Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a bear approaching middle-age who is more interested in staying
home most nights than hitting the bar. I have a lot of
acquaintances and a few friends. I guess I'm a sensitive person who
is quite protective of my feelings so I don't mix much locally. I'm
pretty dull by gay standards since I don't get into current pop
culture too much. I'm more interested in History, visiting museums
and monuments, going on quick road trips and shooting pix wherever
something catches my eye.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm just living from day to day. I'm trying to let go of the whole
philosophical "Why am I here?" thing and just be in the moment.
There isn't much structure or a set schedule to my daily routine. I
mostly am focusing on learning a little cooking, diving into
photography (and photogrammetry too - please do contact me if you
knew what that meant) with a vengeance and reading whatever crosses
the RSS feeds online.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Unfortunately, I have a rapier sharp wit when I get upset or feel
threatened. One of these days my mouth is gonna get me creamed.
Some of my friends would say that I have a way with words when I'm
inspired. Others think that I have a good eye for photography. I
personally think I'm just a sensitive guy hiding behind a smartass
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have the best fashion sense for my body type. It's been a
long time since I set foot inside a clothing store that wasn't
Goodwill or Savers. I'm not a slob but my look is probably badly
out of date and doesn't usually flatter me. Right now, all that
matters to me is my clothes are clean and comfortable even if a bit
dated. I know, I know, I need to turn in my pink card for this one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't read books so much like I used to. I enjoy a good
thriller/horror movie. I'm not a slasher flick whore, but more into
the type of movies where there is an honest try at a good scare via
tension. I love documentaries about Antiquity, Art &
Architecture and nearly any facet of History. I enjoy SciFi too. I
mostly lean in the Classical Music direction. I don't know that
much about it, but I just listen on a casual basis and grab
whatever I like. Throw in a little New Wave and Pop and you pretty
much have my listening list. My iTunes library literally starts
with ABBA and ends with Xanadu (oh God I just dated myself). As for
food, well you will never, ever meet anyone who's a junk-food
junkie like me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My two cats Bailey & Peaches, Coca Cola, my family, my iPhone
and the Internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I need to let go of a lot of the issues about what motivates
people. I just need to accept that I can't fix the world and all of
its problems. I'm just finally breaking myself of the habit of
trying to offer up unsolicited advice to friends and family when
they complain about things that are wrong. That's the problem with
me--I care too much about things that are out of my control
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Pretty much I'm home on Friday nights. I'm a documentary fiend and
have been hoarding stuff off my TiVo and elsewhere for years. I
pretty much sit at the Mac with a few "chat" tabs open while I fire
up iTunes and sit and organize my terabytes of movies and
documentaries. I might very well have at least as many or more
documentaries than the Public Library.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's pretty simple--I have AIDS. Yeah, thats what I said. I'm
healthy and will live a long time but with my pet virus comes a lot
of social/sexual complications that makes everyone uncomfortable.
After nine years of living openly with it you'd think I'd have a
pretty thick skin but it still humiliates me deeply when someone
tells me they're sorry and cuts off all contact with me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're into History especially. History geeks trip me out big time!
I'm a guarded guy at first. I'll always answer anything you ask of
me honestly but I'm a bit protective of myself with my emotions
until I feel safe.
