My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You can depend on me. I promise to be a rock, and I am a rock. It works for Gibraltar. I am a great admirer of Gibraltar. Gibraltar is a huge rock that has withstood everything the oceans could throw at it and is still there.

I spend most of my time off on a dock in Golden Meadow, LA. I do a lot of fishing here. I have a boat here I take out on Bayou LaFourche. I also have a house in West Texas but I have only been there twice in the last year. It is way out in the Mesquite trees and prickly pear cactus. I do have a little space there, though, a workshop where I can turn things on the lathe and whatnot.

LIKES:

fishing , boats, hiking, backpacking, cats, conversation, fishing, working with tools, math and sciences, aquaria, sunsets, stars, nature generally, reading, flowering plants, your latest cute outfit, music from Chopin to Dire Straits. Did I mention fishing?

LOOKING FOR:

Looks: I like slender women physically. Don't care what color your hair is.
This is not a beauty pagent. I am just looking for someone kinda cute.

Personality: Nice. Ethical. Hopefully you can act like a lady. I can treat
you like one.

Intelligence: I like women who think. You don't need to worry about being too
smart around me. The more books you have read, the better.

EDUCATION: A.S Physics, B.A Philosophy, Doctor of Jurisprudence (law degree). Yes, I was a lawyer, but it's all right if you don't like lawyers because I don't like lawyers either.

ROMANTIC STUFF: I like all that cuddling type stuff. Walking on the beach in the moonlight, sure. Nobody does it, but it sounds fun...

I am Rock, of, and Gibraltar
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Fishing, hanging around, waiting for you.

I was thinking of buying a cabin cruiser but I dunno any more.

I also have a Boston Whaler 17 that has an 85 Yamaha on it.

I left Texas where I still have a house to come here to work. I wanted to get to the salt water and get a good job with a good company. Now I live on a dock with the salt water under me as I type, and I have a great job with a great company.

I always wanted to be able to fish at home. Now if it is cold or windy or hot or raining, I can cast out and come inside and watch my pole out the window. From this dock, I have caught black drum to 25#, redfish, lots of crabs, gaff top catfish, lots of hardheads, freshwater channel cat, sheepshead, croaker, stingrays, mullet, eels, and even some shrimp.

I used to think I just wanted to be retired and not have to work any more. I would like not to have to work, but I still need to do something. Maybe if I find the right lady something new will come along that needs to be done.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
There is very little I cannot do. I have done many many things in the past. If you're looking for a capable man, you are looking in the right place. I'm good at the college thing. But really tired of it. I was a good lawyer, but a good lawyer knows the law, and a great lawyer knows the judge.

I have built houses and boats and water systems. When I was in high school, I cut opals. I then and later made deer antler buttons and pipes and stuff like that. My dad was a general contractor, so my brother and I used to do a lot of things with tools. We called ourselves Koefoed Brothers Unlimited. Doug is now a general contractor near San Francisco.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am really big. I am 6-4 and weigh about 235 ( I am working on that).

Different people notice different things. Context makes a difference, as does whatever preparation people have for meeting someone. And also, it's hard to know, really, what people notice about you. It's also hard for me to see the answer to this question meaning very much. Some women like to say how beautiful they are in this box. Your pic either does or doesn't make that point, no need to put it here.

I expect to like the people I meet, and expect them to turn out to be good people. Of course I am often dissapointed, but I think I get the good side of a lot of people who maybe don't put the good side forward all that often.

I have a very intense personality. I am very friendly and outgoing; people who get it know immediately that I am someone to ask for help with a problem. I am the kind of guy who comes over and asks if you want a hand with that. And my help is very useful.

Although I am one of the mildest and kindest men you will ever meet, some women are scared of me. I really cannot blame them. Women are considered tall if they are as high as my shoulder. King Kong was a nice guy, but it took a special and brave lady to understand that.

I have spent most of my life in the company of tough guys. Construction, Landscaping, Commercial fishing, Merchant seamen. These are people who are not intimidated by anything. I intimidate people without meaning to. Especially women.

The first thing you will notice about me is that I am really big.

BOOKS
I will read just about anything. These days I get books from thrift shops and wherever I can get them for a buck or so. I take them to sea to read. I don't even have a reading chair here on the dock. No space for it. I read a lot of best sellers just because they are in the thrift shop for 50c. I will read almost any book that happens onto the boat.

I will read about anything that lives in the ocean and most things that live on the land. I have read a lot of history but these days do not much feel like it. I used to be more interested in the political, but I have come to think it is sort of useless to think about it. The world is run by just those people who ought not to be let run it. And it always has been.

At one time I read a lot of military history. Particularly the Second World War. But I am tired of it now. I guess we had to fight the Axis, but we did not have to fight the Vietnamese or get messed up in the mideast. I used to read the newspaper, but now it seems like it is just the same old stuff over and over. People act amazed when it turns out that politicians are crooks. I learned that from Watergate. Nothing changes, really. So I would rather read something else.

I liked a lot of the real classic stuff. I read the Gulag Archipelago and The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Dostoyevski Hemingway, a bunch of things I cannot think of right now. Lots of the classics really are good. Some are junk. I like a lot of the modern stuff, too. Elmore Leonard, Grisham, Le Carre, Douglas Addams: Hitchiker's guide, Ken Kesey One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest & Sometimes a Great Notion, Ray Bradbury: Farenheit 451, Aristotle: Nicomachean Ethics, Catch 22, Hermann Hesse: Steppenwolf, Jonathan Swift: Gulliver's travels and Candide, Hunter Thompson

I was sad to hear Vonnegut died, although it was his time. I really liked his stuff. Cat's Cradle, Slaughterhouse Five, etc.

