Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am about to update much of this....
as it is much needed...very soon...
I am transplanted from the Chicago area...(and am strongly
considering moving back within the next 6 months and have been
perusing okc profiles there, in case you are wondering why I looked
at or liked your profile, however nothing is etched in stone- I
have looked at other areas in virginia and the Carolinas as well).
I miss the diversity of culture, and the culture. I am kind of a
renaissance man-I am interested and have knowledge and talents in
just about everything intellectually, artistically and spiritually.
I believe in compassion. I just read that and it sounds a bit
conceited.:-)...what I mean is that I am interested in everything.
I am musically inclined and love all types of music- and like the
arts, literature, film (as in more the arthouse, less the
blockbuster). I like intelligent conversation. I have a sense of
humor and can get pretty "base" sometimes as well. I can also
handle tools pretty well- I can repair and/or make stuff. I cycle
and work out and am health conscious -but not an absolute fanatic.
I am socially conscious also, and my views are "pragmatically
progressive"...I believe in compassion.. And I am very accepting
and open-minded and believe everyone has a right to be whomever
they are as long as it harms no one or nothing else..I am also very
open-minded spiritually and accept many people's views-I am working
toward being more of a minimalist-not fanatically-yet-(which is
hard when I have Amazon Prime :-)) ....I also try to make sure
those who are important to me know it. I tell them that they are
appreciated.. I love being with people that I care about and the
person that I am "with." However I am happy being by myself-as a
matter of fact I relish "me time."I don't chase all the trappings
of what people generally define themselves with these days.I am
easy-going,affectionate and a bit of a "softie"... phew...that is
more "I's" than I care to use usually.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it...trying to grow and learn and change and evolve...moving
forward, life is not a goal, it is what happens daily and you have
to appreciate it-there are going to be down times. Also, in
relationships-it isn't always going to be bells and
whistles-hopefully often enough-but there are going to be days
where you both just had a routine day and are going to appreciate
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hopefully more things that are important than those that
aren't!/:-)Oh I could get really silly here...or dirty (humor...of
course...)...Hmmm...let me get back to this on that-this seems to
be a question that could open to conceit....plus-everyone has
multiple talents...and some don't even realize things that they are
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
For my response here, I asked a woman whom I have had a first
meeting with similar to what one from this site would be like (we
remain good friends)...she said-"You are handsome, you have nice
eyes, and you dress with some sense of fashion"...she also says
that I am smart, but that that isn't something that you notice
without conversation. My answer probably would've been "that I'm
taller than average-luckily-'cuz I have male pattern baldness
setting in...:-)...oh and maybe that I am in decent shape and look
ok for being over 40....and that I can speak in complete sentences
using proper grammar"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books-Steinbeck,...confederacy of Dunces...jeez...just about
anything printed or cyber printed fiction or nonfiction I read all
the time (yes, I am a 'bathroom reader' even)...movies-Lars and the
Real Girl, Black Swan, Shawshank, -indie,arthouse,foreign, anything
with character,plot,message,humor, not usually into the
action,violent,etc....music-everything and I mean that-some more
than others but lately-a lot of new independent stuff,
classical,jazz,alt,-I am not stuck on stuff that I listened to in
high school as the last answer to music...tv-Big Bang Theory, and
PBS are the only things that I will go out of the way to
watch...food-I am a vegetarian and a foodie-so all ethnic foods and
regional foods-(Olive Garden is not my idea of Italian), If I am
visiting somewhere that I have not been, I generally try to find a
regular restaurant-not a chain.(with the exception of The Original
Pancake House franchises-NOT IHOP)-..I like to cook in the winter
(meaning trying recipes and being adventurous not throwing
something in a pan with some salt)....
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
breathable air, clean water, edible safe healthy food....shelter
from the elements...soul/mind/body in full function..and laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Too many things! My daughter, philosophy,food, sex, if I should or
not, what I am doing tomorrow....how I can change things that I
can, what that noise was, does E really=MC2....will it snow
tomorrow, politics, the environment, did I lock the door.... what
to think about next....:-D
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I grocery shop and prepare for the weekend in the winter. In the
summer I may be cycling or doing something outside. All is trumped
of course if there is something social, or some decent
entertainment to go see or something good going on.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
like most people who answer here have said-It's private-If I admit
it-It becomes PUBLIC....
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are open-minded and compassionate. Artistic type,intellectual

somewhat about your health...can accept that I don't eat meat... Do

wing or tea party we won't click...and I am accepting of faiths,
