I love cats. I think I might have made that obvious by now.
Although I do want children someday, I don't want them soon. I'd rather live and love before I love chaos.
I'm living my life working the job of my dreams with people I adore, and getting paid in the process. My job is amazing and I'm loving every minute of it. It's also very tiring and draining at times, as a significant part of the company sort-of rests on my shoulders; I'm the head of engineering customer support. That is, when customer support can't figure out a problem and need to escalate it to engineering, they escalate it to me.
I'm just a shy introvert with a kind heart and loving mind. I gain pleasure by helping others and routinely attempt to do so. Chivalry isn't dead. I'm more of the kind of person to be more romantic than spontaneous.
I don't drink alcohol due to a number of reasons but I do not mind it if you do. Have fun and drink as you feel. I can be a designated driver.
Just to let you know, I've been fighting a deeply mysterious and frustrating case of chronic pain since January of 2013. There is no known cure, making my prognosis... upsetting. I'm an open book to anyone interested in hearing about it so feel free to ask. The pain is too personal to elaborate on here.
I'm looking for friends to talk to just as much as I'm looking for a significant other. But I am looking for a significant other.
I have always found comfort in writing prose: http://kaedenn.net/writings/wind.html
"My ultimate destination is my absolute expectation of the halting of devastation and granting salvation unto your broken heart. While I wish for this to pass unto death do us part, I know all too well it may happen sooner than that. Even if our time together is brief, I shall be your guardian. I shall be your lover. I shall be your other half via which you desire no other."
-- "Angel", composed on some evening in the first half of September, 2014.
