God, I love me a hippie chic...
I prefer to be messaged as many here send out a lot of messages playing the numbers game. I don't want to push myself on someone who doesn't have an interest or waste their time. If I do message you, it means I honestly see potential or that you're 'my type of people'.
I respond to ALL messages. Even if we aren't a good match, if you took the time to put yourself out there, it would be ignorant not to.
I'm here to meet someone for a long term relationship.
I'm open to going out and starting casually but my goal is something more serious. That being said, I'm looking for a good match, a good friend...I've met a few good women here but nothing that said long term. I won't push some that isn't right. 'close' isn't good enough.
I'm a ENTJ for those of you who care or use this as a guide.
I've often wondered if dating online is less about who you are than how well you can write about yourself. I don't think I can really convey who I am as I'm more complex than an essay. Like many, I'm different things to different people.
I'm more than a 1000 word profile.
On the surface, I'm witty, smart, fun to be with, salt of the earth and not easily flustered. What might not be so obvious in this venue is that I'm complex, eclectic, contemplative, passionate, stable, adventurous and nurturing. I'm infinitely patient with those I care about but don't suffer those who are willfully ignorant or rude.
I'm well read and well traveled. When I'm doing what I want, I'm cooking, rescuing dog, reading, fixing something, listening to music, watching something on PBS, helping someone else out if I can. I'm a left leaning libertarian who still believes in gun ownership, personal responsibility and just punishment for crimes. I also believe the government still should 'promote the general welfare' and not just corporations.....a hand up, not a handout should be what is offered to those who need it.
I've done a lot of things in my life, been a lot of places, seen some odd stuff, provided for everyone I could.
I don't need someone to complete me but I would like someone who would hold the other end of the ladder, be excited to pick out a movie because they know I might like it or could accept help with grace knowing how it was intended.
I'm looking for someone who appreciates subtly, when it's appropriate to be inappropriate, knows when it's time to blow off responsibilities and when to buckle down.....someone who is honest yet has enough character not to be brutal. Someone who has my back and knows that I will always have theirs.
There's so much more but I'm sure I've bored everyone to tears...anyway, if you see something that speaks to you, send me a message. I love nothing more than good conversation as I'm a collector of people.
