First, PLEASE BE UNDER the age of 57. 47 is fine, even 37 if you
can still write in cursive and voted in the 1990s +/-. I prefer to
spend time with people who are young enough to still jump out of
planes, if and when they feel so inclined. I don't and never have
clicked with older men.
I HAVE ISSUES:
It'd be nice if you're presentable and don't look like you just
rolled off a potato truck. My outward preferences are never what
people expect of me - I love hipsters, medical geeks,
librarian-chic and hair-band leftovers. It's all good, so long as
you wear it well and with pride. Taking the time to actually post a
photo without a baseball cap and an undershirt IS worth the effort
- really! Wearing coveralls, space shoes, bizarre broken eyeglasses
and lacking teeth are turnoffs, even if you think they're hot. That
strip of hair that you're growing doesn't hide the fact that you
might be BALD, so just shave it all and get on with the 21st
century. If you own a green polyester suit, are vitamin D deficient
from lack of sunlight, drool and/or drag your knuckles, you're
pretty much disqualified.
PLUSES ARE EASY:
There's nothing better than a genuine, humble and happy personality
with some edgy wit and common sense intact. Just say HI and type
some more. I'm conscientious to the point where I'll respond to
those who are articulate and non-hostile. Actions speak louder than
words, so do both.
Giving out my phone number is something of an invasion of privacy.
I generally don't answer it, anyway.
Extra-speedy replies go to those who don't submit form letters
pontificating what a nice, laid-back guy you are who enjoys walks
on the beach in the rain at sunset after their busy day
moonlighting as a neurosurgeon with a yacht. Unless, of course, you
