My self-summary
I'm an outgoing guy. I swim, hike, and bike a lot. At home I like to cook and do house projects. In winter, watching movies under a blanket on the couch with someone is perfect. A night out is fun occasionally too but I cannot drink much and never smoke. I volunteer for the Walker Art Center and various other nonprofits.

I love learning new things, and am fascinated by creative men. In the end, I think I will land in a relationship with someone confident, smart, and good at communicating.

I respect men who are genuinely concerned about the common good, even if we disagree about how to achieve that. Your politics and faith do not have to look just like mine, but I hope you care about politics and living a good life.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to be a good uncle to my many nieces and nephews, making the garden look good without lots of work, biking as much as possible in summer, thinking up with ways to deal with Minnesota winters (Puerto Vallarta is my favorite coping mechanism), volunteering for various groups.
I’m really good at
Riding my bike on Minneapolis' amazing bike trails
Finding ways to entertain myself
Chatting up stangers
The first things people usually notice about me
My un-Minnesota tendency to talk with strangers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Heaven's Coast (I'd give anything to write like Mark Doty), The Death of Ivan Ilych, anything by Jane Austen, The World Without Us, Call Me by Your Name, Anna Karenina, Me Talk Pretty One Day, The Big House.

Movies: Angels in America (technically a television program), The Hours, Out of Africa, Shortbus, Redemption, Lost in Translation

Music: public radio, Classic 80's, David Gray, Bronski Beat, 89.3 The Current, Cities 97 Acoustic Sunset, Russian Liturgical (yes, you read that right; no, you have never seen that listed before on this site).

Food: Thai, Eastern European, pork anything, sweet delicious Dairy Queen (not all three simultaneously though)
The six things I could never do without
Only six? Okay here goes:
1. Friends and family to share life with
2. Intelligent books and magazines
3. Healthy food
4. Sunshine
5. Home (as opposed to just a house)
6. Neighbors (as opposed to just a neighborhood)
6.1 My bike
6.2 My incredible dog Clara Vologda
6.3 Exercise
6.4 A room with a view (no, not the movie)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Language and its limitations, history, our amazing privileges as Americans, architecture, transportation and community in the inner cities, summer. How good my friends are to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a happy hour with friends, going out to dinner, or walking the dog around a city lake, especially if it is warm and the men have their shirts off.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not in a hurry, but I want a partner again someday. I know what it is to be in love and I want to feel that again.
I’m looking for
  • Gay guys only
  • Ages 30–55
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you think I look and sound like someone you want to meet. Let's face it, first impressions do matter. If you are a man who can hold his own in a conversation, it's worth taking some risks and stepping outside your comfort zone to meet new men.
The worst that can happen is you realize instantly what a loathesome, undateable monster I am.
