My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hosting dinner parties.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My un-Minnesota tendency to talk with strangers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Heaven's Coast (I'd give anything to write prose like Mark Doty), The Death of Ivan Ilych, anything by Jane Austen, 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, 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)

Television: Downton Abbey is excellent on many levels. Elementary is amusing.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Only six? Okay here goes:
1. Friends, family, travel buddies
2. Intelligent books. magazines, and conversation
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 absolutely incredible wonder-dog Clara who still keeps me amused after 15 years. She is the bestest!
6.3 Exercise, including yoga
6.4 A room with a view (no, not the movie)
6.5 The terrific Masters swimmers who share my lane and listen to my stories
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
History, architecture, transportation, community, summer, how good my friends are to me, how many projects my century-old home needs, did I remember to let the dog back in before heading to work?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Happy hour, out to dinner, or walking the dog around a city lake.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
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.
