My self-summary
My primary identity is dad to my 15yo son and I'm glad to see that most folks on dating sites agree on that!
Friends have described me as intellectual but never stuffy, nerdy but athletic, competitive but laid-back, and not really defined by any single one of those traits.
A comedian (cannot recall who, dangit!) once said we define our compatibility as much by mutual dislikes as likes. I'm definitely not your typical 'Red-State' sort of guy. Professional sports bore me and the politics around here both annoy and worry me.
What I’m doing with my life
Raising my kid, working and trying to still have some time for myself wedged somewhere in there.
I’m really good at
Avoiding ego-stroking questions like this in favor of talking about them in person after getting to know someone a bit better.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm actually the height I put down in my profile!
And I've been flattered to find out that my co-workers regularly guess I'm 10 years younger than my actual age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Short list:
Song of Ice & Fire series (Game of Thrones) and Dresden Files, recent Malcolm Gladwell convert as well;
Shawshank Redemption, Princess Bride and LA Confidential; Anything by National Geographic & Joss Whedon;
Classic rock, especially Eagles and ZZ Top;
Southern Italian.
Six things I could never do without
Air beyond 3 minutes
Shelter beyond 3 hours
Water beyond 3 days
Food beyond 3 weeks (Rule of 3s- medical & SAR folks will know 'em)

My son's love
Corn chips

After an unplanned battery replacement & nearly 2 days down, I'm going to have to add CELL PHONE to this list!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much better this question would be in a face to face conversation...
On a typical Friday night I am
Frequently working
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Fan-boy, nerd, geek, whatever you prefer. Not especially private as one glance at my DVD collection would instantly tell you this.
But if you were a kid or teen when Star Wars came out and you DIDN'T end up a life-long fan-boy/girl, I say those are the imagination-challenged folks you need to worry about.
You should message me if
You're not really a 'Red-State' kinda woman and you're not looking for the typical Oklahoma guy.
The two of us
