A six-year term in the military gave me another view of the world, and after getting out I dabbled in various fields to broaden my experiences. The most fun of those was delivering pizza. People hide nothing from the delivery driver, and I've accumulated some fun stories from those days.
My most consistent hobby over the years has been performing massage. For the last thirteen years I've practiced a personalized combination of Swedish and sensual massage. It's a soothing hobby and one that directly benefits others at the same time. Win-win.
** Bonus: I explain my answers to almost all of my match questions. So, that's a good place to learn a lot more about me.
I've got a personal goal to do the full six-month hike of Appalachian Trail once I finish undergraduate school. Would like to get in some 2-week to 1-month hikes each year for practice.
I'm also proud of my ability to cheer people up via quirky behavior, amusing stories, or a simple hug.
Physically: Tie-dyed shirts tend to draw a lot of eyes - though they'll be less common going into winter.
* The Pern books by Anne McCaffrey (Not her son's additions.)
* The Valdemar books by Mercedes Lackey
* "In Fury Born" by David Weber
I particularly enjoy Dragons, Mythology, and Magic in my reading. Pern books are amazing works about dragons and riders, the Valdemar books have magic and morals, and "In Fury Born" combines future space tech with mythology.
No real favorite movies as I prefer to read. Primarily I tend to watch family movies and comedies, and am least likely to watch horror or movies based on books I've read.
Bit eclectic. My playlist might have Metalica, then riverdance, followed by Garth Brooks, then Weird Al. It's completely random and I love it all. I'll basically listen to any music except gangsta rap. That stuff tends to be far too negative overall for me.
* Lasagna (and pasta in general)
* Peach Cobbler
Warm peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream on the side is one of my favorite deserts. Want to share the magic? I have an excellent recipe I'm willing to share (that works with fruits other than peaches).
* Dancing in the Rain
* Stupid Jokes
Camping in nicer weather, movies or game night (board/card/video - whatever), or a meet-up at a casual restaurant where we can chat and hangout for a few hours are all potentials.
(Seriously. Believing that someone is honestly about to tickle me is enough to trigger the giggles as though they had... This has happened.)
* You're willing to entertain the possibility of eventually meeting in person.
(( I mean it. Phones and internet are so impersonal. Such a meeting may never take place, but you do need to be willing to consider the possibility. ))
I'd especially love to hear from you if:
* You have an interest in massage and/or cuddling
I beg you to message me if:
* You have a massive fortune and are looking for a new heir
