My self-summary
I've never been a fan of these self summary things. I always sound like an arrogant liar or self destructive, depending on the day. I"m just someone who's interested in talking to strangers

I'm a philosopher and a sailor. I like to travel and I like to have real experiences. I've come to a point in my life where my free time has become fairly valuable to me, so I'm really not interested in wasting it.

But then, wasted time is a bit of a perception issue. I'm great with sitting quietly and doing nothing, I just want to choose to do it.

I don't like getting jerked around, and I don't like lies.

I'm honest, to a fault.

I work in the Gulf of Mexico on a boat. I hate it, but it pays well enough that I can hopefully buy my own schooner and start up a sail training program. We'll see how it goes.

So I find myself having a hard time expressing exactly what I want or how it plays into my situation at the moment. My "what I'm looking for" thing doesn't really express it right. I thrive on meaning and passion, but I can only handle so much of it right now. I'm in various ports for four or five days at a time, just kind of bopping about.

If you want to be friends, by all means, message me.

I have no real expectations, because I can't. I can't stay here, and that has nothing to do with any of you; I'm just a sailor.

And if it's just a couple of drinks somewhere quiet and a great conversation, well, I love that too. I just generally like people, so that's what I'm looking for... people.

I am a man, you don't meet, every day
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm mostly either out in the middle of the gulf of mexico, in canada, or in NSB working with my dad on our schooner.
I’m really good at
Jack of all trades, master of none... Well, I am actually a really good storyteller

I'm also pretty good at having a basic conceptual understanding of quantum physics and can sing sea shanties with the best of them.

I'm told I give good advice and am very affectionate.

Not the greatest sailor in the world yet, but I'm working on it. Apparently I do alright.

Also, I've done a fair bit of fencing and historical combat with a focus on swords.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told my eyes are beautiful; it is just about the only compliment I actually will accept comfortably.
After that it's probably the long hair and beard, shortly followed by zany stories.

The six things I could never do without

A Star to Sail Her By
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything

I am aware that's kind of a stock answer, but I swear it's the truth. I weigh the morality of soap. I ponder the meaning of justice, I dream about a world with more ice cream. I connect the disparate and try to make sense of it all.

And it has been pointed out to me that there is actually a trend for murder rates to go up as ice cream sales go up... this is because both trends tend to rise when it's hot; stop blaming the ice cream, it's innocent and wonderful

I've also noticed that I don't trust people who have the same facial expression in every picture.
On a typical Friday night I am
That depends what country, state and city I'm in at the time
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Open book. I'll tell you anything you want to know, and likely a few you didn't want to.
You should message me if
You want to talk to someone. Would like a beer or a cup of coffee and an interesting conversation.

If you want to go exploring uninhabited islands

Think you could take me in a swordfight or friendly brawl
