My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Having been divorced for five years, I'm going through the process of dating, and building a great network of friends! Presumably, one will become more than just a friend.

I'm on the Paleo diet, having seen concrete improvements in my health since adopting that diet in March, 2011. I'm also a fan of Dr. Joseph Mercola (mercola.com) and Mike Adams, (naturalnews.com). In January, 2014, I attended a class sponsored by a major distributor of health products and supplements. They were demonstrating a body composition monitor that indicated your "metabolic age." Mine was 46. BTW, for you ladies who like to read between the lines, I need to point out that it is not necessary for you to be on the Paleo diet. If you've been on the planet for roughly as long as I have, you're healthy, and your waist line is less than 34 inches, you don't need ME to tell you how to eat!

I'm looking for someone who can stay out of credit card debt, handle her finances well, keep her weight under control, and exercise now and then. Health is pretty important because, for the woman I'm with, I want to have a very long, disease-free, and passion-filled life. I expect to be there for her in every way, not being forced to wind down my life due to a lack of exercise or sunshine, or due to eating crap food all the time.

Politically, I'm a Libertarian, a fiscal conservative and supporter of the Tea Party, the Fair Tax, and animal rights. I am willing to date women having, collectively, a wide variety of interests, social and financial backgrounds, and educational levels. Certainly no college degree is necessary, though a modicum of intelligence is, and it really helps if she loves her country and is somewhat aware of what is happening in it at the present time.

Interests/Favorites: Cycling, hiking, camping, taking long walks on the beach, alternative medicine, the Paleo diet, Macintosh computing, the wonders of the iPhone, bookstores, organic gardening, self-sufficiency, and making the woman I'm with the happiest person in the zip code.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Serving as the organizer for two Meetup groups (Macintosh and Paleo diet), working as a free-lance proofreader, Paleo consultant, and librarian.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Maintaining very good health, staying off medication, researching alternative healing methods, such as pranic healing, earthing, metaphysics, and the Paleo lifestyle; being open-minded; being patient ... waiting for the one that really matters.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, I was voted "Most Intellectual" at the agency I worked at a few years ago. I'll let you decide whether that's good or bad!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books:
Walden, Fahrenheit 451, Life After Life, Illusions, Kinship with All Life, The Paleo Solution, books on computing and health

movies:
The Gods Must Be Crazy, Airplane, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, The Future of Food, The World According to Monsanto, Super Size Me, Food Matters, Cereal Killers. (I tend to like movies with real meaning, or the potential to improve the world, as much as those watched just for entertainment.) Check this one out. "The Grounded"

music:
classic rock, some jazz, including Dave Brubeck, Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto Number 1, Dvorak's New World Symphony, Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto and 1812 Overture, Beethoven's 9th, Handel's Messiah and Water Music Suite, Jethro Tull. Newest addition to my iPhone: Krista Branch’s "I Am America."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. a happy (extended) family life
2. the ability to help others
3. books (now if I only had time to read them)
4. my Macintosh computers, iPhone and iPad
5. Sweet Tomatoes and Chipotle
6. and for now, OkCupid; Thank you guys, for creating a great dating site (even though you come up with strange questions now and then).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
where this planet is headed, and how I can keep it from going there.

Also wonder how a person can reach the age of 58 and not know the difference between "you're" and "your." Must be this marvelous government school system we have!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a Meetup event, on a date, or working; not into the bar scene, and watch only a little TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I cannot wait to buy a car like the Aptera. (If Apple made a car, it would be the Aptera.) But the Aptera never made it past the prototype stage, and Obama never gave them $90,000,000. (I guess they were Republicans.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you've managed to read this far and would like to get together. If you don't live near Orlando, let's do a FaceTime chat or Skype. (I'm currently willing to drive within the Clearwater/Daytona Beach/Melbourne triangle.)

If you have, at some point, been introduced to punctuation, and believe that its use will not lead to hives, receiving fewer kisses than Sheldon's girlfriend, or an audit from the IRS, then give yourself two points!

You might not ought to message me if ...

(1) you think Barack Obama is Mt. Rushmore material.
(2) you can easily cover all your hair with a shower cap.
(3) you have stapled jewelry onto your nose, lips, or eyebrows. I don't date Borg women, though, strangely enough, I could probably be talked into having coffee with Seven of Nine.
(4) your three favorite restaurants are Burger King, IHOP, and Baskin Robbins.
(5) you're confused as to why NASA has not yet completed a manned mission to the sun, since they could easily avoid the excessive heat by going at night.

BTW, even if I don't think we're a good match, if you send me a thoughtful e-mail, you will get one in return.
