Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a city boy living in the country. I spent most of my younger
and college years living in an urban environment (DC, Manhattan,
Arlington, Berlin, and others). As I've gotten older, I have
migrated out past the suburbs. I give myself 110% to my job so when
I leave work, I LEAVE WORK! I love sitting in my living room with
my dog in my lap, a fire crackling in the fireplace while watching
the migrating geese land in the salt marsh behind my house.
My ideal person would be someone like myself who is happy in the
country but lives in the city. Ultimately, I do not know where I
will live when I grow up, but I would like to meet someone who has
the same feelings as I do so we can figure it out together.
I have three boys off at college
I am looking for a best friend and partner. Someone interested in
building a relationship full of affection, mutual respect, romance,
passion and excitement. If you are looking for a man that is fun,
interesting and full of passion and enthusiasm let's get to know
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working at a job that I truly love. Trying to be the best father I
possibly can. Trying to make the world around me a better, safer
place. Fixing things. Fixing a mouthwatering grilled steak dinner
in under an hour!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing things. Since I seem to be really good at breaking things, I
have become good at fixing them as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Obviously my hair. I have a thick, full head of snow white hair. I
usually keep it cut pretty short.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am pretty food motivated. I love exploring the food world. I seek
out new and interesting places to eat. I have been known to read a
cookbook. Anthony Bourdain is my favorite chef at the moment. When
I was a kid my favorite was Graham Kerr, "The Galloping Gourmet".
Remember him? If I come across an interesting recipe I cut it out
and carry it around in my back pocket until I have a chance to cook
it. I once made a turduken for Christmas dinner. It was a great
idea but pretty hard to execute. Quite the ordeal!
I have over 6,000 songs on my iPhone. My taste in music is VERY
broad, everything from Barouque chamber music to Country. Not
usually in the same playlist though. I usually listen to "The
Bridge" or "Coffeehouse" on XM for all you satelite radio fans out
When I go to the movies I like to get a little vicarious thrill and
adventure. I have a broad taste in movies also. I just watched
Atonement again and loved it just as much as the first time. I will
watch just about anything but prefer "Sherlock Holmes", "Mission
Impossible", "Bourne Identity" action/thriller types. I have not
seen any of these, by the way, I just would like to. Would you like
to go to one with me?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My three children
My Marriott Rewards number
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can be a better, more effective person
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching one of my sons participate in some sporting event and
wishing I had a date afterwards.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I am not willing to admit much here. Maybe face-to-face I'll tell
you a private secret or two.
