My self-summary
I am a widower after being married for 30 years. It's been a long time since I've done anything like this! I'm looking to meet new people, find new friends, and I'm hoping to find someone special for a long term relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
I was the primary caregiver for my wife, who was a quadriplegic after a car accident. After she died, I have finally gone back to work again in electronics. I also am looking on the bright side by doing laughter yoga!
I’m really good at
Trivia. I'm in demand for trivial pursuit teams. I was a good skater in my youth. On the practical side, my sense of direction when I'm driving.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am on the quieter side, at times. It can take a bit for me to remember names of people I've just met. The geek can show through at times.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My kids got me reading Harry Potter. Science fiction, Lord of the rings (both) Star Trek, Star Wars, Bond, Pixar, and good animation are my favorites. On TV now I watch The Big Bang Theory, Bones, and starting in on Revolution. Listening to music is some classical, Beatles, Zeppelin, a lot of 70s, and my favorite band is Rush. Eating out I like mexican, seafood, chinese, american.
The six things I could never do without
Love!
My family - I have four children, 21-28, that I'm proud of and have enjoyed watching them grow up (my oldest daughter will be getting married in April!)
Friends
A cat (pr two or three on occasion)
My computer (to keep in touch with long distance friends)
A good night's sleep - I went without that for too long!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My past and future right now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working until 10:30! Interested in a late night meeting?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
how to answer this..... Well, I'm not a good dancer.
You should message me if
You think I would be interesting to meet because of or in spite of my quirks.
