Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would describe myself as intelligent, hard working, dependable,
patient, and having a good sense of humor. I have an artistic side
that has been expressed in oil paintings and bronze
I'm taking good care of my body and exercise regularly. For
relaxation I like to read mysteries, science and technology, and
assorted current books.
My perfect first date is sharing a good meal and a very long
conversation together. My ideal match is an intelligent, well
educated woman with a good sense of humor. She works in some
professional capacity and enjoys her chosen profession. She works
hard but also likes to play hard - or relax with a good book, soft
music, a crackling fire, and a glass of wine. She is trim and fit
and exercises regularly and possesses a sensual nature. She can
thoroughly enjoy a soak in a hot tub, a massage, or just lounging
around and watching a movie or listening to music. She enjoys good
food and likes to cook for herself or with her friends. She may be
more of a homebody, preferring cocooning to sailing the seven seas
(unless it's on a cruise ship!). If she has children they are not
living with her, thereby giving her the time and freedom to explore
whatever paths her life now takes. She is a spiritual, but not
religious person; she isn't bound to any arbitrary sectarian dogma
but instead chooses to think for herself. She is a warm, kind, and
generous person with a caring attitude and enthusiastic
I am divorced and have two children. My married daughter (age 30)

I'm originally from Montreal, having arrived in San Francisco when
I was five. I still speak reasonable French but I need
Finally, I retired from the computer industry, after spending over
25 years in various engineering and management positions. I'm now
doing computer system design in aerospace and I love it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am in a stable point in my life. My 24+ year marriage ended over
10 years ago, I'm in a new career, my children are young adults and
pretty well launched, and I'm optimistically looking forward to the
next phase of my life.
I'm looking for that next relationship that will continue through
retirement in a bunch of years and onward...
To that end I'm forming new friendships, exploring new interests,
and trying to meet any number of compatible women.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My life has been steeped in science and technology so I tend to be
good with computers and mechanisms of most types. I have designed
and built two custom houses (with help) and can fix pretty much
anything or can determine whether or not to get outside help.
I have an artistic side that has been expressed in oil painting,
bronze sculpture (using the lost wax process), and metal and wood
I can also cook fairly well and give good massages.
The first things people usually notice about me

People will initially notice that I'm generally reasonably well
dressed, patient, and that I tend to listen. After a while they
will probably get the impression that I think before I speak and
that I'm fairly well educated and intelligent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Regarding food, I will eat just about anything. I'm not fond
of "fishy" fish but will eat shellfish such as lobster, crab,
scallops, or shrimp. I will also eat most "ethnic" food such as
Chinese, Japanese, Italian, French, etc.... with the exception of
Middle Eastern or Greek.
Some favorite movies that come to mind are: Jurassic Park, Mama
Mia!, It's Complicated, most anything by Mel Brooks, the Inspector
Clouseau series, and many of the old Bond movies.
I also really enjoyed The King's Speech, The Artist, and
Midnight in Paris. I'm looking forward to the release of MIB
My tastes in music are classical, light jazz, and easy
I read a lot of mysteries, popularized science, and general
interest books. My favorite authors are John Sandford, Sue Grafton,
Michael Crichton, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam
