My self-summary
I'm a cynic, a realist, a humanist and a wanderer; part big city, part rivers and forests. My life is a busy mix of hobbies, work, friends, and spending lots of time with my daughter. The only thing missing is someone awesome who also has her own awesome life, goals, and clear priorities, and who wants to share in this crazy stumbling adventure we call life.

I'm looking for a partner who is open minded, independent, quick witted and tough-skinned. I don't expect you to be perfect - we all have our weaknesses - but I do expect you to be honest with yourself and the rest of the world about who you are, where you've been, what you want, and what you feel. I'm looking for an intellectual partner who's willing to stand up for her ideas, challenge mine, and let the best ones win without hurt feelings. Someone who knows the difference between an argument and a fight, who appreciates banter, and who doesn't take things too seriously.

I hope, if you're still reading by this point, that you're starting to get an idea of who I am. I've had a very unique and interesting life. I suspect you have, too. I've traveled, studied and worked in four continents; I've nearly died at least twice; I've watched people being born and I've watched them die; I feel like I've been fortunate to have lived many lives in this lifetime; and I've been called an "old soul" more than once. I've loved and lost, and I'm not looking for my "perfect" mate. I am looking for a partner in crime who's willing to join me in the adventure of life.

You should also know that I'm a very sexual person. This does not mean that I want a one night stand (though at times the idea is appealing). For the most part, I don't think sex really makes sense until two people get to know each other. Sometimes that takes longer than others, and chemistry is notoriously unpredictable. What is important about this, and why I bring it up, is that I think sexuality - and sensuality - are essential parts of a healthy relationship. This means everything from physical contact, hugs, hand holding and unsolicited caressing to deep, passionate intimacy. These are not the hallmarks of courtship, destined to fade with familiarity and time; they are the sign posts of lasting shared passion that I have seen in the lives of the happiest, most committed old couples I have met. In short, if you don't like sex and the pleasure of physical interaction, this won't work.

I think I've said enough to scare away most of you, so if you're still reading, send me a message! I don't bite without permission.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning every day and helping those around me learn in their own way.
I’m really good at
Figuring out how things work, sometimes fixing them. Logical thinking, basically. I believe there is an answer to every question, you just have to ask the right questions.
I'm also getting pretty good at admitting when I'm wrong. It's really disarming for some people, and it makes life so much less conflicted.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and my weird sense of humor (puns. Oh god, the puns. I can't help myself).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: the Unbearable Lightness of Being, Life of Pi, The Empathic Civilization, How to Win Every Argument (logic, not assholeish), trying to find my copy of Outliers, House of Leaves, the Upside of Down (I'll finish it if I can find it).

movies: LOTR, fight club, shaft, inception, Batman begins, probably more, but these are the ones that come to mind right now.

shows: Sons of Anarchy, Star Trek: TNG, Walking Dead, the West Wing, Breaking Bad, I don't know, I don't have much time for tv these days.

music: Dave Matthews Band, Lumineers, the Head and the Heart, Ben Howard, White Stripes, Bon Iver, the Black Keys, Rage Against the Machine, Tool, Led Zeppelin, Kings of Leon, Queens of the Stone Age, Audioslave, Dan Mangan, Damien Rice, Ray LaMontagne, and anything with strong vocal harmonies (I'm a complete sucker for male/female singer-songwriter harmonies and raspy vocals).

food: Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, street food, BBQ, and anything on a stick.
The six things I could never do without
Sustenance (Air/water/food)
Stimulation (mental/physical/emotional)
Silence (solitude)
...and, apparently, the letter S
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... what the hell to put in this box. Really, I'm mostly focused on what I need to do next, and how to fit it all together.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with my brilliant little daughter, with a couple of friends around a campfire, or enjoying the quiet at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know, you'll have to ask. I'm an open book, but I'm not keen on blurting out my private life out of context.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–38
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
You're not afraid to fail
You don't mind being #2 in my life (my daughter comes first. If you're awesome you could be a close second)
You like camping, hiking, canoeing, cycling or climbing (bonus points if you have your own gear and enjoy being outdoors and dirty for a few days at a time)
You enjoy banter and debate
You don't take yourself too seriously
You don't care that I don't watch sports. Like, ever. I don't hate them, I just don't have the time to keep up with teams and stats.
Staring up into space still fills you with awe and wonder
You know that we will all suffer, deteriorate and die, and that's a damn good reason to enjoy life while we can
