Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The fast and hard facts:
I'm a teacher.
I have four adult children.
I've been divorced for many years.
I do go to the gym, but am built more like Sylvester the Puttycat
than Sylvester Stallone.
I want a long-term, intellectual, emotional, and physically
I grew up a country mouse but am happily a city mouse now: I can
change the clutch on a Ford F150 but I'd rather watch live theatre
or go to a poetry reading.
I don't spend twelve hours on Sunday watching sports on television
but if you want to go to a sporting event, I'll be happy to eat
nachos and watch the half-naked, painted man, lose his mind when
the other team gets the puck into the basket and touchdowns a

Baggage: got a full set plus my carry-on bag, but I'm aware that

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching, learning, exploring and growing (more emotionally and
intellectually than physically, I hope).
I leave the door open to possibility for the future. I do have
goals and plans but if there's an opportunity that comes a knockin,
I can improvise and adapt as well.
The only thing I will not entertain, is a future of negativity and
whining about how unfair life is; got that merit badge, thank you
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making you your favorite meal, sharing it by candle lite with
interesting and entertaining conversation and then finding the
braker-box in the basement (hence the candle-lit dinner earlier).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm open, friendly and Irish.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many books to list. Tim O'Brien, David Sedaris, Pam Grout to
name some favorites.
I'm a guy so I like movies with cars that chase guns and explode,
but I also enjoy a well written screenplay and compelling
I love live theater but I don't go to enough plays.
I'm an 80's kid when it comes to my playlist but I'm also open to
anything that doesn't have "a little twang in it."
I was raised by a chef, so please go put on some music and open
that bottle of merlot, I'll be handling the cooking this evening.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) 78.09% nitrogen
2) 20.95% oxygen
3) 0.93% argon
4) 0.039% carbon dioxide
5) 1.0% water vapor
6) and dark chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stories I've read.
Stories I've told.
Stories I've written.
Stories I want to write.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Fighting ninja-pirates (one at a time obviously).
Saving orphans from burning buildings.
Curing terminal diseases by staring into the eyes of the sick with
a sincerity no microbe or virus can withstand.
Brushing my teeth,
bringing about world peace,
