Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been living on my own for the past few years. I'm looking for
a best friend and hopefully love of my life who is kind, gentle,
respectful, considerate, and compassionate, and shares my passion
and respect for animals (my dog would really appreciate that) and
for the outdoors. I hike every day out of my back yard with my dog.
Maybe you'd like to come, too.
I am well educated and intelligent, and I enjoy discussing and
learning. I was a philosophy major in college, for what its worth.
I am honest, loyal, and attentive when you get to know me, but a
bit shy and cautious till then. I have a great sense of humor and I
love to laugh. I've had quite a bit of experience assisting on
craftsman jobs such as building and finishing houses and barn, and
I like doing that. I'm a darn good tile cutter.
I've always had a dream of having a small farm. I love outdoor
chores, and I can drive a tractor and run a loader - I can be
dangerous with a backhoe, though. I'm not very domesticated, but
with the right man, anything can happen.
I'm not looking for fancy cars, luxury homes, and all that jazz.
I'm looking for a nice guy. Spammers and liars, don't waste my
I don't have children of my own, but I've been involved with men
who do, and I really like that added dimension in a relationship,
although it's not necessary. If you have children, great!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a very good job with a company I've worked for most of my
life. The non-office part of my life has revolved around my dog and
my horse. Hiking and riding are my main activities. I am passionate
about music, film, and the arts. I am an avid fan of Leonard Cohen,
and am a member of his "Order of the Unified Heart," defined by Mr.
Cohen as "a loose association of creatures who find satisfaction in
being kind to one another." That pretty much sums up the way I try
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I know my way around a computer. I take the best care I can of my
pets. I ride a horse pretty decently (dressage is my discipline),
although I seriously want to become a better rider. I'm good at my
job. I'm great at loving my pets! And I try very hard to be a kind,
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Favorite books have been "Wuthering Heights" and "Look Homeward
Angel." These days I mainly read non-fiction.
I enjoy movies more than television shows, but the early days of
"House," "Masterpiece Mystery," "Dog Whisperer." Regarding movies,
I love the classics as well as modern movies, as long as they're
low on graphic violence: "The Heiress," "These Three," "The King's
Speech," "A Place in the Sun," "Muriel's Wedding"... Hitchcock. The
artistry of Montgomery Clift, Spencer Tracy, Ryan Gosling, Colin
Firth, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Johnny Depp. And I'm a great fan of
good documentaries: "Burden of Dreams," "Thin Blue Line," "Buy a
Ticket, Take the Ride"...
Music is first and foremost Leonard Cohen. He is my hero. I also
enjoy Billy Joel, Harry Nilsson, Harry Chapin, and Bob Seger. I was
brought up on folk and classical piano music and show music, so
that's in my blood as well. I play piano and guitar, although not
in a while. I love to sing, and I'm pretty good at
I don't eat red meat, love sushi, enjoy simple foods. But food is
mainly fuel that gives me the energy to get out and do my stuff.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) The animals in my life
2) A peaceful place to live and be
6) Being needed
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What the future could bring and how I can make it happen, and how
much better now and later would be with the right partner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing in front of a good movie or documentary after getting in
from the barn. It would be great to have someone to relax with or
go out to dinner.
