- Raylan Givens, Justified
I was walking down the street last summer and saw a woman talking to a man with a dog. I heard the woman say, "There's nothing more sincere than doggie kisses." And I said to her, "I think Linus' pumpkin patch is way more sincere than doggie kisses."
Well, I didn't say it. But I thought it. That's how my brain works.
So here's some stuff about me: I won't pretend to be someone I'm not, or that I know something that I don't know. I am seldom in a rush because I plan ahead. I believe in learning from my mistakes, and I try to avoid making mistakes that later have to be learned from (which is more wishful thinking than practical application, but it's good to have goals even if they are unachievable at a meta level).
I go to the gym three or four times a week to see my friend the treadmill and my mortal enemy the elliptical machine. I have difficulty ordering at Starbucks because I don't want coffee and the words "Earl Grey" aren't easily visible on their cluttered menu board. I am methodical and logical, yet impulsive. I am not a vegetarian. I like spending time with my nephews/nieces because they are full of energy and make me feel appreciated.
I am serious and amusing, intellectual and bawdy, pragmatic and absurd, introverted and outgoing, sometimes all within a matter of minutes; it's not so much multiple personalities as it is the ability to adapt to my surroundings. And according to the OKCupid "Personality" tab I am both "More Sloppy" and "More Organized" than your average man; looking around my condo, it is evident that the two descriptions aren't mutually-exclusive, so congratulations OKCupid algorithm, you've figured me out.
Here's what am I looking for: a woman to spend time with, who knows relationships are two-way streets, who can beat me at Scrabble, who does not begin her self-summary with "It is so hard to write about myself..." because she knows who she is and what she likes, who enjoys some of the same things I like but who also likes different things because I do not want to date myself. So if a few of the things above or some of the stuff below rings a bell in your mind then perhaps we should hang out and see if we like one another.
