My self-summary
Yeah... no, the already fraught on-line dating context seems to be getting more so, some kind of secular trend? Whatever, so, I'll keep this profile here as a cautionary note, until my subscription is up. Try to meet people in the worlds you inhabit, might be hard, but this is mostly fool's gold. There is an entitled, menu driven, Amazon quality to all of this, age limits are treated like death zones and/or deludedly, and there is much fear and deflection.

Perhaps we'll meet in a real place, but definitely not in this venue. And the words that follow are pointless. I could have written your favorite book, made your favorite movie, no matter. If I don't have your precise list of features, I'll be dispensed with in a pico second, all the while, you'll be muttering to yourself "why can't I simply find my perfect partner, is that too much to ask??" My laugh is rueful and sardonic, as much at myself as for those poor souls who think they've entered a beautiful sunlight dappled meadow that is actually the recent scene of bloody battle, shattered bodies hidden by the spring growth of mustard and nettles.

ignore below line
I'm a poet, so I have a day job (doing science and philosophy), also do lots of music and photography, lived overseas many years, high energy, up for most anything, sex positive (is that a trick question?), physically very fit, have long bouts of kindness, often am known to cook relatively non-lethal meals (NLMs).
I’m really good at
1) overestimating how good I am at anything in particular
2) underestimating the truly humiliating and mortifying nature of on-line dating.
The first things people usually notice about me
that I'm kind or more prosaically, I'm tall, attractive/not attractive, etc
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot, I listen to and play music a lot, see movies a lot
love to talk about, discuss the world I'm living in

so, lots of favorites
The six things I could never do without
someone else's passport, (I'm an international spy)

dark energy (nothing like dark chocolate, but also a constituent element of the universe)

Coelecanths (obviously)
that's all I got.........
On a typical Friday night I am
in a fetal position, drooling and rocking in front of my computer opened to an on-line dating site. "my precious, my precious...."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still count numbers on my fingers, I would use my toes but I lost the lot of them on K2......funny story.

or that it's cringe worthy when you see answers here like "well it wouldn't be private then would it?" or "I'll tell you later..." Puh-lease.

so little playfulness, creativity, courage, at the least, make it up!
You should message me if
if you're have (most of) your teeth, (or at least good dentures) aren't throwing gang signs (too obviously)
and if you're wicked creative, smart, brave, kind
and un-apologetically the opposite of puritanical, I'm game

Having a very international perspective/experience is good too
