I've been on this site before. I drop in, get a little discouraged, drop out. It's fun to meet new people but I'd really like to have that special chemistry with just one. Is that you? Alas, I can't see if you "like" me, so you'll have to try your hand at a note if you think the answer might be yes. And empty profiles make me 🙁
I was raised to have integrity, to be honest, appreciative, and grateful - to treat people well, have fun, and to share my toys. I find I gravitate to those who have an equally unrealistic view of the world (so, no Republicans, please.)
Funny, smart, and informed is a favorite combination and good conversational skills are much appreciated.
Having seen parts of Africa, Asia, South America, Central America and Europe only makes me want more!
I'm into moderation in all things - including moderation.
I love french fries and foie gras - why choose? (I also like healthy food - I love it all!) Cooking brings me pleasure, though don't do it as often as I'd like. Maybe you can inspire me . . .
Though I've loved them, I have to admit a certain suspicion of those who don't drink coffee.
The young'uns seem to like me, but I'm looking for someone closer to my own age . . . (They also don't seem to read this far into my profile.)
I was raised Jewish "Lite" and identify more with the culture than the religion - a soulful pragmatist (Agnostic).
I can drive a standard.

Happily divorced - no kids
Truth in advertising: Please be honest in your profile and have a couple recent photos - and not just of your eye, or your headless, shirtless torso or your crotch (you know who you are), or hiding behind sunglasses - if you want to make contact. This is a visual medium. You've seen me. It's only fair... No photos, no dice.
Fortune favors the bold. And remember, the question is "what is your age," not "what do you wish were your age."
If you think there might be a connection, send me a note - If I feel the same I'll get back in touch and we can take it from there.
Knowing the difference between "they're," "their," and "there," as well as "your" and "you're."
And they're blue.
My eyes. (what were you thinking?!?)

Too many to write but I'm in the process of compiling a comprehensive list of recommendations for friends who've asked. For now, you should know that Young Frankenstein and The Deer Hunter are both among the top 20.
So many sounds for so many moods. I am very susceptible to "ear worms" - once a song is in there, I find it nearly impossible to dislodge it.
By now, you know how I feel about food, don't you? I'm an omnivore from way back.
something to look forward to
not necessarily in that order
Why anyone chooses to WRITE IN ALL CAPS.
Why any guy who wants to get laid would sport a "man bun?"
(There is mounting evidence for a genetic cause to this aversion. I am not alone: check out the site http://www.ihatecilantro.com Incidentally, I don't generally direct rage at herbs.)
Here is my wish list. You're:
Thoughtful, but not brooding.
Ambitious, but not a shark.
Sensitive, but not too soft.
Smart, but not arrogant.
Attractive, but not unreal.
A generous giver and a gracious receiver.
Fit, but not fanatical.
Interested in debate, but not argumentative.
Confident, but not overly competitive.
Oh, and a great kisser.
In short, I'm looking for a worthy opponent.
