My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am politically engaged, progressive, healthy (as far as I know), intellectual (but not stuffy about it), reasonably fit (walking 5+ miles a day, most days; working out with trainer 3x/week), funny and caring. I enjoy good conversation about a wide range of topics, especially but not limited to politics, society and the economy. I am an avid reader (and writer). I like travel, beach walks (and swims), massage, swing dancing, good jazz and a wide variety of exotic ethnic cuisines. I am a “Jewish athiest,” but not pedantic about it. Athiest, by the way, does not mean unethical—quite the contrary.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working; operating a nursing home for one (as the long-time caregiver for my chronically ill, disabled wife); looking for ways to make a difference and leave the world a better place; seeking to be part of something I care about that’s bigger than me (for most of my career, the labor movement was my cause—and still is); taking care of me (mentally, physically and emotionally) while I am taking care of another who can no longer reciprocate, through no fault of her own.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Filling out questionnaires like this one (not!). Listening. Writing. Caring (and caregiving—I’ve had a lot of experience with it!). Being patient. Being respectful and tolerant of others (except Republicans). Giving and receiving touch and affection. Solving problems—especially other people’s problems, which seem much easier to solve than my own. Conversation, including but not limited to political discussion and debate. Explaining things clearly, including complicated things. Being analytical. Being flexible when necessary. I’d like to think I’m a good swing dancer, but I’m not there yet.
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good friends, good books, loving touches, long walks on the beach, oxygen, and water/food—in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The same thing most people spend a lot of time thinking about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Swing dancing, listening to live jazz—or wishing that I was.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Cashews and good cheese are not safe in my presence.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are still reading this, after getting past the description of my personal situation. Let’s meet for coffee, lunch, or a drink after work soon—life is short!

Especially if you have a good sense of humor, a positive outlook, and a warm, engaging personality.

And/or: if you are looking for intelligent conversation, long walks in the woods (or better yet, on the beach!), swing dancing, and listening to live jazz.
