My self-summary
3 years have come and gone here at okcupid. I thought it time to rethink my presentation. Maybe I have learned a thing or two from this experience.

Our hearts yearn, and our minds ponder and our bodies long to be touched. I'm looking to connect in mind, body and spirit.

I experience life as a journey to be appreciated, learned from and shared, and in our own way to give something back that gives purpose and meaning to it.

We are all unique in our own way, but finding the person that finds me to be their kind of special and then me to experience that as well is the journey that this is all about.

This life of ours is such a gift, it would be tragic on judgment day to look back and experience that we have missed out on realizing the dreams we had and they never came true.

The Rolling Stones have a song that says "You can't always get what you want, But if you try sometime you find, You get what you need". We all want a lot, but understanding what we have and what we need is about wisdom.

Surprise, surprise, I want what everyone else wants. No drama, humor, passion, fun, love, an intellectual connection, a physical connection. Everyone seems to want pretty much the same thing. So it turns out to be about physical attraction first and foremost. If that door is opened then we have a chance.

Ultimately I am looking for a kindred spirit. We have called it our soul mate, partner in crime, love of our life among others. A deeply profound connection on many levels. I am sure there are many our there that I would find great joy to know and love, but it is finding the one that will reciprocate. There the challenge lies.

I am truly ready to connect and find a forever lady to traverse eternity with. The journey is ready to begin, it just needs you!

Being empathetic, compassionate, compromising.
Being supportive, realistic, open minded, imaginative.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A slow reader, I tend toward movies and theater. I do love fantasy and Terry Brooks and the Shanara series is a favorite.

I love movies and you don't want my opinion because there are few I dislike. But some of my favorites; Groundhog Day, Galaxy Quest, The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao, Star Trek (the new ones), Lord of The Rings, Harry Potter (all of them). Lets just say SiFi and Fantasy are at the top of my list and then there are all the deep, moody, and emotional ones. (I like the ones that make me cry) Did you say chick flick, I'm in.

My favorite play is "The Drowsy Chaperone" and all the others. I love theater. Musicals, comedy, and drama.

Food, did someone say food? Love good food of any kind. I like all that is popular these days and I'm sure what you would enjoy, I would too. Chicken cooked about anyway and rice is on the top of my list.
Six things I could never do without
Music
Friendship
Great food
Great conversation
Being happy
and maybe you.
Six is just not anywhere close to enough, so here are some more;
Air conditioning
Coffee - black and keep it coming
My best friend, and I don't have you yet, I'm looking hard for you
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The moment, and it is now. Lets stay in it together.

The point, what was it again?

How to get replies from the women I contact here. Any suggestions?

The addictive nature of checking on this site.

Why do so many of the women here lie about their age? I hear men lie about their height. All too crazy!!!

Why do so many women post 10 year old pictures of themselves?

The whole height conundrum.

The total lack of normal human decorum online.

Will I ever find my true love?

Will I see world peace in my lifetime?

How on earth can I win the Lottery if I don't play?

How to make the perfect soft boiled egg?

Should I stay or should I go? OK, I'm being way too silly now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying the beginning of two days off work. Good food, good wine and hopefully good companionship.

I like going out on Friday night to dinner. Maybe a movie, but I don't do that without a partner. Don't like doing it alone. At home I'll make myself dinner and watch a movie from my library of movies or from the DVR, or Netflix or from one of the many movie channels. On the other hand I love rock concert videos and I have a bunch, more than 150. Never get tired of them. Music is the key to the soul. (Dancing in the living room to some great jazz)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should have read this yesterday
You should message me if
You think of yourself as beautiful inside and out.

You are clever and are looking for a man that is clever as well.

You have a good body and great legs and like to wear high heels to show off your legs.

You have a good sense of humor. Or descent, or have one. ;-)

You have no crazy height issue with me being 5'7". FYI. I do wear a high heeled dress boot that gets me to 5'9" if that means anything to you? (probably not!)

I remind you of your deep inner dreams of a life with someone that will connect with you on all of the most important levels.

If you want passion and a caring lover and be able to always be yourself as we make all our dreams come true.

Or simply because you think I might be your cup of tea, or coffee, as the case may be.
