i consider myself a perpetual student and like being around people i can learn from. i tend to have a more serious disposition, interspersed with silliness. I make people laugh - most often when I'm not actually trying. I fancy myself an admirer of whimsy -- if not myself, whimsical. I guess I aspire to that.
I am pretty outgoing and social though need my down time like anyone else. I love massage, PDAs, and other tokens of affection. In some respects I'm old-fashioned; I like sending (and receiving) snail mail and love an occasion that calls for a hat. Seeking someone that can own his baggage and be a potential partner down the road.
i.e. you've done some personal work/dev.
some things i love: amsterdam, tulips, art deco, French cinema, shades of purple, poutine, the burner ethos, british slang, edamame, glitter, unadulterated laughter, colors, facepaint, cuddles, the sky & smell in the air just before a thunderstorm, personality tests (i'm an ENFJ - Myers Brigg and either a 4 or 1 on Enneagram), jasmine, languages, fizzy water, rose-everything, photography, any book in the taschen series, singing, yoga, rioja wine, dinner parties, & vintage clothes.
some things that i do not like: loud people, dust bunnies, following the crowd, litter, tobacco, reality tv, and poor spelling. And loud music.
