I am living proof that chivalry is not dead, at least not yet. I'm the type of person who holds doors open for others, insist people go first and although my smiles tend to lack enthusiasm (I've been described as visually emotionless, stone faced and deadpan multiple times) they are still sincere as I am friendly, thoughtful and enjoy helping others, which often comes in the form of listening and offering advice.
Despite my age I'm a weathered and wizened old soul who has high morals. I believe in honesty, loyalty and action over words. Although I'm not an exceptional communicator (I tend to be reserved and quiet but not shy) I make up for it by being more physically affectionate; holding hands, cuddling, massaging your feet while watching a movie, etc.
Despite being old fashioned, conservative and tend to lean towards traditional thinking, I'm still open minded, considerate towards others and understanding. I also take a scholarly approach when learning about other cultures and religions and tend to be fascinated and enthralled when researching or discussing them.
With all of that said, I'm looking for someone to spend my time with; my friend and companion. Although I have no biases when it comes to race or religion, I'm not into heavier set women due to a few personal reasons. Feel free to ask why or ask anything as I'm an open book. I'm a hardworking and dedicated person, professionally and personally speaking. Give me your time, interest and affection and I'll return it in equal or greater measure.
Also, please note that if you see me checking out your page then something attracted me to it. Feel free to engage me in a conversation as I likely won't do so myself. I'm rather tired of sending out decent sized thoughtful messages with no responses to them.
....at getting that perfect pun in.
....cooking various dishes.
....causing half-witted grins to full blown laughter or just making eyes roll.
....at quoting songs, t.v., movies, etc.
I mostly get complimented on my eyes and, for some odd reason, my shoulders. People tend to also despise my humor as I like slapstick, dry humor, puns and the likes.
Some of my favorite television shows include American Dad, Breaking Bad, Doctor Who, Family Guy, Fringe, House M.D., Law & Order: SVU, NCIS, The Walking Dead, Arrow, Flash, etc. I also like anime but it's more of a passive thing.
Music.....lots of music. Lots of types of music. You can listen to 20 songs on my mp3 player and possibly get 20 different artists and genres. My favorite artists will always be Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. However, electric swing, dubstep and symphonic metal are trending right now.
I enjoy reading as well but lately that interest only comes with recommended books. My favorite book is The Phantom by Susan Kay. I generally read it once or twice a year. American Gods is another favorite of mine. I've also read one of the translations of The Art of War by Sun Tzu a few times.
3. The internet.
5. Food, for other than obvious reasons.
6. And for the realistic answer...air.
I'm a Jungian ISTJ and although I embody the astrological Taurus sign I only use it because astrology amuses me.
I'm actually a big nerd on the inside. I tend to shock people with my obscene amount of Star Wars, DC, Marvel, medieval, fantasy, sci-fi and general video game lore.
And other...less interesting stuff.
