Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm looking for a nice looking, intelligent, fit, appreciative
woman to be with--one with no financial baggage. I'm not with
anyone now...and this really sux.
WHAT I OFFER:
I stand 6'5" and weigh 250 lbs, and I think I carry it well (check
the photos). I've been told more than once that I look 20 years
younger than my age and I have worked hard at doing so. Have played
competitive sports all my life but the knees finally gave out.
Also, I'm a former 6 handicap golfer and advanced SCUBA
Most of my working career has been in the field of commercial
banking & finance-- working for major banks (like B of A, Wells
Fargo, etc. and commercial finance companies like CIT. No drugs, no
vices, don't smoke, have an occasional glass of wine or a cold beer
when the weather is hot. Have a university degree and some
post-graduate work and am a former U.S. Naval Officer. Sorry, all
you goldiggers out there; I am far from being rich but I do own my
home unencumbered and am financially stable. I’m a good listener
and have been told I have a good sense of humor. And there is no
"drama" in my life.
After 21 years of living in that rat-race called Los Angeles (hence
the "ex-beachboy" handle), and 12 years in Atlanta before that, I’m
back in the Bluegrass cheering for the ‘Cats. I’m ashamed that I
haven’t seen more of this pretty state, so one of my near-term
goals is to see some of its wonders, and have fun doing it ....but
doing it alone is no fun. So I am trying to find an attractive,
fun-loving woman to share a picnic basket with.
Some people call me old fashioned but it is still instinctive for
me to stand when a woman enters the room, to open doors for her and
to pull back her chair at the dinner table. The downside to that is
that I have to admit to not being the sappy, wus-ified
Metroman..... but I will care for you and you will feel safe when
you are around me. But since I have been out of the chase for quite
a while, I have long since lost most of my dating skills and
forgotten most of my best pickup lines. So if I contact you and I
seem a little awkward in my approach, that’s the reason.
Initially, your appearance will play a big role in whether or not I
make contact with you or answer your inquiries. A few extra pounds
are OK (don't we all have a few at this age?) but I could never
have a romantic relationship with a fat woman. Call me picky if you
wish, but at least I'm up-front with you. I have worked out
thousands upon thousands of hours trying to keep myself looking
fairly attractive to women in appearance, dress, demeanor and
intellect and I seek that in return.
So that's about it for me. I think you'll like me--most people do;
they think I am intelligent (that's debatable), conversational on a
myriad of topics, interesting and fun to be around. I am
non-confrontational and non-combative but I can hold my own if I
have to. I am very happy with my life right now; physically, I feel
great and every part of me works as it should (except the knees).
But I know I could be happier if I could find a good woman to share
everything; I realize that life is not complete without one.
After reading this, if you would like to explore a relationship,
preferably a long-term committed one, let's get together for coffee
somewhere and see if we like each other and have any mutual
interest in taking it further. What do you have to lose—30 minutes
that you might otherwise waste? I promise you that you won’t be
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Retired, fixing up the house, yardwork, visiting friends around the
country, trying to keep in shape, doing some volunteer work and
walking my pretty little rescue dog. In addition, I am taking
the local UK Extension College, exploring a possible second career
in webpage design to replace assets lost in the dot.com and
subprime financial fiascoes. Have been staying close to home lately
but am getting real bored with that. E-town is a good, safe, family
town, but there's not an awful lot of fun things for a single guy
to do here.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Household improvements, among other things. Since construction
costs have soared, I have taught myself how to use a hammer and
saw. I built a 16' floor-to-ceiling mahogany-stained bookcase along
one wall, retiled my kitchen and dining room floors & built a
three-level deck around my hot tub. I'm proud of my handiwork since
I'm not a blue collar guy. My property is kept attractive, and I
know a lot about computer software and hardware. And my mind is
crammed full of a lot of useless Jeopardy-type trivia.

gratuitous violence. Last watched - "American Sniper", "Monuments

heavy metal, although I think groups like the old "KISS" group are
a real hoot.
FOOD--Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean, Thai, Chinese, Japanese,
U.S. country cooking and a good juicy hamburger--I'm not much of a
steak and potatoes guy but I LUV to be around good cooks. :-)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-the love of a good woman
-people who knew me when I was younger.
-a cold beer on a hot day.
-my old pals and teammates--I love 'em all
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1. How we are screwing up a great country--how can we possibly do
this to ourselves?
2. How I can get all our politicians fired and replaced by the
Wal-mart management team--the most competent management team of the
most successful corporation ever to have existed on this
3. Why a really great guy like me would still be out there on his
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
These days, mostly stay at home but am looking for someone to go
out with to check out the action like I used to.....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes get moist when I watch very emotional scenes in movies.
It's really hard to maintain a macho reputation when I do that.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Thanks for reading this profile. I'm flattered that you did. If my
profile above meets your standards or if you just want some more
info, why not message me? If you're in doubt, give it a shot--what
do you have to lose? After all, your life isn't fulfilling now or
you wouldn't be in here reading men's profiles, would you?
ADDENDUM: If you are a staunch Obama supporter and/or you espouse
his fascist & socialist principles, please do not contact
me--we would be at each other's throats all night.
