Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm idealistic, a realist, a romantic, in my life that's not a
Real love doesn't happen all that often so if I'm lucky enough to
find it again, I'd be willing to do whatever it takes.
For me, quirky is good. Someone imperfect, flawed, as am I.
I think I'm easy to talk to because I like to listen. I'm curious
about what's happening with my mate, communication is everything. I
need someone with whom the connection runs deep. Someone to talk to
so simple yet, so elusive.
I enjoy the out of doors which is the main reason I moved to Oregon
years ago. I love it here but still miss and am in contact with my
old friends. Making new friends is important to me so if it's not
love a friendship is always possible.
I'm monogamous and need the same in a partner. I hope to find one
woman to share my life, I'm way NOT into the poly thing which i've
learned is popular in this town. I'm open minded and can appreciate
people of all types but some things just gotta jive.
Politically I'm liberal, sexually straight, and I do not believe I
need to accept Jesus as my saviour or I'll burn in hell
I'm not looking for the perfect person as I don't believe that
exists, nor would i want someone "perfect" but i would love to find
someone who likes being with me as much as I do her, could she be
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living, learning, falling down, getting up, protesting, laughing,
riding, biking, walking, dreaming, and breathing.
I already miss Jon Stewart perhaps a little more than I'd care
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Communication. I like to think I'm good at it? I've doubted it as
here I am, single, writing on a dating website about things i'm
good at. I've three longtime friends who all met their wives on
websites just like this, two of them did it because i urged them
I've already lost my mother, father, and my brother. Also gone are
six dear friends who all died from various causes before they
Life lessons in empathy. I'm able to be there for others who are
suffering or experiencing loss, this doesn't scare me.
I love and appreciate good design and architecture. Organizing my
space is innate. I'm a Virgo. Allegedly Virgos are good at these
types of things, or so goes the myth. In my life it has way more to
do with where I come from, but thats another story...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Dunno. This is something I've given virtually no thought to and
doubt that I will anytime soon.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oh this is too big, too vast, I'll have to get back to this
Books, films, music, my taste is very eclectic, I like most forms
of music except country although there are a few exceptions, it
goes on ad infinitum.
David Bowie, Lou Reed, and Iggy Pop was were I began, since then my
musical tastes have branched out so widely I truly have no idea how
to sum it up in a few sentences. Perhaps, world music?
I gave up TV years ago but still have Netflix. I like drama,
foreign, or documentaries, if its a good comedy i'm in. Love all
things Wes Anderson! I don't tolerate most Hollywood crapola
comedies, nor do I seek out films where everything blows up, my
favs are films or books that transport me to another place, another
time, or give me a glimpse into another reality, stories about real
people would be my first choice.
I'm a huge fan of foreign cinema especially films from Spain,
Italy, the Netherlands, Brasil, Argentina, Japan, South East Asia,
I love Ingmar Bergman, Woody Allen, etc etc...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have a 18 year old son who lives in Brasil. He was born there and
although I visit him nearly every year, its never enough. Anyone
who is a parent can i am sure understand this. Because of him I am
eternally connected to Brasil, the Amazon region in particular
although now he's in Rio de Janeiro - Cidade Maravilhoso. I do not
have any other children so he occupies a great amount of my
thoughts. I'm forever wishing we we lived closer.
Triumph Motorcycles and vintage Porsches are my passions. I love my
machines, getting them dialed in, and going for a ride through the
country preferably towards the coast in search of a sweet spot for
a hike or swim or just to enjoy the day. Yes, driving gas powered
vehicles (especially for fun) goes against my environmental
convictions so I drive less and feel guilty only every other mile.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I might be found at an AA meeting, I've not drank alcohol in about
15 years which for me is a good thing. Perhaps this is a good time
to say I need a partner who is good with that. If drinking or drugs
are important to you then this won't be a match. I've no problem
with someone having a few drinks as long as getting drunk is not
the goal. I do not enjoy being around intoxicated people although
Hunter S Thompson is one of my favorite authors, chalk that up to
These days I'd likely be watching a film. I have low tolerance for
bad cinema but fortunately there's so many amazing movies being
made that's never a problem.
Or reading, never enough time to read all i want. Edward Abby is my
favorite author, his book Desert Solitaire is perhaps my fav book
of all time but thats a tuff call, way too many fine
I'd love to spend evenings/days/weeks/months/years with my partner,
I do miss that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a romantic who's been hurt and has retreated for perhaps too
long. I took myself outta the game, I hate the "game" part of
dating, can we skip that part please? I'm not in a hurry though in
fact the opposite is true. I prefer being alone to being with
someone who isn't right for me or I for her, I am in this, very
I'm GGG (aka Dan Savage) and would love to find the same in my
partner. I need someone who's ready for the real thing and who's
willing to be patient, work things out, look out for one another,
the works! I'd be very happy to never have another break up, that
is my private secret fantasy. Wait, is it no longer a secret?
