My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m lucky to be doing for a living something that I have always wanted to do and happen to be somewhat decent at. I take my job seriously, which really means I spend long hours at it while trying my best to make light of everything else. Of course, loving what I do has led to spending way too much time in the office—or working from home—and I thought I’d try something to expand my social circle.

Besides my being a borderline workaholic, or perhaps because of it, I tend to enjoy low key activities with close friends: small groups out for dinner or a drink with little pressure and low expectations; hanging around the kitchen drinking beer or wine with friends or family while something is baking in the oven; even an afternoon on the couch reading with a hot chocolate within arm’s reach. Although I’m usually up for just about anything—when time permits, to me it is often more about the company than the activity. That being said, there are some things you won’t find me doing. Most of them involve high places or long falls. I tend to be quiet when meeting new people, but can quickly become silly and outgoing--read as clown--around friends and family.

As for who I might be looking for, I’m not entirely sure. I suppose that’s the tricky part of meeting people online, you miss the personal spark or chemistry that occurs instantly when meeting someone for the first time—in the real world. I’d love to find the woman I’d enjoy the rest of my life with, but would be happy with an enjoyable evening or two as a start.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Designing buildings, mostly. People watching. Enjoying long walks in and out of town. Trying to live a little healthier...

Enjoying it!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Architecture? I'd hope so anyway... Not a great answer.

I'd like to say art, or even writing, but in all honesty I'm probably not. I guess it comes down to who you're comparing me to...

I'm extremely patient and a decent teacher/mentor.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really have no idea, and--obviously--never really asked. Possibly that I'm quiet or reserved. Possibly that I have an expressive face... that likes an audience.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm not that great at favorites... Mostly because they change with my mood. That said, I'll give it my best shot.

The Count of Monte Cristo was the first ~significant~ book that made an impression on me and I go back to re-read it from time to time. I like a good deal of Dumas writing, actually. I've always had an appreciation for Poe--Edgar Allan: my personal favorite of his being 'The Fall of the House of Usher'. I couldn't mention either of these without also including Mary Shelly. Hopefully you see the pattern. Hopefully you're not judging me because of it.
As for books that have been written in the last century, I tend to read noir-ish crime, spy, thriller (preferably all rolled into one) novels: think Robert Ludlum, Frederick Forsyth, or even Alan Furst. I also enjoy sci-fi and fantasy fiction, typically of the darker, grittier, dare I say noir-ish, variety. And, yes, I've read the Song of Fire and Ice... The first three books anyway... And the Wheel of Time... The first seven or eight books anyway... Love lighter reads like the Dresden Files and most history books as well.

I've been on a non-fiction bent lately. Just finished reading Walkable City and am neck deep in Lawrence in Arabia.

This is an easy one. With the exception of gore and horror flicks, I love all movies. Describing the range of movies that I enjoy is down right silly because of it, but I'll throw a couple out there just to give you an idea. A handful of my favorite movies of all time--for varying reasons: Bladerunner, Total Recall, Sabrina, Roman Holiday, Singing in the Rain, Spaceballs, A Fish Called Wanda, Hot Fuzz, Super Troopers, Better Off Dead, Leon, City of Lost Children, Shawshank Redemption, Princess Bride, The Usual Suspects, My Fair Lady.

I used to be quite a film junkie, and though I still consider myself one, I have to admit my numbers have dropped significantly. Lately, most of the movies I'm watching are independent films (Safety Not Guaranteed, How to Lose Friends and Alienate People) or compulsory blockbusters (basically anything Marvel).

So, I don't really watch TV, but I do have a handful of shows I enjoy watching. Or, at least that's what my Netflix 'recently watched' page tells me. A random selection, in no particular order: Psych, Archer, House of Cards, Burn Notice...

In general, if it's light-hearted and fun, I will most likely enjoy it. Yeah, I know, how did House of Cards get in there? Eh, I don't like following rules.

Long story short, anything rock or folk from the 60's to present. Add a lot of soundtracks--which is what I typically listen to while working, some good techno and electronica usually finds its way into my play lists, and--yes--even some classical. Basically, I'm all over the place.

Yes please!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
* I'm skipping the obvious necessities (sleep, water, food, love, etc.)

1) Family and friends (yes, that's one "thing")
2) Something to read when I'm enjoying peace and quiet
3) Movies (any and all)
4) Restful rainy days
5) Some kind of creative outlet (pen and paper would do)
6) Sadly, my smartphone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lately, what I need to do to get though the next day at the office.

What I'd like to be thinking about? The book I last read, how beautiful the changing leaves are in the fall breeze, What to cook up for breakfast.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My answer to this is no different from anyone else...

If it's a good week, I'm having dinner--or just hanging out--with friends. Usually nothing supper fancy or extravagant. But I've been known to just hang out at home with a book or movie.
