I want something that's a cross between the feeling you get when you're really fucking high up and wonder if what you're standing on is secure, and that feeling when you look at a friend and smile thinking about an age old inside joke....without saying a word.
And there's plenty of room in here.
Fuck the fairy tale. I want someone battered and bruised. Someone who knows where their wounds are. Someone who has been, and can tend to them. Someone to stand by me, fight with me, support me, nurture me, and inspire me.
I want someone strong. Someone to carry me when I need to be, and someone who's wise enough to know that strength is giving in when it's time to. For what is an 'I love you' without some meat on its bones. That's what feeds the fire. You may wonder when I grab your hand if I'm dragging you off to an adventure, or behind a tree at a wedding. You won't likely wonder what it's like to look back though.
Finally, let's just try this. How about you just send me a message if you're interested. Frankly, I wish there was some form of dating site that didn't allow for likes, or even to see who's viewed you. You'd have to actually message someone. These sites are designed to not make people connect. And, if, by chance, I don't respond. It literally means nothing. It might be that I'm busy, or that I met someone and I'm exploring, or that I'm not interested. But none of this in any way lessens how awesome you are. Just ask your friends and family. They all know it. This isn't a zero sum game. We can all win.
Music is integral to my being as the air I breathe. I am an unabashed music snob. I primarily listen to live music recordings and my collection has been growing for over 20 years. There is something magical about the instant that music is created....mistakes and all. Miscues, broken strings, forgotten lyrics....magical, a mirror of life itself.
Food is a close second to music. I've spent countless hours watching, thinking, researching, and consuming all things delectable. The kitchen is my where is most of my time is spent while at home unless I'm playing guitar on the couch.
Books that provoke thought interest me. A brief list of recent reads are The Social Animal, Sex at Dawn, Wild, Drive, The Essential Enneagram, and The True Believer.
I cannot tell you how many times I've watched a movie until the climactic scene before realizing that I've seen it before.

This rarely slows me down. I've gone from coast to coast on a Friday to meet friends and end up either out late, or up early countless times.
