Here are some thoughts so you get a sense of me. If anything strikes you, let's chat about it. I realized this sums up my perspective on life; I was walking down the stairs of my office a couple weeks back and realized one day I won't be able to feel anymore. And how much I've been wasting my sensation of touch. So I put my hand out and dragged it down the plaster wall, just to feel it and be in that feeling. Its interesting how amazing a plaster wall can be when you put it in the right context.
I'm a "yes, and" not a "no" man, you know? I have a strong ethical streak, so pick your idiom; "I will move heaven and earth to get it done," or "I'm just an ant derermined to move that rubber tree plant."
I'm so punk rock tattoos are too institutional for me.
The best relationships I've had were with well adjusted Brits. As well adjusted as a Brit can get ;p that brisk outer shell and thick skin works well to get through life.
It seems an entire generation has gotten ass backwards about dating. A relationship isn't a job interview or a recipe. So leave the lists at Safeway. Dating is about getting to know other people and some connections involve sex and romance and some involve good company.
Life feels like one big episode of the simpsons, or for you upstarts, arrested development.
Sometimes you can find me bellyaching, cheeks sore from laughing funny. Sometimes I can leave you scratching your head, but most the time I just make "dad jokes" :)
Which brings me to... I can now liken myself to a celebrity, namely judd aptow... since dad bods are in. (Does it still work if you're not rich and famous?)
I give everyone the benefit of the doubt when they say something, because I have made a joke or comment that came out wrong. I look at how people treat me and behave to truly know them.
For instance I like to buy subway subs and with a fistfull of sandwiches, hand them out to the homeless in san jose I can easily pass on the sidewalk. But sometimes they dont take the sub because they think the government poisoned the meatball marinara.
The other day while I was leaving the gym a guy hard on his luck started talking to me and I gave him a few minutes of my time because I could tell he hadn't connected with another person in a while. In the course of conversations he mentioned he had ran over his headphones with his bike. I realized I had some headphones on me that were only like $4 so I gave them to him.
These are the things I look for in others. You may put your foot in your mouth but with patience I'll learn what kind of person you are and what you mean. You dont always have to be cool, calm, collected.
I enjoy a great sense of humour but not everyone has one. So I'm working on not pulling mine out till I have a better idea of how touchy you are. :) so if I seem dull, im just being judicious. Trust me I'm not dull ;)
few conversation starters if you decide to message me:
How long would you last, realistically, in Jurassic park?
Men are more emotional than women and humans are designed to be monogamous, what do you say to that?
Batman is actually an inmate in Arkham Asylum and his rogues gallery are hospital staff.. Discuss..
If you could touch and feel one last thing before you lost the sensation forever, what would it be?
I am originally from Michigan and I'm more relaxed than most northern californians. I dont mind if strangers say hello to me and I'll talk with anyone about anything just to chat. I laugh at myself and find the black humour in most situations.
I also don't care if you're physically active, physically fit, or "attractive", the sexiest thing to me is a personality that can connect with mine and shines through from inside. I don't have a type and find many different women attractive in various ways.
I love learning, and have a continuous drive to fill my short life with as much knowledge as humanly possible! People are more important to me than places or things. I am much happier spending money to make others happy than on myself. I am above all else considerate and that is the single most defining characteristic I look for in others. There are two types of people in this world, considerate or inconsiderate.
