Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was trained as an attorney, but became disillusioned by the legal
profession. I practiced down in the South for many years, and moved
back to Syracuse to be closer to family.
I recently discovered that I am an INFP-type personality (for what
I am huge fan of metal music and good food, which I guess is kind
of a strange combination. I typically spend my free time going out
to eat, or checking out live music. I am a foodie, but
unfortunately cannot cook.
Because the music scene (at least for metal) is sparse in Syracuse,
I often travel to go see shows.
I did not know what to put for "Smoking," because I am assuming it
refers to cigarette smoking, which I do not do. On occasion, when
the weather is nice, I will smoke a cigar outdoors, or inside if I
am near a cigar lounge, which should not be confused with a retail
outlet that merely sells cigars.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a single cigar lounge
in the Syracuse area.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have been told I am good at listening to other people and helping
them solve their problems.
I am also a good writer, because I constantly had to write for my

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books -- A Confederacy of Dunces, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,
Anything related to history (I know that is extremely broad), but
not typically biographies. I am more interested in events than
people in that regard.
Movies -- Cult Classics (B-rated movies with something endearing
about them), Action Movies, Comedies, Horror, Science
Shows -- Big Bang Theory, Tosh.O, Family Guy, the Military
Music -- Mostly heavy metal (lately leaning towards the slower,
groovy stuff such as Down or Monster Magnet), Also like the
classics such as old Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Slayer,
I also listen to blues, old country -- Johnny Cash is one of my
favorites. I despise pop country, because it has no soul or feeling
to it) and classic rock.
Food- I am up for anything, as long as I cannot smell cumin. It
smells like BO to me. Anytime, a smell or taste from a spice is
called "earthy," I know I probably won't like it, because

Staying home watching a movie or reading a book. Out of town at a

I walk with canes and use a wheelchair for longer distances. I
figured for those people for whom it is not an issue, they would
