Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've had a good life, including two long marriages and two
daughters. I found what I thought would be my final relationship,
one we would take to our graves, however it turns out that she
really wasn't available. The good news is that I'm hopeful I can
still find that special woman.
I'm fit, healthy, financially solvent, an avid public radio
listener, tread lightly on the planet, read a lot, see a lot of
movies, mostly Netflix, am car free and use a bicycle and public
transportation to get around (though not adverse to owning one),
like to garden, am mostly vegan (the Roman variety, "When in Rome
..."; and you are Rome), work out five days / week, and have a
healthy libido (though not in any hurry).
I have a great career working 33 years as a fundraiser for
nonprofits, the last eight as a consultant. This provides a lot of
flexibility in my schedule.
I'm open to a wide variety of experience. If you're middle of the
road or conservative, I will likely not want to become lovers.
Physically active is high on the list, as is healthy and thoughtful
eating. The cliched 'communication' can't be overemphasized. Oh,
and I adore cuddlers.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my half hour wake-up morning stretch/yoga; a strong sense of
gratitude; I can actually do without a lot, so a list of physical
things I can do without seems silly, yet I get the question; I'm
taking this question too seriously!
