This is the part where I wow you with how amazing, nice, sexy and
rich I am right? And I totally could with words, but it's best if
you figure it out for yourself as we get to know one another. So
I'll give you a mixed bag of the fair warning stuff and the good
Home is the family farm. Mom and Dad are a quarter mile away with
horse pastures and a barn between our houses. I live in the old
farmhouse that Dad grew up in and have the Cape Cod to
Mechanically inclined. To be any kind of a man you have to be able
to do things with your hands. Building, repairing, modifying,
whatever. The job that pays my utilities 8 months of the year
requires me to be good with hands, so I am.
Smart, like crazy smart. Yes I am aware that the previous sentence
didn't use the fancy words. I've been gifted with the ability to
explain anything I know to anyone. If you're with me your brain
works at a higher rate and you think outside the box more
effectively and reach greater understanding of things that you are
working on. I read and listen enough to be able to talk with just
about anyone about whatever they like to talk about. This ability
plus not being a criminal is what gives me the job that pays the
utilities the other four months.
Passions. Horses, games, reading. (I'm a huge nerd, you'll have to
take it with the rest of my sterling attributes). And when I say
passions I mean the things that chew up my optional time and
discretionary income. If we really hit it off you'll take priority
over the games, and some of the reading, but the horses have you
beat until I offer you a ring.
What I’m doing with my life
Working at things that need doing until the economy turns around
and I can make more money doing things that aren't actually
important in any way. Building clientelle for my business and
paying down debt. And trying to improve my home a little bit every
I’m really good at
Being patient? Letting things come to me? Holding down and moving
mattresses(to a greater and lesser degree as the situation
requires). I do a reasonable job of making people think that a
tazmanian devil has passed through, given the correct stimuli.
Being graceful(gracious, maybe? Hard to choose, could be both)
about being hit on all the time.
Writing a lot of entertaining nonsense.
The first things people usually notice about me
Honestly? When I'm with my friends, new people usually first notice
that I assume that anyone new is an old friend and I treat them
like the friends I came out with. (This is a big deal, I don't come
with filters.) Which yields hilarious memorable results. And there
will likely be an awkward moment for the new person, while everyone
else is laughing or face palming or both. Unless they walk up
behind me, then it's totally my posterior, or maybe how amazing my
profile is against the foreground.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books- Legend, Last Defender of Camelot, Foundation. The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy, anything by Robert E. Howard. The Wheel of Time series. Starship Troopers. The Old Man and the Sea. Song of Ice and Fire. Isle of the Dead. Currently on an Orson Scott Card kick. Stephen Donaldson too, which isn't as good, but doesn't suck. I haven't read anything by Larry McMurtry that I have failed to love yet.

The six things I could never do without
Clean Running Water, soap, A shmoo or two, jeans that fit, a horse
that I like in the backyard, something to read.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I need to do differently to reach my goals.
How to fix mistakes. How I can address soundness issues with a horse while remaining within the customers budget.
On a typical Friday night I am
Something something... all my rowdy friends got married. Lately, Netflix. That is very adjustable however. The slightest excuse changes Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Math unjustly and inappropriately finds its way into far too much of my life. Beyond mere metrics. Yet everytime I realize that and try to change the way things are, the world goes to make a poet of me for a moment, then I start having to count things to get the sound right, and those filthy numbers intrude again.
I am very difficult to get to stand still long enough for pictures when there is a camera within my perception. Hence the reason that there are very few photos of me without some variety of suit on, even though I rarely wear a suit. Because of that, my hair is on the shorter end of ponytail length, and my goatee is a beard now.... but there's no photographic proof.
You should message me if
You should message me if you think we'd have fun(any inflection of that word that applies to what you're thinking) or make good friends-with-potential-for-more. Or both, or more than both. Or if you are into horses but have had a devil of a time finding a man that will be patient with what women with horses entails.
