Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born and raised in a small town in western Pennsylvania. I
spent most of 7 years in Indiana. Then I spent 28 long years in
Florida, mostly in Orlando but I lived in several parts of the
state. Hated the weather and did not intend to stay that long. Most
recently I spent 3 1/2 years in Lake Wylie, SC near Charlotte. I
loved the Carolinas. So I am a little bit PA Dutch (I still say
"red up the room".), a little bit mid-western, and a little bit
southern, ya'll. But while all of these regions are a part of me
none of them define me. I am eclectic and now am becoming a little
bit Maryland. I am a closet romantic. While I can be very romantic
I tend to be much more of a pragmatic realist. I am rather
intelligent but have very little common sense. I am often funny,
witty, and sarcastic. References available upon request. I used to
be crazy. It never got weird enough for me. Actually that is still
true. But I am not as up for trying anything twice as I once was.
These days I enjoy stability and routine more. I'm really just a
big "Pooh Bear" and a homebody at heart. I am very much a shorts
and t-shirt kind of guy. Informal, casual, laid back and easy
going. I hate to wear belts but I can clean up pretty well when I
choose. I talk to myself a lot which gets some weird reactions in
public. I am a good listener, and enjoy good conversation. I am a
baby boomer and proud of that fact. I actually tend to be very
quiet and shy around people that are new to me. I am somewhat
uncomfortable with the traditional concept of "dating". It is so
"1950's". I am a hockey fanatic (Go Hershey Bears and Boston
Bruins) and played when I was younger. I am a fan of Springsteen,
Billy Joel and Cheap Trick and saw them all in tiny little venues
that weren't even full before they were superstars. These days I
listen almost exclusively to modern country. I like to write but
don't do it as much as I used to. Poetry, short stories, music
lyrics, and I have started several books that I still hope to
finish one day. I would love to share my writing with you.
A few thoughts that help define who I am. I am trying to live my
life. A task so difficult it has never been attempted before.
Incredible as it seems, my life is based on a true story. I don't
guarantee anything. Which is lucky for you, since my guarantees are
usually worthless. I ONLY COME DOWN SO THAT I CAN GO UP
Who am I looking for? I am looking for the same things most on
Match are looking for. A friend, companion, and lover. Someone that
I can share my life with. Someone who has my back and knows I have
theirs. Someone I can treat special because they are and surprise
and delight daily. I have a weakness for short women and for long
dark hair, but neither is a prerequisite. Honesty and trust are
very important in life and especially in an intimate relationship.
I have a philosophy for making a relationship work. We do one thing
for you, that you want to do. Then we do one thing for me, that I
want to do. Then we do one thing that we both want to do. And the
rule is that we never repeat the same one twice until we completed
all three. I find it odd that many women here need to state things
like "no game playing". I think that is a given. I am honest, real,
and sometimes raw. So cliche, but life is too short and getting
shorter. I don't want to spend a lot of time trading emails or
talking on the phone. If you have read this far and have an
interest let me know and let's get together and see if we click. If
not, fine. Nothing ventured nothing gained.
We all say it in different ways but we all say we want the same
thing. Yet most of us are afraid to reach out and grab the
proverbial brass ring. We have different rationals for it but it
comes down to fear. Fear of being hurt. Real or imagined. And much
of it is imagined. Hell, I don't just want the brass ring. I want
the whole damn merry-go round. If you get the chance to sit it out
or dance, I hope you dance
