"Your friend's face will tell you more than a thousand mirrors" or "Cotton/Polyester blend; please dry this cookie on low heat." "The softer your voice, the deeper its impact" or "A plumber moves slowly for a man with so much crack." I often imagine the world from my food's perspective: dreaming outside of myself makes this life a thousand times more interesting.
I like meeting people. I hunt for the good in things. If you give me a smile, I'll do my best to keep it there. I'm always up for a good conversation; looking for an old soul with a young heart.
If you want to join me in any of those (except for the dissertation), everything's better with company.
For example, OKcupid is like:
(for men) ...being in a room full of gift-wrapped presents, with no names on them, most of which you can't open.
(for women) ...being a cat, covered in peanut butter, surrounded by off-leash dogs.
Also, my running form has compelled at least 5 perfect strangers to compare me to Forrest Gump.
Movies: Death at a Funeral, Moonrise Kingdom, Tucker and Dale vs. Evil
Shows: Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, Louie
Music: Simon & Garfunkle, Sam Cooke, "that one song that goes..."
Food: anything whose ingredients I can pronounce (Quinoa - fine. Butylated Hydroxyanisole - I'll pass.)
2) Dogs (their revelry is my philosophy)
3) Sunshine (tied with moonlight, but that's just the sun again)
4) Language (once you learn the game, it's hard not to play)
5) Oceans (for if I forget how to breathe)
6) Cellular senescence (having a Due Date reminds me to savor things)
honest, playful, respectful, healthy-living, curious-minded.
won't do little white-lies, will laugh when the world's being irritating, might play devil's advocate for the people you complain about, will eat the celery next to your buffalo wings, am better at big talk than small talk.
*also: I know you probably get a million messages; I send 20 notes and get maybe 1 response: those are both frustrating. So let's fix that! Message me if you're interested - I will appreciate it, and I'm an open book.
You disagree with this (albeit brilliant) quote:
“The point of dating is just, to keep on dating, and then never stop. It's like burning fossil fuels, or seeing a therapist.” – Schmidt (New Girl: S4, Ep2)
You're half-glad when the power goes out, and all the windows light up with candles; you can enjoy a night without computers, phones, or reality-TV.
