What are you like? You are funny as hell. You don't get your knickers in a twist either. You do many things out-doors. You're intelligent and know about things that I do not. My dad was a mechanic and very handy so I've always found that attractive. If you make, build and grow things, we'll never run out of things to do or talk about. Your eyes sparkle when you smile or laugh. I will confess, I have a particular fondness for men with facial hair, this doesn't mean I won't find you attractive without it; it just means that I will hide your razor!
I dislike the upfront disclaimer, but here it is anyway...I'd really like to limit my correspondence to those who are truly looking to find a mate or new friends. More to the point, if you're looking for a hookup please don't look here.
Update: I started a consulting firm doing essesntially the same work. But ya know, for a bigger fee. Seemed prudent.
*driving in a way that makes people grab the "holy shit handle" (but not with children in the car)
*fixing things and finding root cause for failures
*mowing my lawn several days after it really needed to be done (this is not a euphemism, I'm talking about green blades o grass being shamefully longer than my neighbor)
*carrying all the groceries in the house in only one trip
My teeth are nice? Cute glasses when I'm wearing them?
I'm told I'm intimidating, which sucks, because I don't aim to be. I'm actually kinda shy about meeting new people in groups, one on one I am much more comfortable. Hopefully this, combined with the fact that I am really good at appearing confident, is the reason people think as they do. Once people know me they admit I indeed intimidated them but have since found that I'm ridiculously so not what they thought! It should be noted this feedback comes from people I work with. Hmmm...
Movies: I generally like guy movies. My favorites include: the usual suspects, goodfellas, fight club, the big lebowski...
TV: I really only watch nerdy programming, homeland, californication, history channel. I'm a big documentary netflixer.
Music: I don't like country too much, they sing about sad stuff and it makes me get all emo. Everything else is fair game. Also, I like it loud and full of base in my car. I am the jerk at the red light whose whole car is vibrating. Nice, I sound like such a punk.
Books: A lot of WWII history and gardening related books. Authors I have multiples of -Potuck, Maugham, Banville, Ondaatje
