My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've obtained my goals in life, but still find myself inspired, challenged and always growing. I take my work, but never myself, seriously. Work from home, own my own business. I have known success and failure and have learned it always wise to stay humble. I don't hunt or fish and my idea of camping is a Motel 6. Prefer museums to sports, bike rides in parks, drives through the country. Love to travel (still got several places on the old Bucket List, let's compare and plan an excursion!). Movies, cuddling on the couch, pool, exploring new neighborhoods, restaurants, going out with friends, art openings, board games, swim like a fish, love the ocean, snorkeling, concerts, etc.

I will always tell you the truth, albeit sometimes more bluntly than I should (I'm working on it). I avoid drama like the plague (who needs it?). I will always be supportive and encouraging (I want you to be a better you, so I can be a better me). I never seek to control or change anyone, as I wouldn't appreciate anyone trying to control or change me (if I've learned anything it's that we cannot mold another into our ideal of what they should be, but love them for who they are--warts and all). Strong when need be, sensitive pretty much always.

No baggage, just experience. Comfortable in my own skin. Not wealthy, but doing okay. Homeowner, tax payer, bon vivant (no wait, that may be over reaching). Can be shy and quiet when uncomfortable, require a muzzle when comfortable (can't resist a straight line). Most people don't think I look my age...but, then again, most of them forgot their glasses, so....

I'd been trying to find a way to articulate this and a poster who goes under the handle 2ndCentury did a beautiful job. I asked if I could steal it and she graciously agreed. She wrote:
"At this stage of life, after raising families and being in long marriages, people list their must haves and deal breakers based on what they lacked in their previous relationship. They treat online dating like they're ordering in a restaurant but aren't happy with the menu so they ask for all kinds of substitutions. ( I've been guilty of this myself )."

It reminds me of an old saying: "You can't turn anyone into someone you can love. You have to accept them for who they are, not who you want them to be."
Maybe it's time we all stopped putting up so many road blocks. Maybe something to think about. Maybe.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Helping younger creators get a start in their careers. Hopefully, teaching them a bit about business and, maybe, life. Using my powers for good instead of evil. Enjoying myself immensely.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh (rapier wit...okay, corny sometimes)
Problem solving (my job requires that I have the ability to switch hats at a moment's notice)
Creativity--writing and drawing.
and I make a pretty darn good Lasagna!

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many to list--let's just say a bunch and leave it at that!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My adult sons (I worship the water they walk on), books, art, music, love and toothpaste.
(leaving out silly things like air, water, food, sleep, etc...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Is the Hokey Pokey REALLY what it's all about?

(I have my doubts)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out and about, in and around, sometimes downtown--is there such a thing as a typical Friday night after college?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My attorney advises me to ignore this question.
