Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am very secure in who I am and where I am in life. I’m a happy
person who loves to laugh, and do so frequently and heartily. Being
too serious is not healthy, nor is it much fun. I have a good sense
of humor and a quick wit, but not at the expense of others. The
glass is always 1/2 full to me
Family and friends are the top priority of my life. (Wow ... I
sound like a new puppy).
Spending time with the person I care for, and who cares for me, is
a top priority as well. Matters not, what we are doing, or where we
are going. The time together is simply what is important and
Showing mutual affection and respect is very important to me as
well. People who say it is to them as well, yet, act to the
contrary, are tremendously disappointing to me. In my view, telling
and showing each other they are special, respected and appreciated
is what makes a truly loving relationship. I believe that open,
honest and SINCERE communication is the basis for a strong
friendship. A strong and sincere friendship is the basis for any
possible relationship. Without that friendship, a LASTING
relationship is not likely. Please don't tell me you are my friend,
then prove yourself to the contrary.
I am Honest, Sincere, and Trustworthy. (Back to that puppy thing
again ... LOL. By the way, I am house broken too.)
My integrity is simply not for sale at any price. You can judge for
yourself. Let's chat on the phone and/or meet for coffee.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My work as a CASA , (Court Appointed Special Advocate for abused
and abandoned children), is rewarding. Although sometimes the
details of a case will just tear my heart out, it is sooo worth it
for the kids. If the details break MY heart, I can only imagine
what having lived the details does to the child's heart. It shows
on their faces, no matter their age.
I was in the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) business. The patients
I dealt with were primarily seniors. Therefore, I was blessed with
the privilege of being with them on a frequent basis. Their
knowledge, wisdom and courage was/is inspiring. I am spellbound by
their stories. When I rest my head on my pillow, there was/is a
special feeling I can't explain. Knowing I made a minor difference
in the quality of a seniors life that day, truly matters to me. It
is the most rewarding accomplishment of my life. I
I can only hope that one day, (That day is now here), someone will
care about how my day went as much as I cared about how someone
else's day went that day. In short; my interaction with another
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Anything I set my mind to. Pleae know that I am NOT a dancer, hiker
or bowler. DO NOT want to simply sit around and drink and smoke,
although YOU might. That is simply offensive and discounting to me.
If those things are your core values, and a big deal to you,
perhaps it would be best to just pass on me. (However, if you do,
you might be passing on a true, honest and loyal friend ... or who
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My voice. I am happy, easy to be around, genuine and sincere. I
truly place the feelings and well being of others before my own.
ALL others sincerely matter to me. I am a blessed man.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Bible. I am not a religious fanatic, however, I am a very
strong man of faith. My belief in Him and desire to please Him is
true, solid and sincere. I truly believe He has a plan for me. It
is not up to me to attempt to figure it out. It is however, my job
to hold myself to a standard that I think would please him.
Moreover, I believe my happiest days are yet to come.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My faith in the Lord and the knowledge of His love for me for a
happy, loving, safe, sincere and dedicated life for the future. It
is His call, NOT mine.
My family means more to me than life itself.
True and sincere friends.
Continued ability to forgive
Being with others
Food, shelter and transportation
OK ... OK .. .OK, that is more than six. I could go on and on.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Will God implement His plan for me? I truly believe my happiest
days are ahead with the right someone in my life. NOT someone who
will cut and run at the slightest indication of a possible issue.
Is there really someone who can HONESTLY talk through an issue? It
is NOT a guy thing ... it is a human and relationship thing.
Beginning to think ... NOT.
Someone with whom we can fulfill our mutual inward and outward
needs; more importantly, the mutual inward needs, and someone who's
needs I can fulfill in the same way. NOT someone who's priority in
life is to sit and drink and smoke, then find fault with, and
condemn everyone else. (How shallow can one be?)
I wonder if I will ever find that person? To get real, I am a 66
year old man. My heart and desire to be a true friend and more is
Hopefully, I have learned from both the good and not so good events
of the past. There is no benefit in rehashing them. I refuse to be
a hostage of the past.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On a date or out with other friends. Bowling, surprising to me, has
become a fun and social event.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
While shaving this morning, I was thinking about what events I
would change in my life, good and not so good, if I could. The more
I thought, the more I realized there is nothing I would change,
except for a recent foolish romantic mistake. Every event has
helped shape the person I am today, including recent events, which,
by the way, I am pleased with.
Granted, not all events were grand and glorious. Are they ever?
They were events none the less, and I hope I learned something from
each and every one of them. With that; I am quite pleased.
I simply want to meet someone who knows what it means to be a
friend and to do things with. Perhaps catch a movie, visit on the
phone and enjoy a bite to eat with, etc. If it grows from a
friendship to a relationship, that would be great. I am not looking
to, "ride off into the sunset together", (although ... I must admit
that I am guilty of being quick to advance things after a date or
I live alone, an am just fine with that. But ... I too, get lonely
being by myself ALL the time. However, I prefer it vs. being with
the wrong person, and will not give up on the the idea that there
is someone out there who values honesty, loyalty, commitment and
integrity as much as I do.
I am NOT seeking a bikini model 10, 20 or 30 years younger than me.
NOT AT ALL!!! Who we are beats within the center of our chest. THAT
is what matters to me!! Age is nothing more than a number.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am NOT interested in self serving, egotistical, closed minded
players who THINK they are so much better and smarter than they
really are. If YOUR need is to always be right, and you can't
really communicate, don't bother to contact me. (We have ALL been
there ... done that.) At this age, I am quite sick of it.
If you are truly a kind and genuine person and not just playing
games, please contact me. If you are not sincere, please don't
There are many strange people on the internet, both men and women.
We have ALL met them!!! Please know that I am NOT one of them. I am
Not a predator.
I do prefer visiting on the phone vs. endless, winks, flirts and
messages. I assure you there would NOT be inappropriate language or
topics. If you agree it is easier to get to know someone during a
live conversation, please let me know.
