Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My apologies, my profile remains under construction. I was
sidetracked by these fascinating questions on my first encounter
with this site and never paid proper attention to it because of my
real life busy state of affairs. I thought that I would see to all
of this quite soon , but wanted to write something accurate and
heartfelt when I had more time.
Now I've discovered that most ladies (not just men !!) barely pay
attention to the written portions of this quiz ! I could write
Shakespeare here and no one would notice !!
Also, my snoopy pic is one of my favs ! I loved that biplane
It belongs to my past and loved life and pursuing it in the open
air !! On my computer , it enlarges, but I do see the point about
my sunglasses. On the other hand, being from Seattle for 25 years,
my eyes no longer try to struggle against the "day star" in the
sky. Therefore, all of my fun outdoor pics have my eyes
I had other g-rated pics up previously that the wizards here took
off !! I guess they don't like men in sunglasses (?!?).
What if Stevie Wonder had a profile ??!!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Here's a bit about me:
~ I am confident and at ease with myself that on our first date I
will ask about you and talk about yourself in equal measure.
~ I am sincerely happy for you and your successful career
~I'm not a father, but I understand that having a child influences
your worldview profoundly.
~ I didn't exaggerate my height in my profile. I realize as soon as
we meet the cat's out of the bag. I am cute, but not a nordic god
~ I have felt heart-crushing pain. This is not about suffering or
living with hurt from the past. This is about being an adult. I
stayed there for as long as I had to and then moved on. You are at
least as resilient as I am and that makes me like you even
~I know the difference between participating in a string of fun
activities and seeking a life of happiness and joy. But that's not
to say that enjoying a string of fun activities is all bad either
~I know that the best way to end an argument is to lean in close,
brush your hair to the side, kiss my way up your neck, arriving at
your ear with a whisper of, "You're right." Of course I managed
this so deftly that you've long forgotten what the argument was
about and can think now only of the tingling from your toes to the
top of your head.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
dressing for the occasion, being friendly, selecting wines, trying
new things, staying in touch with people who are important to me,
placing apostrophes appropriately, writing parallel sentences,
driving my stick shift on hills, mixing a martini, framing out a
wall, making bad puns, keeping plants alive, unloading the
dishwasher, diving into a plate of steak and mash potatoes, reading
a map, fixing cracks in the drywall, keeping track of my keys,
power tools, analyzing films, flying through the air, working hard,
staying up late.

repeatedly for answers)

I'm a hoarder. I can't list six hundred things much less only six !
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How oddly this site and other online dating venue algorithms
well... no, not really I don't spend that much time thinking about
these things. However, I do dwell on those things that don't square
1) The little red , yellow, and green dots up in the corner that
represent how often people trade messages, actually are rather
inaccurate and seem randomly assigned !
2) How can we be 80% matched and 90% friends; or 90% matched and
40% enemies ?? Etc... I can understand simple stats like 80% match
20 % enemy. My poor simple mind !
3) Composite of OKC dating attempts from my OKC diary:
