My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Feb 2015 - I haven't looked at this thing in a while, and boy is it out of date. I should clean this up soon ...


Wow, they really make you fill these things out don't they. Um. I'm a busy guy who's in a long-term committed partnership with my little girl's mother, which is a great relationship now that we took out the problematic romantic part. So now it would be nice to have some dates and maybe develop a connection with someone who's poly-friendly or at least ok with dating that's not going to end up in marriage and kids. I know, tall order, but what can I do. Listening to Dan Savage makes me think there must be some occasional-dating/someone-else's-secondary/generally-open-relationship thing that I can fit into, although I have no idea how you would go about setting that up. Logistics are hard.

Also, I have to say this about the match questions - too many Yes/No questions without a "don't know" or "it depends" option! Nothing is actually that binary (did you see what I did there?). Give me some wiggle room. Grrrr.

Also, I used to have myself listed as bi because I don't see anything wrong with having sex with other guys. But I'm not really into dating guys; it's more like there's a few guys I've known over the years who I've connected with. So I'm back to straight for simplicity's sake.

Also, and I hope I'm not the only one who does this, I tend to leave this thing on in the background while I'm working, and answer random questions in between tasks. Which is why I have a bajillion questions answered. Seriously, I didn't do all that at once. That's like a year of randomly clicking at them. If you actually read through all of them, you deserve some kind of medal.

I'm also a big nerd. But I was a nerd before nerd was cool, which should count for something, other than creating some kind of nerd-hipster hybrid, which should probably never exist.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, mostly. Day job in post-secondary admin, night job teaching, weekend job as a bookkeeper. I keep busy.

The rest of the time I'm rampaging around with the girls, or playing video games, or generally nerding it up with other nerds.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being reasonable.

Also, spreadsheets. I program a mean spreadsheet.

Other stuff I can do: sew (with a machine and everything), negotiate contracts, plan (sometimes I suck at execution, though), hold my alcohol, run amok with my little girl, use "thats what she said" in regular conversation, adopt e-solutions....oh, and I give awesome backrubs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm short.

My wry wit and good-natured awesomeness take far longer to catch on to. You'll just have to take my word that they exist.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Let me replace the massive wall of text with a more readable summary...

Movies: I love movies that are slow and beautiful, or at least beautiful in their own way. Jim Jarmusch. Sofia Coppola. Wes Anderson. I love movies with long pauses, stretches where dialogue is unnecessary. Movies with appropriately awkward pauses, like Donnie Darko.

Also: stuff blowing up. That's always cool. I'm a sucker for cheesy action, cheesy horror, and anything with Jason Statham in it.

Music: I like listening to things that feel like drinking whisky. Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Afghan Whigs. I like things that have are joyously angry: Dreadnaughts, Gogol Bordello, Dropkick Murphys. I like things that are nerdy and proud of it: They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Coulton, Wordburgler.

Books: I've really started to notice books where the way in which they are written echoes the things they are written about. China Mieville is a master of it. Chuck Palahniuk can do it. There's a fantastic pacing to David Wong's John Dies At The End. There's a rough directness in old Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler. There is a bottomless beauty in Oscar Wilde.

Shows: There will always be Arrested Development. I am often awed by how well Twin Peaks holds up over time. Kids in the Hall makes me nostalgic. I blame Netflix.

Food: eating should be optional, so that meals could mean something more than just fuel for the machine. Oh, how I love food. All of the food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. my iphone
2. the interwebs
3. coffee
4. my girls
5. did i mention coffee?
6. sarcasm. Sweet, sweet sarcasm.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Zombie apocalypse survival tactics. General semantics.

Ok, seriously. Does EVERYONE spend time thinking about zombies in one way or another? Like, what is that supposed to say about our society? Do you think the zombies are thinking about you (well, ok, they probably are. Insofar as they want to eat your brains)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Crashing after a long week. Watching a movie at home, doing dishes or laundry and generally being all grown up.

Every now and again, I'm out grabbing coffee or a drink. And occasionally I'm dancing it up at a trashy retro/goth club. Old habits and all that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Back when I was really broke and couldn't afford presents, I wrote a little book of Haiku and gave it to all my friends. I still expect it'll be worth something when I'm famous.

"Everyone needs a / Little book of Haiku on / Their coffee table"


"My milkshake brings all / the boys to the yard. My life / Is better than yours" (I can't take credit for noticing, but now I will never forget).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like giving shy guys a chance. I'm terrible at starting things, but I'm happy to be receptive.

You live in a world where "hey, I hear you need some help with your taxes," counts as a pick-up line.

If you're looking for a nice guy who you can go out with every six weeks or so, I'm your man. A couple times a week? Not so much.
