Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Tall, built and intelligent. Secure in myself and my manhood.
Lost love of my life to cancer after 22 faithful years
I'm getting over it and won't bring it up unless you do.
Experience tells me there is bound to be a rebound relationship or
two, so I'm not opposed to something casual or a to a night out to
meet someone who intrigues me even without the prospect of
I see life as a spectrum of color not grey or black/white. Best
summary is a liberal redneck. I believe in safety nets, but that
people have responsibilities too. I hate the hateful and am
intolerant of intolerance. This goes for the radical right and
Have lived an interesting life which has taken the edges off the
sharper parts of my personality. My friends will tell you I have a
demented sense of humor, but that doesn't stop them from laughing
at my jokes.
Not looking for a mother or caretaker. I don't think of myself as a
romantic, but do have that side, coming home to someone, put my
arms around them, nuzzle their neck, earlobe, ...
I give flowers/etc. when not expected. You won't see me trying to
buy my way out after pissing you off.
I could go on for pages, but what would be talk about later?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work: Professional but don't usually have to wear a suit and tie.
(When I do, I rock it.)
Study: My job requires continuous studying to keep up with the
industry, luckily I like to read and am a quick study.
Self: I've been in a serious relationship for all buy 2 or 3 years
in my adult life. Now is the time for me to do things for me. Get
back in shape. At the rate I'm going, I will be back in high school
weight/shape by Summer.
Short term: enjoy life more. Kayaking, camping, sailing,
Long term: Still deciding.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
figuring things out.
Very bright with a natural technical ability. Reading comes easy;
along with eclectic interests means that I'm good at a great many
things and seeing the big picture that ties it all together. It has
also helped me learn to appreciate things outside my normal comfort
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My size, blue eyes and smile. Some say I have a nice ass.
Oh yeah, when I get wound up I swear like the sailor I used to be.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This entire profile turned into an essay, so I'll do my best to be
brief. More to talk about later.
So, I'll just include the top 5 artists I would bring to a desert
Books: Sci-fi is my favorite. I would have to go with the most
prolific and thought provoking. Heinlein, Asimov, Clark, Brin and
throw in King and his pseudonyms.
Movies: Tarantino, Spielberg, Hitchcock, Lucas and the Coen
TV: Simpsons, Mash, Star Gate, Star Trek and SNL.
Other than doing my best to see every Vikings game, I'm not into
watching sports. I would rather take that time and do something
Music: Tom Petty (Heartbreakers and Wilburys), Neil Young (and his
various associations), Ozzy (and Sabbath), Eric Clapton (and his
various bands) and Dave Grohl (Nirvana and Foo Fighters)
I have a large tape, lp, cd collection, but you won't find twangy
country or most hip-hop/rap in it. I like reggae/ska in the
background when I read or work where others might like classical or
Food: Pizza, burgers, fries/misc. deep fried stuff and
Prefer local dives over franchises. (Anchor, Gronks, Blackwoods,
Hugos, Lees.) Wendys over McDonalds if I have to drive through,
otherwise it's Gordys, A&W or A&Dubs.
Prefer liquor over beer and sweet wine over dry or bitter.
I'm even a decent cook if forced.
Not a fan of Green Peppers and vinegar/spoiled tasting things, but
still give new things a try and revisit things I haven't liked in
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hills, trees, water (Northern Minnesota), music, books and my
laptop(replaces music and books).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, politics, etc.
I've come to think that too many people are so caught up in the
past they don't see what's coming. Conservatives are stuck in the
1860s, liberals in the 1960s and no one is looking at 2060.
Sometimes I just like to put on my tunes, do something physical and
enjoy the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes out with friends, usually around a camp fire, listening
to music and talking. Winter isn't my favorite season, but I love
Minnesota, so have to deal with it.
Otherwise reading and listening to music, but sometimes eyes glued
to the TV (love/hate relationship with it)...oh Friday, gotta watch
Bill Maher or at least record it for later.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not going to post it here for all the world, but face to face,
there isn't much I won't fess up to. Even the stuff I'm ashamed of
is part of who I am, so I'm not going to lie about it.
You should message me if

you are looking for a man. Someone who knows who they are and isn't
ashamed of it.
I will answer, but if I'm not interested, it will be because of
your profile/answers not your looks. After looking at the available
profiles, I can't believe the number of narrow minded people in
Duluth. Almost makes me want to move to the Cities again.
If you are can watch Fox News or Jesse Jackson/Al Sharpton for more
than 10-15 minutes without turning the channel then we probably
aren't a great match.
