There is still so much I want out of life, but it looks like I may have to wait to experience what I want. I am fine with that. I like to travel, and see new places and experience different cultures. These are definitely on my things on my to do list.
I am looking for someone that is into hanging out and having fun. I want someone that enjoys being out side and working out. Some things I like to do around town are: play some pool, hit a comedy club, or just grab some good food and enjoy a nice conversation. I try to keep things simple and relaxed as much as I can and love being around people that enjoy the same things.
I am shy, dry humored, sarcastic, and I persevere. What you see is what you get with me, and it does take a while for my sense of humor to warm up. I like to immerse myself in the moment, whether it is listening to music, or being with somebody.
If you don't have the patience to put up with someone who is changing their life, then you don't have the compassion for life. I would really like to get to know somebody now, rather than wait for my world to be perfect. Why? Then I know that person is really into me, and not into what I could provide.
I can impersonate Bill Clinton with a woody-woodpecker voice. Not to mention Ross Perot. "A billion dollars, folks, wasted by the federal government!"
I am good at knowing the right practical people, and not afraid to ask for help when I need it.
One of my passions outside of chemistry is writing. When I get a draft done of a science fiction novel I'm writing, I'm definitely going to look and see about getting it published. It was very encouraging to know that I won second place in a poetry contest sponsored by the Columbia Chapter of the Missouri Writers' Guild.
I play chess rather well. I am a master class postal chess player. Yeah, I know to finish one of those postal games takes more than year, and each move is a post card, but it's fun! I haven't been beaten in Stratego, and I like board games. You won't find me doing sodoku or crossword puzzles. Not my thing. I like to learn new games, especially card games.
I am definitely good at swimming, as far as amateurs go. Hiking and walking and volleyball are a few of the outdoorsy activities that I like. As far as camping and river float trips, I am into those as well. I just haven't done them for a long time. I was in Boy Scouts, I did them back then, and I surely see myself getting back into it, especially if I found someone who was really big into it.
I am going to try and make ballroom dancing one of my regular Friday night activities. Seems the Salsa meetup group does their stuff on Sunday nights. I might have to try them, but I was looking for more spicier Friday nights.
Other things I know real well are physics, biology, chemistry, history, philosophy, and pop culture items. You can play any 1980's song or early 1990's song I am probably going to recognize the tune in ten seconds. Getting it out on the tip of my tongue might be another trick.
Depending on how this fall goes, and if I have the time, I will either try a cooking class, an acting class, or some automotive repair class. I need to get something practical.
I do know that I am good at giving massages. Not trying to be creepy, or be a player about it. Just stating what I am good at.
My favorites in movies are: Batman (The 1989 one), LOTR, Back to the Future, Dark City, Blade Runner, Brazil, Alien, Aliens, Iron Man, Conan the Barbarian, Terminator (1 & 2), Brave Heart, The Road Warrior, Richard III, Hamlet, Othello, Good Will Hunting, Anything with Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Vincent Price, and Humprey Bogart. The Malteese Falcon, Double Indeminity, The Spy Who Came Out From the Cold, Ghostbusters, and many other movies that I could rattle on about.
I don't watch TV that much. So I haven't seen Glee, Mad Men, or True Blood. What I have seen and like is The Tudors, The Borgias, Camelot, Pillars of the Earth, Masterpiece Theater, Farscape, Twin Peaks, Babylon 5, Columbo, the old Hawaii Five-O, South Park, Turner Movie Classics, and much more.
I collect a lot of soundtracks from action movies, and my favorite artists are Enya, Roxette, Front 242, Nine Inch Nails, Danny Elfman, Fleetwood Mac, Lady Gaga, and Beethoven.
I'm into chinese , thai, and mexican food, but I appreciate all types.
2.) My family and friends
2.) My cat
3.) Writing, it's always going to be in my blood.
4.) Music, it helps with my creativity.
5.) Laughter and public displays of affection
6.) Intellectual discussions
Why are Hollywood bad guys never evil enough in action movies?
What kind of women could I attract if I had lightning bolts as a superpower?
Is Risk really a good substitute for world domination?
I have also never cheated in a relationship, and I am not going to start.
I love this quote from RareTigerLily:
"If you're just looking to connect with someone else like you, hoping almost desperately that they won't laugh and walk away, and just wanting to be treated like another human with hopes, desires, fears, and defects."
