I wish to amuse and be amused (as well as have serious or deep discussions).I am looking for a meaningful connection where we support, understand, motivate and cheer on each other on our various pursuits. I am looking for someone who really does want to get inside my head a bit and who also wants to be really known.
Ideally you would also be someone who is independent and desires some alone time and who has outside interests and relationships that provide fulfillment. You probably do not get bored frequently
I consider myself basically a "nice guy" though I hope maybe a little more cool and creative. I am quite laid back, accepting, and am very good at not letting the small stuff get to me. I am endlessly curious and find more things fascinating than most folks do. I can find interest in most things people would talk to me about.
I am happy doing just about anything whether its outdoor activities, just wandering or people watching, or going to an a destination or event. There are not many places you could take me where I would be unhappy, aside from events involving lots of small talk.
I go to the gym four or so times weekly and have managed to make that into a habit. Sometimes I am really into competing with myself and sometimes it is just a great release, but overall, I find the gym rather dreary (and all too male) and could easily be convinced to share some outdoor exercise as an alternative to some of my workouts.
(B) Shawshank Redemption, The BigChill, Forest Gump, Superbad
(C) pad thai, sushi, raw bar, pomegranates, steak
(D) Musical tastes are extremely eclectic -- I love my Pandora. Most frequently played stations include Bootsey Collins, Parliament Funkadelic, Arturo Sandoval, Disco Biscuits, The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, Avenged Sevenfold, Black Mountain, Buena Vista Social Club, and some Rap (for the gym). At this point, my Pandora stations have spawned so many generations of babies, that I have no idea how to label what I am listening to, and know only that it spans many genres while offering music that has certain similar qualities that I consistently find compelling.
I love NPR and documentaries. I do not have a tv, but easily find myself engrossed when I am in front of one. There is not much I will not join you in watching even if I might not seek it out myself.
-how to create a side biz that will take small amount of effort (after set-up) and reap large rewards
-how the world has changed so much -- and how scary it is that I recall my grandparents saying this
-randomness- for example, why, on trash day, are there so many couches without cushions on the side of the road. Where did the cushions go? Were the owners so mean-spirited that they hid the cushions so that noone else could have their couch for free?
-When will I meet someone who wants to hear my musings?
- How it can be that there are so many women on here that say that they are "always smiling". I am quite sure that I never encounter this proportion of people that are smiling anywhere.
-Whether I will actually poke my eyes out the next time I see "live, laugh, love" in a profile.
So, if you see a potential connection that I might not recognize in your profile, please write.
Also, if I fall out of your stated age range or height range or some other range, feel free to write. I tend to respect the guidelines that are in your profile, so will not initiate with you if I fall outside of these.
You like the idea of going on random drives with camera in hand
You have guessed correctly, that I might need some encouragement to message you. My profile is pretty long, eh? I figure it would give those who read it a good sense of who I am. If you read this and the profile appeals to you, there is a good chance you will be my type (at least in values and qualities). I definitely want someone who is excited by what they have read.
You feel we might hit it off. (Please let me know why you think this.
You are willing to engage me in our initial discussions (ask questions, further the conversation, etc). I spend my days ensuring that discussion is flowing. If this is my role in dating, it's gonna feel too much like work. I promise, if you throw out a conversation direction, I can take it and run.
