My self-summary
So I haven't been on here for a while partly because I took a break from dating last year and also because I'm not really that sold on the whole online dating thing.

Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of plugging a checklist into the computer and Ms. Perfect popping out on the screen but it really doesn't work that way. I've found alot of people have VERY high expectations even before we've gotten to know each other. I think the time up front should really be about getting to know each other and really finding out if we're right for each other without all the pressure and go from there.

So I'm not above taking time to get to know each other before things get physical and just spending time and exploring where we go. And if it turns out we're just meant to be friends so be it.

So bottom line is, I'm more interested in interacting with someone in a more personal setting than text and email. That means talking, meeting for coffee or a bite, perhaps a date, etc.. That way we get to know each other on a real level and not based on fantasies.

Thanks for checking me out.

I'm laid back personality with bouts of intensity. My favorite things are live music, good food, and traveling. I'm very independent but enjoy good company with the right people. I've started working out again after an EXTREMELY long layoff (about a year) and I'm finally getting that old drive back.
What I’m doing with my life
A former freelancer now working fulltime as a software developer and working ideas for new websites that I own.
I’m really good at
Computers (of course), weight-training... I'm a decent cook... alot of people like my chicken. I also make killer hot sauces. My guitar skills are debatable.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile or my build.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Nowadays, I watch alot of YouTube rather than television. Most of the things I watch nowadays deals with a mix of history, spirituality, gardening, cooking, woodworking, DIY, or guitar playing. Most of my entertainment now is information based rather than leisure.

Love most kinds of foods and love to try new ones. Favorites? Japanese, Ethiopian, Latin...

Love live music.... and music in general I have a wide variety of music tastes ranging from rock, soul, heavy metal & rap.

I listen to alot of alternative and independent news from a various number of sources.

Most books I read are non-fiction biographies, current events, and whatever I feel like learning at the moment. Loved Miles (Davis), Confession of a Street Addict, Freakonomics, a bunch of Thomas Sowell books, Live Rich and Die Broke by Stephen Pollan, and Liberty Defined by Ron Paul.

I'm currently reading the Bible from cover to cover and letting God take me where he leads me.

Every once in a while I pop in a fiction book but my favorites are: Brave New World, 1984, ZigZag by Noel Hynd, Whipping Boy by John Byrne....
The six things I could never do without
My family (especially my beautiful little nieces), Music, Working Out, Chocolate, Delicious Food, Traveling
I spend a lot of time thinking about
strengthening my relationship with God, retiring on an island, living in a hut, and fishing for food...
On a typical Friday night I am
nowadays, I'm home relaxing on Friday night. I used to be the guy that power-napped when he got home then went flying out the door at 10pm. Now I just hang unless I hear there's a good band playing. Saturdays different story...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing at the moment.
