My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
OKC has been recommending more and more women my mom would have described as "nice girls" to me in the past year, having recently re-answered most of my match questions. I think this means that I'm evolving into the decent, values-driven man my mom probably wished I was in my 20s. Yes, in fact: I've decided to embrace this reality. Still, I like to kid myself in imagining how I might come across as too rock-and-roll for your average choir angel; yet, admit to being way too tame for any card-carrying member of a "bad" girls' club. My okcupid quandary, so to speak. What's a boy to do? I'm trying to figure that out.
If you fancy yourself something of a compassionate, easy-going centerist/libertarian, with a spiritual focus...we might have something in common.

Me: 6-parts well-mannered gentleman with a lot of love to give/2-parts animated chef/2-parts sleepy feline (on weekends, replace the 2-parts animated chef with the 2 parts of your cat that are ornery and attention-loving).

I've worked as a culinary professional for most of the past decade, cooking and managing; hung-up my apron a little over a year ago for a much broader set of responsibilities. That said, you can't take the kitchen out of the cook: the kitchen imbued me with all the qualities and drive that have made me successful.

When I'm not playing charades at work...I'm kinda shy and typically mellow. I enjoy things that keep me active and outdoors; traveling; when the sun goes down, I prefer to unwind with some friends, broaden my mind through reading, and watch movies with my cat until it's time to go to sleep.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I wear a variety of hats at a well-known hot springs retreat center. Currently I manage guest services after 6pm and run a hydroelectric power plant part-time! I love working in hospitality and feel like what we offer makes a difference in peoples' lives.

More generally speaking...
I work, I travel; always savoring the moment, while hoping to stumble into love...
Not trying to impress anyone. My life is pretty simple.

I'm actively searching for love and companionship. I don't think anyone could say I'm looking for love in all the wrong's just that I haven't found it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Expressing myself.
Navigating without a map.
Seeing the details.
Telling time with no watch.
Keeping plants alive.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's been a while since anyone's provided fodder for this box...
...but I'm imagining them noticing that my nose has been broken.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I usually skip this section when reading other people's profiles. We all like what we like, right? And if someone doesn't like the same things as you: who cares? I welcome your variety and individual tastes.

What really matters is...
Food! Going out to dinner is an important part of any urban experience. Adventurous taste-buds and an appreciation for cuisine ranging from refined to out-and-out messy will serve you well when dining with me.

FYI: my typical playlist is a mash-up that will have you guessing. 90s child; club-ready teen; Indie loving ex. I won't judge anything you are listening to. I love to share music; and dance; get caught-up in a good beat, or let-go of the unseen.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
You wouldn't believe some of the things I go without...
however, I'm especially fond of my cat;
...and I really enjoy midnight snacks.
Coffee is a must if you hope to get anywhere with me before 1pm.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I don't spend a lot of time thinking about anything...I spend a lot of little-bits of time thinking about everything!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work 7-on/7-off, so every other week you can find me really cutting-loose...whether it's dancing the night away at home with friends, or navigating to Portland to indulge my foodie tendencies and thirst for cultural stimulation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I shower outdoors and love it.

Having a dialogue with someone prior to meeting is an enjoyable and desirable part of this OKC process.
