I am a geek who is a little eccentric and definitely a “character” but I will never embarrass myself or others. I don’t take myself too seriously. My sense of humor ranges from being a sarcastic smart-ass to really dry wit – but I never use my humor at the expense of another person.
I tend to be a little introverted in very large crowds as I prefer talking with other people either one-on-one or in a small group. I am fortunate to have a few very close friends who are my family. Those who know me best would describe me as very down to earth and a kind person with a big heart and sensitive. I am not pretentious and I do not judge other people.
I enjoy talking about politics and world events as I’m a NPR/BBC junkie. I am politically/socially liberal and very open to new ideas and ways of thinking. I genuinely believe that people have the right to their opinion although I may not agree with what they believe.
I’m really good at listening to people. I do not mean just hearing a person talk – I mean really listening and understanding the importance of what someone is saying. If I am asked my opinion or perspective, I do my best be bluntly honest and tactful at the same time.
I’m something of a rarity in Raleigh as I am a native of North Carolina. I am originally from the Asheville area and attended Appalachian State in Boone. People tend to notice my Southern Appalachia accent.
I enjoy Sci-Fi, Drama, Comedies, Horror, Documentaries….
I like a wide range of music: Orbital, Bach, Techno, Moby, Johnny Cash, Beethoven, Industrial, Jazz and Blues, Ray Charles, bagpipes, Pop, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Dave Mathews……….
I enjoy a diversity of food and I am willing to try any new food once. I also really like to cook!
What matters is that you are a progressive thinker, down to earth, want to share new experiences, and enjoy good ales or a glass of wine.
