My self-summary
I'm independent, open minded, hopeful and I like to think that I'm empathetic and good-hearted as well. On the other hand, I can be a bit of a procrastinator and I tend to be quiet in groups. Warning: I have no sense of fashion either (see pics). I would say that I am a mix of ISFJ and INTP on that personality scale.

I like to help people but find it difficult to ask for it. Well, unless I'm asking for directions. Contrary to most guys I have no problems pulling over to a gas station and asking for directions as I get lost easily.

I love music but can't carry a tune to save my life. I like dogs but cats more and I love to read about finance, the economy and world events.

I don't have to have the closest parking spot, I don't have to be first in line, I don't need to have the biggest house and I don't want to have the biggest car. I go out of my way to recycle, bus to work, volunteer when I can, and I'm very slow to anger.

I'm afraid that I'm not a foodie. Of course I have my weaknesses but generally if it's easy, quick and especially healthy then I'm usually good.

In the end I'm on here looking for a new relationship but certainly won't turn away a new friend or activity partner. I'm too old to have kids but if you have them that's great. If not, that's fine too. I tend to move slowly on the first few dates as I prefer to be friends first.

I am [kind], [honest], laid back and I like to take things casually.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, looking for someone to hang with and being very appreciative for my job in this crazy economy.
The first things people usually notice about me
You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Tom Waits, Over the Rhine, Regina Spektor, Brandi Carlile, Hayes Carll, old Cowboy Junkies, Peter Tosh, Bob, Bob, Rage, Sarah Maclachan, The Flying Neutrinos, Bright Eyes, Evanescence, Lucinda Williams, Blind Boy Paxton, The Pretty Reckless, ZZ Ward, Strurgill Simpson...

I mainly read non-fiction stuff like current events, history, finance, business, investing. Boring I know, but I like it. MLK is my hero.

I'm a recent convert to audio books too. Holy cow, I can't believe how much I love them.

Shawshank Redemption, The Jerk, Blazing Saddles, Trading Places, Airplane! and flicks like Predator and Aliens...
Six things I could never do without
microfleece sheets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
In no particular order:
World events. Especially in the Middle East.
Markets and the economy.
Oil paintings and other art.
If I should get a new pet.
How much I love my audio books.

Lately I've been wondering if Lady Gaga might ever tour with the Goo Goo Dolls. I think they should. I figure they could call it the Gaga Goo Goo tour. Infants would get in free.

Also, why can't people with high blood pressure just give blood a lot? Wouldn't that work?
(No, I don't have high blood pressure. Fyi. Yet.)

Do they really need to put a sticker on every stinkin' piece of fruit in the grocery store? Really? They mess with my Rainier cherries and I'm writing a letter.

Why people take pictures of their food?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For the longest time I thought the term indie music meant music from India.

I got beat in 5 moves by a six year old in chess once. Now he did go on to finish in the top 7 for his age group at the state tournament so then I felt much better. (Not really.)

I think I'm becoming an apple snob. (The fruit, not the computer.) Fuji's rule.

I'm a super slow at texting. Please be patient.
You should message me if
you'd like to but know that I'm not on here looking for casual sex. I much prefer formal sex.

(That was a joke attempt--just to be clear. Just email me if you want to.)
The two of us
