Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
While I appreciate it, I'm not currently looking to meet other
guys; I felt it was important to be honest with potential
First, I'll be 43 in June, but I like to think I don't act like it;
the wonderful people in my life keep me feeling younger and more
active than ever.
As mid-life crises go, so far, mine has been full of adventure and
exploration, pushing through my own self-imposed boundaries and
perceived limitations. My world has evolved from collars and ties
to tutus and glitter, from khaki to rainbows.
I work out daily (although weekends often get a pass), and try to
maintain a healthy diet, I have no desire to return to a life spent
on the couch, shut away from the world, growing fatter and
I participate in and help organize several annual events in Dallas,
including the "No Pants Subway Ride - Dallas", and "Brides of
March", as well as Santa Rampage and an annual Halloween party
which shall remain unnamed.
I would love to meet people who enjoy things simply because it
makes them smile and laugh; if you're fond of burlesque or circus
and sideshow performers, we'll probably get along very well.
I should probably mention that I'm a liberal, but I'm also a
veteran. And a Texan. So...yeah.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Maintaining a professional career in the daylight while and
enjoying a fulfilling life outside of the office.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Photography. One of my images from Burning Man 2013 was a finalist
in the Smithsonian Magazine photography contest.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There's probably a camera in my hand or on my hip.
Or I'm wearing sparkly underwear.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite film is "Blade Runner", but I'll always love the movies
I grew up with, particularly "Star Wars".
I really don't watch television anymore; since I moved downtown, it
sits there like a big black void unless I have friends over. The
downside of this, is not being able to contribute to discussions
about the latest episode of "American Horror Story".
My musical tastes are growing constantly, there's a time and a
place for everything.
And finally, food... I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, but
still appreciate a great cheeseburger and fries. Eating in
moderation and focusing on nutrition has improved my health, both
physically and mentally.
But I'll always have a softspot for breakfast, eggs and bacon, and
a stack of pancakes, especially when making them for friends.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm guessing we're ignoring Mr Maslow here...
1. My cats. If I have to take up two slots, I would. Kitties are
2. A sense of humor.
3. A love for exploration and new experiences.
4. Adult slumber parties with snuggling & cuddling (everyone
needs human interaction).
5. A camera.
6. The Internet or another form of immediate global connectivity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What can I do to make the world a brighter, more enjoyable place?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There are no typical Fridays, one night it's a burlesque show,
another night drinks with friends on a roof.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an atheist, but I'm not a militant atheist; If religion or
faith provide you with comfort, I'm happy for you.
It is not however something that works for me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Any of this sounds fun and exciting to you:
Burlesque, body suspension (hanging from hooks), Burning Man,
slumber parties, Sunday brunch with bottomless mimosas, running
around town in your underwear.
Alternatively, if you find any of that to be offensive, you should
probably just move on to the next guy.
