What am I doing here, you ask?: I am looking for an amazing, incredible and wonderful woman. I guess there's a big demand for that particular demographic; imagine my surprise. Nonetheless, and in the interest of serendipity, I am holding onto the idea that she may be out there, and that forces, events and a little luck may conspire to have us cross paths here or someplace else. I figure if you're gonna wish, you might as well wish big.
About me: I’m a people person, inquisitive, fun, resourceful and versatile, an enthusiastic dad, overly empathetic, and a bit driven to make meaningful contributions. The best part of my day is usually an animated conversation, a lively debate, or pointless banter. I like being outside and away from the masses; I loathe housework, but I do it; and I am not afraid of spiders, but I tend to steer clear of the really big ones. I get paid to study and protect endangered wildlife. I have no vast wealth in anything other than character, experience, mileage, good humor, friends, loved ones, and a few guitars and half-read books. I don't like that I have less hair than I did last week, but I'm in a comfortable state of denial about it. I can be as oblivious and shallow as the next guy, but I discovered that I am too complicated to be average. I don’t have a TV because I'd get sucked into it too easily and would miss out on real life opportunities. Instead, I listen to NPR and Mariner’s baseball while I do other things and watch too many movies on my pc.
Also: I am over-the-top-crazy about my son Mitch, who just turned 14. He and I spend a lot of time together, but I also play guitar, fish out of my drift boat, photograph wildlife, track national politics, write, and travel. However, I am far from worldly; more a work in progress. I am really active, but I exercise more when things slow down so I can die fat and happy when I'm 97.
And lastly: I’m real comfortable with myself and I don’t want anybody else’s life. Nonetheless, my life would be considerably better if I was sharing it with someone. I’m hoping to meet an amazing, incredible, wonderful woman and spend a big chunk of my life with her. While I have a hard time imagining how it will all happen, I expect to find this woman. I don't know how she will be amazing, incredible, or wonderful; it could be for any of a hundred or more reasons. Perhaps she'd be adventurous, dynamic, brilliant, uniquely beautiful, confident, hilarious, articulate, unavoidably loveable, tough, big-hearted, outdoorsy and who knows what else. Perhaps it will just be because I can't stand to be without her and she'd feel the same about me. I guess I don't have any other way to describe her except that she is someone very special and won't settle for less than that for herself.
