I also crave intelligent discussions and debate. I live by the maxim "words ought to be a little wild for they are the assualt of thought upon the unthinking". It's not that i'm trying to beat you up with my mind, just that I feel like I learn a lot from different opinions and I really want to understand how you think.
I thrive in nature and am not afriad to get dirty. I like to think of myself as a questionably trained animal. Consequently, i also tend to get along really well with animals. (but on rare occassions, I can rock a suit and tie and impress the upper crust :p
I enjoy lazy Sunday's, well, lazy every days and hanging out with friends. I generally prefer a more intimate setting than the party scene but am not shy about meeting new people.
I can often portray a tough exterior but am a sucker for genuine closeness. Honesty and directness are really important to me and critical to any kind of relationship.
Overall, I am a firm advocate of getting to know someone through experience and less through story telling so if you are interested, I'd love to hear from you.
