Let's go on awkward first dates. Let's figure each other out. Let's get dressed up. Let's hang out. Let's brush up against each other. Let's dance, dance, dance. Let's read to one another. Let's play scrabble. Let's open up. Let's come up with cute nicknames. Let's exchange gifts. Let's be dorks. Let's hold hands. Let's go out. Let's stay in. Let's spoon. Let's say things we'll later regret. Let's cry. Let's make up. Let's kiss. Let's make each other laugh. Let's grow into each other. Let's write letters. Let's sing in harmony. Let's collaborate on art projects. Let's explore. Let's thumb wrestle. Let's accept each other's faults. Let's wish on falling stars. Let's go hiking. Let's learn new skills. Let's exchange mix CDs. Let's cross things off lists. Let's fly. Let's shake things up.

I have a ukulele that I can't put down and I play euphonium in a local community wind ensemble.
I also run quite a bit. I ran my third full marathon last July and am training for number four.
*update* A kid at the library I work at recently exclaimed out of the blue, "Mr. Brian, you have a skinny neck!" So maybe I don't have a big head after all, but it just seems that way in proportion to my slim neck. Who knows?

You should know that I have a dog who is amazing, except he doesn't get along with other animals. This makes me cautious when it comes to dating women with pets of their own, but if you think we can make it work regardless, message away!
