My self-summary
My dad used to read the personal ads in the city newspaper out loud to my family at dinner and oh, we'd laugh and laugh, so I feel a kinda sense of trepidation in going on here, and that's pretty natural, no? However I feel no trepidation about meeting some handsome, smart, kind dude. So here we are.

That said: I'm a warm, affectionate guy and I love to talk, so don't be afraid to say hi.

Things I am very interested in include: New moods, fighting the heat of the battlefront, the lulls afterward, getting to be the one to tell you all about it, running, reading, telling dogs they're good dogs, hairy chests that are burning inside, great anecdotes that are only slightly related, fast-moving slappy skies when the leaves are right on, simple meals, leaving that there for now, something else.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to outrun the sniping jackals.
I’m really good at
Finding Youtube videos which can work as visual metaphors for any given situation. This clip, for me, summarizes the online dating experience: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XjC_0lGm0E
The first things people usually notice about me

Six things I could never do without
- My handsome bike.
- A book to read, just in case (I have friends who like to show late).
- The friends themselves (even when they're late to show).
- Phone to use in order to text friends asking why they are late ("Wherever you go/ Whatever you do/ I will be right here waiting for you./ Whatever it takes/ Oh how my heart breaks/ I will be right here waiting for you").
- Spirited discussion.
- The sun, particularly nice when seen through leaves.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The two of us
