Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Geezzzzzzz! I really can’t believe I am back on a goofy site! I
guess I have always been somewhat of a risk taker so here I go. I
am looking for an adventurous and honest man with a kind heart and
a good sense of humor. Humor has gotten me though some tough times,
so I really can’t get through this crazy life without it .I find
intelligence, humor and a special style to be sexy. Ha! I think we
may need to find “sexy” in a variety of attributes as we age and we
get a little less friendly to the eye. I am not originally from IL
and I have lived in a number of different cities in the U.S. I love
to travel and I have been fortunate to have visited a few
countries. I truly enjoy people and I have friends of all ages. I
like to dance and I love listening to live music.I especially love
the BLUES but I have a wide variety of bands I enjoy from Indie
type bands like Death Cab and Broken Bells to old Beatle music. I
am a pretty decent skier for I spent a ski season in Aspen,
Colorado after I graduated from college. I took up dancing and a
little sailing in my 50's so I am always ready to learn a new hobby
or sport. I refuse to act or dress like an old person and I would
like my guy to feel the same and have a desire to stay young
thinking in all aspects of life. I also like my quiet time and
enjoy cuddling and watching a good movie. I have a BA in Political
Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and I have
retained some of my liberal leanings. I am not religious but
spiritual. I would never hurt or lie to a friend, and especially my
man. I do expect reciprocal treatment. I have put the dates on my
pictures for it seems that too many people have very old photos.
And yes, I do experiment with the color of my hair but I doubt if I
will ever be blonde for too many women over 50 have bleached blond
hair. (LOL) I do not understand why anyone would have a profile
with no picture- unless you are trying to hide something. Please do
not contact me if you have no pictures. Please include a picture on
your profile without sunglasses. I want to see those great eyes.
Don't be shy. Let's have some fun and see if anything develops. The
meeting of two people is like the contact of two chemical
substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am trying to simplify my life and reduce my daily stress. I have
sold my large home and now I am going to rent a condo for awhile
until I decide where and how I want to live. We don't look like we
did when we were 20 lol but I am attempting to fight the aging
process with my weapons of exercise, healthy food, humor, fun and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am really good at having fun, especially when listening to live
music, dancing, skiing, hiking, playing on the water or learning a
new sport/activity. I love finding fun things to do in the city. I
love discovering new music and new fun venues. Have you heard of
Guitarra Azul, a great local Latin group or Kevin Purcell and the
Nightburners, a great local Blues group? I have been through some
challenging times but I think the bad times only make the good

The first things people really notice about me is that I don't act
like an old person. I do really try to eat healthy but every now
and then I will indulge in a hamburger or steak, but I rarely eat

The latest book that I read which I really loved combined history
and romance. It is called "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and
Sweet." I confess that I do not read as much as I would like for I
still work full time. I love intense movies and live plays. I love
the blues, rock music, old 50's music to dance to, swing music, big
band, Latin, classical and more. I love trying new foods,
especially Thai and Vietnamese. I am always trying to discover new
local live music and I have found a number of great local bands. I
have gone to the Crossroads Festivals in Chicago. I really need to
be outside as much as possible so I am always looking for new ways
to enjoy the outdoors which can be a challenge with the Midwest
weather. I can walk for miles and I love spending a day exploring
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.smiling dogs,2. sunny days, 3 haunting music, 4 new foods and new
cultures,5 turquoise oceans and rugged mountains and 6 exploring
new places/activities with a friend or partner.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I may be living five years from now?
On a typical Friday night I am
