My self-summary
I am a single male with no history of marriage or children. I did go to Vegas with the intention of marrying a showgirl, but that didn't pan out. I am a healthy person with a healthy lifestyle until bacon is within reach. I don't smoke or use drugs. I do like a drink or two with good friends every once and a while.

Lets try this again: I like to people-watch in crowded places, only I don't like crowded places. I like old things. There was a time when objects were made to last a lifetime. My interests get me fully involved. I know many people, but I have few friends. I don't like TV shows that don't have a conclusion at the end of their time slot. I remember when bologna had red plastic on the outside edge and MTV played videos. I like odd socks.

Socks_with_dots is modest to a fault. Never bragging about his (immense) skillset, (abundant) cleverness or (razor-sharp) wit but always happy to spread his joy for the things and activities he cares about, often in ways that could cost you a heap of cash if he wasn't your friend. As such, I thought I'd jump in and sing his praises for a bit.

Socks_with_dots' fascination with what he terms "old things" seems to stem from a reverence for the classic; that which has stood the test of time to keep competing favorably against the latest development from the bleeding edge. Classic motorcycles, steel-framed bicycles, diesel engines, clothes made of natural fiber, etc. No disposable culture for him, please. If it can't be maintained, repaired, modded and/or upgraded, Socks_with_dots can't be bothered. On a hunch, I'd say Socks_with_dots looks for similar qualities in a mate: elegance, strength, versatility, adaptability, classicism. I further suspect Socks_with_dots' embrace of hard work in maintaining what he cares about would also extend to romance and relationships. However, I don't think any of the above pertains to the age of the women he prefers. Ladies, use good judgment when deciding if you are of a suitable age to date Socks_with_dots.

I am creative, suigeneris, and bacon
What I’m doing with my life
My life in a short timeline is school, work, school, work, work, work, laid off, decompress, work at something I love. It has worked out for the best and I see a future doing something in the same field.
I’m really good at
Solving problems. I enjoy working with my hands. Loosing track of time.

Socks_with_dots is the kind of guy you want to have on hand if you intend to survive a zombie apocalypse. He is a maker, a solver of problems, a remover of obstacles, a whiz and an intellectual in a way that many book-educated types could use to emulate. Possessed of a unique ingenuity and a knack for making the laws of physics do his bidding, his solutions tend to be elegant, thorough, sustainable and reusable. You want it to work right forever and look good all the while? Ask Socks_with_dots.
The first things people usually notice about me
How do I know the answer to this? People always comment on my shoes. It has been said that I wear "old" shoes. I like plain leather or cloth shoes. I have also been told that upon first meeting me, people are not sure if I am serious or joking. The other day a first impression was that I have a spooky dog. Ok, another one, I have a rugby shirt that a stranger called "fashion vomit." I kind of like that shirt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like books with tangible history that are written from other points of view. I also read books about industry as well as some sci-fi and mysteries. If it's a good read, I can't put it down.

Lately I find myself watching more movies from the 40s and 50s. I think it is either I don't need special effects to be entertained or beauty didn't have to be so dirty in the films of yesteryear.

Music from the 80s works best for me. I do like all types as long as the singer doesn't whine or belittle.

food=yes? You just can't say yes to food these days because of television showing people eating the oddest things.
Six things I could never do without
The Sun. Good company. A bicycle. The ability to travel. Tall trees that can be climbed. Clean underwear. Banana pudding. Flip-flop annihilation ray gun. Why six when this list could go on and on?

Let's elaborate about Socks_with_dots' interest in traveling: Socks_with_dots has an insatiable curiosity and an explorer's spirit, making him a natural globe-trotter. Socks_with_dots has been throughout the US (which people often forget has hugely diverse peoples, locales and terrain right inside its borders) as well as to the UK and South America. His favored travel activities include sight-seeing, intentionally getting lost in order to discover cool things, outdoorsy activities (cycling, camping, hiking, rock climbing, running, etc), cultural stuff like museums and art galleries and, of course, sampling local cuisine. (Wanna make him happy? Take him back to the British Museum and then maybe hop the Eurostar for a few days gawking at The Louvre and pedaling down the Champs-Elysees.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I am. Why do I ride bicycles with people who have personal trainers? So sore.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am the work schedule "yes-man", which means I can work Friday night. Heck, I'm single and that is why I am here. If I am not out with friends then you can find me working on an old motorcycle or auto.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Smart women with the ability to have fun getting dirty and then dress up for the High are such a turn-on.
You should message me if
You are an educated woman, non-smoker, healthy and drug free. I know it sounds shallow and crude, but I am tired of self-medicated, smoking drunks that can't hold a conversation (The Buckhead type). Shhhh, might get in trouble for that one.
The two of us
