My self-summary
I'm a sapiosexual (Google it, I'll wait) INTP/Architect, but I get along well with extraverts. And yes, I do prefer that spelling. It's the Latin scholar in me.

Also, I'm in a committed but (very recently, as of a couple months ago) open marriage with a very cool woman, so I'm not your guy if you're looking for something exclusive. Seriously though, you'd like my wife- you should come by and see her new passionflower tattoo.
What I’m doing with my life
Exploring, figuratively and literally.

Currently working a day job as a librarian at UF, and I make pottery evenings and weekends (see https://www.etsy.com/shop/jaywiese), though dating is really cutting into my pottery time. Please don't take it personally.
I’m really good at
Finding my way around in the dark without making any noise. Draw whatever conclusions from this you will.
The first things people usually notice about me
If you're under 35, that I look like Moby when I have my glasses on.

Or, if you're over 35, that I look like Michael Stipe. I try to exploit this when I'm in Athens. Free drinks and such.

Or, if you're a postmodernist, that I look like Michel Foucault (Google him if you don't have a liberal arts degree).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Partial to films that consistently deliver an epiphanic experience upon repeated viewings:
A Clockwork Orange
2001: A Space Odyssey
American Beauty
The Big Lebowski
Fargo
Blazing Saddles
Fight Club
Citizen Kane
Lawrence of Arabia
Star Wars Trilogy (original)
Full Metal Jacket
North by Northwest
Pulp Fiction
Shawshank Redemption
Stand By Me
Koyaanisqatsi
Wizard of Oz
Seven Samurai
Singing in the Rain
Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Too many documentaries to list (Helvetica, Into Great Silence, and
Man on Wire come to mind)

TV
No TV set, but currently torrenting Breaking Bad, Adventure Time, Futurama, and Mythbusters. Also like Seinfeld, Wonder Years, X-Files, Star Trek (TOS and TNG), and The Muppet Show. Game of Thrones-curious.

Reading
SF, narrative non-fiction, & YA fiction; Cory Doctorow, Bruce Sterling, Neal Stephenson, Frank Herbert, David Sedaris, Bill Bryson, Charles Dickens, John Irving, Harry Potter, Hitchhiker's Guide

Music:
Does NPR count as music?; Cowboy Junkies; Brian Eno; Philip Glass; J.S. Bach; Palestrina; Josquin Desprez; Stars of the Lid; The Beatles (esp. Rubber Soul and later- Never get tired of Abbey Road); Johnny Cash; Bill Evans; John Coltrane; Miles Davis; 80's new wave; ambient & space music when I'm in the mood (e.g Dead Can Dance)

Food:
Anything unusual, ethnic, or regional; anything well-prepared. About the only thing I don't like is canned tuna fish.

Games
I'm a recovering game addict, so I must restrict myself to casual games (e.g. Angry Birds) and board games. Otherwise I'd get out even less that I already do.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

A place to make pots; an Internet connection; good Japanese green tea; paper & pencil for sketching; nicotine gum (cheap OTC anti-depressant); my imagination
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Objects. Sex. Systems.
On a typical Friday night I am
In the studio making pots.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I go barefoot principally because I have a fetish for my own feet, but I tell everyone it's for health reasons.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 35–54
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You want to hang out and do geeky things together
You are okay being non-exclusive
You'd just like to chat about polyamory and open marriage- we're new to this and would love to hear your advice.
