My self-summary
Hi. Thank you for visiting DGE80.

I just found out that OKC and Match are owned by the same company.

As we prepare to browse for companions-cum-partners with mutual interests, I'll begin by sharing that I'm gregarious and enjoy the company of smart, curious and funny women. Please, don't be jealous.

More ingredients:
• I'm smarter than most but not as smart as you.

• I am easy like a Sunday morning and can rock like Saturday night.

• A Colorado native and a Hoosier by education (BA English; an ironic MBA), I have been legally divorced (and actually single) 18 years. I *have* dated in the interim ;) While I don't have children, I regularly attain Cool Uncle status and "have a lot of young" in me, according to one of my nephews.

• Spiritual rather than religious: My karma ran over my dogma.

• I am a marketing professional for a small tech firm.

• I enjoy Shakespeare and game-winning touchdowns. The Chagall Windows in Chicago move me, some tattoos can amaze me (I have none): high+low brow—just not middlebrow.

• When not performing, I attend live music events—from concert halls and opera houses to dive bars—fine dining, movies, theater and art museums. I am not a "sports" fan, but I follow American football (so, a "sport" fan) and IU basketball.

That's a decent, mostly healthy yet slightly decadent starter summary, right? Meanwhile, I wonder if my expectations when a much younger man—sharing my life, creating an amazing history short on boredom and long on wonder—merely reflect a younger man's idealism. Ah, such is the life of a romantic. And while I admit that I may turn my head toward your face or figure (consider: photos on dating sites would be unnecessary otherwise), I continue to desire the hallmarks of my own personality—a bright mind, warm humor, earthy sensuality and natural generosity—to be reflected in yours. You dance, oblivious to concern and with delight in your motion.

The stats I share and questions I answer here are ballpark summaries, as are your. You and I both know and understand there is so much more beyond the surface of a browser screen, 72dpi photos and our keyboards.
What I’m doing with my life
getting my 10,000 hours in musical instrument practice; mitigating the influence Zen reading half a lifetime ago has on my life today; remodeling my house; being optimistic enough to post a profile on OKC ;)
I’m really good at
• being a great dinner / travel companion. I am open to the world and enjoy the experiences engagement with it provides.
• being an entertaining, performing musician
• using my hands
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I'm friendly, good humored and make an effort to make a connection. According to one friend, she thought I "should use my power for good, not evil"—cruelly, she didn't share with me what that power is. And probably my eyes, with the ice/wolf blue fired by Sagittarian mischief ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am a creative, perhaps even new-Renaissance, man: the list for any of these categories would be provocative, though long.

Nowadays, I tend to read speculative fiction (Neal Stephenson, Margaret Atwood) or skills-enhancing nonfiction.

I enjoy indie-esque or foreign films, though a space opera or super hero blockbuster can be fun.

I loop podcasts, Queen, Muse, Led Zep, QOTSA, Cohen, Jeff Buckley, kt tunstall and Beethoven over my iTunes when I clean my house.

Lasagna, angel food cake, Gran Marnier, Oberon and mangos.
The six things I could never do without
cool water, first blossoms in spring, fresh air drawn deep into my lungs, opportunities for adventure, access to caffeine, a song
I spend a lot of time thinking about
OKC and Match being owned by the same corporation
On a typical Friday night I am
considering what "typical Friday night" means. I stay home, I see bands, I play gigs, I go to movies (w or w/o dinner), I work on freelance projects, I hit the road to create a weekend worth remembering (and, perhaps, even regretting), I update my resumes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was a stripper and cartoonist for the university paper
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–80
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you're curious and desire to know more about me as a man and a person.

While my experience w OKC has been, well, OK, I'm not a fan of the poorly worded, ridiculously limited or "would you rather" questions. I tend not to answer (or privately answer) them, so *of course* message me for direct, private admissions ;)
