Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a 63 yr.old guy who is still somewhat boyish and active and
love to be spontaneous. Nonetheless I love reading, art films,
keeping up with the times in terms of politics, human interest
events, seeing plays, going to interesting museums, listening to
classical, folk and ethnic music in general, going to out-door
fairs and festivals. Love to spend time in nature and getting away
from the city sometimes -- flipping coins at every fork in the road
and seeing where we end up in 6-8 hours? I'm somewhat deptful and
would appreciate meeting someone who, like me, is patient, very
thoughtful, has a real sense of fair play, who is loyal and willing
to have meaningful communication so there's no possibility of
taking each other for granted. Seeking a monogamous long-term (m
word is OK) relationship with a woman who is good- natured and
whose kindness comes from the heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was born in 1952 AD. ...............And wouldn't mind living a
looong time since I love life!! So, I keep praying that the guy up
there is V--E--R--Y S--L--O--W at math!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a great listener, very resourceful, and am an over-all
cheerleader for my friends and family when they get discouraged.
I'm exceedingly loyal and reliable and will go the extra mile for
you when you need help or advice. I'm great at encouraging others
when they start to falter. (Geez, do I sound boring or what!?!) I'm
also really good at becoming excited by new or interesting
adventures - whether of the mind or activities in general - sort of
like a kid, I guess. I'm excellent at not making much money in the
stock market, but then again, I'm pretty good at not losing too
much either! Oh well

At a first glimpse people notice my blue eyes and then my smile.

Movie-wise: I tend towards foreign films because the plots often
mimic real life and the characters are dealing with real day-to-day
life situations in ways that American films often do not. Examples
of such films are: Tampopo, Wings of Desire, Pay It Forward, Seven
Pounds, I am Sam, Bread and Chocolate, El Norte, Swept Away, The
Life of Others, Cinema Paradiso, Love and Anarchy, Left Luggage,
The Round-up, Life is Beautiful, My Life as a Dog and its French
equivalent- Le Grande Chemin (the Grand Highway)- and most recently
three very moving films, Searching For Sugarman (an absolute
must-see), The Last Quartet and an East German film called Barbara,
a film not unlike the theme in Life of Others. If you've never
experienced a foreign movie then read some reviews or better yet
ask a friend who's seen them and ask them to include you - and,
after you get over the difficulty of reading sub-titles, I know
that you will find these type of movies extremely enriching!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My sense of compassion and caring. My ability to appreciate and to
soak up life. Nature and my love for animals. I love my curiosity
about people and ideas and life and ways of thinking about things
that I'm not quite familiar with. My friends. My sympathies for the
underdog. And probably a whole bunch of other stuff that will come
to me later.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Hmmm. Now what DO I think about? I know. Like the song in "Oliver"
- "I think I'd better think it out again."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am usually strolling the streets of Paris, listening intently to
flamenco music in a small bistro in Barcelona or Tossa del Mar,
walking and enjoying Trevi Fountain, singing along with the other
folks in an Irish pub in Cannemara or Galway, driving south on
Highway 1 along the California coastline, joining a drumming circle
in Kenya, playing along on the didgeree-do in Melbourne, and for
relaxation, sometimes I just go out with my friends for dinner or a
film, or a play or musical concert, or out folk-dancing, or else
browsing at a local half-price book store, followed by late-night
coffee somewhere - Portugal perhaps?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm hoping to meet someone whose kindness is heart-felt, whose
sensitivity is surrounded by compassion, and who has no guile and
allows herself to be available and open. I offer and promise the
same and more to you.
