I'm a bit traditional and old-fashioned, but nonetheless open to other ways of life.
I'm often described by others I know as, "an old soul," or, "someone who's very 'deep.'" I'll leave you to decide whether that's a good or bad thing.
I've also been known to have a chaotic sense of humor, and certainly have a quirky side to me.
When it comes to politics, I hold mostly libertarian principles. As a Centrist, I don't prefer one part to another. I embrace people's freedom to do what they wish (as long as it doesn't seriously injure others), but also place a high value on personal responsibility and a person's integrity. Maturity matters to me, and I tend to be rather mature for my age.
In the end, I'm really just a young guy with a deep heart trying to get through life with a few friends, and, maybe someday, a woman who's willing to share that life with me. In the eyes of my family and friends, I am exceedingly loyal, kind, and compassionate when it comes to matters of family, friendship, and romance. However, I have a competive side, and I am very much a logic-driven individual.
I just happen to be someome who has enough humanity and empathy left in him to care for people instead of being a mere cold and calculating biological machine. I am also very much a love-driven individual.
I am a straight male who believes in monogamy, but I am also very sexually open. I do not tend to be judgemental as a person, and I am a true romantic at heart who cares much more about a person and their heart, their personality and, their quirks, than I care about sex or shallow and vain things.
With this generation, it may be a bit much to ask of most people, but when it comes to friendships or relationships, I have my standards. A good friend or soulmate would be someone who is loyal, honest, patient, kind, and genuine in their intentions.
If the above are too much to ask, please swipe away. I am a person who actually cares and has a heart, but I'm not stupid, and I'm not interested in fakes or flakes (and there are plenty of those to go around). People like that leave me bitter and cynical. I suffer from dysthymia, so, please understand my low points.
I'm only interested in other people who are serious and deep.
Anyone who wants to talk to me, to be a friend, online acquaintance, or, perhaps, to get romantically involved with me, feel free to text me at

Almost anything that's edible, but especially seafood and Asian-style foods. I like to try foreign fruits and foods. Some might consider me something of a culinary adventerer.
