Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am on a quest that I don't know where it will lead me, but I hope
will be interesting in the journey. How's that for intentionally
vague!? lol .. My quest is to find a really solid and long lasting
connection with a loving woman who I may revere in my heart and be
a true trustworthy and devoted companion in all things we do. A
true 'team' player. 'Team' = me + you. .. In some ways I feel like
I like to do outdoor activities all seasons... skiing (both
kinds)gardening, walking (I fast walk when alone), biking, tennis,
golf, day trips, boating, going to fairs, auctions, garage sales
and probably things you like to do. I am Ivy-university educated. I
have a very easy-going & accomodating personality, not focused
just on me, attentive to you, and can be spontaneous and
I am a logical thinker, a problem-solver, a speculator, a
prognosticator, a dreamer/visonary, a true Gemini !
I like to do things with others & especially a special someone,
but also value some alone time.
I have had the privilege as a citizen activist for historic
preservation, to have worked with both sides of the aisle to pass
bills in Congress to expand one of our sacred National Parks. That
included giving testimony before both houses of the US Congress - a
unique insight into the mechanics of our congressional
processes....now, how many people do you know that have done that
before? In some cases, I have passed more legislation as a citizen,
than some of the lazy bums in our state legislature, who have never
passed anything. Shame on them! LoL 😄😄
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Looking for truly interesting women for , ST or LTR and lovers.
Prefer LTR...but...at my age, can't be too fussy...haha! :-D and
maintaining my home's aging systems...(I'm thinking of a divorce!
From this house..Hahaha!)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, being empathetic and good counsel...being loyal &
monogamous. Empathetic & knowledgable & experienced.
Smiling too! 😃 I like to be a happy camper even when the 'you know
what' hits the fan! LOL 😄
I also have a serious side with determination to solve difficult
problems that everyday life throws at us all.
I'm really good at fixing things too, and home improvements
(although I still suck at finishing sheetrock joints! UGH!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can be very outgoing immediately or a little reserved and THEN
very outgoing . Most people find me a warm and friendly
personality, and easy to talk to. I don't curse, not rude (that I
know of), self -deprecating humor, I employ gentlemanly manners,
and take one day at a time (especially on matters of the heart). I
am respectful...sometimes maybe to a fault...LoL! But don't take my
respect for a lack of interest. :-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too much to list.. just about everything, you'll have to ask me.
A couple faves: "The Horse Whisperer" & LUV the
"Let It Ride" A great comedy! "The Chronicles of Riddick", Carl
Sagan's "Contact" (though I have come to the conclusion that we are
alone in the universe) Music: Coldplay, John Williams, James
Taylor, Hall & Oates, the late, but missed John Denver, some
Madonna, some Lady Gaga...Matchbox Twenty (fav is "she's so
mean"...Definitely all things SEAL... the list goes on.. you can
see music is not a single genre for me. ;-). Recently saw
'Renaissance' and Bruce Hornsby in concert.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Guess? oh and ......
St Louis Cardinals baseball
Cornell Big Red college hockey & Lacrosse......
& Breakfast! I Luvvvvvvvv Breakfast and have had some
fascinating conversations over it. Lol
family and friends go without saying...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Is the big-bang theory really credible, or just a construct
designed to explain the unexplainable origins of the universe, how
things are put together, and the always ever present?... The
irressitable "why" question, and ...women, of course.
I enjoy programs that deal with big questions, like the true
origins of humans, why did nations form the way they did, etc..
it's fun to ponder and interesting when science or anthropology
develops credible evidence.
I really luv the show "Quirky" on the Sundance Channel. Also, big
fan of 'Shark Tank', 'Wheeler Dealers' ( British car flipping
show), 'Million Dollar Listings', and similar reality shows where I
can get an insight.....I rarely watch anything on the standard
networks that are scripted or acted.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Whatever comes up, no set routine. Lol
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
shhhh! I haven't rated any "awards" on this site from the women out
there.... And, I'm not the 'charasmatic' type - so I won't be
causing your eyes to glaze over in wonder & blind admiration.
Isn't it "ok" to be just 'average' in this century?
I rarely watch network programs on ABC/NBC/CBS/FOX
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You consider yourself (and think I may too) interesting, sexy,
sensual, like conversation, do not live your life for politics, and
like to do things, but are not 'manic' and can slow down to relax
and smell the roses. (I have a very easy going nature) Helps if you
like to ski or play tennis/golf, but not required (we only go
around once, so they say) AND, you want to get together to chat IN
PERSON (over a nice beverage) and not endlessly e-mail. ugh!
I am VERY open to a long distance relationship, as I am now
retired, distance within reason (1-2 hrs drive time), and as I am a
caregiver for an elderly parent, some flexibility in planning
weekends is appreciated. In future, I am potentially willing to
move if the right one comes along... haha...21st century.. guys
have to be willing to move for their women too! ☺️
