If you are reading this because I sent you a message, I know I probably said something I shouldn't have, or in a way I shouldn't have. I hope that doesn't discourage you from responding. If you got past the first part of my self-summary and kept reading who knows you might just like me. We might like each other... It could happen.
I like to get messages, for whatever reason. I know it sometimes takes me a while, but I do try to respond. If I don't, feel free to send a second message, I try not to be an a$$, and I will respond unless I wait too long, then I feel stupid. I will honestly try to do better. I don't know what to expect from the online thing, so I try not to get too excited or discouraged. I feel I must say, If you are very religious we will probably not be a good match. It tends to get under my skin, but I could be wrong, everyone is different.
I live alone, except for my two dogs and cat.
I like ( in no particular order)
6. spending time not working on my house when I should.

14. Trying hard to seem clever on internet dating site...
I did go to university... not sure why exactly... Most who try and guess my field of study get it wrong. It shouldn't be that difficult to figure out. Not sure what that should tell me. I do have a degree. I have the bills to prove it... ugh.
I have a Job, pay my taxes, try not to curse (yes try).
I don't drink, don't smoke... what do ya do? I think that is a song.....? maybe? -actually I do drink, but not often ( I don't think that part is in the song)
I enjoy going out, movies, dinner etc. Yet, I also like to sit at home in the dark and listen to a book on tape (yes I really do). Sometimes I will spend an afternoon sitting at the coffee shop reading a book when I should be working at home. I also seem to spend far to much of my available time falling for women who would/could never love me back.
I tend to daydream.
like I said I don't really drink, only socially. When I go to bars or whatever (?) I tend to hang out but not drink much. Sometimes I will be at the store and look through all the wines. I mostly look at the label art. I also like to go to art galleries and museums sometimes just hang out and daydream. I can't explain, it isn't something I think about in words.
sometimes I can ramble on, and on... and on...
I don't "advertise" what I am passionate about. I tend to keep personal things more private than most. Even here, I am supposed to be giving a self-summary, I am not going to go on about everything I like or do. I believe sometimes people, including myself, pretend without really meaning to. I like to this, and I enjoy that, which is true, but making a statement about such things here can give a false impression. I want to be many things, sometimes seemingly incongruous things. The ideas of what my life would be have always been... nebulous maybe is a good way to put it. I feel like an abstraction, if that makes any sense. I could tell you things I do, what I want from life and try to sound more interesting and clever than I really am. I love books and I am kind of an art nerd. I guess I am looking for... who knows? Finding love online seems... unrealistic maybe? I guess is can't hurt to try, at least not that much. I know and have known many people who have been or are now either married or in "serious" relationships, and I have to say that, with a few exceptions, I do not want what they have. I guess I am looking for something... I don't know the right word... different... maybe... whatever that is. And, yes, isn't everyone. Also, I have no idea what that even means. So, what do I want, what am I really looking for? - Right now I just want to connect with new people, have fun and enjoy life. If we ever get to the point where what I want in a relationship really matters, maybe I will have some idea what that is by then. so for now...
Do you want to drive 4 hours to eat at a restaurant you heard about on NPR?, go to the sick and twisted animation show at midnight?, spend sunday in the park with a book? So do I, it's just so much more fun when with someone.... sheesh! what's up with this guy. he's nuts.
I just want to enjoy my life and find love if I can. A hundred years from now no one will even remember me.
The least I can do is try to really live while I still have time.
