Since I last worked on this ad a lot of things have changed in my life. So I think I'll throw it out and start fresh.
I'm a blogger. I founded and co-administer the major blog-linking site in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Until my job schedule changed recently I appeared on TV every week to promote blogging in NEPA, and I'm thinking of getting back into it. But I've also had my own blog for eight years.
I'm a writer. That's part of blogging. I meet with a writing group in Scranton every week. That's pretty important to me.
I'm also deeply involved in Northeastern Pennsylvania through my blog and in other ways. This is my home, I need to work to make it a better place.
I have a degree in Physics. I hang out with writers, poets, bloggers, musicians, artists, actors, sword swallowers, fire eaters, and burlesque dancers. I'm drawn to people who are creative and don't mind expressing themselves. I'm also drawn to people who are creative and introverted. Nothing is sexier to me than a woman with a brilliant mind, except maybe a woman with a brilliant mind and a guitar. Who swallows swords and breathes fire.
Does any of this sound like you? Even if it doesn't, that doesn't mean I won't be interested in you. And if you've always wanted to do some of these things - well, it's never too late to start!
I'm not looking to rush into anything. If you're looking to get married or find a father for your children in the next few months, I'm not that guy. If you want to go for a stroll at sunset and watch the shadow of the Earth rise in the East while singing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," I'm your man.
I'm also not here to atone for anyone else's sins, any more than you would be there to make up for decades of postponed life for me. We are what we are. Let's go from here.
Deal breakers: I don't go out with women who are currently married. Sorry. I'd make a great auxilliary husband for quite a few married women I know, doing all the things their husbands have forgotten about since they got married. But I don't do that. If you're Currently Separated, make it a clean break.
I don't like smokers. I don't like the way it makes you taste, and I don't like what it does to your body. Heavy drinkers, too. I'm practically a teetotaler, but I can drink. Heck, in that sense I guess I'm a cheap date.
I'm not pretty. I'm not trim, athletic, or handsome. I can get there, if someone gives me a good enough reason. But if that's what you're looking for right now, that's not me.
I have strength, stamina, dexterity, and the constitution of an ox. I also give great backrubs.
So that's me. If you find that interesting, drop me a line.
