Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First off, why am I on OkCupid? Well let's be honest...it's fun to
make a page dedicated to how hot and awesome you are. It's the
online version of flexing in the mirror. Cheaper than a bar
So I love hiking and climbing in the mountains, though I'm not an
adrenaline loving fitness freak. And I love listening to fast, loud
metal, though I'm not a loud, tattooed party animal either.
I'm a pretty laidback and friendly guy. I enjoy solitude and am
perfectly comfortable being back in my head, which comes in handy
on solo trips in the mountains. I keep a close group of friends and
family is very important to me. I love my job and coworkers, and
we'll often go out for drinks or catch a movie after a shift.
I'm very open sexually and require the same of any partners. I
enjoy kink and BDSM, and I'm willing to try pretty much anything. I
can be gentle and giving (and love going down!) but generally like
to dominate. I've enjoyed having friends with benefits,
open/polyamorous relationships and group sex, so if that's what
you're looking for feel free to contact me, but I feel ready for
another monogamous, long term relationship with the right
Don't want to scare any nice girls off with my candor but I've had
enough routine sex for one lifetime. Openness and enthusiasm are
far more important to me than experience or even confidence, so if
you're new to kink that isn't a problem. And of course there's
nothing wrong with more vanilla sex, especially when opening up
around someone new, as long as it becomes part of a broader
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Seeking fun times with good people, enjoying the PNW, loving my
job, and trying not to look too far into the future.
I'm very passionate about hiking, rock climbing, mountaineering and
caving, and put much of my resources into progressing in those
areas and sharing my passion. I love capturing photos and video of
the wild places I visit. I've given multiple presentations to some
pretty large crowds, written a nearly novel-length story of my
longest expedition (50 days solo), and have been featured in a
wilderness documentary. I've taken EMT training and am a certified
Wilderness First Responder, and I'm a member of a local mountain
rescue team. Perhaps working for the Park Service is in my future
but at this point in my life I want to be persuing my own goals in
the wilderness rather than checking permits and lecturing litter
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Wilderness trip planning...I love figuring out the logistics of
trip itineraries, food drops, back up plans, poring over maps and
photos, and dreaming up a goal that motivates me to get out there
and do it. I've spent over 7 weeks in the wilderness before, and
there's just nothing like it...surrounded by mountains in every
direction, limited only by weather, skill, and guts. Pure, primal
The first things people usually notice about me

My height. My long hair. Whatever band's shirt I happen to be
wearing. Oh, and I'm told I have a distinctive nose.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I read a lot...physics/cosmology, hard SF, natural
philosophy, politics. Some favorites are Ishmael, The Soul of the
Night, The Fabric of the Cosmos, The Tao of Physics, The End of
Faith, Lucifer's Hammer, The Years of Rice and Salt, and The
Climber's Guide to the Olympic Mountains.
Music: cliche as it might seem, Pink Floyd's The Wall is probably
my favorite album - so dark and expressive, and it helped open my
mind to how meaningful and powerful art can be. Huge fan of jimi
hendrix and dig a lot of other classic rock (Kansas, The Who, the
less poppy, more psychedelic Doors). But metal is what i'm really
into...old or underground stuff of all kinds. Celtic Frost, Burzum,
Arkhon Infaustus, Dark Angel, Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate and on and
I watch some movies and tv shows, but don't think they say a lot
about me. A good documentary or TED talk is pretty satisfying, but
comedies and sci-fi thrillers can be fun too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
freedom (not the flag-waving kind)
all the wonderful stupid things on the internet
the occasional escape from sobriety
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Science. Space. Mountains. History. Art. Sex and dating. Music. The
great people I have in my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Who knows? Fridays aren't really special to me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You might not guess it from my attitude, but I'm a bit of a
nihilist. In the sense that all "meaning" is a construct of our
minds and not a fundamental aspect of reality. In the sense that
we're parts of societal and cosmic processes rolling onward toward
no purpose, and with so much momentum we can't hope to change them.
And in the sense that no higher being is looking out for me and no
higher existence awaits.
That we can create meaning for ourselves in a world without any is
pretty remarkable. So I seek out and share things that strike a
chord with me...be it art, science, music, books, people,
relationships...and ignore the rest.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're comfortable with your body and sexuality, whatever forms
they take. You're genuine, non-flakey, and low drama. You take care
of yourself and imbibe in moderation. You like to walk and explore
new parts of town, cuddle up and watch a movie, spoil and be
spoiled. You have the time and are at a point in your life for a
real relationship with a real person.
