Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Spontaneous romantic realist here ... hiking, cooking, traveling,
reading, gardening, swimming in rivers/lakes/oceans: I actually do
these things a lot! Long dinners with friends are a favorite event.
I love a 50/50 city/country life: in this way I am bi. Seeking
adventures with compelling, sincere people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in a second career as a university prof and loving it. This
took me away for a while, but I'm thrilled to be back in the area.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm very good at living well, at getting a lot out of my days and
nights. A lot means quality time doing things I care about with
people I care about. I'm also good at solitude, actually, and feel
it's vital ... but less of it could be nice, and I love sharing

My eyes and the fact that I'm always observing ... and people

So much! The Hours, The Elegance of The Hedgehog, Kavalier and
Klay, Sarah Vaughn, Light in the Piazza, Copland, JT and Carol King

French, Spanish, Asian, seafood, and soul food. Me likee red wine.
I don't say no to bourbon or gin, either.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oy vey: more choices. The forest, music, coffee, moonlight, rain,
the comfort of long and loving relationships with family and
friends. LOVE. In its many forms. Most of my friendships are of
very long duration: decades. Oh - and my cabin in the woods.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What will be good to eat next. Living more fully, sharing my life,
simplifying my life to make time for what matters most to me.
Escaping the mundane.
When America is going to grow up and deal with the facts instead of
our version of them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either digging in my garden or cooking with friends. Or going out

card-carrying member of the Glen Campbell fan club. I can't believe

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You really want to meet other passionate people. I hate playing
around online. It's not a hobby for me. There's too much to do out
there in the real world that's far more intriguing. Please don't
write if you don't care about your own health and if your close
