What I’m doing with my life
I run my own business, it's time-consuming, but a real kick in the pants. I consider it a lifelong dream to start this adventure, in an area that I am so passionate about.
I’m really good at
Listening, offering a shoulder to lean on, photography, cooking, critical thinking, witty humor, teaching, touching, assessing the needs of others on their terms without being pushy.
The first things people usually notice about me
Blue eyes, wide soft smile, soft spoken nature, and an initial shy
demeanor that turns to comfortable eye contact and communication.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Mysteries, Game of Thrones, documentaries, Ken Burns films, Epic dramas like Lawrence of Arabia, Sound of Music, gushy romance, Elf, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Matrix, spaghetti westerns, Million-Dollar Baby, Bridesmaids.Musical tastes are all over the map, including classical, R&B, Funk, folk, blues, and Celtic. My food preferences are also varied. I will eat just about anything, but get a little squeamish about raw fish.
The six things I could never do without
Physical touch, meaningful in-depth conversation, fresh smells of a rain-soaked forest floor, Beethoven's "Emperor", friends & family, and an inner spiritual connection to Earth.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
.... How I could always learn more to help the people I work with. Then there's "how can I get my work done" so I can go out and play? :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Meeting friends for dinner, going to a movie, or sometimes laying low with a good book or a Netflix selection, saving energy for the weekend!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I'm not a night owl, and I've been teased about starting to
fade by 10 PM. I'm an early riser, enjoy watching the day begin
You should message me if
...you place a higher value on life experiences and connecting with
others, compared to materialistic "things", are looking to spend
time sharing a meal, sipping tea, going on a hike with someone who
enjoys meaningful conversation, good cuisine and witty humor. If
having a healthy lifestyle [decent diet, exercise, not smoking] is
a priority, great. If not, I'm not your kind of guy.
