My self-summary
14

I'm not a flashy guy, my daily attire usually consists of a pocket-t and jeans. Just keeping it simple. If I have a meeting or something more formal to attend to, I clean up well. I'm more interested with what's in the package than what it looks like. So, I figure my appearance will weed out the women who are more interested in the wrapping, than the contents. If you take the time to see whats inside, you may be pleasantly surprised.

If you do get me into a conversation I tend to become more engaged with big ideas, rather than small talk. I get distracted easily, so topics with more layers of thought and discussion are more likely to keep me engaged. I try really hard to maintain small talk when it comes up, but I don't think I do it very well.

I take a little more time before considering someone a friend. But those that have become that close to me can tell you that I am completely loyal after that point. I personally don't find the enjoyment of being surrounded by lots of people that I barely know. If you would rather hangout with 50 people you only kind of know, than 5 you know well, we will not click.

14.1.20. I should thank OkC for making it more obvious that it already was that I am not the usual character around these parts and that I would have better luck finding a match in Austin. Yes, I am a creative far-left atheist which is far from the usual corporate far-right god-fearing people that appear to dominate the Houston area. That being said, I have attempted to make many connections here with some positive results, but nothing has worked out yet. I appreciate those that have and will reply with honesty, even only to say you're not interested. After trying to spark the positive connections (and running low on high percentage matches) OkC has begun to lose its luster. I may continue attempting to find luck here, but would like to take this opportunity to encourage those of you that may be interested to just say hello.
What I’m doing with my life
I began teaching art at one of the local community colleges a couple of years ago. At this point I am with two different colleges. Still working on getting up the next step in academia.

I previously had owned/operated a courier company that serviced international airlines. It about ran me into the ground. Luckily, I found a job doing what I love (see above) so I could move on from it.

I am a firm believer of slow and steady winning the race. I've stayed focused to get where I am, though I am still not done. I may not have come to this point as soon as I would have liked, but I didn't let distractions (some quite major) get me off track. I find great importance in patience and perseverance.

"Make Haste Slowly"
I’m really good at
Mediating conflict. From high school on, I have been a go to guy for dealing with conflict. I have held several official positions as a liaison.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to be the quiet one in the group. I like to sit back and people watch when in or around large groups. In small groups of people I have come to know, I begin to talk more.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Most of my reading ends up being the news. Books I do read tend to come from people like Howard Zinn, Ralph Nader, Vonnegut, Hawking, and Dawkins. I have been relying more on audiobooks recently. According to my library there, I've been going through a lot of philosophy and sociology.

Movies I watch are usually from the comedy or documentary genres. I probably watch more series based media. The Office, Bones, House, Family Guy, 30 Rock...

As far as Sci-fi is concerned, Star Trek > Star Wars.

Music: Beastie Boys, Tool, Nightmares on Wax, DJ Krush, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sneaker Pimps, Thievery Corporation, Cypress Hill, Massive Attack, Geto Boys, Röyksopp, Télépopmusik, God Lives Underwater, Jane's Addiction, Organic Grooves, Beenie Man, Stone Temple Pilots, Cake, Groove Armada, Morcheeba, Zero 7, Pretty Lights

Games should be a category here. I am by no means a gamer, but I do like to play video games (a few hours a week). It should be obvious by now that games hold as much place in contemporary media as the others. That being said... FIFA, Tiger Woods, SSX, GTA, Gran Turismo, God of War.

Food is good too. I don't get enough Mediterranean, Indian, or Vietnamese.
The six things I could never do without
Car
Camera
Computer
Internet
Materials (for making things)
Coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Current Events, Spatial Interaction (artistically speaking), and lately I've been more concerned with the possibility of an idiocracy (as in the movie). I see so many interesting and smart women on here that have stated they don't want kids. As an educated person I've started thinking it is partially my responsibility to raise at least some children that will help balance that out, eventually.
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to find myself out in a semi-crowded bar with a beer and people to watch. My entourage is usually no larger than four people, and I have no problem heading out by myself to see whats going on in town. Though not always on Friday, a good weekend includes an art opening.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'll probably find out the first time we meet. I don't have anything to hide, but I can't just give it away here.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 27–40
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends
You should message me if
...you've seen me visit your profile a time or two and are interested in me. I'm not the guy who is going to send a blanket email. I will only contact a few women when I am available. I don't like to juggle. If something starts to develop with a woman, I prefer to give her what attention I have available.

You don't mind skipping the small talk.

Going from point A to point B in a straight line is not your preferred path.
