My self-summary
I've dated enough women to know what I want in a partner. Does this describe you: While you’ve definitely got a great education and probably a career plan, you are certainly not a workaholic. You’re smart enough to talk to me (and keep up), realistic enough to understand that we won’t always agree (nor is that something you want), and not the type to get bitter when I seem intransigent. Also -- this is key -- you know how to relax and can give me space in my hammock sometimes.

Also, you're probably a little snarky. Maybe you're more than a little snarky.
What I’m doing with my life
Non-Work: Reading. Fixing up my house. Trying out hikes in my neighborhood. Looking for a good French conversation group -- parles-tu?
I’m really good at
Listening, staying calm, and repairing broken things. Usually, but not always in that order -- it’s amazing how often in life those skills are useful.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quiet until I have something to say.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Mostly I just don't think TV is worth the trouble of wading through all those commercials (I've never had a relationship with a cable company). I make exceptions for Sunday's on Fox: The Simpsons, Family Guy, etc. are favorites. I get a bunch of HBO shows on DVD from Netflix: Big Love, Carnivale, The Sopranos, Mad Men, and The Wire (fantastic) are recent picks.

I'd usually rather watch a movie at home with a thematically appropriate cocktail rather than go to the theatre. According to Netflix, I like movies that are "gritty, foreign, and/or starring Billy Bob Thorton." But I promise that I'm much easier-going than that might suggest.
The six things I could never do without
A pet (currently a grey cat named Spirit); occasional vacations; sheets cleaned not less than weekly; a fun car; a hammock or in cooler months a hot tub (i.e. the winter hammock).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Projects. I have a 107 year old Victorian and a Range Rover. There's always something to fix. Typically a leak.
On a typical Friday night I am
Somehow recharging. Happy hours on Pearl are a favorite, going out for a nice dinner, sometimes just sitting at home with a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
An injury sustained while kiting once sent me to the emergency room.
You should message me if
You think we might have something in common; you want to challenge me to a Scrabble match; you own a big friendly dog; you're more tender than everybody else assumes; you have some fun fact that you don't think I'd know; you'd like to learn something random from me; or you also use semicolons to connect long lists.

I am especially interested if you own a tandem bicycle.

You live reasonably close to Boulder.
