I can be very social and outgoing at times, but other times I enjoy being by myself. I don't always need people around and surrounding me. Sometimes I can be a bit of an introvert. Contrary to popular belief, it's not a personality defect.
I'm a passionate individual by nature and that's reflected in most everything that I endeavor. I am an educated guy, at least that's what my college diploma implies. I'm empathetic, warm, and have been told frequently that I'm easy and comfortable to talk with. I enjoy meaningful, intellectual conversation, but also enjoy a playful conversation riddled with innuendos. I thrive on vigorous discussions and intellectual intercourse.
I am generally agreeable and I highly value integrity and respect. I firmly believe that trust is earned and not given. Though, it does take time for me to completely open up, but when I do, I give it all that I am worth. (Which according to the U.S. Bureau of Chemistry, the monetary value is $4.50. This value is, however, subject to change, due to stock market fluctuations). I have a great family, and wonderful friends with whom I am very close. I have 5 friends on MySpace and waiting approval from a sixth! Those close to me consider me a true friend - caring, supportive, trustworthy and very, very reliable.
Being open minded is something of value to me, therefore I enjoy trying new things, and am up for most adventures and escapades. No, that doesn't mean I call my "crew" and "hit" a bank, casino, or shake down Amazing Superstores. It means I enjoy a wide variety of activities and distractions such as, but not limited to: horseback riding, snow skiing, beaches, hiking, movies, casino atmosphere, sight seeing, music, cooking (I use to be a chef at an Italian restaurant), nice dinners with great ambiance, a good martini, comedy clubs, concerts, photography (some of my work is in my pictures section), Vegas, drive-ins, and traveling to name a few. But, in my opinion, I firmly believe it's more about the company than the activity. Though, on certain occasions it's about both.
I've traveled all over the USA and abroad. I've lived in Florida, New York, Rhode Island, and have spent a great deal of time in Georgia, Nevada, Michigan, Ohio, and upstate New York.
I am drawn to warmth, creativity and intelligence. I enjoy a great sense of humor and a playful personality. I tend to have a sarcastic, and dry sense of humor.....combined with a cool, dry wit. Yep, I'm sure that this combination has offended a few along the way. After all, you can't make everyone laugh.
I am genuine and mean what I say. I have a keenly observant eye, a rapid thought process, am laid back, have a positive outlook combined with a healthy sense of irony, a big heart, and I am good natured. I am many things to many people. Yes, yes, it's all a rich tapestry. You don't have to be a star to twinkle.
I am looking for a gal that is funny, honest and is not afraid to share what is on her mind........ Not afraid to share what lies beneath the surface. Honesty and loyalty are important to me, and as I honor that most, I would expect you to do the same.
I am looking for that balance of smart, sexy and fun. Yeah, what guy isn't looking for that combination?!
OK, that was quite a lot of information about the traits and characteristics that summarize who I am. Are you picking up what I'm throwing down?
