ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Because I grew up in the Bay Area, and because my high school experience was eerily similar to what went down in "Dazed and Confused," and because I basically had no parental supervision whatsoever, I'm still wont to use the phrase "just cold kicking it"—but only in an ironic way, because I'm now an adult.

I'm an editor/journalist who covers consumer technology, but often think I'd rather be one of those political pundits who appears on Lawrence O'Donnell or Rachel Maddow and riffs about "McCain-Feingold" or "Simpson-Bowles." Just one problem, though: I know these are bipartisan reform acts, but I have no idea what they really mean.

If you meet me in person, and if we really click and let all that ultra-polite small talk evaporate away, I trust you'll find me skeptical, opinionated, and even slightly misanthropic—but also demonstrably, emphatically warm and engaging. If you roll with Meyers-Briggs (no, that's not another legislative effort—but it could be, right?), know that I'm an INTJ.

I am practiced in looking askance. I do not approve of men wearing mustaches unless they're characters in period dramas. I know my fair share of net-speak, which concerns me, yes, because I'm a mid-40s man, not a 15-year-old girl. I speak to my dog in falsetto because I'm worried my natural voice is too bossypants for her. When I think of the TheOnion website, I proclaim silently, in my head, "L'onion!" in a thick, affected French accent. I enjoy racing actual sports cars on actual race tracks. I am hoping this is the douchiest thing I do. I dislike various words, but will nonetheless use them when proper context and/or specificity is required. These include foodie, ointment, panties, moist, and crumpet.

Romance is tough. It often feels almost unlikely. But who knows. If we can cut through the inherent awkwardness of Match, something might just happen. I'm looking for a real connection. I'm looking for someone who's just as much my best friend as girlfriend (sorry, the term "partner" also belongs on my annoying word list). I thrive in being in that space where I adore someone, and I know she adores me, and we're each other's strongest advocate, supporter, defender, and so on. It's intoxicating, and passionate, and always full of fun. So... Please mail me if you think I might make you laugh, and vice versa.

Oh, and my pictures are up-to-date and I really am 6-feet-tall. But not an inch taller.
