I'm a genuinely good person, but not your average Joe. I'm someone who is always striving to be the best person I can be and to approach life from a place of love and compassion. "Striving" is the keyword here. I fall short of this often. Most people would tell you I'm very bright, funny, honest, genuine and talented. They'd also probably say I'm sarcastic,opinionated, and intense (I prefer to say "passionate"). I'm an exceptionally good friend to those in my life. In fact, my closest group of friends I've known for over 30 years. I love to help others and create.
Seriously, I have no idea.
Movies - I could go on and on! It's so hard to narrow it down, but here are a bunch of them: Amadeus, Network, Bonnie and Clyde, Rocky, Breaking Away, Bull Durham, Defending Your Life, Muriel's Wedding, American Splendor, Trainspotting, Kramer vs. Kramer, The Hustler, Squid and the Whale, loving Ramin Bahrani's movies, also Tom McCarthy's, Hannah and Her Sisters, Crimes and Misdemeanors, it's cliched but The Godfather, Raging Bull, This is Spinal Tap, Jaws. Should I move on to documentaries? That's a whole new list.
Music - My favorites are Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell, early Stevie Wonder, Radiohead, and The Clash. But I like most types of music, and I'm really wanting to know more new music. So if you have any great suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
Food - I love food! My favorites are Thai, Mexican, and Indian, but I like almost every kind of food. I do try to balance it out with eating pretty healthy.
2) Writing and producing
3) Mexican food
4) Making a difference in the lives of others
5) Lately, my glasses unfortunately
6) And my Magic Eight Ball... it makes all my decisions for me
I'm just at a point where I'm not interested in starting things out calling it "dating," certainly not until there's some actual mutual interest. For me, it just doesn't feel genuine that way.
I know for some it's important to them that the man treat them and take the lead, especially at the beginning, and I totally respect everyone has their wants and needs. That's just not where I'm at right now. So if that interests you, please reach out.
