Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Half my life has flown-by in a short sixty years. I’m very fit and
try to live a healthy life. My Divorce was decreed in January 2008.
I live alone in a huge house in the center of a small town in which
I like to keep a low-profile and have my privacy.
I own my own home with a small mortgage, also the building adjacent
to mine with no mortgage. It is a huge house, not the plateau of
the American dream of owning a large home … a building on the
National Register-of-Historic Places. It’s a work in progress I
will complete and put in my rear-view … hopefully soon. An
albatross to soon fly ! .... Sooooon !
There is a giant kitchen … I love to cook, no-fear ! I also run a
mean grill ! … but have even less fear of dining-out ! I’ve three
working fireplaces and a nice wood-stove … but would gladly dig a
hole in the lawn for a proper fire for the right lady !
Although I do not attend church on a regular basis, I consider
myself a Unitarian. Mine is a deep belief that we are all free to
do as we please if it can be done in a kind way without injury or
burden to anyone else. Without a healthy, well-rounded approach,
you can’t help yourself and if you can't handle your own affairs,
you can’t be expected to help anyone else.
Thirty years ago, I walked the land like a giant, independent,
confident always prevailing. In the last decades, I’ve made my most
important strides forward, learning tolerance, humility and
acceptance. The farther you go the less you know … you just try to
do the very best you can !
I like ( love ) spontaneous ! We were stopped for coffee and a bite
last week, waiting to be served .. asked by the attendant … “are
you ready” … everyone ( including the attendant ) laughed when I
fired right back … “ I’m always ready ! “
If you've followed this to here ... thanks for spending time with
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
... trying to survive, look to the future and make good decisions !
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
.... good at about just everything I try ! ...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

it can be made soft enough to chew or small enough to swallow, I
can grill it !
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Love and romance ( a Companion to complete me ) We can do without
just about everything else !
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spent five years ( five-winters ) on Nantucket. It was bliss. The
air so clean. Scooping handfuls of sea-water … the taste was sweet
and pure. The way to travel on the ocean is to feel the pulse and
be able to step-out to feel and taste the spray. To me, it was one
of the most beautiful places on the planet ! Think of it often !
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My life is very independent ... normally wouldn't do something on a
Friday night I would't be flexible enough to do on any other night
... with the exception of Friday ... when Fringe was on !
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll admit ... private is private ! I am very discrete, both
trustworthy and trusted ! Secrets are secrets for a reason ...
you'll need more than a car battery and/or season tickets to make
me tell !
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I try not to take myself to seriously but hope you’ll find me
sincere. If we meet and there’s no spark .. not to worry. I don’t
know anyone that has too many friends. I’m hoping that the time we
live-in hasn’t precluded two people from meeting and simply
enjoying chatting, a movie, a meal or a walk down a new road.
