My self-summary
After having something like the same description on here for ages, I've decided it's time to take the gloves off and stop pretending I'm some nice-guy who's cute and cuddly and every gal's dream. Fact is, it's impossible for you to have any real idea of who I am from some BS description on a dating site. To really know me, to see how my brain ticks and all that jazz, you need to actually meet me in the flesh. But considering the average person's natural reluctance to give away their precious time, I'll do my best to give you some idea. So here goes:

I preach a love of the finer pleasures in life and I know how to do those well. Food, fine wines, good sex, these are what I prize as I've past the point where I think I can make any significant difference in changing this world. I indulge in all three without remorse, in fact, to the contrary, my epicurean ways border on the hedonistic. I thrive on casual conversation, and deeply enjoy all that has to be said of modern romance and it's lack of proper gentlemen.

In some ways, I'm one giant, living and breathing contradiction. I have my beliefs but I'm not dogmatic. I enjoy life as best as I can without any guilt or remorse as mastering the art of enjoyment is a talent to be employed, and I consider myself lucky enough to have it. I'm confident, yet shy, talkative and pensive all at the same time. Some contradictions are implied, others are outright. Either way you shake it, I'm something slightly off the beaten path. And I revel in it.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a traveller, a lover of worlds, languages, lifestyles, cultures. I love the contradictions our world presents as well. I live in Barcelona now and have lived here before. Hablo espanol, je parle francais, ein bisschen Deutsch (although my keyboard lacks these lovely extra letters, sorry folks!), pood pasa thai dai nid noi kap, yeah yeah all that showoffy stuff. When I'm not decimating some poor unsuspecting language, I mold minds. And I'm good. I've got my handy rolling pin at my side. I'm busy, I work constantly, and I go out with friends as often as I can. Although it often feels like a whirlwind, I love it. I can say that, unusually for once, I'm happy.
I’m really good at
Besides mind molding and the occasional foreign word? I hate these questions, straddling the line between narcissism and good presentation. Here's an answer: I love playing guitar and singing. I'm no good really, but it soothes the soul. Make any sense?
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe that I'm bald? Or that I look pretty jewish, I get that one a lot. Brits all say that I resemble Sascha Baron Cohen. Still not sure that's a good thing, but people seem to think it's good.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love my books, music and food. These days, like most poeple it seems, I thrive on tv. Who knew it would get so good? But talking about books makes me looks smart and sexy, at least according to some, and in fact (cough, cough), I'm actually quite well read and will take what you have to say about books far more seriously than you can ever imagine. In fact, if you have bad taste and tell me you like someone like Paulo Coelho, I'll most likely be instantly turned off. So here goes: for writing, I love the modernist era, the beginning of the 20th century. Aldous Huxley and W. Somerset Maugham's prose can't be beat. I have a taste for the fantastical, in Bulgakov's Master and Margarita as well as Clarke's Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norell, and I also have a small but seriously geeky love of sci-fi, like Asimov and Bester. I can't stand pretension (sorry all you Umberto Eco fans, with one notable exception). and don't do pop or chic lit.

For movies, it's far more all over the place. But as I said before, tv is where it's at these days, and of course am a lover of the Wire, MadMen, Breaking Bad, and so many others. I love documentaries, the more strange the better.

And in fact, in terms of music, strangeness, or just a daring to be different attracts me more than anything. So while I love the soothing sounds of MGMT - Gonjasufi, Mike Patton and Boards of Canada - do more for me than most pop mass media fluff.

I'm an excellent cook, but only for a few dishes. If you get to try my lasagna, yer in for a treat...
The six things I could never do without
Guitar, books, friends, internet connection, sanity, cheese, laughs, cuddling, toilet paper...I can't be limited to just six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People, motivations, what makes people tick, how I can be a better person, how I have to stop caring what other people think, how can I do well at my job, what color lipstick would look perfect on that beautiful girl over there. Blah blah blah blah blah. Yeah, my mind might fall into the "thinks too much" category, but thankfully I've trained myself over the years to switch that shit off.
On a typical Friday night I am
It's different every weekend. Sometimes with friends having a drink, other times watching a movie or having a dinner party, or even drinks and dancing if anyone is daring enough to join me. Friday's have seen me kissing a stranger from time to time, or even sharing a bottle and some heated conversation about the discovery of the Higg's Boson. And on the odd occasion, I get to enjoy being the part time dad that I am. One thing I hate is monotony.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm open to a fault so I'll tell you just about everything. That sword cuts two ways from time to time so beware.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–40
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
Well sheesh, if you made it this far, then maybe you should just contact me to find out who this nutjob really is. Or not. Yer call. But seriously, I'm only interested in maturity, I find a woman's self-assuredness in her 30's and beyond extremely sexy. So if yer younger than 30, then best move on.
