Can occasionally be oblivious, which can sometimes be misinterpreted as disinterested and/or cocky. Good at reading people, but not women if they are interested; was once told "a woman could come at you with a baseball bat, and you'd have no clue she was hitting on you." Indeed.
As a younger lad, was the kid staring out the window during class, infuriating teachers with apparent lack of interest and poor attendance; nevertheless earned A-grades. Was bored and not challenged all the way through high school. Long-time restless dreamer. Developed greater education by 'doing' rather than studying.
Facial hair comes and goes. Looks good with shirt off, if you're into that sort of thing (finished T25, moved on to P90X). Cleans-up remarkably well, and looks good in a suit.
Also: sails, rides bikes, takes photos (used to develop photos in a darkroom), collects cars, owns a home. Prefers fresh air and open windows instead of A/C (proximity to ocean = nice breeze). Father is an Engineer and Mother is an artist and writer, so offspring is a unique and rare combination of logical, intelligent, resourceful, and creative.
Not desperate or a serial dater; has never actually met anyone from a dating website in person. Mostly here for the forums, or what's left of them.
