At other times, I pursue serious topics of conversation, which is why I attend book clubs, debate groups, and attend lectures. Most of my friends are well educated professionals; that's because those are the people I tend to meet. However, there are exceptions andI don't believe class or education level should divide us. I keep myself fit and muscular, running (as a warm up) and lifting weights at the gym 3 to 4 times a week. In addition, I tend to follow a healthy diet, but I don't believe in a strict adherence to one. When i hear the calling of coffee ice cream or Cadbury mini eggs, I come running.
My favorite form of art is ceramics; I'm proficient at throwing on the wheel (Yeah, think of that scene during the movie 'Ghost'). In case you haven't figured it out yet, I sure do love movies, I catch one every few weeks during the summer months.
I've read online that OKC is a general purpose dating site, and that Match.com is more serious. So, let me take a moment to be clear about my intentions. I'm on the serious side of the dating spectrum. Sure, there's nothing wrong with keeping things simple and light; I did include short term dating, it can help pass the time (say no more, say no more, wink wink, nudge nudge). However, my focus is on finding something long term. If you've ruled that out, do me a favor and please go find someone else.
Its been almost 2 years since my ex and I parted ways, and I consider myself ready to date. Please be ready to put your past where it belongs, and be ready to move on with your life. I could ramble on endlessly with a self description and my musings, but instead, I'll end by listing off some of my favorite things.

Favorite crazy inconsistent facts about myself: I'm an odd mix, with a PhD in engineering, and a history of competitive body building, wrestling, and power lifting. Spiritually, I'm agnostic/atheist, and yet I served on the board of my congregation and cherish my heritage. I'm considered very thought provoking and intellectual by my peers, but they haven't seen me cheer developments on the walking dead, or giggle at silly jokes on the Daily show.
My circumstances: Divorced, employed, professional, non-smoker, light social drinker, very healthy, just starting to get back into the dating game.
