I've written a lot for those interested in reading, but don't feel compelled to do so. I just wanted to be honest and upfront with this, as this online dating stuff lends too much to anonymity, which I don't think is the point of this.
In one sentence: A high powered moving target that finds nearly everything hilarious.
I'm in the process of making real improvement this year, and a big part is getting in better shape. I'm down ten pounds and lifting more than I have before, but I'm hoping that is just the start. I don't judge or expect others to be the same. You be you, and you love you. :)
I'm a 6,2" goof that has a head full of odd ideas that never stops thinking. People have complimented me by saying I can say something intelligent about anything, however I don't know if that's accurate. I'd rather think that at this point I can be honest that I may have no idea what I'm talking about, but I have a vivid enough imagination to have something to say.
I'm a chatty guy, but I like to listen too. I enjoy stories, and sharing laughs are some of life's best moments. Fair warning, however, I have a limitless supply of ridiculous things to say.
"One of God's own prototypes. A high powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die."
As far as what I look for in others: Sincerity, primarily. Mostly to hear their story (or stories), but as far as intimacy and romance goes, I look for something unique to captivate me. Out of fear of sounding a little out there, I feel that observing someone in a special moment reveal themselves with no social fears or stigma to be exhilarating, as if nature with all of its tragic beauty unfolded itself all at once with great splendor and potency only to vanish all of a sudden. Those things leave me with euphoria that I cherish and chase, like I'm following footprints in my mind. I commit colours, sounds, and words in those moments to memory, because that is a piece of that person, set adrift like a petal from a flower bud. The great thing is that everyone has those moments to share all the time, the catch however is will that be what captivates me? The best way to know, as best as I can figure, is to be sincere, if possible. :)
Another thing, I am a huge supporter of individuality and individual rights, for everyone, and feel that there is a lot of work for us as a culture to do. I say this not to win lame brownie points from people, but mostly because straight white men are really boring and goofy (which I can admit being one), and should not be in charge of everything. With recent garbage going on, and people saying things like "they're not ready for a female president" or "why isn't there a straight parade," my response is "that statement means that you need a female president, ready or not" and "there is a straight parade, and it's called the santa claus parade."
Meanwhile I'm trying to self publish my writings and other creative projects, online and otherwise in my free time. I appreciate self expression, and what people do to express themselves intrigues me.
I'm also on a bit of a health quest, being that we're still a bit away from full-on cyborg action, I want to make this vehicle for my brain I'm stuck with to be as good as I can get it to be, without getting too obsessed. Healthy in mind as well as body, after all.
Also laughing, and making up songs to kill time in elevators.
Star Wars, James Bond, and way too many other movies to name. I have a near encyclopedic knowledge of movies (plus a love for very bad movies).
Any and All sorts of music, from Tom Petty to Jurassic Five, Beatles to Beethoven, Gowan to Gwar, and some Weird AL here and there. I love Classical, Heavy Metal, Hip Hop, Indie, and many foreign music styles. Music is a mental gateway for my imagination.
Not much for Seafood or Sushi, but I enjoy most cultured and local foods from Indian cuisine to simple steak and potatoes. However, I am very critical of supposed super fancy restaurants, as I feel they often miss the target for the food experience that could be had (but hey, at least they've done a great job decorating the place, right?). I have a weakness for dark chicken and peanut butter, and my weakness is strong.
I don't do regular TV as commercials and AD's have a way of getting under my skin.
