Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a decent, handsome, employed, educated, open minded, witty,
fun, interesting, well travelled fellow who would like to meet a
local person to have an occasional fun evening when I don't have my
kids. I am subversive but not cynical, liberal and open minded,
independent but empathetic, and I tend to get along better with
people who question authority.
I still watch Netflix but I gave up on regular TV. The remote was
too complicated and the things about which I was supposed to care
(sports! awards shows!!) became meaningless. Tuning out life's
noise is not necessary, but I think I need someone who can
recognize absurdity and laugh with me.
I am very, VERY excited for this phase in my life!! Really.
(Side note: Have you seen the elderly bickering couple at the
grocery store? He's reading the ingredients loudly while she is
pushing away the shopping cart with focus and purpose. Good lord!
You know they have well rehearsed smiles and Thank Yous for the
cashier... I'm thinking: Let's not become them.)
Back to me:
I used to be 100% Gallant, but I have learned to cherish my inner
I am both City Mouse and Country Mouse, but I'm not so happy about
suburbia, which is where I am. :-/
I am divorced, and right now being married is too fresh in my mind
to venture down that path or anything like it.
So, I don't want to fix anyone or be fixed, and I don't want my
next first kiss to be my last.
Complement me but please don't try to complete me. Being your soul
mate, or even your sole mate, is completely unnecessary.
Does this sound like something you can deal with?
Then send me a message!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hmmm. That's a tough question!
Instead I'll give you six things I COULD live without:
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
... my 1980s-era Jean Claude Van Damme perfect abs while I am
flexing in the mirror.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
... making you dinner, serenading you while giving you a neck rub,
painting your portrait, fixing your transmission, engaging in epic
battles with super villains, then flying home to watch the perfect
chick flick under a shared blanket.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I better keep this simple, so I don't irritate any accomplice
involved in embarrassing antics.
When I was ten years old I ate a whole tube of Pringles and then
vomited. Even today, the smell of Pringles makes me nauseous.
Some years later, a similar thing happened to me with bourbon.

My dog has wrinkly skin. He's territorial and he's been neutered.
He snorts when he chews and his breath is horrible. When he sleeps,
he flops on me and then pushes me to the edge of the bed.
You're not like that.
