ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

07.07.14

OK, THE IMPORTANT INFO FIRST: I am moving back to my hometown of Portland at the end of August after 15 years in Los Angeles, which is too long to be away from Powells, Trailblazer fans, Duck fans, lots of rain and Fred Myers. I'll be visiting during the Summer, and even attending my 20th high school reunion, which I'm sure I'll survive.

I don’t have a criminal record, not a stalker, not into drugs of any kind (even recreational), have no pictures of me flexing in the mirror (you probably already know that now), believe in getting to know someone rather than googling them, in good health, not mean to old people, the homeless or kids, like paying my bills on time, love learning when I feel dumb, and enjoy being the best Uncle while making a career in television/art (I'm not an Actor), oh...and I'm flawed like everybody else. I know that no one is looking for an online pen-pal at the moment (not even me), but I thought why not write this out anyway, and I’ll either hear from you when I get settled in or simply just look forward to meeting you soon.

I’ve rewritten this profile a few times, and there is a tendency after awkward online dates to go on a negative rant, because that really wins a girl’s heart, right? With that said, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME IF:
-You're not in the mindset to date, leading to a relationship.
-You have recently broken up/separated from someone.
-In a bad place with your divorce.
-Are a serial dater numbing out to life and people.
-Confused your dating profile for a resume and wrote a PERFECT VERSION of yourself.
-If you say you’re a NERD when you’re really a KARDASHIAN, I’m hoping this really only applied to L.A. dating.
-have a profile with no picture, and a headline with a number to text, it's creepy.

*FOR THE RECORD, single parents, I grew up in a divorced family and both of my parents moved onto great relationships as they deserved to.

ABOUT ME:
-I’m shy, laid back, goal oriented, and a low-key perfectionist.
-I can laugh at myself, life and the world, and I’m ok with not being perfect, but enjoy being damn near close. :)
-I love movies, comic books, old TV shows like “Cheers” and “Threes Company,” animation, regular exercise, road trips, get togethers with friends/family, and live music
-I like inside jokes, and well thought out pranks.
-My friends/family are drama free, and far from normal, which just means not boring
-I’m a Summer Camp Nerd, and plan Camp Counselor reunions with friends from those Summers.
-HEROES: My parents, Superman, Jack Canfield, Ferris Bueller & Charlie Brown.

FAVORITE TRAITS YOU MIGHT HAVE:
-Can laugh at yourself and life, are a master of wit and sarcasm, but not like an angry/depressed/drunk comedian.
-I have a giving personality, and prefer someone who’s the same.
-Know that a “mind reading session” can really ruin what might be great day, unless I could read minds.
-You know communicating and changing together is the only way this is ever going to work.
-Enjoy your friends and family, you surround yourself with great, positive and supportive people, your life isn’t crazy filled drama to where you can’t sleep knowing life is going on
without your opinion.
-You know exercise can take the edge off a long day
-Its not a “must have,” but I am attracted to those who’s careers are in teaching, helping others or are creative.
-You enjoy movies, travel, can defend your bad musical choices like a State of Union address
-Goal oriented.
-You kinda like ME

SO, I don’t expect an instant “romantic connection” on a first online date, a shared interest is just fine. If we enjoy each other’s company and conversation, that’s a good enough place to start. I've met nice people I didn't click with on this site, and I've met people who aren't ready to click with anybody. Unfortunately, the crazy folks that signed up for this find me first..

Interests:
Alumni connections, Camping, Coffee and conversation, Business networking, Dining out, Movies/Videos, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Performing arts, Playing sports, Travel/Sightseeing, Watching sports, Wine tasting
Sports & exercise:

Exercise habits:

Pets:
Pet Essay:

Not an aspiring cat owner, there, I said it, no allergies, our personalities just don't click, and I'm ok with it. I grew up a dog-person, and really like French bulldogs, they're fun and goofy.

Political views:
Middle of the Road
Sign:
Cancer
College:
Southern Oregon University, Ashland, OR
For fun:

Planning trips, exercise, Trailblazer games, drawing, Art Museums, finding new music, scotch, movies, comic books, concerts, listening to you, watching University of Oregon sports, learning anything new tied to my career or just for fun, a good walk

Favorite hot spots:

Palm Springs, Costa Rica, Chicago, New York, Vegas, live sporting events (can't watch it on TV), any lounge here that plays music or is easy to hang out and shoot the breeze. I'd like to add Italy to this list, very soon.

Favorite things:

My family, friends, creative projects, learning new skills, movies, comic books, live music, good grocery shopping, podcasts, reruns of Cheers, photography red-vines, the Apple Store, exercise, cheesy biographies, and hippos (they're cool).
