My self-summary
I'm never sure how what to put into the essay portion. I use a mix of self-deprecating humor, absurdism, pop culture references, & random facts in daily conversation. But I find that doesn't translate well to print, especially on a dating site.
So I'll just lay it out simply without anecdotes or navel gazing ramblings.

I am a single dad with a healthy, functional relationship with my child & her mother.

I enjoy hiking, urbexing, reading, movies & tele, a healthy debate, photography is a new found passion of mine, & I like to go out on occasion. I also love to cook, trying to expand my culinary horizons.

I'm not a vegan or religious, but I am a social democrat in the vain of the Scandinavian model.
What I’m doing with my life
I work during the day but am usually reachable if needed. Then afterwork its home to the kiddo & the dog to chill out.

I use my days off to either run errands or go off & take photos of graffiti, urban abandonments, or nature.

I'm trying to take more time for myself away from work & my duties as a dad, get a little me time in. It's hard because I've been a workaholic all of my life & a primary caregiver for going on 11 years, so, it is hard to disconnect.
I’m really good at
This portion always seems like arrogance to me. I'm not a boastful person. But if you insist OkCupid....

I've got a really good memory for facts but not dates.

I can cook pretty well, nothing fancy, but I'd like to try learning.

I'm organized & clean, most of time.

I'm good at making people laugh & take pride in it, but don't have the desire to be a stand up.
The first things people usually notice about me
I get told I look like John Lennon alot.
I'm also a ginger.
My sideburns too.

What do they notice about my personality?
Sarcasm, dry wit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: All of Christopher Moore's books. I recently discovered Jonathan Tropper & I relate so much to his work. Richard Russo. Max Brooks opened my eyes. Bill Bryson made me want to travel again. Steven King is a great documentarian of the last 30 years of American history and culture. I also have the 1st edition hardbacks of the Hannibal Lecter Quadrilogy. Then there is my love affair with Neil Gaiman....

Movies: Anything with Simon Pegg, Zombies, or guys in masks killing people. But I also love indie movies, like Squid & the Whale, most of Wes Andersen's movies, and I like old Universal horror movies too. American Beauty, Brokedown Palace, Casablanca, Don't Tell Mom the Babysitters Dead, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Sun, Four Rooms, Gods & Monsters, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle and Escape for Gitmo, Interview with a Vampire, Jack, Kentucky Fried Movie, Lost Highway, Marie Antoinette, Night of the Living Dead and the Romero sanctioned sequels, Opera, Playing by Heart, Queen of the Damned, Rosemary's Baby, The Station Agent, Thirteen, Uncle Buck, The Virgin Suicides, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, Young Frankenstein, Zombie...

Music: Placebo, MC Frontalot, & lyrics that make me think/laugh. I don't dig country at all. Adam WarrockAir, Amon Tobin, Andrew Bird, Art Brut, the Avenue Q Soundtrack, Badly Drawn Boy, Beck, Belle & Sebastian, Bush, Cake, The Clientele, Damien Rice, Dropkick Murphys, The Eels, Elliott Smith, Eluvium, Garbage, Jay and Silent Bob Soundtrack, Journey, Jem, MC Chris, MC Front-a-Lot, MC Hawking, Muse, Pinback, Placebo, Postal Service, Queen, Radiohead, REM, Rufus Wainwright, Sia, Skankin' Pickle, Stephen Lynch, The Streets, Tom Waits, Umbrella, Velvet Goldmine Soundtrack, Within Temptation, Yo La Tango, Zero 7....

Television: CSI, House, Law & Order: SVU, Criminal Minds, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Good Eats, shows where I learn about Hitler's digestive track, dinosaurs, Romans, Irish caverns, and animals eating each other.....
And a hell of a lot more because I watch whatever is on even just as background noise.

Food: I am an omnivore. Man evolved to eat dairy, meat, grain, and vegetables. I don't care if you are a vegetarian just don't judge me for my natural desire to eat what I like. I'm also a bit of a foodie -- I like to cook, eat out, and experiment.
Six things I could never do without
cardigan sweaters & vests
British sitcoms
a good hat
books, again
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the meaning of life, sex, the past, books, nothing at all, robots, zombies, & just weird things, like do the security guards at art museums appreciate the beauty they are surrounded by every day? I think a lot. I think too much. I over analyze just about everything and it tends to make me either anxious or cynical.
On a typical Friday night I am
I really couldn't say. Each day presents something new, so, it would be presumptive for me to say what is typical...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am really shy about initial shows of affection like holding hands or the first kiss. But once that hurdle is passed nothing is off the table.
