What am I looking for? Well, not exactly sure. In the end, I want a relationship, but I don't think that searching for a relationship works. And I am not really wanting to rush into anything serious at the moment. I just want to date and see where things go.
I am real, straight forward, honest. I am picky.
I seem to have a song lyric in my head for everything but the chances of me being able to sing it for you to identify are slim. I can't sing.
What do I want? Intelligence! Tall, rich and handsome are good too but not necessary. Well, tall is kind of important.
Me: I like to play outside - boats, beach, hiking, canoeing, walking around town even when I should probably get a taxi but I prefer the walk.., camping, finding festivals and parades - and also go to museums, plays, concerts, eating at hole in the wall type places.. the list goes on! I love nature.
Remembering useless facts.
Laughing at myself.
Forgetting what point I was trying to make halfway through.
Figuring out new ways to solve problems
Currently - The Mind's Eye by Oliver Sacks
I love Oliver Sacks
I used to read constantly but since grad school have not been as much of a reader. I should read more, now I generally watch tv series.
Movies: Jeremiah Johnson, The Princess Bride, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Boondock Saints.
Music: Classic Rock, Top 40 of the 90's, Bluegrass, Old country(but NOT country pop), some gospel, a bit of Indie Rock.
I am a cord cutter when it comes to TV. I am currently still logged into someone else's Netflix, am doing the trial month of Amazon Prime, and finally bought one of those digital converter things which means I may watch Jeopardy. I binge on series. Right now I am loving The 100, liking The Riches, and wondering how best to catch up on Game of Thrones.
Books- real ones, not electronic ones. It seems like the majority of worldly possessions are books. Makes for fun moving but I don't overload big boxes.
Time outside. I like taking walks by myself as a sort of meditation.
And how I would rather have Click and Clack on my voicemail than Carl Kasell.
I am looking for a more long term relationship than I used to but don't want to go into a date analyzing whether or not it is a long term thing. A little fun and meeting new people is good too. But if it was long term I want someone who has a job, car, valid drivers license, probably at least a BS degree even though degrees are not everything.
You should probably not message me if our unfortunate genetic line up made you several inches shorter than me because I am weird, not your fault. If you have never listened to Car Talk on NPR or heard of NPR. Or I you cannot say anything about the number 42.
Bonus for Jeremiah Johnson quoting abilities and Princess Bride but the first is way better.
