My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
UPDATE 5/14: See below for the schtick. But know that I'm looking for "her". To "her": wherever you are, just get here. Or I'll come to you, wherever you are. Doesn't matter. There are plenty of side streets to take while stuck in traffic….(to the dumb ones: "traffic" is where "she" is right now. Maybe she knows it, maybe she doesn't, but that's the cool thing with love…circumstances don't matter, so long as we find each other. And, we will. We have several people waiting with champagne and snacks to celebrate). Just get your ass here. Seriously. Get here. The schtick:

What to say, what to say…

Open and honest communication is where I start. While I fully suspect, especially via services like this, that those two things are vanishing commodities, I still have a sort of faith that will (eventually) prove me wrong. And I want to be wrong about this. After perusing through profiles, looking for someone that I might "click" with, I've discovered that most people on here either 1, don't like me, 2, are frightened by my image, and/or 3, simply want something that they may never find within the online realm, supposedly from me. Yet I'm still here...just waiting for her to, as I've said for awhile, "arrive".

No, I'm not a chronic dating-type, emailing everyone I see with hopes of starting something. I'm actually quite selective; I know what works for me, as well as who I work well for. Being in a position professionally to meet a lot of people in a relatively short amount of time has clued me into what I personally prefer in a potential mate. With most profiles condemning those who've created the "online stereotype" (read: guys with shirtless pics, terrible comments/emails, etc.), I'm trying to persevere, and act properly. Whether you, dear Reader, accept this or not, I'm still here and doing my thing; I'm just trying to weed through the conventional bullshit, and see if "you" are out there.

I'm particular with how you carry yourself via photo(s), and how you type whatever you type (yes, it's true, proper grammar goes a long way with me...I'd like to think any self-respecting male thinks the same, but I'm quite sure I'm wrong). Most of what I've received has been atrocious, and they could benefit from continued learning/adult literacy classes. Just saying...

I'm not looking for anything temporary...no one-nighters here. Just the chance to meet someone worth a damn, that takes pride in herself, what she does, who she befriends...you know, the "should be" regular stuff.

Now, the nuts and bolts:

I am a dad to a super cool girl, who lives with her mom out of town. I'm also a musician, which turns off a lot of people (thank you, stereotype). I'm cool with my life….I've got my job, car, place, and the ability to avoid drama. I try to roll with the ups and downs as gracefully as I can, usually learning something new along the way.

What I'm saying is that you, dear Reader, have found me one way or another. Yes, I have my quirks. I consider them character-building. I have my various idiosyncrasies...I call them awesome. I have a past, but we all do. I'm looking to get past all of that, and am hoping for someone to share it with, as she shares her's with me.

I'm waiting for "you" to arrive.

If you can honestly say that you carry yourself well, with few/no hesitation(s), message me and let me know you're out there. Location doesn't matter. I'm pretty damn confident that I've not found you yet. But I will...however I have to. I will find you...unless you find me first. Another way to put this is:

If I haven't already done so with you, make sure your sack of bricks hits me square in the face. After all this cyber meat market crap, I'll need a good lashing. Take that last comment as you will.

Jesus...this profile is long. Who needs a drink?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm living it! I'll save this bit for whoever actually meets me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing/building various instruments, cooking, being goofy, sarcasm, not being offensive to those that simply don't get "it", and being offensive to those that simply do get "it" (see what I did there?), pointing out that you probably did not see what I did there, wearing long sleeved-anything, being a long distance-dad, sudoku, vacuuming, and (apparently) misplacing hyphens. Oh!…I think I'm pretty good at giving a speech (not the first thing on my list of activities, but I guess I gotta do what I gotta do).

To whoever "she" is: at this point in my profile, if you've read every word thus far, you should've grinned no less than 4 times, and laughed (out loud, perhaps chuckled) no less than 3. Now…you may continue (score another grin with that)…:)

And, I really don't speak sanskrit…who the fuck does?? Jeebus, just wanted to add a little color here. Please stop asking me!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A firm handshake and impeccable style! Just kidding about that 2nd one…

I'd have to say my hair, which some frown upon. I say NAY…it's part of me, and I love it. Then my dimples (yeah…dumb). Then the fact that I make references to every kind of music that I know of. Truth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: not a big reader, except for tech/nerdy stuff.
Movies: Anything, except foreign. I have this thing against subtitles.
TV: smart shows….
Music: Rock, rock, and more rock, with everything else peppered in to taste. My go-to playlist would have ORIGINAL Sabbath, PJ, SFK, something borrowed, and something blue.
Food: No ketchup please. Or chicken livers. And I prefer Corona without the lime. Everything else welcome!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My daughter's laugh
A guitar
Humor
A well-made writing utensil
Indulgence
Self-respect
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What to make for dinner, having a positive mindset (as best I can), what the chords are to the song I just heard and loved, why my damn cat is the best alarm clock I could EVER have (true!), and my significant other….whoever and wherever she may be. And will "she" really have a sack of bricks in tow? It'd be super cool if "she" did. I know womens' purses contain a myriad of crap, but really?! Bricks fit in there, too??!! Yeah. Bring it, lady. Bring it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at a show or sleeping. Lately, I've been quite taken with scouring the Interwebs for new music to occupy myself with. Found some great shit, and have heard some humdingers (there's 1 I found that is SO awful he's good).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not the most private thing, but I'm drawn to 2 things: touching a 9V battery to my tongue, and the smell of magazine pages. Both are unlike any sensation on the planet. Strange, I know…:)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
…you're being chased by a ghost. My proton pack is charged and ready. I'll have to borrow a trap from Chevy Chase though.

…you're interested (please say something more than just a greeting).

…you're interesting (I'm not ADD or anything, but please have some substance…I have high expectations regarding "her", and "she" is no dullard). I'm not kidding with this one…"she" will have high expectations regarding me.

…you don't believe in the typical bullshit stereotype that all musicians are bad, and/or have no other goals. Simply rubbish, and I like to think I'm proof of that…fuck that, I know I am.

…you know that Chevy Chase wasn't in "Ghostbusters".

…you believe in "love at first sight"; meaning, you're checking this silly website to see if I've emailed back, because you just felt…something. Chances are, to "her", I'm doing the same thing now.

Thanks for reading. Now, seriously…where the hell are "you"? Dinner's getting cold, and reheating it later will taste like shit...
