Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have been on many online dates, and many of them were so much
fun. Many never worked out. All in all it was all good. I had a
great relationship once with a speech pathologist whom I met on
Yahoo in 2001, a year after I was divorced. We had fun times until
I pushed too hard for love because I was still on the rebound from
my divorce in 2000. Lesson learned.
I have been on other dates since that time of course, and even fell
in love again a few years later. But online dating will remain a
throw of the dice. So I don't expect anything to come of this, but
I post again on POF although I am full of imperfections and at 56,
I am still uncertain about what many people take for granted. That
there is life beyond death, things will be all right because there
is someone or something out in our universe who looks over us. I
wonder about this at my older age now, and my skepticism, that I'm
not happy about, can give me hopelessness. But I refuse to give in
I believe that the life I have now is a precious thing. So this man
whose profile you may or may not be reading refuses to be
artificial and talk about boring things like "wine over
conversation" or "I can wear jeans or dress up." All normal things,
but it sure does not tell alot about me or anyone else.
I am simply a man on a journey, and I hope to travel light and be
happy along life's way as I can whether that be fishing in the
Gulf, carrying on and laughing with friends, traveling somewhere
I've never been before. At 56, I am trying to let my spool of
thread come off instead of reeling it in like a ball of yarn. I
want to be played out whenever I do approach my last days. My plan:
No less than 20 years from now, I hope to be alive and kicking,
writing poetry, watching the stars, a bonfire and a bag of oysters
to shuck. I refuse to go quietly in the night.
I would like to be contacted by those who are not put off by these
eccentricities, but, in fact, identifies with them. Thank you to
anyone who finished this small attempt to describe myself to women,
who confuse me more the older I get, but whom I find to be the most
fascinating company a man can have.
And by the way, I am a romantic dreamer, and I no longer apologize
for that. I believe in romantic love, loyal friendships, and
happiness along the way. I will have it no other way.

At home watching the news or the movies and having a few Coors. Now
if invited I will go out for drinks and conversation and a little
