My self-summary
Note: because OK Cupid kept pushing to get to 100% on a profile this is the culmination This is a long profile in my opinion too.
for those that have complained build a bridge, and get over it


A widower moving back into mainstream. exploring life again. Considering, long or short term dating, Activity partner, going wherever it leads.

Young at heart, and full of life's wisdom so I'm told. Now biking 5 days a week (at work) so I guess strong at heart works too.
I'm still figuring out the dating scene , in a awkwardly comfortable way.

US Army retiree, I'm now 63 look 55 feel 45 lol , transplanted into Texas.
Between the grand kids, I currently help out by baby sitting 3 granddaughters , three days a week. Between the kids and work... an epiphany..., I have no life !!!
Life is meant to be enjoyed and shared, so here I am.

I believe in the importance of communication in relationships.
My late wife and I shared many different and divergent views, but , compromise and respect, and love, kept us together for 32 plus years so I figure it worked.

I do maintain my Ohio sports allegiances though. Go Browns go Buckeyes. Indians and Cavs

I am Non-drinker, non smoker but that doesn't mean others have to be. Its not my place to judge . I have a Lotta passion for life left to offer, short term ,Long term or U turn.

I enjoy the company of someone who can make me laugh and smile. However that Individual must be NFL tolerant.

My humor can be and is all over the map, eclectic, sardonic,dry, physical and slapstick.
I am also an excellent listener. I have would have no problem listening to how your day was, good bad or venting. or something as simple as just sitting, holding hands in silence, enjoying the moment.

I would like to believe there is still love at first sight, and there are soul-mates for each and every one

When I arrived in Texas as a Midwest transplant, I swore, No Pick ups, Cowboy hats,and no Cowboy boots... I now have all three and can't remember what the fuss was all about.

My dancing skills have eroded (Gone to hell) I hope to find someone with untiring patience, and willingness to retrain me lol.
A turtle never moves or gets anywhere without sticking his head out. So mine is out because Life is way too short and precious to live in a shell.

No drama if it can be helped I've filled up my quota.
Being realistic I know life does hang baggage on people, its unavoidable. Please, any baggage must fit under the seat,no steamer trunks lol

I am humorous, reliable, and honest
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working as security for a University Police Dept, .It keeps me busy and its fun.
I ride a mountain bike 40 hrs a week and and attempt to not do too much bodily injury to this pink and white body.
Currently on the day shift after 7 years on on the graveyard shift. My Moon tan has been in traded for some sunscreen.
I’m really good at
Talking current issues,enjoying life with most like minded individuals. Cuddling , and I can cook reasonably ..

I would put Golf down, but after breaking 3 Ribs riding bike The lay off hurt my game , I'll just say I can hack now, but I wouldn't turn down an opportunity from those like minded individuals

I enjoy camping and hiking,
White water rafting is a nice get away, but room service seems to be more attractive as the years roll by lol

I'm a pro at sitting home on couch with popcorn and a great flick but can switch to sitting in a theater, watching Broadway or opera in a heart beat I do miss the Cleveland Orchestra a lot.

My motto has and still is willing to try anything once and if I survive it, twice, and have demonstrated that many times over

The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, then my salt and pepper hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I Like old movies Arsenic and Old Lace or Harvey are two favorites.Classics like African Queen and Bringing up Baby are a must . Lately into anything Sci- Fi like Farscape, Fire Fly or Dr Who.

Lets not forget almost old and moldy favorites such as Goonies, Rocky Horror Picture Show. The Good, Bad and and Ugly. Good to see any time.I also make a point of having a Band of Brothers Marathon once a year for selected friends. A nice foreign film favorite is Das Boot, I just acquired the 3 hour version, I just can't see myself handling the 6 hour version I don't care how many foreign Oscars it won

just depends who I'm with and what and where the mood takes us.

Flea markets and antiquing are a big plus.I am up for most travel adventures I've done new Orleans almost 50 times and 3 Mardi Gras,and eaten at Emerils.(Bam). Been there done, that, lost the bank account lol
Simple is just as good, just a walk anywhere to see a sunset or sunrise.
Cuddling on a couch with that special person with or with out a movie is just as interesting, and I have gotten high marks on giving massages.

Books: anything by Sue Grafton, Patricia Cornwell, Dean Koontz. Dan Brown, Dale Brown, or Clive Cussler, Rick Riordan and Jim Butcher. The auto biography of Churchill is a highly recommend.

Music- Classic Rock /Classical /or selected C&W/ Jazz, Blues, anything by George Szell conducting the Cleveland Orchestra.

Six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Making Plans but not planning the results.

Finding those around me whose words and actions match.

Why my punctuation sucks.

Remembering that my job is what I do, Its not who I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting used to having it off
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
if you ask real....nice.. then maybe I'll tell
You should message me if
You feel we might have common ground to explore.
If your not sure all the better. what better way to see if opposites do attract.
Cant Hurt, might help.
The two of us
