About me
I'm a pretty regular guy, with pretty much "old school" values, I suppose. I work for a living, make pretty good money, and don't have any unfortunate spending habits. I'm in pretty good shape because of the work that I do, but if you're looking for a skinny guy with a ripped six pack fresh from the gym, I'd have to say I'm a bit more puffed than buffed, and try to blush my way through it. (But in the spirit of full disclosure here are my 2009 stats: I'm 6'1, 210-220 depending on the time of year. By no means "dumpy", but not even close to skinny.)

Anyway, as I say, I'm a pretty regular guy; reasonably intelligent, reasonably well educated, reasonably articulate, and moderately cultured. If you're a conversationalist you'd find me to be funny in an ironic kind of way, and a bit of an intellectual clown when it comes to playing with words here, or playing with people in a social setting. So if you're likely to laugh at a quick wit, and amusing nonsense, you'd likely find me to be a fun guy. I tend to get on a roll once I get people laughing, and it can be a lot of fun, especially when others start playing too. Did I fail to mention outgoing, and plays well with others? Alas, I tend to be a bit gregarious it seems, so if you're into the anal retentive kinda' guy, you're just gonna' hate me.

To be honest, I've kinda' found myself in a state of more "aloneness" than I think I care for. I would love to find a little tenderness in my life, and maybe even fall in love again. I'm not really "seeking" in the proactive sense of the word as is typical of the serial daters around here, more trying to broaden my social horizons, meet some new people, make a few friends, and open a few doors that would allow for something to actually be possible should it be in the cards. I do not have a predetermined list of specific qualities I am "looking for" in my next partner. People are all unique. I find "agenda" dating to be a lot less enjoyable than just getting together with someone to be social, friendly, and have a good time. You know, like in the "old" days. When people weren't burning through one date after another with a list in their hand, interviewing for someone who might embody an "image" pretty much cooked up in their own imagination.

I'm quite sure if there are any sparks between us once we meet we won't miss the fact, but I hate getting together with someone specifically to "look" for chemistry. That's nuts, it's NEVER there when you LOOK for it. And it's NOT enjoying the experience of meeting someone new, and maybe even discovering something magic, it's more like a high stress job interview, for a job you don't even know if you want yet, and it really does put a damper on things for all parties concerned. So if we're gonna' do this, can we agree to just have some fun, even if it is only in passing? Neither of us are looking for just something, we're both looking for something amazing. You know what I mean... Sooner or later we'll bump into someone who will be right for us, maybe even here. In the mean time, it doesn't mean we can't just enjoy ourselves when we meet, right? "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That's why they call it the "present". (Kung Fu Panda)
