My self-summary
I went to Engineering School convinced that industrial hemp materials would replace synthetic composites within a few years (that was 1996).

I've tended towards blind devotion in some past relationships (with predictable results) - less blind now.

Going "Dutch" feels unfriendly to me; I'd rather pick up the tab saying "you get it next time".

Sit-coms with laugh tracks creep me the f*** out.

I tend to notice movement and poise. Grace of motion is what I often find incredibly attractive.

I appreciate sentiment. Gifts that are little reminders that someone was on my mind are what I tend to give and what I like to get.

I soak up information like a sponge, am great at fixing things and solving problems, but I'm famous for "absent minded professor syndrome" or just getting tripped up by unexpectedly simple things.

If a homeless person has the word hungry on his sign, I'll usually cave. I cave for nieces and god-daughters too. (ok and dogs)

I don't watch sports. I don't know the teams. I don't care.
What I’m doing with my life
As always, I bend those around me to my will... *evil laugh*.

I'm a land surveyor, which is really perfect for me. It melds together all the hands-on stuff with the egghead-computer-engineering stuff. Basically, I get paid to hike around with expensive equipment.

I play bass for a Beatles tribute band called The Repeatles. I played once with Ticket To Ride and it was glorious! (Got free food and beer)

I do art photography (just to be fancy)... You can see my work here .

I have a contractor's license for "parking and highway improvement". I still do occasional contracting work. Most recently, an indoor soccer field and a Foster's Freeze.

In the past, I've worn many hats. Notably, I taught high school math and science and was a corporate IT drone for a time.

... "Hello, IT department... have you tried turning it off and back on?"
I’m really good at
Making mixed CDs (now, a dying art)

Pigeon Pose. (I don't know why, but it's true)

Tickle Fights (undefeated)

Getting a solid buzz from a single beer. (Cheap Date)

Writing Birthday / Xmas Cards (can usually make friends cry) :)
The first things people usually notice about me
Oddly, people have remarked that I "smile all the time".

So annoying! I must destroy them.

The six things I could never do without
This question always makes me think of survivalism, which I'm really interested in.

The idea of getting dropped off somewhere remote with just a hunting knife has always appealed to me, however, in practice, I always get really carried away with the gear.

I'm the guy with the 60lb pack full of every conceivable gadget. You'll think I'm silly until you need some vaseline, duct tape or blister treatment on day 3.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Very Recently? Sharpness...

I inherited eight vintage straight razors, so I'm about a month into the process of learning how to hone, strop and properly shave with them. It's not as easy as you'd think.

More typically, I think a lot about the people that are close to my heart. Really often, I'm keeping an eye out for something that a friend needs, or would like, or would be interested in. Making my friends feel special is something that make me feel special too. Sounds sappy, but it's true.
On a typical Friday night I am
Honestly, more often than not, I'm cooking for myself and seeing what's on Netflix... hence, why I'm here.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to iron my clothes.

Despite working outdoors here and there, I have a vast collection of office and dress clothes. I find the whole subject of traditional menswear really fascinating. I'm going to learn to tie a bowtie soon.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–50
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
I really enjoy dating and I enjoy company for events and non-events alike... so feel free to contact me if you want to (for any of the above)

But realize that the moment that I find a connection that compels me, all my attention will focus on that alone. I'm not afraid of love or of being in love and all this exploration is only to lead to that.

Still, I could use a good top rope partner (safe belayer - regardless of skill level) :)

If you don't know what to say, just tell me a story about the last movie or restaurant you really liked or a cheesy joke or pickup line you heard. Relax, dating is supposed to be fun.
