divorced in the time it takes to match schedules
for a date here."
I'm kind, trustworthy, clean, and have at least one other Boy Scout virtue. I'm also a happy cynic and sing in public. Put simply, I'm pretty happy with who and where I am in life: an intelligent, decent, fairly outgoing guy with a good sense of humor.
I'm not afraid to try new things: I've been an extra in three movies; spent 6 months performing in a melodrama & vaudeville show; been hang gliding over the Hawaiian coast; kayaked in the Gulf of Mexico; danced on the bow of a ship under the Golden Gate Bridge; been to Kenya on photo-safari; won a couple of dance contests, and have taken lindyhop classes from the man who invented the aerial.
However, my normal life is a bit more…normal: Dancing (Blues, Swing, Lindy Hop, Ballroom, Argentine Tango, Fusion), hanging out with friends, movies at the Drafthouse, live music at Antone's, working on pro bono websites, etc. That said, I'm always looking for new things to do. (Aside from feeding the raccoons who come by my apartment and taunting them with a laser pointer — http://www.youtube.com/czehner).
I've started taking photos again after a several year hiatus. I had my camera converted to be able to see infrared (not heat, just barely past visible red). I'm getting some fantastic black-and-whites. I should probably work on taking color photos as well. Hmm...
In terms of a relationship, I would like to find something long-term, but the way to find something long-term is to go out with a number of different people and see how well you "click."
I'm looking for someone who's VERY intelligent and loves to read for fun. A woman who's secure enough to make it on her own, but isn't afraid to ask for help. Someone who loves animals and helping others. Someone who has something to teach me. Someone who can laugh at herself, me, and other people. Someone who is passionate about something. Someone who can balance career and personal life and who appreciates a genuine gentleman.
Maybe I should have written this in bad haiku instead:
A fun, smart woman,
kind, cute, patient, loves to laugh
laugh, but do not point.
