My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Love many, trust few, and always paddle your own canoe."

I'm paddling my own canoe, and have been for quite some time. However, love and trust go hand-in-hand. Without trust, love will wither and die. I can tell you this from experience.

I've reached the point in my life where I'd like to take a relationship as far as I can go, rather than stay in the ambivalent stage as I did when I was younger.

I've had many experiences in my life so far, both good and bad. Drama, if you will. It's not that we have drama in our lives. We all do, or have, without exception. It's how we deal with it, and whether we allow it to affect our current and future relationships. If you hold on to the past with one hand and the future with the other, you'll be ripped apart.

I view this system with cautious scepticism. I have had an unpleasant experience on a competing site, purportedly the largest dating website on the planet, in which I discovered that a number of the subscribers were bogus. That being said, I'm looking for someone who's real. Both philosophically and literally.

I believe honesty is the best policy. Honesty builds trust, and trust is absolutely essential in a romantic relationship. Without trust, love will wither and die.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After a seven-year adventure in Georgia (sort of like the "three-hour cruise" which lasted a bit longer), I moved back to Houston in August 2010. Although I was born in Kansas, I've lived in Houston most of my life and consider it home. There's no place like home.

Over the course of the past two years, I've changed my residence and I've changed my employer. I no longer live in Midtown and I now work for "The Man."

My plan is to purchase land upon which to build a house from the ground up. This was actually the plan when I lived in Warner Robins, Georgia, and I even progressed to the point of buying the lot, finding a builder, and preparing the lot for construction. But construction never began, and through a series of issues with the building contractor, I eventually sold the improved lot (at a profit). It was a learning experience.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
"Take what you need, and leave the rest. " That's been my philosophy. I've done many things and had many adventures in my life so far. Although some of these were misadventures, I've found they were learning experiences.

Some wise person once said that experience is the unique ability to recognize a mistake when we make it again. Although I've not made any life-changing transgressions that resulted in a criminal record, I'm not perfect and have never claimed to be, but I've tried to learn from the curve balls and fouls that Life has pitched, and am a better man because of it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My favorite television and movie eras are the 1960s (Star Trek, Lost in Space, Batman, Gilligan's Island, In Like Flint, Our Man Flint, James Bond, Twilight Zone, and so on), the 1970s (Brady Bunch, Partridge Family, Logans Run, Battlestar Galactica), and the 1980s (Bradys redux, Family Ties, Otherworld).

That's not to say that I'm stuck in the past and don't enjoy recent shows. From the 1990s, I was addicted to Melrose Place and Newsradio. I think Phil Hartman is a comic genius, a product of Saturday Night Live. Second City Television is another comedy talent trove, so much better than MAD TV (in my humble opinion).

Just recently, I discovered Big Bang Theory.Actually, I discovered it quite by accident, and were it not for one specific character that caught my eye (and ear), I would have passed it by. That character was Bernadette Rostenkowski, played by Melissa Rouch. Her appearance, her demeanor, and most importantly, her voice, made me stop and take notice. She reminds me of Victoria Jackson, of Saturday Night Live fame. Of course, Victoria's voice is real, and Melissa's apparently isn't.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I receive dozens of responses each week that women "like" me, yet I never hear from them. If you like me, write to me. Let me know. I realize this is the Twenty-First Century, and we live in an "instant" society: instant oil changes, instant credit, instant breakfast, instant divorce. However, the things truly worthwhile in life are those things that are earned though hard work. Those things that come too easily, we never fully appreciate.

That being said (or written), I am seeking a woman who can communicate. Who can write to me, and respond to my thoughts. Who is willing to share her hopes, dreams and goals, and is genuinely interested in what I have to say. But it all starts with a letter, and this is something foreign and unachievable to the vast majority I've encountered.

Of course, to write back, with the goal of developing a relationship, the individual behind the account must be as advertised, meaning real. A real woman. Based on my experiences elsewhere, I'm beginning to wonder. As I shared above, I approach this system with cautious scepticism.
