I'm a warm, caring, intelligent man with a good sense of humor and a geeky bent. I own my own business and have more than my fair share of drive and ambition. I'm enjoying my life, and I'm looking forward to finding someone special to share it with.
P.S. if you are using Quickmatch please message me directly. I'm not a premium member, and I can't see who "Likes" me!
In my spare time I'm reading my ever-expanding library, dabbling with my own creative projects and hanging with my friends. In my circle the art of conversation is not lost, and I'm thankful for that every day.
I'm also learning how to cook something more substantial than mac and cheese and finally getting back into an exercise regimen. Bringing life together for myself, and enjoying it thoroughly!
Unfortunately, my work schedule is a little strange at times (it's essentially a second shift job, except when it's not) so I'm on here to see if I can't find the right girl!
I'm more than a little obsessed with books and my library is filled with mostly sci-fi/fantasy and history, although I own all kinds of literature. My favorite authors include Jim Butcher, David Weber, David Eddings, Brian Jacques and David Gemmell.
P.S. When I say "library," I mean exactly that. I filled a spare bedroom with 4,000+ volumes and threw in a couple of comfy chairs. It's amazing in there!
I love music, and according to Spotify I spent over 53,000 minutes streaming their service last year. Most of my favorite tunes are from the punk and pop genres, but there are plenty of exceptions. My latest obsession has been the albums to the musicals Daddy Long Legs and Hamilton, but it'll probably change again next week. I listen to a LOT of music!
My favorite movies of all time (in no particular order) are:
1. Holiday (Cary Grant/Katherine Hepburn)
2. The Lion in Winter (Patrick Stewart/Glenn Close)
3. The Man Who Came To Dinner (Nathan Lane)
4. The Man From Earth (David Lee Smith).
A Dog's Breakfast (David Hewlett), Fitzwilly (Dick Van Dyke) and Suburban Knights (Nostalgia Critic/Doug Walker) are all close runners up!
I binge-watch Netflix when I find a good show, but it's not what you'd call a burning passion.
I also love theater and attend performances whenever I can. My hope is that I'll find someone to share my theatrical addiction with!
2. My friends
3. My job
4. My library and music collection
6. Time to enjoy all of my little hobbies and projects
Seriously, though, I think the most private thing I am willing to admit is that I am, in the words of David Gemmell, "a romantic by inclination, a cynic by experience." I believe in love, truth, honesty, loyalty and joy. However, I've learned to be practical, too, because life does not always play fair.
Or if you have a book recommendation, or a song I should check out, or a random fact I should know. Seriously, I collect random trivia like some people collect stamps, so share what you know!
