I'm not really into most team sports. Football, basketball, baseball... I'll take free tickets or watch a game, but generally I don't care, and certainly don't know stats and players. I'm also not really... conservative, not quite a hipster, or a geek, super athlete, amazingly brilliant, electrically charismatic, or a huge drinker (but I do drink).
I like to read, but I can't keep up with the particularly well read. I'm smart, but a few points south of genius. I'm handy, but I know my limits. I love to cook, but don't like cleaning up.
Live in St. Paul, I work downtown MPLS. I've owned several (very small) businesses and fancy myself creative. Contrarily, I can be a semi-professional procrastinator. =)
Sometimes I say some funny shit. I appreciate sarcasm, but stupid funny is sometimes still ... well, funny.
I value honesty... not into drama or games, I'm open and a pretty good communicator. I'm a fan of East Coast straight-up frankness.
I try to stay positive and my goal is to be happy, but I'm not always happy and not always in a good mood. Life can sometimes be trying and difficult.
But I'm white, middle class, healthy and not living in a third world country, millions have it way worse, so I really don't have any right to complain.
I have officially self classified myself a Meyers-Briggs ISFP personality.
I'm easy going, happy at home reading, watching a movie or TV show -- or out dinners, movies, soaking in the energy of a band. Pretty normal stuff... I like having a few close friends.
I can't say I'm a true believer in the perfect partner. Nothing is perfect. Beauty is in imperfection.
Everyone has a past, and surprise, people aren't perfect either. I'm not perfect you're not perfect. There is no perfect. Never has been, never will be... and that's okay.
You? Looks are important. A connection is important. In fact, everything's important! I'm looking for someone to go out with but can be just as happy chilaxing in. Someone who can get dirty (gardening).
I've discovered that OKC isn't a good replacement for meeting in person to see if there's an actual spark... it's merely a facilitator. And enough with only communicating via IM already.
If you made it this far and think you might be a good fit - apply below. If not... don't worry, there're still plenty of good ol regular Joes on here...
