Currently, I'm mostly here for the forums.
They're fun and all the best people are there.
POF says I'm too short. At 5'7 and 3/4" tall, I'm sure they're wrong.
Ahh... they mean words.
Trust me, I'm never short on words although I may only mutter them under my breath.
I like to meet for coffee. It fits in with my regular day which I start with the elixer of life - caffeine.
I'd rather do something than just go out to eat... take a walk, check out a swap meet, even go fishing though I don't know how very well. I will bait my own hook though - I'm not horribly squeamish.
Classical - I mean Haydn, Bach, Chopin, and Mozart classical - is my favorite type of music though classical rock is pretty good and, living in Texas, I've learned to enjoy country/western as well.
My hair is short and mostly brown. Interspersed with grey. I often think about coloring my hair but simply can’t decide on a shade.
I favor a 'natural look'. In other words, I don't wear a lot of makeup.
I don't enjoy going to bars or other crowded places. Nor do I know how to dance or play pool. I wouldn't object to learning though. As long as you don't gloat too much when you win.
National Geographic and History Channel-type television programs dealing with subjects like archaeology, history, natural science are fun. As for movies, I go rarely but when I do go, it's usually with my 16-year-old son. Due to him, I've developed a taste for lots of CGI, car chases, and explosions.
I have a lot of books - dealing with subjects like archaeology, history and natural science. And romance novels - but I try not to read those in public.
I'm retired and prefer to be thrifty most of the time. Still, there are occasions deserving a little extravagance - like vacation. Currently, I'm planning on getting a van conversion or camper and traveling all over the USA in a year or two.
Right now I'm pet-less but I like both dogs and cats. UPDATE: My son just got a puppy — so I don’t think I count as petless anymore.
Eventually, I'd like a long-term monogamous relationship.
In my opinion, the most important characteristic a man can have is integrity.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'd prefer to meet within a few days.
