Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have just joined OK Cupid after being out of the dating scene for
over 4 years. The 3 pictures without the mustache were taken in
April, 2010. My friends say I have a generous heart, a kind soul,
and that I am honest, loyal, and supportive. They also say I am an
optimist after entering the George Clooney lookalike contest! Just
kidding. I am also very organized, punctual, and like to keep my
house and yard clean. I can be kind of laid-back and quiet at
times, but with the right person, I am open and talkative. I truly
believe that in order to get know someone, you cannot do it by
reading a profile or exchanging an email - you have to spend time
with that person. I believe in the golden rule, and try and treat
others the way I would expect to be treated. I have been divorced
since 2003 and have no children. I am a (rock and roll and local)
music and film lover, but I am always hoping to learn new things
(you are never too old). I am a big animal lover, and over the
years I've had a dog and 5 cats. I love to hang out with my friends
and love interaction with others. Walking is my preferred exercise
because of past hip problems. I would consider myself an expert in
two subjects: the Beatles, and Alfred Hitchcock films. A true
baby-boomer! If you like John Waters films and the local DC music
scene, PLEASE contact me as we would be a very good match. If you
want to understand me, listen to the very last sentence in the Nat
King Cole song "Nature Boy".
I work for the federal government in DC, but I do not live to work;
I work to live. I truly enjoy my time off from work.
My ideal match will be honest, caring, friendly, communicative,
smart, and like animals. No smokers please. I don't drink, but I
don't mind if you do (most of my friends drink). If you are a music
lover, that is a big plus. I am really looking to meet that special
woman to spend quality time with and hopefully forge a loving and
lasting relationship. I am looking for a best friend, lover and
soulmate. To me the best part of a relationship is being able to
share the events of your day with each other, then spend a lovely
evening together knowing that you are with someone who cares about
Thank you for taking the time to read all this, and to quote the
Beatles "The love you take is equal to the love you make."
