My self-summary
So, there you were... just scrolling...
...when you accidentally clicked on this profile...

And that's the story you will tell our grandchildren.

Sure, it lacks that Shakespearean story arc, but it will have to do. Because let's face it - you and I are busy people... and who really has time for prologue these days?

I moved to the DC area about a year ago and travel for work on occasion. I've moved around a bit, so it always takes a while to find really good friends.

In the meantime, I want to find good people to connect with and see what happens.

I am really looking forward to this whole online dating thing. Because if there is one thing I know about the Internet, it's that it is an endless supply of joy and purity... so let's have at it.
What I’m doing with my life
I am getting around to doing a little more "discovering" of the area. After doing a hike my first week out here, I promptly waited several months before really exploring some more... going kayaking, wandering through Georgetown, finding my way into a free tennis lesson... stay tuned, more to come.

(update. more has come. but I prefer to leave it for a later - and surely entertaining - conversation)
I’m really good at
Silly writing.
Seriously.

Music: I'm going to just start adding songs as I hear them (and like them)

The Giving Tree: Plain White T's
Ho Hey: The Lumineers
The six things I could never do without
Writing.
Good Conversation.
Optimism.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I really don't understand people and how they settle for a life that's short on creativity. (in the broader sense - not limited to things like the fine arts/performing arts). Don't let yourself succumb to that type of laziness. It comes down to a mindset of being the habitual, thoughtless consumer versus living a life where you see things (or force yourself to see things) in a different way.

There's a great amount of stimulation and satisfaction in building upon another person's thoughts and point of view. It's one of life's great joys, and the beauty of wonderful, often spontaneous, conversation.

I also think- "Hey, you over there. Put down your smartphone for a while and try daydreaming. It might do you some good."

I believe wholeheartedly that your life is driven by what you give value to. That probably seems obvious, but I'll clarify by saying- it is a subjective choice. You are creating your life. You're making choices every day that define your "take" on the world around you. It's not a tally sheet of good vs. bad. It's an ongoing series of choices that continues to shape who you think you are. There's no intrinsic value in a lot of it. It's your experience you're creating.

I suppose that's what I spend a lot of time thinking about.

Oh, that and - please don't be one of those people who constantly walks around looking unimpressed with everything. Listen, almost *every* time I look up at the night sky and see hundreds or thousands of "giant balls of gas" burning brightly enough that I can see them trillions of miles away... yeah, I'm a little bit awed.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–42
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
...you have not become jaded and still see the beauty in the fact that chance encounters can change the course of a life.

Oh... and also those folks who are completely jaded and would like to just say hello.

Yeah, I'm pretty flexible.
