My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

“I could really use some caffeine,” you thought, as you pulled into the parking lot. As you walked into the coffee shop, you see a guy sitting in the corner, playing an acoustic guitar. It’s nice – you love live music. You get your coffee, then take a seat on a couch nearby, so you can listen to the music, while drinking your java.

He smiled. “Anything you’d like to hear,” he said, as his fingers worked their way up and down the guitar neck.

“Do you take requests?” you asked, a bit surprised.

“Depends on who’s asking,” he smiled, with a twinkle in his eye.

You can’t help but noticing he’s got a nice smile. And nice eyes, too. And come to think about it, a nice, deep voice. “Um…I don’t know…do you sing, too?”

He looked at you with a look from those blue eyes that seemed to reach inside and read your mind. “Sure. But I’m not really playing a gig here…not sure how they’d take to me singing.” He paused. “I’m just here because I needed to get out of the house for a bit. I work out of my home office, and sometimes I need a little human contact.”

Intrigued, you asked, “So, you’re not a professional musician? I’m surprised.”

“Oh, I’ve worked as a professional, but it’s not what I do for a living,” he replied. I run a small advertising and marketing agency. Most of my work comes from online clients, so I can work anywhere. But every so often, I just need to clear my head. I end up here, and they don’t seem to mind me playing a little…at least they’ve never complained.”

You smiled, and said, “Okay then, on that note, let’s hear you sing something.”

“Anything in particular?”

“Surprise me,” you grinned.

He starts playing something you’ve never heard before. It’s got an interesting rhythm, almost hypnotic, the way it repeats. And the words are poignant…moving. The lyrics speak to you of a longing you’ve never put into words.

“I’ve never heard that before. Who plays that?”

Wryly, he smiled and said, “I do.”

“No, I mean, who wrote it?”

“I did.”

“Really? Wow…why haven’t you recorded that? I’d buy it.”

“You’re very kind. I’ve written a lot of music. Just don’t have much time to do anything with it,” he said. “Would you excuse me for a second, and watch my guitar? I need to get something to drink.”

He stood up, and that’s when you notice how tall he is. “Hmm…must be around 6’4” or so,” you think. “I like tall guys.”

He returned with a drink. You look at him and ask, “So…do you come here a lot?”

He grinned, “If I’d said that, you’d accuse me of trying a pickup line on you.”

You blushed a little. “I’m…uh…no, I didn’t mean…that is…”

“…It’s okay. I’m just giving you a hard time.” He started to put the guitar in it’s case. “I play some open mic around town, and the occasional gig. But it’s mostly for fun. My full time job keeps me chained in front of a computer, designing, animating, and writing.”

You pause, while thinking how to ask a question without being too obvious. “So…what do you do when you’re not designing or playing music?”

“Not much, actually.”

“A stay at home with the wife type," huh?

“Nope. Divorced dad, with a soon-to-be empty nest. Looking forward to that, actually. As much as I love my daughter, it will be nice to have more free time.”

You smile. “I hear you.”

He looked at his watch. “It’s getting late,” he said. You frown a little, somewhat disappointed that you can’t keep talking to the first really interesting guy you’ve met in quite a while.

“Look, I’d love to stay and chat, but I’m frankly getting a little hungry.” He paused, and looked into your eyes. “I’d really love to continue this conversation over a meal. Would you let me buy you dinner?”

You smile. “I thought you’d never ask!”

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I run a small advertising/marketing agency in McKinney. I'm trying to turn it in to a larger agency. And I'm a full-time dad to a brilliant, talented, vivacious, teenage daughter. Every now and then, I get out and play music in local clubs.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...a lot of things. Graphic design, computer programming, music – performing, songwriting, teaching, orchestrating, arranging, creative writing, woodworking, designing, voiceovers, and a bunch of other things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out! that I'm intelligent and articulate. Or they notice that I'm 6'4" and have very dark brown hair, a mustache and goatee, and blue eyes. I'm easy – I'll take it either way. If you meet me online, you'll first notice that I'm unashamedly a Conservative and fan of the U.S. Constitution - and I'm not shy about expressing myself politically. (Oh, and if you're a Liberal/Progressive I really don't think we'll hit it off.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand is my favorite book outside the Bible. I'm not an Ayn Rand fanboy (she was a hypocrite in my book, and I can't resolve her philosophy with the way she lived her life), but I like her ideas on self-reliance and the value of creativity and hard work. I'm also into mysteries, suspense, humor, and technical books.

I think the early films of Mel Brooks, Monty Python & the Holy Grail, and the Blackadder comedies are some of the funniest things ever put on film. I'm also a fan of suspense, thrillers, mysteries, and other movies that make you think.

I love a good steak, almost any kind of seafood, and most kinds of meat. I've been called a 'meatatarian' or a 'carboholic.' Not into salads. Ever. (Q: if vegetarians eat vegetables, what do humanitarians eat?) I'm also a pretty decent cook.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my daughter
my musical instruments (and I have a lot of them – guitars, drums, vibes, keyboards...)
my iPhone/iPad/MacBook Pro
my woodworking tools
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whirled peas and shaving the whales. (Sorry. That question sounds like something they'd ask a beauty pageant contestant, and I couldn't help myself.) I dunno...I spend a lot of time thinking, period. And I'm all over the map about the subject matter. Perhaps the best way to answer that question is for us to have a free-wheeling conversation on any number of topics. It's sort of "puddle of consciousness", I suppose...I seem to have trouble with moving water.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. Which is a shame, because I'd much rather be having some serious fun with my significant other. Where ARE you, anyway? Haven't you gotten my messages?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That would be telling. And I'm NOT telling. Well...I'll tell you, but not here...well...okay. Since it's YOU, I'll tell you. I do character voices. So if you've always wanted people to hear Bullwinkle, Hank Hill, Ralph the Dog, Kermit, or Yogi Bear on your voice mail message, I'm your guy.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're tall (come on...I'm 6'4". if you're under 5'6", I'm gonna be staring at your scalp when we dance). If you see yourself as attractive, very intelligent, with a quick wit, a kind heart, and you enjoy talking, as well as music and art. You are passionate about life, but see the humor in most things, then we need to talk!

Full disclosure: Tattoos and smoking are a total turn-off for me. (Sorry...just rather be up-front about it.) I prefer to date Christians.

Good luck with your search!
