Hi! I'm Patrick. I was originally shooting for "Careful, thought Pooh," which was my initial attitude towards this site. It only partially fit in the text box, and I now regret my decision.
I'm a marketing consultant--a recent career change. And I'm very glad for it: The grass really was greener, the concrete whiter.
Best to be direct, I suppose--I'm looking for someone to share a life with, in a long-term sort of way. I love making friends, too, happily, which is good because this site is a friend factory, I swear to God. If you want to be my enemy, a high Enemy score is not enough; you have to possess some sort of tragic past that made you this way. I don't deal with one-dimensional characters.
I once was but no longer am religious: I was raised Baptist. I still retain my Baptist friends (and family), however.
I'm interested in rationality, humanism, and futurism. Basically the answer to "Where are we going, really?" I'm addicted to enlightening shifts in perspective. Feel free to share any that come to you.
I'm generally on top of things, but I still have issues with cooking rice or remembering to take the garbage to the curb. Luckily I have roommates who are open to saving me from myself.
