My self-summary
THEY ALL LAUGHED WHEN I SAID I COULD FIND LOVE ON OKCUPID! I scanned profile after profile with no response, until after many years of searching, I discovered the secret of DATING SUPERTECHNOLOGY! Now, the ones who turned me down are LITERALLY BREAKING DOWN THE DOOR! READ ON TO LEARN THESE FORBIDDEN SECRETS!
What I’m doing with my life
I grew up in Pennsylvania. Then I lived in Seattle for a long time. Took a wrong turn and ended up in the Chicagoland area. I'm a natural health care practitioner, educator, writer, sometimes artist. I volunteer, meditate, stay fit and eat right.
The first things people usually notice about me
I generate a sense of excitement by TYPING IN ALL CAPS!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
"I love everything from dive bars to the opera!" No, seriously, I hate the opera, corporate chains, and overpriced foodie destinations. I like dive bars, independent coffee houses, and great food hidden in unassuming strip malls. I like movies that have plots, dialogue, and minimal to no CGI. Things that slow down your brainwaves and explore relationships and real life not the earth exploding yet again. Black and white, film noir, femmes fatale, antiheros not superheros.

I read a ton and across a broad spectrum. Reading is eating and writing is breathing.

Music I love a lot of music mostly I'm tuned into KEXP if that gives you an idea. I also love podcasts and spoken word. Joe Frank is god.

Do we really need to like all the same stuff? I'm willing to check out what you're interested in and have a new experience and hopefully you feel the same way.
The six things I could never do without
Do you really care what consumer items I think I'm entitled to? I didn't think so! Now that I think about it, this is kind of a reactionary answer. Although probably true. But OK, I really value art, or maybe I should say having an artistic perspective. Or a spiritual perspective. Or intellectual. Maybe just a well-developed and engaging point of view. Ok that's not a "thing" but it's something that makes things interesting and I can't really live without it and if you're like me you can't either!

Thinking about it even more, I have to say that we really are living a golden age in terms of the types of food that are available to us, and I really have to get down on my knees and thank the baby Jesus everyday for that!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What are the qualities that make a man mature and masculine, but still engender a youthful perspective. (Some ideas: being able to take responsibility, being able to take a joke, being able to get out of the comfort zone without going into the stupid risk taking zone). Permaculture, art, psychonautics, old music, comix, zines, literature, and other pretentious and unpopular ideas.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm also going to be honest here, I'm not so much of a late night person anymore. Sunday Funday is a different story though. I dig waking up, working out, getting coffee, having a few cocktails at brunch, and 420 in various permutations and combinations.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
(Nearly) every woman's profile on here emphasizes "no FWB's!" Yet I haven't had any problem with finding this situation. I would genuinely like to find someone to be a partner in life.
