I am known for thinking under pressure & maintaining a positive outlook in tricky situations.
I do value my alone time, but when I get together with someone -even if it's just online- I realize how much I enjoy the people that life brings my way --or is it the people who bring life my way?
I sometimes get mistaken for a pessimist... only because my humor is typically sarcastic.
I love telling stories (mostly true ones), as I've been blessed with many.
If you're a follower of the OKCupid test, I have been re-positioned as the "Backrubber"... Characterized as responsible & ambitious, without the uptight views on relationships --I would agree, except that I acknowledge the work infused in any relationship -short term, long term, friend, or otherwise.
To the charge of "meeting for coffee all the while mostly preferring to screw", well...
I guess I plead no contest -to past transgressions.
There was untaotedly a time in my life when this rang true; but as our past resonates within each of us, it governs only those that allow it to. My own peace of mind stems from having treasured connections with women who's trust I've earned, & easy offers, although not an impossibility, are hard pressed to intrigue me.
Let's just say that if you're not willing to bare your mind & soul, don't bother with anything else.
I guess I'd be amiss on one thing if I did not mention that I do give one hell of a massage. :)
I Grew up in North Carolina. Graduated from U. of Wisconsin: Degrees in Psychology, MetalSmithing, & Ceramic Chemistry.
Spent my "off-time" during college traveling:
Building houses, farms, and gardens for the poor or homeless across the U.S. & in Africa, camping, or touring the national music scene ("...you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right").
