My self-summary
I'm not an OKC A-lister, a "like" won't show me who you are, let me know you visited!

I am particularly happy outdoors, whether it's a hike on the Dipsea trail or from the Mission to the Marina. I have lived abroad, enjoy weekend getaways, and have checklists for both art museums and ballparks. I appreciate good food and wine, lively conversation, and the fact that all the world’s a stage and we are merely players.

Am hoping to meet someone who is as optimistic, adventurous, and enjoys life as much as I do...with a great sense of humor. I take humor VERY seriously.

Chivalry is not dead, manners are second nature to me. I also think one shouldn't point out that one opens doors, pulls out chairs, etc., but so many profiles mention "what happened to manners?" that I feel obliged.
What I’m doing with my life
Transforming a mid-century home into a relaxing eco retreat and fantasizing about being Airbnb’s director of customer service.

Professionally, helping college students get that degree with as little debt as possible.

Very rewarding, and hopefully helping them see the big, long-term economic picture.
I’m really good at
-Writing
-Not sweating the small stuff
-Traveling
-Seeing things from various viewpoints
-Grilling
-Humor
-Sex and driving, because all guys think they're good at these
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor and putting people at ease.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Tolstoy once attempted to write a day in the life of a farmer. He wrote hundreds of pages before the farmer even had breakfast. It was impossible to cover every moment of the day. So is this section, from Shakespeare to current writers, far too many to list (English major).

Recent books include Keith Richards, Steve Jobs and Babe Ruth biographies, "Imagine: How Creativity Works" and "1,000 Places to See Before You Die."

Movies, again, all over the place though I appreciate a good story more than lots of explosions.

Recently found a nice web gem, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld.

I enjoy pretty much all types of music. Food, no limits.
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is the perfect day a long hike, beer and oysters, dancing in the living room, a hot tub, and then????
On a typical Friday night I am
There's no typical, relaxing at home or out on the town, it's about what one wants to do and who to enjoy it with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Great legs and a smile make me weak in the knees...
You should message me if
You like to laugh, get outdoors, enjoy road-trips, travel the world, and are as comfortable lounging in the sun as wandering under city lights. Ideally, we feed off of each other's enthusiasm, enjoy that certain "spark," and take the good and bad of any adventure with a smile.

There's an improv exercise wherein one member starts the scene and hands it off to another. That other picks up the line and starts with "yes, and..." Too often in life we say "yes, but..."

I'm looking for someone for whom "yes, and..." is better than "yes, but..."

If I visit and star you, it's not that I can't send you a nice message, nor expect you to message me first. It's about giving you a chance to check my profile. I like to think of myself as a decent wordsmith, there will be entertaining messages! All in CAPS!
