My self-summary
These are reductive. Does anyone else enjoy the sweet, sweet art of packaging and selling yourself? I don't care for it. I'm betting you don't particularly care for it either.

On the flip side, nobody is forcing us to do it. We transform bland, empty space on a server into a picture of ourselves. Can I transcend a well-rutted format and leap out of the noise with a picture of a real human? Inspire the other lonely hearts to say "dang. I wanna get a beer with that one? And that headshot? double dang."

I'm a fan of a cold beer, good food, a good headshot and a sales pitch that isn't afraid to show a little quirk. Let's do this.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a great job. I run the stage production crew at a contemporary art museum, and love it. I have two daughters that I'm raising to be clever and resourceful. I write plays, stories, letters, articles, testimonials, speeches and personal references. I try not to be a smart-ass, but I don't try very hard. I despise sacred cows. I like real cows just fine.

I keep my tongue in my cheek, but my heart on my sleeve.
I'm honest, passionate and kind. I'm interested in someone with nuance, integrity, humor and a zeal for life.

I'm looking for someone fantastic for right now. I'm looking for a fantastic right now to blossom into a beautiful and supportive long-term. I'm looking for a beautiful long-term that grows into an amazing forever.

I'm not afraid of your contradictions, you'd be a lot less interesting without them.

Palpable sense of mischievous delight in the world a must.
I’m really good at
Running, writing, cooking, clove hitch, raising girls, mixing drinks, making out, public speaking, board games, swimming to shore, singing, pressing my luck, trivia nights, bench press, apologizing, climbing, fixing the car, organizing a shelf, carrying heavy stuff, that thing that's right on the line between crass and charming. Yep, that thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
My long flowing locks. oh. There's a profile shot up there? Alright, not so much locks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. Whether a few semesters of semiotics in high school could get you AP credit towards regular otics.
On a typical Friday night I am
Running a show, hanging out with my daughters, looking for top notch cocktails/ art projects/ films/ events. Or reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm the shyest "life of the party" I know. Or maybe it's the other way around...

I'm probably also the most energetic mellow guy you'll meet.
That also may be more accurately reversed.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–48
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You aren't afraid of your own awesomeness.

(who am I kidding? We're all a little afraid of our own awesomeness. Possibly also snakes, dates, public speaking, the dark, terminal illness, conflict, heights, commitment, The Tea Party, the ravages of time, the indifference of the universe and zits.)

Amend that. Message me if you're willing to take a good honest crack at being unafraid of your own awesomeness.
