Hmmm, haven't worked on my resume in quite some time. So, let's start with the outline:
> I’m fortunate to have a job that I’m very passionate about; I work in the environmental field, specializing in coastal shoreline stabilization. I travel extensively along the east coast from Labrador to Virginia.
> I’m not a fitness fanatic but I like to stay active via hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing; basically any outdoor activity
> NYC, Montreal, Quebec and Newport are perennial favorites for cities to visit and explore
> I remember birthdays and special occasions - limit is 2. After all, I am a guy
> Enjoy the performing arts and am fortunate to be in an area surrounded by excellent theater companies
> I get my news from PBS and The Economist with commentary provided by the patrons of the local diner
> My life stretches far and wide in terms of interests, people and ideas. I am open to new concepts and experiences and I believe I possess the intellectual curiosity and emotional fortitude to explore them
> I can iron, but just the collar, then I wear a sweater
> While on the subject of laundry, just discovered fabric softener.
> Enjoy fine dining, especially Italian and sushi - but not at the same time. I’m very comfortable in the kitchen, locally famous for my stews and chowders
> Music interests vary; seen concerts ranging from BSO to Marylin Manson to Wayne Newton-stop laughing, he wasn’t that bad. Guaranteed, you are now singing Danke Schoen! My next “must see” concerts are BSO at Tanglewood, Sarah Brightman and the Aerosmith tour - if Joe Perry and Steve Tyler can get along.
> I like to keep life simple but do not confuse simplicity with sophistication
> I drink OJ straight from the container
> I will let you make your own judgments regarding quick wit, great personality, young looking 63 (thanks to great genes), funny and my female friends say I'm pretty easy to look at
> Simply stated: I count my blessings, seek new joy and live as happily as I can every day. I would love to settle down with a treasure of a gal-subtly humored, caring, easy going-someone who has a lot going on in her life and can juggle those demands comfortably and has a similar appetite for life. Even when I sense the chemistry is great, I like to begin these things slowly; let’s become friends, then best friends and let natural progression move us forward.
Now for the possible deal breakers:
> If you’re looking for a 24/7 relationship, I’m not your guy. I am passionate about my work and the required travel. Also, I’m blessed to be surrounded by family and friends; so please understand I have demands on me.
> I’m not looking for an email, penpal, phone, Twitter, FaceBook or text relationship.
> I struggle with sharing the remote
> Please be a non-smoker and please be height/weight proportionate. I’m sorry if that offends anyone, but I’m being honest.
Warning: if you can’t hold onto a conversation about more than what Brad and Angelina did last summer, we’re not the best match. On the other hand, if you know what you want, and aren’t afraid of having a ton of fun while going after it, send me a message and let’s chat…
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My idea of a great first date would be to steal a car and drive to Nashville. Radio is CRANKED. I'll drive, you keep your eyes peeled for cops. And then we'll switch. Truck stops for a quick meal....lots of coffee.......no sleep. Perfect! Lots of time for great conversation. Or, can we be companions in silence?
