Now that that’s out of the way, I just turned 30, and all my friends are getting married, so I need a “plus one.” Really though, I’m glad I’ve moved on from my 20s and the work/gym/club gerbil wheel to get to the point in life where I am seriously ready to consider what I really want out of life, and right now that means a relationship built on respect, honesty, shared values, and comfort with one another. Whether that lasts a month or a lifetime is TBD, but quality of character and personality come before f*ckability, though the latter doesn’t hurt, of course. ;)
I’m a grammar Nazi, self-declared and proud of it, and since I said that I know there will be an error or two in my profile. Please be nice and don’t judge too harshly for it.
I’ve been back in DC for about a year now after a 4 ½ year long hiatus, including two in the Peace Corps and two in New York, but I lived here 6 ½ years previously. As I have gotten back into the groove of DC I’ve purposely surrounded myself with friends and activities that are free of the “mean girls,” and it’s a worthwhile investment. Right now that means having un-self-conscious fun country line dancing at Town, trying to get in the groove with Front Runners, and exploring spheres of the DC gay world that don’t involve sex, clubs, or getting loaded. (Trust me. They exist if you’re willing to find them.)
Outside of a fondness for righteous indignation, I’d like to think I’m an intelligent, caring, and sober-headed guy who’s worth the time to get to know. I enjoy Sunday crossword puzzles, breakfast for dinner, and guys who can properly use a semicolon. Most people don't know I have an extreme soft spot for children and animals; I once attempted to nurse a wounded toucan back to health. Also, I speak 4 languages. (Just a shameless self-plug.)
I've been told I have all-American, boy next door looks, but looks can be deceiving, and no, I'm not Mormon. That picture is from Halloween.
