Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I consider myself to be somewhat of a paradox...very much down to
earth, easygoing, witty, sharp, and funny as hell (or so I am
told); love to get really silly at times. But I can be serious and
also have a sensitive side. I have the innate ability to think,
feel, care, and love very deeply.
Above all else, I value intelligence, honesty, beauty (both
internal and external), integrity, keen sense of humor, quick wit,
passion, and loyalty in a possible mate. I'd describe myself as
having the same characteristics as above.
Worked hard my entire life and became quite successful and
financially stable...very recently gave up the 9-5 rat race from
media/ advertising / publishing business...used to commute and wear
a suit and tie every work day for 33 years and now I don't have
to!! - it is awesome...one of my passions now is studying and
investing in the financial markets...I am also doing some volunteer
work at a soup kitchen in downtown Baltimore.
Had a life-changing experience in 1992 when we adopted a beautiful
1 year old boy from Peru. He's now 20 and I'm so proud of the young
man he's grown up to be.
I love rock music (mostly late 60's and 70's, (I know, still stuck
in my musical time warp)). Huge Ravens, O's, Terps fan. Recently
discovered the joys of crossword puzzles; really keeps my mind
sharp and I complete (usually) two per day.
I am very much grounded and ready to see what the next phase of
life brings...eager to enjoy the company of a wonderful woman to
share with me all that is good, fun, and meaningful in this
I'm looking for someone who GETS ME and understands me and, of
course, vice versa.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have the ability to give of myself 100% in something/anything
that I feel is important, e. g., a relationship; loving my mate in
every possible way and making her feel like the most important and
special person on Earth, intelligent conversation, keeping the
people around me smiling, laughing, and happy, cooking and
grilling, making the people that I care about feel loved and
comfortable, useless trivia, taking care of business, somewhat of a
financial whiz, etc.

sports as shown above; Curb Your Enthus., The Big Bang Theory,
Seinfeld (still!), CNBC, good movies from ones that make you think
and feel to silly ones; [e. g. Goodfellas, Annie Hall, Pulp
Fiction, West Side Story, Fargo, Caddyshack, Superbad]; music
(mostly classic rock)...I read The Sun every day and am subscribed
to many financial newsletters which I read voraciously (novels, not
so much, although I do appreciate the classics).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the love and companionship of a great woman, my son, family, my
dogs, music, dark-roast coffee, following my favorite sports teams
