decent, and not completely boring, not all of us are taken, so relax,
you too can settle! No longer will you feel left out when your
friends are gathered together and bitching about their significant
other's many faults. You can finally give up on those dreams of
meeting the perfect man and feel all that stress just slide off your
shoulders. Soon you will be able to take on the role of overbearing
mother and place all of your personal failures on the shoulders of the next generation...right where they belong. So drop me a line and we can get this train wreck going.
If I had control over this place now is when I would be firing off fireworks and frantically waving my hands to signal the marching band to commence playing something enthusiastic and inspiring. Here in these opening bits of my profile is where I need to grab your attention and make you think "who is this man and why has it taken me this long to find him?" Alas, I don't have any control over the site beyond my profile, and even then I am forced to rely on boring old fashioned words, not a single human cannonball, laser light show or even a cage of doves to be released on cue. Being left with naught but words and ten pictures it is difficult to truly display the incredible majesty I bring to the table. Yet for the sake of you gentle reader I shall endeavor to use these "words" to try to capture the unfathomable mystery that is I.
In the beginning I was born, not to imply that this is where life, the universe or general existence started, but merely the point where I entered the scene. I hate to say this but I started this turn on the wheel in a rather diminished state, naked, screaming, surrounded by strangers, and completely unable to fend for myself(kind of like a couple parties I've found myself at). For almost two decades I was cared for by some nice people with the odd nicknames of Mom and Dad. They were good enough to take me in until I was able to pay rent, gather enough quarters to use the laundry mat and buy my own Ramen noodles. With time I found better employment and was able to begin buying food other than Ramen I even moved out of the decrepit disaster of a house my friends and I chose for our first non-parental sponsored home. Years passed, and many is the apartment that I stored my piles of ragged paperbacks in, while I moved from employer to employer until at last I found something that paid well enough to negate my need to constantly seek out a livable wage. The next eight years of my life were spent working the graveyard shift in CAT Scan at a trauma center in Boise, ID. Who knew that getting massive doses of radiation, while holding down profusely bleeding patients and yelling at them to stop moving was a job? It seems that watching people die on a near daily basis can be a bit of a downer after a while, so after eight years I packed my bags, cashed in my vacation time and moved to Seattle to try out a new existence. Almost six years have passed and while the new city smell has worn off I still love the Emerald City and am glad to call it home.
Like so many people that choose to live in the Pacific Northwest I am a big fan of camping, backpacking and the great outdoors. However over the last couple years I have been spending progressively less time in nature and more and more in the city. It isn’t that I have lost my love of the woods, and mountains, but as I get older so do my friends and it gets difficult to arrange times when we can leave the streets and hit the trails at the same time. It is much easier to simply meet up at a pub or music venue for a couple drinks and then retire to our own homes when the evening comes to a close, AKA they boot us from the bar. I love live music, and cheap beer, I like good beer as well but have to be much more circumspect in imbibing it as with the passage of time hangovers have gone from a slight hindrance to be mocked, to a debilitating smack down from the God of moderation. I think board games are awesome, however I lost the group I used to play with when my oldest friend and his fiancé went separate ways recently, so if you like to play, hot damn. I read books like they are going to stop making them…which is kind of ironic since I now only buy books for my Kindle, thus I guess it is alright if they stop making books as long as people still write them. Should I now say I read ebooks like they are going out to stop writing them? I am not a big fan of travel, I know that is practically blasphemy to say in Seattle, but it is the truth. I am also not a sun worshiper, overcast, rainy days are fan-freaking-tastic!!! Clear blue skies, I will likely stay in until the glowing orb in the sky bids me a good evening. I do go out in the day I am not a vampire(despite what my friends say), you will simply never see me with a tan. One of the many things I like about Seattle is the fact that I no longer need a car to get around and have a life. Due to lack of use I gave my car away to a friend in need of it a little over four years ago and have never looked back! I am always up for a party, bar crawl or really just about any excuse to get into a costume, or to just dress up nice. I have several large boxes filled with costumes, four tuxedos(of wildly different styles) in the closet, and just about any reason to dig into the seldom used section of my wardrobe is one I embrace with bells on...sometimes literally.
I am not looking for a fling, or something casual, I am tired of playing the field, and hate games. I am looking for someone that wants more than just a warm body to give them validation, or a "Daddy" to take care of all their problems. I am searching for a companion, a partner, a playmate, or as the cheesy yet fun song says "a part time lover, and full time friend". Robert Heinlein said "Love is the state where the happiness of another is essential to your own." I know that doesn't really sound very romantic, but to this day I haven't ever found a description that seems to sum up love better for me than those words, and that is what I am looking for. If any of this sounds like what you are on this site in search of, I would love to hear from you, if not, I wish you the best of luck on your search!
