My self-summary
'What does a man mean when he talks about love?

He means that he desires, above all else, to make someone's life far better.
He means that his greatest hope is to elevate another.
He means that his soul is capable of moving beyond any humble place it has been.
He means that his life is incomplete without it.
This is what a man means when he talks about love.
Go fishing, my boy. '

Top Ten Reasons You'll Totally Dig Me:

1: I'm faithful, fun, loyal and cute. Like a puppy, except better, since I bathe myself and you don't need to buy me chew toys.

2: The attraction triangle theory suggests that out of three components (sane, good looking, smart), you can only have two. As you've probably already reckoned, at least I'm sane and smart. :)

3: I don't kick kittens. While I understand that there are taller, better looking men than myself that you could date, they all kick kittens. Do you really want to spend your life with a kitten kicker? I thought not.

4: When I get cash out of the ATM, I don't count it, but I do make sure all the bills are facing the same direction.

5: I'm an awesome cook. Seriously. I can cook you a better meal than what you can get in a good many restaurants.

6: I'm quite certaint that I am, in fact, not a butterfly dreaming that I am a man. Even as a butterfly, I think I'd have the common sense to dream that I was a taller and better looking man.

7: After 20 years in Los Angeles, I am still an 'East Coast Boy,' and very proud of it.

8: I very firmly believe that the very best things in life aren't 'things' at all.

9: If you don't email me, the terrorists win.

10: Everything in my profile is true, which shows that I'm either pretty honest, or dumb enough not to lie about the bad stuff. Hopefully the former, but it might be a combination of both.
What I’m doing with my life
Doing high-end visual effects for films and commercials. Cooking up some crazy good food from scratch. Enjoying my friends and family. Staying fit. Reading great books. Exploring. Photographing. Continuing to play hockey, even though my body now often reminds me that I'm not 25 years old any more.
I’m really good at
Cooking (especially French, Italian and Southwestern. And healthy soups.) Road tripping out of LA for the weekend, playing with kids, hockey, screaming profanities after golf shots, photography.
The first things people usually notice about me
My stunning good looks,of course. What? What???
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently reading biographies of the Founding Fathers and learning about the founding of the USA. Stuff that I didn't find interesting in high school and now can't get enough of. Not very sexy, I imagine.

Art house movies over mainstream movies (even though I work mostly on nerdy VFX movies.) Documentaries, silly comedies. And Mystery Science Theater, just to show how sophisticated I am.

Almost any music as long as it's quality and the players are good. Can't wait for the Greek schedule to come out…..

I'll cook or eat almost anything, except perhaps some nasty organs which I don't believe we were ever really meant to eat except in emergency.
The six things I could never do without
Food and wine.
Cooking supplies.
Books.
Weekends out of LA.
Family.
Intimacy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How is it possible that I'm on an online dating site. Again.

Spirituality.

Human nature.

History and how we never seem to learn anything from it.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I had a great answer for this, I wouldn't be on OK Cupid.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I rocked a flip phone up until recently. Old school.

You're looking for a completely awesome guy and are at a place in life where you want to build something great.
