Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and
durable happiness there is in our lives.
- C. S. Lewis
I think you just have to meet me. I'll just say that I am kind,
funny (I think and am told), I can read and write, have all teeth
and appendages, a fairly happy existence and am just looking for
some companionship and to see where it might go.
I do like some alone time, too and don't need constant attention.
The flip-side is that I am an extremely affectionate person when I
am into somebody. And I don't argue about the kinds of things that
are easily forgotten in a weeks time. I'm pretty mellow that
I also love my family, though they are mostly on the East Coast in
North Carolina, Maryland, etc. I get back there 3 or 4 times a year
to see them. And, yes, I love my Mom...and Dad.
Love the friends too. Don't have 7000 Facebook friends or feel the
need to have 100 friends in reality. I have enough and keep it
I am honest and don't try to manipulate or withhold. There are no
agendas in my mind. If I see one sneaking in, I cut it loose.
Anyhow I am just rambling now. It's impossible to objectively
describe oneself in a few paragraphs, so I will stop here. :0)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it happily, as much as possible anyway. I don't laugh like
an idiot at all times....but sometimes yes. I consider anyone lucky
enough to have been born has already won the race of a lifetime.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing guitar, piano and drums, watching movies, outstanding
gardener, building anything, cooking (always learning more),
learning something new all the time...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My spider-like physique. Some people say I look like Will Ferrell
but I don't see it. I may act a bit like him though, so if you are
looking for a stoic or some kind of dreamy, quiet bad-ass... good
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't think we'd be reading together, so...
Music I like anything that gives me goosebumps.
I'm learning to make Thai Food.
Steven Colbert, Jon Stewart and The Onion are my favorite sources
of news of late.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Instruments (musical), Family, Sun, Oceans/Lakes (no not in that
order necessarily) and cooking experiments
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to live in the actual moment. People, including this guy, have
been taught sort of accidentally to think in terms of what future
events will look like and/or what the past did look like. This
makes it impossible to enjoy anything in the present. I am
relearning how to think in the present
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing guitars with one of musician friends, playing my piano, out
watching music, listening to NPR and reading or watching movies on
my home theater set-up. I am a bit of an audio buff. Also have a
fireplace and use it whenever it is even remotely cold. And, yes, I
burn wood. "Spare the Air" can eat me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have nothing to hide really, but if I were to disclose anything
private it would not be on the internet. People learn that the hard
way all too frequently.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you have been perusing this human library and NOT sending any
messages because you are tentative about the idea of actually
meeting somebody new. Don't worry. Most people are :>) ...at
least I think so.
