one of the most interesting men most people
will ever meet....I'm absolutely positive of this. I have done
everything I ever dreamed of (except having lived in
Zaire....except Zaire isn't even a country anymore). BUT, I am
bored to tears. I guess that's why I enjoy the third world and
absolutely hate a suburban lifestyle.
