I’m one of the most open & wholehearted people you’ll ever meet. I enjoy jovial non-intellectuals just as much as intense intellectuals. Do you seek a playmate for hiking, yoga, swing dancing, trampoline gym, skydiving or a cuddlebuddy to enjoy a film with??? Let’s enjoy a moment!!! Be sure and skim my profile to see all the fascinations, smiles, laughs and playfulness we share!!!
I'm winding down a fantastic nine year analyst job in Nashville that completes August. The ensuing 6-12 months I'm indulging my passions, serving in Tanzania this fall, thereafter visiting friends in various states. I couldn't be more excited my passions helping people invest for retirement and social justice that allow me to settle in any metro, so we'll see which opportunities and beautiful souls steal my heart this year!
Life is school. I'm here to learn and laugh! I have a voracious appetite for books, people's fascinating life narratives, and their esoteric knowledge of various domains. It’s a joy musing with uber-inquisitive and well-read friends. I aim to "never be the smartest guy in the room." Nonetheless, I’m not bashful about discussing my own expertise in domains such as social justice and behavioral psychology.
I've amended dozens of pensive blog musings to the Q&As gushing with what colors my worldview. Social justice and brainy stuff aside, Hakuna matata! I'm a chummy, easy to get to know kind of guy...always passionate to contribute some good to something or someone. Friends say I'm "happy go lucky" ducky. My religion is kindness!...I'm a free-thinking dreamer with a starry-eyed/poetic outlook on life...always romanticizing the cosmos and radical compassion for all humanity.
On a serious note. When it said "doing with my life" I had a bit of déjà vu! www.tiny.cc/lifeaims
I'm a really autotelic, self-satisfied, independent person and gravitate to others with a great sense of self-efficacy also. I endorse the following aphorisms:
▬ "We're all dating ourselves everyday...Establish you’re happy by yourself, before sharing it with someone else."
▬ "Happiness" is not a destination..."Love" is not a destination
▬ "Emotionally invest in the experiential process, not a specific outcome." http://youtu.be/W7B_4zGHJQg?t=1m33s
▬ "An attitude of love towards oneself, and happiness by oneself, will be found in all who are fully capable of loving others.."
▬ "You are what you love, not what loves you." www.tiny.cc/adaptation

I believe in reciprocal dating/taking turns and share Warren Buffett's prosperity mindset and ideology regarding conspicuous spending. I love the endorphins and euphoria of novel romantic interests as much as anybody AND a firm believer it takes a couple years to allow that stage to pass before considering greater secure attachments/commitment.
I can be very decisive and my philosophy is "different strokes for different folks" or www.markmanson.net/fuck-yes
