My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, first of all...what the hell does any one say with these things without sounding like a total douchebag, or barely literate?? I always hate doing bios....and have had to write a few...never fun.

I am divorced, with a 9 year old daughter who lives with her mum. I like kids...and think they are a lot of fun.

I have a dachshund, who I adore even though she can be a bit demanding and annoying....

I write poetry.

I would like to build a relationship based on mutual trust and understanding.

I am also a sci fi/fantasy nerd....I grew up reading Tolkien, CS Lewis, My Father's Dragon...and many others...and am currently plodding my way through the Wheel of Time series. That being said, I have read some of the classics....for fun.

I also do photography, shooting lights and the moon, and seeing the interesting effects I can create in photoshop. I also shoot events like readings and concerts, and recently did my first model shoot. It was fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am making my way in the literary and art world...as I write poetry and shoot pictures. I do attend open mics and the Portland Poetry Slam. I do perform on the stage, and love every moment of it....I have been published and have been a featured reader at various venues around the Portland area. In the next few months, and the next year, I have several bookings in other cities, too. This is an exciting time for me....it would be nice to be able to share it with a special woman.

Here is a landay I wrote.

The moon gave the sun a lover's kiss,
as her tantric tremours welcomed the rise of the dawn.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am great at listening...and making the person I am listening to feel like they are the only person that matters.

I am good at making people laugh, and at ease. A woman who is laughs or smiles at something I said, or something I did, or something I did, is a huge turn on. I love pretty smiles, and beautiful eyes.

I am also very good at putting my foot in my mouth....because I said some smart ass comment at the most inappropriate time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My various tattoos, and my beard, at least I think so....not sure. I never polled anyone.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Lungs.
My Brain.
My Stomach.
My Heart.
My Liver.
My Pancreas.

and obviously being a smart ass...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Writing, taking pictures...and pretty smiles, interesting eyes...

The eclipsed moon foxtrots with the sun,
her footprints, the faces of the stars,
her kisses, the reflection on the sea.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It just depends on what is going on. It could be a reading, a concert, a dinner, a drink or two, a play, going for a walk, or even a movie....or it could just be at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I keep going back to your profile....it's not me being weird....it's because I'm interested.....and too damned chicken to say anything.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You love poetry, either reading or writing or both...and like shooting pictures...or you have any sort of creative outlet.

You like strange movies, like going to concerts, sitting in a pub for couple of drinks or so, and maybe just walking around.

If you like to laugh, and be easy, have a strange sense of humour, and just have a general good time.

If you can look beyond the superficiality of the surface, and see that I am pretty fucking genuine. I don't play games.

Also, I can't see if you like me or not, so it's better to just tell me.
