I care about ideas and books and people's rights a great deal, but I hate snobbery and love movies with car chases and things that explode (*Road House* with Patrick Swayze might be my single favorite movie). In October I adopted a dog (just one; there was no choice for "has a single dog" in the details) who is gentle, sweet, on rare occasions over-eager to bark at/romp with other dogs, but really a bit of a wuss and a charmer. What I don't have is someone with whom to share great new experiences, a cold winter's night indoors, a lovely spring evening, the day-to-day of living and seeing where life takes us.
I'm funny (I hope), kind, caring, and open-minded; I hope you are too. I laugh at myself and the human condition generally; I know from experience that if you don't do the same, we'll end up with crossed wires. But I also believe the world can and should be better; I hope you do also. I can be goofy and need that with someone I care about, but I can and do comport myself well in all kinds of situations. I won't embarrass you. I swear. Mostly.
I keep active, eat generally well, and take care of myself (although I'm not a gym rat or so driven by exercise and food-monitoring that I won't indulge and enjoy myself), and I'm built more like a runner or swimmer than a linebacker. So if linebacker is your only type, I am, alas, not your guy.
Please note: If you're racist, homophobic, transphobic, or a bigot in any way, please keep moving. I have zero time for you. And "I love [famous LGB or T person] and I have a gay friend, but queer folk shouldn't have access to marriage" is still homophobic, and your "friend" secretly hates you. Move along.
Also: I am a bit allergic to cats. If you have lots o' cats, or your future must forever have cats cats cats (cats!), it'll be tricky.
