I'm up for exclusive dating if we happen to really click right from the start, but I'm just looking for someone to get to know a little better, who is willing to get to know all of me. I'd like to meet a woman who's not afraid to hold out for a guy she really doesn't have to compromise for. And I don't mean the little things. I'm talking about deal-breakers. We all have a list of them (whether we admit it or not), but I know, and see, way too many people who don't stick to them because they're afraid to be without "the good thing" they currently have. I don't want to live my life constantly putting up with things that I don't agree with or that annoy the hell out of me, just to ensure I have someone to go to bed with each night. And I wouldn't want the girl I'm with to have to live that way either. So if you agree with that, please, do keep reading.
It would be awesome if you appreciate, and are often intrigued and amazed by, the random little things in life, whether it be a gesture, event, an idea, or physical object. Everything, no matter how simple, plain, or insignificant it may seem at first glance, can be broken down to a much more complex level. While sharing this view of the world with you is not absolutely necessary, it would be a huge plus. (a little odd? perhaps. oh well) Hopefully, you keep a very open mind, have a sense of humor similar to mine, and hate driving in a straight line. . . I just couldn't resist the rhyme, haha. If you're pretty much honest to a fault, I understand. I am too. If you care too deeply for the things important to you, but not deeply enough for practically everything else, we're alike there as well. I also hope you don't believe chivalry is dead because, like it or not, I Will always open the door for you. Unless my hands are full. . . but even then I'll still try ;)
In general, do you try to go with the flow? Are you able to brush off 'bad luck' easily and not dwell on the negative? And are you Actually ok with getting to know each other well, before deciding to see each other exclusively? If so, let's talk!
A nice date might include dinner, made together, and a movie. Or perhaps just a long walk where we can share endless random stories. I'm also a big fan of the stars, when they're visible, so just sitting and talking while gazing upon them is always ok with me. Or maybe all of that put together! You tell me.
Now a little more about just me. So I might seem a little shy the first time you meet me, but once I get to know someone, I'm still quiet, but more open. I'd just say I'm a better listener than talker. Though, if you gain my trust and make it into a very select group that is currently only two, you will know me as well as I know myself. A personality test told me I'm an INTp personality type. Though, after reading descriptions of other types, I've found I'm just as much an INFj and ISTj, and the googlable definitions of all three of those (on personalitypage.com) describe me better than I probabaly ever could myself. Don't get me wrong, I have my loud, wild, and fun times, but generally I am very easy going and easy to please. Work, food, and company are really all I Need. And a car, haha. I'd like to think of myself as clever and witty, and I can also be a little sarcastic sometimes. I would consider myself to be better than most when it comes to making people laugh. When I was younger, I was often told I should be a comedian. Sadly, I didn't care too much for being on stage. But I am always trying to make others happy, it makes me happy. And I really believe people should treat others the way they would like to be treated. I think of my friends as family and would literally do anything for them. Among many other things, I enjoy driving, longboarding, playing soccer, disc golf, regular golf, driving, photography, playing poker, rock climbing, camping, and driving. Can you tell I like to drive? haha. Movies are also a pretty big thing for me. I like to watch them for entertainment just like anyone else, sure, but I really appreciate, and enjoy finding, the little technicalities that make a great movie, well, great. The Matrix is, hands down, my favorite movie of all time. Some of my other favorites include; the Lord of the Rings trilogy (as the single 11.5 hour film I consider it to be, is probably, for many reasons, the best all around movie ever made, so far), KickAss, I Love You Man, and Life of Pi. Really though, there are quite a few more that I'd still consider 'favorites'. I also love to cook, especially on the grill, though I know my way around a kitchen too. In general, I am always very observant of my surroundings, but people watching in particular is definitely intriguing. I am constantly interested in what other people around me have going on and I like trying to deduce as much as I can from what others may deem insignificant actions or expressions. For some reason I feel their life must be more interesting than my own, but maybe that will soon be changed. I became EMT-Basic certified in June 2012, and went right into a paramedic program which I completed in November, 2013. Unfortunately I decided that's not what I want to do long term. Maybe it could someday bridge into becoming a physician's assistant or RN, though I think I'd rather go the wildland medic/search and rescue route (somewhere in the mountains preferably). For now though, I'm pursuing a couple other interests. Feel free to ask about them. I enjoy being outside and staying active, but only for a couple hours (negotiable) in the summer, haha. I have lived in the valley my whole life and I've never quite gotten used to the ridiculous summer heat. Regardless, I enjoy all kinds of sports, but prefer to actually play them rather than watch someone else on the tv, as I tend to be somewhat competitive. Even if you wanted to know anything else, I wouldn't expect you to ask, initially. Perhaps we will talk soon.
