I believe in giving people respect. The benefit of the doubt. I dont believe in good and evil. I champion communication.
Looking for someone that can communicate, give more than one word answers, is compassionate, driven but not obsessed, can be goofy and debonair, can carry their weight in conversations about culture or science or childhood cartoon programs.
I'm so punk rock that tattoos are too institutional for me. I know the difference between your and you're.
I'm very straight forward and up front. I'm in no rush for anything. I'd like to find quality people to complement my life and however those relationships develop, that's how they develop. One may be romantic and the others simply dinner party buddies.
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. I don't get offended by anything but blatant inconsiderate behavior.
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.
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.
