My self-summary
Houston born, TN grown; then north of the Mason Dixon line ever since college at Ohio U (not Ohio St.). Other than the aforementioned, have lived a long stint in Chicago, and shorter stints in Buffalo and Pittsburgh.

I have no expectations or necessary outcomes from this. If I could meet someone fun, lighthearted, witty to experience the area with, that'd be aces with me.

Me: Witty/sarcastic; like to have witty banter with others. Real, honest/straightforward, blunt. Pretty smart. Love sports, play sports. Fun-loving. Love concerts. Appreciate randomness & spontaneity. Love travel, but I'm not gonna list it all or brag about it on this profile. Love beer...and whiskey. Play guitar, but been too undisciplined with my schedule lately. Grr.

Let's be real, this online thing masquerades as a method to find "perfect matches" based on a "dating CV" of sorts, like a job app. If this is your take, if you look at the profile as such and expect and assess first dates for instant levels of "match," whereby if it's not a magical Cinderella date, then it's a quick no-go, it might not be a fit. Just saying, that's not reality, so we can spare each other's time. Anyway, I've noticed this whole "dating resume" perception messes with people's expectations. Though it shouldn't, since most people should know the above isn't really the case, and it comes down to meeting up, seeing how things go/progress, and taking it a day at a time. Duh! So, the rest of this profile may be first meet-up material, so feel free to read on, skip to the bottom, or just drop me a line with/without a number and maybe we can plan to meet up.

Cheers!
What I’m doing with my life
Was working at the privilege of serving those whose health is compromised...sometimes with a scalpel. Now reclaiming my life.
I’m really good at
...thinking about random stuff...like maybe how I wish I were in the Namib desert when I'm watching some rarely broadcast intelligent TV on NatGeoHD, and/or where I want to go. Getting too into a sports game whilst watching on TV. Kissing, so I'm told. Witty banter. Spontaneity. Having a high batting avg. in 12" softball (maybe I'll get in a league sometime this decade) . Trying new beers.
The first things people usually notice about me
You tell me...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Please refer to my bookshelf.

Flicks: most 80's flicks; Blues Brothers; Animal House; Dumb & Dumber; History of the World Part 1, or really most anything Mel Brooks (Spaceballs, etc); Jaws; Star Wars; Indiana Jones; Top Gun; Life of Brian; Airplane, etc. This list is not all-inclusive.

TV: Mostly drivel nowadays. Largely sports. South Park. Seinfeld is the best sitcom in history. Entourage was badass. The educational channels. Classics: Wonder Years, Family Ties, Cheers, some of the real oldies, SNL up until ~early 2000's, and ALF to name a few.

Tunes: I have some of most all major genres in my 200+ album collection. However, no country or super emo stuff. Jack Johnson not emo, though. No pansy rock (thanks for starting that fad Third Eye Blind and Matchbox 20). No boy band, new pop, or 'Call Me Maybe'-type stuff.

Grub: everything not named asparagus or brussel sprouts. Special mention for: Southern cooking, good ketchup-based (ie, TN-style) BBQ, sweet tea (real sweet tea). Beer, whiskey, beer.
The six things I could never do without
Most of my interests are outlined in other areas. Pass...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why my profile is so long if I'm a pretty simple dude. Doh! I digress...

Places I'd like to go and things I'd like to do if given the chance. Sports. College football Saturday. Food. Women (c'mon, y'all get some props! You know we'd be lying if we said we didn't). Going back to S. Africa, but instead of Great White cage diving in Mossel Bay with ~14ft juveniles, going to Gansbaai to get in with the larger adults! Concerts. Food. Beer. What's next?
On a typical Friday night I am
...varies. I try not to get mired in having a typical anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For me to know and you to find out. : )
You should message me if
-You're not into playing games. I said I was real & straightforward, right? Ha. Or don't have the aforementioned silly expectations from online dating as a method.

-The following played fads are not a routine part of your wardrobe/worn for the sake of "hipness" points:
~larger-than-face Jackie O sunglasses, especially worn indoors, underground/subway, at night, or when it's cloudy
~Toms (I realize this excludes 35% of women in SF)
~Uggz
~conspicuously and needlessly thick, loud, or "funky" glasses, especially those that don't have actual Rx lenses in them
~black tights/leggings every day including on non-workout days (Damn, this excludes 70%). Now I'm down to -5% of SF, though with back-of-the-napkin calculation factoring cross-over wearers of multiple of above, this leaves maybe 10-20% of SF..."So, you're telling me there's a chance!"
NB: list subject to change.

-You are not a huge Ohio St. fan.

NB: I am pretty independent and secure in myself, so if you're the co-dependent type, & want a 5 night/wk stay-in movie/reality TV cuddler, I'm probably not your man. I'm more into independent women who feel secure in their own as well. Just being honest. Just saying.

We'd probably mesh & you should message me if you fancy yourself as:
-fun
-fit
-funny/good sense of humor/witty
-adventurous, active
-enjoy sports to some extent
-lighthearted
-spontaneous, or amenable to it

Randomness I thought I'd add in for shits and giggles:
You "had me at hello" if one or more of the below:
-you are brunette with long hair and blue, hazel, or green eyes; honorable mention to longish hair in general, which is solid.
-you have a British or S. African accent; honorable mention to European accented English.
-or a genteel Southern accent; honorable mention to New York and Boston accents, which are solid, as is Canadian (I mean, i wouldn't say I have Maple Fever, but there's something cute about girls saying hoose and aboot).

Be talking to ya!
