Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm just a guy trying to do his best, making it up as I go.
Some random glimpses:I love books, even their fragrance. A
voracious reader, I think e-readers, while not of Old Scratch, are
certainly demonic. You read a book, feel the texture of the page,
close it gently, and savor what you've just read. An e-reader? It's
a machine. You turn it off. How cold is that? Having ranted, if you
have an e-reader, this is not intended as a critique of you. Hell,
I don't have a cellphone, either. I'm a Luddite...
Love verbal foreplay (and all other kinds). (I also like
parentheses). I like macaroni and cheese. Gromit over Wallace. The
country of Paraguay fascinates me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've developed a To Do For Her List over the years: #17 on that
list is "While a peck on the lips is always good, you are
guaranteed at least one 10 second PAY ATTENTION! kiss per day.
There may be more than that (because where does one good 10 second
kiss lead but to another?), but there will always be at least one.

Probably the white hair. I've grown used to it - at least I still

The Aladdin for live music; Glendoveer for golf; Powell's for

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Books (and no, a Kindle is not a book)
2. Music (Richard Thompson leads the list)
4. Volleyball - sand doubles mostly
5. Some of this, some of that
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Remember the old Rifleman series and that weird gun? The boy,
Marcus McCain - I wondered how he turned out. I mean, he saw his
father beaten up weekly or being shot or killing men - that was his
norm. Did Marcus become a serial killer? I think he moved to
Mayberry and morphed into Otis Campbell - the time frame almost
fits. Maybe write a TV show that melds Northfork/Mayberry, dark,
brooding atmosphere etc, but which has the trappings of one of the
current reality shows (not that I watch them). Introduce modern-day
elements such as zombies and werefolk and Narcos and
proto-Kardashians - oh, my! Off the top of my head: A Narco outfit
moves into town and Andy/Barney can't stop it. Marcus/Otis steps up
and saves the town with some help from the local werefolk...the
story told via a Narco corridos soundtrack. Where's that Muse? ”.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I play sand volleyball during the summer at the clothing optional
beach at Sauvie Island...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you want (not need) a man that, at the end of the day, will lie/sit
with you, stroke your hair, caress your cheek, look you in the eye
(not at the ceiling or, god forbid! the TV), and who listens,
really listens to you and hears what you have to say without
passing judgment or trying to solve your problems for you? Then,
when you're done talking, says "Good job. I'd go to the wall for
you. In a heartbeat." I can't tell a joke to save my life, but I
might make you laugh.
