Federal job stability / free mind and spirit
I was one of the creative and bright kids in high school who spent most of his time daydreaming and looking out the window. Thankfully, adult life offers possibilities for those with curious minds and imaginations, and I've certainly sought out my share of experience and perspective.
I've been a big fan of travel most of my adult life and definitely seek unique experiences. I like to travel light and move quickly, and am usually successful in discovering things which seem to elude many others. I don't fear much when it comes to travel and it's a short list of places I wouldn't currently visit. While Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Somalia are probably currently off the list, I'd go to Iran, west Africa, Mexico or the Palestinian territories in a heartbeat.
I'm a big fan of garage sales, pawn shops, Craigslist and thrift stores. I buy and sell guitars but also love other items I'll randomly discover, mostly vintage, and I enjoy the hands-on history lesson that comes via the scavenger hunt. I like traveling to new places and seeing their unique offerings, but the second-hand world is always part of my adventures. I've scored some wonderful items, met some highly interesting people and even gleaned some CRAZY stories in the mix.
I have an independent outlook and I place high value on intelligence, devotion and an open mind. I prize beauty, original thought, novel humor and the desire to grow. I live by these ideals, for the most part, and seek them in a woman.
I'm very devoted to people who prove themselves as friends, even moreso to a caring partner. I'm honest, speak as I believe and am pretty comfortable with playing the devil's advocate.
