I love doing things that are interesting, exciting, and spontaneous. My ideal date is not dinner and a movie, it is more like sushi or falafel dinner, guitar jamming in the park, going out on the town watching a poetry slam or salsa dancing, and then talking about how fun that was. I've always wanted to do a tandem-bike date. Portland, here we go.
I am open to a lot of new things and perspectives. I also wear my heart on my sleeve, which is a double edged sword. People will be able to tell very easily when I like them, but also when I don't. A fan of old school romance, I have been known to do some cheezy things for girls.
My near term goals include getting a masters in History, and my life ambition is to be a college professor at a small or community college, where like Indiana Jones, I will be able to teach while exploring caves and stopping Nazis. Well, some of that will be true.
Book titles I enjoy are things like 1984, Brave New World, Invisible Man, Fahrenheit 45, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Flow, The Last Opium Den, The Trial, and on and on...
I'm a serious bibliophile, so I have a large collection of books on history, politics, social justice, the criminal justice system, and find myself reading 3-4 books a month when I can. I prefer to date women who are into reading- talking about books is sexy as hell.
Middle eastern food is my favorite, and I will end up taking you to that and Sushi if we become friends. I'm pretty adventurous as an eater, so I'll do mostly anything. Never tried nor will I, rocky mountain oysters, however.
