My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi. I'm a 61 year old divorced father of two bright and independent young adults and it's time to find someone to share life with again. I'm in excellent physical shape, have a stable job and a new house. I think of myself as creative and passionate and try to be kind and caring towards the people around me.

In the last two years I have become incredibly close friends with a couple in the UK. We've become traveling companions and I've discovered I feel more at home in the European culture than I do in this country on most days to the point that I intend to spend a great deal of time traveling there and could even consider retirement abroad. I have expanded my dating search to include parts of Europe I'm culturally aligned with. I would love to find long distance friends, possible traveling companions, and of course more if chemistry fits.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For my vocation I'm a computer programmer. My primary hobby is music. I play guitar and keyboard and sing and write songs. Love to travel when I can get the time off and enjoy hiking and photography while I'm out and about. If you'd like to hear a sampling of my music, go to https://soundcloud.com/art-martin . For a sampling of my photographic hobby, here's a link https://www.flickr.com/photos/art_martin/.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
pretty much anything I set my mind to. I play, sing, and write music, seem to have a good eye for photography, sports come easy to me, I can fix or build anything, seem to be able to write creatively and eloquently.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well it would seem strange to comment about physical things so I say that I know I have a very quick and eloquent sense of humor and can read people like a book. Generally can sense that spark in people that says they're a cut above the rest within a few minutes of talking to them and then they get my complete attention.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Oh my word, there have been so many over the years and my list would change depending on the month or day I was asked. Recently I've been enjoying catching up on past seasons of TV shows I missed cause I just don't sit in front of a TV anymore. Netflix is wonderful for that. Have watched Breaking Bad, Weeds, Firefly, MI5, and Mad Men. As far as music I tend to go for some complexity of structure in music, rich harmonies, intricate chords, and talented instrumentation. I grew up on groups like the Moody Blues, Kansas, Deep Purple, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, the Eagles.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My boys.
Love.
Passion.
Music (listening and playing)
My health and fitness.
Ever expanding knowledge.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I am an addict to the study and understanding of human nature. History, religion, creativity, acting, deception, romance, passion.... all fascinate me and I try each day to understand the people around me just a little bit more.

I get engaged politically and often passionately in places like Facebook/blog sites. I will take on bullies. In today's climate I'm considered liberal or progressive but in a normal environment am rather centered. We haven't been in a normal environment for decades. You should not watch Fox News for your information or we'll have a problem. If you idolize Rush, Hannity, Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, etc. I'll have a very hard time taking anything you say politically seriously.

I am an atheist. Not an agnostic or someone that isn't sure but an absolute non-believer in any gods and the notion of an afterlife. That has nothing to do with my morals or ethics. I'm a firm believer in the notion of the Golden Rule and/or karma and have a very compassionate and empathic side. I am in wonder and awe of the universe around us and look for scientific answers to the why's of life. I tend to be very compatible with religious and spiritual people as long as they are not evangelical although I could offend from time to time during my outrage over fundamentalists and people trying to tie religion to government.

That's the warts and all picture. I'm human, imperfect, passionate, full of myself at times, highly sensual, deep, stupidly honest, keenly intellectual, impatient sometimes because life is getting shorter, loyal and giving. I'm hoping for the same but not a clone. Differences add spice. Serious red flags add guaranteed failure.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Why be typical?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I find this to be a strange thing to fill out. What someone puts here is PUBLIC so the thing you'd admit to would no longer be private. Doesn't mean it's wrong but private and intimate things are meant to be shared with people you have deep bonds with if at all.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think there's a potential that you'd amaze me.

OK, a note for Christian women out there since I've now had a few experiences. If you are a non-judgmental happy and secure Christian woman who's in the religion for the pageantry, the community, the music, etc. and could care less what others believe as long as their lives are ethical and kind, we will get along just fine. However, if you feel sad for me because I don't believe in one of the thousands of gods of history, including the Christian version, and feel that my life is incomplete or I have no sense of amazement and awe about the world and universe around me and can't possibly be ethical and moral without some authoritarian magic big brother looking over my shoulder, then you're a condescending snot no matter how gently or lovingly you put that. It should be noted that I don't get that attitude from the Jewish, Buddhist, Wiccan, non-religious but spiritual potential dates out there, only the Christians. (Oh and if there were Muslim women on here I'm sure the experience would be much the same) To all of you that have that holier than thou attitude, let me wish you the best of luck finding someone just like you although you should probably know that judgmental Christian men don't think much of women. You'll probably find a much higher percentage of misogynists, abusers, control freaks and liars among that crowd. Oh, and the ones that scream the loudest about the evil of gay people are probably the most likely to crave exactly that. If I've offended anyone with this paragraph then good. Stay away. We will not be a match.
