Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Professional with a doctorate and a wicked sense of humor seeks the
yin to my yang. I have worked hard to achieve success, top flight
education, international travel and working with some of America's
best and brightest, but still seek that intelligent, refined beauty
to compliment and share it all with me. I seek far more than just a
date - I seek a true partner in this journey. I seek someone smart,
loving and mannered with a heart full of love and compassion. I
have so much to give and I hope you do too. There are adventures to
be had and quiet moments to share. Aren't you ready for a real man
for a change?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a highly unusual career that I enjoy - I'm a paleontologist,
I dig for dinosaurs for a living. Yeah, seriously.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Spatial stuff - navigation, scale, stuff like that. No, it isn't a
guy-ego thing, I have a weirdly good sense of spatial
relationships. Now *human* relationships, I'm an amateur. ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall and I'm outgoing so I tend to stand out. I like to think
I'm gregarious and friendly rather than just loud and obnoxious!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Sociopath Next Door (should be required reading for
everyone), Blink, Steven Pinker stuff, Ender's Game (they better
not screw up the movie)
Music: Wildly eclectic. I'm on a ska kick right now (just
discovered the Pietasters), reggae, classical, had a Debbie Harry
run recently, the Clash and a growing taste for opera. I'm happy
with any live music.
Movies: Repo Man, Secretary, Ted, Arsenic and Old Lace (But he
looks like Karloff!), Empire Strikes Back, Nausicaä of the Valley
of the Wind (even saw this in Japan). Love movies in general.
TV: Totally hooked on Breaking Bad, amused by Sherlock, hooked on
Shameless and Game of Thrones. Is Boardwalk Empire still on? The
Battlestar Galactica reboot was epic.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, family, friends, family, friends, family. Did I mention
friends and family? I'm not kidding, the connections in my life
mean a lot more than the "stuff."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Dinner. Seriously though, I do love good food of almost any kind. I
am in love with Esperpento in SF and Tommy Thai in Seattle.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't have typical Friday nights. Being self-employed means never
having to wait for the week to end!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I share private things with people close to me, not the
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should definitely message me if you keep meeting the same kinds
of people - flashy looks, no substance. I'm different and worth it
for anyone willing to make a genuine effort to get to know me. I
have friends I've known for 30 years for a reason. I bet I love
hotter food that you do. I dare you! I'm here to MEET someone truly
