Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was a seeker in my early years but seem to have found enough of
who I am and what the world is about that I don't do that as much
as I used to. I am some kind of blend of scientist and artist.
Since my kids were born -- they are in 7th and 9th grade -- art has
gotten the short shrift.
I'm a Dad. My kids are very very important to me. I've wanted kids
since I was young, they came late in life, and I am so very
Doing things together is my preferred way of being -- sailing,
cooking, sitting on a couch together reading or snuggling, hiking,
or most any kind of exercise. Some things can't be done together
and differing interests sometimes don't allow doing things together
but if we can, I'd like to. If you know of the 5 Love Languages
book, I have two: physical touch and quality time.
I like my work because I have enjoyable customers and since I am
self-employed, I have some flexibility in my schedule.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a self-employed IT consultant. I work part time so that I can
be home with my kids when I have them. I am working on a Master's
Degree in Mathematics. Right now I'm doing it for intellectual
stimulation but I'll be open to working in that area after my
Trying to get enough sleep, exercise, and eat healthily. And, I'm
here trying to figure out how to meet compatible women.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Understanding people, math, sailing, playing board games,
affection, being a Dad, cooking, and photography.
The first things people usually notice about me

That I'm quiet in most new situations. If there is something else,
I don't know because I haven't asked anyone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Most any kind of ethnic food. I like spicy. My two most eaten
ethnic foods are Mexican and Sushi. Movies: some old favorites are
Harold and Maude and Apocalypse Now. Used to be a Bergman lover but
haven't seen one in a long time. Love movies except for
Music: most everything except some country. These days listening to
old rock: Grateful Dead, Stones, Talking Heads, or contemporary
Celtic music. Love Willie and Lobo -- they call their music Gypsy
Boogaloo -- one guitar and one violin.
Love books. I predominately read Science Fiction and secondarily
mysteries. Love the Tony Hillerman mystery series. Used to read
self help but it's probably been 15 years since I did that
regularly. I also read recreational Math and Physics books. Loved
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My kids, affection, contact with others, something intellectually
engaging to think or talk about, the water (looking at it or
swimming or sailing), and self-care (enough sleep and exercise.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to be a good Dad. How much energy to put into dating. Math
problems -- taking upper level Math class right now. Why even
though I know I need 8 hours of sleep and need to go to bed by 10,
lots of times I don't.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I might be: practicing Aikido, at home reading, or watching a movie
out or at home.
