Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a lawyer by training. I don't identify with that. I practice
yoga and play music professionally...meaning I actually am good
enough to get hired and paid. Just not paid very much. I'm in
bands, but not rock bands. I'm not the Portland indie guy, although
I live three doors away from one of the Decembrists. I go out and
listen to music if it is exceptional......Chris Thile or Three Leg
Torso. I read, a lot, but it tends to be the NYT, the New Yorker,
and maybe a book, and a dozen RSS feeds. There is now too much
prose available for me to consume..thank you and damn you,
internet. I'm a good cook. I'm smart, I stay connected and I'm
pretty good at entertaining myself but still... Change is
Yes, so really, right now I am really into my bands, yoga,
gardening, food and using technology to improve my life. Internet
dating..sure. Ebooks and podcasts...by all means. I'm definitely
not a 9-5 type guy anymore, and Portland suits that. I think I may
be a Portland cliche. Don't hate me.
If you take yourself really seriously, are always 'so busy', and
have no sense of humor, we won't get along...just keepin it real.
And you can't be mean or angry, at least in an unhealthy way. I
realize there is plenty personally and globally to be angry about,
I don't care if you are really beautiful. Beauty is wonderful, but
beautiful women, as a generalization, tend to be mean. You have to
be nice. I'm looking for an honest, mutually supportive
relationship. I will not buy you jewelry just to make you happy,
because it won't make you-or me-happy. And it's expensive. Funky
bracelets and earrings don't count as jewelry.
