I'm a single dad currently living with my mom as I look into buying a house. I'm very compartmentalized & protective of my family & friends & pretty introverted. So don't expect to be introduced around at the third date or possibly even a few months in, I like to take my time & I'm careful about keeping my life in separate little boxes.
I'm a bit of a good time guy now aiming more towards settling down. I like the outdoors & now that winter is here I might actually have the time to explore it! Recently picked up a book of hot springs, would love an adventuring partner to go check a few out sometime. Bonus points if you own a canoe.
Here's some other stuff about me:
I can't dance but make up for it with enthusiasm.
I love random trivia and learning things.
I cook pretty well.
I eat better than I cook.
That's why I run.
I think the world is more complex than we give it credit for but simpler than we expect it to be.
I smile every day, even when sad and I do it genuinely.
I'm also tall, tend towards the sarcastic and at work try to make small connections with customers over the cash register; maybe I ask where they last used their airline miles, maybe I compliment them for looking better than their driver's license picture. Either way I think it's appreciated. :-)
I do great conversations over email, small conversations over text and my real life conversations run the gamut and depend on how quick whom I'm conversing with is.
My favorite time to listen to NPR is right after the supreme court comes down with a few decisions and I think they were dead wrong in the Hobby Lobby case as you can already see it being interpreted far wider than Alito expressed in his majority opinion.
Well, I think that's enough talking right now. Rock on you shining stars!
I've never read David Sedaris but hope he's 1/2 the humorist that Pat McManus is.
I like most kinds of music but prefer recorded to live. My Pandora station has - among others - Harvey Danger, Flogging Molly, KT Tunstel, Woodkid, Placebo, The Cure, The Smiths and others. I also think Thriller is one of the best made pop albums ever and would listen to it far more often than the entire Nirvana song catalog if forced.
My favorite food is probably BBQ'd ribs, but I also love a great Pad Thai or Pho and I like cooking as well.

In not so serious stuff, was wondering today if Chip and Dale's: Rescue Rangers would have had a different aesthetic theme had Tom Selleck played Indiana Jones. I'm not going to explain that to you, but if you get it, then you should probably message me.
