I'm into reading, occasionally writing, Movies, Museums, BBQing, Golf, traveling to visit family hiking with Man's Best Friend to someplace where I can relax and they may indulge their noses.
Time with my family and friends and dogs is at a premium and I strive to make it happen. I work hard, so I can play a little hard and relax as well as retire from my current line of work in a few years, as planned and find a part-time gig so I can travel and see the world. If I don't find the right lady to share it with, I'm going anyway. Too much too see, too many cultures to explore and too many interests to indulge and fulfill.
I'm an Infomaniac and culture junkie with a dry sense of humor and realistic and humanist outlook on life and history. I am, however a romantic at heart as well. I am also a voracious reader, a movie and film history buff, a golf nut, a loyal friend, a student of visual arts and architecture, a super-uncle and a devoted son.
I love sharing movies with the people they remind me of. I enjoy lending out the right book to the right person. Once I become interested in something or I attempt something new, I'm all in. I become excited about new discoveries I know someone else will get a kick out of.
What am I looking for my other half? She is the very definition of modern femininity -attractive, smart, self-reliant, worth the hassle and yet, for some strangely unfathomable reason, she's nuts about me. She wants me but doesn't need me. She's Yin to my Yang, Cuff to my Link, Lois to my Clark, Cathy to my Heathcliff, O'Keeffe to my Stieglitz, Minnie to my Micky...and my partner in crime...as it were.
Conservatives need not apply.
Leaving this site soon...a few thoughts RE: Ladies profiles.
-Stop trying to shave years off your face with Instagram and photoshop. It's why you don't get asked out again, or speaking for those of us who aren't stupid, ever.
-Stop lying about your age and wasting everyone's time. It is the reason you aren't asked out again AND the guy eats quickly.
-Stop posting pictures of your kids. For those that are dumb enough to ask "why"? Pay attention and I will try to use small words:
There people out there that other people refers to as "Child Molesters". Guess what, genius? They cruise these sites to find kids. With all the photos of them here, they can be selective, too. Are you effing stupid, or what? Do you watch TV? Stating you have kids is enough, PERIOD. You don't need to risk your children's safety just to drive the point home that you have kids. We get it. You have kids. And don't plead tech naivete. PC's have been common in households for 17 friggin' years...and I thought men were dumb...
-Learn the difference between curvy, a few extra pounds and whatever other nicety Match designates for your lack of living healthily.
-Be careful of profiles with only head-shots (See previous comment).
-Box within your own weight class. Everyone's tired of ignoring overtures from people that haven't a remote shot at them. This is a metaphor, not a shot at the overweight. It is called "getting real". Think I bother to tell Match I'm interested in a girl I'm a "90% Match" with, except she lives in Beverly Hills and is a supermodel? Um, no. Be real, not romantic in your selections.
-Funny how it's ALWAYS "Conservatives" that dress the sluttiest and are seeking "Soul Mates" with the highest incomes. The dichotomy being the men seeking "Soul Mates" that are aesthetically beautiful...(see the PGA Tour).
-Match: Please include filtering software that can scan photos and determine just how much silicone and botox are present. (See previous comment for a wealth of beta-test photos).
