I'm your friendly neighborhood single successful guy, looking to find someone to share life and its adventures.
I'm very happy to be an ex-lawyer. It wasn't for me, but helped me acquire skills that help me in my career now.
I'm renovating my house, so if you're good with interior design, I'm not averse to opinions on my choices.
I'm looking for someone interested in having a family eventually. Though I'm not elitist I tend to be attracted to bright and educated women.
I'm a geek/nerd (as you can probably guess if you reach the section about my favorites).
I am a recent first time homeowner. I am fixing up said home. It finally seems like I'm making progress
Otherwise, I'm reading, playing board games with friends, playing video games with friends, swimming or watching TV. Sometimes I go out and do stuff too, like go to comedy clubs. Sometimes I also have people over for bbqs and the like.
I'm good at taking jokes over the line of appropriateness... Though usually only around people who know me.
*Note - I used to be really good at resisting the urge to adopt a pup, this is fading fast.
I'm good at arguing but I don't particularly like to.
Books: "Good Omens" is probably my favorite book. Anything by Gaiman, Vonnegut, Steven Brust, William Gibson, Lois McMaster Bujold or Brandon Sanderson. I'm all over the place, but mostly read fiction.
Recent good reads:
The Dresden Files (the whole series... I got on a bit of a roll there);
The Bands of Mourning;
Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen;
Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era;
Between the World and Me
Movies: Comedies are generally my favorites, but A Few Good Men, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Big Fish, Tombstone, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Star Wars are some faves.
TV (All time): Coupling (UK), Firefly, Pushing Daisies, The Simpsons, BSG (remake), West Wing; (Whedon, Fuller, Sorkin)
Music: I'll listen to just about anything, but Social Distortion, Weezer, Bad Religion, Rise Against, Jamiroquai, and Me First & The Gimme Gimmes are some that I can listen to at just about any time.
Food: Spicy tuna rolls, NY strip steak. I like to try new things, though I did not try (nor did I come across, actually) the rancid shark meat on my trip to Iceland. I love cooking/grilling, and my new kitchen (and back yard + grill) have made this a lot easier.
I generally lean towards geeky/nerdy stuff, but have a pretty wide range of interests.
