[1. Bon mot Version]
A sane mind that's crazy for living.
A resilient self that knows when to go to pieces.
A toned body that might be key to playing your tune.
...mild-mannered with a severe wit.
...a mister, not a hipster--but might try to kiss her.
...honest, even if this sentence is a lie.
I like to:
...connect by unplugging
...dress up, when everyone is dressing down.
...strike a chord, since I can't belt a tune.
...devour books, but save an appetite for you.
I believe that:
...Swearing is bad. And just won't give a f&ck about someone who does.
...Talk is cheap. Listening is priceless.
...It's not about the bucket list. It's about who will grab the pail when it's time to put out the fire.
[2. Cliche rich version]
"Works hard, plays hard" "I'm new to this" "Looking for my partner in crime" "Laid back" "Loves to laugh" "Likes to travel" "Down to earth" ... Did I leave anything out? Oh yeah: "Hi".
[3. Traditional version]
I'm a fifth generation Californian, go way back--an earthquake nearly flattened this guy (true story). I do know this state quite well and its storied (ongoing) history of dreamers, rebels, and iconoclasts. And if you ever call it Cali, Frisco, or 'San Fran', my eyes are liable to roll out of my head while I herd your *ss out the door!
I might like "long walks on the beach"...if it's after doing some ocean boarding off Pacifica or Monterey. If you cycle, well alright, you're getting warm. If you like to walk / hike and discover unfamiliar places--local and afar--then you could be getting 'hot', triple entendre mildly intended.
I like to think I'm a man of some refinement, a man who'll cop the lamest excuse to dress with a little style. "Dad jeans" don't know my name! Tux excuse seeker.
I tend to be stable, a mild-mannered type, yet know when to veer off the rails a bit, and still arrive safe but charged from our little adventure. I am grateful for the good fortune, health, and experiences in my life, and the means and time to pursue my interests. Like an interesting gal...
