My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Thanks for venturing past the pics to the tedious essay portion of the profile. I'll try my best to entertain you. Remembering my English teacher's admonition, “show don't tell”, it's hard not to wince as I write this. About me- smart as in sharp critical thinker, lover of ideas, always considering the big picture and all that- but you wouldn't want me on your Trivial Pursuit team. That said, in recent years, thanks to a little meditation, I've also learned how not to think- what a relief. I'm a sweetie- really affectionate, self-aware, candid, animated, easy to talk to, a curious and interested listener. And bold- not afraid to say that the emperor's naked, stop a dogfight or straddle you on your lap and kiss you at a bar. Like the city, but happier in the woods or in the water. Left of liberal- thinking about the state of the world makes my stomach queasy, so enough about that. Well-travelled, but I won't bore you w a list of places I've visited.

[I'm really 53, and photos are recent , so no surprises.]

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Professional Lorax. Hanging out w friends. Doing city stuff. Leaving the city. Foolin' around, keeping fit, playing catch, gathering wood, making fires. Relaxing w dog on belly, listening to music. Getting worse at word games.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
dancing!, swimming a long distance underwater, dog sledding, planting little kisses on the side of my lover's neck, apologizing

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I see everyone's got inspirational quotes in their profiles so here's one I try to follow, from John Waters: 'If you go home with somebody, and they don't have books, don't fuck 'em.' Needless to say, I'm an avid reader. Love talking about books, articles, reading favorite passages out loud (to you?). Good Old Neon/DF Wallace was the most memorable story I've read in a long time. Always reading a back issue of The New Yorker- will never catch up. Music list- too daunting. I do love soulful stuff, classic rock and anything that makes me want to dance, have sex or cry. Food is so yummy. Taste, aside, I care about the quality of what I eat, how it's grown, how the animals were raised- I like to know that the chicken I'm eating led a happy, self-actualized little chicken life; but you have to be a bit fanatical (not judging!) to be utterly consistent in these regards, and I'm not. My memory's a sieve so the only good movies whose titles I remember: After the Wedding, The Other Son, Blue Valentine, A Royal Affair, End of Watch, restaurant scene in Take this Waltz, dance scene in 35 Shots of Rum.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're honest about your age.

you want to hold my hand in the ocean and keep me from getting scared and toppled by the giant waves. i really miss that.

seems pointless to include a list of all the obvious, lovely traits that everyone wants in a partner. but, my daughter insists that i say that most of all, i like men who are sensitive and caring.
