Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My present circumstances are I'm retired, active, living a healthy
lifestyle and enjoying activities that make me happy.
I am presently single, a two-time widower, and would not mind
having someone in my life to share future experiences with.
Recently I've spent quite a lot of time traveling (by car) during
the warmer parts of the year to escape the Louisiana heat and visit
friends while exploring parts of the country (the cooler parts)
that I had not been to before.
I don't take myself too seriously and like to have fun / kid
around. I often plan my activities with spontaneity on the
spur-of-the-moment based on how I feel at that time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm enjoying retirement by making new friends, keeping active, and
traveling away from the heat during the summers.
I’m really good at

- Trying out new activities that I haven't experienced.
- Keeping a good sense of humor and not taking things TOO
- Recognizing and adapting to different personalities.
- Being completely honest and straightforward.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I prefer non-fictional reading to novels.
I don't constrain myself to musical genres. If my "ears like it"
then I like it. I do have a general bias towards classic (70's era)
Rock and Roll.
I can be an adventurous eater when the opportunity presents but I
do shy away from overly spicy foods and am not a fan of desserts.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Exercise (and other stress release activities)
- Supporting my favorite sports teams: Chicago White Sox, Arizona
Cardinals, Chicago Bulls, Chicago Blackhawks and Northwestern
Wildcat Football and Basketball (Evanston, Illinois)
- Financial security
- Learning new things
- Maintaining a balance in my daily activities
- Keeping a good sense of humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Enjoying the here and now instead of negative things that have
happened in the past.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have no typical nights, Fridays or otherwise. But I enjoy all
sorts of activities including golfing when I can; going to gym
workouts; anything else that catches my interest; or just staying
at home and relaxing-as long as it keeps me from being too lonely
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I love to talk, especially if you let me, and I may change
topics on you every five minutes if you are not careful!

Please keep in mind that even though I wander in the summer, at

of my home in Shreveport
