Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Thanks for checking out my profile. This part is looooong, but if
you read it you just might get an idea of me beyond "I like
sunsets." and cookie-cutter stuff like that.
If you're checkin' me out I strongly suggest you click through to
my pictures and read their captions. They show much about me and
could be a bit confusing without context.
Concerning the flying side-kick picture posted: I joke that I am
proficient in "ha lee wuud kung fu" but I'm not a martial artist
nor do I espouse violence. The image is relevant to my personality
though, as I do appreciate and aspire to kinetic style, and, I
I am an easy going man who is fascinated by the human condition and
awed and enthused by the beauty and complex interconnectivity of
this thing we call existence. Many have told me my strong points
are my sense of humor, my personality, my intellect, and my
perceptiveness. I am also exceedingly loyal and
honest---occasionally to my own detriment—and perhaps above all I
look for and deeply appreciate these qualities in those close to
I see many kinds of humor within the serious to the absurd, and I
love to ferret it out with, or for, others. This has frequently
been known to result in the mirthful detachment of some associated
I love camping, picnicking, canoeing or perhaps mostly just
rambling around and exploring in the outdoors. Conversely, I
appreciate what the big city has to offer, especially when it
provides for culinary/cultural experiences I've not had
I enjoy and respect socially concocted notions such as fashion,
etiquette, and tradition. But I'm perhaps a bit too independent to
be unquestioningly bound by them or to take them inordinately
seriously—unless respect for others calls for it.
I was raised by a feminist artist. This has made what I hold as its
very positive mark in my creed.
I eschew crappy food that pretends not to be crappy. A fast food
hamburger is not terribly pretentious. Some store bought cheesecake
with a name like "Artisan Ovens" and a three finger ingredients
list, is indeed.
I am interested in, and like to prepare high quality food. But as
implied, occasional lower quality food is by no means beneath me,
unless it is because I am devouring it.
I do have discerning tastes regarding many things beyond food, but
I am not a snob nor do I need those tastes to be constantly
I would not call myself very materialistic.
When I hang with someone, and we groove on one another, I find that
our time together is often like a series of little
Perhaps adventure awaits?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In 2008 I traversed, exclusively on foot, 3600 miles from coast to
coast across the united states. This took me 13 months.
I did so because I wanted to connect with all kinds of people, both
face to face and via a website I set up.
My main objective was to talk with, and to encourage conversation
amongst, said folks about what might be defined as the evolution of
the human perspective or, in other words, the growth of how we as
human beings see ourselves... each other... our civilization... and
the natural world.
It has been hard to get to the following due to some of the life
situations I've been dealing with, but things seem to be settling
down a bit. So my overall present life goal is to improve (vastly)
the website associated with my walk, and to write a book about my
journey, the concepts that compelled me, and the people and
situations I found myself immersed in.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Modesty, so, sorry, I won't say any more.
S' kidding. Let's see. The following is mostly based on
I am apparently a pretty fair conversationalist. I'm good at
understanding people and situations. I've been told I can be pretty
dang entertaining. I am a pretty innovative thinker and problem
solver. 'T's been said very often that I'm a good dancer. I am a
fairly decent singer. I am presently a damn loyal friend, brother,
and son. I have a prodigious capacity for loyalty to a mate,
although obviously this remains currently untapped. I have a fairly
high level of physical prowess, and I am "really good" at enjoying

My nickname could be "Slim". Incidentally, the option "Thin" under
my profile details was, I suppose, the "Body type" that most
closely describes me. But I suggest "slim, but muscular" would be
closer to the mark.
Anyway, that I'm also a fairly eloquent and oft times humorously
Yet often a deadpan humorist as well.
That I can be quite observant.

Oh man; I don't really have any real favorites and not a lot of
what I've liked is coming to mind. I liked monty Python's Meaning
of Life though Im not a huge Python fan in general. I liked the
fast runner, Brazil, Fargo, No country for Old Men, V for
My tastes run the gamut really, but I don't go in for pretension
and although action movies are somewhat of a guilty pleasure for
me, I'm not one at all for a lot of highly realistic type violence

Wait—am I waxing nerdy again?
And companionship and love—really high on my list actually.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Human relationships and behavior, and the elusive hearts of our

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No such thing really.
I could be doing any number of things on my perpetually renewing
"to do" list. I could be having or cooking dinner and/or perhaps
watching a movie with a friend or few. I could be reading a book. I
could be dancing, or playing pool, or sharing in a drink, or
wandering in the woods or the streets in the moonlight, or standing
'round a fire, to name a few things.

I myself am by no means perfect nor am I looking for a perfect
person. This life can be any combination of pursuing, achieving,
and losing ground on who we want to be. But someone who is
comprised of or sincerely aspires to any of the following certainly
gets my notice.
You are fit or trim, adventurous, independently minded and strong,
yet also engaged with and appreciative of your femininity.
You understand all are helplessly bound by a reasonable amount of
human fallibility, and have the ability to at once honor and
forgive this in your partner and, very importantly, in
