My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a software engineer by day and a hockey player by night. I go on road trips, hike, bike, jog, and do all sorts of other things for fun and exercise. I also read a lot and tend to be very difficult to offend or anger.

I am good at helping to see see the bright side of a seemingly dark situation.

I can also help someone work through a truly dark situation; I am very loyal to friends, family, and, of course, to you. I will support you when you need it and simply enjoy being with you when you don't.

Interests of mine include the PNW standards of bicycling, hiking, camping, and general outdoorsiness as well as some not-so-standards such as playing hockey or volleyball. I would like to go kayaking sometime and also learn to go cross-country skiing. How does snowshoeing in the mountains together while the snow falls around us sound to you?

When we're feeling a bit less adventurous, I would love to go out on the town or spend an evening cuddling on the couch with you while we watch a movie or read. A perfect night would include a romantic meal, a walk in the moonlight, and a movie while snuggled up on the couch.

My sense of humor runs the gamut from dark humor to total irreverence and word play. I tend to take things literally if I think it's funny to do so.

A lot of this may sound typical to you. The fact is that I'm different from a typical man in a lot of ways, so here are a few ways in which I'm different from most of the guys you meet.

* I really listen when you talk to me. When you are talking, I am listening, not thinking of the next thing I want to say. I want to know exactly what you have to say, not just get the gist of it by listening to every third or fourth word.

* I am empathetic. I can easily see both sides of a disagreement and work towards a mutually satisfactory solution to the problem.

* I am not afraid to talk about my emotions. In fact, I encourage talk about how you and I are feeling. I truly want to know how you feel and want you to know how I feel.

* I'm very open about everything. I have no secrets. Ask me anything and I will answer honestly. A lot of people say "I'm an open book" but then won't answer or are offended by very personal questions. That's not me; ask away and you may be surprised what you learn about me.

* I really am 6'2", just like it says on my profile. I really don't understand people who lie about their height. It seems like it would be pretty obvious upon meeting someone if they are several inches shorter than they claimed on their profile.

* I am not interested in a hookup. Not even a little bit.

* I am not intimidated by intelligent or strong women. In fact, I am looking for a strong, smart, honest, and independent woman who appreciates a strong, smart, honest, independent man who treats her well. Ideally, we'll be able to share daily laughter and adventure together.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am established in my career and work for a very profitable company that is a leader in its field, so I'm very financially secure and stable.

I try to do what I believe is right and make the world around me a slightly better place for everyone I come in contact with. I recently volunteered for the Sierra Club and Habitat for Humanity and intend to continue volunteering for both of them when I can. (How would you like to help build a house together?)

I believe everyone has a right to as pleasant a life as possible, regardless of income, sex, race, color, creed, sexual preference, gender identity, hair color, shoe size, elbow room, tooth count, hairy moles (or bald ones), resemblance to a prehistoric fish, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
touching the tip of my nose with my tongue; finding the positive in nearly any situation; designing and writing software; seeing both sides of an issue; resolving conflicts; writing really lame introductory emails; not stepping on the cat; being honest and open about my feelings; romance; kissing
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height, my eyes, and my sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I am partial to sci-fi and fantasy books, especially if there's some humor (think "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and the Discworld books), but I also really enjoy alternate history and historical fiction (Bernard Cornwell, especially). I also read non-fiction; mostly history and biographies.

Music: just about anything, really; the music on my phone runs from classical through folk music and jazz and on to rock, pop, and even a little rap and metal.

Food: I'll eat almost anything, but Indian and Mexican are my favorites. I don't like peanuts.

Movies: Blazing Saddles, This is Spinal Tap, Ghostbusters, Young Frankenstein, Galaxy Quest, The Blues Brothers, A Beautiful Mind, The King's Speech, The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally (most romantic comedies, as a matter of fact), most any Star Trek movie (yes, I'm a Trekkie, but not hardcore), the original Planet of the Apes series. I also love really bad "B" movies. Plan 9 From Outer Space is a classic.

TV: I don't actually watch a lot of TV; weeks will go by when I don't turn it on. My favorite shows for when I do watch TV include Red Dwarf, The Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, Leverage, Futurama, Orange is the New Black, and Hockey Night in Canada.

Shows: Spamalot, Stomp, Phantom of the Opera, Xanadu
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
a cool night breeze in the bedroom
family (including my cat Phoenix)
off-by-one errors
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What can be done to make the world a better place; what book I'm going to read next; what the world would be like if the South had won the Civil War (or some other major turning point in history had gone the other way); what the heck is Phoenix saying?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Very little is private to me. Ask me anything and I will answer. That might be a good way to liven up the conversation if needed for some reason. :-)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like to laugh. (I guess that doesn't narrow it down a whole lot; I mean, who doesn't like to laugh?)

You're very open and willing to talk about yourself. I find openness and honesty refreshing and sexy.

You want to play some cribbage or Scrabble on a cold winter's night.

You're going to write more than just "Hi", "Hey there", or "How are you?" (I don't respond to such messages.)

If I sent you a message and you've gotten this far on my profile, write me back. You might be pleasantly surprised.

If you're bored with the usual, hit me up. I am the unexpected.
