My self-summary
Re-launching onto the dating fray can be intimidating, but I'm actually pretty excited to meet some new people, regardless where it goes. I'm bright, funny, compassionate, interminably curious. I've done a lot of things, lived here and there around the country. Hopefully learned some things about life and people.

I like being active, involved, but I can also enjoy being a couch/TV slug. I play guitar, sing, cook, read, go to the gym, etc; though I don't spend enough time doing any of them. Love movies, ideas. A bit of a history buff. Thinking about camping lately, for some reason.

I've loved and lived with several women in my life, and we're (mostly) still great friends. You can ask them. Really, it's OK. In fact, I'd like to be able to tell them "Yes!" the next time they ask if I'm seeing someone.

I love my family, and my friends. Unequivocally. Hopefully; you, too.
What I’m doing with my life
Working quite a bit. I recently moved to the Monterey Peninsula, so doing some exploring, hoping to meet some new people. I like to ride my bike, plunk around on my guitar. Backgammon, cards, chess. Talk with family & friends on the phone. Reading, studying for a couple of exams. Looking for you, now.
I’m really good at
My job. Cooking. Being a friend. Telling jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Jeez. hmm.. You might need to help me with this one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Faulkner, Vonnegut, Steinbeck, O'Connor. Hawthorne even. The poetry of Erik Lemke. Looking for new writers. I like non-fiction, esp. as relates to history, archaeology, etc.
Movies: Anything well-made. Not into horror, most sci-fi; martialarts/war. I can enjoy chick flicks if they're not too vapid; or maudlin.
Music: Whatever is good. Not excited by most hip-hop, metal. Listening to more indie/folk/acoustic/jazzy/bluegrass stuff these days, if that makes any sense.
Food: I'm a former chef, so I'm able to cook things I like, which is just about everything. I love cooking for people.
Six things I could never do without
My sense of humor.
My curiosity.
Friends and family.
Good food.
Sunshine, at least occasionally.
Circumventing the occasional rule.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. I'd like to get better at thinking about nothing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking forward to the weekend. Scanning the local events calendar. Calling people far away.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Depends... what are you most curious about?
You should message me if
You want to.
The two of us
