Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About Me: Still exploring life, very low threshold for joy, and
horrifyingly honest. I've had the big house and the snappy cars and
have come to the conclusion that small and simple is preferable to
big, shiny, and fast. Afterall, he who dies with the most toys is
nonetheless DEAD. Of course, I expect to maintain a comfortable
existence until that time (e.g. no camping or other unnecessary
suffering). Although I can be outgoing under some circumstances,
I’d rather spend most of my time with a few close friends.
Shockingly, I've learned that some people lie on the internet, so I
will tell you upfront that I’m looking for friendship as much as
romance at this point. I’m assuming that friendship and romance can
blend more smoothly at this stage of our lives, if we choose to
take that path. I aim to be in love one more time..
About You: You should be intelligent, emotionally articulate,
well-read, light hearted, utterly honest, and maintain an active
sense of wonder. Additional qualities worth extra points include;
proximity to London, susceptibility to life's everyday
aphrodisiacs, and a tolerance for fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recently retired (Jan 2012) and have decided to stretch perceptions
a little. I'm currently gutting and rebuilding my apartment in
London while exploring Europe fairly aggressively. Eventual goal is
to split time between Washington (to annoy the kiddo), London
(because it's fun), and Jerez (porque es alli).
I'm still not sure what I'll do when I grow up.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Smoothing out life's travails. Finding new types of irreducibility
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've no idea...an inability to synchronize with my surroundings,
Also...while on this subject...I've noticed a lot of profiles
include statements starting with something like "My friends would
describe as..." Am I the only one with friends that have never
tried to describe my personality while I'm in their presence? Do
you think my friends might be insensitive louts...or could it be
that some people have friends with ineffective sociological
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As a lifelong fan of SciFi I've never run into a book that was too
cheesy for my taste. I prefer movies that either require no thought
at all or leave me mystified. Both Rossini and Pink Floyd make me
cry. Food should be spiced to excess.
Update: How come nobody ever told me about Flann O'Brien? The Third
Policeman is the best thing I've read in years!
Further update: I'll really miss Christopher Hitchens.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Time, Feminine Influence, Peace, Splendor, Beauty, and Aspirations.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
See the 6 things I can't do without.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Roaming around looking for food. I'm usually home by 9 or 10 so as
not to be crushed by the "Party People".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've signed up on an internet dating site.
