My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I'm Morgan.
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 steady job I really enjoy, no addictions whatsoever, and a firmly-screwed-on head. I'm on this website because I'm an introvert (INFP) - not because I'm selling low. I treat people well (lovers in particular), but will vanish in a puff of smoke if they are too selfish to return the favor.

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 for life itself to be more like a stroll through the woods.

I stay in shape (run, swim, bike, weights, ball sports), and would strongly prefer to share my active lifestyle with my partner (i.e. please be physically fit). Would love to bring someone with me to RAGBRAI next year.

Please be quirky, genuine, free-spirited, honest, intelligent, self-aware, kind, conscientious, healthy, happy to be alive. Feminism is quite welcome.

*Please have a tendency toward introspection, vulnerability, earnest gratitude, and genuine remorse.*

See how I put stars around that? Please read it twice. If you can't do those things, then you probably don't treat people very well. That doesn't work for me. The stupid relationships from my 20's have taught me lots of great things in my 30's ... but I think I'll look for wisdom elsewhere from here on out, thanks.

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.

Thank you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hopefully, making the world a better place to live. As for work, I'm teaching on the Internet (math, physics, chemistry, mostly), am finishing up a MS degree, and sit on the board of directors for a non-profit organization. Also writing a novel. I do lots of stuff.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
appreciating how hilarious things are, enthusiasm in general, saying what I really mean, giving a shit, being fascinated, following intuition, finding the good in people, laughing off misfortune, evolving, seeking, finding, never giving up, spontaneity, writing, mathematics, building/fixing things, proper grammar ... er, naughty-type stuff ... mostly failing to play guitar, and being tired of this list.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Uh ... that I'm someone unfamiliar? I really have no idea. You're a people, so I guess you'd be a better authority. Feel free to enlighten me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm always reading at least one book, have a huge appetite for a wide range of music, and love any show or movie with good writing and acting (especially cartoons). I absolutely loathe reality TV, and won't watch it. Yes, all of it. It's horrible.


Fiction - I love good satire: Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Joseph Heller, Neal Stephenson, Kurt Vonnegut, John Fowles (who didn't write satire, but was awesome), Neil Gaiman, Carl Hiaasen, Mark Twain. Want to get into Wodehouse next.
Non-fiction: The Way of the Superior Man/anything else by David Deida; Iron John; The Heart of Zen; all physics texts by Lev Landau; Guns, Germs, and Steel; How to See Yourself as You Really Are
Poetry: Whitman, cummings, Neruda, Hafiz, Rumi, Oliver ... in addition to my own stuff.

Movies: The Mexican, Up, The Big Lebowski, Will Ferrell movies, Youth in Revolt, Tropic Thunder, Team America, Idiocracy, Blazing Saddles, The Life of Brian, Snatch, Zombieland, Groundhog Day, Army of Darkness, When Harry Met Sally, absolutely anything with John Cusack, Fight Club, Dead Poet Society, Immortal Beloved, Kevin Costner baseball movies (esp. Bull Durham), etc., etc., and etc.

Shows: Venture Brothers, Adventure Time, Danger Mouse, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, the Tick (greatest cartoon ever), Archer, Homestar Runner, Peep Show, Big Bang Theory, documentaries, sporting events, West Wing, Firefly, Red Dwarf, Fawlty Towers, Battlestar Galactica (the newer one). Oh, and I largely don't watch TV.

Music: Days of the New, Harry Chapin, Faith No More, Audioslave, Cake, Jurassic 5, Beethoven, Counting Crows, Oingo Boingo, Talking Heads, The Prodigy, Old Crow Medicine Show, Johnny Cash, just about anything grungy besides Smashing Pumpkins, Metallica, Pantera, Guster, the Beatles, Tori Amos, Guns 'n' Roses, Jack Johnson, Primus, Traveling Willburys, Queens of the Stone Age, R.E.M., Muse, etc., etc., etc. (etc.) Can't stand artless pop garbage like Katy Perry (or however that's spelled), which invariably causes me to grieve the undignified death of rock and roll.

I like everything except sweet potatoes, hazelnuts, and olives, and I adore strawberries.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
are strawberries, humor, good conversation, downtime, meaning, variety.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
changing the world; mathematics and science; whatever I'm writing currently; what I'm grateful for; damn, these strawberries are amazing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
in low orbit around Saturn.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that you know that one thing that happened that one time, and nobody could figure out how? It was me. Yes, including the chickens.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you think that seems like a good idea. It'll be awesome. You can visit the compound, and meet your sister wives. ;)
