Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Romantic, aquarian-age thinker with a classy bent. Nothing is
better than frequently seeing a small group of friends for
cocktails and talk - no holds barred, for good laughs!
Friends say about me: intelligent, and a gentleman, but I still do
things like surprise them with a moon at the pool party! I have a
sense of romance and adventure - have crossed the Atlantic on the
Queen Elizabeth II and enjoyed Cunard's superb service and gazing
at the ocean for hours, reading in a deck chair. Nights, dressed up
with my woman friend and danced the night away.
Things I've done or still do: organist, kayaking, gardening,
cooking, yoga. Music likes: Techno, pop, jazz, 40's, baroque and
renaissance. Strange combination of silliness and seriousness, as
appropriate. Dry sense of humor. I have even recently been called
exotic(!). Confidant of several. And, very professional and
respected in my career.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working too hard (but not excessive hours) - want to change that!
enjoying the company of friends. Once I have more time I'm going to
get back into renaissance organ music and writing the book I've
been working on. Wave-running on Tampa Bay or at Anna Maria.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people feel comfortable, diplomacy and conflict resolution
(my profession). Having fun!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Friendly and outgoing, my height -6'5".
(I had to ask a friend this question!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books and movies about interesting and adventurous, uninhibited
people. (i.e. Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky).
Classic movies (Turner Classic) and tv shows. My favorite author is
Christopher Isherwood (he wrote the book on which the movie Cabaret
Music - I switch between pop & techno and classical.
Very light eater - sushi, salads, shrimp scampi...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Enough money to live ok.
(the rest I COULD do without if necessary):
strawberries with breakfast, an urban living environment,
preferably in a historic district), educated, fun, and open-minded
friends, the morning paper (a good one), and that 's about it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how nice it would be to have a regular someone to go out with
Friday & Saturday nights.....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends for dinner - usually sushi. Sometimes I hang out
at a dance club in Ybor, or maybe at the Waterside Marriott, or
downtown St. Pete.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I admit it it's not private anymore! -:)...

Also - I still get hard as steel -:)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If your mind is ageless, open, and adventuresome; if you can
understand that most of my friends are in their 20's and 30's and
that I intend to stay professionally active until I'm 70 and maybe
beyond (kinda rules out endless travelling, cruises, and playing
golf - I don't have time for that, except occasionally golf and an
annual 2-3 week vacation); if you have some sparkle, spice, and
naughtiness -:). (Think of the actor David Niven).
If you can understand that I thrive on privacy and don't tolerate
fools (especially somebody's tiresome, drama-making, or needy
friends or relatives), yet occasionally enjoy a classy fun evening
out with good friends. I HATE driving; therefore my desire to live
and work and spend most of my time interesting places like Ybor,
downtown St. Pete, The French Quarter (I lived there for 9 years),
and San Francisco (22 years).
