Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a mix of traits, a bit of a Renaissance man.
I can do a lot of things and can generally figure it out if I
can't. I wonder if describing myself, I will seem bi-polar. I have
a lot of interests.
I live in my head a bit and it suits my lifelong goal of writing. I
am fanciful and quick to grab healthy dose of the imagination. I
can be light-hearted and fun-loving.
However, I live in my body a bit also which makes me more of the
artist, and I have the true artist's eye. I eat well and
consciously, try to work out daily and I like to dance.
I am an eleven year firefighter: I'm really into putting out fires,
but that doesn't stop me from starting a few ... no wait -
metaphorically, of course! I have been giving a lot back to my
I can be both serious and silly, sometimes at the same time. I have
a strong sense of the practical but can mix it up with a bit of
whimsy. People have always said I'm funny, with a sharp wit, but
sometimes I can sometimes slip into the obtuse.
I am content with my life and would be happy on my own. But a
recent experience showed me how much I love good connection.
I tend to go for women who are very smart, and especially those
with a bit of irreverent humor.
I would probably be most inspired by someone whose viewpoint
captivates me in some fashion and with whom the talk comes easily,
once we get to know each other.
I would also like that person to be interested in life, both the
internal and external terrain, and be able to talk about and share
experience without being critical.
I'm well-traveled and, though I haven't been able to get away as
much as I used to, do enjoy traveling and have, indeed, lived
outside this country for about eight years. I find the people and
cultures most interesting, and generally prefer swag-style of
travel to luxury - one tends to see more, though a posh resort from
time to time is excellent. I love food.
I'm well-read and a literary penchant of some sort in a partner is
a bonus. Also bit of an artist, so knowledge/appreciation of the
arts an extra feather.
I've been in some very fulfilling relationships. What I've liked
about those has been a sort of ease of affection, playfulness, and
also honesty and integrity. While not an absolute requirement, deep
connection, I do like if my partner has that capacity, and enjoys
going there from time to time to enrich our understanding of each
other and the world.
I enjoy spontaneity, but not chaos.
I believe I'm a pretty good listener.
I’m really good at

Can I have all that in a single serving, please? I am a bit of a
media guy (and I mean ex-high tech professional - so that geekiness
lingers) and draw much information from the Internet. Though I have
a few shows I've enjoyed (like Breaking Bad - wow!), I do not watch
I read books constantly, and am recently listening to a lot of
audiobooks. I especially like to put one on while cleaning the
house, or with my car's sound system while driving.
Of late, I am tending toward silicon valley start-up stories, self
help variety betterment stuff, and young adult chapter books, such
as Garth Nix, and occasionally some military sci-fi - just 'cos
they're easy listeners.
I love a good movie, and the last one I can remember being
surprised by was the more adolescent A Million Ways to Die in the
West. Monty Python appreciated, absurdly. A well-conceived sci-fi
plot. Even though I have seen many classics, art, foreign and
hi-brow films, I seem to prefer something especially escapist these
I love music of course - originally from Chicago! Slippery funk,
some techno, female vocalists and good blues my current palate, but
that could change. Thievery Corporation, Nina Simone, Ella
Fitzgerald, Regina Spector, Supergrass, the Clash - it's a strange
Great theater, dance, & comedy also a great plus.
I am a bit of a foodie and can sometimes cook up a storm and enjoy
a great restaurant. Much to my surprise, I developed my very own
California affectation - I went gluten-free last year and love it!
