I'm trying to develop a new circle of friends of all ages... been divorced for a while now and when you split up, some friends stay with you and some stay with your spouse so now I'm looking for people to spend time with and do things with.
I've been enjoying living alone... I think it suits my nature and I pretty much expect that I'll continue to live alone for the forseeable future.
Of course that doesn't mean I'm living a solitary life... there are a couple others in my life. I've embraced the poly approach to life but at the moment there is no primary relationship in my life. Do I need one at the moment? I'm not sure. I know I miss the day-to-day interaction of living with someone I love but I'm also not wanting to jump into a living-together relationship without being sure it's the right thing for all concerned.
Having said that, I'm nonetheless incredibly optimistic about the future... it seems like life is just all falling into place for me and even though I don't have a clue what's going to happen, I feel great about the way it's going.
I'm a contract technical writer (I write software manuals) and freelance webdesigner in the southeast corner of Wisconsin, halfway between Chicago and Milwaukee.
I'm a straight, chubby guy, 5'7", 200lbs, full head of light brown hair with full gray beard and mustache.
I'm a light drinker. I gave up other intoxicants years ago as well but I'm not judgmental about whether others use 'em responsibly.
I am sharp, funny, and skeptical
I love going out for coffee and conversation in the late evening. I'll take an occasional adult beverage, too, but my limit's usually one or two.
(B) Not real big on movies... I tend to forget they're out there, especially if I don't get dragged out to see one now and again.
(C) There's very little music I don't like... I like just about everything. Anything including blues, rap,, punk,, trance, classical, jazz, country... you name it.
(D) I love to eat, no getting around that, but I'm particularly fond of ethnic foods: Mexican, Thai, Italian. One of my all-time favorites is a double sausage with hot peppers from Jay's on the northwest side of Chicago... anytime I get in that area I make it a point to pick up a couple to take home. I'm also partial to the big, honkin' burritos from El Famous Burrito.
