Note: I don't pay for my OKC account (sorry, but it's a waste of funds). Therefore, If you "Like" me and click the little star, I will have absolutely no idea who you are. So just send me a note to say hi, OK?
My pics are recent -- not 20 years & 20 lbs ago.
I'm a dedicated dad to a terrific girl, fatherhood being the most fulfilling experience of my life (so far). I have time and room for you, too.
I value intelligence, curiosity, and balanced, rational thinking. We all have opinions, but I'm more interested in knowing ABOUT stuff – humanities, science, business, culture, arts, politics, law, media, and language. Ignorance doesn't really complement worthy opinions.
I cook, and I do it well. Fresh, home made, in season, minimally processed. I don’t live to eat, but cooking is good for my soul and your mouth. Dining at home with family and friends is just a damn good thing to do.
Piano -- a great love. I play the occasional club or private gig with favored musicians. I don't do garage rock band stuff.
I love the outdoors in general, esp. wilderness hiking and distance bicycling. I work out semi-regularly and am fit.
In a relationship, I really try to avoid: lots of drama; frequent crises; chaotic or impulsive lifestyle; self-absorption; bad parenting; financial irresponsibility; dogma; discourtesy.
If you have a drink now and then (I definitely do), I hope alcohol makes you even more charming, sweeter, and more affectionate than you already are, as opposed to, say, an embarrassing, uninhibited nitwit. Been there...
I encourage you to read all "our" responses to the OKC questions. I've bypassed many that are just too incredibly stupid. And I don't really want to answer 134 questions about anal sex publicly & online. If you really need those answers, fear not, for all shall be revealed when we meet on our first date at the brand new SphincterWorld Adult Novelty Super Center & Coffee Bar (formerly, Barnes & Noble) right next door to Wal-Mart.
