I'm also pretty cool though, or at least that's what I've forced myself and others to believe. I can dance, play several instruments, and am pretty much a rock star, just the sort that no one knows or cares about. You know, like wheezer before the whole hipster thing.
I'm a bit over-educated (I've been messing with grad students since High School), but have not finished a degree. I will one day, but for now it's just a sheet of paper that takes more time than my job will allow. I still read like an academic, but I'm a journalist and writer for the time being.
I want someone to help me grow. We never stop growing as people and I'm tired of pretending I don't need help or that I'm going to find some girl that doesn't need mine. I'm good at comforting, too good in fact, and this has lead to a long string of relationships where I'm basically a therapist. I need someone who is willing to grow with me and into me.
I work from home, but travel a lot. I need someone who's independent, and doesn't mind being left to do their thing while I'm on assignment. I write, and need someone who can help me manage the business side of that, if not share in it. I'm an Orthodox Christian, and need someone who can help me keep the faith, but believes the guy is the priest of the household whenever he's not too busy being a heathen. If you fit into the above, I very well might want to try for something more.
For now I'm fine with just taking things in and getting to know people, but I think I've finally figured out what I'm looking for in a girl, and I'm hoping I won't have to wait too much longer to find her.
Basic facts: Former Military, planned career in Philosophy of History, and I like a good strong single malt scotch to diffuse the anomie of Western Civilization. I'm also a bit old world, so if I get your chair for you don't be alarmed, I revert to that when I'm nervous, which I probably will be even if I don't show it. Pretty faces can be a bit inconsiderate about flustering me. I don't blame them. It's what they do.
