I could probably use more drama in my life.
I am of the creative type. Not the "write on walls in crayon" type. I am more the analytical, art-director/design-nazi who will spend 2 hours lighting a bowl of dog food for a commercial or fuss for hours over type kerning on my business cards.
My business cards are awesome.
Moment of disclosure: I am currently living with my parents having recently moved back to Pittsburgh after living on the west coast for the last 15 years. The stay is temporary until I buy a house. I have a house selected. I am "PATIENTLY" waiting to file my 2016 taxes so I can include last year's earnings on my mortgage application.
I am a patient person.
As much as I like animals, I am definitely more of a cat-person. If had to say what my dating "type" was, I would definitely say other cat-people.
...but six cats is too many.
In addition to cat-people I find I'm most attracted to smart, independent women who know what they want out of life and have the courage to pursue it. The irony is that smart, independent women tend to want to rebel against the patriarchy that constantly says they're supposed to "get a man".
The patriarchy is overrated and it's days are numbered.
I have done my fair share of chasing. Please be willing to get caught.
I love my work. It doesn't feel like work because it is also my hobby and vacation, but it is not my passion.
My passion is food, I would never taint my passion, by turning it into my work.
In my spare time, I volunteer for Habitat for Humanity working on, fixing, and renovating homes.
I love freelancing. It's a scary life sometimes, but Its the good kind of scary that keeps you from falling asleep in your life.
I suck terribly at meeting new people.
I want to be cremated and made into bricks.
Movies...there are too many. My favorites are Pleasantville, Amelie, Devil's Backbone, Punch-Drunk Love, Death to Smoochy. I still rent DVDs from Netflix. I love a good ghost story.
Shows... Right now I am going through the first season of True Detective... I don't make a lot of time for TV. Looking forward to the new season of GoT.
Music...I listen to a lot of ambient Electronica, Modern Classical, and SEAL. Yeah. Lots of SEAL.
Food...Generally speaking, My favorite things are toasted, roasted, seared, poached, and sautéed. I eat meat. Fresh vegetables are awesome, but I don't touch anything Vegetarian/Vegan if it's pretending to be something other than vegetables.

8. New Math
1). Striking a balance between my inner 12 year-old who wants to explore and play, my inner Gentleman Professor who wants to cook and build, and my inner Neanderthal who just wants to eat and ___ all day.
2). The next time I can have pizza.
Wednesday, I play with my "dolls". If you want to know more, you may only ask in person.
If you can suggest a good place to get a cheese plate with a glass of wine.
You are actually going to put fourth the other 1/2 of the effort to dating...and time. Yeah, I'm busy too, but I make the time.
You want more out of life than becoming barefoot and pregnant, because I can't help you there. ✂✂!
