My self-summary
I have a pro-me bias. You're going to have to ask someone else about this.
What I’m doing with my life
Have my own wine importing company that is 2+ years old. Working a lot and love my work as it is a dream realized and it is very successful. On the side I sell diamond encrusted wine bottles to select rappers and entrepreneurs.
I’m really good at
Moderation and self-discipline. Making uncomfortable silences more uncomfortable. I can make anyone laugh... especially at me. Even animals. Especially animals. I can mis-pell definetly at least 25 different ways. I'm really good at that. Defineitely really good at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
my gold fronts and whatever pair of dope ass kicks I am wearing.

The six things I could never do without
the gym

I spend a lot of time thinking about
That the most important thing in life is our relationships to other people. Other things are nice, but when you strip it all away, your people matter the most.

The profound culture shock I have coming back to the USA after traveling in Europe for work and why it gets worse as I get older.

Why so many women on OKC all follow the same profile trends. First it was was hair mustache pictures, then it was taco something user name and now it is "I am an INFJ or INFT."
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating some sort of artery-clogging food and washing it down with some high acid fruitless white wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I belch double rainbows and the pigeons fly over me, right side up/belly down, and not belly up towards the sky. That is a very very good thing.
You should message me if
You think clubbing baby seals with elephant tusks is a fun first date.

Also I am 41, in November, but since I turned the big 40, life has changed on OK Cupid (not for the better) so have 39 in there for search purposes.

Oh, and if you don't like cats, don't bother. Had cats for 25 years. Have two rescue brothers now. They are part of the package. I know, 41, single, two cats screams date me, but the cat stereotype is over with thanks to the Internet, and if it isn't for you, keep passing me by.
