Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Were you looking for something?
----- A SENSE OF THE MIRACULOUS IN EVERY DAY LIFE"
"So that's what love is?"
"Multiply it by infinity and take it
to the depth of forever and you will
still have barely a glimpse of what
I am talking about."
Well, I'll just pretend I am writing to that one special person.
What can I tell you about myself? A large part of me is the same as
you, with you, ---we feel completely at ease, at home with each
other. You'd know me in a single word, spoken or even written. It
can take time to reach that point or it can happen quickly
--Wham---who can tell. I'm kinda tired of not having you around.
Such things don't seem to be easily found. It seems a long time and
so far away, and I wonder if I can even let someone get in that
close again----can you?
At first, I think that you would frighten me quite a bit. It's easy
to look at you an think "you are just right". It would be easy to
become infatuated with you and I hope to do so. I can't imagine
building something worthwhile without starting with infatuation.
That infatuated spark is so......wonderful, isn't it. But I'd have
my doubts that I would be up to the task of you, that I'd
disappoint you............more scary is I think I would not live up
to my own expectations of what I should be for you. Does that make
sense? It's not that I lack confidence, it's just that as life
moves on we all have such high (higher, highest) expectations. Me
too. But really, look at some profiles (men's and women's) and see
how lofty those expectations are.
I am not a writer, but writing at first and then some, would be my
preferred method of getting to know you. Write to you, write you,
write with you.
Seeking----????? mmmmm---- Beatrix Kiddo? :) , Bill.
Seeking---someone who believes in impossible things.
I teach---does it matter what I teach? I am a full professor at a
university if that matters. I seem to get a good reaction from many
of my students. That is most of what keeps me
going....y'know--makes life fun. My job is fun. It is also
demanding. You would understand the commitment I have to my job
which must be an obsession/compulsion in order to do it well.
Teaching---you can't really do it well if it is not part of
I could say a great deal about myself, but then that is just window
dressing and packaging. It's the dynamic and interactive part of a
person that defines them. You know that and know that you can't get
to know someone without the interaction. So, when you are
ready.......I'd spend a lifetime getting to know someone and I'd
know them better than anyone else, and yet hope to still have a
lifetime of new things to learn about them. Perfection is a quest,
and not directly achievable.
I can't say how things would work, but I know that we'd have to
open up to each other in the most remarkably open and engaging
manner. ? Could you get to know me?
I realize I've not said much about myself here. Again---window
dressing. Ask, interact, and I'll tell you. The better part of me
is the discourse itself. I'd like to have that dialogue with
I read profiles here. Some remind me of things long past, like
home. Home---what I call home. So, "home" is a window I look out of
in a small castle like building. It is thick with those early life
memories. I look out the window with you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
If I knew all the answers to that then I probably would not be
here. At this point in life I move forward in a predictable
I need to get to work for the day and stop dallying with writing
Hmmm....the most honest answer I can give about what I am doing
with my life....is.....I am hoping to find you. I'm not sure how to
do that. I remain humbly hopeful. I don't think I have a real
choice in this, as it seems to be simply my nature to hope for such
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Solving problems. Avoiding conflict. ...........and making strange
connections to movies and movie quotes :)
Instigation, Innuendo. These things I excel at.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One of the first things people notice about me is that I am not
really into the whole first impression thing. It takes more to know
someone, something, anything---at any level of depth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Isaac Asimov--anything, Foundation. LOTR. Science Fiction is the
favorite, but I like the classics also, Tale of Two Cities, Brave
New World, Julius Caesar, Hitch hikers guide. Classic Rock.
Food---I like to try almost anything new, I'll cook it too if you
I'd say Casablanca for movies, but I probably should not say that
here. Nonetheless it is true. Other movies--Inglorious bastards,
apocalypse now (NOT the redux). Cheesy, classic, modern, ---so
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The universe, space, time, light, heat, energy, my brain, other
people, chocolate, golden retrievers (though I don't have one
currently), both an entry and exit orifice, gravitation,
abstraction, the ability to count to six, and apparently a minor
amount of clutter. Oh--and smiles. ----and of course the ability to
"And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or
this. Just this ashtray... And this paddle game. - The ashtray and
the paddle game and that's all I need... And this remote control. -
The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's
all I need... And these matches. - The ashtray, and these matches,
and the remote control, and the paddle ball... And this lamp. - The
ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp,
and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too. I don't need
one other thing, not one... I need this. - The paddle game and the
chair, and the remote control, and the matches for sure. Well what
are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or
something! - And this. That's all I need."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My thoughts are varied and open to someone who would find them of
value. ? What would God do with a TARDIS? Do things happen for a
reason? Do they? I hope not-----a sterile clockwork universe
What fantasy name should I call you? ? Ilsa Lazlo? ? Bonnie Parker?
? Allie? ? Mrs. Allnut? ?Elizabeth Bennet? ? Annie Reed? Arwen or
Eowyn? Neytiri ? Maybe Princess Buttercup? Beatrix Kiddo? Or
perhaps most simply---"Lady"--LOL, I think the last one is best. ?
Do you know each reference?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no typical. It could be in with a kid, out with friends,
or working on something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Yes. Well, I can imagine having a conversation with you--- a
dialogue, which builds like a musical crescendo in its intensity
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you are someone who wants to develop that intensely deep and
satisfying bond with another person. Nothing less will do.
Or ---answer the following questions. What is the saddest moment in
movies--ever? How old is Dr. Who? and "Who said ""YOP!!!!"".
Message if you like, but smile either way.
And Damn it--does distance really matter???????? Damn life
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
