Hello. Thanks for stopping by to read my profile. I am looking for an older Male companion for a long term relationship. This year I am offering a barely used 55 year old with little wear, no real baggage, and loads of potential. I play well with others, but have been known to run with scissors. I am shy, and the fact that anyone can see this posting is quite daunting but finding a companion is too important to foul up, and this site offers almost unimaginable possibilities for meeting the perfect companion.
I have already corresponded with many terrific Men that I otherwise would probably never have met at all .... and they all live very far away from me. Drat. I live in Sudbury, which is in northern Ontario, about 200 miles past Toronto. Sometimes it does feel like 9 months of winter and 3 months of poor tobogganing, but it's a very nice place to live. We have over a hundred thousand citizens, but there are so many lakes around the area that we all live pretty spread out.
I am single. 55 now, tall but chubby. Never had a drivers licence so I can't be your taxi driver, but I can be your navigator. Thanks to my public library I have loads of useless information, and opinions, to bore you with on those long car and bus rides. On the bright side, I love to make people laugh, and I am always looking for people to wave to. I am healthy, gainfully employed, and am at an interesting point in my life and career. However, I feel that there is something missing, and it may be "you".
For some time I have felt like I was missing out on something by not having a companion ..... even after watching coworkers go through separations and stuff I have never had second thoughts. I am an optimist. Forty years of watching original Star Trek may do that to you. I am at a point in my life where I find that I have the confidence to search for that perfect partner, and thanks to the internet it has suddenly become a real possibility.
I enjoy building and painting plastic models of armoured fighting vehicles (tanks and personnel carriers), and aircraft. I am pretty good at it. Ideally, you will share this interest, and you will already know the difference between a Sten and a Bren, a Sherman and a Firefly, and a Hawker Typhoon and a Hawker Hurricane. A steady hand with a small paint brush would be an asset.
My musical tastes include:
Roger Waters, Blue Oyster Cult, Alan Parsons,Alice Cooper, Guns & Roses, Rocky Horror Picture Show sound track, Sisters of Mercy, Pet Shop Boys, Cheap trick, Rush, The Box, Gowan, Styx.
I have read many great books over my life, but I believe that the best books that I have ever read are as follows:
- V For Vendetta
- Batman Year One
Yes, my favourite books are comic books. Don't judge these stories by the movies though. V For Vendetta was "dumbed down" for mass audiences. Watchmen is such a complex story that the movie was actually a valiant attempt to translate a symmetrical picture story into a motion picture. The author of both stories is Alan Moore, and if you are not familiar with his work you are missing something special.
Batman ? We are still waiting for a proper Batman movie. Heath Ledger really did an excellent Joker in the last movie though.
In my opinion, the "Best" motion pictures ever made are (not necessarily in order):
-The "original" Planet of the Apes (Charlton Heston - and he's pretty pissed off)
-Kelly"s Heroes (Oddball and his crew rock ! Real Shermans and fake Tiger tanks bulldozing real buildings in the old Yugoslavia.)
-The "first" Terminator movie (What a ride!)
-It"s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (Jonathan Winters, Jim Bacus, Spencer Tracy and a race to find the "Big W".)
-Monty Python and the Holy Grail ("Look at the bones !") If you did not like this movie we are unlikely to be compatible. It's true.
-HellBoy 1 and 2 (the Director is amazing and should be paid vast amounts of money to make a Doctor Strange movie. Please.)
-The Lord of the Rings trilogy (Much better than I had ever hoped, or even imagined when I devoured the books in grade five.)
-The Party (Peter Sellers)
- In my opinion, the "Best" television shows ever made are (not necessarily in order):
-South Park (Brilliant and quite brave.)
-Original" Star Trek (The revised ones with better models and special effects are very cool)
-WKRP in Cincinatti - ("I thought Turkeys could fly.")
-Batman (Frank Gorshin's Riddler, and Burgess Meredith's Penguin are classics)
I am looking for an older companion, a Skipper for my Gilligan, a Holmes for my Watson. I understand if you are shy, me too, so I'll try to suppress my big dumb grin when we are out.
I stole this from the net, but I share the sentiment.
Friendship : When you are sad I will help you get drunk and plot revenge against the sorry **stard who made you sad.
When you are blue I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.
When you smile I will know you are thinking of something that I would probably want to be involved in.
When you are scared I will rag on you about it every chance I get until you're NOT.
When you are worried I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining.
When you are confused I will try to use only little words.
When you are sick Stay the hell away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have.
When you fall I will laugh at your clumsy ass, but I'll help you up.
This is my oath ..... I pledge it to the end. 'Why?" you may ask - because you are my friend.
Thanks for reading my profile. Have a great day and I look forward to hearing from you.
