Short, fat, slightly balding, definitely graying, lefty-liberal author, 53, seeking kind, gentle, happy, and joyful Amazon for whom he may read his romantic-fantasy novel and show his etchings... if only he had any etchings to show.
Did you smile at my bad joke? I hope so. I love a good laugh and hope you do too.
It's too bad they didn't have other options for personality. Renaissance man maybe? I have so many interests, none of these adjectives quite cover it.
In the area of likes and such, the list shows what I enjoy doing most. It's not everything, however, so who knows? I'm not into hiking, camping, and all that Grizzly Adams jazz. My idea of roughing it is a Motel 6 with a black-and-white TV and a broken lamp. And if you're saying you like camping just to appeal to the guys here, you can drop it with me. I won't tell anybody. ;o)
I tend to be more on the brainy side of life. Give me a good movie (think art and foreign movies); a fun, stimulating book; a nice dinner out; an evening at a comedy club having a good laugh; or an evening hanging out, talking, doing nothing in particular, and I'm groovy.
I do not believe in God, Jesus, religion, or any of that. No Secret, none of that. So, it's probably best for you to pass if you are strongly religious or feel it is your duty to convert a heathen such as me. I am what used to be called a Positivist, a person with a science-based view of and philosophy for life. I observe that nature is energy (we can prove this), that we are part of nature (also provable), and therefore are a part of this energy. This energy is a lot of things, including aware of itself. Don't think so? Just look in the mirror. We are energy (a fact), and we are aware of ourselves and the things around us... somewhat. I believe this awareness impels us to experience the same energy/awareness in other things, including each other, which explains why we are reading each other's profiles on POF. ;o)
Super creative with a rich, sometimes humorous, sometimes serious personality. I seek more of the same, more of the different, and especially more of the joy and laughter. What are you seeking?
Do we really have the time for a relationship? People are so busy these days, making this an important question for me. A few women I've been out with simply did not have the time for a bathroom break let alone a relationship. It's a question that forces us to look deep inside and decide where we place our priorities. Do we have the time? Being a people person, I do and will make the time. Do you have the time? Will you make the time?
Games? I don't play them. That said, I'm good at spotting them, grew excellent at playing them and inventing a few new ones, and hated every minute of them. Games are for two-year-old control freaks. That's not me. So, I've been on maybe 10 dates since the 90s, hoping that as my generation grew older and more mature, the games would go away. Have they? My last date suggests no, and she is blocked. Why the games? Why? Is it because we baby boomers don't know any other way? How's that for a depressing thought? Let's prove my depressing thought wrong. Life is over too quickly to waste such valuable time.
Let's leave the games to the control freaks. Instead, let's laugh, have a good time, get to know each other, and find things in common. You know, let's be friends and see where that leads.
Thank you for reading my profile. Best wishes!
First dates tend to involve coffee and conversation. They are also Dutch. For me, first dates are for getting a sense for who we are together. Sometimes, first dates are duds. Sometimes, first dates are H-O-T. Sometimes, first dates are nuclear fusion. There's no way to know unless people have them. I'm open to ideas. What do you have in mind?
