My definition of "dating" is a bit fuzzy. Going out to eat, or a walk in the park, grab a drink, or to a movie doesn't necessarily constitute a date. Most of my friends are female, and we don't date, but we do things that look like dates to other people. They have boyfriends or husbands or we just don't have that kind of relationship. I have had some friendships that included "with benefits" but that just blurs the lines of "dating" as the benefits weren't exclusive, nor did they necessarily tie into any "dates."
I would like to have someone I call a girlfriend. I like monogamous relationships. I just don't see the need to be all or nothing. If I meet someone and we make an agreement to be exclusive, then those are the rules I will live by. I believe in setting ground rules to avoid confusion or hurt feelings. I tend to err on the side of caution.
I am a cross between a geek and an athlete. I like physical fun along with intellectual challenges. I am looking for a woman who can match my interests. Do you like weight lifting and comic books? Do you like long hikes and video games? Can you sword fight as well as the characters in your favorite movie? You don't have to answer yes, but this is the kind of mindset I am looking for
I am also great with my hands. I am a trained massage therapist, licensed in Ohio. Once I get settled in Naples, I will work towards getting my Florida license.
I enjoy movies and TV series. I hate commercials, so I prefer to binge on DVDs. My favorite movie is Bladerunner. My recent TV series that I have caught are "Penny Dreadful," and "Deadwood." I loved "Battlestar Galactica," but didn't catch much of "Caprica."
I recently discovered I really like Blues music. I've heard there are a few places in Naples where I can find it, but I haven't been out exploring the music scene, yet.
I'm game for just about any cuisine, but Mexican is my goto food. If only Mexico had a hummus dish, then I would be truly happy.
Health. I try to eat well, act well, and move well. Sometimes I slip, or over indulge, but I trend towards healthy.
Deep thoughts. What is the nature of the universe? If time equals zero at the speed of light, how does light move? What does blue taste like?
Friends. I like knowing people I can count on, people that will appreciate me for who I am, and people who enjoy my different way of thinking.
I'll have to think about the other two.
The nature of the universe (Philosophy)
My relationship with myself.
My relationships with the people I know.
Characters for stories. Stories for characters.
If you enjoy games that are meant to be games, but don't game the relationship.
If you are looking for a companion in life, a partner, not a missing piece.
