I like chess, playing guitar, flying kites, frisbees, dogs, ps2's, mountain bikes, physics, red wine, coffee shops, bonfires, finding money on the street, fine cuisine, grass stains, good times, quiet moments, hard falls, astronomy, driving large vehicles, canoes, books, long lists, music, cool old things, cigars, and that really nice feeling after a burger and couple a beer. I'm a wandering country boy who's been stuck in one place for too long. I found this site after reading about fish oils. What the hell, right? I'm a simple guy, my sense of humor is mostly physical and sometimes dangerous. I listen well but usually give bad advice. I like getting dirty sometimes but I clean up well. I like a girl who also isn't afraid to get dirty with me and who cares as much about her brain as she does about her body. Those are the only traits that she must have in common with me. Other than that, I'm open. I try not to be picky but, on the other hand, I don't want a girl who settles for a guy with low standards so I keep my standards high. If I end up a little lonely sometimes because of that then so be it, I can deal with a little loneliness. I like life to be peppered with foolishness and mildly irrational behavior. It keeps me centred. I work hard at being rational for most of the time but sometimes need a little help or a good slap. I like cooking and making my friends eat it. I'm tall, lean, and I don't tire easily. I have a low voice that is sometimes good for singing while I play guitar. I'm your mild-mannered guy next door.
