I own a huge villa right on the Iowa coast, and in the summers I sail a trireme to Montana, where I pillage and plunder. This is where all of my gold came from. I seek a sturdy woman who does not speak, to darn my socks and bear me 16 large children. Arrr. We will purchase many sheep, and roam the land as shepherd nomads. We will have a dog named Augustus, and he will herd both the sheep and our children. We will live in mud huts in the winter, and survive on grubs.
OK, probably not. But if you're still reading, maybe you share my goofy sense of humor and attention span.
I'm a kind, educated, easy-going, big-hearted man with good integrity, a job, no addictions whatsoever, and a head firmly screwed onto my shoulders. I am emotionally literate, and treat women well. I'm on this website because I'm an introvert (INFP), not because I'm selling low. I'm looking for an equal who won't jerk me around. That you?
I am very fortunate to have the freedom to live life on my own terms, and after no small amount of trial and error, I have discovered that I am only happy in a career that I can actually see making the world a better place. For work I teach math, physics, and chemistry on the Internet on a one-on-one basis. I get paid to mentor youth, and teach them about how amazing our universe is. I just love the work, which has the added perk of a flexible schedule that would likely make you jealous. I can work full-time, finish up my graduate studies simultaneously, and still have free time for friends and recreation. When I finish the degree (which is mostly just writing at this point), I plan to use the extra hours in my day to teach physics classes at some little college nearby for fun, and to write hilarious novels full of big ideas.
I stay in shape (run, swim, bike, weights, ball sports), and would prefer to share my active lifestyle with my partner. Would love to bring someone with me to RAGBRAI next year.
When shit isn't working in my life, I work on it. The motto "work hard, play hard" is popular these days, but I think it makes life sound like some sort of uninspired competition. The work and the play are just things we do. I prefer life itself to be more like a slow stroll through the woods.
Please be quirky, genuine, free-spirited, honest, very intelligent, self-aware, kind, conscientious, healthy, happy to be alive.
Please be capable of feeling/expressing earnest gratitude and remorse. Seems like a simple thing, but not always, turns out.
Please have an imagination and a sense of adventure.
Please like big, tall, fuzzy guys, because I go 6'5”/240, and I'm not waxing my chest, even if you say please with sugar on top.
