    There is a little sidebar on the dating site that says what you want to do about kids: "Wants them" or "might want them" or "Doesn't want them."
    Mine clearly states: "Doesn't want them."

    Regarding 200 words or less, that actually sounds like a fun challenge!

(Country boy has a lot of connotations for me - you covered some of them elsewhere, Vulcan - you are unemotional, logical, and a Trekkie?, "old school liberal" - what does that even mean?)

    Fun idea, but he is very well-behaved.

    I think bae was suggesting that for people who want to date you "message me, send picture of dog."

    you do do a lot for Harlan he might be willing to put up with a refresher course as your wingdog.

    Alice's music always moves me! I have been to his concerts several times, once in a tiny theatre with like 300 people. Great show! I met him at a big haunted house once too. Very cordial fellow.

    My good friend used to borrow my very-well-behaved Basset Hound to take for walks in the park, to the dog park, and to doggie classes. His goal wasn't just to hang out with my dog.

    Worked. He's been married to a nice lady for ~20 years now that he met with The Hound Of Seduction.
