I'm looking for someone whom I can relate to and connect with on a deeper level then just simple physical attraction. I tend to take longer to develop a relationship then a lot of people. For example: you likely won't be getting kissed at the end of the first date. A lot of girls misread that as timidness, but to me, it's just the natural progression. It doesn't mean I'm not interested, or that I'm too shy, it just means I'm not a man-whore. In my mind, Intimacy isn't something to be thrown around. It has to be earned. That being said, if you really make a great impression, who knows.
I'm fiercely loyal to my friends, family and significant other, and expect the same in return. I like to listen to, play, and record music - I used to be a studio recording engineer professionally, but I needed a life outside of work, which that job didn't allow, so I left that behind and moved on. I've played in bands (guitar, bass, keyboards, dabbled in drums), and I have an eclectic taste in musical styles everything from Peter Gabriel, to (hed) P.E. ... James Taylor to Tower of Power... Alison Krauss & Union Station to Skinny Puppy.
I love to spend time outdoors, going kayaking, hiking, camping, or just laying in the grass in the park or backyard. I have a constant desire to create/maintain/improve things... which I vent through landscaping/gardening, creating new software, making graphics & html files for work advertisements, and woodworking is an interest I'm starting to pick up on... right now I'm fleshing out some ideas for speaker stands and an audio desk / workstation.
I own my own house, car, pets, and hold down a steady job that pays for it all. Now I just need someone to share it all with.
