I'd really like to get to know some interesting people. Honestly, I don't have a whole lot of expectations about how people interact, so being open to organic connection is pretty high on my list. Basically, I think it comes down to the fact that I'm looking for people who are intellectually rich, socially vibrant, personally aware, and intuitively very present.
Also, if you take any stock in personality typing systems (which I have a deep skeptical empiricism about), I'm a:
-- ENTJ by Myer's Briggs
-- Rational by Kiersey
-- 8 according to the Enneagram
-- Middle-High Extrovert, Low Neurotic, Middle-High Conscientiousness, Middle-Low Agreeableness, and Middle Openness on the Big 5 personality type system
Discussing the relative value and worthlessness of any/all of these systems could occupy my life, so feel free to join in on the conversation.
I am decisive, liberal, and awesome
I spend a lot of time fixing up my old Kawasaki motorcycle. I'm also a pretty decent swing dancer. I work for a startup and wouldn't mind starting a few businesses of my own. Although I have a few long-term project irons in the fire, I often also have smaller ones pop in and out as opportunity and time permit. These have recently included wanting to build a still, create a fractal mobile, build an art broker website, and write a book on relationships and non-monogamy.
really like to talk when I'm happiest. Others have said cocky yet
adorable. Reconcile these as you'd like.
Movies: contact, being john malkovich, the big lebowski, 28 days later, requiem for a dream, wayne's world, sex lies & videotape, but i'm a cheerleader, secretary, away we go, upstream color
Food: mac N' cheese, anything normally vegetarian
Books: let's do authors instead: kundera, vonnegut, russell, twain, voltaire, hofstadler, chaitin, frege, wallace, wittgenstein ... anything with the worst and/or best of humanity in it ... anything with biting satire
Music: bedhead, bush, king missle, kraftwerk, john lennon, sublime, andrew WK, bach, beastie boys, radiohead, weezer, wilco, velvet underground, red hot chili peppers, chamber quarters
... I used to say anything but country, but its really anything but pop country -- really hard not to love the ache of classic country
