I do not take myself or life very seriously and I deal with adversity through laughter and have the gift to make my friends laugh when life is at its hardest. I say this because it seems like every profile I read says, "I like fun and love to laugh." GOOD! You're not The Grinch! My own personal hangup, I don't date girls covered in green hair. I know... racist.
I'm a romantic, I open doors for people, I like to bring flowers, dress up to go out, I flirt with old ladies (everyone should feel beautiful because they are) and I turn off my cell phone when I'm being social and when I'm sleeping. I also like to pay when we go out. I know! Equality and all that. Call me old-fashioned. And I can't do it every time but the first date is definitely on me so no reaching for your purse when the check comes and don't go ordering your drink before I get there!
For fun? I like to dress up in old-timey clothing and go to events. Drink on my roof. Go out to dinner. Really, anything where there's a possibility for great conversation. I'm totally addicted. I want to go hiking but I don't have anyone to go with. That's the problem when your friends are mostly made up of computer nerds, it's rare they go outside. But we have lovely lily-white skin!
I have been on an exercise kick lately. I want to get into Robert Downey Jr. shape because if I could be half as awesome as him, I'd... ummm... make a suit of powered armor?
I am loyal, a good listener, I believe in great communication, keeping the lines open and try to keep an "I'm ok. You're ok" attitude. You're just fine exactly how you are. Oh, and that thing you don't like that I keep doing! I'm so sorry. I had no idea. I won't do that anymore. Forgive me if I forget but I'll work on it. Can I make it up to you with dinner or sex acts?
I love kids, though I have none of my own. I'm "Crazy Uncle Jon" to my nieces & nephew and all my cousins' kids. I headed to Minnesota for a couple weeks for 2 family reunions and it was so much fun! I spent a lot of time at the kids table. I prefer it there, the adults sit around talking about their colons and interest rates where the kids are all, "I caught a frog, do you want to see it?" "PFFT! Of COURSE I want to see it!" Plus, when you're the crazy uncle all the kids want you to take them out on the jet ski so I get maximum jet ski time. And yeah, I totally let them drive when we're out of sight of the grown ups.
That being said, I am under no delusions that I'm perfect. I sometimes communicate poorly, drink too much, work too much, swear too much, say the wrong thing, stare at your boobs, get egocentric and want to be right instead of being happy. But I'm getting better at catching myself.
Oh, that crinkle in your brow! No, no. Don't be too worried. These are rare occasions. I am an adult after all. The point is, I'm a work in progress and I'm always looking to improve.
Classy, appropriately inappropriate, elegant, goofy, smart, witty, independent, have your own friends, keep me on my toes. Not afraid to ask for what you want, good communicator and hopefully a sci-fi/fantasy fan.
I would love to have someone who is in "the industry" as well but, really, that's not a deal breaker. What's important is someone who accepts me for who I am and that I'm comfortable being uncool with.
"The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone else when we're uncool" - One of my favorite movies. Do you know what it's from? Contact me! And NO GOOGLING!!!
Damn, that got really long... did I mention I can really talk a lot? I'm easily silenced with a kiss.
