My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi All!

I'm a geeky, gadget laden, software developer living in Bellevue looking for my match. No rush, though! I'm taking my time and getting things right this time. I just hope the getting things right part happens sometime this century. And before death.

I have two wonderful kids--ages 13 and 16, and am a very engaged single father who lives and breathes being a good dad. And yes, I still have the time and freedom to date!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
When not coding or beating the children, I'm very active either mountain-biking, running, or wrenching on one of my motorcycles. I especially love mountain-biking, though, and would love to find someone who kicks ass on the trails too, but it's not a deal killer if mountain biking isn't your thing.

Anything on a bicycle is cool with me, actually, including road biking. I'm the kind of guy who looks up at a long steep hill on my bike and grins and mutters "Oh yeah...", then sets out to dominate it through force of will, and breaks out in giddy laughter when I get to the top; just before the vomiting kicks in.

Motorcycles are also a big part of my life and I'm an avid sports motorcyclist. I absolutely LOVE riding my motorcycles up in the mountains and on back country roads and taking them across the sound on the ferry system!

I'm also an INT-J personality type and good at imposing discipline and hewing order out of the maelstrom, but am easygoing and love to joke around and make you laugh.

I am very much into fitness too and try my best to run 6 miles a day, 5 days a week (it's what I can do in an hour). Someday I'd like to get into Iron Man competitions or at least run one full marathon before my mightily thewed body gets too ancient.

Most of the time I'm either coding, reading on my iPad, searching for the ONE, or taking weekend trips with the kids. Barring that, I'm always actively searching for clever ways to save lots of money for the future.

If I could take a year's sabbatical I think I'd like to sign on as a volunteer on an archaeological dig someplace, perhaps in Ireland or Germany, and just dig up castles for a year!

But since there's no sabbatical on the horizon at the moment, I'm just doing what I can to improve my skills as a dev, saving lots of money, and working on being the best single dad that I can be, while also getting in a few ferry rides and discovering new trails for mountain biking whenever time permits.

I own a few motorbikes (and will be buying more), and really enjoy taking them on the ferry system to explore the islands. These trips are best of course when there's a hot chick on the back, or on another bike, to ride with me!

Oh, and I drive fast-- because my spirit *demands* it.

And that will *never* ever, ever, ever, never, never, ever x bzillion, change.

Oh yeah, and dating too!

Women make the world more fabulous!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Driving motorcycles at insanely fast speeds.
Chasing my cats around the house.
Filthy Flirting.
Telling the most amazing stories ever told by a human over drinks.
Having empathy for others, especially icky homeless people.
Giving affection, but only to girls.
Fixing stuff around the house.
Customizing and tinkering with my motorcycles.
Building computers.
Anything technical.
Dominating others through brutally superior smack talk.
Giving people...pause, as they consider whether or not I really just said what they thought they just heard.
Teasing you until you snort out coffee through your nose.
Wasting time answering these bloody silly essay questions.
Being a good, loyal, mate.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I glow with magnetic caveman energy. That my shining aura casts the long shadow of a rudely dancing Satyr across the room's walls. And when talking to women, I can't help but look them straight in the chest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I LOVE READING! I especially love reading biographies and history and science fiction and sword and sorcery, and endless amounts of coding and technology books to stay viable. My Kindle Fire, or iPad Mini 2, is what I'm reading on every night in bed.

My favorite movies include "The Seven Samurai" followed closely by "Dr. Strangelove", "A New Leaf" (if you love the brilliant, witty, dialog in this movie--then we are compatible!), "Lawrence of Arabia", "My Favorite Year", "Harold and Maude", "Brazil", "A Clockwork Orange" and Akira Kurosawa's "Throne of Blood" (which is a Japanese retelling of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" but with Samurai), and anything ever produced by Pixar. My favorite director is Akira Kurosawa (the Coen brothers steal all their best camera work from Kurosawa!), and speaking of the Coen brothers A Serious Man is a delight, Raising Arizona and The Big Lebowski are joys, and Blood Simple is a must see, especially for those who care about good screenwriting. Rocky Horror Picture Show! Hah! What fun! (It's on NetFlix too!), Office Space love it! And an offbeat little indie cult film called Rushmore by Wes Anderson and starring Bill Murray (who's been in several of Anderson's quirky movies).

Monty Python!

