2022 Aug 12 cropped datedBRIEFLY: Ecosocialist, 72, seeks soulmate (60s or 70s) to share life, and particularly political activism. Nukes and climate change are bringing us much closer to extinction than most people realize. We need a lot more talking, understanding, caring, sharing. Also I like sci-fi movies. I can’t see “likes,” so write to me. Nashville only please.

LONGER:

Like in the movie “Don’t Look Up,” most people currently are unconcerned about the imminent extinction of our species. Both money parties are making things worse; they just tell different lies. But I am still doing the little I can to promote a great cultural change. It’s a spiritual calling, but nothing like conventional religions; what I find in the bible is socialism (Acts 4:32 and 1 Tim 6:10) and avoiding church (Matt 6:5). I’d be better with a partner, but bourgeois reformists need not apply: Our way of life needs complete replacement, not just a few tweaks.

I do lots of reading and blogging, trying to increase my own and others’ understanding. I wear my big peace medallion everywhere I go. And when the weather is tolerable I sometimes hold up a big sign beside a road (see photos). I’d like it better if YOU held a sign beside mine and talked with me. I need a companion for meetings and marches, a coauthor for leaflets and videos, a partner for late-night wrestling with big ideas. None of my communiqués has gone viral yet, and sometimes it all feels pointless; maybe YOU are the missing ingredient?

I am, like Greta Thunberg, a bit obsessive and aspergerish. We aspies are weak on small talk, and the first to leave a party. We’re like Vulcans, but Star Trek didn’t get us quite right: The logical thing to do with emotions is not repress them, but try to understand them. Not everyone is cut out to be an aspie’s partner.

Saving the world comes first, but it’s only part-time. When I’m not ranting about apocalypse, I’m just a guy: Divorced, vegan, INFP, gentle, shy, introverted, lonely, more Lennon than Lenin, sometimes funny but mostly serious. Beard and hair negotiable after the third date; until then I’m going for the Albert Einstein look. When I feel inspired I enjoy writing, as this essay demonstrates. I sing, badly, in the shower. I like sci-fi, sherlocks, a few other movies, occasionally a modern art gallery. For Halloween I’m “Super Leafleteer,” with helmet, cape, and political leaflets (see photo), but I don’t fly.

I’m a retired math professor, but I’ve lost interest in that. There is great beauty in math for those who can see it, but I finally understood rather late that the most important questions in our lives are not at all mathematical.

And here are some negatives. I believe in cooperation, not competition, so I don’t care for sports. Nature is nice, but I prefer plumbing and wi-fi. I’m not fond of barking dogs. I’ve finally begun to age. I’ve given up restaurants and travel, for reasons of health, ecosystem, and my wallet – and as Proust said, “The only true voyage of discovery … would be not to visit strange lands but to possess other eyes.”

Friends first, but I’m looking for more than friends eventually. Kissing and hugging are particularly important to me. I used to think that part was obvious, but it turns out that different people have different needs. If you think we might be good together, write to me.

Version of 2023 Feb 5. I’m 6 feet tall, 72 years old, straight, male. I’ve posted the text above and similar text on a few dating sites (POF and Okcupid both have all the essentials free). But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.
