I love a proper adventure. While planning ahead for equipment and supplies is helpful, I don't like to have too much structure impeding my adventures. There is a certain flow one can get into that can't be planned ahead, and that is where the gold lies. Where we end up chasing breaks in the clouds for miles and it leads us to a thrift store in the sticks and we end up getting a boom box and a bunch of cassette tapes as well as some home recorded VHS tapes for later. In the cassettes we discover an obscure 80's band that becomes the perfect soundtrack for the rest of the adventure, and on the advice of the kid working at the counter we head to a secret local swimming hole on the river. (Good thing we brought swim suits for all eventualities.). The kids at the swimming hole tell us where we can drive up and put in to raft the river, (good thing we had an inflatable raft in the trunk just in case), and we float this gorgeous new spot with our perfect soundtrack. Dinner at a local hole in the wall, then when we get back we go to relax and watch the home recorded VHS tapes. It turns out to be tons of old Airwolf episodes recorded from TV, and what we never could have guessed is how spectacularly entertaining the commercials are. (This was a great day that happened last summer.). Adventures can happen anywhere, any time if one is open to letting themselves go and living in the moment.
I also love playing with language, a good board game that requires a little skill/knowledge and has a good flow, and good conversation where people play off each other's humor. My friends are brilliant and we often end up under layers and layers of comedy so thick it's hard to breathe from all the laughing. When we get together it usually ends up that the venue is irrelevant because we are engrossed in the amazing conversation that inevitably arrises from having such a high level of personality and intellectual synergy.
I'm looking for someone to join me in my adventures and connection with life. To provide some interesting perspective and humor. To join in and contribute to my amazing group of friends, (and hopefully have your own amazing group of friends that I can enjoy as well.). I'd like to find someone who is confident and independent who wants to be with someone else to enhance their life and share experiences rather than someone who needs a man to feel whole.
I think that people can describe themselves in a profile, and some of these criteria will help to match up people who will possibly be a good fit, (or more accurately it can help you weed out people with deal-breaker qualities), but you just have to get together and hang out to see if you really jive and there is any chemistry emotionally, mentally, and physically. So if any of this is resonating with you, shoot me an email and let's get a coffee. =-). (Low time commitment for the first meet-up and all that.)
