My self-summary
I have a job.

I also have a car and a house.

I take a shower every day.

Can you say the same about your current man?

I am stable, educated, and responsible.

I've heard that women who are intelligent and successful often have trouble finding a date. I am totally fine with dating a woman who is smarter than me, has a better degree and a better job. I promise you I am not looking for a sugar mama, but a breadwinner would be totally awesome. I figure that, after a LONG courtship, it would be great to live in a true two-income household where we can afford to set aside a little bit of each paycheck for our travel fund, and then go see the world.

The "eww he's obsessed with sports" warning:

I have the NHL Center Ice package and I frequently attend both CBJ and OSU games. The winter time to me would be very boring without it.

I'm the same way with soccer, as I never miss a Columbus Crew home game unless someone in my extended family is getting married that day. As of this writing, I have missed two home games since 2008.

If the sports thing bothers you, do us both a favor and move along. I've realized that it's a bad idea to try and hide it.

On religion: my family background is actually Jewish, but we quit going to temple when I was 9 because the rabbi was a jerk. I don't have anything against people who are religious. As long as I'm not expected to become a weekly attendee then we can get along. I'm willing to consider dating a Jewish woman, but for me it's a huge turnoff to look at someone and think "Hey, she looks like one of my cousins!". I'm willing to consider dating a woman from a hindu or muslim background so long as she embraces modernity and moderation. The one religion that I universally abhor is Jehovah's Witnesses, and the reason is I would not be alive today if it weren't for blood transfusions, which they think are evil.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been married and divorced, I've had cancer and gone into remission TWICE. I am stronger than ever.
I’m really good at
Staying positive.

Making the most out of every day.

Making fruit smoothies in a blender.

Taking complicated things and making them easier to understand.

Describing things in a visual way.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. 6'1or2". I mean, that's not like NBA tall or anything but tall enough to reach stuff.

I don't open my eyes enough for pictures unless I think about it or are reminded.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I mostly read non-fiction but nobody seems to want to hear about that so here are some novels I've enjoyed recently: The New Republic by Lionel Shriver, Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk, Netherland by Joseph O'Neill, 11/22/63 by Stephen King, and How To Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid.

Movies: My favorites are anything directed by the Coen Brothers, Wes Anderson, or Paul Thomas Anderson. I still haven't seen the Master yet because I've been told by more than one person it was terrible.

Shows: Breaking Bad, House of Cards, HIMYM, Stewart/Colbert. I love NPR and BBC Radio 4. My guilty pleasures are Pawn Stars, Jim Henson's Creature Shop and Phineas and Ferb.

Music: I love anything with real instruments. Lately I've been on a Jazz / Blues kick.

Food: I like almost everything. My favorite restaurants in Columbus are El Arepazo, Creole Kitchen, and, if money is no object, Mitchell's Steakhouse.

I want to mention, by the way, that I am not opposed to eating vegetarian / vegan meals though I'd be lost if I were ever assigned to put one together myself. I certainly would have no problem with dating someone who is vegan or vegetarian as long as they respect that I won't give up meat. Every now and then having a meatless meal isn't such a bad thing, but I could never do it full time.
Six things I could never do without
All things I pay for monthly: Car, TV, Internet, Phone, Gas, Electric.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The fuuuuuuutttttuuuurrrre!
On a typical Friday night I am
At a game somewhere, probably.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I ever have to cry on cue I can do so by remembering the Futurama episode about Fry's dog.
You should message me if
You want to be my friend.
The two of us
