Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a fairly easy-going guy looking for someone to enjoy the rest
of life with me. I enjoy a variety of activities, both mental and
physical, without being particularly good at any of them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a retired college professor. When not doing research or
professional stuff (which survives retirement), you'll find me at
the Y (doing aerobics
) or the dojang (Taekwondo
) or a coffee
shop (pounding on my tablet).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
good at procrastinating. I'm fairly good at
and I know a bit
about computers. Sudoku puzzles tremble at my name.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
They're too polite to say. Maybe that I have a good sense of humor.
Or maybe just that my sense of humor lacks an off switch.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like good sci-fi (and some fantasy) books. My favorite movie is
"The Magnificent Seven", but I enjoyed most of the "Star Trek"
movies and the first three "Star Wars" films. I've been known to
enjoy an occasional "chick flick" (preferably a comedy), but only
on a date. I'm very partial to doo-wop and 50's/60's rock. As far
as food goes, I go for pretty much anything that can be construed
to qualify as meat (just so long as I didn't see it fetching a
stick an hour ago).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
... food, exercise, artificial light (hard to read at night without
it), indoor plumbing (does Motel 6 count as "camping"?), sleep and
some more food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
... how to answer these questions (although the results may not
show it). I'm being nagged to expand my profile to 500 words. (Is
that the lower limit for attracting women?) Normally, college
professors have no trouble with being verbose (terse is what we
really don't get), but I'm generally not good at (nor accustomed
to) talking about myself. See the "most private thing" question
Hmm, still apparently not up to 500 words. Well, I also spend a lot
of time thinking about why space adventures always include "ray"
weapons (particularly the lasers in the "Star Wars" movies) that
cause noisy explosions in space. Does sound travel in a vacuum? Was
my high school physics teacher just blowing smoke?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
... eating dinner in a restaurant (most likely alone).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Outward appearances notwithstanding, I'm a significant introvert
(according to a test I once took).
I’m looking for
- Girls who like guys
- Ages 42–60
- Near me
- Who are single
- For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you're intelligent, physically fit (and intent on staying that
way), fun to be around, and have a sense of humor (preferably with
an appreciation of life's little ironies).
