My self-summary
I'm a (widowed) single dad and want to wade my way back into the dating pool. I love to cook, love to eat out, love good coffee, wine, beer and Scotch. I prefer to enjoy these things with other people, or more particularly, with one other person. I have no interest in going out to bars, and little in partying the way I did when I was in high school and University. But I do have a great wine cellar and a well stocked kitchen. I am looking for someone to spend and share time, food, and drink with.

Apart from those interests, I am, at heart, a nerd. Given the choice I'll take cartoons over Gray's Anatomy, Lord of the Rings over Titanic, and Scrabble over golf. I have a bone dry sense of humour that has been described as "wonderfully obscure", "weirdly esoteric", and "offensively off-putting". I believe that the world and our lives in it are worthy of enormous praise, but are also fairly absurd, and should be laughed at most of the time.
What I’m doing with my life
I was a lawyer, but that sucked pretty hard. Now I do freelance legal research for lawyers and firms. That means I actually have a life with time and freedom. I give a lot of that to my daughter, but have plenty left over.
I’m really good at
Cooking, making people laugh, making the people who didn't laugh very angry at me.
The first things people usually notice about me
My dry wit and cool charm. Or the red hair and bright red face that goes with it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot. My favourites from the past year: Let the Great World Spin, The Known World, The Believing Brain, The Demon-Haunted World.
Movies: Blade Runner, Yojimbo, The Princess Bride, This is Spinal Tap.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home watching a movie, or nerding out playing board games with my friends. That's why I'm here.
You should message me if
You want to go out on a few dates to see where a relationship goes. If you're open to something long-term, but also to having some fun together for a while, then moving on. Not every relationship that ends is a "failure".
