Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to fancy myself a modern-day Ernest
Hemingway...Multi-layered/faceted, complex...a brash, brooding,
feisty, fit, hard drinkin'/hard hittin' clone...I just haven't
written any books or driven an ambulance in a civil war yet.,
Damn!..He liked to fish for sharks and I like to dive with them! I
ain't like 'The Old Man and the Sea', but I'm beginning to morph
into 'The Old Man IN the Sea'....NOT GOOD!...When I ponder 'For
Whom the Bell Tolls', it's because someone's buzzing my front door,
or my EZ Pass didn't take….
Yup, Ernest and I….Clones!!... just like Arnold and Danny in
And now You!!
Please be reasonably bright (I refuse to have 'a battle of wits'
with 'an unarmed' Lady!), fit and/or thin, with great legs (I'm a
True Leg Man at heart)…you must look good in a bikini!!…I am/I do,
'topless' (see attached photos!)….AND Look like your posted photos
today, not from 'yesteryear!'…be warm/affectionate and like to kiss
me and be kissed….I've been told I'm very good at it….wanna field
test?...It would be best that you have a car, so we could take
turns visiting each other?…I live on 'THE LAKE' in NJ…'The
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in medical device sales (been so my entire professional
career), an avid scuba diver (over 35 years!) and a published
underwater photographer. I've been all over the world, on every
continent except Antarctica, to experience and photograph the most
spectacular sites (and sights?) the undersea has to offer. I
especially enjoy shark encounters!...I can recall some of my
adventures if you're interested (or even if you're not), and almost
all of them are true! I'm originally from the South Bronx (The 'Ft.
Apache' section...don't have a 'Bronx' accent, but good at
parroting 'schoot dat peece of chit, ala Pachino!). I can speak
fluent Jive, and can even quote Shakespeare in it! For many years
I'm blessed to live on the shores of Sunny Lake Hopatcong, the
largest lake in NJ, and the best kept secret in the Greater NYC
Metro Area (Google it!...It's a 'Stone's Throw' from Midtown, if
you've got a good arm!) I enjoy boating and hanging out on
it…PanaSea, (my boat) is usually tied up on my dock out back, (now
in Winter storage), the hot tub's 'bubbling and beckoning' from my
deck!....Champagne M'Lady? I work out on a daily basis and have
embraced the concept of 'Strong Body-Strong Mind' since I was a boy
of 14. I'm determined to find the last love of my life!! If you try
to stop me, I'll shoot you with a Cupid's arrow and you'll see how
'pointless' your effort was! In 'counterpoint', I wanna take a
direct hit….right through the heart from you!!….whoever/wherever
you are…Ready, Aim, Fire!! Please hurry….I'm suffering….put me out
of my misery!! You won't regret it!!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My humor spans the intellectual to the inane. I specialize in puns.
I'm particularly skilled in gibberish and irrelevant
hogwash...expert in incoherent babble…fluent in double talk and
cerebral mumbo jumbo (Ozzie Osborne watch out!). I can wiggle my
ears and give myself goosebumps in tandem! (how's that for
'Hi-Brow' talents?)... If I can't impress you with my intellect,
I'll surely baffle you with BS! I enjoy and am accomplished skeet
shooter (the senseless slaughter of ceramics!).
I enjoy 'pushing the bubble' on curvy roads with Mitzy, my little
red sports car, and I think 'she' likes it! I enjoy a good martini
and prefer wines that are either 'flaccid but absurd', or 'bold but
not impertinent!' In this oftentimes insane world, I'd rather have
a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy!...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm never pegged for my true chronological age (in many respects
I'm more like a teenager at heart!)
I'm in good shape ( especially for a man of my age, by
cracky!)....6 foot tall, usually hovering around 200 pounds.. I've
been told I have 'Smiling Blue Eyes'. Please note: I wear
glasses... I don't have anything remotely resembling a 'Fabio
Mane'....I've got a healthy helopad evolving on the back of my
noggin' and my hairline is rising...It really sucks! Ever read the
book 'Into Thin Hair?'....A real 'Hair Raiser', right? On my end, I
seldom get into anyone's 'hair'.... I easily mix/mesh with all
types of people, regardless to gender, race, religion, economic or
educational status....I'm a people person!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I enjoy all forms of music except country and rap. In art, I'm
intrigued by Surrealism (the fact that I find myself posting on
this site is surreal!). I have a wide ranging, inquisitive palate
and I'm 'game' to try just about anything. I've sampled delicacies
such as fruit bat soup, kangaroo, yak, bear, muskrat, rattlesnake,
alligator, duck testicles, possum, raccoon, mountain chicken, jelly
fish and sea cucumber, to name a few...I drank Kava in Fiji (tastes
like dish water!, and no buzz!). I enjoy movies of all genres that
have a plot with some depth. I love the classic movies on the TCM
channel. Movies of love/romance and/or strong emotional connection
affect me (sorry Ernest...I know.....I'm a wuss!) Favorite movie?
Jaws! Surprised? I'm also particularly intrigued with movies about
time travel...Ever see 'The Final Countdown', 'The Time Machine'
(the 60's original with Rod Taylor), 'Timeline', 'Looper' or 'Time
after Time?' Very timely!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My sense of humor, my best friends, working out, to love and be
loved, (that's why I'm here!), scuba diving (of course!), good food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When you're dead, you don't know you're dead. It's just difficult
for the others….It's the same when you're stupid.
You can observe a lot just by watching.
Making predictions... it's very difficult.....especially about the
Trying not to make too many wrong mistakes….Have you ever made a
'right mistake?'……I have many times…..
That it ain't what you don't know that can hurt you....it's what
you know for sure that just ain't so.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Enjoying 'Miller Time' and screaming 'TGIF!'
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was REALLY brilliant 'Way back When"…..Then with all the sex,
drugs/rock 'n roll ('grew up' in the 60's/70's….booze too, of
course….goes without saying!?)….The remnants leave me just your
It was a toss-up between the old gray bearded guy and Moi for the
Dos Equis beer 'most fascinating Man' TV commercials….He won….I was
runner-up….:-( I drink Modelo Especial just to try to get
I once had to defibrillate a sea turtle….He remained shell-shocked
for the rest of his life….I hope he can come out of it….
Being alone...I hate it….me, myself and I are always getting into
arguments (but at least we have each other!)
PS....I didn't write this....Ernest did!!
