Hey I'm Nathan, but you have to call me Dragon.
This is fairly long but I'm told it's a good read.
If any of this resonates with you please send me a message.
What I'm looking for is quite simple. Finding it however has proved quite difficult. And I don't want to be just another guy waiting in line.
I'm not on here to get laid. It's sad that there is a need to point this out right away. Physical contact is something that may come in time. I prefer getting to know someone first.
I look at online dating with a mildly skeptical view but I am aware that good things are possible. As of late it has become exceedingly difficult to find someone with whom I have both emotional and physical chemistry. So I see this as another avenue to explore. I still prefer to have relationships develop organically. And if you're like me you don't want to be on a dating website forever.
It seems crazy that I can't seem to find many people who are cool, and think that I'm cool, and just want to be awesome together.
*** I'm also looking for cycling friends. I like riding alone but having someone to cruise around the city with and take day trips with would be awesome***
Things about me:
I adhere to the basic philosophy of not
being an asshole.
INTP if you're into that whole thing.
When I was little I wanted to be a transformer.
I really prefer to travel by bicycle whenever I can. Even in the cold, dark winter.
I'm not part of any particular sub-culture.
Appreciator and practitioner (hobbyist) of the arts.
ALL THE ART.
I'm not a serial killer or a sociopath. If I were a gummy bear I would be a cannibal.
I don't get the whole mustache or bacon bandwagons.
I would like to go more places but I hate driving on highways. Need a road trip companion? I make pretty killer mixes.
Outdoor enthusiast. Seriously most days I would much rather be outside doing something but given that I don't have much natural insulation there is a love/hate relationship with winter.
Friend of the animals. Domesticated and wild. Unless something messes with me or has the potential to severely injure me I'll do what I can to cause no harm. On this note you shouldn't kill spiders unless they really have it coming. Them looking weird is not a valid excuse. Imagine how you look to them.
I've been told I have interesting if somewhat cynical perspectives on things.
I like to think of this as a positive. Blind acceptance is plain silly.
I'm a smart cookie without documentation.
I don't believe everything I read or hear.
Critical thinking is a virtue.
I do my best to live in the moment.
I enjoy competition but rarely watch any sports.
I'm all that and a http://www.styleapple.com/public/uploads/laart/Vector/d2a94147612f60846de235d99cf0f2cd.jpg
Quotes from friends:
"Genuine comes to mind."
"Smart, Artistic, Easy going."
"Interesting in a good way."
"Fortress of Solitude."
Here are some traits that I would admire (not mandatory) in someone I would want to date.
Being the right kind of weirdo.
Someone who cares about being a good example for humanity.
Someone who is active but understands the glory of being lazy sometimes.
Someone artistically inclined. For the ability to have conceptual ideas/discussions. Also for mutual arts and crafts time.
Someone who doesn't read into things to an extreme degree. It is important to have open communication .
Someone who is cool with personal time. Not always thinking that not calling/texting all the time means you don't care or something is wrong.
Someone who has the ability to laugh at themselves. We all do things that should make us laugh hysterically.
Humor is a cornerstone.
Someone who is cool with eventually being a little spoon.
Someone who knows the virtue of loyalty. I'm by no means overly possessive, but if I'm dating someone exclusively I'm not going to do something stupid to jeopardize something good. Neither should you.
And physical attractiveness matters. Well.. we should be attracted to each other if we are going to date. This doesn't fall within any particular guidelines.
