My self-summary
Ladies, I religiously image search now, so if your pic is not you I'm gonna find out. I'm less focused on how you look than how honest you are! If you happen to be 'stranded somewhere' 'need money for your passport' or looking for a 'sugar daddy' Let it go. If you're not in the continental US there's really no point. I'm broke too, or nearly so anyway. I'll be personable but distant until/unless we meet in person and that likely won't happen if you've not read my profile at least. Sorry. I've had people try to scam me before and I'll take convincing.

I'm an older, disabled liberal with an odd sense of humor, I'm a bit of a smartass in fact. I walk with a limp and honestly, I wish I could walk more than I do. I'm not religious but I have a faith. I don't expect you to share it of course but you're welcome to ask. Don't ask me to go to church, there's a long story and nobody likes long stories.
When it comes to food I'm a true omnivore, aside from one significant allergy I try not to limit myself. No, I'm not interested in becoming vegan or taking on a 'raw food' diet thanks.
So...If you're looking for a slower, mellower guy in no kind of hurry at all who's articulate, got a creative mindset and isn't totally 'normal' but certainly 'safe' then we should talk. You should know I don't smoke (I'm allergic in fact), I don't drink (tastes spoilt to me but it's fine for cooking with), and I don't get high at all. I also don't judge. If you want to know more you really ought to ask. I should probably point out that I'm obese, because a lot of people care about that. If it's a deal breaker do walk on and be well!

Let's sum up. I'd like to speak to sincere ladies currently living near Tampa FL, who are not visiting family/interviewing for a modelling job. in a far flung country and need me to send them money for a ticket or customs thing. Why not? I'm not quite broke but nearly so and these are usually things a SCAMMER says. Not a tough concept, be sincere, don't be a scammer. If you qualify, please feel free to say hi, honest....I'm not a raving paranoid, just cautious. Once burned twice shy. No, you may not have my email address, phone number, or other personally identifying information until we've met in person. Hope you can understand.
What I’m doing with my life
Disabled/retired, for the large part whatever I like and can afford!
I’m really good at
Listening actively, distilling meaning from the vapor of nuance, creative writing of several kinds.

There are several unlisted talents of course!

Apparently I'm also really good at attracting scammers...so if that's you here's your sign. I'm not rich, I'm barely above the poverty line and if you're from Ghana, Nigeria, Bhutan or wherever that's NOT near me, don't bother. I can't afford to send anyone money, I'm able to pay my bills and that's about all. I'm sincere, I'm hoping to find people who are also.
The first things people usually notice about me
in person-my size (hello? overweight? get your mind out of the gutter!)
otherwise-my personality
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books-SciFi/Fantasy/Horror/ some Mystery (Niven & Pournelle/William Gibson/Neal Stephenson/Anne McCaffrey)
Movies- Almost anything provided it's done well
I've never seen a live show, so no telling
Music-Almost anything I've heard to one degree or another, prefer folk/rock/jazz. Not a huge fan of Country/Western and only like selected hip-hop/rap
Food- what I don't like would be a much shorter list. VEGANS NEED NOT APPLY. (No shame, but I eat things with faces, It'll disgust you and who needs that?)
Six things I could never do without
Something to read
Water (the last four not necessarily in that order)

(I didn't mention air or gravity, but I live on planet earth, so I don't think I have to do without them at this time =P)

By the way, Ladies? This is one of the first sections I read in any woman's profile, it tells me a lot and warns me away from those whom I will tend to disagree with on one particular point. I hate fighting over what someone else finds important, so I don't.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'll reserve this for people I really know well; the answer while startling isn't in any way harmful or dangerous.
On a typical Friday night I am
Home, unless fate intervenes! Often in front of the computer to keep my mind active.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been homeless twice in my life and never will again if I can help it at all. I'm nowhere near as 'vanilla' as I seem, but I keep that to myself unless I know it's welcome.
You should message me if
You LIKE older men, aren't fixated as much on appearance as substance and prefer someone literate with a sense of humor and the faintest touch of kink. My age range is not hard and fast, but there needs to be that spark. Eyes and smile, hearts and minds pretty much rule over any physical attraction for me but honestly, if you're stunning I'm gonna notice!

::: Ladies, I'm not a bank and I have no money to speak of, so if you're looking for a sugar daddy or someone to 'help you with your expenses' I don't have it...keep walkin.:::

Just so we're clear, smoking or any sort of fanaticism is a 100% deal-breaker.

Please please please please please. Don't message me if you are temporarily or permanently not anywhere near me geographically. It's really disconcerting to talk to someone for weeks only to find they're in Africa or Turkey and nowhere near me.

I don't normally message if:
"Y'all got issues"
"God/Religion" appear in your six most important things
Despite OKC 'matching' us I'm not in your age range or you're not in mine.
The two of us
