You might break a nail or worse....we never meet. Think about it, for all we know we are perfect for each other but by a single keystroke may never know.
In fact, a recent study funded by the National Academy of Sciences established that 85% of all attractive woman who did not read my profile inexplicably gained 10 pounds or more. The study also found that 99% of the woman who met me were likely to smile and stop aging.*
So, now that I have your attention, I will get to the point. Read the rest of my profile and my answers to OKC's questions that are important to you.
If you come away with more impressions that are positive, then negative and there are no fundamental "deal killers", you owe it to yourself to find out more, because what I have written only scratches the surface of who I am.
FYI....Some of my deal killers:
1. Republicans (I think any "moderate" Republicans are extinct or are being burned at the stake);
2. You think the earth is bigger than the sun; or,
3. Organized religion is an major part of your life. What I mean by organized: Every week or so, you go to a building, with lots of uncomfortable seats, filled with like minded people who are there to show of their new cloths. Usually there is a stage with someone wearing a costume, telling some story. If you follow the rules, a few good things might happen in your life. If you don't follow the rules all the bad things you can possibly imagine will totally F%#k-Up your life and afterlife... George Carlin sums it up perfectly in a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPOfurmrjxo).
4. You believe in "creationism" or think it should be taught in public schools as an alternative to the science of evolution and natural selection.
I believe that you will find I am unlike any man you have or will likely ever meet (something I suspect most people feel the same about themselves). I am outgoing, introspective, intuitive, confident, direct, educated, cultured, compassionate, secure, loyal, funny and irreverent. I am also pragmatic and a realist, for me the glass is neither “half-full” nor "half empty", rather 50% of its volumetric capacity is occupied.
I am a great cook, smarter than the average bear, and house-trained (i.e., puts the seat down). I am also the guy you can trust and will always watch your back.
I am monogamous by nature and those relationships have, for the most part, always been my happiest and most fulfilling. However, I do not need a LTR to be happy, but it would be nice to have someone special to share life's adventures with.
I am not online searching for that elusive soul mate, best friend or life partner. To do so establishes a set of hopes or expectations that may be unattainable. I am happy living day-to-day, in the moment, without any expectations from the people I meet or life in general. With no expectations their are no disappointments....only pleasant surprises and I have had many wonderful surprises. I would like to think their are more to come:)
Ideally friendship should come first then nature will take its course. I would like to meet someone who is more interested in the journey and less in a particular destination.
I am upfront and believe in open and honest communication since the alternative is too much work. I try not to blame others and accept the responsibility and consequences for my own actions and expect others to do the same. I try to be a better person every day, learn from my mistakes, and try not to repeat them.
I love meeting new people and will talk to almost everyone I meet. I am often rewarded by the stories people have to tell that will inspire me, put my problems in the proper perspective, and remind me just how truly fortunate I am. Whenever life throws me a curve ball, I always turn to my mantra..."What could be worse"
I try to make everyone I meet smile or laugh and I can always seem to find some humor in every day events and have some fun with it. I think I have a good sense of humor, you be the judge.
Life's challenges have helped me grow, made me more resilient, upbeat, and understand what is truly important. I try not to sweat the small stuff and be happy.
As for all the other stuff: Travel, good food, good wine, swimming, yoga, bicycling, and anything involving the water or outdoors, walking on the beach, sunsets, yadda, yadda, yadda :-)
