I like to think of myself as being pretty deep. Your basic "Riddle, wrapped in an enigma, trapped in a conundrum, and dipped in dark chocolate." And, I suppose, to an extent, I am. I have a lot of interests; several things which appeal to me, and a constant desire to learn more. I'm in touch with my emotions, capable of talking on an array of topics (and not sound like a total goof), capable of bullshitting on several others (and likely sounding like a total goof) and, in my opinion (which is clearly biased), worth getting to know.
But, chances are, if you're reading this, you probably want to know:
a) what am I looking for? And...
b) what do I have to offer?
(Please fill in the circle with a #2 pencil.)
Let's start with a). I'm a little bit selfish--I want it all in the right person. Intellectually, emotionally, and physically stimulating. I believe that far too often, people settle. I don't want to settle. I want someone that makes me happy, and who I can make wonderfully happy. I want others to see us and to think we're insane because nothing can pry the stupid smiles off our faces. And, I want someone that's ready to meet someone, ready to fall in love if everything is right. I want someone that knows they want more in their life, and hopefully that more is me.
And now, the other side--what do I bring to the table? Physically...I've never considered myself better than average, though I know I have a lot of above average qualities. I have nice eyes. I think I have an attractive voice (though it was better when I still sang). I have nice hands (I'm very tactile) and while I consider a work in progress, the gym has been introducing me to the body I always wanted to have. (Protip: ab workouts suck.)
I love going to museums--science, art, history, whatever. Back when I still had cable, I probably spent as much time on the History and Discovery channels as I did watching some movie. I can spend hours at Barnes and Noble. I'd probably get a second job there if the net result wouldn't be my working there for multiple hours to pay off the book fix. I can walk into a room filled with people I don't know, and generally be comfortable within a few minutes (your family is not likely to scare me--I've seen WAY worse).
Emotionally, I'm sensitive, bordering on empathetic. Oh hell...who am I kidding...I suck in other people's emotions. Arguably one of my greatest strengths, and biggest weaknesses. If there's a problem, I like to talk about it. (For those scoring at home--talking does not include throwing a frying pan at me.) I remember birthdays,anniversaries, and the kind of ice cream that someone likes. I love kids, am good with kids, and very much want to have them. Surely I've left some things out....ask? I'm pretty good about answering questions.
