When given a chance, people enjoy my company. Many are also often shocked by how very openminded, candid and devious I can be. I am a very sympathetic listener. You will be amazed at how fascinating you are.
I am constantly surprised that people consider some pursuits somehow unsexy. I don't get why D&D, a love of game shows or collecting maps supposedly dooms guys to a virginal life in their parents' basement. Having interests in life is a good thing.
My path has not been a standard one. I was an electrical apprentice for a few years (to everyone's dismay). Now, admittedly becoming a construction worker was not a complete success, but that had more to do with the social structure of the work than me. But most of my coworkers came to respect my work ethic, and I did learn skills that were very unnatural to me. I'm glad I tried skilled labor; I can still wire up a light fixture faster than anyone I know, and learned a lot about what I can do if I push myself. I also have put in time at graduate school and working as an administrative assistant. It's been an interesting journey.
If I'm in a playful mood I am not afraid to make a fool of myself. My favorite color is red, and I am not above singing in public. I don't mean karaoke either. I mean in the hallway.
I am tolerant, sympathetic, and a work in progress.
