My self-summary
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 a bit beyond "I like sunsets." and cookie-cutter stuff like that.

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 suppose, grace.

I picture myself as 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. I imagine my strong points as being 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 me.

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 posteriors.

I love camping, picnicking 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 before.

I enjoy and respect socially concocted notions such as fashion, etiquette, and tradition. But am 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. This has made what I hold as its 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.

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 fulfilled.

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 adventures.

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.
Being modest. So, sorry; won't say any more.

Okay just kidding. Let's see. The following is mostly based on hearsay.

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. 'Ts been said I'm a good dancer (been said I'm a bad one too, but much less often; truth be told I believe I'm both, depending mostly on my mood, and, I suppose the eye of the beholder factors in as well). 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 that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
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 a fairly eloquent and oft times animated speaker.

Yet often a deadpan humorist.

That I can be quite observant.

That I'm a lot more rough and ready than it might initially seem (oh--wait--that means one o' the first things people might notice is I don't appear to be so rough an' ready. Ah well; read between the lines).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
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 Vendetta.
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 as spectacle.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
And let's just throw in wonder.
Yeah I know; kinda typical really.
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 greatest issues, from the interpersonal to the international.
On a typical Friday night I am
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 growing "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 a drink, or wandering in the woods or the streets in the moonlight, or standing 'round a fire.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Umm... lessee... How 'bout that I, like pretty much everybody, am with regularity impacted by some brand of fear. Fear of ignorance; fear of illness; fear of loneliness; fear of vulnerability; fear of judgment; etc.

BUT, what really matters is how one responds to fear, yes?

With the above in mind, it has been said, by many of those closest to me, that I am a pretty courageous individual.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Firstly you are open-minded and are courageous enough to actually reach out in light of something appealing you may have seen or read here.

I of course appreciate a partner who holds values similar to mine, but also who is possessed of a few twists and turns that can surprise, delight, and provide for perspective and straight-up education.

If you want more of what I resonate with, read on.

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 loosing 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 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 yourself.

You can be spontaneous, and you lack an extreme amount of reservation.

You are enthusiastic about outdoor things like camping and picnics and adventures.

Your relative inclinations tend to be the opposite of prudish.

You tend to be the opposite of irritable—the alternative being, for me, one of the most unpleasant aspects of a person to experience.

You believe what fulfills a relationship is not image, status nor material things.

You sincerely, earnestly strive to be honest, not only with your partner but with yourself.

You value straight communication and will not hold something important back because it is difficult to broach.

When it seems your partner can't see the forest for the trees, you aim to make your response respectful and caring.
