For a date, I promise not to cough in your drink, spit in the corner, stare at your boobs (at least not too obviously), or let awkward conversational silences come between us. I did stop drinking a while back, but I am not going to stop you. Maybe I will just be the permanent designated driver.
I have lived all over the US, and Texas and I lived in Australia for a year, but I keep coming back to central Texas. I have lived in Austin, Houston and San Antonio in and out for 30+ years on and off. I have seen Austin grow from nothing to way, way too much traffic.
I like artistic people and I like artists that respect their own work and strive very hard to understand their craft. I firmly believe that perhaps the most important part of being an artist is the ability to take notes, and the ability to act upon them. I have a thousand bits of paper and notebooks full of ideas, and I respect other artists that have the same mess of post-its. Why hang out with me, or even want to? I am a good conversationalist, well versed in the arts and have ideas on both artistic presentation of photography and using photography as an art unto itself, and I know the difference between Monet, Manet, and Degas.
I am low drama, quick with a laugh, and quite the outdoor type.
Disclaimer-*** I am married, to a wonderful person which is something important to mention up front- no surprises, and everything is above board and permitted No drama involved. We respect each other and have been together long enough to know that we are together for life but know that play and friendship with others does not ruin our relationship but rather cements it. I do not want or need to change my situation nor do I wish to change yours. I am looking for someone that is willing and able to meet on occasion. This is more about getting to know someone, see if we click, if there is chemistry and then make this a good fit for us both. I do not play games so if you do perhaps you should not reply. Please hear me here...I am not looking for a one time hookup, one night stand or anything of the such. I am a mature man that is needing some intimacy that has long been missing in my marriage. If you are also married then you know exactly what I am talking about. If you are not married, please do not judge me. This is about finding a friend.
