My self-summary
My name is Craig, and you are?
I have a wonderful penchant for cooking, you should never trust a skinny chef. What are you good at?
I was born in San Francisco, but have lived all up and down the coast, my last city was Los Angeles. Where do you hail from?
Tell me something interesting about you.

I'm not looking for a pen pal. I'm definitely interested in something long term, but I'm also definitely looking for someone to go out with, not come home to right now.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm preparing for the winter holidays. I've returned back home to San Diego after about a dozen years abroad, and glad to be back home.

I feel like I can have a little fun without worrying about "the future" too much. I'm able to do a little bit of traveling (while other countries are great, there's still a lot of this country I want to see. This year I've been to Nevada (Burning Man), Norfolk, Oahu and Kauai (Hawaii). I want some more time in the mid west though. I thought Kansas City was great, wasn't that big on St. Louis though. I didn't spend enough time in Detroit, just enough to be curious about exploring the urban blight of a ruined city.

I'm getting myself out there. I love hiking, riding my bike, Burning Man was fantastic this year. I'm having fun meeting people and making new friends.
I’m really good at
Enjoying the simple things in life, staying positive. Live, laugh, love.

I have fantastic date ideas when it's someone I like and I'm getting good feedback and know the person. I'm the guy whose date ideas get copied.

I love to do karaoke, sometimes bad, sometimes good, ALWAYS entertaining. I love going on tasting tours for awesome craft beers. I hike and ride my bike. I have two left feet, but I would love to find someone to take dance lessons with.

I manage to be the stable rock people build friendships on, and the guy who always has a good time. We find joy when we give up our expectations and live in the moment at the expense of no other person.
The first things people usually notice about me
Sometimes I don't smile, I'm not in a bad mood, I'm just thinking, or tuning out the world, and I look WAY more intense and intimidating that I actually am until I say or do something. This is the guy version of "resting bitch face". I'm not mean, I'm not scary, I just look that way.

I'm a very positive person, however, so if I'm not looking intense, it's probably the beard.

I'm enjoy hanging out with kids, and those that see me spending time with them often have the best opinions of me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Card, Butcher, Powers, Gaimon, Adams, Martin occasionally Sedaris and Barry

Food: I'm rather exploratory when it comes to my pallet, and I'm kind of a foodie, though when I'm cooking I tend to run spicy or rich foods with a lot of vegetables. I NEED a restaurant buddy, so even if you don't feel a love connection, if you think you can keep your end of the conversation, let me know!
Six things I could never do without
Amazing friends - I've chosen for loyalty, and I have it in spades.

Duct Tape - Because Duct Tape will fix everything.

A good multi-tool.

A lighter - FIRE GOOD!

A computer or other information device.

I'm part engineer...if I have those things, I can probably build the rest.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can make something better, whether it be experiences, or stuff I build, or friendships, and how the only people you should try to get even with are people who have treated you well.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most Fridays I'm at home, it's the end of my week and I usually go out during the week, often way too late, so I'm often burned out by the end of the week, and just want to order takeout and watch a movie.

If I get notified early enough in the week, however, I'm more than willing to be there for a good time.

Still, I'd rather sleep in and get out there all day Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A lot of my photos are taken with other people because I hate taking pictures by myself.

There are three qualities in women that draw me to women: intelligence, confidence, and the ability to not take oneself too seriously. These things are far more important than looks.
You should message me if
the day ends in 'y'. I'd just rather you say hi than creepily hang out and look at my profile. If I messaged you, I especially want to hear from you, even if it's just to say, 'No thanks.' I think the world would be a better place if we worked to create opportunities to treat people like people.

I'm looking for someone that is still looking for adventure. Someone that has their life together and is looking to share that joy and have the joy I've found shared with them. Someone that can take an offered arm and just find be enjoyable. Someone who gives everything they do everything they have, especially if they look silly doing it, and someone that wants to leave the world a better place. If that's you, send me a hello.

If you can tell me something you liked about my profile.
The two of us
