My self-summary
Typical OKCupid middle-aged guy. Not emotionally ready for relationships, but understands and values the concept.

I'll go on a few dates and then back off. Even if I like you because the concept of developing complex emotional feelings for someone is scary and not something I'm ready for.

But goddamn if the hunt isn't fun. It's like a drug.

Regardless, I would be very cautious messaging me.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in logistics for a local wine distributor. I've worked for the vast majority of my adult life in logistics, and find that I'm very good at it. My ability to focus on time and movement within the segment has been very good for me.

...but that focus on time is also a bit of a curse outside of the warehouse. I'm very time focused. Almost obsessively so. I live by the mantra "five minutes early is ten minutes late". I get super annoyed by other people that don't look at time like I do. And honestly, that is almost everyone else. I recognize this is a personal weakness but at this point I'm pretty much "fuck it". It pays the real bills.
I’m really good at
Moving stuff from A to B. I also think I'm a pretty good father (I have three kids, one out of the house and the other teens).

I'm also very good at walking/hiking. I can (and do) walk for miles at a time. If you want to go for a walk with me I want to throw on a backpack with snacks and water and get some miles in.
The first things people usually notice about me
I suppose whatever facial hair configuration I have going on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Lord Of The Rings. In the interest of those that love this book I've read it hundreds and hundreds of times. That is not joke. As soon as I finish it I start over. Every single day. I love the concept of Middle Earth. That being said I don't do any real world "fan" stuff about it. I don't dress up like a Hobbit or play games based on the books. I just read them. Over and over and over. It should be noted I will read whatever the new Bill Bryson book is.

Movies: Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Exit Through the Gift Shop, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Birdy, The Matrix, The Last Starfighter, Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, The Usual Suspects, Memento, The Sixth Sense, Signs, Fearless.

TV Shows: I'm a cable cutter, so it's all about streaming to me. Right now I'm into GoT, Silicon Valley, Veep, and Big Brother.

Music: Social Distortion, The White Stripes, Feist, Beck, Beastie Boys, Beth Orton, Built To Spill, Eisley, Grant Lee Phillips, Sufjan Stevens, New Order, Matisyahu, Ministry, Rilo Kiley, Simple Kid, Soul Coughing, Tegan And Sara, The Black Keys, The Greenhornes, The Raconteurs, Stone Roses, The Weakerthans, Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo., The Xx
The six things I could never do without
My kids
Beer (hops please)
Listening to music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I keep this profile up. I'm not at all successful at dating. I really value my alone time and can be pretty selfish about it.

But like I said above, it's hard for me to not at least try. It's addicting to me to interact with people and find out the mutual interests we have. The flirting and the fun. But I'll fuck it up, I assure you. Seriously, I would not date me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either with my kids or alone. It's typically a decompression night for me. When I am social it's typically Saturday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to think out loud and am not a very private person. But's who I am.
You should message me if
You shouldn't. You'll regret it.

I almost never send a message first unless something really interesting in your profile interest me. I actually do read profiles.

If you've gotten this far I have one question...why?
