Since I'm no good at self-summary, I'm going to crib something that xbklyngrrlx wrote about me. Also it describes the guy I hope I come across as:
"He is dapper, flirtatious, and a gentleman. He puts most white men on the dance floor to shame, appreciates good grammar and bawdy humor equally. He charms the pants off everyone ((or skirt) and sometimes actually off!). His bendyness has inspired me to get bendy, too. He is a child whisperer & an amazing dad. His chicken soup cured my flu and his cocktails should be shared with the worthy (open invite, byoliquor). He is a gifted yet understated lion tamer and problem solver.
While I haven't known him very long in the grand scheme of things, his hidden Superpower is his heart of gold and that, plus all the rest, makes [redacted] a unicorn of a man whose friendship we all treasure. "
I'll take it.
Also, hot chocolate. Seriously, I was sipping on a batch that I just made and had to come here to brag. It's a pretty big deal.
Were I to list them here, we'd have nothing to talk about.
Tell you what, ask me what I'm reading and I'll tell you. Because there's always at least one answer to that. Weird that this seems like such a personal question.... (though, if you clicked just because of my name, we'll already have something to talk about).
Favorite movies and television tend to be be defined by the voices in them. I love the sound of conversation. Sooo, in no particular order The Thin Man, Philadelphia Story, West Wing (1st 4 seasons but really, the rest is like pizza. Even when it's bad, its still pretty good), SportsNight, Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip, Gilmore Girls, Parenthood. I'm sure there's more.
As to food. My palate is as itchy to explore as the rest of me.
-A new mountain (literal and metaphorical) to climb.
That leaves me one more. Want to audition for the spot?
-How many meals can I plan for the family before I go?
-Why it is that I always seem to overestimate my days but underestimate my years.
Also, if we hit it off, at some point, we will find ourselves on a dance floor and you will likely be embarrassed. I REALLY like to dance. But, as I type this, it occurs to me that its possible you won't be embarrassed. You might enjoy it. Is there nothing you can't do, Internet?
But, who are we kidding? If you're reading this, it's likely that I messaged you and you are deciding whether or not to respond. Things you should know if this is the case:
-When we meet, I will likely have different facial hair. I change it often and just don't take enough pics of myself to keep up with the profile image. Today, it's a full beard with a shaved head.
-I am currently spending a lot of time with an incredibly open-minded, adorable, smart and funny grrl. We both have active social lives apart from each other and with each other. If you see yourself involved in one of those aspects, speak up! Feel free to look her up (xbklyngrrlx).
-A special note about dating. Currently my life is pretty full and wonderful. And I love adding new people to the cast. I'm not (or we're not) "unicorn hunting". But if you end being the kind of friend I (or we) want to get naked with, fantastic!
-I wasn't kidding about the dancing thing. Seriously, it's embarrassing.
