Sheesh, so the heading on my computer-generated profile description makes me sound like a whale with a cigarette hanging out of its mouth. Niiice. And guys are still attracted to that? It makes you wonder what animal life is circling in the dating pool. i'm working on the "few extra pounds." Let's just say i'm 5 pounds away from an average BMI; otherwise, actuarial tables (or Michele Obama) would consider me "overweight." The politically correct term is "curvy." Oh, just go look at the damn pictures. Not bad for 50.
OK...so...i'm a conservative in a landmine of liberals, which i guess needs to be put out there; otherwise, we could come to blows in the parking lot on the first date when i start making fire extinguisher and Chevy Volt jokes. i have an odd career (OK, it's not a career; it's something thrown together from random scrap jobs): i work in health care and micro-manage recalcitrant caregivers all day/weekends. i am an intellectual smart-ass, originally from the East Coast and still with that mindset: like Seinfeld but not Jewish. i like watching bad reality TV, writing books (published author...W00t!) and going to all kindsa counter-cultural events which, no doubt, you've never heard of. i'm great with a crockpot, but i'm no neat freak...life's too short.
my current favorite quote is from a kids' show called "Flapjack": "The hardest thing a man must do is be nice to a woman who thinks she knows more than he does." So this means: 1) You need to either be smart or patient with me, and 2) i have a couple of kids whom You may have to be exposed to at some point (i hear there are shots You can take that make them more tolerable). i like industrial techno, dance club music, but i'll put up with Yours. i'm looking for a Man Who has His financial act together, a lot of self-confidence and is at least 5'10". Oh, and if one of Your favorite things to do is go camping, go have fun with that whole "dirty-feet-on-the-way-to-the-outhouse-with-no-Internet-or-TV" thing and click on the next victim/camper. i also don't do "chat" or long-distance commutes: the former method involves no effort at all, and the latter is much too expensive.
