Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
While I appreciate that this part is important, it always feels so
awkward to sum oneself up in a few concise sentences. I can say
that I am pretty laid back in general and like to meet new people.
I have been accused of bringing home strays amongst my friends-
which is a good thing as it has in general added new personalities
into the mix that livens it up for everyone. I rarely meet someone
I don't like and learn from almost everyone. I think that one can
never learn too much and that you get the most out of life by
having experiences rather than from owning stuff. I have spent a
good deal of my younger years traveling and appreciate the
differences that cultural influences bring to any situation.
I'm happily married to the sweetest girl ever, who happens to also
agree with me that loving more than one person is natural. We'd
love to find someone that is interested in a relationship with us
I love costumes and any event that inspires a person to be creative
to express their individuality. The Ren Faire is a great place to
take children to let them see that even when you grow up you can
let your imagination run free. We dress up frequently and go to
every event we can that requires costumes. Eccentric Day, Theatre
Bizarre and Talk Like a Pirate Day should be national
I am witty, quirky, and sarcastic
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The past year has been very trying for a variety of reasons. We
made it through and I think we have come out stronger and better
for the experiences. That being said, I advise you never to burn
down your stuff. It is more hassle than you can imagine.
We are both in the veterinary business and spend a lot of time
working on our clinics. We provide some unique services and both
really enjoy the fact that when an animal comes to see us it is
because we are the solution to their problem. It is intensely
gratifying to help an animal and their owner in a time of need.
Though we work hard, we also find time to play hard and have a
large circle of friends that we see as often as we are able. We
also have many friends around the world that we don't get to see
often, but when we do it is as if no time has passed. That, to me,
is the measure of a true friendship.
My most recent adventures have been to get involved with all things
fermentation. I have been a brewer for 17 years but have recently
been excited to make naturally fermented foods - think sauerkraut,
but also any and all other vegetables. The process is fascinating
and it is amazing to take something inedible and render it into
something extremely nutritious, or to enhance the nutrients of an
already healthy food. Just now starting up three vinegar barrels so
we can have unpasteurized, healthy vinegar to use in the above
pickling, as well as getting into artisanal spirits. Next on the
list is cheese making. Trying to become a little more connected
with local foods and have been inspired to try the above after
joining a CSA (community supported agriculture, if you are unaware
of the acronym).
We have an open relationship and have no drama with it. If that
offends you then we will probably not get along. We aren't actively
looking for someone but are always open to the possibility of
meeting someone that fits our life. We hope that we can fit someone
else's life as well. We have a great deal of fun when we include
others in our life- as friends or more!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing. I don't take life too serious and look for others that
are the same. That being said, it is important to be serious when
necessary and get those things done that one has to. But that is
only so one can get back to having fun with the people you care
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
. . . my long hair. I grew it out in Africa and won't ever go
through the mid length hair stage again so it stays until I'm ready
for short hair. Which could be a while if my wife has anything to
say about it. . .
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Geek Love was a recent great, as was The Mystic Art of Erasing All
Signs of Death. The Ethical Slut is on the list of need to read. I
don't have real favorites as it is mood dependent.
Princess Bride would have to qualify as favorite movie if number of
times viewing counts as some sort of voting, though Fear and
Loathing would tie or come in second.
I couldn't limit myself to a favorite food as there is almost
nothing I don't like.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Beer, coffee, love, animals, Tanzania and people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The way the world has changed. I remember when people seemed to
care about one another and not the pursuit of stuff. I used to live
in Tanzania and the thing that attracted me to the place was the
fact that people were happy despite having little of what most
would call "important". The swahili greeting of Habari is always
answered, "Mzuri"- fine. If you ever were told, "Siyo mbaya"- not
bad, you would panic as that often meant that the house was lost to
a fire, the children were dead, all the cows were stolen and you
had malaria. Little problems like being late for a movie never
ruined anyone's day in Tanzania. Health, family and friends were
recognized as the important things to pay attention to and to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Curled up with a book or movie or out to the bar for cocktails and
fun with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cover up my shy personality by being outgoing and flamboyent.
Insecurities exist in all of us, some just hide it better.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You would like to teach me something new about the world. We are
also looking for someone to share more than just a friendship with
and have heard that OKC might be a good place to find those that
feel the same (we're poly). We'd like to know from others what
their experiences are and hopefully meet cool people along the way.
