ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

In truth, I have never specifically asked anyone what my best and worst qualities are. I am very comfortable doing what I do and if folks like that then great, if not, that’s just fine too. Nevertheless, I have heard some second hand snippets and first hand declarations about me. These are the positive ones: funny and good-naturedly sarcastic, independent, intelligent (sometimes), self-deprecating (always), a science nerd, resourceful, playful (very), affectionate, sweet, open minded (except musicals) and very easy going (except in traffic).

It’s not all unicorns and rainbows though. You may find the following distasteful: I have not been to a mall since the Clinton administration, my hands are often rough from outdoor work (and play) and my car is always full of beach sand. Sometimes, I watch sports. I don’t follow recipes. I spend inordinate amounts of time in my garden. I suck at math and take selfies. I live in Cary (I like it though).

I am randomly unconventional: Dali's art makes sense to me, I don’t own an umbrella, a watch, an Xbox or a smart phone. I prefer okra raw. I have an odd, but spectacular career which only about 1,000 others do worldwide. I frequently camp without a tent.

Oh wait, there is more: I wear flip flops year round, pick up insects (and many, many other critters) just to look at them. I catch and release spiders (worry not: they go outside), drive bare footed, and love to hike in pouring rain, freezing cold and crazy heat. I like to do dishes and I think animal skulls are beautiful.

After those last bits, you might be surprised to know that I do have some streaks of old-fashionedness: I open doors for women, address elders as Sir or Mamn, am a hardcore monogamist and love to hold hands and kiss (in public too). I clean up after myself in hotels. On the road, I will let you merge in front of me. If we date, I will bring you wildflowers.

I’ve been divorced for over 6 years and have an 8 year old son and a 12 year old daughter. I like to teach them to think critically, how to catch fish, pick blue crabs, respect one's elders, cheerfully complete chores (a work in progress), appreciating the little things and enjoying (and being comfortable) in wild places. Even when its inclement.

I am a very selective TV viewer. I go out of my way to watch Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Louie, Maron and Eastbound and Down. I will watch good science analysis and political commentary when I can find it. Movies I can’t look away from include: Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting, Jaws, Sweeny Todd, Seven, Shaun of the Dead, The Shining, Coraline, Talladega Nights, This is Spinal Tap, Dr. Strangelove, and ANYTHING with Audrey Hepburn.

Musical tastes run diversely from Nine Inch Nails, Tool, Pink Floyd, The Stones and Lou Reed, to White Stripes, The Crystal Method, Bad Religion, Beck, Cash, Bowie, CCR, Patsy Cline, Neil Young, the Stanley Brothers (etc.).

At this point, you (and I) will agree that this is more than enough about me. So about you? I am most compatible with someone who is independent, relaxed, curious, open-minded, opinionated, confident, and down to earth, loves the outdoors, and who adores quality conversations about absolutely anything. I prefer someone who likes and can appreciate a sharp wit, has one of her own and is very eager to use it (particularly on me—please, I dare you) and who likes to joke and prank around (particularly with me—again, I dare you).

It will sound corny, but I’m basically looking for a woman who does not mind a walk in the rain even if no umbrella is on hand. Ever seen the end of the movie Midnight in Paris? Sign me up for that please.
