I guess the first thing anyone should know about me is that I live by a code. In fact, my code of honor is half of who I am. How you do something is far more important that what you are doing. I seldom give my word because I really hate it when sh_t happens, and I have to break it. I won’t lie to save myself, but I might lie for others if I feel the need to protect them. And I am absolutely incapable of stealing, cheating, or openly judging anyone for anything. (That doesn't count crisis situations. I'm at my best when life is on the line.) My life, especially my professional life would be so much easier if I were a slimy, scum bag, but I just can’t go there. I don’t give false compliments, and when I do compliment someone it’s usually something more observant than just their appearance. Lets see...I have a really, really, really long fuse. It takes a lot to set me off. Also, I think cussing has its place in the world. It seems to me that the closer I am to someone, the more we cuss. Think about it!
The rest of who I am (or at least who I think I am) is more complicated. I’m not a simple man, and unless you’re super intuitive, you’ll never figure me out, but that doesn’t mean that complicated is a bad thing. I am considered extremely funny by my friends and the people I work with. Really! I am! I have wicked knack for personification and sometimes a very dark sense of humor. There are times when I’m just not in the best of moods, venting, pounding out the God’s truth about something, and people are just laughing at me. Insensitive bast_rds...I guess that’s probably a good thing. I’m hardly thick skinned, but on the other hand there are those who would say that I am way too tough for my own good. Probably kind of true...
Finally, I am highly expressive. I’m expressive with my words and my face and my voice and my actions. I am an accomplished writer and songwriter. I am a romantic which works out pretty well, because there’s nothing like longing and heartbreak to inspire a good song. I listen to music all the time (mostly classic rock, acid rock, folk and bluegrass) and when there’s nothing to listen to, I can hear it in my head. I like to dance (although I think I could use some help in that department or at least get to a Red Elvises’ show where I can dance like in the old surfer movies). I love movies, but I can be a harsh critic when it comes to film and literature. And basically, I am an all around good dude, so if I write to you, you should just write back because I’m too damn old to entertain obsession . If anything, I’d love to hear your horror stories about online dating! I swear, someday I’m gonna write a book about this.
If you’ve read this far, I can recommend other authors. :)
Good luck out there!
