Of shoes—and ships—and sealing wax—
Of cabbages—and kings—"

Goodbye, my friends.
Music currently playing in the Radio Station of My Mind: "Stairway to Heaven" - Led Zepplin
I'm me, an average size guy. I'm 5'11' and 3/4", so any shoes make me 6 foot.
Brown eyes and grey hair (that used to be brown).
I've two children, a son and a daughter, both gone from the nest.
People consider me "laid back", others say I have a "60's thing going on". So I'm not big on the drama aspect, however, that comment leads to...
I've been on stage a little bit (West Side Story, 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, Rocky Horror) and enjoyed acting very much. I hope to be in more productions in the future. I'm told I have a clear voice that's easy to listen to. (update 9/09 I may have a role in the upcoming production of Sound of Music. Keep fingers crossed for me!)
I work as sales rep in a pharmaceutical company.
I joke a lot and enjoy making people laugh. My Lady will need to have a BIG sense of humor. I feel that if you don't laugh...you don't live and I WILL make you laugh.
I've my own home, a rock house in the mountains.
I enjoy reading and have my own library (over 4435 volumes and growing).
Music is constantly in my head, I'm ususally humming, whistling or singing some part of whatever song is going through my head at the time.
My taste in music leans to classic Rock-n-Roll (60's 70' 80's), but I've liked songs in other genres, as well.
Fairly good in a conversation. Good listener. Less than great speller. lol.
I've been divorced for about 10 years now, and yes, I have had a couple of relationships in that time.
Am I looking for the PERFECT woman? NO! Perfection is boring. I want a woman who has some flaws. Who has some feelings. Who has compassion and some passions. I want a woman I can trust. I'm a "one guy/one gal" kind of guy. I'll be true to you so you'll need to be true to me. I'm not looking for a "Barbie", I prefer a real woman. However, that being said, I do prefer women who are thin, athletic, average or a few extra pounds, to use the POF definitions.
Also, sorry, but no sex on the first date. I have my standards. As I hope you do.
Am I a perfect Man? OH Gosh no! Not by a long shot. I have fallacies, I err in trusting people too much, I talk too much, I talk too little. I remember everything and I forget everything. I scratch itches. I sometimes say the right thing. I sometimes say the wrong thing. I play too hard or I play too little.
Besides, if you're 'perfect', you'll never learn from your mistakes. LOL, and I've learned soooooooo much!
In short....I'm a human. Just like you. (Except I'm, like...male...an' all.)
I'm a Southern boy, raised to be polite and respectful of women.
I've learned that politeness and a smile will make many peoples day.
And if I may paraphrase something I see a lot of you ladies saying: I'm not looking for someone I can live with...I looking for someone I can't live without!
"A human being is part of the whole called by us universe , a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty... We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive." - Albert Einstein
One last datum: You've heard of "armchair quarterbacks"? I consider myself an 'armchair scientist'. I flounder in the math, but I can 'see' the concept and it's effects. There have been, and will continue to be, many discussions at my house about black holes, quantum physics and where does your lap go when you stand up? Along with other, similar, exotic things. So if you want to join in, I'd be glad to hear your theories.
Okay, yeah, I'm a 'nerd'. Have been all my life.
Thanks for reading my profile.
Drop me a line, I'll answer. (Hey, if you got this far....I might have a chance!)
The above is a work in progress...(as am I).

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First date? Okay, imaginary first date.....
You decide to meet. (Yay!) We had decided on dinner. I try to be funny and entertaining while at the same time trying to make sure I don't drop food on me or spill my drink on you. You makes lots of eye contact, laugh at the right times, and are very funny yourself. Time goes by WAY too fast. It's time to go. We leave and I walk you to your car. I take your hand and kiss it lightly. I look into your eyes and tell you I had a wonderful time. You steps forward and give me a light hug and a soft kiss on the cheek. Smiling slightly, you get into your car and drive off. As I watch your tail lights dwindle in the distance I sigh and think of you. I turn to my car and as I reach into my pocket I find a note you slipped in there while you were hugging me. The note says............... (NOW comes the hard part ladies, what would YOU write on the note?)
