Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am disabling this account at this time. I have not been getting
what I expected out of it and fine tuning answers/tests does not
seem to be correcting it. If you are curious why, look at my 'You
Should Message Me..." to see
I had deleted this and basically tried to go dormant on this site
awhile back for a variety of reasons but mainly because I was
getting too many unsuitable matches and receiving angry replies
from others being matched. Recently I was contacted, even with this
profile empty by several that seemed to actually match and of some
interest to me.
I am retired bisexual male, not particularly active but interested
in meeting some others (men, women, or TS in some fashion) who just
want to talk about their experiences. I have travelled extensively
but, with retirement, find my circle of friends limited.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have been active in volunteer activity, have a small quiet
consulting business, and exploring new interests.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Don't know. Like 'good at' what I suspect and what is real is
--Even though I don't think I smile enough, I have been told I have
a welcoming smile and am handsome
--Intelligent, at least those that agree with me.
--Outdoor skills (camping, cooking, some canoeing)
You tell me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books. Too many to name (I read a lot and have a library numbering
in the thousands). I favor:
---Stranger in a StrangeLand, Hobbit, E.E. Smith novels, David
Weber series, Eric Flint's Ring of Fire series, etc. Lackey's
Companion world, McCaffey's Dragonworld,
---Sherlock Holmes is top but like Anne Perry's Monk, Alexander
McCall's First Lady Detecive Agency, etc.
--Great stoies introducing me to other cultures (gee! maybe that is
a clue to my interest in SciFi)
--History and Biographies. More lmited but includes
War of 1812 (which wasn't if you are British), science
Movies. Follows my book interest although my favorite movies tend
to not be adaptions or, at least, took the story to a different
level such as some of the Marvel adaptions.
--Meg Ryan/Julie Roberts/Sandra Bullock
--Folk songs, especially the ballads
--Light and classical jazz
--Many classics, especially with modern interpretations like the
--Mannheim Steamrollers (yeh, its elevator music but, at the time,
it strectched and refreshed.)
--Some blues and soul
--Great Bands dance music or modern variations.
-- Stir Fry cooking, especially when I reach into the frig and
build something based on what's there.
-- BBQ especially Memphis/Kansas City but some Texas
--Seafood, especially invertebrae but also Mahi/Mahi, Trout, and
Sashmi grade tuna
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Okay, this is almost a challenge--to be honest or outrageous.
--Air. It is verrrry difficult to without this!!
--warmth in Winter
--air conditioning (or at least air flow) in summer
--food--simple when I am busy by myself, gourmet shared
--Friends (probably second to air but a lot more enjoyable in the
presence of the other items
--Freedom (but not licentious, for the best freedom respects
--Books (a little selfish but it is the most portable entertaining
and aids learning)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My faith and how I should practice it
Computers and how they are programmed (I am only a little
nerd--well, truthfully, maybe a little more than that)
Loved ones and what I need to do to let them know
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cuddled with my lover or at least with them going to plays, movies,
or dancing (ballroom)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That wouldn't be private anymore.
However, I will throw this out. I try to do the tests in OKC
honestly but so many are ridiculous and have such bad questions
that I find myself projecting/anticipating what I want the outcome
to be. If you are interested in my test results, before you
seriously believe them, talk to me. Many of the questions true
answers are not listed in the test.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
(Hint, 'Im looking for' is a similar situation to a lot of the
tests. The true answers were not listed). So
- If you are involved or interested in alternate lifestyles rather
than just heterosexual. My current circle of friends are very
conservative and liimited in attitude.
- You have something you want to discuss about that lifestyle with
- You are not on a campaign to convert the world or me!!
- You are not yelling at me!!!!
- You are a mature adult (Note that some of the most mature adults
I have meet are in high school and some of the most childish are
between the ages of 18-99)
- You are not just trying to see how many friends you score. This
isn't Facebook or Twitter
- You have something to say that is either reasonable curiosity or
will interest me.
(Casual sex: misleading--I am not promiscuious but I am open. Part
of that is I only want to get intimate with those that I share
respect and trust and many friends will not be casual sex
I don't expect many contacts but I will ignore those that wasting
my time. I try to answer all but after my early experience (see top
comments) I reserve the right to ignore or skip over those that are
abusive or harmful.
Who are you looking for?
