Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
PLEASE READ!…YOU CURIOUS CUPIDETTE!!…I am separated…It's drama free
(so far), and heading in only one finite direction. I own my
house….she needs my health insurance….I'm being a nice guy (do they
really finish last?) If this is a 'hurdle' you prefer not to
'leap', please move on and I fully understand.
I may be a conundrum, a dichotomy…maybe even a puzzling
contradiction….I wonder what you'll think of me?
I like to fancy myself a modern-day Ernest
Hemingway...Multi-layered/faceted, complex...a brash, brooding,
feisty, fit, hard drinkin'/hard hittin' clone of his....I just
haven't written any books or driven an ambulance in a civil war
yet...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 perceive
myself as '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....Exactly alike!... just like Arnold and Danny
in 'Twins'….One thing we do have in common….We are both on a Quest
to find ONE very Special Lady…
Please be bright (I refuse to have 'a battle of wits' with 'an
unarmed' Lady!), fit and look good in a bikini…I am/I do, topless,
I might add! ;~)…Please be warm/affectionate and like to kiss
me...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
Also, The Grateful Dead lyric seems to resonate:
'Sometimes the light is shining on me, other times I can barely
see....Lately it appears to me, what a long, strange trip it's
I mean, like, yeah….like really, wow….cool!….like…. far out!!!….
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, an avid scuba diver and 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'!). 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
tied up on my dock out back, 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!!
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 instead! I'm a pretty good 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 (and 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, 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
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! I just finished a book called 'Time and
Again', by Jack Finney, about a guy who travels back and forth
between NY in the 1970's and the 1880's.
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 friends and family, working out, to love and
be loved, (that's why I'm here!), scuba diving (of course!), good
food and drink.
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.
Sometimes you need to get lost to find yourself.
Making predictions... it's very difficult.....especially about the
Trying not to make too many wrong mistakes.
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 smart at one time…..then came all that sex, drugs and
rock 'n roll (booze too, of course….goes without saying?)….Now I'm
just your run-of-the-mill genius :-)
It was a toss-up between the bearded guy and I for the Dos Equis
beer TV commercials ;~)
I once had to defibrillate a sea turtle….He remained shell-shocked
for the rest of his life….
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!!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like what you see and read......If you don't write me, you may
regret it for the rest of your life, if you live that long!
So let it be written….so let it be dung! :-)
