I have blue collar roots that have branched out into more intellectual pursuits. I’m grounded in the golden rule and reaching for the sun with creativity, versatility, and an open mind. The products I design are seeds that I offer the world. I discriminate against few activities or points of view… discovery is important. I'm well traveled, preferring the path less beaten. I'm open, honest, and not afraid to speak my mind... and usually do. I don’t take unreasonable risks, although my definition of unreasonable is more liberal than most. I’m analytical, which can be misconstrued as arrogance, but it's just a Scandinavian thing. I’m objective and can admit when I’m wrong… untrue, I’m actually subjective and stubborn. ;~ ) The careful listener will catch my wit, which is on the dry side and is often laced with deeper meaning. I’d much rather show and learn by doing rather than dictate a laundry list of traits, attributes, and interests.
Ultimately, I'd like to find someone I feel like I've always known. Someone who wants to know me and accepts me for who I truly am. Someone who appreciates the special place I've reserved for her in my life. Someone who I'd rather not live without. And most importantly, someone who doesn't burp too much. That being said, life, and love, is a journey, not a destination and I intend to enjoy everyone who crosses my path... and I mean that in the broadest sense.

~ You can't learn anything if you already know it all.
~ Chemistry is a recipe written with no ink... you know it's right when you taste it.
~ There are two sides to every fried egg... and each happens to be nourishing. I prefer mine over easy. It's ok if they're a little crispy here and there, but never burnt or overdone. A gushing yoke is a very good thing.

Music: Pretty much anything except most Rap or Country. I'm not so fond of Polka or show tunes either, but every genera has it place and merits. My collection is eclectic.
Food: I'm an omnivore. Spicy and ethnic are tasty... and I have regular cravings for sushi or a good burger... and an IPA.

I once thought about the paradox: Can god create a boulder he can't lift? I was really losing sleep over it. One day... while buttering my toast, the answer hit me... the epiphany was glorious. God doesn't exist. I lose sleep over more important things now.
I don't identify as being kinky... I'm not vanilla either. I'm an explorer; you should be too, or at least be willing to be my world.
When crafting a message I feel like I'm approaching a woman at a bar. I envision all the drinks and empty glasses piled around her and know more are being offered. My drink, as good as it may be, is just one of many. It makes me feel cheap and common... like dating is a competition, and I'm not and it's not. As a consequence, even though I'm not shy and there are many desirable women here, I don't send out many messages.
Honestly, the only reason I'm on OKC is for motivation to hose out the man-cave. That strategy hasn't worked as well as I had hoped... the dust is on the verge of becoming a tripping hazard.
~ you're on the kinky side of vanilla.
~ you're tired of the usual posturing.
~ you can handle a guy who's 6'4" 205lbs.
~ you're not afraid of, and prefer, honesty.
~ you're artsy, open minded, and free spirited.
~ you don't allow society to dictate your actions.
~ you're feisty and can take as good as you give.
~ you're local to San Francisco... within 5-10 miles.
~ you're unconventional, but don't need to broadcast it.
~ we're at least a 80% match. And yes, I read answers.
~ you like full-length mirrors, but not obsessed with them.
~ you see the value in taking risks... and aren't afraid too.
~ you have something interesting or clever to say... please.
~ you're sex positive and understand that that has nothing to do with promiscuity.
~ you're attractive and fit with access to accurate images that clearly reveal your frame. I'm not looking for perfection, but we should appear to be a good fit.
I poke around here on occasion, but mainly just respond to messages. I'm not shy, but sending out messages is largely a crap shoot. I'd rather save the time and effort for someone who wants it... so you should contact me if you're interested. I'm selective and not interested in random hook ups. I'm here for face to face interaction not endless message strings... not that that can't be enjoyable. I reply to everyone who takes the time and effort to contact me. I gauge your interest by the effort you put into your messages... just as you would expect from me... "Hi" or a thoughtless one liner will get a similar response. I'm not a leg humper so don't be leery about replying if I do happen to send some words your way and you're not interested... I'm a big boy. We should be considerate humans, right? I believe in the golden rule and karma. Besides, it's the right thing to do.
May you find and live your desires... enjoy!
