Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Socially, I tend to be unassuming except in a few situations like
job interviews and dating profiles. Woman companions find me warm,
calming, fun, chivalrous and kind. I range between being quite
verbal and, with intimates, quiet at times. I can be quite serious,
am psychologically minded and can enjoy a solitary hike. I have it
on good authority that I have "sacred, deep, elements of the
masculine, held by few.”, an artistic nature and emotional
intelligence. The important things I would ideally like to get out
of life are a monogamous love life, an intellectual, spiritual and
inner life, opportunities for benevolence and fun. I am not very
materialistic or much concerned with social status. But its fine if
you feel differently. Politically, I'm a social democrat who
admires the political setup in Scandinavia. At the same time I'm
pragmatic and admire people like Obama and Elizabeth Warren who try
to do what's attainable. I'm an active member of Amnesty
International. I gave Obama $100 early and then another $200, and
volunteered for him. I am very into my friends and the outdoors. I
love good fiction. In recent years I've read less of it then I once
did and expect to again. I'm fond of children; We can discuss my
social anxieties and other shortcomings, failures, insecurities …

Psychologically and physically youthful 67. The last three summers
of my teenage years I hitchhiked and drove around the West and I've
gotten into the outdoors a good deal since. I graduated from St.
John's College in Maryland, which has a "great books" curriculum.
In 1968 I joined the Poor Peoples Campaign and was jailed for two
weeks. I have been peripherally active politically ever since -
Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee, Democratic Party and
Amnesty International. Several years ago I organized a family
"cousins' dinner" and we had another reunion the following year.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am attracted to all sorts women who are warm, decent and
reasonably intelligent and attractive . In terms of occupation, I
often find myself drawn to teachers, social workers and editors.
Altruistic endeavors, Buddhism/Taoism, and time in therapy are all
pluses. (Women with IQ's over 150 (10 points greater than mine) who
are looking for an intellectual peer, or who unceremoniously ditch
lovers or friends when a relationship is over or whose photos are
not reasonably recent are discouraged from writing.) I have a
friends first approach to dating.
In addition, in the past two years two good friends have moved
away. It would be nice if I could "replace" one or more with women
