Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hummmm.. OK, launch. An enigma who is comfortable with his
conflicting characteristics; highly intelligent (141 IQ and Mensa
membership) and yet quite naive, a stickler for meeting schedules
and keeping appointments to the minute, yet known to do spontaneous
cross country drives or transcontinental flights without a day's
thought or planning, energetic, restless, tough, with immense
staying power but not at all sports oriented, stable and dependable
but with an impatient nature and a need to move and explore,
sensitive and caring but with a sometimes wickedly, dry, sarcastic
sense of humor, attentive at times and at others, totally unaware
of the obvious, gentle and considerate but capable of being
absoutely oblivious to the trampling of someone's feelings,
flirtatius and friendly but absolutely loyal to a significant
other, always tested well and made good grades but was truly a
terrible student, a primarily monolinguistic, ugly
American who can still seem to fit in anywhere.....
I subscribe to no established religion but do seek a spiritual
I eat a primarily "Paleo" diet at home but will happily break it to
try different foods. It took a lot of soju to choke down the
"fresh" sea slug in South Korea but by golly...
I do like to travel, hike and explore. My children had been in 37
of the U.S. states by the time they hit middle school as well as
tagging Canada, Mexico and the Bahamas.
I have traveled in Brasil a bit touching 10 or so states there from
Manaus down to Florianopolis and inland to Minas Gerais and
Crossed Europe from Romania to Germany with a back pack and then
took to the air to visit Barcelona and Rome and tag out North
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living. Was told today I have 27 % body fat, 'which is normal' (God
I hate being normal) and 30.4% muscle. Guess that means I need to
get back into exploring more of the great outdoors and less in the
culinary exploration arena. lol
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Enduring. Putting people at ease. Fitting in where ever I travel.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I must quiz people on this issue. I would assume my eyes unless of
course they are amongst the unfortunates who use a baiting approach
for initiating conversation. Then it would most probably be my
smart ass sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books; I Am a Barbarian, Edgar Rice Burroughs. Memories of My
Melancholy Whores, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. This could turn into a
really long list. Let's go with lots of etc...s
Movies; Jurassic Park(s), Predator, Paradis Alley, Naked Prey,
Tropa de Elite, Laagon. Should I get out and watch something more
Not a tv watcher. I'm thinking I may ponder getting into this tv
watching thing at some point.
Music; cd collection is large and fairly global but contains little
that could be described as country, heavy metal, or rap (OK there
are a couple of Favela Funk cds but......
Food...total exploratory omnivore. Not big on white carbs or
desserts. If it's got meat, veggies or fruits though I am pretty
much game, at least for a try. Fairly simple paleo is my preference
at home when not trying something new.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
See Maslow's hierarchy of needs. So with air and water, if pushed
to it, I can make do for some period of time while establishing
methods of acquiring the other physical necessities but love......
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Did you see "Lion in Winter"? One of my favorite movie lines ever,
" ...do you ever think?" "Sire, gentlemen have better things to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

curious about, just ask. I am pretty open.
