My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I work out for my health and some tone, I'm ~6-6 barefoot, 225 lbs. From a pragmatically analytical family, we were above-average athletes, and all of us think we're funny too.

I received my grad degree from the University of Oklahoma (MBA) and my undergrad degree from Oklahoma State (geoscience). Also attended Kansas University where I played a little basketball, conducted a lot of social research, and had too much fun - transferred to go cold turkey and rebalance.

Have had a spectrum of experiences through my initial family, college, wide-ranging business activities (with some international), sabbaticals in government, marriage, parenthood, divorce, my kids' many endeavors, etc. Have been in a fair number of countries in my life since 1963 and lived in Northern New Mexico for 10 years. An observation: there are a lot of nice people wherever you go and there is always a small percentage of really irritating people. Have begun to travel again. I could live almost anywhere and do my work so I am considering a move.

I smile and laugh easily and can quip with anyone (so far) but also enjoy having reasoned discussions on a wide range of topics. Generally listen more than I talk but some will confirm that I can definitely take over a conversation. I'm comfortable in most settings (urban, rural, mountains, beaches) and with most cultures, religions, economic or social strata and all skin colors. Also comfortable in anything from a tux to a good clean plain white t-shirt.

I've found something positive in almost every place I've ever been and assume that will be true in the future. I'll try almost anything at least once and it usually will be with people I enjoy being around.

I'm usually a gentleman (damn parents), usually flexible and adaptive, open minded, a learner, an encourager and a toucher. And I don't need much attention but I'm happy to give it.

If you asked my male and female friends what I'm like you'd get various responses after they humor themselves. If prompted (when I'm not around) most or all would probably say that I'm more principled than many, have some depth and breadth, almost always friendly, respectful to almost everyone (unless they've earned a different approach), a friend they trust with personal or confidential information, and/or, that I am intensely (passionately?) serious about what is important to me -- sometimes stubbornly.

Honesty has always been one of my quirks and flaws -- I've never been good at exaggerating, pretending and/or using people (a constraint in business and life) but things have worked out well over time. Due to this unchangeable quirk/flaw in me, my teammate/partner needs to have it also.

My female teammate/partner would have the same traits that I've consciously tried to insert into the minds of my daughters and sons (two each) from an early age: honest, friendly, laugh easily (even at themselves), have goals and objectives and work to achieve them, have inner confidence (vs. outer), are self-sufficient, unselfish, and definitely not dramatic or narcissistic (all of us need to have some control over our emotions; none of us are as important as we might want to believe). Other good qualities for my teammate/partner: friendly eyes, a sincere smile, thankful for the positives in her life, and a figure that is actually slender or toned due to effort and/or genetic luck. Overall: a warm naturalness, with some substance.

Different is more interesting to me than average so I have dated a little but not a lot in the last 8+ years. I answered a lot of questions with supplemental comments to give some insight into me -- I don't remember putting any emphasis on what I expect from others.

I'm not looking for arm candy so what I think of you is all that matters. And I'm not seeking conquests for my ego because I was almost 30 when I married, I'm more mature now, have daughters, and I am comfortable (but not satisfied) with who I am.

I assume you've thought about your listed preferences so if I do not fit your parameters (age, distance from you, etc.) I probably will not contact you. And if you contact me and I do not respond quickly it's because I'm involved in a business endeavor that I have invested a lot of time and money into and I want to get an adequate return.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I try to stay mentally engaged. I spend most of my work time on oil and natgas but also deal with some real estate. I occasionally do some volunteer work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Smiling and laughing. Listening. Interacting with diverse people and making people feel comfortable. Analytics (information and data). Discussing a wide range of topics -- I will usually give reasoned opinions or will ask questions to learn more.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably height. Maybe smile or laugh if I'm not standing up -- I don't know, I haven't asked anyone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I enjoy learning and understanding. Mostly read non-fiction books, periodicals, and online resources including business, science, history, geopolitics, psychology/sociology, etc. When I watch tv, which is not often, it is usually comedy, science, history, etc. I have not seen many movies in the recent past. I will eat almost anything except red beets, boiled spinach and a few other things (but I would if I was starving).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order: cerebral food, the people and resources that supply the cerebral food, laughter, physical touch, appreciation and thankfulness, my kids (proud to be related to them).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A lot of things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no consistent pattern but I don't go on a lot of dates -- different is more interesting to me than average, and is harder to find.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would have to think about this but I'm not going to take the time just to answer this question. I'm usually an open book on almost everything.
