Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
1 - Writing about myself is not one of my favorite
2 - I joke around (a lot), so it is hard for me to write anything
without trying to work humor into it (you may now consider yourself
to have been warned).
3 - I don't know, maybe I'll come up with something to write
OH, OH, I thought of something. I am a bit of a smart-ass. Maybe
that is included in #2, I don't know.
4 - I like to exercise and for the last 3 years that has taken the
form of a lot of full-court basketball. It does come at a certain
price. I had injuries to both legs starting in september and endind
(hopefully) in June. Unfortunately I continued to play in pain,
which was probably not the wisest actions of my life.
(I have a high tolerance for pain. Further evidence of this is that
I was married for 20 years). I play basketball with men of
different age groups. This includes college age men during the
summer. It has really helped with my conditioning and other health
related things. (Choletseral, blood pressure, heart rate, etc.) I
also work out on the road with P90X. I also play in a softball
league during the summers. Injury update - ankle is healed
(re-injured in June, but healing quickly), right leg healed, left
leg almost 100%. Alles gut
5 - I love being outdoors. I own a convertible and a motorcycle.
Lately, I have been exploring the new city parks with Apollo the
6 - I have played several musical instruments, but don't really
play them often now.
I have 3 daughters and love them very much. The youngest just
turned 15 this month.
I have a wonderful 3 year old beagle and 16 year old cat. Both are
very affectionate except the cat doesn't really care for the dog.
Unfortunately, the 17 year old's cat went into severe decline and
we had to euthanize her a couple of weeks ago.
I have a great deal of "formal education" and also, a great deal of
airline training. I split my undergrad between a small baptist
university out of state and "THE" Ohio State University. (It didn't
have the "THE" when I started -- actually, I guess it did. It just
wasn't stressed until Jennings was President.) I did all of my grad
school at TOSU. I also taught Math, Marketing, and Flying
I have worked in several career fields, but settled into being an
airline pilot. I work for an airline located outside of the US and
I fly all over the world. I have been exposed to several languages
and they all float around in my head like the flakes in a snow
OK, none of that was funny. I will try to do better. I'm tired and
am also not really a fan of filling out stuff like this.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Filling in this thing. Drinking coffee. Trying to decide whether to
keep cleaning out and organizing the house and garage or to take
the dog to the parts of Darby Park that we haven't seen yet.
UPDATE: OUT OF COFFEE!!!! off to big bird to get some more!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Actually, many things but I don't feel like writing about them
right now. Maybe later.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea. I am taller than average. Maybe its my third nipple
that is located on my forehead. (Yes Virgina, men have nipples,
too. Why, I haven't a clue). Okay, I don't really have a third
nipple on my forehead. Its somewhere else. You'll have to find it
on your own.
I smile a lot. Maybe that is it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I was a voracious reader as a child. Unfortunately, all of the
reading that I did in college / grad school kind of burnt me out on
reading for fun for a while. I read a lot of other things. Back
then I had lots of subscriptions to lots of different magazines.
Now I do a lot of reading on the internet.
I love music and have a lot of it on my computer. I like all
different kinds of music, but the majority of what I have is more
pop rock (silly little love songs as Paul McCartney would
I own a lot of DVD's. I watch a lot of movies.
Naming favorites is tough and also can lead people to jump to
conclusions which may not be accurate.
Favorite musical group of all time for me - probably the
Movies - different ones for different Genres:
Lawrence of Arabia
Gone With The Wind
Raiders of the Lost Ark
The Sound of Music
The Princess Bride
etc., etc., etc -- which is from The King and I.
TV Shows -
The Daily Report
The Colbert Report
Air Disasters - (The Smithsonian Channel)
Food - I love Italian cuisine.
I am a meat and potatoes kind of guy.
I like the caveman diet, but am having trouble finding enough cave
women to eat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Giving oral sex. OK - Michael Douglas says that he got throat
cancer from giving oral sex to women - (you know the word). Well
that kind of puts a damper on things. However, he says that
continuing to "perform" it works to keep it from reoccurring. Now I
am totally confused. Well if I have a choice of how I am going to
get cancer, this certainly beats smoking!
(That was 7. Is anybody policing this? Maybe I could list 100
I guess I should define a couple of terms:
Oral Sex - for my ex-wife and me this consisted of standing in a
hall and shouting "F-You" at each other. (not really).
Foreplay - for me, it consisted of 4 hours of begging.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what to write here. Actually, I have put almost no thought into
Also, I just added some photos and they said no nudity, but they
have questions on here about how often people masturbate. Very
curious. I actually find the question and answers to be quite
interesting. Its amazing to see the differences in attitudes and
experiences among so many different women. Also, I would have never
asked most of these questions to anyone, so the answers are
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends. I might be anywhere in the world on a Friday night. At
midnight (local time) on Dec 31, 2011, I was in Dakar. No, really I
was. I have pictures and everything. At midnight in Ohio, I was
somewhere over the South Atlantic on my way to Argentina. So,
Friday nights when I am in Ohio, probably at home with my youngest

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that Soylent Green is people and that I'm Sparticus. Please
don't tell this to anybody. Its a secret!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Guess you could add formal sex to the above - as in dressed in Prom
outfits. My senior prom night was a disaster. I wrote a paper about
it in college and the teacher found it to be hysterical.
Unfortunately, living it wasn't all that funny.
you like to have fun.
Oh, I'm also well endowed and great in bed, but that probably
doesn't interest most of you. Some of you are looking for
sole-mates (I don't know what that is - people who like the same
kind of shoes perhaps? Yes, I have actually seen women write
OK, just kidding about the endowed/great in bed comment (actually,
I wasn't), but being serious for a few seconds:
I'm laid back.
I look for the good in people.
Women have always seemed to like me, so there must be some
redeeming qualities in my character.
I have a lot of varied interests and that makes answering a lot of
questions in that question bank hard because they give a lot of
As ABBA sang: Take a chance on me. i don't bite -- hard, but I do
lick -- a lot.
