Admittedly, these self-summaries are necessarily awkward. Regardless, I'm here and interested in meeting people.
Would love someone to share experiences with, laughter, the occasional meal (I like to cook and like to have someone to share such with - obviously, not really something to be done on a first date). But I think I've strayed from the self-summary, haven't I?
I am curious, creative, and compassionate
Went to law school after trying to prevent myself from doing that for too long. Still unsure if this was an effort at self-inflicted torture or actually really engaging with ideas and issues that matter and affect people. Obviously, we're hoping for the latter.
Lately, I've been cooking a lot more which really is lovely. As someone who can be analytical and always thinking working with my hands while cooking is just refreshing and then there's this thing created at the end and I can say, I made that. I always plate my meals. The debate is still out if this is a nice attention to detail or evidence of OCD.
I've been told I come off as intelligent or creative but I don't think that's necessarily "first thing people usually notice" quality. It's not like one looks across a room and thinks, s/he looks intelligent or creative.
Old ladies tend to notice my hair. They're quite fond of it. I don't let that lead to an overly inflated ego given when you have blue hair and it's not Halloween I guess my hair or anything is pretty great.
I think Hudsucker Proxy is an underrated Cohen Bros. film. There's just a beauty of it all coming together, you know for kid! Good Fellas, Crimes and Misdemeanors, old Connery Bond Films.
Everything likely comes down to Radiohead, from Floyd (high school carryover) to Stars, Modest Mouse all seem to merge on Radiohead. Afghan Whigs though Greg Dulli needs to get over is women issues. Lately, I've been listening to Headlights.
I guess I should admit a love of bacon. Not sure what it is but there's something just lovely about it. Don't eat it that frequently but for a while while considering going to culinary school wanted to eventually open a restaurant called bacon. Yes, I do eat other things; enchiladas that I make. Generally, love food and cooking.
Also a bit of a politics junkie so spend a lot of time on that, which is inevitably confused as to how in the world the other side lives their lives. Very strange. Actually go to a barber who is a self-proclaimed Tea Party Republican in an attempt to understand how others think.
Okay, I will on occasion enjoy watching C-SPAN and BookTV.
But really, would be interested in meeting an intelligent, attractive (yes, we all notice looks) woman. Someone who is into good conversation.
