My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ultimately I'm looking for a partner, a relationship, and hoping to find Ms. Right. Instead, I seem to be finding Ms. Right Now. And that's good, too. More or less. Perhaps that's all that online dating has to offer. But what this profile presupposes is: maybe it's not?

Relationships can take a lot of different paths, and it all just depends on the connection and, of course, the timing. Timing is everything. Short term or long term, friends or lovers, who knows? There's a lot of possibility out there.

(And no, those are NOT my kids. I love kids: other peoples' kids.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend my days working as a lawyer, and evenings out and about with friends at happy hour, dinner parties, concerts, Blazers games, lounging at the park, record shopping, BBQs, campfires, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being kind, exhibiting generosity, waking up early, sleeping in late, laughing, telling stories that make Oscar Wilde seem dry and Anais Nin seem prude, and rising above mere sarcasm with wit.

I love bar games. Pool? Darts? Ping pong? Beirut? Giant Jenga? Corn hole? Pub quiz? Skee Ball? Buck hunter? Bring it.

I enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and tennis. My favorite way to relax is at one of the Oregon hot springs, or in town at Common Ground. I also build a great campfire, though lately it's only been in my living room fireplace. But Autumn is here, and the backyard fire pit is awaiting some quality time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes -- they're pretty intense and are typically some deep turquoise color, though they change shades of green and blue. Though occasionally people likely just notice my glasses, I suppose?

(Unless you're standing behind me, in which case it's probably my ass, for no particular reason other than proximity. Though I am told that it's nice.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
After lots of vagabond travel and many moves all around the world, I've come to realize that I can live without most things. But if I have to pick six indespensable things, I'll take:

A really comfortable hoodie,
A tasty restaurant,
A divey bar,
Live music,
Great sex, and
Freshly brewed black coffee.

(Not necessarily in that order. But that order can absolutely work well.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Buying a boat.
Happy hour.
Getting to the mountain.
Grilled cheese sandwiches.
My niece.
Getting the band back together.
How stupid online dating is.
How incredible online dating can be.
(And, ideally, how to tell the difference.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There are few typical Friday nights. But happy hour drinks, followed by a concert or a Blazers game is not uncommon.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I really don't care whether you've been to Burning Man, or go to Burning Man, or dream of going to Burning Man, or whatever. Do, don't, I couldn't care less. Being hot and uncomfortable and sun soaked and sandy in the middle of the desert just doesn't particularly appeal to me, personally. And, generally, I have no problem if that is indeed your thing. Good for you! Buuuuuut, if your personal identity is so intertwined with the idea that you are a Burner, year-round? Little else is more profoundly annoying.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're a fun, progressive, feminist, funny person who wants to hang out and have a nice time, whatever the context.

Just don't be flaky. That's the absolute worst. Initial chatting online is a bit of a necessary evil, but online "dating" isn't what I want to be doing with my time. Let's have a real date: coffee, happy hour, dinner, a walk, an activity, whatever. Let's get together and see if there's a connection. Sparks may fly, or they may not, but actually finding out in real life is a hell of a lot more fun than typing messages back and forth for days or weeks at a time. Let's be spontaneous!

Also, recently I've been hit up with a barrage of "hey, pay for a cab and I'll come meet you for a drink" or "give me some money [for drugs] and we'll party." I mean, are you serious? Don't waste my inbox space.
