I'm very socially liberal in my beliefs about reproductive choice, equality and opportunity to do whatever you want, regardless of your orientation or gender, born or chosen. But I'm actually pretty traditional in my personal gender roles. I don't mind paying on dates, I've never been good at cooking or gardening, and I'm totally a sucker for women who complement me. Or compliment me. ;)
Reviews are in. Here's what the critics are saying:
"He's a great guy because...he likes cats and puts up with me. And cares about cities and shit."
"Creatively entertaining! Best Summer thrill ride of 2014!"
"Four paws up!"
Two of those quotes come from actual friends.
I'm deeply involved in local civic politics / activism as a blogger ( http://austinonyourfeet.wordpress.com ) and on local civic boards, trying to make the city more affordable and walkable. It takes up as much time as my regular work, but in for a penny, in for a pound.
Talking through problems.
Figuring out what needs to get done.
Arty, independent, eclectic, geeky, foreign. Covers books, music, food, art, shows, people, and many other things.
Between work and politics, I'm pretty busy so i don't have time to prepare elaborate Bachelor-style dates. I'm really looking for somebody I can enjoy evenings with, go out and try new restaurants, music, theater, activities, and pull my mind away from the mundane.
It's too much pressure to think any particular date is going to lead to a long-term relationship. That's really what I want, though, so only message me if you're open to that as a possibility.
