I'm a retired teacher with a young and playful spirit. Been writing poetry for about 37 years. Published 2 books and just finishing my third. My poetry is me, deep and honest!
Ask me for a link to my poetry. I have more than 400 posted online. I have 2 books published and available on Amazon with a 3rd coming out this summer.
I enjoy reading out at open mic poetry venues. I have been to dozens of them in NY's capital region over the last 15 years and hosted one at a local café here in Schenectady for 2 years. I'm considering starting a blog here as well but hoping to meet someone else who loves and lives poetry as I do. Then I will be able to remove my profile and blog.
I don't care for some of the choices the site offers. Long term dating sounds like all I want to do is date forever. Marriage sounds like all I will accept is marriage right now. I want to build a life long relationship and hope that at some point we will both feel the same, that marriage is what we both want. I don't want to be a transition man while you are getting over the last guy in your life.
I do not smoke and am not interested in spending time with someone who does. Having lost both of my parents to lung diseases associated with smoking, I do not want to go through that again. I am looking for someone to share life, not a sex partner...
I do not want to waste time with anyone who is fake. I will not send scammers money. If you are from West Africa, don't contact me. If you are looking for a ticket to America I am not interested. If you can't get to America on your own, you will need to find some fool who is dumb enough to fall for your scam. If we can't speak over the phone, I will assume it is because you are hiding something, like you are actually a guy pretending to be a woman and not really who you say you are!
If you won't verify you are who you claim to be, do not contact me. JJ
Is there a real woman on this website? I am interested in meeting a woman already living in America.
Is there an ideal match? I think imaginary women should be left to fantasy. I want a real woman who lives in the real world. A sense of humor, intelligence, honesty, and a good heart. Someone who is not superficial. I'm not listing my income for that reason. I've always liked the line "for richer or poorer" in wedding vows because I firmly believe that love has NOTHING to do with money! I want someone who believes in their heart that equality is for everyone! This is a theme in my life and poetry. HATERS are UNWELCOME in my life!!! I am a progressive Democrat to the core. Republikills need not apply! I enjoy talking politics but I don't want to fight over everything we disagree on, so if you voted for Trump, chances are good that we won't get along.
I'm looking for a caring woman who will walk with me in peace marches.
Read my poetry and you will see this is me, not just a profile of words designed to rope you in.
If you like what I just said then there really is such a thing as an ideal match, So strike one now and light my fire!
I'm a mixed bag... English, Irish, German, Gypsy, and a few other European breeds... i firmly believe that all human life came out of Africa between 50,000 - 30,000 years ago. We can debate it if you insist but even if you believe we all descended fr
I grew up in a Catholic family and attended Catholic School, but I have since expanded my horizons.
