My self-summary
I'm DIFFERENT. If you are not ok with different, I'm not the one for you.

I engage in direct, grown up communication and prefer to meet right away to gauge real life chemistry. Same should go for you.

I'm intelligent, affectionate, loyal, tough--and tender--earthy but sophisticated. My passions are editing quality motion pictures and watching my 10 yr old son grow up.

I am fit and sensual. This doesn't make me a player (I'm monogamous not poly.)

LIKES: Children, quality movies/tv, kissing, whole organic food, baseball/basketball, underdogs, Charlie Hebdo, hiking in redwoods, water, directness, wit, joy, tomboys, curls and grey, deep divers, sass, trampoline-ing, sarcasm, iconoclastic thinkers, affection, those who have one's back, mavericks, fine craftsmanship, women with meat on their bones, great books, order, bucking at propriety, singers/dancers, routine, big hearts, making love, scatological humor, minimalism, random kindness, women with strong male energy, egalitarian relationships, good Samaritans, women with husky voices, self-reliance, old folks who've lived, unique voices/accents, and MORE!

DISLIKES: Political Correctness, harming the young, pretension, cravenly commercial media, marketing (except with a basket), religion, phonies, poor quality goods, rackets (legal and illegal), spiritual materialism, plastic bags, travel junkies, food with a million ingredients, comic book movies/tv, the notion of fashion, identity politics, party thinking, propriety, green-washing marketing, the increasing leverage of the 1%, encouraging panhandling by giving change, knives in the back, pretension, indirectness, urban folks with multiple big dogs, PC "thinkers", skin color bias and--I promise!--not too many MORE!

THOSE WHO SHOULD PROBABLY SKIP ME:
Those who spend more money on clothes or travel than on food. The religious and the excessively conventional. Those not willing (or able) to be near Lake Merritt often (I'm a bicycle and Lyft traveler.) Those who would insist on bringing a pet on a first date. Those who are dog-centric, especially with big dogs (cats are ok).

ASTROLOGY:
I am proud to use this ancient tool of natural science. If I like your profile, I'll most likely ask if you for your birth info or Sun/Moon/Venus/Mars placements. My birth info and placements are: APR 29, 1965; 6:40pm; SF, CA (Taurus Sun & Venus, Aries Moon, Virgo Mars, Libra Rising)

Regardless of whether we're a good astro match, I will offer to share with you the compatibility report I generate with my astrology program. The report contains lots of good general astro info about each of us so it has value beyond any compatibility. If you're concerned, one cannot do anything sketchy with birth info alone, unless you offer up your SSN and last name, which I strongly discourage.

ENNEAGRAM NUMBER:
6 "The Loyalist" with a 5-Wing "The Defender"
