Update: So do people actually meet anyone here? This profile is now over a year old and I haven't met even one person in the real world. Just curious.
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
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
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 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
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, 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
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
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
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
That I share private things with people close to me, not the
You should message me if
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
