Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm American who usually lives and works overseas. I was teaching
various business courses at a university in China in a city near
Shanghai, but am back in Columbus indefinitely to explore my muse.
I've spent 13 years of my life living outside the U.S., having
worked in 8 countries and visited 13 more. I would like to meet and
enjoy the company of a woman with a passion for life and the energy
to make it happen.
I'm quite the nomad so I can't offer you the traditional forms of
stability or security - but if you would like to meet and have fun
(NOT a euphemism for sex), that would be quite welcome. I can offer
you polite company, intelligent conversation, and a desire to get
out and enjoy various cultural events.
One of my favorite indulgences is going dancing. Yes, at 53 I still
love to go clubbing and shake my booty. So I stay in pretty good
I like indoor fun as well as outdoor fun - who doesn't like beaches
and mountains? I enjoy all the simple things and some of the
expensive things in life. However, when it comes to owning stuff,
I'm the ultra-minimalist. I adore art museums, theater, and dance.
I love the ballet.
I'm not much for live music but I'm sure I would be more tolerable
with the right person - especially if I can dance.
I spend alot of my life trying to better understand the big wide
world and what makes it go, taking information from many sources to
create a wholistic picture. Curiosity is one of my major motivating
factors since you learn new things about the world as well as new
things about yourself. Its one of the big reasons I started working
in other countries.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to be the best me I can be. For me, being normal is a
failure of potential, one should at least try to have an
As with everyone, I'm working and living somewhere on planet Earth
- right now however taking some time off to write.
Of course, always seeking Truth and Enlightenment. On a more
mundane level, exercising frequently (big fan of Antrim Park) and
trying to be creative.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at looking at complex and abstract phenomena and
recognizing patterns. I learn things very quickly.
I've been told I'm a fairly good dancer, lots of practice.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Perhaps my energy and my personality. If you saw me on the dance
floor, you would never guess my age.
Those are recent pictures of me. I am 53 but I have most of my hair
and it is not gray (I do not color it). No one guesses I'm over 50
(at least that's what they tell me).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read mags like The Economist and Scientific American, some books
on philosophy, science, politics, law for fun maybe a Sci-fi novel.
Sci-fi films and TV mostly since they sometimes stretch your
I like to stay current with what music I listen to, almost all the
songs currently in my playlist are from the past year. I gravitate
towards music you can dance to though.
I eat a wide variety of foods and am not a fan of strict dietary
limits such as a vegetarian. We humans are omnivores after all.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Computer, Broadband, Hot showers, Meat, Dancing, New experiences -
not in any particular order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The complexities of basic human interaction, the true nature of
existence and the future.
How to reveal my characters through dialogue and not have it seem
When I will again be lucky enough to squeeze a woman's hand and
have her squeeze back and to look into a woman's eyes and know she
wants a kiss.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I try to hang around people my own age but this age group likes to
sit, drink, and (at best) talk in a bar/pub - they are not very
active once the sun sets and are never up past midnight. Plus most
guys are not culturally inclined so I have little company for
galleries or performances. When clubbing, I usually go out by
myself. How many people in their 50s do you know that stay up
drinking and dancing?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I still love to dance ballet when no one can see me.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to go to a play, a symphony, an art exhibit, and
especially if you love to go dancing after!
