I like playing RPG's, sleeping in late (which, recently, I never seem to get to do!) and reading stories that force you to grow with the characters.
I'm an old soul in a young body.
I'm full of eccentricities and contradictions. I'm passionate and withholding; I'm appreciative if you're open to it, but okay if you're not. I listen to all genres of music and enjoying discovering new forms of entertainment.
I'm a fully-realized and comfortable sexual being; also constantly striving to stay in touch with my emotions. I'm the type of person who fills out these biographical sections earnestly, knowing most people just skim a few words and hop straight towards the pictures and the income section - and am, mostly, okay with that...
More importantly, I'm saavy enough to know in these times, in this economy, the most impressive and coveted commodity one can possess is a Smile.
Luckily, the price of one smile is exactly one smile... I look foward to meeting more people who can do the math.
Poetry was my first love. From Dr. Suess to Pablo Neruda then from Emily Dickinson to Edna St. Vincent Millay; they've all made a substantial impact on my life in some way. As an aspiring poet and novelist, I hope to someday do for others what their work has done for me.
If someone's face can become flushed when they read one of my poems or skin can chill when they come across a specific line of mine, then I'll know I've done right. I still remember the goose flesh I got when reading Edna St.Vincent Millay's "Witch Wife" for the first time. If others can resonate with my work like that; I'll consider myself to be truly blessed!
Basically, to sum myself up: I am curious, passionate, and oft-times lyrical person looking to find someone with just as much passion in their eyes.
I'm looking to make friends and meet new people around my general area so that when I can go out and cut loose, I have activity partners who are down for new adventures.

I have my spurts of maturity; I have great moments of quirky, off-center adventure; I even master zen-like silence and fancy myself one with the universe around me. Though, when it's all written and tallied, once the last check mark's been checked and the final "I" has been dotted...?
It's the little things I've spent the most time thinking about: "Will I have kids before I'm thirty?" "What if I don't find the 'Love of My Life?'" "What place is open this late and still delivers?" "How can I message so-and-so without it coming off as a tired pickup line?" "Should I buy groceries or party hard on Saturday?" "What's the conspiracy between Volkswagen and hot women ...and why do I not work at Volkswagen?" "How many women wearing yoga pants today actually do yoga or work out?"
The askance glance across a small cafe table or that sterling lilt to an earnest conversation; I want to find that indefinable instance that presses deep into the cockles of your heart and continually wells within you long after the moment has passed.
I want the steady hand of a lifelong friend, along with the eros and curiosity of a burgeoning love affair.
I want the kind of emotions bards score epics and minstrels croon over--that earnest, ceaseless passion that makes scholars struggle to place words to its inscrutable ways.
I want to have that kind of enduring love.
And... I'm not ashamed to say I continue to wait for it.
If you want a friend.
If you're open to adventure.
If you're interested in looking at life through the other side of the looking glass...
