My self-summary
I am retired and taught a few college courses part time. But recently gave that up and now am officially retired.

I have been divorced for three years. During that time I was not interested in being with anyone and took up things that I loved to do, such as dancing and going to plays. However, I have realized that they are not as fulfilling without someone to share them with..

With respect to me, I have had several successful careers and have a passion for giving back to the community. I am a people person who can make coversation, as well as be a great listener. Although I am a worldy man, I can be sensitiive, caring and compassionate. I am also someone who embraces diversity and has a high regard for honesty and integrity. Also, have been told numerous times that I have a very nice voice too.

Whe it comes to my interest, again I love to dance, going to community plays, movies, playing cards, and ping pong. I love stimulating conversations and am flexible enough to do some things I may not have that much interest in, but is important to my companion.
Oh, by the way, the women in the photo displays are photos taken at birthday celebrations. One is with a dear old friend, and the other was taken with my wife's buddy at birthday breakfast celebration.

When it comes to music I love the oldies, R&B, anything by Motown ( especially Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and the Temptations), jazz vocals, soft rock, blues, salsa & zydeco music, and a little country western.

To sum it up, I am just an average looking guy who values integrity, tries to be a gentlemen at all times, and is not needy or greedy. What I am seeking is companionship, and a relationship with that woman who seeking a decent guy and is asking herself where all the good men are ?

If we have any interests in common send me a message. What do you have to lose? The worst you can do is to make a friend.
What I’m doing with my life
Retired, and developing initiatives where I can use my experience and contacts to give opportunities to others who have been less fortunate.

Dancing, and working out are my favorite past times. .
I’m really good at
Dancing, helping others, solving problems in crisis, providing good
conversation, exhibiting compassion, ability to be non-judgmental,
listening, motivating people, thinking outside the box, making a
woman feel good about herself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really don't know. I guess personable and, self assured.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Life of PII. But with respect to books I don't have a favorite. Because of my
professions, most of my reading I did was required reading to keep
abreast of the latest changes or news media events that impacted
the areas I worked in. I however just completed reading a book on
borderline personality disorders and several on terrorism.

I like Oldie but Goodies, Jazz, R&B, Light Rock, and some
Country & Western and Blues. Love the Do Wops and the Motown
Sound with Smokey Robinson, the Temptations and Marvin Gaye. Like
soft music, with lyrics I can understand. That's why I can't deal
with rap and music which sounds like just a lot of noise.

I don't go to the movies very much because I don't have anyone to
go with. However, I love the movies. I enjoy comedies, action,
drama, suspense, science fiction and westerns. I even enjoy some
chick flicks (ha ha). I love the old Sean Connery James Bond
movies, as well as old the Clint Eastwood westerns. My favorite
actors are Al Pacino, Denzel Washington, Robert DeNiro, and Sean
Connery. My favorite actress is Meryl Streep

I also like to go to concerts and community house plays. Like
intimate jazz clubs and at times, like to go to comedy clubs.
The six things I could never do without
My Faith
Interacton with people
Good conversation
Yellow cake with chocolate icing
On a typical Friday night I am
While i like to dance and go out, on most Fridays I am probably at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I am still learning . That despite all of the bad things in
the world that I still see the good in people and embrace

If there are interests which are comparable with yours contact

you make a friend!
