My self-summary
- - - - - - NOTE: the pic that did such a very good job of previewing my eyes was disallowed by the Nazis on some networking site so it's no longer there. As such, the next paragraph makes much less sense that it would were the police state not so active. - - - - - -

Right out of the gate, ladies: my profile pic seems to garner a lot of attention, both positive and negative -- and it's just about 50/50, at least based upon those who mention it. A number of you have commented that I have "beautiful eyes," or "incredible eyes," or, a couple of times "Daniel Day Lewis eyes." (I take it that that's a good thing.) On the other side almost an equal number have told me to lose/change the pic. One woman told me, trying to be helpful I'm certain, that the picture was scary and would drive women away. My reason for putting such an unusual pic in so strategic a position is that my eyes are my best physical attribute (to an ex-gf, my ONLY positive physical attribute - hence the 'ex' part!!) and I figure that I'll 'put 'em out there.' (NOT as in gouge them out, but as present them) Comments, complaints, observations?

Now, the intro: How does one present oneself without sounding arrogant? I don’t know that I’m an adrenalin junkie but I’ve "pushed the bounds" for a good portion of my adult life: bomb disposal technician, parachutist, rugby player, scuba diver, Special Operator ("Green Beret" in the vernacular), one time aspiring stunt man. I’m proud of my French, Irish, German, and Italian heritage. I'm practical, bright, disciplined, and motivated. For those of you into such things, I'm a ESTP. I'm 'baggage free' with no addictions and would only consider the same in anyone I see.

I'm on the lookout for a smart, attractive woman who loves life and all that it entails, both the high points and the low ones; someone who’s just as happy going out as staying in and enjoying a quiet evening; a fit woman who likes the mountains and the water; who is as comfortable camping and hiking as they are in a five star hotel in an exotic world capital.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to stop time. (Really, it's part of my job. More on that if we meet.)
I’m really good at
My job (still have all of my fingers - for a bomb technician, this is pretty good evidence of competence, nes pas?), cooking, logic problems, trivia, math, getting things done, home improvement projects, team building, foreseeing problems, assessing people.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually my eyes, sometimes my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: history, specifically "The Great Bridge" by David McCullough
TV: I don't watch it much except for TWC to catch the forecast and, on occasion, PTI. I'm a HUGE Seinfeld fan . . . the smartest show that ever was . . . but I have all nine seasons on DVD so I don't have to search for reruns.
Movies: Amadeus, the first and third Indiana Jones movies, Tropic Thunder, Back to the Future (clever), Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs
Shows: Guys and Dolls, Blue Man Group, Stomp
Music: classic rock and roll, Tom Petty, Warren Zevon ("Send Lawyers, Guns, and Money!!!!), Frank Zappa, just about anything but hip hop and rap
Food: Italian (hey, I'm a Guido), French, cioppino, ceviche, baklava
The six things I could never do without
In alphabetic order:
- A well funded travel budget and the time to take advantage of it
- An interesting job with great coworkers
- Awesome friends and family
- Intellect with interesting conversation
- Passion and intimacy
- Terrific, eclectic food

Just missing the list at number seven is baklava.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
a million different things. My mind is always going.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no 'typical.' Often I'm on the road or just returning after a trip.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I paid for a Pandora account during the election season so I wouldn't have to listen to the vapid, banal adverts for the liar-in-chief.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 39–54
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you're bright (most important), fit, fun, like to travel, and understand that it's not about the food or the restaurant, it's about the person across the table.
