I am a good looking , very fit for my age 62 year old man. Tall, nice shoulders and biceps, no belly. I'm a good dresser.
I am squeaky clean honest with women. I lose out on some women because of this but it's good karma. I am educated, have a decent sense of humor. I love working out, coffee on the weekends, delicious food, a good martini, a variety of music, movies, musical theater, being myself with others, enjoying good real conversation. We are all just travelers here in life for a short time. Trying to enjoy it as much as we can while we can.
I am fortunate to live on the water so I get to watch the seagulls and pelicans put on their show every morning while I am getting ready for work.
One thing I am passionate about would be this : I do not feel the schools prepare young people for life. While it is good to be exposed to the various academic subjects we all learn , most of that material is quickly forgotten after the final exam. In my view there are three areas that people in our culture need to have a good grasp on and the earlier the better. These are 1) dating mating and relationships 2) career choice 3) personal finance. I authored a book about this so others can learn from my mistakes.
My father was a major influence in my life. He taught me integrity and how to work hard. He also taught me the consequences of not taking care of oneself and being happy. He died way too early.
Other influences have been Dr. David Viscott who taught me about communicating honestly to oneself and others, Dennis Prager who exemplifies clarity and goodness, and I think Bill O'Reilly makes a lot of sense so I guess that makes me a conservative.
I love quotes. Here are some quotes that I like.
There is no such thing as shoulda coulda woulda ... If you shoulda and you coulda, you woulda.
- Pat Riley , former Lakers coach
Life is lived forward and understood backward.
- Soren Kierkegaard
Failure is the best teacher
Drinks , coffee or dinner.
Then if we hit it off ... then , of course, we fly to Paris :)
