I'm Bill. I'm always on the lookout for more friends but I'm primarily here because I'm looking for a serious, long-term, relationship with a liberal, kind-hearted, world-minded, green-minded woman who's comfortable with herself.
I like cooking but only when I have an audience; of course, loving to cook and loving the results of that cooking have given me a shape that causes some to call me cuddly, teddy bear, and the like (I'm no jock and no bird-man). Once people get used to my sense of humor, they have no problem admitting that I remind them, in appearance, of Uncle Fester.
I'm Presbyterian. I see no conflict in science and religion; Genesis presents two creation stories as analogies to explain a long slow process akin to the current theory of the Big Bang and Evolution (for who but God could have created such a complex, beautiful, and chaos-from-order-from-chaos set of rules that physicists are only beginning to understand?). I'm a voracious reader ... but mostly of sci-fi/fantasy and Tom Clancy-type stuff. And a 'Net junkie. I'm not such a movie goer, but I do go to some...
I've been known to study Esperanto, Spanish Japanese, German (long ago and no longer), and American Sign Language.
I love my dog, Isis. I've decided to get a Jeep now that the 4-door Wrangler has come out so I can have a good all-around utility vehicle; the dogs will come play on the trail with me. I also want a Jeep so I can go hunting for ... photographic subjects.
I've become addicted to bicycling. I've found that I sleep very poorly if I don't go biking several times per week. So, to give me enough time in the saddle, I ride my bike to work at least twice per week, often more frequently.
My cat's name is Ifriti and she's an absolute pest, lol.
I have a strange sense of humor. I'm more likely to get entertainment from books or the 'Net than from TVs or movies. I'm the kind of person that has a few close friends rather than many well-known acquaintances. I'm an avid reader, mostly of books and random information from Wikipedia (and other sources of information on the internet).
I'm not shy when it comes to friends (but I can be when it comes to initially approaching a woman). I take relationships seriously; I don't bother with ones that don't seem like they'll work and focus singly on ones that seem to have potential.

Whoa! Did I really write that much?
OK, so, to get to know me a little better (better than this over-analyzed canned mess), visit my blog at dygituljunky.livejournal.com...
I don't really trust internet communications since I can't read body language and tone of voice from text, although I do see it as a viable medium for "Howdy." Of course, I'm flexible, too, and don't mind flexing towards a longer Internet introduction, at first. I prefer to date casually, first, and get to know someone in safe public places. If I like you, I then prefer to start doing things with you plus my/your friends. I'm a one-at-a-time kind of guy; even casually dating more than one woman at a time stresses me out so I doubt I'll try that again.
I am liberal, friendly, and goofy
