Who, me? Just looking to meet some new people, in the hopes of adding a few friends to my life. I try to learn as many new things about the world as I can, so whatever it is you like, as long as you can discuss it intelligently and unpretentiously -- a depressingly rare combo, but let's swing for the fences -- I'm probably interested in hearing about it. I don't enjoy talking about myself, so it'll take me a while to decide what to say . . . but if you don't feel like waiting, why don't you say hi?
One little rant to get started: I take issue with a couple of the little boxes OKCupid has assigned to me, so there are a couple things I'd like to clarify.
1) I'm a little mortified that I'm to be advertized as "Less well-mannered." I'm usually a very polite person -- if anything, over-formal with strangers. I tend to speak very directly to the issues when I'm upset about something. I can understand how a person who's used to being handled very gently might see that as bluntness, and find it off-putting. But my manners? Those are excellent.
2) Actually, I'm very much a planner. What I'm not is the kind of guy who's committed to an itinerary, like we're in a tour group. Sometimes, the things you imagine you'd like doing turn out to be pretty sucky once you're doing them. When that happens, I like to have some alternatives prepared, so I'm not stuck gritting my teeth to endure somethng that turns out to be an occasion of misery. I'm a great planner -- but when new information comes in, I'm always ready to change plans. :,)
I am devilish, probing, and broad-minded
