My self-summary
Be honest – are you really interested in what I wrote here, or are you just looking at the pictures and comparing vital stats to your “shopping list” of must-have requirements?

Now, since you’re still reading…

I’m at a great point in my life – work and career are stable, friends and family are healthy and relatively happy. I enjoy traveling and take a few trips a year to explore (last year was Hawaii and San Fran, this year is Iceland, next year and where next, who knows? Maybe we can plan a next trip together…). I love my time with friends, whether we’re checking out a winery, having a poker night, going to a festival or just hanging out on a dockboat with a few beers. I have a creative side that presents itself in writing or the occasional drawing, and even have some of my artwork hanging around the house. I lean to the political left, refuse to take life that seriously and tend to joke or make fun of everything…including myself (if you can’t laugh at yourself, what can you?). I’m quick witted, smart and can challenge anyone to a contest of famous or obscure movie lines. I love the beach as much as I love a heavy snowfall (even more now that I can telecommute). I have a soft spot for dogs, kids seem to like me and I never hold a grudge, carry a torch or keep emotional baggage around for very long – my motto is “live, learn and move on.” I'm not easily offended and pride myself on having a pretty eclectic mix of friends (I have no idea how I meet some of these people, but they're all awesome). Finally, I'm known among my friends for being VERY good at reading people, so don't try to bullshit me, because I can smell crazy.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a proposal specialist/manager/coordinator/writer, so I work for "beltway bandits" (i.e., government contractors). It isn't always "sexy" work, but it pays well and let's me have some fun. I have high hopes of getting back into my writing, but when you do that for a living, sometimes the last thing you want to see at the end of the day is MS Word.

I've also gotten bit by the travel bug for the past few years - 2011 was France (Bordeaux and Paris), last year was San Francisco and this year is Iceland. I even keep a travel blog (wineabout.livejournal.com), and want to find a way to market it more (I'd like to get paid for my hobby).
I’m really good at
Making jokes, procrastinating, cooking (you won't see me on Top Chef, but I can make a few things pretty well), writing, sometimes drawing, cleaning (don't fall off your chair - a guy who cleans, but it's true - OCD is a bitch to live with sometimes), and have a good memory for movie quotes (as in, really good).

I'm also good at reading people (facial expressions, body language, etc.). Don't try to bullshit me, I can smell crazy.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I don't look like David Bowie...

And when people walk into my place, two things commonly happen: 1) they note that I'm a neat freak, and/or 2) my sense of interior design often elicits the question "are you sure you're not gay?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Star Wars (original trilogy), Indiana Jones, Casablanca, The Usual Suspects, The Godfather, Office Space, The Hangover, The Big Bang Theory, Time Bandits (look it up, it's a great Terry Gilliam movie), The Fisher King (another Gilliam flick), Archer, Banshee, The Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels, Hemingway, Shakespear, Christopher Moore, Anthony Bourdain, U2, The Rolling Stones, and 80s music, Arrested Development and Firefly.
The six things I could never do without
Music, my bed, sex (roll your eyes, but admit it, it's great), wine, friends and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I want for dinner.

Trying to apply the laws of physics to movies and getting irritated when they're clearly being broken or ignored.

How many angels can stand on the head of a pin.

If Lois Lane is such a good reporter, how can she not spot Superman hiding behind a pair of glasses as Clark Kent?

When did self-portraits in bathroom mirrors replace those god-awful "Glamor Shots?"

Whether I find "tramp stamps" attractive or not (I like tattoos, I have a couple myself, but the jury is still out on the notorious ones some people get).

Also, why the same people keep checking out my OKC profile but don't contact me? C'mon now...don't be shy...I'm mostly harmless.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with a few friends for happy hour, seeing a good 80s cover band at a bar, or crashing at home with a good movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There is no shortage of things on this list that have interesting stories behind them, but you'll have to get to know me a lot better (or buy me a few drinks) before I'll talk about them.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–45
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
If you agree with RFK's assertion "There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?"

You consider arrogance, intolerance and closed-mindedness to massive turn offs.

You're not a low-self esteem type who wants free therapy about some douchebag you can't get over.

You have a car and can drive it (seriously, I dated someone who couldn't...it sucked and I'm still being teased about that by friends and family).

You swear like a drunk Marine on shore leave (okay, maybe not that bad, but don't be all squeamish).

You know what Meatloaf wouldn't do when he sings "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)"
