My self-summary
Self Styled, Modern Day Warrior/Poet. No, wait, that's too pretentious. It screams 'unemployed artist", and I make a living at it, so....

How about "Sensitive tough guy seeks petite superhero"? no...

"regular Joe ISO former trophy wife with generous heart and alimony"? no....

Just a man, making his way through the world, without crushing his soul or those around him.

it said I need to add to my self summary to get to 68%. I feel that's important...;-) One more thing to get me to 74%: I have a history of picking unavailable women, so please be available. You'd think, on a DATING site, I wouldn't have to mention that, but alas, as it turns out, I do...

I am clever, funny, and creative

THIS JUST IN:
Women Who Send 1st Message Likely to Have Higher Rate of Responses, Company Study Says
According to the OkCupid study, straight women who start a conversation in online dating are 2.5 times more likely to receive a response than straight men who start a conversation.

So, get out there, Sadie Hawkins....
What I’m doing with my life
Well, I make my living as a photographer, which is fantastic, but I started out as an actor, then became an acting teacher, started directing commercials, but somehow wound up doing the thing I wanted to do when I was a kid; Take pictures. Life's funny. Along the way, I coached Little League, worked with underprivileged kids, tended bar, taught traffic school, waited tables and edited porn. But not all at once. That would be wrong. I believe in artistic integrity. Actually, I believe in integrity period. It makes me an outcast, but I can live with that. Broken hearts, house fires, threesomes, 3 point shooting championships...I saved a little girls' life once with the Heimlich maneuver....What a long, strange trip it's been. ..
I’m really good at
well, the Heimlich, apparently. And other stuff too. see above. Modesty prohibits my listing them here...;-)

Actually, if you Google ANTISHADOW, you'll see what I'm good at....
The first things people usually notice about me
My head. Then my shoulders.

No, this isn't a shampoo ad.
The six things I could never do without
Art Donuts Exercise Love Sex Tempurpedic mattress
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a better man. And donuts.

And,...what's with all the cats, Ladies?
Seriously. At least half the time I click on a profile that I immediately like, you have cats.
Don't you know nice, half-jewish LA boys are allergic to cats?
Besides, cats serve no purpose. They don't fetch, they don't scare away intruders. Are there "seeing eye" cats for the blind? No. Are there bomb sniffing cats at the airport? No.
When you're lost in a snowdrift, does a CAT come get you with whiskey around his neck? NO!
Lose the cat...find a man. A man with a dog, probably. That simple.
On a typical Friday night I am
Home, sadly, catching up on TiVo.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been typing for 20 years, and I still type "form" instead of "from". every time.
You should message me if
You're a morning person who values her alone time. That way, you can have the mornings, and I'll take the late nights.
Or not, just a thought...

A quick note: Obviously, I try not to take the "online dating" thing too seriously, as in, this is not an ad for me, it's just a small slice of me, much like if we ran into each other at Ralph's, I made some stupid joke that you laughed at, asked you out and, despite me being dressed like a teenager, you decided to give me your number. Now, you go home, and you don't know a whole lot about me, but you were intrigued, and open to the possibility that you might have just met a very cool, interesting guy. Might have. Same thing here. So, if I write you a quick note saying hi and telling you that I thought you were cool and pretty, take it for what it's worth, keep an open mind, and write me back. You never know, you may have just gotten a note from a very cool guy. May have.....;-)

I'm just not going to write some long, self involved description of myself, begging you to consider me. "Hi. I"m tall and my teeth are straight. I like dogs and Micheal Bolton too!"
Editors note: I do NOT like Michael Bolton! Give me some Elvis Costello...

FOR THE RECORD:
I am who I say I am. Born in 1964. Six-foot-one. 225. Fit. Imperfect, but fit.
Apparently, there a lot of men on here who lie about their age and height. I keep hearing this, over and over. Ridiculous. I don't lie. Unless my Mom is asking how my love life is. Then I say "fine". That's a lie.
Everything else is accurate. I promise.
In fact, several people recently told me I actually look much younger than I am. I'll roll with that.

For the record. Pt 2.:
I am not into, nor will I ask you to participate in, threesomes. That was 20 years ago. It was my wilder youth. Point is, I've lived, had quite an interesting road, and my experiences have shaped me into the man I am today. And basically, I like the kind of man I've become.
But, for the record, I am a one woman man. Threesomes not required or desired.

it's funny, I saved someone's life, but that NEVER gets mentioned...
