My self-summary

I have had the honor of sharing my life and my home with my wonderful wife (with whom I am madly in love) for more than four years! Thanks OKCupid!

I'm smart, funny, easy-going, and in general a pretty happy person. I love to laugh and have fun and tell stories and make other people laugh. But I've also got a serious side, and could talk for hours about a wide range of topics great and small. Art, literature, philosophy, politics, science, the future, the past, current affairs, whatever. As long as we're not talking about the latest exploits of the Kardashians, I'll have an opinion and something interesting to say. I consider myself to be a good, honest, and honorable man. I'm not religious and I don't believe in God (at least not in any traditional sense), but I've still drawn a lot of my life philosophy from religious sources, including Buddhist teachings on karma and meditation and all that commie/hippie stuff Jesus was always talking about. That being said, I try to be open minded and respectful whenever possible unless faced with inexcusable levels of ignorance, hypocrisy, or bigotry. And no, I'm not one of those people who considers voting for Trump inexcusably bigoted. Those people need to take a deep breath.
What I’m doing with my life

I moved up here from St. Louis in 2015 to take care of my 93 year old grandfather. I've worked in the elder care field at pretty much every level, so it was something I was uniquely qualified to do and my family hired me.

My wife works at a local farm doing community supported agriculture, which she loves! She typically comes home covered in dirt with a big smile on her face!
I’m really good at
Listening, making people laugh, taking care of others, communicating openly and honestly, expressing my views/opinions, learning new things, trying new things, being on time, cooking, writing, reading, and not sweating the small stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that my beard is currently approaching full Taliban.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Brothers Karamazov, Anna Karenina, The Stand, City of Thieves, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Dark Tower, The Corrections, The Master and Margarita, A Tale of Two Cities, Watership Down, Matterhorn, Native Son, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, To Kill a Mockingbird, One Hundred Years of Solitude, the Game of Thrones series, 1984, Animal Farm and many others I'm sure I'm forgetting.

Movies: The Big Lebowski, The Godfather I and II, Fargo, There's Something About Mary, Goodfellas, The Shawshank Redemption, Star Wars, The Princess Bride, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Pulp Fiction, Ghostbusters, Dumb and Dumber, and pretty much anything involving zombies.

TV: Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, The Wire, The Simpsons, Futurama, South Park, Survivor, Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, Arrested Development, The Shield, The Big Bang Theory.

Music: Classic rock mostly, with some oldies, pop, and rap thrown in for good measure. CCR, Tom Petty, The Stones, and Steve Miller are a few personal favorites.

Food: Whatever my fiancé is cooking, because it will be awesome. I'm also especially proud of my pecan pie, cornbread, chili, meatballs, pecan-smoked BBQ ribs, and any of my homemade soups and sauces.
Six things I could never do without
Good friends, good food, good stories, laughter, new experiences, and the love of my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything and everything. I've been told on several occasions that I think too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with my grandfather, unfortunately. My weekend doesn't begin until Saturday morning.

However! My fiancé and I enjoy going to the beach, discovering new places and having new experiences, divey kind of bars, and just relaxing and enjoying ourselves with good friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Whenever I look at a new profile, I look at the books section first. And I may or may not make snap judgements about the kind of person you are based on that information. I apologize in advance.
You should message me if
You're good people looking for good friends.

You have books I can borrow. The answer to your next question is yes.

You have something interesting to say. Anger me. Shock me. Offend me. Just please don't bore me.

You think George R.R. Martin needs to write much, much faster.

You want to get into a circular, pointless debate about deeply held philosophical, spiritual, political, social, cultural, and moral beliefs that ultimately solves nothing.

You want to play RISK. Because it's awesome.

You want to play a different board game and drink and laugh and tell stories until the wee hours. Because that's just a good time.

You need and/or have tips on beard maintenance.

You need someone to care for an aging relative or know someone looking to purchase a ridiculously expensive purebred Bichon Frise puppy. I can totally hook you up.
