Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am interested in meeting someone who inspires me to get off this
site, and whom I have the same effect on- someone who wants to
share a deeply connected, monogamous relationship.
Tough to acknowledge hair turning gray, much less turning loose,
yet I've had to do both. Hair cut and trimmed, instead of long in
places and non-existent in others.
I haven't owned a television in 15 years, and don't miss it. When
travelling there may be a movie that I will watch.
I like non-conformist thinking. Non-conformist behaviour tends
towards voting and how I spend money. I prefer to blend in with
people, though have no problem expressing my thoughts on
I used to travel extensively for work, and want to generally
more within this area to see what I have been missing. I enjoy
travelling on my motorcycle, but having horses in the new backyard
has cut into that pastime. Riding horses through the Santa Fe
national forest is a treat that I love indulging in.
Most personality tests I have taken indicate that I am an INTJ,
which seems consistent with my experience of myself. I am the
middle son and middle child of 7. Dag nabbit! I am generally quiet
until I get comfortable around people, which can take a few minutes
or a lifetime.
I do not have, want nor am I working to get six pack abs. I do not
care if you do or not.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm sure it's being misspent, just like my youth. I was so much
older then; I'm younger than that now.
The line at the end of Saving Private Ryan sums up my life's
ambition. When Ryan is visiting the grave of the men who died to
save him, he asks his wife to tell him that he has lived a good
life, since that is the only justification for the sacrifice those
people made to save him. I want my efforts to have justified my
Trying to enjoy it by riding my horse and ignoring irritating
people; if you voted for Romney or have a bikini picture on your
profile, we are probably not going to hit it off in any positive
sense. Watching the direction of this country over the recent past
has caused me to become as politically active as I have ever been,
volunteering to make "get out the vote" calls, and writing my state
and federal representatives. Now, if only they would listen.
I walk, ride my horse and motorcycle several times a week.
I like to go out to wildlife sanctuaries too see unusual birds and
wildlife, even though I don't know nor give a flip what their
botanical or even common names are.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Divorce, apparently - I've done it twice. Well, really. I would
like to explore other options.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Other than that thumb growing out of my forehead, maybe it is my
debonair wit and existential charm? Probably that I am casually
dressed, and can be shy in large groups. Go figure.
Maybe that I need a haircut.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I suffer Adult Onset Book Addiction: So many books, so
little time. Some of my favorites are Pirzig's Zen and the Art of
Motorcycle Maintenance; Campbell's Hero with a Thousand Faces;
Wilson's The Moral Sense. For light reading anything by Richard
Russo. Ian Rankin is good, too.
Movies: Not so many. Blazing Saddles; History of the World, Part I;
Marx Brothers, most anything else except horror films. Worlds
Fastest Indian is wonderful.
Music: Like books, too much to listen to, too little time. Anything
but Rap and Hip Hop type stuff. Love that good ol' rock & roll,
bebop, big band, some country (Marty Robbins, Willie, Guy Clarke,
Hays Carll, etc).
Food: See books and music above. Very little that I have tried that
I do not like, and very little I haven't tried.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1a - Love
1b - Friendship
2 - Motorcycles
3 - Internet
4 - Music
5- Outdoor Activities
6 - Pockets
7 - Horses
and that really is 8, so bite me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Who I might meet on OKC, hoping that she has all her own teeth and
hair, whether she will have to produce a receipt for them. She
would be able to reed and cifer reel gud. Education is important,
dag nabbit all. And of course, a sense of humor would be wonderful.
If I get serious, you would definitely be warned before hand.
Something like "Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!"
Other thoughts include where this country is headed; where to go on
the next vacation; whether she will really have a receipt.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Yup, definitely am. Much more often than I am not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am tasty on toast.

I have no rational answer to that question, but would like to hear
