Quick to Laugh, Slow to Anger, Easy to Please. Hard to Impress.
"Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.” Erica Jong
I'd just read something I'd like to share. We're all here because of a failed relationship, divorce, or in my case, death. So, this is good: "In three words I can sum up everything I have learned about life...it goes on." Robert Frost...I have also learned one of the secrets of life is to fall down 7 times and get up 8.
I like to laugh, dance, go to the beach, travel, dine out-looking for someone like me.(sound familiar?blah, blah, blah, blah, blah said in a singsong tone)
I'm a self-motivated individual. I'm an emotionally, physically, and financially stable man. I like to be doing things. Gardening home projects, and sports (actually doing them) name a few. Of course, I like to veg, too. Antiques Road Show, watching the News Hour, reading fiction and all news (but Fox,) and seeing a good movie at home or in a theater (it would be nice to see a mature movie out again) sate my more sedentary moments. Integrity, honesty, and morality best describe my values. I am spiritual, but do not require the formality of church. It seems I’m a fair weather Catholic...but, I've found that the little Irish Priest in our Parish is a hoot.....likin' what I'm hear-n! I am comfortable being me and I strive to live every day to its full potential. I am reasonably well versed on local, national, and world affairs in aspects of economic, social, and political events. I like to travel, though; I must admit that, I look at golf courses in travel destinations. I also like to stay at home. I love the smell of fresh cut grass (I mow way too much)...I like a nicely plowed drive (come the dog days of August...I'll be missing this..) I like the look of my lawn, in the fall, when the leaves are freshly picked up. I like the look of our freshly cleaned pool (can't wait for that either.)
Someone else recently told me “there are basically 2 types of people in the world-givers and takers-and Irish you are a giver. The takers don’t know what they are-they think they are givers.” Which means that I can only classify myself as a giver based on someone else’s opinion.
Hey, we’re all like over the age of 10, aren’t we? I've accumulated some beautiful luggage over the years...so, why don't we see if we've got matching luggage? Someone recently told me, in an unsolicited e-mail, my children are a liability. To those who think this way...I throw my proverbial shoe at you(for those of you that don't know-it's a great Muslim insult)...my kids are my greatest asset...they keep me young, involved, and grounded....and sometimes drive me insane.
It's funny...I see a lot of profiles that say "I know what I want in that other person." But, I find that, I know some of what I want, some of what I'll accept, and exactly what I do not wish. So, there's a lot of grey area there...No married, cheating, deceptive, man hating, drug/alcohol abusing women need apply (please be over your ex.) I'm looking for someone to complement, and to complement me. I'm also looking for a mature woman, healthy lifestyle. I’m looking for an honest, intelligent, engaged in life, active, socially conscious. and reasonably attractive woman who's roughly between the ages of 55 and 65.I’m very sorry to announce that I’ll no longer be responding to profiles without pictures. It’s not only because I’m shallow, but I want to make sure I haven't seen your mug shot on “America’s Most Wanted.” . I'm just kidding, but, maybe I'm not.

Here's a tip for all yous who try the 'Meet Me" feature. If you actually look at my profile, and then hit the "want to meet" button, I know you want to communicate. Otherwise, it's a waste of time.
