My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up here in Riverside, and I love this town. For better or worse. Don't get me wrong, I couldn't wait to get out of here when I was young, and I've elsewhere. I loved Pasadena and Chicago, but here I am.
I've spent most of my life in long term relationships, spent a lot of years keeping it together for the kids. But I'd rather be alone than unhappy.
Having said that, I've been single by design for about a year now. Just wanted to reflect and get st me. I've enjoyed my solo time, -I got through both Battlestar G and Breaking Bad- but it's time to get back out there.
So a lot of what follows has been here since way back, I've been adding to it on and off over time.
There are A LOT of words...
I'm just going to go right out and say it- I am fun as fu€ to be around. I'm not really a dinner and a movie kind of guy. First dates are for conversation, getting to know one another.
I don't often judge others, or how they live their lives, as long as no one gets hurt.
I like to mountain bike, I own an old 4x4 that I'm working on getting back in shape, as I love offroading.
I have a twisted sense of humor and at times allow crazy shit to fly out of my mouth.
I once fended off a bear with a shoe.
I read, I love old things- vinyl, video game consoles- I have a toploading nes and about thirty games... and the light gun for Duck Hunt... I just bought an old pachinko machine.
I love to make sad broken things useful again. But I'm not a hoarder or anything.
I like a lot of old man things. But then again I can hit old man me in the back of the head with a grunt-thrown rock. Sometimes you realize it was never ironic.
I love camping, roadtrips, live music, swapmeets, yardsales...
I've got myself figured out. I've got my head on straight, have a job, car, license, a clean record... I'm a grown-ass man.
And I always try and leave the bathroom as I found it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working for Mitsubishi Electric as a senior field engineer. What that means is that I drive around socal repairing industrial machines and trying to figure out why they're not working how we designed them.
I've been been doing it for over fifteen years, and I'm very good at it. It's taken me all over the us, South America, and Australia.
At this point, however, I mainly keep myself local, from San Diego to Ventura.
If you're wondering why some guy from way out in Riverside messages you, it's probably because I drive by your town a lot. I drive A LOT.
I live on my own in a little house in Riverside that I love, and I'm happy. I'm more less where I want to be.
There is also a dog. Her name is Katerina von Polkadot, and she's my eyeball-apple. She likes to be called Kat. Please do not tell her what else that means.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cracking wise.
I can fix most broken things.
I'm a madman with a yoyo. No kidding, You'd be astounded. Maybe not impressed because come on, it's a yoyo, but astounded for sure. Umm, I can juggle, tie various useful and ornamental knots... I'm terribly handy to have around.
I'm good at solving problems, but I try to let others solve their own. Usually if you nod at the right spots they figure it out on their own.
Let's just end this topic by saying that I'm a very confident man.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes. People seem to love blue eyes.
I usually am in need of a haircut.
Other than that, people flip out when I tell them my age. I've been carded by my date on more than one occasion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm not the music snob that I was when I was younger. I'll listen to just about anything except for contemporary country.
Alt-J, foals, the griswalds, twenty one pilots, Bastille, now it's overhead, fidlar, death grips, electric guest,
Neutral milk hotel, mountain goats, the shins, national, silver jews, imogene heap, deathcab, tv on the radio, the smiths, the cure, joy division, bauhaus, blur, cake, ...
Pantera, ratm, metalica, 3in of blood, corrosion of conformity, fear factory, slayer,anthrax...
old hardcore like the descendents, nofx, minor threat...
If It's got a good rhythm, hook, and/or turn of phrase-I'm in. Unless it makes me feel dirty inside.
I'll buy most any vinyl I see in good condition from a band I've heard of.
I love old timey c&w, the sort of stuff my dad made me listen to as we rolled down the road in his semi- Waylen, George Jones, Willie, Johnny (I met Johnny Cash once, in the early 90's, while working at a gas station in Beaumont, CA.. Seemed like a nice guy, I pumped his gas. He drove a late-model black Caddy.)
My favorite books... I don't know, I've read thousands...
I still reread some Dostoyevsky books from time to time. I used to be really fascinated with Russia in that time period.
The Master and the Margarita, The Foundation series was a favorite, Greg Bear, lots of pulp as well...
I don't know, shouldn't this all come out in actual conversation?
**I'll add to this section as things come to me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I hate this topic. I'm really not too attatched to many physical things. These are things I use a lot or depend on.
1.My smartphone
2.My ps3/tv/netflix/hulu
3.My loved ones (dog included)
4. My passport
5.Music
6.A wristwatch
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sex, food, and What I would do in the event of a "Night of the Comet" scenario. Here's a hint: zombies lack the physical coordination required to swim any apreciable distance.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends on whether it's solo, duo or group. maybe ps3, having adventures, trying to get a bartenders attn, dancing on cobblestones, practicing my pogonotrophy hobby, cracking wise.
I live my life like a french movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My toes are kinda hairy.
I own a pair of Heelies.
I've cried while watching "Rudy"
I was once missing an important body part, but the doctors made me a new one, so it's all good.
Sometimes I set out to make myself a couple strips of bacon and end up eating the whole package with Kat, one by one as they come off the skillet.
Oh, one last thing. I left the children line blank because I don't technically have children, per se. I have two very well adjusted and polite young adults -this isn't a step mommy kind of thing. I only mention it so as not to blow your mind later on.
I'm drama free but not trouble free...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can hold an adult conversation and find the humor that hides in everyday life.
You're not born again.
You love to laugh.
You love weirdos, and know how to wrangle them.
You are not round in shape. My mom was a big gal and I just can't get over my own hang ups... I'm not a snob looking for perfection, but i cant date round girls. Let's just say must have the ability to both canoe and horse back ride.
You're more interested in the size of my heart than the size of my schlong. (They are both soo huge) or my wallet, for that matter. Grown-up women shouldn't be looking for handouts and I'm not that sucker who's going to pay your car insurance. I've too much self respect.
If you receive a message from me, know that I've completely read your profile and think we'd have a good time on a date. I don't send out very many. I never cut and paste, and if I've lurked without contacting you, it's probably because I can't think of what to say that's any better than "I think yer purty, and I like that stuff too."
Maybe you should make it easy on me and send the above quote to me if you're interested.
PS "my husband is ok with it" is not the same as single.
