My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, I just re-opened my account after going idle for quite a while. I need to fix up all the old text at some point...but have not yet. Just wanted to add a message here of what I am looking for. I'm really looking for someone to have fun dating. (I know sounds obvious) But, what I really mean is that I'd just like to get out and have some dinners out, movies out, that kind of thing. If things become more serious than that that's cool, but I'm not in any rush to push things.

Just to be clear. (From Urban Dictonay)

polyamory - The practice, state or ability of having more than
one sexual loving relationship at the same time, with the full
knowledge and consent of all partners involved

Married to a wonderful woman and have two great kids. My wife and I are dipping our toes in the whole open marriage / polyamory thing. (She has an account on the site too and she is my highest match at 99% :) Just want to be clear that I am not looking for marriage or more kids. I could be open to a long term casual relationship or just getting together for a movie or a dinner. Not looking for a one night stand. Just have to be poly or poly friendly.

I'm really pretty laid back. I'm a social person that will just wonder up and start talking to people at a party if I don't know anyone instead of being a wall flower. That being said I am not all that forward with women and not really much of a flirter. Not that I am not interested just I've never really learned that skill. I'm even tempered, good in a crisis, and I think very funny (not everyone else agrees with that last one)

I like to try new things but will often soon see something shiny and get very interested in something else. I was doing fencing recently, have taken other forms of martial arts and would like to try more, used to ski, used to SCUBA dive. Poking around this site seems to be what has my interest right now.

I like to visit new places. I've been to Australia, New Zealand, India, Istanbul (Not Constantinolpe), backpacked around Europe, and want to get out and see more.

I have SCUBA dived the great barrier reef, went to Oktoberfest in Munich when I was 19, ridden the entire Orient Express twice, been in the head of the Statue of Liberty, been most of the way up the Eiffel Tower, taken a helicopter to the top of a mountain and skied down, shaken hands with Eric Idle, and ridden an elephant through the jungles of India looking for tigers.

I am doing the couch to 5K thing now and hope to add completed the Columbus marathon to that list in a couple years...

My spelling and grammar are bad, but I tend to be attracted to women who care about spelling and grammar. I have no artistic talent but tend to like women who do. I really really can't dance and would be most happy not having to prove it.

I love games of all kinds, especially board games and would much prefer to sit around a table with some friends having a good conversation and playing a game than going to a bar and getting drunk.

I've been told that I look younger than I am. Have heard nice smile and eyes. My wife just says that I'm hot. (I think that she is biased)

Books - Richard Russo, Game of Thrones series, Neil Gaiman, Joe R Lansadale, Harry Potter, Tolkein, Daniel Suarez, Hunger Games, Corey Doctorow, Charles Strauss. Always looking for new authors. Want to get into reading more classics.

Movies - I like all kinds but really enjoy slow building movies with dialogue and character development. Anything by Alan Smithee, Amélie, Hugo, David Mammet movies, Cohen brothers, zombie movies. Weird movies. I can also like the big explosion movies when in the mood. I like to go into a movie knowing nothing other than being told by a friend that I trust that it's good.

Shows - the Daily Show, Simpsons, Adult Swim, Mythbusters, random history documentaries, Arrested Development, HBO Shows.

Music - All kinds of things but no country. Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker, ZZ-Top, George Thorogood, Dire Straits, The Strokes, Elf Power, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Arctic Monkeys, Rob Zombie, Bob Hope, Natalie Merchant, Tracy Chapman, Cake.

Food - Anything! When I go to a new restaurant I always look for the weirdest thing on the menu and order it in hopes of finding a new taste. Love North Market.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
But, really I'm a pretty open person. The biggest secret I have right now is probably that I am on this site. Have not talked to friends and family about our new adventure. I've actually stumbled on profiles of people I know if I know you in real life this part is for you .... still not sure that I want people talking about me being on the site so please don't pass it around... other than to tell me what I should put on the profile. Feel free to check with my wife if you feel the need but if you know the two of us you know that I would not be here without her being ok with it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're looking for something more than a one night stand but less than the love of your life.

You're comfortable with the idea of open relationships.

I really like smart, forward women who approach men. I don't believe that we have to stick to gender roles. Anyone who tells you that men don't like it when women make a move and want them to play hard to get is wrong. I've never met a man who would complain.
