Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a single male with no history of marriage or children. I did
go to Vegas with the intention of marrying a showgirl, but that
didn't pan out. I am a healthy person with a healthy lifestyle
until bacon is within reach. I don't smoke or use drugs. I do like
a drink or two with good friends every once and a while.
Lets try this again: I like to people-watch in crowded places, only
I don't like crowded places. I like old things. There was a time
when objects were made to last a lifetime. My interests get me
fully involved. I know many people, but I have few friends. I don't
like TV shows that don't have a conclusion at the end of their time
slot. I remember when bologna had red plastic on the outside edge
and MTV played videos. I like odd socks.
Socks_with_dots is modest to a fault. Never bragging about his
(immense) skillset, (abundant) cleverness or (razor-sharp) wit but
always happy to spread his joy for the things and activities he
cares about, often in ways that could cost you a heap of cash if he
wasn't your friend. As such, I thought I'd jump in and sing his
praises for a bit.
Socks_with_dots' fascination with what he terms "old things" seems
to stem from a reverence for the classic; that which has stood the
test of time to keep competing favorably against the latest
development from the bleeding edge. Classic motorcycles,
steel-framed bicycles, diesel engines, clothes made of natural
fiber, etc. No disposable culture for him, please. If it can't be
maintained, repaired, modded and/or upgraded, Socks_with_dots can't
be bothered. On a hunch, I'd say Socks_with_dots looks for similar
qualities in a mate: elegance, strength, versatility, adaptability,
classicism. I further suspect Socks_with_dots' embrace of hard work
in maintaining what he cares about would also extend to romance and
relationships. However, I don't think any of the above pertains to
the age of the women he prefers. Ladies, use good judgment when
deciding if you are of a suitable age to date
I am creative, suigeneris, and bacon
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life in a short timeline is school, work, school, work, work,
work, laid off, decompress, work at something I love. It has worked
out for the best and I see a future doing something in the same

Socks_with_dots is the kind of guy you want to have on hand if
you intend to survive a zombie apocalypse. He is a maker, a solver
of problems, a remover of obstacles, a whiz and an intellectual in
a way that many book-educated types could use to emulate. Possessed
of a unique ingenuity and a knack for making the laws of physics do
his bidding, his solutions tend to be elegant, thorough,
sustainable and reusable. You want it to work right forever and
look good all the while? Ask Socks_with_dots.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
How do I know the answer to this? People always comment on my
shoes. It has been said that I wear "old" shoes. I like plain
leather or cloth shoes. I have also been told that upon first
meeting me, people are not sure if I am serious or joking. The
other day a first impression was that I have a spooky dog. Ok,
another one, I have a rugby shirt that a stranger called "fashion
vomit." I kind of like that shirt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like books with tangible history that are written from other
points of view. I also read books about industry as well as some
sci-fi and mysteries. If it's a good read, I can't put it
Lately I find myself watching more movies from the 40s and 50s. I
think it is either I don't need special effects to be entertained
or beauty didn't have to be so dirty in the films of
Music from the 80s works best for me. I do like all types as long
as the singer doesn't whine or belittle.
food=yes? You just can't say yes to food these days because of
television showing people eating the oddest things.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Sun. Good company. A bicycle. The ability to travel. Tall trees
that can be climbed. Clean underwear. Banana pudding. Flip-flop
annihilation ray gun. Why six when this list could go on and
Let's elaborate about Socks_with_dots' interest in traveling:
Socks_with_dots has an insatiable curiosity and an explorer's
spirit, making him a natural globe-trotter. Socks_with_dots has
been throughout the US (which people often forget has hugely
diverse peoples, locales and terrain right inside its borders) as
well as to the UK and South America. His favored travel activities
include sight-seeing, intentionally getting lost in order to
discover cool things, outdoorsy activities (cycling, camping,
hiking, rock climbing, running, etc), cultural stuff like museums
and art galleries and, of course, sampling local cuisine. (Wanna
make him happy? Take him back to the British Museum and then maybe
hop the Eurostar for a few days gawking at The Louvre and pedaling
down the Champs-Elysees.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I am. Why do I ride bicycles with people who have personal
trainers? So sore.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am the work schedule "yes-man", which means I can work Friday
night. Heck, I'm single and that is why I am here. If I am not out
with friends then you can find me working on an old motorcycle or

Smart women with the ability to have fun getting dirty and then

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are an educated woman, non-smoker, healthy and drug free. I
know it sounds shallow and crude, but I am tired of self-medicated,
smoking drunks that can't hold a conversation (The Buckhead type).
Shhhh, might get in trouble for that one.
