Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a healthy, financially secure man who would like to meet
someone to have fun with. I'm pretty attached to my pets. I care
about and follow current events. I own a small business. I like
spending my time outdoors and like to read to relax. Most people
who know me think I'm funny and a good guy. I can be a bit of a boy
scout. I'm interested to meet someone who is an animal lover and
My friend read my profile and said I seemed like a robot. I am
really uncomfortable with self promotion. She cares for me and is
really pushing me to reveal more about myself. She suggested I sort
of "free associate" random thoughts on what shaped me and who I am.
This makes me feel really uncomfortable but I really want to meet
someone nice, here goes:
I moved every 1 to 1 1/2 years as a kid... it's prob why I keep
just a few close (quality) friends. I was the minority in first
mostly Hispanic neighborhoods and then mostly black neighbor hoods
until I was 11... Prob why I have little tolerance for racists... I
had one consistent friend for the first 15 years of my life, her
name was Dodie (was Dobie, as in Dobie Gillis, until we figured out
she was a girl). Prob why I am so connected to my animals... Hurt
so much when she died I had to miss school... I've only called in
sick to work once in over 35 years (when my dog died) ...
that dog changed the trajectory of my life, I own and operate an
animal related business... I earned my way thru college, working
full time or more... started my first part time business at age 27,
I did not know how to only have one job after I finished
school...besides losing my dogs, I have had my heart broken two
times, one for all the right reasons, one for all the
wrong...whenever I go grocery shopping, I grab 2-3 shopping carts
to bring back... I don't give money to homeless people-I buy them
lunch... I go to McDonald's about once a week to buy gift cards ( I
know it's not the healthiest food but no one should go hungry)...I
employ developmentally disabled adults-mostly autistic...gave my ex
the house, the cars and every other "thing" cause they were more
important to her..kept the dogs cause they were more important to
me... I struggled thru the Torah(Old Testament Bible) as a pre-teen
I think i was to young to understand it.... i was an Atheist at 10,
now I'm agnostic... I was really interested in ethics in my early
20's ... was influenced by Aristotle (the golden mean) and Buddha
(the middle path) but I don't practice a religion ... I think it's
important we maintain a vibrant public school system and try to
make college more affordable....I understand that wanting leads to
suffering so I don't want much in the way of material things... I
am ashamed that I care so much about my partner's appearance...when
i love someone I remind them all the time... I am the luckiest
person I know (this is not a platitude, I have proof).... my
business partner is my closest friend... She is the most ethical
person I know, also the toughest..I think I have embarrassed my
self enough here. ... the greeter in my business was really a
junkyard dog before we found each other (current best friend)...
I'm a liberal but really old fashioned....One of the "vacations" I
take is flying to Chicago (where I'm from) and driving to Wisconsin
to get out the vote in swing districts..
I thought if fair to mention bad things:
I can get cranky if I'm hungry, which is every 3 hours or so unless
I'm fed...I don't naturally have an open mind - I have to work at
it.... I really hate dancing (I will if I have to)....I have no
ability to sleep in, even on vacation....I have to rely on my staff
to figure out technology...I'm stubborn...I'm a really bad
If this did not scare you off already, I'm actually pretty fun to
hang with if you like a dry sense of humor.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a small business that keeps me busy but also allows some
flexibility for fun and travel. Thinking about starting another
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a way with dogs. Pretty good at massage too. Once I know
your body I can zero in on the knots and make them disappear. If I
get in the zone, I can follow those little knots that seem to move
around like air in a water balloon and take them out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My favorite book is 1984 and I read it every 10 years, next will be
2024. I'm reading "the God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins.I attended
a lecture and found the author interesting. I'm also reading
"Meditations of a Buddhist Skeptic" it's allowing me to open my
mind about spirituality. I DVR the Colbert Report and like to watch
the news. I have a large music collection containing all types. Not
a huge fan of hip hop or rap but I do have some in my collection.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

places or experiences. I included my animals although they are not
Number one is easy, my dogs and cats. everything else I can
actually live with out.
2. my phone because it runs a bunch of fun gadgets.
3. My Nook
5. My overnight bag for quick trips.
6. My gym equipment.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm pretty interested in politics. I have also been really trying
to get a grasp on spirituality. I just have a little trouble
believing things without evidence. So, I'm talking to smart people
who happen to be believers. Also reading lots of books on Buddhism.
I tried to solve these mysteries as a teen and in my early 20's.
Gonna see if I can do better after all these years.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Now that I'm single I would say reading. Now and then I'll meet
friends for drinks or dinner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have never figured out how to back up a trailer. I have a horse
trailer and a camping trailer. I've had to rely on my ex to back
the horse trailer and her dad to back up the camper. I promise to
practice if we're going to riding or go sissy camping. (or you can
I've filtered the search function here to "boys who like girls" or
whatever it says. I just wanted to see how other guys were doing
this. I must remember to bring a photographer to yoga and the
petting zoo. :P
