My self-summary
Where might I find a smart, accomplished, stable, sane, solvent, sweet, modest, contented and trustworthy woman seeking the same for a devoted partnership notable for simplicity, reasonableness and mutual satisfaction? I'm a widower who had a blissful, soul-enriching marriage. And who stupidly believes such love can exist again.

Somehow, OKCupid is adept at pairing me with women seeking a tall, wealthy, hunky-attractive guy to provide her with the finest possessions, celebrity chef vegan/vegetarian dining and non-stop travel in the leading hotels of the world. Or women seeking oodles of "me time" for clubbing, concerts, road trips with friends, mind altering binges, etc. Or very religious women--whatever religion it is today--who get miffed if a guy occasionally attends to something that doesn't interest her. Or reformed nymphettes seeking sexless males (until the moment she gets a rare urge). Or child-women who view age appropriateness, intelligence and or devotion as buzz kill.

There are so many of them...who believe they're amazing finds.

Have all the salt-of-the-earth women given up hope?
What I’m doing with my life
Taking advantage of retirement with absolutely no strings or commitments.
I’m really good at
Treasuring that which is worthy of being treasured. Ignoring that which warrants no attention. Valuing the genuine and enduring. Getting to the point.
The first things people usually notice about me
Good people see me as being one of them. The devious and mean avoid me, as I do them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These change. Instead, the most important and pleasing items are things shared in a loving, supportive relationship...serendipitous finds, the first (or last) time enjoying something with my love, the things we promised each other we'd do next.

Past favorites are not as important as those things that will grow to become OUR favorites and treasured memories.
Six things I could never do without
--The friendship of gentle and good souls.
--Knowing that I NEED nothing other than the company and support of people of goodwill.
--A purpose.
--Hope.
--Love.
--Healthy skepticism.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My deceased wife who was far too wonderful to have suffered the health issues she faced for so long.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home (or walking) with my best buddy...my dog (actually, "her" dog).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
What I've said on this site isn't private or personal enough?
