If you are anything like me then I'm sure you're tired of reading boring profiles chalked full of cliches like "I'm an easy going guy/girl" and "looking for some one who likes to have fun and laugh". Cause really tho, who doesn't like to have fun? And much like people who claim to be laid back and easy-going, anyone who has to point out what type of sense of humor they have, doesn't really have one.
So rather than bore you with mindless dribble, I have taken the courtesy of uploading pictures of myself doing the things I like to do with the kinds of people I like to do them with. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words and you are probably the best judge of character that you know. So, I'll let you decide for yourself what kind of guy you think I am. If you want to know more we can trade stories over cocktails.
Now that we have that cleared up... and assuming you're still interested, I would like to share with you what I am looking for on this site.
I'm looking for a girl who "gets it". Someone I can be myself around with no holding back. What you see is what you get, no bullshit, no drama. So don't expect me to kiss your ass and agree with you every time, cause that just aint me. Haha. For me a good relationship is push and pull, a little playful bickering is healthy. You have to be laid back enough to know when I'm just teasing, but strong enough to give it out and call me on my bullshit from time to time.
Staying in and nerding out for hours on end. (Unapologetic science geek)
Writing, editing and submitting articles at the last possible minute. (My editors and translators must love me for this. Good thing they're homies)
Cooking for one. (Much more difficult than cooking for two; it's noteworthy)
Deciphering broken English. (Seriously, I'm like a black belt with super powers with this shit)
Sacrificing traditional security for freedom. (My lifestyle and present situation speak for themselves)
I actually spend a lot of time thinking about why it is so freakin difficult to find the right someone. I mean I do very much enjoy being happily single, but why do random periods of extreme loneliness have to be the price of freedom? I'm looking for someone who knows how to share that happiness and freedom. Are my standards too high? Am I asking for too much in my relationships? No... even though I don't know exactly what I do want, experience has shown me enough to know exactly what I don't want. I have come to accept that these "moods" are only temporary but also unavoidable unless I can find the right someone to break the cycle.
So dream girl, if you are out there, I have stopped trying to think of what you should look like or the characteristics that you should have. I now spend my time pondering whether or not you actually exists... I like to think so.
