My self-summary
July 2017
Here's the deal. I've spent many recent years not being in a relationship. I'm not going to go into details here, but the wall I've built is a strong one. I crack jokes and tell stories so that you can't tell what's really going on with me. Recently, I felt a crack in the wall.

I'm going to take the George Costanza opposite instincts approach here:
I'm a nerd. I live in a condo with my mother. I have a job, but I am underemployed.

June 2016
I'm a New England native. From here in Maine, but I lived in Boston and spent a stint in Northern California. Now I'm back Maine where I grew up. I find myself loving being connected to family and old friends here.

I pepper my speech with words like yoicks, dang and friggin. I can swear a blue streak if needed. I'm pretty good with Yiddish for someone who really has no need of it.

I went to church growing up and am grateful for that exposure, but I am an atheist. That said, I have friends of all faiths.

If your profile lacks punctuation or the spelling is atrocious, I'll ignore you.

If you even considered voting for Trump for any reason, forget it.

My listed age is my actual age.

I have no criminal record.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about traveling. What is my life's purpose? How did I get here?

I am hanging out with friends, having a bit to eat, while we talk about what ever is going on.
