I have written and rewritten my profile a few times now, and I'm of the mind at this point that saying little is better.
Here's a little: I like to talk about many things and I'm not afraid to deal with controversy. At the same time I am very sensitive to when people have firm beliefs and positions, and not to make them uncomfortable or challenge them. As you'll see below, I like film and I like music, in spite of the time we live in now, where art forms are generally derivative.
I am not into social media at all. For me it's a complete waste of time.
I have lost a chunk of weight in the last 12 months (60 lbs) and still have a bit to go about 25 pounds. I think I look pretty good though and I am in decent shape.
This isn't much to go with, but, I'm more comfortable with you having a look at me, seeing the simple things like where I live, my height, and my basic stats, and if you're interested in contacting me, or responding to my introduction, then we can go from there.
I am a real person, not a scammer or text only time waster, and think that I am a lot of fun to be with, but ultimately, we have to meet in order to see if there's a spark.
Good luck to all of you:-)

I don't read many books right now, but when I do I tend to gravitate towards biographies. I've been trying to teach myself German (Rosetta Stone) and enjoy it a lot. Would love to meet someone that I can practice with.
I do think the greatest writer of prose in the 20th century was Evelyn Waugh, and I loved the British television production of Brideshead Revisited
