GENERAL NOTE: POF DOES have forums, but they opted to hide them from new people for a while, so just in case, I put links in to reach them in case they do that again. I write there, so if you want to see what I and other people have to say, go to http://forums.plentyoffish.com and join in. Amusingly, I am now unable to post anything there for unknown reasons.
Also, I have tried to update my pix, but the site allows people who don't like you, to get pictures removed. I am grayer now, and have shaved my facial hair, just FYI. Since the system threatens to prevent me from uploading any pictures at all, if I guess wrong again about what will or wont be torpedoed, I am afraid to try.
Unique guy will need a unique gal.
I'm a writer, a technician, an historian (you can tell, because I say AN historian), a father, a friend to several fuzzy creatures (non-human), and a musician/songwriter.
Although I'm near perfect when it comes to many of the values that
women say they want in a man (honest, communicative, gentle, brave, thrifty,
etc), I also fall short in areas like high income (not unless my novel actually
gets finished and sells); house-beautiful lifestyle (I'm clean, not neat); and
adventurous dating (things involving lots of money, like traveling overseas,
or regular formal dinners are out).
My children are all grown and gone (for the moment), however one is severely handicapped, and under constant professional care. I will only live nearby him, so that I can see to him for as long as I last.
I know I have a slim chance of finding the woman I want/desire at all, but I
REEEEEELY want to keep trying.
If you like artists and can understand the artistic approach to life, you
might find me as delightful as I try to be. I look for a light in the eyes
that means you often laugh at the nuttiness that the world pretends is serious,
but still love deeply and patiently. Physically, I'm attracted to people
thinner than me, no offense intended to those not so (one can only discover what one is attracted to, not CHOOSE it). I'm open to friendship with just about anyone, of course.
Minor unimportant tidbit: I only mark people as favorites if I like their Forum posts. If I like the profile, I will bookmark it, you'll never know. Tired of the confusion and Forum questions about "why did he/she favorite me but doesn't contact me."
Oh and I'm very VERY good at massages, AND I do feet. And no, that does NOT mean I have a foot fetish, it means I can rub feet and make you feel good. It doesn't mean I "DO" feet. That could lead to a VERY unique case of athletes foot!
I should also mention... Cartoon Character I MOST Identify With: Daffy Duck!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I hate the idea of DATE. It makes me feel like I have to perform with someone
else who also has to perform, and neither person gets to go back to real life
until afterward. I'd rather have a more relaxed getting to know process,
starting with email or other conversation that lets each of us get some idea
about each other, then move up to meeting face-to-face in the daytime to do
something simple or even functional together. Walking the streets of Georgetown,
shopping, something simple that let's us get a feel for each other and talk a
bit. Then, if things seem good, we can do all kinds of stuff, concerts, live
plays, badminton, arm wrestling.
