Primarily, I'm not as perfect as you'd like me to be, but I give it
my best try. And when I fail, I always say I'm sorry and bring
flowers to make up for it.
My favorite activities are eating too much and drinking too much
and then getting up too early to go to the gym to make up for it.
Or maybe for a run to the beach. I'd really like to take up biking,
but I have to acquire one first. Also, I'd rather have a tooth
filled than rollerblade. I have a high center of gravity and the
first time I tried it I almost lost an arm. I also love movies and
live music and just about any athletic activity. Oh yes, and any
form of lounging is good.
I'm also a mostly harmless nerd who is relatively well read and can
have highly intellectual conversations when required, though I
generally don't prefer to. I love people, but I'm not particularly
outgoing, and even sometimes a little shy.
Basically, I'd like to meet someone who can make me laugh or at
least laugh at me and is as curious as I am to explore the world
with. Maybe that person is you, and maybe not, but either way it
never hurts to meet someone new. Well, hardly ever.

What I’m doing with my life
IT Director for a non-profit hospice. No, it isn't even a little
bit depressing, though we do cry often. For some reason this is
what I'm good at, so I'm trying to do as much good with it as I
I’m really good at
Being the strangest guy in the room. Telling jokes that aren't
funny until five minutes later. Making references to literary works
that I have probably never read.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm taller than them. That my head is sometimes so shiny that
I should be positioned near the coast to warn ships of dangerous
rocks? And when they get closer, that I have unnaturally long
eyelashes (so much so that it is uncomfortable for me to wear
The six things I could never do without

4. I'll get back to you on the rest - too busy eating.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I assume this means embarassing things? How much time do you have?
I'm not a private person, and do lots of embarassing things. Let's
start with this - I still cover my eyes during the scary parts of
movies. And while we're on the subject of movies, I've never
learned how to eat popcorn. It goes everywhere and I find it for
days. If you find yourself at a movie with me, you'd be well
advised to zip shut your purse. Earplugs may not be a bad idea
either. (For the popcorn - I don't talk during movies).
You should message me if
Your messages are delicious.
You are (going) to be a doctor of something other than medicine.
Makes me melt. All other education levels welcome too, of course
(and medical folks). Some of the smarter people I've ever known
never graduated HS.
You just want to have a beer or something. Very interested in
meeting someone, but not so much in this venue.
