Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am definitely different, much to my contentment, Contentment is a
powerful word, highly under rated. I am active mentally and
physically, love to do damn near anything. got brains when they are
needed, and they can sit in closet when not needed. Love food and
wine, reading, building great old buildings, designing anything
architectural, growing things, road trips, danish modern anything,
yeah...cars, mostly old ones. Been self employed all my life, but
maybe i should hit up Home Depot for a job standing around with a
phone... Looking for a long term relationship, one on one, which
means you actually have to spend time together, not just texting
and emailing. All these questions are dumb, and its tough to keep
writing....i feel like the guy in Sams Club trying to sell you
another cell phone.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
right now i am restoring an 1880's stone farm house i have up in
Athens, NY. ....Then the barn caught my eye, and I decided to
restore that for a living space.....i am getting carried away, or
as Realtors say "over improving". This takes a great deal of my
time, but it is a catharsis for me. Anyone here good at
1/22/2014: i recently discovered a show and it was not on the
discovery channel. actually its on the animal planet channel. its
all about treehouse building. I have read all I can find on the
Tree houses have come a long way and I will be building one as soon
as this weather breaks, and it will include an elevator:)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
well....you will not believe this, but i am good at almost
anything. I almost feel guilty saying it....well, i do feel guilty
saying it, but things do come very natural. I think about it in my
head, and do it. Might not be perfect the first time....but, i get
the hang of most things:) I guess it is because i am best at
reading. Remember the movie 3 days of the condor???
when they ask Redford what he does...he answers "I read" Read
what?? he says "everything". i can relate:)
The best way to put it is, i am very visual. If i can see it in my
head, i can make it happen....most of the time:)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't fit any molds, and it doesn't look like things will be
changing anytime soon:)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am an avid reader, lately i have been reading about this
countries first tycoons. Cornelius Vanderblt, Jay Gould ,
Rockfeller, Astor...I read one and read another, there seems to an
incredible parallel between their time and manner of consumption
and present day. Past reading passions were wine, and i use to
teach it. Music...stuck in a time warp, 60's, 70's, and 80's..I
think music stopped on December 30, 1989...just joking.
Food...anything, just no chain food restaurants. Love Thai, French,
Japanese, Southern American, Cajun, and something coined many years
ago by the New York Times..kennebunkport cuisine.
Also love anything Raw. Movies...yeah..i am a guy, the usual:)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
hmmm, water, reading glass's, light bulb, food, wine,
companionship, intimacy,sunlight, humor, google,and sex.
obviously i have problems counting....
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
7/28/2013 I keep reading women saying "contact me if your not
married" . if a guy is going to cheat on his wife, why would you
think he would tell you the truth about being married....go
I get notices that woman give me 4-5 stars...but then they do not
send a message. its 2013 , but they can't send an email first...go
1/22/2014: ever notice that if a person posts 4 different pictures,
many times it almost looks like four different people.......kinda
scary when one goes heavily on pictures.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
there is no typical friday night, or any other night. Things change
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
there is no point in scaring you away this early in the roadtrip.
all the fun is in getting there:)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are young at heart, a little different...maybe a lot
Open minded and willing to deviate from the path most
Not materialistic to the point of being shallow. Unconventional to
a comfortable point. living a healthy lifestyle. off the wall sense
of humor. Vulnerable in a good way.
ADDENDUM: just read something on yahoo....so it HAS to be
A study of divorced people showed what men felt was lacking in the
marriage was touching and affection from the wife , a surprise to
most....cause guys are tough...
Actually i had noticed the same thing over the years, woman just
don't touch like they use to... i just don't have a big enough ego
to rely on my own demographics. soooo, the moral is, please be the
type that is affectionate and touchy, as now that i have company in
this dilemma i have no problems asking:)
