Some who know me well might say I'm a sometimes disillusioned idealist, and others might say I'm a closet romantic at heart. I prefer to think of both as aspects of being a crotchety old fart, something I've been for about 30 years now. Except I have no lawn to shoo teenagers away from.
I'm looking for a partner in crime. No, really. I mean real crime. I have these plans for world domination, and Pinky recently left me for some dude from Mars named Marvin who wears a silly green helmet and is constantly failing at making earth shattering kabooms.
OK, actually, I'm looking for someone who groks me and I grok her. I can say someone who has a great sense of humor, but just about everyone has a great sense of humor - it just doesn't always jive with others' senses of humor. For my part, if you're into Monty Python, Eddie Izzard, South Park, The Boondocks, or Princess Bride, you and I have the same taste in humor. If you're into Jackass, most Will Ferrell (Stranger Than Fiction being the notable exception) or Farelly brothers movies, we probably won't click. Although my best friend is a hard core conservative, it'd probably be best if you are a raving lunatic looney left wing liberal like me. If you enjoy alliteration, all the better. I like strong independent women a lot.
If you contact me before I contact you, that's a huge "Holy Cow! She doesn't fit some predetermined pigeonholed classification and isn't afraid to start some conversations! She must be pretty cool!" Basically, it's not necessarily a turn on, but it certainly attracts my attention.
Well, unless the message is, "You have some fuzz in your hair." Then I want to just write back and say that was intentional and then block her with impunity.
I don't have any kids (other than the 4-legged kind), but it's OK if you do, or even if you want more.
