My self-summary
I'm honest, responsible, caring, and respectful. I'm looking to make friends as well as explore meaningful relationships. Looking to meet people who appreciate as well as make arts and crafts. Introspective as well as energetic and spunky.

I'm curious and like to learn how thing work, be it: relationships, the environment, science or the world. I am comfortable talking about nearly anything. I am very comfortable and content where water and forests meet. Meeting new people excites me.

Craft is a term used to describe something well made, not quickly, and often by hand. I understand that craft, through practice, can lead to mastery. This striving and improvement process mixed with mindfulness, has for me, brought notable benefits as well as opened up my creativity.

In the craft arena, I'd like to find a metal smith and glass blower to make and share projects with.

I am looking for people to share life with, bike with, in line skate with, walk with, and go to galleries with. I'd say swim with but there's not a lot of interaction in swimming laps. In addition to striving, I also like to have fun and just cut loose now and then.

I may be a bit understated in my approach to life and self description, I think it's my Nordic roots, nevertheless I aim high.
What I’m doing with my life
Working to help people, the environment, and businesses primarily with productivity through energy efficiency. I also designing and making furniture. Trying out new activities, relaxing with the Sunday NYTimes, and seeking a variety of personal adventures. Yoga and meditation refresh me.

I'm attracted to people who have traveled a bit or lived outside of the US and would like to share that experience and perspective. I'd like to get to know some friends from around the world. Perhaps we meet with OKC and then talk via Skype. Let me know if you're interested.
I’m really good at
Recognizing patterns in social interactions, making furniture, communicating with a sense of humor. Working on improving my flirting. Any tips or up for some practice?
The first things people usually notice about me
You'll have to tell me. Perhaps that I look younger? My drive for adventure, new experiences, creativity, makes me rather unique.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Catch-22. The Craftsman, The Prize, The Road Less Traveled. Music: Big Band, Boogie Boogie but it's hard to find, Jazz in general and Vivaldi's 4 Seasons. I read much more than I go to movies - but I do like movies.

I really like raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, cream and sugar. It's been a great winter for snow based activities, though I'm looking forward to summer berries. Washington state cherries are wonderful too.

Other book types include the Sunday New York Times, American Craft, Nordic Reach, Fine Woodworking, and The Economist.

I spend a lot of time browsing home design and decor magazines thinking of ways to get, or make through collaboration, some of the things I see or envision.
The six things I could never do without
Learning something new. A craft project in the planning stage or under construction. Close friends and other people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Don't quite understand why some people are so darn interested in me. I should figure it out, maybe I could charge more for it.
Helping my teen age children navigate life
More ways to have fun and get away now and then
On a typical Friday night I am
Either meeting a group, reading, studying, or out for a drink.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like my privacy but am open to those I'm close to.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–55
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you would like to get to know me, perhaps well, have meaningful discussions, are not looking for the perfect match (I'm trying to avoid unrealistic expectations - how about make new friends to start?) and would like to get out and enjoy life.

If you have a bike and would like to get out for a ride, or see some art, just ask.
