My self-summary
Call me a work in progress, or a bundle of contradictions in search of resolution. A small-town boy drawn to the pulsing dynamism of the city. A cosmopolitan intellectual torn between highbrow pretensions and lowbrow cravings. A Mac devotee befuddled by my smartphone. An Obama centrist with libertarian tendencies and contrarian impulses. A globe-hopscotching traveler entranced by my tiny neighborhood. A churchgoing Christian with a streak of skepticism. Intensely serious, with a side of playful irony and ironic wordplay. Confused? Me too.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an editor and sometime writer/blogger for a national entertainment magazine and website. In my downtime, I'm given to serendipitous rambles in the city--or historical/pop-cult excursions into the American heartland. Trying to be more active in my church and give back to my community.
I’m really good at
Being an English grammarian from hell (but I try not to be a scold about it). Writing allows people to turn the tables on me and give me a taste of my own medicine, so to speak. Outside of work, my most notable talent is whipping up cakes, pies, and my grandmother's holiday fudge.
The first things people usually notice about me
Truthfully, I have no clue, but let me guess: my prosthetic arm? My physical clumsiness (grace)? My conversational pauses and fumbles? My biting sense of humor? I hesitate to ask.

Food: Special fondness for Italian and Indian cuisine; weakness for calorific diner food; hopeless craving for fat and sugar pitted against organic puritanism
The six things I could never do without
Food; clean water; oxygen; warm clothing; my prosthetic limbs; my computer. Am I being excessively literal-minded here?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming and the national deficits (seriously). The cost of caring for elderly relatives and educating my beautiful, brilliant nephews and niece. The existential terror of growing older and losing cherished friends and kinfolk. Do I sound like too much of a Debbie Downer?
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. Then, unwinding with a stiff helping of broccoli TV (Bill Maher is a mainstay). Yes, I need to get out more often. Just don't ask me to brave the partying weekend throngs; weeknights are better for going out and socializing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been a Doctor Who fan for nearly a quarter of a century. Other than that TMI tidbit, I'll reserve my deep dark secrets for an in-person tete-a-tete.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 33–55
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
You've read all of the above and find your curiosity piqued.

P.S. Brownie points (literally) if you make me laugh. You need not be the second coming of Dorothy Parker, but I'm not as gloomy as I may appear in my photos.
