Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ok, summarize 30+ years of experience in a box. Right...
Intellectually: In a good place with my life. Happy, explorative,
inquisitive and I don't think I'm any more broken than the next
person. I'm always seeking out new experiences, new perspectives
and new things to learn. I've been told that I'm very generous,
caring and loving. I'm also a fairly drama free person.
Spiritually: I'm not religious, but I believe in treating people
the way I would hope to be treated. I respect the fact that some
people are religious, I just don't need it and don't subscribe to
any specific belief that is beyond knowing. But I do get annoyed
when religious folks try to rub it in your face.
Physically: I'm not short at 5'10" and I'm in good shape. I love to
run, bike, and hit the gym. Used to do yoga and boxing, but ran out
of time for those. All of my features are in good working order and
I'm checked for worms regularly. ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Experiencing polyamory. Oh shit! There it is! Well I can’t take it
back now because my backspace key is broken. It’s probably better
that this is upfront anyhow.
The question should be what am I not doing with my life. I work
hard and play hard. I won’t bore you with the work stuff although
you’ll probably pick up on my bad list making habit. The play stuff
• Brewing Beer
• Running (because of the beer)
• Trying to get back into making music again
• Raising 2 kids (that’s play sometimes…)
• Gardening (I maybe should have had the backspace for this
• Travelling, but not as much as I would like (kids…)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Um, yeah... Backspace key... Avoiding this one...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think that I project more machismo or toughness than I really
intend to project as corny as that might sound. I'm actually think
I'm a pretty nice and caring person, but every time I shave my head
(even though I'm not balding at all), I get far more apologies and
politeness from men and smiles from women. It's funny how much
difference hair can make.

Food: Chocolate, I actually just live on Chocolate. Wait, that's
not true; I live on bacon too. Actually, there's a chocolate bacon
candy bar from my old hometown but I've said too much now. Now the
vegans and vegetarians won't date me. Damn that broken backspace
key! It probably doesn't help that I was pretty much a vegetarian
as I was living with one for years. But I ate her... Oh crap, I did
it again!!! I need a new computer. Who even says "computer"
anymore?!?!? Crap, the fact that I put "computer" in quotes will
probably anger someone. Oh well, I can't please everyone. Or can I?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hmmm... How to answer this one. With the trite "air", "water",
"farting"... Wait, what? Backspace...
I'm just not gonna play this game. I'm a "more is better" person, I
can admit that about myself and realize that this list of six will
be way longer. Unless of course there's a zombie apocalypse. There,
now I'm as cool as everyone else on this site with a zombie
apocalypse reference. Booyah!!! Did I just say booyah! Yes I did. F
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much Burning Man is going to really suck this year. I mean
really, it's just going to suck!!! You really shouldn't go. You've
got the crowds and the noise and the blinky lights and the stuff
that just can't be understood. Forget about it. Wait, what did you
say? You've never been? Well shit then go before they run out of
things to burn!!!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's no such thing as a typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My backspace key really isn't broken.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Someone independent and open minded to the idea of polyamory. I
have a very solid marriage that this will not supercede. I'm really
looking for a somewhat consistent connection with someone that
might want to go out weekly and have fun. And if you're really into
polyamory, please don't be someone that is trying to make a
political statement with it. I don't need to be super discreet, but
I don't need extended family and coworkers in on the news yet. I
haven't really gotten there yet and I'm not sure that I ever will.
Only our good friends and select coworkers know.