MOVIES
Kind of tired of movies lately. There is less and less going on in them. There is a lot of evil in them, now, too. You are supposed to like bad people as protagonists. The effects are neat, though. I liked the animated dinosaurs in _Jurrasic Park_ for instance. Tombstone with Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday was great. I liked T2 with Arnold Schwartzenneger. 2001, Full Metal Jacket, Star Wars, Gene Hackman, Sharon Stone, Kurt Russel, Mel Gibson, Halle Berry, Callista Flockhart, Henry Fonda, Clint Eastwood, Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin, the Monty Python movies, like Life of Brian and Holy Grail.

MUSIC

Chopin to Dire Straits. Rap is not music, so that doesn't count. Country is all right if it is musical, but if they have no more to say than 6 words over and over, then Weird Al has said it on that. Like Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, CSNY Clapton, Elton John, Heart, Dan Fogerlburg, Moody Blues, Rolling Stones, Kansas, Bonnie Raitt, Juice Newton, Shania Twain, Steppenwolf, Johnny Nash, Santana, Dire Straits, Budapest string quartet,

FOODS
I should eat more vegetables. On the boats they have a lot of canned stuff. Ever read the nutrition info on canned corn? It's like 2% of your vitamin A and 12% of your sodium. It almost isn't food. I buy the frozen mixed things because for some reason in season or out, you want to buy fresh stuff and they think you are a sucker. A dollar for a peach. In Texas I have a tree that puts out hundreds a year if it does not hail on the blossums.

I like the stir fry stuff like snow peas, water chestnuts, peppers, broccoli, and so. I will put in some onions and garlic, maybe a few shrimp, some cayenne pepper, some more cayenne pepper, now we're talking.

I like Mexican food, and Korean food which is hot. I mean compared to Mexican. I eat kim chee. I also like Chinese and Thai.

When I cook myself, I like a lot of the seafood here. It is really cheap here. Lots of times free. I eat crabs on occasion but give most of mine away. In summer I often catch a dozen a day in 4 traps right off the dock. I buy oysters. I like to shuck them and then fry them in butter with cloves of garlic. Just take a toothpick and pick up an oyster then a garlic clove, and so on. I will put shrimp there, too. Possibly a little Italian Seasoning and likely some Cayenne pepper.

If I have a redfish or speckled trout, I fillet and skin the fillet and bone it out. Then I either fry it in a tempura batter, or just put it in oil or butter in the pan and put black pepper on it.

I am losing interest in beef and pork. The prices are really stupid here. They want $4 a pound for a poor cut. They are trying to get 8 for a T bone and there is almost no filet on it. Foo. I can go a half a mile down the road to the shrimp shed and get 15-25 shrimp for $2.50 or so.

Even if I buy the oysters shucked they are only about $6.50 a pint. About half that if I buy them in the shell. I got a piece of steel from one of the oilfield docks for free. A scrap of inch plate. I bought a head of a roofing hatchet for $1 in Texas and welded a pipe handle on it. I found a Dexter Russel oyster knife by the side of the road. One of my friends is an oyster shucker. Bobby sat me down at my piece of steel plate on top of a wooden wire spool I also got for free, and showed me how it is done. So I think very little of shucking oysters. I am all set up.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Food, clothing, shelter, drinkable water, sorry, I cannot get to six.

I would not like to do without fishing. Or boats. But I have done without a lot of things for a long time and I know the difference between needs and wants.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
True Love.

How to do things. How to make things. The way to accomplish something, even if it is something I do not need to do. I spend a lot of time just figuring everything out for no reason at all. I see a minnow in the water and I want to know what he is doing, what he eats, and why he is swimming like he is.

Lately I have been thinking a lot about the question of what I want to do. My small economic goals have been met. I live on the salt water. In fact, I am fishing as I write this. I used to be poor, and I had no option to do things I thought interesting. Now I can do a lot of those things, but find I don't really want to. If I really wanted to, I could buy a boat adequate and go Marlin fishing in the Gulf Stream. I don't really want to do that any more.

One thing I am pretty sure about is, if I find someone I can really care about, I will treat her like a princess.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At sea and not caring that it is Friday night, or ashore and thinking it's a good night to go down to the local bar and have a beer. There is, after all, a one in ten thousand chance I will meet the one I am looking for there. OK, it is not really that good.

On the boats I try not to think of what day it is. Time passes faster if you just sort of forget about it and then one day crew change is a couple days off. Some of the young guys really watch the clock and it makes the time pass slowly.

When I am off I don't much think about the week passing, either. I think more about rowing over to the grass on the other side of the bayou and catching a redfish. Things like that. When the biting gnats are out, I look to see what there is to do on line. But I don't seem to be able to get interested in games and stuff. I take a lot of these tests. I have answered a lot of the 'Improve Matches' questions, but at the bottom of the screen they will want to match me to someone half my age or less, who is bisexual and in a relationship and lives 6,000 miles away, too. At least they don't put guys there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am lonely and would really like to meet my special someone. Also that I think it is not very hopeful.

I never did figure out the boy/girl stuff very well. I am not very good at expressing my intererest or bringing the same from a woman. On the other hand, it never occurs to me to be cruel, hurtful, or anything like that. Not, perhaps, so much that I am not _capable_ of cruelty, etc, just that I have not the inclination for it.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to. If you would like to do so. For basically any reason under the sun. Anyone who thinks he or she has something to say to me ought to just say it.

It's nothing to talk to Drake. All sorts of people do it whenever they like. I talk to anybody who wants to ask me something. It would seem that I would be buried in messages, but I find I am able to eventually answer them all. If you are scamming, you're way in the wrong hemisphere. But sincere communications, I am almost always able to answer, and happy to do so.

I like skinny girls; that is what I like and it is not going to change. I have liked slender women since I was a kid. If you are fat, well, sorry. Please do not tell me I should like what I do not like.
