Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A really good evening together would be a home-cooked meal --
together or I'll do it alone -- with both of us having a glass of
wine and laughing and bantering. Then we eat and have a bit more
wine and then watch a great movie and then whatever.
I like to discuss things but not into arguing. Talk about just
about everything from the intellectual to the everyday.
I have a confession to make: I'm not living life to the fullest
every moment. If I live life at about 81% I think I'm doing pretty
good. When I read how intent some are to live every single moment
to the fullest, I become exhausted and take a nap.
If you area woman who place a high value on "a good sense of
humor", I feel I qualify. At least you should give me an
I work out by lifting weights a bit, making my shoulders broader,
thus making my waist seem smaller. I'm serious about finding a girl
friend who clicks; two are better than one in so many ways. I love
to feel comfortable with someone.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach both at the high school and adult education level. English
and acting. Have done it for a long time and enjoy it. Try to bring
my sense of humor into the classroom. If I entertain myself,
usually the students are having fun too. Keep 'em laughing and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking a nice meal with a complimentary wine (think I've already
said this). Love to experience something (like going to LACMA) with
someone special and then discuss it and laugh about it or analyze
it with great . . . um . . . insight over a glass of wine or coffee
or some liquid. But I usually go out to dinner or cook at home and
watch a good movie cuz how often does anyone go to a museum.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Blue eyes with twinkle. Quick wit and easy laugh. I'm bigger than
they are. I use words like "esoteric" in a sentence and seem to
know what it means (or good at faking it).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Almost anything British. Detective novels. Some nonfiction. Like to
discuss but not argue. Saw Stephen King's Dead Zone again the other
day and realized why Christopher Walken is a star. Like the series
Grimm but it's getting a bit complex. Love to go see a movie on a
Sunday and then have brunch somewhere -- particularly if a good
game is on. Nice.
Enjoy cooking -- particularly comfort foods. Pot roast, Beef
Burgundy, meatloaf (am going to a meat loaf cook-off soon),
American classics such as Chicken a la King. Love to go wine
tasting, enjoy happy hours a lot.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Witty and friendly banter
a home cooked meal
nurturing friends and family who listen and care
back rubs and back scratches
my Abyssinian kitty, Winnie
"The Prisoner" wine (and others)
Sherlock Holmes and other good mystery stories
cards and board games
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
new recipes (and sometimes I not only think about them but actually
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Throwing away uncompleted TO DO lists from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Okay, it has to come out sometime. I actually listen to Easy
Listening (aka elevator) music while reading and studying. I
realize that this is a deal breaker for some, but the truth would
have to come out.
