Similar Users

My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Charming and clever. Smart and sensible. Casually considerate, constantly compassionate. Sometimes sardonic, seldom serious. Curious, but careful. Self-deprecating, but secure. Cheerfully complicated, seeking similar.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living out my dreams, apparently. Hopefully helping others find and fulfill their own.

If my life had a soundtrack, it might sound something like this. Lately it sounds a lot like this, with more stops and starts (I'm learning!). Or this, because it's claymation, it's cold, and I live in their town.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a concept artist in the entertainment industry, and the word on the street is that I'm really, really good at what I do.

Philosophically, I'm really good at balancing wisdom with wonder. And responsibility with a little recklessness.

I'm still pretty good at old-fashioned four-by-four rollerskating. And carving downhill on a dancer-length longboard.

I'm good at playing the piano, and certainly enjoy it more now than I did a long time ago.

And it seems that I'm good at teaching art and design principles to my friends' children. (Complementary colors are frenemies!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like books that explore or explain the human condition.

I like movies about nobility and sacrifice. Sometimes with explosions.

I like irony, sarcasm, and satire, but I think sincerity is funnier.

I like games that encourage cooperation more than competition.

I like music that takes me to another time and place. Rio de Janeiro in the sixties. Philadelphia in the seventies. Manchester in the eighties. Bristol in the nineties. Paris in the oughts. Space in the future?

I like French for breakfast or brunch, Vietnamese for lunch, and Japanese or Korean for dinner. I really like barbecue, Texas Hill Country style, for lunch and dinner. I love Mexican for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A four-legged friend.
A creative time or place or means to meditate.
An appreciation of life's absurdities.
An opportunity for honest introspection.
An eye for silver linings.
Kindness, plain and simple.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What my next challenge will be, and how to enjoy it.
Why things are the way they are.
How stuff works.

Which is better...
... contentment or fulfillment?
... joy or equanimity?
... courage or fearlessness?
... reason or intuition?
... knowledge or faith?
... order or chaos?
... Stoicism or Buddhism?
... peanut butter or chocolate?
... knowing what you want, or wanting what you have?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
... lately, eating a reindeer sausage pizza at Jack Sprat in Girdwood, Alaska. Or mapping out the gallery scene over Loco Locos burritos in Portland, Oregon. Or watching stars overhead from the Esalen springs in Big Sur, California.

... usually, creating things. Or making mischief.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I take Improvisational Tribal Style bellydancing classes and work with power tools. I'm an atheist who goes to church almost every Sunday. I'm a nerd aesthete and a creative athlete. This is the kind of thing I mean by 'cheerfully complicated'.

And I firmly believe that the electronic cigarette is the most under-appreciated medical advancement of the 21st Century.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you see anything you like in The Menu (album).

... you wish online dating was more like a virtual cocktail party and less like shopping on Amazon. Or playing the odds on a poker site.

... you like the scent of rain on asphalt in a warm summer breeze. Or the sound of carefree laughter in another room. Or the sight of a harvest moon settling into the ocean. Or the taste of pumpkin cookies with spiced frosting fresh from the bakery. Or the touch of a welcome hand at the small of your back. I like these things too. :-)
