I listen to dating horror stories from women, and am amazed. To assuage any fears, I have no fear of commitment. I've been married, and hope to be again. I'm not narcissistic, I'm humble, but damn confident. I'm a good listener and a good talker. I'm never boring. I'm also not loaded with issues or addictions. I have a lot of empathy. I was brought up a progressive and a feminist, and I continue to be... not to pander, but because that's what's right.
I'm a comedy TV director/editor from Chicago, but spent most of my life in California (San Diego then LA). Honesty, kindness, reliability, intelligence, and making women laugh until they say "stop" are a big part of who I am. I'm looking for a serious relationship where we can be totally un-serious. And I'm good at keeping a woman fulfilled and laughing. I like women who are funny, optimistic, clever, playful, ambitious, good with kids... and concerned about making others happy. I think that describes me as well. Also I'm kind of an over-achiever in making breakfasts and I don't like to watch sports on TV.
I used to be a drummer (actually played in a lesbian band for awhile) and like to keep up with music, but still have a soft spot for old punk rock. I'm happily divorced with 2 great boys (6 and 9). I am kind, considerate, funny, generous, curious, interested in new things and new people and don't mind a little or a lot of change in life. I'm open minded politically, but tend to lean left.
I may have grown up quite a bit, but there is still that guy in there who did stage dives at a Buzzcocks show in Tijuana and could moon people while I drove. I like women who are a bit like that too. Not crazy... completely sane, but a little wild.
I sometimes wonder if I'd rather hear a story of the time you successfully did not go to Burning Man.
