My self-summary
I should put more in here, but I'm out of the country right now. I'll be skipping around on OKC between England, Germany, and the DC/VA area. Maybe Boston as well. Back to the States for good next summer but likely to visit all those other locations over the course of the year...start time June.

I am in no rush (obviously) for a physical relationship and need to figure a few things out on where I stand with relationships. If you ask me a question I will be 100% honest bc being anything otherwise is not what I want to be.

I've been successful with my career and most other pursuits in life. My life has been more interesting than I set out to make it...some days I believe I don't really understand how driven I am. I could be considered a recovering workaholic...could be, but some days I don't think I am actually in the recovery stage.

I want to find someone who can help me stop the insanity. Humor and a great smile, personality, and a relatively in shape body will go far. I take great care of myself physically...you should too. That does not mean you work out excessively or have ripped abs and a model's body. (That's it for now)
What I’m doing with my life
Serving overseas, thinking (great) thoughts, and trying to put the finishing touches on a project that should provide a nice transition to my next career...though I won't call it a career as much as a great paying intellectual pursuit.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh at the humor of the situation. I'm the man you want to be with when something unfortunate, awkward, or bizarre happens. (Or whenever you just want to laugh) I was venting (actually it was creatively channeling the awkwardness of a long professional meeting) to a friend the other day and she was laughing her ass off.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall, dark and handsome?

Maybe my contagious and ever present smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Catch-22, Siddhartha, The Great Gatsby, Freakonomics, New York, Hitch-22, Brideshead Revisited, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. I read a lot, so there are likely 10+ more books that I would say are my favorites. I work hard to pick great reads.

My tastes in movies run the spectrum. However I am not a fan of horror movies. Baraka, Vanilla Sky, Her, Bourne Identity series, Bladerunner, X-Men, The Day After Tomorrow, Amelie, Dazed and Confused, ...and where my childhood movie watching first really started - Star Wars. I recently watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and realized my life has been full of adventure throughout that I don't dream of adventures bc I don't have to.

I rarely come across a style of food I do not enjoy. I prefer to eat healthy, but enjoy the diversion into the relatively unhealthy. To wit shish-kabob goose liver in Tel Aviv. So ridiculously good but not good for the cholesterol levels.

I will listen to most music except for any form of country and western that discusses the merits of a pick-up truck, a hunting dog, or drinking cheap beer. If stranded on a deserted island (with a plentiful source of solar power for my iPod) I would thrive on Dave Matthews Band, The Bare Naked Ladies (who I just found out are ALL back together again), and Motley Crue. (Yeah, I still don't understand that last one either...I'm a refined man but somehow need my metal). I know there are 10 more groups I would gladly accept onto my iPod...I'm just stating the bare essentials.

(And if you recognized that I switched the order of music and food, two points for you)
The six things I could never do without
My daughter
Coffee/espresso based drink
Something to read (or to write about)
A challenge
My mind
Friends and family (or Framily as the clowns on Madison Ave have coined it)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Transitions, my past relationships and future plans.

What's beyond all the known solar systems.

Why, for some, religion is a reason for war. What a waste
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering from the week - I run a pretty fast and intense pace most weeks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't mind watching a chick flick.

I don't normally use the term, "chick".

A female friend told me once that I shared my feelings better than she did.

(Wow, you just got 3 for 1)

(damn..maybe that 3rd one really is true)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–46
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You want to start with a friendship and go from there...or you just want to bounce some thoughts off on me. I've always wanted to have a friend who I could say (or write) the most outlandish things or, at times, naughty thoughts, and not need to worry about judgment or hurt feelings.

If you wish OKC would use the phrase, "Women who like Men" instead of "Girls who like guys."
