My self-summary
Ok, so this is what I had up until very recently as a self - summary:

Um, let's see....I'm a normal guy, have a job, have a house, have a son (who's the greatest, btw). Nice guy, laid back, good sense of humor, though I tend to be shy at first. I've been told I'm a bit of a dichotomy...everyone thinks I'm just the nicest guy, then they get to know me; then, I'm told, I'm no boy scout.

Here's the reality....the above is my alter ego. That is the me that most of the world knows.

The truth is a bit, um, less conventional.

I value close, meaningful relationships with people...not the standard "we can date, then get engaged, then have 2.3 kids, then retire, then die". Nothing wrong with any of these things, but the relationship with people is my goal, not the "things".

I know that's not the "norm", but you know what, fuck it, I'm not on this planet to be normal, I'm on this planet to be myself, and enjoy meaningful relationships with interesting, real people.

I have a really wide, deep range of knowledge, true nerd stuff. I know movie stuff, I geek out about particle physics and metaphysics, brane theory, crazy emo non-pc music, all kinds of randomness. I really, truly enjoy the little things. I also want to live to be many hundreds of years old, if only to see what the hell happens next in this world.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, and for the last several years, it's been career stuff. I keep my son on the weekends, and almost all of my friends have either married off, or moved away...so I ended up spending a lot of time working. Trying to change that; all work and no play, right?

This is all still true. My career has taken off of late, things are well on that front, and as noted above, I have met some quality people....
I’m really good at
Quoting movies, spouting off completely useless knowledge, and talking about cars. I can't lie, I love cars, have since I was 13. Oh, and Words With Friends.

Moving heavy things.

Not taking offense to, well, mostly anything

Getting speeding tickets

Shaving my head

Enjoying non-shit beer

Trying to eat well, and not following through with it

Waiting too long to speak my mind

Cussing like a sailor, apparently....Just re-read my profile and I do curse a lot. Oh well, you spend years in the Army and see if you don't pick some up...;)
The first things people usually notice about me
First impression: man, that guy looks like a bouncer

Second impression: hey, he's a lot nicer than I thought he would be.

Third impression: This guy know's too much s*** about too much s***

Maybe that's due to my shaved head? Guess I look the part of the dumb jock....Dunno
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I used to read all the time, but it's been a long time since I've sat down with a book. I do keep up with the news and current events, though. My typical morning is a cup of coffee and an hour or so browsing yahoo news.

Music - Varied interests - NIN, Tool, HTDA, Type O Negative, Nick Drake, Faith No More, Genesis, HEALTH, Daft Punk, Puscifer, System of a Down, old Metallica, lots of '80s stuff, and lots of classical. I'm really not a big fan of country (Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson excluded), and most pop and R&B.

Movies - honestly, it's kind of embarrasing. I can usually quote something from most movies (excluding a lot of chick flicks). I'm very good at six degrees of Kevin Bacon. I'm secretly ecstatic that I have a 15yo son...I can go see any cheesy action or sci-fi movie, and blame it on him.
The six things I could never do without
Six things....

My son
road trips
music
knowledge
introspection
Um....shit, I dunno, air conditioning? - I'm hot natured.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The fact that on a long enough time scale, literally everything that can happen, will happen.

Altered states of perception....how is one perception more valid than another?

Why people have a tendency to reinforce my tendency not to trust people...is it me?

How life has turned out, how it has not gone as I'd expected as a younger man, and how I'd not have it any other way.
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking for others to corrupt / others to corrupt me. Driving. Stressing over work shit. Ok, so there's no typical Friday night. Potentially enjoying a nice beer or a good whiskey somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I had a mini-mullet and a mustache in high school. I also drove a Fiero with t-tops. Hey, it was 1989...what can I say?
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–43
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
You're a conundrum....you present a certain face to the world, but maintain a cool alter-ego behind closed doors. I.E., you have a secret identity and an underground lair. Or, if you're just a decently cool person who wants to chat about whatever. That works, too.

You've read through this, and you haven't uttered the words "eww" or "gross" or "WTF"....if you got through this and said, "hmmm"....step up.