Gary Larson! If you 'get' Larson's humor, then we're compatible. Seriously. Done deal!

Guilty pleasures:
I love watching Family Guy and Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Metalocalypse and Venture Bros but only tolerate small bits of Robot Chicken at a time because it gets pretty lame.

My favorite food?

I love Indian food, especially lamb curry, Thai food, especially Mussamun Beef, practically anything Mexican, and ALWAYS good old fashioned 'murrican steak and potatoes!

Music? I love techno and trance, the louder and thumpier the better!

Death Cab For Cutie's "I Will Possess Your Heart" is just hauntingly beautiful to me. I love this song. Normally I don't get all choked up and teary when a dude sings, but this song is romantic and passionate in a way that guys understand. It's mesmerizing to me. (Ask me why and we'll talk about it!)

Just about anything by the Black Keyes, especially "Your Touch", "I Got Mine", "She's Long Gone", and "Black Mud".

On tv I love watching Ghost Adventures, My Ghost Story, Ghost Hunters and anything about the supernatural that takes itself seriously and tries to find answers. I hate hype and love the scientific approach.

I also love the Food Channel and get a real kick out of anything with Robert Irvine "Restaurant Impossible" and Anthony Bourdain "No Reservations" hosting. But all the divey shows about manly BBQs and booze are great too! Hah!

Love watching MMA Mixed Martial Arts and Ultimate Fighting on SPIKE tv! I love the warrior spirit -- definitely a guy thing, and I've seriously toyed with the idea of competing as well. It would actually be a natural sport for me since I wrestled in college and love to grapple. I'd probably try a combination of muay thai kickboxing and jiujitsu.

Cafe Racer is another favorite tv show of mine since I'm an avid sport motorcyclist.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My children
2) Chivalry (it consumes the deepest roots of my man-soul)
3) A fast motorcycle!
4) A good woman/partner/mate
5) Lusty sex on the kitchen floor
6) Someone to love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My children and how to keep them safe and happy. How to be a better dad. How to be a better person. How to save the maximum possible for retirement. Life in general. What will tomorrow bring? Where did my hair go? Why do people in Washington State drive so goddamned slowly?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out on a date and dancing. Or at home with the kids, watching Ghost Adventures or something on Netflix or at the movies with them.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I need a mate. Life is too short to live alone.

When I read a paragraph that takes less than half the page, I usually read the beginning and ending at the same time and simultaneously work towards the middle, and retain everything. Yeah, weird. But very fast...

I believe in the importance of good karma. Just be a good person to the center of your soul and all will be well.

However, sometimes I chase my cats around the house with those little popitz things. And then my daughter catches me and makes me stop. Oddly, this usually only happens at the end of the month, when I should be sitting down and doing the bills...

And since many, MANY, women seem not to pay any attention at all to my height data in the "My Details" section, choosing instead to basque in the glory of my buff pictures alone, I am 5ft 6.77 inches tall.

Yes, 5ft 6.77 inches.

All of it purest manbeef.

Yes, I had to go there.

I am so very tired of 'surprising' women on first dates who think I'm a 6ft 4inch hulk...

I'm very broad shouldered, fit, and strong, ladies.

Not tall.

No way. No how.

Yes, I curse God frequently for doing this to me.

But I truly don't care if you're taller than me. I LOVE Amazons! So I'm here for you if you have a thing for really strong big-armed shorter guys! ;-)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are fit and active.

You like fast motorcycles and swoon for the hunky studmuffin daredevils..ahem, who ride them!

You're interested in the paranormal!

You are not one of those closed-minded dogmatic pushy types seeking gelded male yes-'men' who *must* share your political views -- lest you find not the clone of thyself thouest pine for.

You consider yourself to be an intellectual.

You are *not* politically correct!

You have ink anywhere on your fit feminine body.

Extra points if you like mountain biking!

Super duper extra points if you like riding or driving fast motorcycles!

You don't have a problem with gentlemen paying for everything on dates and taking care of all the arrangements.

You're looking for a best friend and mate and not just another date.

Did I mention the extra points for mountain biking? ;-)

**Please forgive me if I don't write back to you, but it usually means I don't think we're a match. If you really need me to respond, though, please just ask for clarification and I will answer. The whole singles pain in the ass dating ritual can be such a brutal, pitiless, wounding process ( We ALL get burned! NO ONE is immune!) and I sure don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.**
