Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My on-line alias refers to my singing or whistling spontaneously.
It stems from a love of great music and lyrics - it's subtle rather
than reminiscent of Ethel Merman.
I'm working hard and thinking about what I will be doing in
retirement. I've enjoyed my career but look forward to having a
different balance of work and leisure activities. I'm feeling solid
emotionally, physically and financially...smarter, more confident
and less concerned about trivial matters.
It’s hard for me to describe myself in this forum…I’m much more
comfortable having a real conversation. I can adapt to most social
situations with a quick wit and the ability to make others feel at
ease. I’m a fiercely loyal friend – dependable, compassionate and
empathetic. As a romantic partner, I'm sensitive, sensuous,

I have no laundry list describing my ideal relationship. I am not
interested in finding a man with identical interests. Some common

TV - Bill Maher, Daily Show, Key and Peele, Masterpiece Mysteries,
Books - I would be lost without reading. I usually read fiction and
am drawn to authors and stories that make me pause, reflect, and
repeat key passages. I try to keep up with the weekly New Yorker
issues...but confess that sometimes I only take time to read the
Food - I'm happy to be in a city with so many choices...it's hard
to pick a favorite cuisine. I'm usually game for trying new foods
but medium spicy is my preference. I try to eat healthy
meals/snacks but not exclusively - I definitely have favorite
treats and comfort foods. Cooking is not one of my gifts.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
These are not really things I could never do without...rather
things I prefer having in my life - friends, laughter, dancing,
sunrises over the lake, finding a great bargain, my dog
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There are many private things I prefer to share after knowing
someone beyond this site. Though not terribly private, one thing I
will admit...I can be very silly when least expected.

too young or too old, you live within a reasonable distance, and

note - it doesn't necessarily mean I'm not interested. We're all on
this site to meet someone special - I'm open to possibilities and
evolved enough to know that relying only on first impressions can
lead to many missed opportunities.
