My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Ride bikes, drink beer, get awesome"

I'm John. Moved to Portland in 2013 and had a looong road to establishing myself and getting beyond just surviving. I don't know anyone here except co-workers, an ex, and bartenders. Very open to meeting people on a friend basis for that reason.

I'm a bit of an erudite and philosoph. I love reading and learning but haven't found the practical application to drag me out of my state of scholasticism.

At heart I'm an artist, musician, and philosopher. My guitar, sketch pad, and textbooks are my worry stones. Any real problems that don't disappear after exercise are either rationalized and incorporated into the continuity of my worldview or released into music and art. I rarely share any of my art for this reason; it's kind of like having the contents of your heart turned out or your neuroticisms and idiosyncrasies displayed.

I love the freedom of nature and will always love biking, hiking, and backpacking. The outdoors are an integral part of who I am; whether it's a walk downtown or a week in the woods it puts me at peace. Being an adult and working have put a damper on the amount of time I've gotten to spend really getting out into the woods lately. Something I'll have to work on.

I love meaningful conversations and have a hard time with trivial minutia. Talking about my day is the least interesting thing I could share with you; if my day was that good or bad, I'll already be talking about it and will probably connect back to some ethical or philosophical reasoning for it being so good or bad. I want to live in the space that transcends life on autopilot and the way I do that is choosing life and examining it.

I feel it's oddly important to note I am, and will be for the foreseeable future, a bike commuter/lover/nerd. I've been amazed to learn my choice of transportation is such a large issue. I don't need to share every ride I go on or really need a cyclist as a partner or friend necessarily. In fact, the solitude of many of my rides is very important to me. However, riding to the grocery store rather than driving, bar hopping, going on an adventure, or joining me in other ways on incorporating the bike into normal life makes me feel understood and accepted. Again, not necessary, just gives me warm fuzzies.

On the same token and being inexorably related to my choice of cycling everywhere, I'm a total fitness junky intermittently and very active in between relapses to my exercise addiction. I would really like someone who is fitness minded as well or at the minimum, in shape.

Lastly I am a solitary creature who has found himself and sculpted himself through solitude. I'm happy and content with who I am and I'm here just to keep all ways of finding someone open but it's not necessary for me to find someone. I'm nowhere near perfect, but I love who I am as a constant work in progress.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working. Working. Working. Drinking beer. Trying to figure our where one comes up with tuition to finish school when it gets more expensive every year and you start feeling like the person who took a gamble on skipping college in Life even though you took the college path.

Day to day I'm riding my bike and thinking, working until I drop, and drinking the many libations available in Portland.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Arguing, writing, art, anything athletic or outdoorsy, and anything else I put my mind to. ( which I put my mind.)
The first things people usually notice about me

You tell me

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Thus Spoke Zarathustra, 1984, Atlas Shrugged (As a novel not the Rand worshipping tea party philosophy way), the God Delusion, really anything nonfiction, philosophy, psychology or biology related, and as nerdy as it is, textbooks.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Some form of shelter
Animal companionship
Challenges and obstacles
Constant input of new information
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What direction my life will go and how to balance my penchant for isolation and occasional need of company.

You know how POWs talk about building a house nail by nail? I do the same, my head is full of houses no one but me would live in or love and the deciding factor for which dream house will rise will be the direction my life leads.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. If I'm not working I've probably spent the day on my bike reaching every corner of my adoptive city and drinking a beer or eating the food at each stop I make. By night I find that bar or restaurant with the perfect atmosphere for my mood and do a crossword while having those last couple drinks before heading home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing about me is private. I tend to live in the open.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you have a bike and love to ride it. If "picky" doesn't describe you but you know the things you like and those you don't have a taste for . If you're in good shape as a matter of lifestyle and have any interest in anything I've said about myself. Or if you have an idea for a great adventure and would like a Clyde to your Bonnie or a Deadpool to your Cable (more likely a Cable to your Deadpool) . And please, please, PLEASE try harder than "hi."
