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. If you want to know me, show interest and respect, and be real, because I'm choosy about my company. I'm looking for an equal who won't jerk me around. Best of luck to you if you're anything else.
Someday I hope to teach physics at a little college (preferably nearby), and also plan to write hilarious novels full of big ideas. I stay in shape (run, swim, bike, weights, ball sports), and 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.* (A deal breaker.)
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.
No jaded cynics, please.
