My optimal search includes someone who is ambitious, likes to have company, enjoys dressing up for a show, and has big goals for their life.
But that's not all:
Occasionally, as a child, I sold: wax candles shaped like fruit, calendars, and assorted bulk candies out of Tupperware containers walking door-to-door all over St.Charles County. I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed as most of my ex-girlfriends will begrudgingly admit. I am an expert in Ramon noodle cuisine, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Illinois depending on your definition.
Using only the space in my bedroom and my wit, I once convinced my parents to take FEMA money and house a displaced family in it during the devastating flood of 1993. This decision both increased our family's revenue and saved another family from extreme hardship. I only mention it, because soon after, the entire neighborhood replicated the idea and the one lady married the neighbor, so I'm responsible for their children's lives. I should also mention, that I always let people merge onto the highway.
I was, for a short time, a sponsored skateboarder. When I'm bored, I redesign car interiors, and install home and car stereo systems. On a random day one summer, I looked out the window and watched a tree fall on my car for no reason. On Wednesdays, after work, I go to the local university and tutor underprivileged youth. I am an abstract artist and a concrete analyst. This December, I'll be finishing my fourth degree. I consistently find myself trying to find ways to call people by their first name in public service- it's just the right thing to do, and I think it makes them feel good.
I have been caller number nine, and I have called into late night conspiracy talk radio shows and actually solved the conspiracy. Last summer I met a guy who looks exactly like me. Turns out, he is an adopted biological brother my mother never told me about. When I was a teenager, I would collect people's lighters and catalog them with the name and date of the person. I'm writing a book about the methods by which I'm returning them, and how the people have changed; now twenty years later.
My uncle who is a hunter invited me up to the shooting range a couple years ago. I out-shot him and all his buddies. Having never before fired a shot, they never invited me back. Speaking of weapons, another time, I successfully negotiated my life from a man who was holding me hostage with a knife to my neck. I have been held hostage twice, a second time by a man in a classroom with a gun. I won both times; although regarding the second time, I had to later paid his library fine based on a book he lent me previous to the hostage situation. I feel like it's my responsibility to keep my word.
All of my bills are paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I take accredited university courses. One summer, after awaking from meditation, I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down, because I was distracted by the cuteness of a kitten. All I remember is the word "When," which leads me to believe the meaning of everyone's life is a nebulous idea or event in their future. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only venison, Ramon noodles, sweet tea, and ginger.
I've run political campaigns, I've driven ambulances to emergencies, I've performed CPR, I've disassembled pinball machines, I've taught high school foreign language classes, I've played the leading roles in musicals, I've won middle school level spelling bees, and I've designed corporate information factories. I'm currently awaiting a decision on being academically published in the area of data architecture. I can freehand draw a nearly perfect replica of a Mercator map of the world.
All of my possessions can fit into the back seat of a late-model import sedan.
House of Cards on Netflix.
Everything from pharcyde to radiohead to Chopin.
I like doing something interesting or different going out for dinner (outside the normal Americana).
