As you may have surmised by this point in the profile, a good sense of humor goes a very long way with me. If you can make me laugh on a regular basis, we can be BFFs for all time; aside from that, I'd have to describe myself as a pretty typical Capricorn (from an astrological standpoint). I have a tendency to be a bit shy and somewhat reserved (okay, okay, maybe that's not "entirely" accurate), but I am very driven and focused when it comes to the things that I want out of life. I feel most fulfilled when I'm working hard to achieve my goals, but that doesn't mean that I don't like to have fun (and being an all around smart ass certainly can be a lot of fun sometimes -- just kidding, it's fun ALL of the time).
My friends would probably describe me as polite, friendly, and tactful. I do have a tendency to expect a certain degree of common courtesy and civility from the people that I associate with (yeah, so no shenanigans). ;-)
I am divorced, so I tend to be fairly cautious when it comes to dating. I like to build friendships first, then see what develops. I will also admit that I'm a hopeless romantic and, ideally, I'd like to find my soul mate--if such a thing actually exists (the jury is still out on that one).
All kidding aside, I am actively seeking a long term dating relationship, but I have no desire to rush into anything. I may be many things, but I'm not impulsive.
I generally gravitate towards people who are unique, intelligent, and creative. In my opinion, "normal people" are rather dull. At the risk of sounding a bit odd (someone please cue Bowie's "Space Oddity"), I will say that I get along quite well with other earth signs (If you're a Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo, or a water sign, we'll probably get along famously). As for ideology, I generally classify myself as "liberal" in most respects, although I am fairly adept in the art of diplomacy.
My passions include: art, music, literature, technology, and history. I also enjoy taking advantage of any opportunity to learn something new. Personal growth and enrichment are fairly high on my list of priorities, so I tend to seek out new experiences when I can. On the weekends, you can generally find me at a concert or out dancing (yup, usually dancing. I still have a few moves).
I genuinely believe that you can learn a LOT about a person by watching them on a dance floor for about 10 minutes. :-)
