My self-summary
I am ready for a real connection with someone special. I'm not looking for just sex, I've already played that game.

I am very altruistic, resilient and I don't BS people... definitely plants and animals though

adventurous eater

my empathy is big, as in long and wide. please, get your filthy filthy mind out of the gutter and remember that we're talking empathy.

I tend to come across as overwhelming. what more can I say except that I'm well intentioned.

I don't drink, if you do its fine. I'll go out to have fun 2-3x's a week and I'm looking for a woman of substance to join me.

this moves me for several reasons

Some favorite quotes are...

"changing your opinion is the change of your reality."

"there is no reality except the one contained within us."
-Hermann Hesse-
okok, i just came to the logical conclusion of the Hesse quote in order to write mine.

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
- Robert A. Heinlein-
i'm severely lacking as a human being but lets be honest about this though, the majority of us need to specialize to make that money.

"love does not rule but it trains and that is more"

The six things I could never do without
i COULD do without it all - water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I had to do to get to where I am today and what I will need to do to get where I want to be for the next stage in life.

how people who's lives i idolized growing up in southie, in retrospect are pretty full of unanalyzed psychic pain and how that causes them to act in ways that even they have no clue about.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I overshare haha at times. creating this profile has been very therapeutic in helping me crystalize my goals and in gaining a clearer sense of self though. know thy self people.

saying it upfront: my speech is lethargic from my TBI but getting faster. My TBI left me unable to drive, YET. still making gains walking better on my own. i've had Cerebellar Ataxia for 13 years now and its been a paradox and a balancing act for me both physically and mentally. Our society, through the constant need of being PC has placed some minor barriers in my way while I'm still left with peoples' deep rooted, sub-concious even, biases and prejudices. its ok though, I've hurtled them so far. June 21 into 22, "2016" is my 14 year anniversary of getting beaten into a coma. in those years, i graduated high school, completed college undergrad in 6 3/4 years with a 3.0 GPA, and i went from a wheelchair to walking unassisted during my undergrad. i was in a wheelchair from late august "02" to early january "10" this is a piece of my inner world, the most traumatic piece. this serious and traumatic bit was added to let the women who take this serious know my will is strong, that my drive is vital to my self conception, i won't stop pushing for progress, and IM HUNGRY! i did this to get where i am.
My pace is slower than the average guy my age and because of that I'm a homebody, a sweet-ass homebody though. i know in my bones that its time to find a committed someone to help me to take the inspiration i posses and turn it into action.
You should message me if
on the off chance that you understand that at 31 we all should have baggage and you realize I'm brimming with potential please write.
