My self-summary
Employed, educated, non-smoking, never married, intelligent, religiously irreverent, tall rascal with a sense of humor seeks frisky fox for lasting adventures. Love to have fun in whatever form it takes. Never spent any time in jail or rehab. I can cook, clean, do my own laundry and manage household finances. Are you my counterpart? I tell jokes at parties that haven't livened up yet. They aren't always very appropriate. I enjoy good tequila. I enjoy playing board games and card games. I think there's a fine line between being flirty and annoying that seems to be related to how ridiculously good looking you happen to be.

Have traveled a little. Looking forward to doing more of it with the right person. Ireland, Iceland, Great Britain, Greece, within the USA and South America are all on my wish list.

At a job interview several years ago (a 12 person group interview) everyone at the table was supposed to vote on who would be the group leader after only having met for 5 minutes. I got all 11 votes. I always thought that was weird. I've been the jury foreman every time I had to be on a jury as well. In summary: I guess people consider me a leader.

Lately been growing my hair out, for a little more than 2 years. I'm not sure how long I'll keep it this way, comments are mostly positive.
What I’m doing with my life
I love my job without being married to it. I work in a science field for the federal government. My retirement dream is to build a magnificent log cabin with gorgeous views of mountains and the water. In the meantime, I'm paying off my house.
I’m really good at
Quoting lines from movies I've seen too many times.
Board games and card games, reaching stuff on the top shelf, carrying on intelligent conversation, editing paperwork, remembering obscure science facts, proving that it was Oswald and he was working alone, laughing at people who claim they've been abducted by aliens or any other 'woo' embraced by the uninformed. Numerology, images of Mary on grilled cheese sandwiches, psychic powers, dolphins are 'magic', hauntings, mediums, magnet therapy, copper healing... you get the idea. If you strongly believe that a lot of those are real, we are not going to get along.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Does anyone really use this section to make any dating decisions? The only thing that would probably be a deal breaker is if you can't read at all and your absolute favorite music is "Cop Killer Gangster" Rap.

Godfather, Inception, Pulp Fiction, Babel, American Beauty, Lawrence of Arabia, Juno, Sideways, Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Gattaca are favorites. I own hundreds of movies. I can always use someone to watch them with me.

Rock and Roll, from the 60's to some modern hits. Beatles, Johnny Cash, Zeppelin, AC/DC, Pearl Jam, White Stripes are some artists I enjoy.

I can find something I'll enjoy at most any restaurant but German, Italian and classic American comfort foods are my favorites.

I've read thousands of books in my life. Classics, Non-Fiction, Fantasy Fiction.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, Sleep, Music, Communication, Books and my Oven.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Coffee, my cat, friends and family. Evolution, news, state and federal economics. How to make the yard around my house easier to care for. Log cabins. Also, why do so many of my high % matches enjoy world traveling and being vegans? Why are almost all of my best matches from New York City, Washington DC or Seattle?

I feel out of place at weddings. I dread the endless string of 'SOOOOO when are YOU going to get married?' comments. Despite that, I've been to 20 or more of them. I've given away brides, been an usher, a groomsman and a best man.

Note: Politically I'm a moderate regardless of the OKC opinion that I'm a Republican. The only thing "Republican" about my politics is the desire for a financially efficient government. I'd vote for fiscal responsibility with social liberties.
I walk to work so my car sees more hours a year than miles.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, perhaps playing board or card games, perhaps enjoying a frosty adult beverage at a local brewery. During good weather I try to get out as many weekends as possible.
Weekend activities in recent years have included fun runs, river float trips, camping, road trips and popular events like festivals, SantaCon and Bite of Seattle.

I messaged you, even if it's to say why you aren't interested.
