I have a strong sense of doing what is right. I do not ask anything of anyone I would not ask of myself.
I have been told by women that I am witty and have a big heart. I am thoughtful and caring. I will make sure that things are taken care of, from surprising you with your favorite things to doing / fixing things around the house to make your life easier.
My words are sincere, I do not say things and hope you never take me up on it.
I am dependable, I am there when you need me.
I worked in information technology as a systems programmer analyst for over 27 years. The last IT job was at a NY bank for over 21 years. Going full tilt with the career and then losing my job to India showed me I should of made more of an effort at a better balance in life (not going to make that mistake again).
I am looking for someone who appreciates receiving acts of caring, kindness and respect. Someone that we can occasionally fall asleep on each other because we are very content with being together (who doesn't like a nice nap now and then). Spending time with each other for laughs and alone time is a plus. Time out in public is good also, if I have nothing going on, I'll even go on shopping trips with you and hold your hand bag while you are in the fitting room. The last item will cost you! When you are finished, I expect a kiss.
If you are only looking for a new friend, I am good with that.
Taking things apart and putting them back together. Sometimes I will have extra parts - uh oh!
Teaching others how to fix things
Remembering dates - birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
Teaching someone how to drive a manual transmission (a.k.a. stick)
Being a safety net for my friends
Remembering to put the toilet seat down when I am done (so how am I looking now?)

- Why are telephone poles not straight?
- Why people who drive to the gym for exercise insist on waiting for a parking space next to the door?
- Are Red Bull and Monster drinks the equivalent of Geritol for the young?
- Has the person with that tattoo of an Asian character verified it is the meaning they wanted and not "stupid jackass"?
- Why I Can't get a clear signal on my expensive smart phone with today's technology but yet that cheap radio on Gilligan's Island made back in the sixties can pull in stations on a deserted island
If you are not sure. Go ahead, I don't bite, I only nibble around the edges. ;-)
If you are tired of the shenanigans of the tall, dark, and handsome. Try something different: short, bright, and well, you decide. I have been told I look better than my pictures.
If I am not what you are looking for.
Sometimes I make a different impression in person. What impression? You decide. You never know. Sometimes I am like Hellmann's, I bring out the best (in others).
If you want someone to hang out or do things with.
