I'm a parent which is obviously quite a large part of my life. I have a son, he's four, his name is Lua, and he's both the grandest aspect of my existence and the most exhausting.
People seem to want immediate undying love or just sex; I want middle ground. I want to hang out and enjoy you. I want conversation and jokes and easy times.
People either want me to take care of them or follow them about, and I'm not looking to do either.
I'm silly and uncoordinated and generally a mess around anyone I think is great. You should take it as a compliment.
I am honest. I hate miscommunication. I want to be as direct as possible.
I'm good at problem solving and battling everyday chaos. I am an emotional person and I empathize well, but I know when it's time to feel and when it's time to just get shit done.
I'm a good parent though it doesn't always feel that way. I couldn't be happier with who he is.
I wish I knew more about the answer to this question. I'm always interested to know how I appear to the rest of society. I'm pretty clueless.

6 Things I Could Live Without:

Collars on t-shirts
people who cannot appreciate silence
hippie festivals that cost $300
I am always trying to think of better ways to deal with existing. I don't really care why I am here or where I will go when I'm not but just how to deal with the day in day out and be happy regardless.
All dudes say they are laid back. It's probably the most frequently stated phrase on male dating profiles.
I'm anxious most of the time. Most people don't assume that, but it's only because I'm determined to be outgoing. On the inside I'm over analyzing everything and trying not to be humiliated by everything that comes out of my mouth. Haha.
