I have an amazing life full of awesome friends whom I love greatly. I am looking for an awesome partner, not a provider, to share my awesome life with. It would be helpful to hate the same things I hate (not that I have them listed here, but ya know...).
I like to make things, often involving wool or food. I also tend to buy amazing cheeses to share with my friends. I kind of have a reputation, ifyouknowwhatimean...
I am easily amused and pretty loyal to people in my life that have earned it. My closest friends are better to me than family.
I have a cat. He's pretty terrible to everyone on the planet but me. I love him anyway. Dogs are superior. Shared evolution with the human species is pretty damn hard to beat in a companion!
Every time I see an old, abandoned anything, I desperately want to go inside. Preferably with a camera. I'm sure it won't be nearly as cool once I actually go into one. I've built up so much excitement over several years that now I just watch the sides of the road with glee every time I'm a ways outside the city.
Random things about me: hyperbolic; unabashed devil's advocate; don't want kids; believe in one fewer god than most people; bad at lying; often (and ineffectually) attempt to apply logic to human relationships; sometimes a quiet talker; likes the sleep.
Left to my own devices, I'm inclined to stay in and hang out, but I love to go on adventures! Adventure me!
I am human, of the, and year.
I'm a product manager, learning about user experience and design on the side (oh and wev dev/css too, apparently?) and incorporating that into my job description as much as possible.
Otherwise, I go rock climbing, blues dancing, or couching (that's a sport, right?) as much as possible/motivated.
I help run a monthly blues dance to feed my addiction.
Let's be honest. It's my smoking rack and/or amazing ass. But if your first message to me is "your beautiful" or a variation on that grammatically horrifying theme, you haven't haven't been paying attention to the right things here, and it's insta-delete for you! (Obviously, this doesn't mean that that sort of comment is never allowed ever, but seriously... it's a terrible opener and you should be ashamed.)
Movies: Amélie, LOTR, and most of the comic book/nerd reboots of late: Superman, Batman, Star Trek - they were all amazing.
Music: pretty much anything. Quick but very incomplete list: Coldplay, Weezer, Ben Folds, Regina Spektor, Jason Mraz, Band of Horses, System of a Down/Scars on Broadway, Silverchair, Weird Al, Muse, Avenged Sevenfold, Barcelona, Stephen Lynch, Dresden Dolls/Amanda Palmer, Vienna Teng, Elbow, Christabel and the Jons, Blair Crimmins and the Hookers, Mumford and Sons, Avett Brothers, most of what pops up on the awesome dubstep Pandora station that I took over from a friend.
Food: I'll try any food at least once. I am an omnivore. I also drink. I could eat sushi pretty much every day and not get bored.
TV: Shows I have enjoyed (off the top of my head and in no particular order): Firefly, Bones, NCIS, House, Dollhouse, Grey's Anatomy, Mythbusters, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Psych, Game of Thrones, Community, Arrested Development, Dexter, Misfits (before it started to suck), Sherlock, Elementary, DaVinci's Demons, Continuum, and some other things.
Also: Are most of you guys REALLY 6 feet tall? I find it hard to believe that so many of you are [literally] above average!
Less seriously (or more seriously?), I just had to move my scotch collection into a cabinet. It was finally too large to line up along the back of the kitchen counter. So sad. 14 bottles of single malt is NOT too many for one person to have, I don't care what anybody says.
... you are literate
... you want to go blues dancing or rock climbing or geocaching or drink yummy scotch and smoke cigars with me. Ideally, all of the above and mostly at the same time or in a short time span
... you treat people well because it's the right thing to do and not because of the promise of some tasty sky cake when you die
I'm pretty -ist about what area of town you live in. If it's not inside the perimeter or on the north east corridor (Ptree-Indust through 85 ish), I probably can't be bothered to go there... Sorry. I live in Norcross and work in Midtown, so location-judge away! I shall not be offended.
