Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
OKC told me I should put the body shot 1st - is that a subtle way
of telling me I have a face for radio?
I'm a coast hopper, most at home here in this wonderful and
difficult city than anywhere else I've lived.
My family did not prepare me for the realities of the world. Raised
to have integrity, to be honest, appreciative and grateful, to
treat people well and to share my toys, I find I gravitate to those
who have an equally unrealistic view of the world.

Though I've loved them, I have to admit a certain suspicion of
those who don't drink coffee.
I believe there is no such thing as "a little" patchouli.
The young'uns seem to like me, but I'm looking for someone closer
to my own age . . .
I was raised Jewish "Lite" and identify more with the culture than
the religion - a soulful pragmatist (Agnostic).
I can drive a standard.
You will hear Carl Kasell's voice on my home answering
I was married. I was divorced. I am single. (divorced over 8 years
ago) Nothing hidden here. . .
Truth in advertising: Please be honest in your profile and have
a couple recent photos - and not just of your eye, or your torso or
crotch (you know who you are), or hiding behind sunglasses
- if you want to make contact. This is a visual medium. You've seen
me. It's only fair...
Fortune favors the bold. And remember, the question is "what
is your age," not "what do you
wish were your age."

I feel the same I'll get back in touch and we can take it from

I'm not here to judge you, but I'm also not here to meet you.**

Too many to write but I'm in the process of compiling a

So many sounds for so many moods. I am very susceptible to "ear

If the personality evaluations and match algorithms here are in any
way accurate. (Mine says at the top that I'm "More Submissive" and
at the bottom "Less Romantic." While it's true that I rarely make
the first move, I don't think those who know me would call me
