My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I thought that the "sexual revolution" and "online dating" would mean men and women would message each other equally. But I have found to my chagrin that this is not the case. Don't be shy, please feel free to start a conversation.

I am a cabbie. When I'm not working, I'm a backpacker, a car-free cyclist, and am into community brewing. I'm attracted to a person, not a gender, so whether you identify as one or another, or something wonderful and completely other is cool, so if the energy is right I'd explore that.

I enjoy festivals and gift economy gatherings and I would love to meet singles or couples that also enjoy these types of excursions. Living in the present is important, living life with intention, as due to our perception of the world around us, the present is the only time in which we truly do exist.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've finally moved to SE, to the Buckman neighborhood, into a place of my own. And my job is working out great also. I'm working on financial stability to take backpacking trips like the Camino de Santiago, getting even healthier with my juicer and Vitamix, and finding others to share in my life and this journey, and to enjoy all that this town has to offer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Backpacking, biking, maybe home brewing too if I spend enough time at it. I'm certifiably a good kisser and good at cuddling too, in case you were wondering.

And if you want someone that can keep up with an active lifestyle, I can bike or hike around all day, and I've hiked both the AT and PCT, so I have both the stamina and muscle memory for a good long hike or ride.

Usually I prefer to be around those with more rad quirkiness than myself. So bonus points if you can take me out of my element in that way. Let's keep Portland weird in a good way. =^)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am currently sporting a classic clean shaven look, though in the past one might have commented on my beard. My eyes have been commented on. It is probably best that we meet so you can find out for yourself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
All of these topics in just one section? I think these are best left to find out after having met, as my tastes vary and matching them exactly isn't necessary for us to have a good time.

I love to read, but don't give myself as much time for it as I would like, but I do try to keep up with National Geographic as I am a life member thanks to that as a birthday present from my grandmother. I finish a novel every couple weeks. And I can watch most any movie as long as it isn't downright terrible (or make fun of how it is really bad), there aren't many TV shows that I would follow, but do have a few favorite shows old and newer and enjoy good documentaries.

And I like bands with amazing vocalists and/or that are highly technical and excel at performing varied musical styles in some cases (I enjoy most anything though I am not much into most rap/pop or country). Metal by true artists, classic rock, funk, jazz, blues, movie themes, etc.

If you want to have a marathon watching any of the following I'd be down: Star Trek, LotR, Firefly, Back to the Future, Cowboy Bebop, Superman, Don Hertzfeldt cartoons (I have Rejected and The Animation Show on DVD.), Seinfeld, Bones, Stargate, View Askew movies, Monty Python, Mel Brooks, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Terminator, Bruce Willis, Bones, and I am sure there are others I'm leaving out.

As far as food goes, just about any food that came about without suffering by fellow Earthlings. (To the extent that one can accomplish that.) Some favorite restaurants and foods are, Portobello, Blossoming Lotus, flavorful tofu scrambles, Los Gorditos...

If further explanation is needed please do ask, or just ask me out and find out in person which is much easier.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Amazing friends and loving family, fruits and veggies, a self-aware date, communing with Nature, my bikes and joy for riding them, tasty local brews with fun people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The ways in which our society and culture could change to be more in tune with the rest of Nature. How to keep having lots of fun, but also be responsible and work enough to buy into my company by next year. How to separate my work and social life by doing things such as leaving my smartphone at home when I don't have a specific use for it, thereby letting the night unfold in an organic manner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I make Thursday my 'Friday' since I enjoy going to the brew nights for Community Supported Brewing. Sometimes we have live music around a campfire even. The Midnight Mystery Ride happens on the second Friday of the month and I enjoy going on that on actual Friday, among other possibilities.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am an enigma, wrapped in a chocolate candy coating, wrapped in an enigma.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You'd honestly like to get together and see if we have good chemistry in person.
-You want to break the stereotype of the male making first contact, on this site or on our first date.
-You are awake and live life with intention! =^)
