My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My twin passions are editing quality motion pictures and being an active dad to my 7 yr old son. At present, I am lucky to be able spend a good deal of my time doing both.

I am sensual and have a healthy attitude with regards to my sexuality. This doesn't make me a player (I'm not into poly), just someone who skews more European than typical American.

GOOD SUN SIGN MATCHES FOR ME: Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio (or on cusp of same).

MY ENNEAGRAM NUMBER: 6, The Loyalist.

MY LIKES: children, quality movies/tv, kissing, whole organic food, underdogs, water, real folks, wit, joy, tomboys, curly hair, deep divers, trampoline-ing, iconoclastic thinkers, skipping 'round the lake, affection, those who have my back, mavericks, fine craftsmanship, classic books, order, bucking at propriety, high culture, live theater, big hearts, making love, routine, scatological humor, british tv, minimalism, random kindness, a woman with a strong masculine side, egalitarian relationships, good Samaritans, encouragement of self-reliance, old folks who've lived, film noir, unique voices/accents and MORE.

MY DISLIKES: harming children, pretension, cravenly commercial films, marketing (aside from that done with a basket), consumption that harms the planet, greed, phonies, poor quality goods, fair weather "friends", legal rackets, plastic bags, travel junkies, shiners-on, food with a million ingredients, comic books/movies, the idea of "fashion", identity politics, most churches/groups, party thinking, propriety, green-washing marketing, the increasing leverage of the 1%, encouraging panhandling by giving on the street, knives in the back, putting on airs, crocodile smiles, video games, skin color bias, indirect people and MORE.

THOSE WHO SHOULD PROBABLY SKIP ME: The very religious, conformists and the very conventional, women who set out to have a child without a father, women who have moved away (out of state or country) from their child's father, women who would otherwise minimize a father's role in a child's life.

REMEMBER: The Golden Rule (And, no, I'm not Christian.)

Best on the quest, Martin
