I want adventures. I want to be with someone who can share all of my adventures with me. I also want to be with someone that I can sit next to in a lawn chair watching the sun set, drinking red wine, "The Girl from Ipanema"'s playing on the radio, followed by Rod Stewart's "Do You Think I'm Sexy?" I ask "You want me to change the song?" But you're the type of person that laughs and nods along to the song. "Keep it. This shit's awesome. Pour me another glass, would ya?"
We read nerdy books together. Read Harry Potter aloud, watch the movies, and go to the Wizarding World down in Orlando. We talk about your work, about the funny smells that come from your boss' office. You swear that lady's got an allergy to some food, but she's in denial.
We take turns writing songs for each other at an open mic night. We'll flip a coin as to who goes first.
We run after the trolley at Lake Harriet shouting "WAIT!! WAIIITTT!!" After the trolley stops, we catch up, panting. "Oh . . . wait . . . this isn't the bus." And keep walking.
My mind is an ongoing schmorgasbord of ideas. Creative projects, scenarios, showing appreciation, sharing experiences. I want to find that special creative soulmate. Someone who can keep me grounded yet inspired to delve deeper into Life's quirky nuances.
Basically, I'm in it to win it. I'd like to work hard at finding a stable lady, one to settle down with. Being 29, it feels like the right time to look for long term awesomeness. I don't pine for flings anymore. I'm pining for a Jim and Pam kind of thing.
