My self-summary let's start:

First, I'll throw out some keywords of things I like. If you see yourself sharing the same likes, then it just might be worth your time to continue reading on.

Coffee. (A morning isn't right without a cup.) Dogs. (They truly are a man's best friend.) Music. (Anything that is good to the ears, mind, and soul.) Literature. Films. Documentaries. (Things that are witty and educational.) Sports, photography, travel, museums, galleries, moonlit strolls, a quiet bar at the end of the night. Beaches, swimming, boating, and making last minute plans. I also like to cook. (Not the greatest, but I think I'm pretty good. At least my dog thinks so.)

I love my dog.
I love my mom.
I treat both with a lot of respect and admiration.

Things I don't like:
Angry people. (C'mon, life is too short.)
Superficial people. (It's not always about you.)
People who think they know everything. (Egos are the worst.)
People who don't like to have fun. (Again, life is too short.)

64% Introvert, 36% Extrovert.
Analytical, kinesthetic thinker
The spotlight is not always my friend.
Anti-planner, pro spontaneity.
A sometimes shy geek and a smooth operator…. that’s approximately me.
What I’m doing with my life
I like to keep myself busy by learning and exploring. I also love to write and have written a novel and several published poems. When I'm not working on something creative, I'm out and about with my dog- hitting the beach, a dog park, going for a hike, and/or hitting a sidewalk cafe. I like to keep my life moving forward and embrace each moment. Life is too short to be mired down by anger, sadness, and regrets.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at making a roomful of children roll over in laughter, losing a sure bet, chewing gum and walking at the same time, and writing stories that never get sold.
The first things people usually notice about me
1. My blue eyes.
2. My genuine kindness.
3. My beautiful hair.
4. My dog at the other end of my leash.
5. My music collection.

Six things I could never do without
The unconditional love my dog gives to me.

My music collection.

My books.

My family

My friends.

A fistful of M & M's.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next story. The present moment I'm in. How can I make the world a better place?
On a typical Friday night I am
Laying low. I haven't met many people yet and so I usually stay home, catch up on some emails, texts, Facebook posts, and hanging out with my dog. I know it sounds profoundly boring, but I know that with the right person, my Friday nights will be sweeter. But for now, my dog is my love and responsibility.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love to cuddle. Yep, I said it. Somewhere in the world there is a guy who likes to cuddle up next to you. Amazing how the simple act as cuddling will whisk all your troubles away.
You should message me if
You're an outgoing, outdoorsy person who laughs easily. If you consider yourself a dog person, then I'm sure we'd hit it off.
The two of us
