My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'll spare you the bullshit and clichés. If that's what you want the 20 profiles above and below mine are loaded with them. Instead, I'll share with you what my ex told my neighbor when I moved in here a few months ago: "You're going to enjoy your new neighbor. He's a great man."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living by the principles of my influences: Monty Python, Looney Tunes, John Muir, Mad Magazine of the 1970’s, Richard Scarry, Dr. Seuss, Dr. Who, Leo Tolstoy, Mr. Rogers, The Clash, and Tom Robbins. For all of you who say you can't summarize yourself in a sentence, there's your proof that it can be done.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The things I am good at are second nature and I don't contemplate them. Though I will say I still make for an excellent playmate. How about faults? Expressing feelings in ways that can be misconstrued, keeping in touch, planning social events, accepting praise, dispensing praise, thinking aloud, impatience, overly pragmatic. These lead people to say to say I am unemotional/heartless. Which is not true. I just checked and I have a beating heart in my chest. Then again, so does Dick Cheney, and he is a dick to the nth degree. So I'm not sure what that proves.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a nondescript person. You wouldn't notice anything about me if we passed on the street. Sometimes people notice I am missing my upper right second incisor. Never had it; I was born with 31 adult teeth. If this is an issue, it's only an issue for you. As I told the last dentist who suggested an implant, "I can eat apples, talk without a lisp, and it's really easy to floss between those two teeth. My quality of life is fine, thanks."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite book: "Still Life with Woodpecker" by Tom Robbins. Murakami, McCabe, and Oates are favorite authors.

If there was a Dewey Decimal System for fiction, Cormack McCarthy would be his own number. Ditto for Neko Case and Sufjan Stevens in music.

Favorite movie: "Once Upon a Time in the West."

When asked, "if you could be anyone else who would you choose?" I inevitably choose Tom Waits. Except I don't get cranky if you take me fishing.

I love ice cream. Repeat: love ice cream. If you think me to be date-able, ask me out for ice cream and I'll grab my coat right damn now.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dental floss, boots (I'm partial to my timber boots), a pair of warm socks, my glasses (or contacts), a steady paycheck, and a quality pillow. Honorable mention to a perfectly conditioned antique cast iron skillet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what would humanity do if all scientific progress stopped dead in its tracks today.

How we are all the same people at 5 that we are at 35 that we are at 75. We just keep learning new facts and skills and react to what happens to us until we start forgetting it all.

Why so many women post selfies taken while driving. Don't y'all realize you need to keep both hands on the wheel?

How when I passed through Chicago for the first time since leaving six months ago I realized what a dirty, smelly, cramped place it is, filled with cynical grumpy people.

I read a profile where someone in their mid-30s lists off long-term relationships with people from 6 different possessions. I don't know that a relationship that lasts a maximum of 2 years on average qualifies as long-term; one trades in a car every few years. Not people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In an effort to avoid the typical things that, according to what y'all write in this box, all OKCers do to have an atypical Friday, last Friday I went to lawnmower races.

Top that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My favorite curse word is, "jesusjumpingchristfuck."

The only thing that REALLY creeps me out is listening to a numbers station.

I don't want to be a great man.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–55
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Frankly, I cannot think of a good reason not to. (Hey, I used a double negative! My English teachers are all rolling their eyes right about now.) If you like my profile, that's fine. But profile reading doesn't build relationships. Meeting for coffee or ice cream does. I'm not looking for anything romantic at this point, but being new to Galena I'm always looking for new friends and associates in the area.
