I'm a regular guy who works for a living and likes being me. Born and raised on Chicago's northwest side, I love the city’s sights and sounds but prefer life under quiet, starry skies amongst good neighbors and being close to my daughter and three small grandsons. Love visiting and hanging at the lakefront, though, and I have family in Chicago.
My primary passions include creative writing; I write every day. I’m also enjoy photography and am a huge movie lover: romantic comedies, historical dramas, some action films, sci-fi -- pretty much anything but slasher flicks and mindless teen fluff. Looking for someone who loves going to movies, or watching them at home, and enjoys talking about them afterward.
I’m looking for a down to earth woman, preferably with some creative interests who lives reasonably near to me. I don’t care if you own a home, live in an apartment or are temporarily bunking with your people. I don’t care what kind of car you drive or where you work. “Down to earth” describes me and the lady I seek. If you’ve hit some bad times, that shouldn’t keep you from finding a new partner.
If your idea of happiness is the latest BMW model and a lusting after ever more upscale homes, we wouldn't be compatible.
Two adult kids (on their own)
Three incredible grandsons
Down to earth
Good, albeit offbeat, sense of humor
Enjoys deep conversations
Great fan of physical intimacy
Always put the seat down
Not completely unfortunate-looking
The rest you’ll have to find out on your own!
While looks aren’t everything, please post a “recent” photo. After all, I showed you mine; it's only fair you show me yours.
FINE PRINT: I don't do motorcycles, gamble, hunt, fish, rock climb, participate in triathlons or golf -- unless you count mini golf! I am not the “corporate” cubicle type and have zero interest in becoming a Snowbird and moving to Arizona -- That's for old people. Oh, I don't play well with political conservatives!
I enjoy my job but am by no means a workaholic. My job pays the bills; everything else is my life.
I'm a good listener and really enjoy good conversations about pretty much anything except the lives of the rich and famous or fashion.
Oh, yeah, I'm a darn good spooner!
Movies: I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy! Other than that, historical dramas (like Gladiator, The Last Samurai) and some science fiction are also fun.
