I have a very diverse background, and eclectic interests. I have worked as a telecom engineer for many years, so I am foremost, a techie. I have also worked at a residential home for people with severe mental illnesses. I have also been a truck driver, customer service rep, repair technician, shoe salesperson, and nurse’s aide. How’s that for variety!
Personality wise, I am very compassionate, respectful, gentle, honest, and a good listener. I believe all people should be equally valued, and treated with respect. The wealthy, powerful, and/or beautiful people seem to get a lot of attention, if not always respect, and have many resources at their disposal. The old, fat, ugly, and/or non-conformist crowd are at the least ignored, if not actively ushered into out-of-the-way places, where they can not so easily be an embarrassment to the first. These last are the ones who struggle against ridicule, make themselves as “invisible” as they can to those who would bully and take advantage of them by force, and are they who would strive their entire lives just for the necessities of life, and maybe a few little luxuries now and then, if they are lucky enough, or work hard enough to get them. As a member of the second crowd, I sympathize and empathize with those who have had it rough. I also do my best to see the good in all life, and respect, rather than envy or despise, the ones who are blessed enough to hold the wealth, wield the power, or enjoy the attention and fame of celebrity. I love all life, plants, animals, the planet, and the wondrous universe. I have been chosen to care for two beautiful, and very lazy, kitty cats. I even do my best to try to love insects, even wasps, hornets, and other creepy-crawlies. That’s who I am, or at least aspire to be.
I like Sci-Fi, love progressive rock music, and enjoy conversation about off-beat or esoteric subjects.
I am out of work now, due to medical reasons. (If you really want to know, the doctors have diagnosed me with Multifocal Acquired Motor Axonopathy, MAMA for short, a sub-type of Multifocal Motor Neuropathy, MMN. And also, Progressive Muscular Atrophy, PMA. Now aren’t you glad you didn’t ask?) I have damage to my motor nerves so that I have lost most of the use of my left hand and arm. Also my right leg is particularly weak, and my sense of balance is way off. So, sometimes I fall down and have a difficult time getting back up again. The nerve damage has also caused muscle atrophy, my left hand/arm being the worst. As an added side effect, I am usually terribly fatigued, and often feel weak and shaky. I always have a healthy dose of pain, most everywhere, but that is not the worst with which I struggle. So, I have good days and bad days. On a good day I can get out and take care of myself as far as daily activities are concerned, even though I often use a cane for balance. On a bad day I cannot bring myself to leave the house, and sit on the couch in my man-cave all day long. I am now receiving Social Security disability as my source of income since I can no longer work a steady job. You may wonder why I am putting all this in my introduction. Well, I have had to explain all this many times to friends and people I meet, so I find it easier to place it here, to answer a few of the most popular questions normally addressed to me by new acquaintances.
Now, even though I often am not very active, I still get lonely…So… I am always interested in meeting people, especially female, near me who have unusual interests, or like to talk about interesting or offbeat subjects. I especially like women who love to curl up on the couch, snuggle, and watch a movie! I am very laid-back, relaxed, and affectionate.
I also own a KORG N364 music workstation. I have never taken piano lessons, but I love playing with synthesizers. It does not get as much use these days, as most of my time is spent on the computer.
I am a hermit by nature, probably because I am a Virgo, which is related to the Hermit Tarot card. I love staying indoors in my “man-cave” with my computer, TV, and air conditioning. Where are all the women who are homebodies, who like to stay home and cuddle on the couch with a good movie, and good snacks (maybe desert too)?
Don’t get me wrong, I can be persuaded to go out to dinner, movies, or other activities. It is much more fun with the right person. Will I ever find such a person? Are you maybe the one who can give me a good reason to leave my cave? I am still being hopeful that someone suitable will come along before I am too old to enjoy the company.
In addition to seeking a companion to share life with, I am also seeking to expand my network of open-minded, spiritual people. I believe we can best improve the world by improving ourselves first. If you are on the path towards enlightenment, feel free to join me on the journey!
