Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Spring has arrived! Is this time to act? Is this time to find your
love? I'll put it right up front, a relationship is a priority for
me! I'll do what is necessary to make it work with the right woman.
In the Beltane celebration in ancient Scotland, all of the people
feted the coming of summer with revelry and some lusty behavior.
I'm ready for that! How about you?
I have had a few dates recently which prompt me to say this up
front. As interested as I am in an attractive woman, I want an
overall partner. Physical attraction is important. However, I want
a friendship first.
The woman who attracts my company will be around my age, maybe a
little younger (not a lot). She will have a mind of her own and
still enjoy expressing her feminine nature with her man. She will
have warming eye contact and a soft touch at important times. I am
tactile and I hope you are too.
Strenuous physical activity isn't possible for me anymore. Staying
in shape and healthy is and a companion helps to keep them in the
I own a small house at the edge Philadelphia's Wissahickon Valley
of Fairmount Park. It's quiet even though I am 1/8 mile from a
major route to center city. When I said I'd do what is necessary to
make a partnership work, there is an exception. I am not ready to
move. I've given a lot of thought to the idea.
My ideal partner will live with me or close to me so that visiting
is easy, not a trek. I have accepted that I am staying where I am.
Philadelphia is a wonderful city. And we can see the world
together! If you don't live in Philadelphia already, perhaps it is
a place you would love to be. It has much to offer.
My fashion is L.L. Bean casual. I can wear a tie and I own a
tuxedo. In warm weather, I prefer shorts.
Food? I like smaller, family operated restaurants. I am a practical
cook: quick and tasty. You get lots of points if you also enjoy
modest cooking. While I can be educated in alternative diets, mine
is straight forward. On my own, chicken and fish are the featured
My community has always been important to me. Making Germantown a
better place for living and shopping is important to me. I tutor
local 8th grade students in English and Communication.
Traveling in the USA and abroad with my partner provided is a must
if we can plan our expenses. We would need to have similar styles
and desires. I prefer to bring home memories, gifts and items which
preserve the voyage as opposed to lavish hotels, etc.
I spent a week in Paris in October, 2014 to celebrate a reunion of
a year abroad class in 1966-67. Sixteen of us, some with spouses,
met for a series of events and dinners together.I want to return to
France and the use of my French. Parlez vous francais un peu? If
you speak Spanish, you can be my guide to other parts of the
I am a Unitarian Universalist. I hope my partner will appreciate
the Unitarian concept of faith. No dogma. Its values all living
things equally. Its Social Activism activities are important to me.
Sharing them with my partner would be an asset to the

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My home requires some regular attention and I am handy at small
repairs. My interest in video and audio media will be in the mix. I
speak French modestly and like to practice it when I can.
I am active in my local community by helping to improve our
commercial and living environment. I record the Sunday service at
my Unitarian Universalist community. I tutor 8th grade students in
literacy at a nearby school.
I am a casual gardener. I seem to be able to keep plants alive, but
I am not very knowledgeable nor an artist.
Local concerts, plays and other entertainment activities are on my
And don't forget my grandchildren! Four of them: 7, 5 1/2, and
identical twin girls almost 10 mos. old!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting things done for issues that I believe in or solving
problems that need to be dealt with.

I am ready to help out if I can......

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I enjoy some main stream movies, but mostly arts movies. I enjoy
small theater performances, and an occasional marquee event.
I follow the Inquirer daily and I am an avid NPR listener. My taste
in music spans the gamut.... blues, folk,rock, some jazz,
classical, world music.....not rap in most cases.
I enjoy ethnic foods as well as a good diner. As mentioned earlier,
I prefer smaller restaurants over lavish ones.
Network TV is low on my interest list--- Phillies baseball is a
A good game of Scrabble with my partner is a lot of fun.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- My grandchildren.
- My relationship with my adult children.
- Companionship with a loving partner.
- My relationship with my Unitarian congregation.
- The ability to get out and about. I now know what it means to be
home-bound with an injury. I smashed a heel bone in 2009. The
recovery took two years and I will always have some residual
consequences. I ride a bike locally. Would enjoy recreational
biking with a partner.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The wonder of male and female. The many joys we can bring to each
other: our bodies, our minds and a joyous spirit. And how we need
to find ways to accommodate to each other's
needs/wants/talents/differences. Life together is better than life
The political future of our country and the world. Can we have
peace? World climate change is also a concern. I wish the doubts
about it would disappear! I focus more on local issues in my
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing. I often step out on Saturday afternoons for a matinee. I
am not very enthusiastic about week night or late night
entertainment any more. Sundays I try to attend my Unitarian
congregation for the music, thought and company. Sunday afternoon
is wide open.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't feel complete without a lover. Life is great. There are
other private things about me. That's what I am willing to admit.

You are actively seeking a mate and are ready for a long term,
committed relationship. You live in the general Philadelphia area
or are willing to relocate here.

started! I will travel to meet you!
