My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Fun facts about me:
1. Greatest face with mortality: Once jumped out of a boat in Mexico and swam to shore fearing for my life. (Ok, it's a long story and not that dramatic).
2. Greatest accomplishment: Took care of someone close to me who was very ill.
3. Biggest failure: Unsuccessful in building a Batman Utility Belt for my 5-year old nephew after staying up all night armed with glue, cardboard, spray paint and 4 empty menthos containers. I caved and bought one for $16.99 at Toys R Us.
4. Wildest Dream: To drop everything and become a professional poker player.

I can be serious, philosophical and intense but also goofy and playful. I like to talk - am very interested in communication and process in a relationship, and I get along best with people who enjoy talking deeply about things. I connect best with people through understanding who they are, and being likewise understood. If that happens, I will be sweet, supportive, affectionate and totally have your back.

Born in Indiana (not India), raised in California.

As for why I'm single - I've had great relationships in the past but I can't see myself living a life where children are not involved in some way. For me, helping raise the next generation is something I want to take part in. So if you don't have kids, don't want kids, or generally don't like ids, I would welcome you as a friend into my life, but likely not much more.

If you are interested in going hiking, stand-up paddle boarding, or salsa/tango dancing, drop me a note.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Figuring out how to finish all my unfinished life projects.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Guestimates, useless trivia, flexibility, weighing pros and cons,
salsa dancing, guacamole.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A genuine lack of insincerity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
All time favorite book is "The Unbearable Lightness of Being".

Movies: LOTR, Thank you for Smoking, Dodgeball, Blue Valentine, Mulholland Drive, Amelie, Closer, Strictly Ballroom, Raising Arizona, 3:10 to Yuma. And I have a weird obsession with naval warfare movies.

TV: Anything binge-watchable. Breaking Bad is literally the best thing that has ever happened in this world. Ever. Except maybe Game of Thrones. It's sick, I know.

Music. Favorite band is the Smiths. But I love this guy's covers - I like the idea of a second life as an artist.

Food: throw in some hot chillies and I'm generally happy.

Radio: This American Life (would the stories be half as deep without all the jazz interludes?).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Something to look forward to
2. Decent people to balance out the indecent ones
3. Intrigue
4. The combination of really good chocolate and almonds. I could do without it, but why?
5. Salt
6. A wildcard for anything that I missed.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If it would be funny at all to paint a racing stripe on my Prius.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
…probably eating a taco at some point.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I played the bass drum in my high school marching band.

Surest path to my heart is through an offer of tech support.
