Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Mystery solved as to why I am single on 2-27-15. I was simply the
wrong color dress! Should have been black blue, white gold or
whatever color you see.
This is what I wrote earlier:
Ok, not such great feedback on the red velvet dress analogy. I I
I'm not at all the woe-is-me kind. But damn, ladies I wrote it for
you to ponder where dresses actually go that never ever sell. And,
it a twisted sense of humor way, it explains a bit of how I
I am a red velvet dress.
Once upon a time, I was a designer's dream. She made me beautifully
from excellent fabric and nicely built to someday hug a lovely
I remember being featured in the store front display. Beautiful
women walked by and some tried me on, liked how I looked, but said
they would come back tomorrow. But, none of them ever did.
Eventually I was moved to the clearance rack and after 38 years, a
woman finally purchased me for a cocktail party she wanted to
throw. I wondered why she kept the tags on and receipt handy but
quickly learned why when she returned me shortly after the
I was a little dirtier for the wear, but still shapely enough to be
returned to the final clearance rack and once again placed for sale
where I have remained for the last 9 years.
A few bargain shoppers do try me on once in a while and I don't
mind even if it is for vintage giggles.
Still, here I hang yet hoping to be part of a beautiful woman's
ensemble. I try my best to show well but secretly am facing every
clearance dress's worst fear......being removed from the rack and
cut up into rags for someone who will never know what a beautiful
dress I was.
Won't you please come try me on while I'm still for sale?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm playful, goofy and pretty good at analogies. I think
intelligence is the most important attribute in a relationship
followed shortly by laughter. I have an endless desire for fun
enveloped in a responsible package.
Most of my more successful relationships have been based on common
activities like golf, curling, scrabble, home renovation, biking,
as well as country music and too many other interests to
I believe you have to dream and seek in order to find and have. I
don't want to grow old wondering about what opportunity I may have
It would be wonderful share that joy of companionship with someone.
Nothing better than having someone you trust with your heart.
Right now I'm knee deep in the renovation of a couple of house
flips....Definitely trying to balance work/social.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Strategic things. I'm really good at thinking outside the box
although you'd never know that unless you asked. I'm pretty sure I
should have been a business innovation specialist instead of a math
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The strength to do what's right. I think its called inner
conviction. Politically I'm in the middle. Definitely a social
liberal but more likely a fiscal conservative.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Tend to love the romantic comedies! I'll listen to pretty much
anything except metal and rap. Love the stories that music
tells...Hate the glorification of gangsta culture.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My 3 kids. They are great kids and I am an amazing dad. Actually
they aren't real kids... no real kids for me.. but as far as make
believe kids go, they are pretty funny.
While some of what happens to us is accidental, a lot of who and
what we are is because of vision and planning. Will retirement just
come or will I be ready? Will I date anyone or do everything I can
to find the right one?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably thinking how nice it would be to have a great girlfriend
for dinner, golf, curling, and who knows what else.
I also like to think about how to communicate more better.
Take the above paragraph for example. I actually did not mean
having a girlfriend FOR dinner. I actually meant having a
girlfriend WITH dinner. But, that sounds awful as well. Throw me a
bone on how to say that???
Oh well....Pointing and grunts never go out of style for men. I'm
sticking with that. Can't get that wrong! And, I do (mostly)
understand English grammatical structure.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have an interest in the amazing differences between men and
women. It makes for some really interesting conversations.
I am also partial to women who are sexually open minded.
