Nature is a big for me. That means protecting wildlife and wildlands. Going for hikes. Checking out waterfalls and big trees. In case you're curious, the terms Varied Thrush in my moniker refer to one of the two most awesome birds around.
I would say my "religion/spirituality" is more along the lines of naturalistic pantheism, something like Thomas Jefferson and Einstein's. I am inspired by the good things of many religions, so maybe that makes me a spiritual eclectic. But that's getting a little heavy so I got to jump off that ship.
I'm always up for a coffee, a beer, shooting some pool, plenty of good walks in Olympia, and going for a hike.
I have about 10 years of college. But it doesn't matter to me what your resume looks like, but rather whether the conversation is good and fun. I've known very intelligent people that didn't make it past high school. I've known some supremely emotional intelligent people that have a hard time with multiplication. So like porn, I know smarts when I see it. (reference is Jacobellis v. Ohio). All right, I could probably come up with a better comparison. But then again, it's kind of funny.
I have three super duper awesome kids (one of whom is adopted and is equal in all ways). I share custody of these three smiling, good-huggers with my ex. One of my goals is to be the best ex husband out there and to remain the most awesome dad there is. I am not looking for a mother for them. I am looking for a good and fun match for me.
Benefits to dating a dad: 1) you get plenty of free time, 2) I won't be clingy, I got plenty of my own life going on, 3) I am fully capable of love, sensitivity, empathy, and compassion, and I practice these things every day with my kids, 4) I got my act together, and 5) you may on some days see me under stress, and I handle it great, thank you very much. :)
All right, now if you're profile says "fundamentalist Christian seeks man right now because my biological clock is ticking, loves shopping all day, tiny little yap dogs and football. If it says all that I'd say we'd go together like pesto and hot dogs. Actually, I may have to try that some day, but I think you get my point.
Clarification re liberal Christians - I believe a person can draw strength from many different religions and belief systems, and I know some of you do too.
