My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I no longer think it's so important to share a lot of interests, hobbies, whatever. If two people like each other enough, then that's plenty in common right there. If you can make me laugh, we'll probably get along great. My experience has been that when our brains fit well together the other parts do too.

I'm hoping for a long-term thing (not marriage), but will be happy with someone I share a chemistry with, even if it turns out to be short term, though it would be great if it turned into "the real thing." I'd like to be with someone who is my intellectual equal or better.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm retired, so all my time is free time. I used to do a fair amount of
volunteer work but now I mostly just hang out and enjoy myself. I like to travel, walk, hike, bike, be on, in or around water, snowshoe, camp but also happy to sit around and have stimulating conversation or read or watch a movie or learn something . I guess I don't think in terms of what I'm doing with my life, more like what I'm doing now, tomorrow, next week.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making people laugh, helping people, figuring things out, fixing things, singing in the shower...
I have this apparently uncommon knack for looking at a problem and coming up with one or more workable solutions on the spot. I get a kick out of helping people see a thing in a new way.

I don't know - how is it possible to know what someone else has noticed?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Don't really have favorites - I like movies that make me laugh or think or are simply so well made (or so bizarre) that they take my breath away. Down By Law, My Cousin Vinnie and Winter's Bone are great movies. For books, I mostly read fiction but I'll read anything anyone recommends or that I just happen upon. I find the mind fascinating and I like to read folks like Oliver Sacks and magazines like Scientific American Mind. For music - I like the 40's to the 60's, some jazz, blues, rock'n'roll. Food - I love to eat and like almost everything. Hamburgers and chocolate chip cookies (though not at the same time).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Let's see -- how about laughter, friendship, stimulating conversation, tasty food, a decent bicycle, and sex. Although when you get right down to it, the only things you could "never" do without are food, clothing and shelter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, how things work, the mind and how it works, the future, and all those things I said I could never do without.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
reading, watching a movie, listening to live music, attending a "meetup" group or some other event, hanging out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
sorry - there isn't one.
