Help! Was feeling lonely and someone told me of a singles bar, an older crowd, a few blocks from my home. What was I thinking? OK, I know now that the bar scene is definitely not my thing.... Please someone rescue me? The most shocking thing is that I found myself wishing I had someone there to dance with.... (I never saw that coming...)
So.... I just moved to Denver (March 2014). In the midst of a bunch of changes going on, I looked at myself in the mirror one night before bed and realized that I no longer saw the much more adventuresome (and much younger) version of myself. The very short version is that I got rid of everything I owned, shipped 4 boxes of tools and equipment (I'm a communications field engineer, what ever that means), carried 2 suitcases of clothes, and got on a plane and moved to Denver. A few weeks later, I've rented an apartment, with fireplace and mountain view (both are small). Now what? Maybe time to meet you.... The woman I dream about.
So now a little about me...
I'm 61 years old, slim, and little children rarely run from the sight of me, and until a few weeks ago, I lived in west Fort Lauderdale. I have 2 daughters, one who is 36, married, and last year made me a grandfather, and living in England. My other daughter is 18 (what was I thinking, starting another family!). They both give meaning to my life. I'm as Woody Allen said, "Jewish with an explanation". I have a slightly strange sense of humor and one of my brothers always tells me that when they say I am a "sixties" type of guy, they are not complimenting me. Oh well. I am a little bit of an ex-hippy and Boy Scout meaning I go with the flow most often and I am Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind and so on. If I had to describe myself I would say I am a nice guy. I want to meet someone who is a fit. She remembers the sixties fondly, thinks that today is amazing, and can not wait for tomorrow. Has a sense of adventure but has not too many recent arrests for indecent exposure. She does not think that camping out means no room service, but still enjoys ordering it. When we meet, we will talk until the sun rises. We both will know that it's a match.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects....
I just picked up a copy of "Best of Denver 2014". How about joining me in an adventure as we explore and discover the "best of". (Not sure what I'll do when we get to Tattoos and Colon Cleansing)
