Also I don't date smokers, casual, when drinking, or at all.
I have cared about social justice issues like police brutality before it was cool, think that anyone regardless of race can be racist, that not all beers need to be an over hopped IPA to be good, and that non-monogamy doesn't require me to go to sex parties and things like that. Sorry if I just alienated all of Portland but if there are any of you left after that I am totally interested and I am not all that shallow about the rest.
I have many interests, some that come to mind are: building cars, racing, mixed martial arts, camping, shooting, Zen Buddhism, cooking, etc...
I have a sense of humor that can be very dry, or very ridiculous depending on the day. Some people love it and some people look at me like a dog with their head cocked. Meh!
I like to be an outdoorsy type; I moved here from Colorado and Maine originally.
I tend to stay physically active and athletic though I am no longer competitive after a lot of joint injuries.
I am NOT the pretentious type and I tend to abhor those who are. I am also intelligent enough to spot them thankfully. Be real and if you have an opinion say WHY you have that opinion.
I like to start every sentence in my self-summary with "I".
Reading: Dalai Lama, Norse myths, Hitchhikers Guide, Tucker Max, Harry Potter, a lot of classics, greek epics, and philosophy as well but I read mostly for fun these days.
Movies: Bad Santa, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Donnie Darko, The Pick of Destiny, Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, I am Legend, Idiocracy, Nausicaa, Moulin Rouge, Blues Brothers, etc...
TV: UFC, battlestar galactica, adult swim, top gear, archer, walking dead, dexter, trailer park boys.
Food: I have a weakness for good sushi but I love to cook and eat foods of all tastes.
Music: Electronic, hip hop, rap, nerdcore, irish folk to old school hardcore, etc... Except country. If it's good it's good and genre doesn't necessarily matter as long as my mood matches the music in question. I am a mood listener with both eclectic and mainstream tastes.
2. Tools, seriously how do people live without them?
3. A few good people to enjoy life with
4. Meaningful work (a struggle at times)
5. Eating, drinking, and being merry.
The rest will work itself out.
You like micro-brew culture, cars, mma, climbing mountains, live music or anything else fun!
