My self-summary
When is the last time you've been truly surprised by someone you've met? I hope it's been recently, but I suspect it likely hasn't happened lately.
We all say we know what we are looking for, until we find fascination in something we've never seen.
I'm 35, single and don't have children. I love mid-century antiques, documentaries, and 60's pop music.
I grew up on the east coast, but have lived all over the midwest an adult. I love learning about people, cultures and the things that make them at once similar and different.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the foreman at an intermodal freight terminal. Every day I make order out of chaos, coordinate the illogical, and find success where and when it seems unavailable. In a strangely Zen way, it gives structure and peace to my life. I love it!
Outside of work I enjoy football, antiquing, crossword puzzles, and documentary films.
I’m really good at
Crossword puzzles, trivia, finding my way around.
The first things people usually notice about me
People often ask me, "what is wrong?" It's because I have one of those "resting b.... faces." Can't really help it. It's just what I look like.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How difficult it's been to meet new people here. I mean, I know dating is hard for everyone. We all have our faults, our issues, the things we want and the things we want to be able to feel. As life has gone on and the field of available people to meet keeps shrinking, I think a lot about the ways in which people seem to look for reasons not to meet people. I know, it's scary. There's pro'lly nothing more scary than going out to meet a virtual stranger in real life. Save maybe actually admitting that underneath the fear and all the effort we all put in to save face, we more than actually just want to meet people, deep down we know we NEED to. Nothing makes one feel more helpless and afraid than admitting we need something we don't have.
Where I am in life right now, heading into my mid-thirties, I feel at times that I am getting too old for a lot of the things the bulk of singles like to do. Take Meetup for example, most of the meetups for single people involve beach volleyball and pub crawls. I have nothing against it as an activity if people want to do that, it just really isn't me. I don't listen to a lot of new music and I never liked clubs/concerts that much anyway. Plus I work a lot and, ya' know, I gotta get up early, man.
On a typical Friday night I am
Asleep, At Work, Walking Downtown, at any of the latest late shows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Whenever I get the chance I watch "Let's Make a Deal" with Wayne Brady because something about his voice and mannerisms make me feel a strange sensation of peace and wellbeing. I don't know why.
You should message me if
You are willing to, "...take a chance, on an unknown kid" - Travis Birkenstock, "Clueless"-1995.
Seriously, if you want to meet someone new who has a honest desire for the fresh experience of learning about, and hopefully from a new person, just let me know and we can give it a shot.
The two of us
