I'm quiet, intelligent, and enjoy learning about nearly anything. I run, lift weights, and study daily (hopefully for the rest of my life). My sense of humor runs towards sarcasm but it is always good natured and is directed more towards life's ironies and paradoxes. I value openness, sincerity, respect, and affection in my relationships. I work at being up front and honest with my feelings and expectations. To not alter my behavior when I'm upset in the expectation that my partner is going to intuitively know what is going on. I appreciate brutally honest communication. Not brutal as in being insensitive towards another, but in making oneself vulnerable by being completely honest. My quietness is due to a lack of interest in others for conflicting opinions rather than lack of anything to say.
I met my ex on match and will not join again for arbitrary reasons ;-) So emailing and winking serves no purpose other than testing my resolve to remain a nonmember. As I inadvertently left too much information with my user name I shouldn’t be hard to find using an alternative method.
All my pictures are within a 3 year time frame. More recent pictures are marked as such as it seems I’m now aging in dog years after passing the 45 years of age landmark. Muscle mass, strength, running speed, and hairline are all declining rapidly ;-) Taking pictures of myself seems narcissistically ridiculous so I’ve asked friends kids to take pictures on my last two birthday parties and after a horrendous haircut. None of the recent pictures are particularly flattering but I thought if I posted bad pictures then you’d be pleasantly surprised when or if we meet. Of course it could also mean that there are no remaining angles, lighting, clothing, or lack thereof, possible to portray me favorably ;-)
As this is an election year I should mention that I enjoy conversations on politics and religion with those who have thought through their positions. Rather than parroting second hand opinions without thought, consideration, and study of their own. Those who are considerate of opposing viewpoints, willing to listen and respond in an intelligent and thoughtful manner. It would be even better discussing aforementioned topics with those who understand and can apply the rules of logic and understand fallacious arguments. I should also mention that any Tea party members, Republicans, or those who think their listening to news on Fox “news” are probably going to be a poor match for myself. I actually was a Republican before taking quite a few classes in political science, economics, and learning to think for myself. (Sounds rather elitist but I cannot think of a better way to say it. If you’re offended or don’t understand… [Once again, probably going to be a poor match]) I should also point out I have little love for the Democratic Party or politicians in general. But I’m amazed that I can still be amazed by the Tea Party’s lack of knowledge of fundamental economics. The republican’s denial of truth in science and history (both past and present history) and that Fox news has twice the viewership of its closest competitor. I’m beginning to think the Mayan’s could be right ;-) at least for America. Unfortunately this last paragraph is going to eliminate a large portion of the women in OC ;-) But truth be told I’m using Match just to look at my daily matches while I try to wake up with a cup of coffee before heading out for a run. If something comes from it… great. My experiences while a member however were not positive enough to continue trying as it seems Men do not have sole bragging rights on duplicity ;-)
I’m surprised by the amount of women who have a 6’2” cutoff. So I should disclose that I’m 6’2” and a half barefoot, and 215lbs. It seems that men out here exaggerate their height a minimum of an inch so I could be what you think 6’5” by skewed California standards when in my running shoes. And yes I have a huge head as in too large for fitted caps.
