My self-summary
I think most people decide if they're interested in an online profile after looking at the picture. I think I look better in person, but I guess you'll have to decide for yourself. I'm 6'2", my weight stays somewhere around $1.85 w/out trying, I'm just lucky that way. :-) A Renaissance Man, my interests are many and diverse. I have more interests than I have time and money to pursue. But just to give you an idea, I like playing/seeing live music, traveling, scuba diving, floating a river, hanging out at a lake or at the beach, horseback riding, riding my motorcycle, hiking, camping, most things artsy, NPR, a cool museum, the history channel (not so much anymore, they've gone kinda cheezy on me), frisbee, volleyball, basketball, football, shiner bock, good food, frozen margaritas, cape cods, giving/getting a massage with the woman who makes know, some more shiner bock, and green extra gum..........just to give you an idea. :)

I'm generally an introvert, except when I'm not. I'm not "divorced", I'm single. (It's a frame of mind thing) I've been through the post divorce winter of discontent. If you're recently divorced, I generally subscribe to the idea that "you need that year" though it's a guideline, not a rule. I'm emotionally intact. I actually get along well with my son's mother. We are both active participants in our son's life but just to be clear, we've turned the page. One of the questions I answered was about not talking to an ex if asked not to - not an option here. My ex is my son's mother, she's a nice person besides. If you are threatened by that then let's not waste each others' time. I'm a parent first, my child is my first priority. He's with me every other week more or less. Can you deal with that? Being a dad has made me realign my priorities, but I've still got my wild side. I'm a self-confessed smartass. I'm quick-witted and like that trait in others in a fun way, if you can take it as good as you give it. I'm incorrigible, but I'm not mean. Meanness is a trait I don't put up with. My friends tell me I'm smart, funny, crazy (in a fun way), and an all around cool guy to hang out with. I'm basically a monogomous, affectionate man. The poly thing is an intriguing idea but I'm not convinced. I am ok with responsibly enjoying another's companionship with no long term or binding expectations, key word being responsibly - no one being manipulated (honesty people) or being put at risk. My experience is such things always have a shelf life.
If we've had "the talk" and we're exclusive then that's it. If exclusivity has been mutually invoked I'm utterly loyal. I love together time but I'm not possessive or smothering (I really don't like overly clingy/dependent), girls night out is fine by me, have fun and be safe, I'll talk to you tomorrow.

Based on profiles I've viewed lately "no drama" seems to be the cliche phrase de jour. I haven't yet seen any profiles that say "high drama preferred" (though some certainly imply it). Our idiosyncrasies are often what make us interesting. My take on it is that everybody's got some luggage. As long as it fits in the space under your seat we'll probably do just fine. One thing - I pretty much have a zero tolerance policy for bullshit. Specifically posers, pretenders, disingenuous people. Ain't nobody got time for dat! I don't like deception/manipulation. At its best it's high school, at its worst it's psychopathic. I am utterly honest. I don't mean that to say brutally honest, I'm just completely honest. Most people don't seem to be capable of being completely honest. Sad but in my experience true. I'm empathetic, sensitive, considerate but I'm no pushover. On the contrary, I'm opinionated when informed and a quick study when I'm not. I'm smart, concerned, strong, vulnerable, able to live in the moment, and if we click I'll rock your world. I'm in no rush, I'm perfectly capable of being happy on my own but I'm ready to meet someone who's ready to meet someone, a friend, a lover, someone with whom I'm compatible in all the "ally's" (intellectually, emotionally, sexually, spiritually).

Let's get together sometime....
What I’m doing with my life
I'm living it.
I’m really good at
Taking care of my son. I'm a decent musician. I'm pretty good at my job (Behavioral/mental health services)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm guessing on this one, no one has ever come out and said "the first things I noticed about you were..."

I'm friendly, sociable (read chatty), can operate in just about any situation. I come off as a bit of a nerd 'cause I have a pretty good vocabulary and I use it. My southern accent becomes more apparent when I've had a couple of beverages, tends to throw people off a bit when coupled with my diction.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I haven't read for pleasure in years. I've learned to play a lot of songs though. I'm sure I've forgotten quite a few, too.

Movies- too many to list but here goes:
Little Big Man, Jeramiah Johnson, The Band Of Brothers series, the new Battlestar Galactica series, As Good As It Gets, Good Will Hunting, The Best Years Of Our Lives, Platoon, Ghost, Forrest Gump, Magnolia, A Fish Called Wanda, drama, comedies, any of the good sci-fi genre, well made war movies, even documentaries. Not a big fan of the slasher type movies, they're just dumb.

Music - I'm really all over the map. Listing my music preferences would be more difficult than listing movie preferences (I'll be honest, I didn't put a lot of efffort in my movies list). I'll just list some stuff I've listened to recently - The Beatles, Bob Schneider, Aimee Mann, The Who, Big Head Todd and The Monsters, Toad The Wet Sprocket, Michael Penn, Grupo Phantasma, The Asylum Street Spankers, Ian Moore, The Band Of Heathens, Rush, Col. Bruce Hampton and The Aquarium Rescue Unit, Bela Fleck, Nick Drake, Colin Hay...... and a few others....

I gots to watch mah stories....The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, Justified are (update, were) in rotation, I think Louie is brilliant and funny, I finished Breaking Bad (via Netflix), what a great series. Looking for a new series...
Six things I could never do without
I think this section is somewhat simplistic, but I'll play along...
My son
Music (art in general-movies, graphic, performing art)
Things that stimulate the mind
The great outdoors
Good food and drink
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Stuff...mostly everything. I'm very thinky. But just right off the top of my head....

What I would do if I won the lotto.

Sometimes it's hard to be rightous.

Shit like this, one of the greatest mysteries ever....finally solved!
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking care of my son, hangin' at home, playing cards with buddies, seeing a band.
Seems like lately I've been on OKCupid.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I have an online dating site profile. I'm very open, a straight question will get you a straight answer.

If we click I'll tell you....maybe.....probably ;-)
You should message me if
you feel like it....

My "looking for" info is general, if anything I've presented here resonates with you feel free to say Hi even if you aren't in those parameters.
The two of us
