My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I go from clean-shaven to light-bearded often so look at all my photos. (Yes, I'm willing to keep one style for a special person)

This isn't your standard everyday OKC profile; if you're looking a generic-type man, move on. I'm unique, but in a good way (so I've been told). And unlike anyone else you'll meet here, I can honestly say I changed the world you live in.

It is not possible to distill a person down to a small series of answers to OkCupid questions, so instead, I'll offer:

24 or so random facts about me (some little known)

I'm a Chocoholic. Big time.

I'm an Incurable Romantic.

I currently have 3 cats who can perform a variety of tricks. One even plays the piano. (She's on YouTube)

I was EXTREMELY allergic to cats and hated them, but "cats" were a non-negotiable requirement for my former S.O.. When we parted, I kept the cats. I'm no longer allergic to them any more -- the constant exposure acted like allergy shots.

I was first interviewed on TV when I was about 9. Since then, I've been interviewed on TV, radio, and newspapers several times. Once the National Enquirer paid me for an interview. I don't feel famous, and I'm not.

I've never been interviewed by NPR, but I was asked to read the galley-proof for the memoirs of a very well-known NPR personality. (I declined, as I didn't feel qualified)

I'm afraid of heights, but still managed to get my pilots' license.

I believe one should stay inside an airplane, and not willingly jump out.

Al Gore didn't invent the Internet. I know this because I wrote part of the proposal to build it.

I'm a Lefty. Lefties are the only ones in their Right minds.

I once was paid as an escort (no, I know what you're thinking) -- a *tour* escort -- taking a large group of seniors to Seattle & Vancouver's World Fair.

I sing badly, but somehow got into my high school's Acapella and Madrigal choirs (I think they were desperate). I almost got kicked out for yawning during a concert.

I'm a "supertaster" which means my taste buds are extra sensitive to the bitter compounds found in some vegetables -- especially broccoli & Brussels Sprouts. I don't eat broccoli (if a former President didn't like it, I guess it's OK for me not to either) Yuck! So there!

I've been tested and my hearing is twice as sensitive as "normal". Loud sound is painful, and I often wear earplugs at movies, dances, and concerts.

I have two left feet and am incredibly shy, yet I regularly get up before large groups of people and teach them to dance.

Did I mention I'm a klutz?

I coached high school wrestling for several years.

I've been privileged to know several Olympic athletes. I'm absolutely bowed over by their drive and dedication. Even if I had superb athletic skill (I'm a klutz, remember?), I couldn't do what they do, mentally.

I was a computer geek before the term was invented.

I like my Macintosh, and dislike those Windows Pee-Cees. (But I volunteer at the community center helping people with their PCs)

I'm a "Folkie". Especially the live, acoustic kind.

In Western astrology, I'm a Capricorn; in Eastern, a Rat. Live with it.

Part of my anatomy made Michigan medical history. Really.

"Do not mistake activity for achievement". Found this in a fortune cookie several years ago. Great advice and my motto.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've lived a good exciting life, but to paraphrase Robert Browning:
"Grow old with me -- the best is yet to come" and I'm looking forward to every new day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Training cats. (Really!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
* I've been told my eyes are an unusually dark shade of brown...
* I look *a lot* younger than I am (I'm really 105)...
* I don't act my age. Age is just a number.
* I'm quite shy around members of the opposite sex...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many to decide between as being favorites!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sorry, I can't narrow it to only 6, but high in the list would be Chocolate, Sharing, Affection, Nature, Love, Sex, .....Damn, that's 6 already and I haven't even gotten started!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The incongruities of life such as:
*Are all the good women really taken?
*Why will OKCupid suggest someone 8773 miles away when my "looking for" filters are set to "Near me"? Or why OKC suggests "You might like" a 33 yr old (I'm looking for a partner, not a daughter!).
*Why can't OKC do math? How can I for example be a 98% Match and 16% Enemy at the same time?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I might be out with friends, enjoying a quiet evening at home, or at a dance.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
There's something special about you.
You are curious about the world around you.
You can take a joke and are not easily offended.
You believe that sarcasm is a spice of life when used sparingly.
You can spell (using spell check is ok), and are generally happy.
You, love to kiss, and cuddle like a cat on the sofa.
Your eyes are bright and convey the depth of your spirit.
You believe: Be yourself — everyone else is already taken.

The rest is negotiable. (well, you can’t be a blood relative)
