Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After 25 years of being married, I have been alone for over four
years. I have dated a number of women, but still looking for the
right person who would like to go to a sporting event or an arts
event, an elegant dinner out or a picnic on the beach, a weekend
trip to a new destination or a walk around one of Seattle's great
I took early retirement from teaching at the college level and now
work in retail. I am well educated (MA and Ph D -ABD) and well
traveled (Europe, North Africa, South and Central America and
I want to enjoy life - lived fully with a woman who does not smoke,
who is politically progressive and aware but not judgemental about
religion. I would like to be with a woman of average height and
weight (or slim). Education is important, but not as important as
being curious about many topics.
I am honest, loving, and seeking. I am good at being alone, but to
me most events in life are "better together".
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Restructuring, reorganizing and re-creating my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, listening, talking, holding hands, showing that I care
when with the right woman...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many to list, but to give you an idea: books by Ernst Bloch;
movies that make you laugh and then cry and then do it all again;
and as for food - almost any ethnic food done well (I am an
omnivore but not in love with beef or squash).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Food, water, air, a safe place to sleep, a human voice, some
interaction with others (human, animal, flora). I think I could
live without most things I like, if I really had to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Relationships with my son and his wife, my friends, my co-workers.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a cultural center to which I belong - in some ways the only
organization to which I really belong.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not much given the world today, but after meeting face to face I
will be completely open to all questions.
