My self-summary
Firstly, "Fun is the best thing to have" (Arthur; 1981); secondly, my name is Kenneth Smyth...now you can find me on Facebook. Hooray! Thirdly, like most people, I exhibit a wide gamut of human emotion with a preference for jesting and joking; that is, I like to laugh and playfully tease. Conversely, serious discussion about current events is also one of my favorite pastimes. For example, I feel it is important to critically analyze the tools and technology, which shapes and configures both ourselves and our society. In other words, we should always question that which we are told, that which we are given, and that which we construct.
I've a strong liberal political affiliation, though I don't attempt to force these beliefs on other people.
In summary, and again, like most people, I'm "looking for someone who can both laugh and be serious." However, these descriptions are problematic due to their vagueness, as it is not clear which subjects one acknowledges as warranting serious attention or about what one like's to laugh. These subtle details can only be realized through primarily face-to-face contact and conversation (i.e. dating and fraternizing).
