I strongly believe common interests are integral in starting communication, but differing interests will lead to growth for both members of a relationship.
I can be really shy and quiet at times, especially when I get around people I don't know. Once I get to know a person, especially knowing what we have in common, I will open up. I'm not a partier. I've tried drinking and I honestly don't get the appeal.
I really enjoy classic movies. I've got a book called 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. It is a goal of mine to see as many of them as I can. I've seen well over 300 of them at this point.
Friends and coworkers tell me I'm smart, nice, caring, funny and kind.
Besides my full-time job, I also have 2 small-businesses. One deals in medical technology and I am part-owner with my two best friends from high school. The other involved the digital restoration of old, public domain books.
I find myself being taught new things frequently. I've done almost every job imaginable at my library.
I'm also good at working with technology. I can usually find my way around a phone, computer or TV without an instruction manual (though I'm not afraid to use the manual if I need it).
I used to be quite good on the cello, but it has been a long time since I played.
Saying the right thing, but phrasing it the wrong way.
Its a little unusual because normally people don't notice me. I had a coworker begin to refer to me as a ninja because she'd look up from a book and I was there. She never heard me or saw me.
Books: Jurassic Park, The 5000 Year Leap, The Hound of the Baskervilles.
I tend to read more non-fiction now, for my book restoration work.
Movies: Lord of the Rings trilogy, films of the Marx Brothers, Alfred Hitchcock films, almost any film on the AFI top 100 films list.
I have a collection of over 400 movies and TV series on DVD.
TV Shows: Leverage, Get Smart (1960s), Mythbusters, Stargate, Animaniacs, Mr. Wizard's World. In terms of contemporary shows, I watch The Americans, Homeland, Agents of SHIELD and several news/current events shows on a regular basis.
Music: There is no rhyme or reason to what I like. I like what I like. Rock, classical, blues, country, big band. The collection of MP3s on my computer ranges from Daft Punk to The Irish Rovers, Rammstein to Bach.
Have yet to find any rap I like, besides Weird Al Yankovic.
Food: Das Dutchman Essenhaus food (never had a bad meal), Rocky Rococo pizza, Cheesecurds
...the future of the country. Being up-to-date on current events is really important to me there are things going on in the world that worry me.
...why do I seem to get more visitors to this profile from outside the United States??
But I'd love to have a reason.
- you prefer quiet, intellectual stimulation over the loud, obnoxious bar scene.
- You feel that time is a more valuable gift that any bauble.
- you feel perfectly comfortable going out without makeup.
- you know the more conventional name for the T-65 starfighter, without looking it up.
