I have a lot of different interests and I really don't think it is important in a relationship that all interests are shared. I like to camp. However, I realize that many people see civilization as advanced enough to make it a rather odd hobby. Why pay for climate control only to load up, trek into the woods, build a fire only to still freeze all night? I get it and as long as I don't catch crap for wanting to go exploring every once in a while I'm cool doing it without you. There is one thing that needs to be a common interest though. Both the time and expense make it necessary. And I would always feel like I was not where I should be if you weren't with me. That one thing is travel. I need to see the world. I need to smell it and touch it. I need to to get swindled and have my wallet stolen. I need to walk on places that are older than I can comprehend and talk to people in broken phrases, hand gestures, and smiles. I need to get lost on strange transit systems and try food I can't identify. And I want those memories to be ones shared with the person I love. I want the inside jokes that come with a certain item on a menu that make us both laugh and get us strange looks. I intend on traveling to another country every year and even more when I retire. I've seen my fill of Asian countries for a few years and feel it is time to move on. I'm planning on going to Costa Rica in November unless a more compelling offer is presented. (Hint: if you ever want anything I will fold like a tortilla in the presence of a good back scratch. I should be denied government clearance it is that bad. Screw torture; scratch between my shoulder blades and I'd build North Korea a nuclear reactor.) So travel, yeah, kinda important if you haven't figured it out by now.
Movies: Lucky Number Sleven, Snatch, Usual Suspects, Boondock Saints, Love Actually (don't judge me, it was a great movie) Gladiator, Braveheart, The original Star Wars trilogy, just to name a few. I love movies!
Music: Most anything that is not rap/ R&B
Food: I love it all. I especially love trying new foods. I admit that did get a little scary when I was in Asia.
[Update on the food thing] I do love food but my waist line doesn't approve. So I have changed my eating habits to reflect this. Combined with my workout schedule I've managed a downward trend in the stomach area. But it is going to be awhile before I look like the guys from 300.

and YOU! (Corny, I know, but a little endearing isn't it?)
You have a passport and are open to the idea of adding Costa Rica to it in November. Because all my friends are lame and/or married. You would think it would be easier to find people who want to spend a week on the beach drinking mojitoes.
Please do not message me if you are trying to get me to watch your stupid webcam. I don't care if you need votes or if it is a "free private viewing." The answer is no.
