Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Like Groucho Marx, I was born at a very early age. I have a quirky
sense of humour and try to see the comedy in all things. After all,
all that matters in life is funny and laughter when times are tough
can go a long way in helping you through.
I am comfortable with myself and do not pretend to be anything or
anyone I am not. I can be shy at first, but the right person will
inspire me to be gregarious and very open. I pride myself on
personal integrity and being a gentleman. I appreciate honest and
straightforward communication and promise the same. I'm loyal and
devoted in love, and a hopeless (hopeless - it should be repeated,
it's that hopeless) romantic. I have close relationships with my
friends and family and I enjoy doing things for the people I care
and now a poetic break to warm your heart and make you swoon:
The running child,
are all the same...
to the Sliding glass door.
As for my interests, I enjoy watching independent and foreign
films, as well as going to museums, art shows concerts, theater
performances and going hiking, but I can be perfectly content
staying at home and listening to music or renting a DVD as well. I
enjoy conversing about a wide variety of subjects including books,
politics, music, art, and movies. I love to learn new things and I
am always reading or researching something. I enjoy cooking even
though I’ve not had enough time to do it lately.
I regularly come up with unusual theories about things I see around
me. My current theory is that Global Warming is caused by Bono, the
lead vocalist of the band U2. Bono's ego has been growing at an
exponential rate since 1982. That much mass in one place is slowly
causing the Earth's orbit around the sun to slowly decay. This in
turn has caused rising global temperatures as the Earth is closer
to the Sun. Scientist call this the Bono effect. This 'Bono effect'
is the reason humanitarian NGO's keep Bono moving around the globe
constantly. If Bono were to stay in one place too long, the Earth
would go tumbling into the Sun.
As for what I'm looking for, I suppose I'm looking for someone who
won't beat me up and take my lunch money. (I did mention the sense
of humor, right?)
Seriously though, I think I'm looking for what everyone else is
looking for. Aren't we all looking for that one person whose face
lights up just because we are there? Aren't we looking to ask the
question "What are WE doing this weekend?" rather than "What am I
doing this weekend?"
My dream girl is funny and smart, she greets life with class but
isn't afraid to let her hair down and dig in her fingernails.
Enthusiasm, intelligence, sincerity...those are the sexiest
qualities a woman can possess.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
This is often interpreted as "what job do you have"...I have a job,
but I work to live, not live to work. What makes life for me is
enjoying my music collection (which is only more enjoyable if I can
share it with another music lover), concerts, hiking, golf,
following the Red Sox and finding The One who will like being my
partner, best friend and cherished one.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

wish that weren't so easy....my sense of humor helps me survive...

Similar tastes are fine...but I also appreciate someone who can
bring me a new perspective. I like a sharp mind in my
A book that made a big impression on me is the Biography of
Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a minister who stood
up to Hitler in the 1930's and was killed for it. I am awed by
people of such conviction and heroism. I'm not a WWII hero, but I
believe that conviction can carry weight in every day
interactions....like showing someone that you care instead of just
talking it to death. I favor action over words.
Movies: Joyeux Noel is a favorite as it portrays my all time
favorite Historical event - Christmas 1914, when both the German
side and the British sides stopped the war for a day, sang
Christmas Carols, Exchanged gifts across the lines, played a
football match, and there was peace on Earth for a day during one
of the most horrific wars that ever was fought. I love Fritz Lang's
film 'M,' - perhaps the greatest suspense film of all time. I'm a
fan of Jean-Pierre Jeneut films, especially 'Delicatessen,' and
'City of Lost Children' Blade Runner is also a favorite, but I wish
Ridley Scott had thought to place it further in the future (2019 is
just 7 short years away). I love Terry Gilliam Films and I am
constantly amazed at how prophetic 'Brazil' is.
I am really into music and collect records (I have about 4,000). I
have pretty eclectic tastes. As far as I'm concerned, good music is
good music regardless of genre. It's easier to list the least few
records I've purchased:
Beach Boys - Pet Sound (original US Capital mono)
Rolling Stones - No.2 (original un-boxed Decca UK)
Ella Fitzgerald - Clap Hands Here Comes Charlie (original US Verve
The Who - Who's Next (original UK Track)
Grant Green - Green Street (New York Label Blue Note)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

3. Good Coffee
4. Close Friends
6. Le Creuset - the most wonderful cookware in existence
These are numbered so I can remember to limit them to six, but are
in no particular order.
