I'm from South Florida originally but I've been in AZ for about 8 years now. Graduated from ASU with a degree in Political Science thinking I'd go into campaigning but it's a dirty world with inconsistent work.
I love talking about serious topics and generally despise idle chatter but unfortunately it seems that a certain amount of that is bound to pop up on dates no matter how hard you try.
I'm not going to lie and say that I'm not shallow. Looks matter to me as I think they matter to everyone. However, it takes more than looks to make me interested in a woman. I am very attracted to intelligent women. Women that are opinionated and loud and know what they like and aren't afraid to say it.
A particularly sick and twisted sense of humor is a necessity as I was raised on the greats of stand-up (Carlin, Pryor, Moore, Kinison, etc). I sometimes get mistaken for an asshole but I promise that most things that sound mean were only said in jest to get a rise out of someone or was a pop culture reference that flew over someones head. Or an insult. I am kind of an asshole now that I think about it.
I'm really a nice guy. I'm not a nice guy just because I think it's going to get me anywhere or get me anything from anyone. I try to be a good person, not because of what it brings to me or gets out of other people, but because I think being nice and considerate of other people and who they are and what they're going through is least you can do to be a good person.
I really just want to find someone that I can talk to first. If we can't hold a decent conversation I doubt you'll hold my attention for very long anywhere else.
I'm just looking for a friend who happens to be female who wants to hang out, watch tv, spoon, and so on.
