My self-summary
"Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives." - C.S. Lewis

**Trump voters: Please keep it moving...nothing to see here. We have nothing to talk about...unless you feel profound remorse and shame, and genuinely seek forgiveness. In that case, I believe you should be welcomed back to the light.**

I don't have a long list of requirements, but am hoping to meet one attractive, active, happy, fun woman with a youthful spirit who wants to laugh a lot and is truly laid-back, at least in her personal life. If you are an intense go-getter at work, that's long as you can truly relax and have fun when work is done. My job can be pretty intense would be great if we could help each other escape from all that. I would like to meet a woman who can become my best friend, with the goal of eventually developing into a long-term relationship. I'm up for any activity: an outdoor festival, trying a new ethnic restaurant, seeing live music, visiting a gallery/museum, a hike or bike ride, or cooking dinner together and watching a movie at home. We may get along really well if your friends/family would use any of the following to describe you: youthful, playful, smart, casual, fun, optimistic, happy, relaxed... Not so much if: intense, stuffy, uptight, anxious, depressed, angry...

For what it's worth, I have been told by several dates that I look much better in person than in my photos. For example, one woman recently said "You look much better in person than in your photos!" :)
What I’m doing with my life
Raising my two amazing kids (one in college in Chicago now), working, thinking a lot about the next phase in my life, planning my escape from the suburbs...
I’m really good at
Being Dad, thinking, kissing, writing, cooking, being a great boyfriend/partner/lover. Finding fun things to do.
The first things people usually notice about me
The first thing that people notice about me is that in real life I am charming, funny, smart, and fun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love all music, all the time. I should play bass guitar, but I don't practice. I promise...I'll start again soon! Some of my favorites include Talking Heads, Neil Young, Nirvana, White Stripes, Amy Winehouse, Bobby Darin, Cake, St. Vincent, Citizen Cope, Lucinda Williams, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash...

I am a good cook and love good food. I want to cook for you. My chocolate chip cookies are legendary, and once made a teenage boy say something so inappropriate, he was almost banned from my home.

I love to read. Two popular titles of recent years that I thought were just awful: The Tipping Point, and Three Cups of Tea. If you agree, we may be soulmates. If you disagree, that's no biggie either...we still may be soulmates, but I am not likely to be in a book club with you.

Movies: The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, Pulp Fiction, Big Lebowski, Whiplash

TV: I don't watch very much TV, although I don't fear or vilify it. Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Wire, CNN.
Six things I could never do without
My kids
friends and family
good coffee
outdoor recreation: camping/hiking/skiing/cycling/kayaking
A manual transmission
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Will I ever be able to stop answering to The Man? Why do two bass guitars hang on my office wall, yet I never make time to play them? Why do spider crickets and mosquitos exist? What am I gonna make for dinner tonight?

Can't we all just get along?

Where are you?
On a typical Friday night I am
At home wondering why I'm not on a date, on a date wondering why I'm not home.


Wondering why so many women on OKC list "parallel parking" in the "I'm really good at" section of their profile. :) For those of you who admire parallel parking skills, here's a recent video of me parallel parking my Mini...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die.
You should message me if
You want to date someone who is truly a very good guy, is very passionate, is fun, is surprisingly normal, and wants to be a great boyfriend/partner.
The two of us
