First off, because this is Utah, and this is very important to me, I do not believe in god. I'm an Atheist, I believe in common sense, logic, reason, and the scientific way of thinking. I will not bother you about my beliefs, and I usually keep it to myself unless asked. I believe religion should be a personal experience and kept strictly to one's self. I have many religious friends, this does not bother me, I can respect personal lifestyle choices. I'm also a STRONG believer that religion should stay out of schools and politics.
Just don't try to force it upon me, that's all I ask.
My mannerism is more old fashioned (mostly), I know how to treat a lady, and I can cook you some wicked pasta.
I'm a bit quiet and enjoy simple things like watching the snow fall, listen to the rain, a nice sunset, or the wind in the trees. I love the smell of pine trees and enjoy the sound of nature when I'm out in the woods.
I would rather have a few close friends than may acquiescence's, I enjoy smaller groups when doing activities, it's more personal that way.
I find it sad that people often judge or exclude based on age, life is short and this should not influence making new friends. You can have fun, or be grumpy old fart no matter how old you are. Honestly I find the hypocrisy that is online dating a sad thing, it's rare to find good honest people.
I'd love a fly fishing companion, it get's lonely out on fishing trips by myself.
Just a FYI... I can't stand piercings in places other than the ears. It's a HUGE turn off for me! Not big into tattoos either, but they don't bug me as much.
I was staff with Anime Banzai for 10 years, retired from it this year.
Other than that I like select Anime, Film Noir, Foreign Films and most films in the Criterion Collection.

I'm a BIG music nut, I played a clarinet for 7 years and have gained a respect for music. I'm not a big fan of manufactured bands created by big studios, or the crazies found in the top US charts.

I love good food, and enjoy cooking it. I crave flavor, spice, complexity, and enjoy trying new restaurants with friends.

I can visualize a movie in my mind, mentally press play and watch the movie... this is how I get to sleep... sometimes....
So, if you want to hang out with a flirty geeky couple and have fun doing any of the following: play cards, play video games, board games, work on cosplay, go fishing, skiing, camping, hiking, scuba diving, experiment with cooking, try new beer/wine, geek about stuff, watch movies/anime, discover new music, we are also up for trying new things.
My wife has a 12 yr old son from another relationship, so if you have kids, they can play. If kids are not your thing, we usually plan "adult time" for games and such.
Please message me if you have questions.....
