Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have been divorced twice...and I have only dated four women in
the last 49 years...so I may be a little out of touch with the
modern dating scene.
I polled some friends and family for a one word description of
me...these were the top answers ...Generous, Spiritual, Creative,
Kind, Loving, Easy-Going, and Jerk (I may have included an enemy in
I laugh out loud at Bugs Bunny cartoons, I play fantasy football, I
love to cook and create new recipes, I believe the bible is
absolute truth, and music is my main form of entertainment.
I am looking for a woman who knows how to laugh and cry out loud
without holding back...somebody who can share their soul completely
without mistrust or deceit.
My boys are all grown, and my grandkids come to live with me every
summer (ages 6 and 7)...I also have a 12 year old grandson who
lives out of state but rarely visits. My grandchildren are the
light of my life, and I miss them terribly when they go home...but
I make sure to keep open space for myself when they are here.
I consider myself to be a christian and a spiritual person...but I
rarely attend church. I am not affiliated with any specific
religion but I do attend a weekly bible study. I was raised
Catholic but have attended many different churches over the years.
I would like to find a woman who is spiritual, but not necessarily
dogmatic about religion.
Music is a very big part of my life...all styles (I have even
learned to appreciate the creativity of hip-hop..but I don't like
it or listen to it) My sons write and perform songs, and I have
even written some lyrics for them myself. I usually have music
playing when I am at home. I would like my partner to appreciate
music and enjoy going out to local bars and coffee houses to hear
new local talent.
Football is big with me and my sons...we have a fantasy football
league, and Sundays usually include a big pot of "Dad's Football
Chili"...some beer...and a lot of yelling at the tv and gloating
over fantasy scores...Of course we all root for the Browns, no
matter who we have on our fantasy rosters. I would like my partner
to at least tolerate a love for football, even if she doesn't like
or follow it.
I believe that the key to any successful relationship is
honesty...I consider myself to be a man of integrity and I will
answer any questions you may have honestly. So if there is anything
I haven't covered here...just ask and you shall receive an honest
I can't read minds...or even body language very well, and so I rely
on my partner to tell me what she needs or wants. And I will not
assume that she can read my mind, so I will also be very open about
my feelings. I need my partner to be able to discuss relationship
issues face to face...with acceptance, love, and
understanding...without judgement or anger.
I am ready to find a woman to share my life with...and one who is
willing to share hers (hopefully it's the same woman..LOL). I need
to spend time with a woman to develop a relationship...and if I am
in a relationship, then I expect that we will spend a lot of time
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
This summer I have my grandchildren living with me, so I am
spending a lot of time with them. (crayons, ice cream, bathing
suits, etc..) But usually I am just being myself and petting my cat
in front of the tv...while I am lost in thought...or playing catch
with my dog.
I work very early in the morning...I have to be there by 4:00 so Im
not much of a night owl..I am usually in bed by 8
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hmmm....I have been told I have nice lips and I am a good
kisser...but that's not the kind of thing I should mention here. I
think I am very good at creating new recipes (but I have a unique
sense of taste that isnt for everyone)...I have several fantasy
football trophies...and I can write poetry
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think most people notice how quiet I am...sometimes it is
mistaken for aloofness or arrogance...but it's really just shyness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite book without a doubt has to be the bible...it has
history, romance, action, adventure, poetry, philosophy, and even
Movies: Anything with Groucho Marx...but a few of my favorite
movies are Unforgiven, Jaws, Pulp Fiction, Me Myself and Irene,
Arthur, Dog Day Afternoon, and When Harry Met Sally.
Music: Anything that isn't on the top 40...I love music...but I
hate the modern crap that passes for music. Give me anything from
Hank Williams to Theory Of A Dead Man.
Food: I never met a food I didn't like. My tastebuds are not
discriminating...Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Greek, or good
old fashioned American hamburgers...but I especially love cooking,
and re-inventing old recipes (I never make the same meatloaf
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
5. A scalding hot bath
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I was ten years ago
Where I will be ten years from now
Where the hell did I leave my keys?
What if I had taken that left turn at Albuquerque?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dreaming and occasionally waking up to check the clock...I work
very, very early on Saturday morning.
But on my nights off (Saturday and Sunday nights)....I am listening
to music, writing, or working on my fantasy football
lineup...depending on the time of year.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I told you then I would have to kill you...
But the second most private thing Im willing to admit is that I
still love to watch cartoons.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you are serious about developing a relationship...and have time
to spend on it. If you can handle being with somebody who smokes
(although I am considerate and don't smoke around people who find
it offensive). If you believe that love is real...but not always
easy. Or if you think I am adorable and just cant resist me...then
by all means contact me.
