Member Overview

Sometimes, I am a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder. At other times, I am covered in fur, smell like wet dog, and communicate in growls. No matter which, if the hyperdrive motivator is working, then we're doing the Kessel run in under 12 parsecs. Hang on! I love to eat. I love to...
Sometimes, I am a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder. At other times, I am covered in fur, smell like wet dog, and communicate in growls. No matter which, if the hyperdrive motivator is working, then we're doing the Kessel run in under 12 parsecs. Hang on! I love to eat. I love to cook. I love to ride bicycles. I love to swim. Sadly for my physical condition, those very much go in that order. I've also been a bit of a workaholic over the years, which hasn't helped, either. I do hope to make new mistakes, though, rather than repeat the old ones! My sense of humor relies a lot on word play and American pop culture. I'm often self-deprecating, which can bother people for some reason. I also tend to favor quantity over quality. You don't have to agree that I have a quick wit, but you can meet me half-way (that was a "half wit" joke embedded there...). You've been warned! :-) Do check the "vital statistics" and other attributes on my profile. That may save us both some time. A serious relationship is my long term goal, but I am being very picky in how I proceed. I want everyone to be happy, and if that means that you are better off with someone else, I want us to find that out as quickly as possible. And I do wish you well!! On a slightly deeper level, I'm an introvert (INTJ, strongly typed in all 4 attributes) who values a few high quality relationships, and that also makes me a good listener. You will be the center of my universe, so I'd like to understand what makes you tick. If I'm co-hosting a party, then I'm generally working the kitchen to keep the food and drink flowing. I'm not one who enjoys mingling, and I'm terrible at small talk. If you have patience with me through the awkward early stages, you may just be rewarded. I enjoy the outdoors, especially mountains and woods. I've done over 50 SCUBA dives, but I'm not really a beach kind of guy. A perfect day, for me, would be a nice hike in the mountains; swimming in a river, lake or spring; and then cuddling on the couch for dinner and a movie. Simple. :-)

I'm not looking for a maid. I'm not looking for a cook. I'm looking for lips to kiss, a hand to hold, and a smile that outshines the sun.

I'm not looking for a maid. I'm not looking for a cook. I'm looking for lips to kiss, a hand to hold, and a smile that outshines the sun. I'm looking for a hiking partner, a bad joke victim, and a cuddle buddy. I'm also looking for the remote to the TV and what just made that noise outside... I want you to be accomplished, but unsatisfied. Proud of what you've done, but humble about how deeply it pales versus the larger human endeavor. I want you to be comfortable in your own skin so that you can be sympathetic to the struggles of others. And I want you to be mine! :-) If your faith and your church, temple, or mosque, are the centers of your life, then we are unlikely to be a good match. If you are looking for a religious man or a God-Fearing man, then I am not what you are seeking. I am agnostic, bordering on atheistic, but I put a great value on moral philosophy and something that approximates spirituality. So, if you want someone to discuss the implications of Immanuel Kant vs. John Stuart Mill, and you don't mind that there's an empty seat next to you in the pew, then this might just work. Bonus points are awarded to introverts, educators, and clinicians. You know who you are! :-) Finally, smoking is a "hard no".

More About Me

Favorite Movie:

Wall Street and Boiler Room - the overt subject matter is less interesting than the implied social commentary and the sociopolitical backdrop against which they were made.

Favorite Book:

Le Morte d'Arthur; Tolkien

Favorite Food:

As long as I've got a better chance of getting to it before it gets to me...

I am particularly fond of Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese and Mediterranean foods. I'm not a big fan of pasta (Italian) dishes.

I love fresh-baked breads of all sorts. I definitely love fresh flat breads (Naan, Pida, Pita, etc.).

Favorite Music:

Pop, Classical, Rock, Others

Dress Style:

I hope the phrase "train wreck" is too harsh. I fear that it isn't. Conservative, but casual?

Humor:

Dry, perhaps to the point of only amusing me.

Hobbies & Interests:

Cycling, Travel, Cooking

Travelled:

I've got too big of a blank spot in Asia, and I've never been to Africa.

Cultural Adaption:

very.

Romance:

Let's keep that between us.

Personality:

Intense, at times. Laid back at all others.

My Perfect Match is:

Someone who enhances the good in me, and I do the same for her.

Safety Tip - Do not send money for plane tickets

If you meet someone from another country and want them to visit you, do not send them money to buy a plane ticket. Instead purchase the ticket yourself directly at a reputable online travel site or at a reputable travel agent. Make sure the ticket can only be refunded or cancelled by you and check all immigration rules before inviting someone to visit you. Report anyone who you are suspicious about by clicking the "Report Abuse" icon.
