Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
August 2015 Update:
Feel free to contact me if you wish to meet someone else who is
also looking for a wonderful partnership.
I have come to the conclusion that seeking perfection, in myself or
others, is not only a thankless task but it is a waste of energy.
So, from today on, I am determined to appreciate the incremental
joys and observe as much as possible, what works and what
I am kind, compassionate, and honest and that pretty much
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently working full time as an accountant which has been my
career for 30 years. Taking the time to seriously assess where I am
and where I would like to go from here, who I am and who I would
like to be going forward.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Appreciation. I appreciate people for who they are as a whole. I
understand, actually KNOW that many of the very qualities that one
admires in an individual are often the very qualities that in
different circumstances are guaranteed to make you cringe. Those
aspects are part and parcel of who that person is and
cherry-picking the things you like about someone and attempting to
discard the things you dislike is not only not possible, but it is
destructive. If you truly like someone, they come as a bundled
package and substitutions are not available. That's what I believe,
in any case.
Enjoying creativity. I love art, colors, textures. Music: classical
guitar, classical period. Rock n' roll - Beatles, Paul McCartney,
Sting, Los Lonely Boys, Rolling Stones. Motown in all its glory,
Jazz - Dave Brubeck. Swing - Frank Sinatra and currently Michael
Buble but open to listening to new sounds, as long as they are
created by people as opposed to machines.
Listening and talking in equal measure - in other words, sharing a
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I couldn't tell you, because I have never asked.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Source - James Michener; The Power of One - Bryce
Courtney; Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore - Robin Sloan (That's
just a sample, because I love, love, love to read and I really
don't have "favorites")
Movies: They Way We Were, Defiance, A Hard Day's Night, Out of
Africa, Cool Hand Luke, Robin and Marian, Citizen 4 (again same as
above on the favorites thing)
See above in "I am really good at"
Food: As a vegetarian, I enjoy just about any vegetable, fruit or
whole grain prepared with a light hand in seasoning and less rather
than more cooking.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My children, my animals, music, books, art and my heart.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I have learned in the past to improve on my future. What I am
trying to do is live right now fully, utilising what I have learned
so far. How can I contribute so that, at the end of the day, I have
given more than I have used up...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home reading, watching a movie on pay per view or taking in some
live, local music with friends.

You feel like it. I am interested in what people have to say, good,
not so good or whatever. Just no indifference. Indifference is
