Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Texas as a conservative Southern Baptist. Met a girl
from Seattle and moved here 24 years ago. Somewhere along the way I
turned left becoming the social and political black sheep of the
family. The girl went her separate way a year after I moved to
Seattle, but I'd already fell in love with the northwest and here
I've stayed. Not sure at which point my parents and sisters stopped
asking when I was moving back.
I've been married to the same woman (abby6964
) for 20 years. We are poly
, have an open marriage
(pick a label).
Bottom line is we date other people. Did I mention being a bit of a
I'm not religious. I believe everyone should make good choices
because that is inherently the right thing and makes us human. Not
being told what is and what is not a "good choice" and then kept in
line with the threat of an eternal time-out (damnation).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Family, girlfriend, work, playing, learning and trying new things,
I'm always looking to learn new stuff.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a really good analytical thinker which makes me very good at
computer programming which is fortunate since that pays the
I also like building things. I've built our backyard chickens quite
the coop complete with metal roof. The family decided we wanted
chickens, eggs, pets, both, ???? not sure exactly how we came to
that decision. I've also built a loft bed for my daughter and a
wheelchair ramp for my wife.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm shy when I first meet new people. It takes me a bit to warm up
and be comfortable. Unfortunately that's what people usually notice
first, that I'm quiet and reserved. That phase doesn't last long
and then they're more likely to ask what happened to that quiet
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite movie is "The Princess Bride." Other movies I really like
are Amelie, Apollo 13, Lord of the Rings trilogy, Men in Black,
TV shows include: Game of Thrones, True Blood, Myth Busters and Top
Chef. Yes, I have admitted to actually watching and liking a
reality TV show.
I don't read as much as I want because I can't stop once I start
and I will be up until 3 AM every night until I finish the book.
Books I've enjoyed are Larry Niven's Ringworld series, Octavia
Butler's Lilith's Brood series, JK Rowling's Harry Potter series,
Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series. I enjoy reading chapter books
to my son before bed (my daughter has gotten too old and reads by
herself now). I attempt to keep up a little on what's happening in
the scientific world by browsing the "Science News" weekly
magazine. I recently finished The Time Traveler's Wife, Fledgling
and The Hunger Games trilogy.
For music my interest is mostly 80's music (those formidable
college years I assume). But for the most part I'm not a music
person (maybe too much country music growing up in Texas, which is
why I also like Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash).
Foods I like are pizza, Mexican, Thai, Italian. I don't care as
much for Indian or Greek as the spices just don't agree with my
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Wouldn't say I spend a lot of time thinking about it, but lately
I've been wondering about poly-fidelity and +1 poly families. Then
there's also what to prepare for dinner when I get home.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Could be either home with the family playing board games, out with
my girlfriend or entertaining friends with dinner and more board
The boards games tend more toward the Euro style such as Agricola,
Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride and not Monopoly. I've even
converted the girlfriend. We also enjoy a night out usually
involving some type of live entertainment like plays or musicals.
