**Don't let anyone know, but I'm learning to like it here (even if I sometimes feel akin to the Fox in Kipling's "The Little Prince").**
Swashbuckling: (I never feel more alive than those moments when I'm teaching fencing to my students... and not even a full credit report can reveal more about a person's values, desires, intent, and self control, than facing them as equals across bared blades for a few moments. Truly a sublime joy.)
Romance: (Given a woman that is receptive to my version of it, there are few things that make me happier than putting a giddy little smile on her face. It puts a dopey smile on me.)
The second thing people seem to notice is that I'm less like Lurch and more like Gomez Addams.
I'm not really as stuffy as that sounds... I swear I've more modern interests too, it's just that filling out this survey makes me feel like I'm taking a highschool history test all over again, and I can't remember if it was Lincoln or Roosevelt that freed the Californians.
By all means, please distract me!
If you've got any better ideas, please suggest them. I'm always looking for new outings, and craving new learning experiences.
It could be argued that my occasionally rough and uncouth demeanor masks a very soft heart.
you are looking for someone equal parts adventurous and stay-at-home dependable.
you don't exactly meet all of my listed criteria, but you're within a reasonable margin of error. I'll let you decide if you would like to take a chance.
