My self-summary
I am in a relationship and no longer on the site or answering emails. If I could hide my profile, I would.

Good luck.

I just can't bring myself to write and say how great I am but, all things considered, I don't think I'm too bad.

I am sincere, honest, pleasant, interested in lots of things, reliable, always trying to do just a little bit better, and successful enough to be content. Those are the things that are important to me. There's much more to know about me than that, but if I had to tell you about myself in once sentence, that would be it.

I'm a successful, financially secure, professional. That is not the most important thing about me, but it means I can do most of the things I want. Even more with a partner beside me.

I'm told I look much younger than my age--and feel that way too. My photos were taken a few years apart. I'm usually behind the camera. There's a little more grey in the recent ones. Age seems to be important to most people, it took me a while to realize that it was not that important to me. I'm a kid at heart and there are kids of all ages.

I'm literate and intelligent, but not a snob. I get along just as easily with CEO's as with plumbers. I have a lot more respect for, and more interesting discussions with, the plumbers.
What I’m doing with my life
Finding the things you enjoy and are good at makes life a lot more fulfilling. Photography, landscaping, and gardening are some of those things, but it is only a small part of who I am.

I'm trying to be more active, eat better, and work less. Things are headed in the right direction. I live a few minutes outside of town I have things out here to keep me busy--trimming trees and bushes, taking care of the yard, this may be the year I'll put in a garden.

I take photos, write, have a blog, am always learning new things. I'm interested in lots of things. But I'm not always rushing here and there.

I'm in the process of getting my passport, and I don't want to travel alone.

For the most part I prefer interesting, out of the way places to crowded, touristy places.

I'm a guy and I like guy things, chain saws and power tools. However I read everything from Dickens to Tolkien to Tom Clancy.

Other things I like.
Scenic views
I’m really good at
Listening. Understanding the perspective of others.
Keeping calm in a crisis. Taking charge when necessary.
Keeping an open mind.
Finding unconventional solutions to conventional problems.
The first things people usually notice about me
I move like a Ninja, they aren't supposed to notice.

The second thing might be that I don't take silly questions too seriously.

The third thing might be my sense of humor.

The fourth thing might be that I only read instructions when working with dangerous stuff, and I usually avoid dangerous stuff.

(Was I supposed to stop at one?)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read much fiction anymore, but I enjoy a well written book, pretty much regardless of the subject, unless the subject is something like American Idol or Survivor.

Most food, especially seafood and pasta.

Old movies, thrillers.

Classic rock, some classical, sometimes pop, whatever that is these days.
Six things I could never do without
  • My family. My sons.

  • My relationship with them has changed over the years in ways that are different and better than I ever would have imagined.

  • Wikipedia

  • Evidently I can do without someone soft and warm to wake up next to in the morning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is the world crazy, or am I?

Why is there air?
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to think that I don't have "typical" Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am way better looking in person....

Well, maybe not, but I am way funnier in person....

Well, maybe not that either.
You should message me if
You're not any crazier than me. Well, at least not much.

You really want something different in your life. I'm not "just another guy".

You're interest in "stuff": Nature, stars, tadpoles, why people do the things they do...

You're not already perfect. I'm not, so we would never get along. However if you're trying to improve a little each day...

You tend to use "..." in your sentences a lot.
The two of us
