▀ ▀ ▀ Seeking platonic friends at the moment. Thanks. ▀ ▀ ▀
If you're unable to laugh at sarcastic humor...bummer...start at ¶ #3... ▀ ▀ ▀
I'm as wealthy as MC Hammer, as graceful as a dog at a fire hydrant and as modest as Kanye West. I drink hatorade for breakfast to start the day off right. I poo poo on science…It's a tool of Satan. The cosmos is hideous like your face. TED is lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck, but a real duck actually lame from stepping on a land mine. Compassion is for weak namby pamby fairies. Little old ladies that can no longer bake me cookies should be made into soylent green.
I work as hard as your mom on a Saturday night and my ambition is like the wings of an ostrich. I can't stand hiking, kayaking, swimming, tennis or any other activity that could mess up your manicure. Wanderlust is for hoity-toity yuppie douche-bags. Sapiosexuals are pathetic impotent Missionary Mary librarians. When they're bad in bed, I give them my best sargasm. I'm a bum as tight as a snare drum…Up tight! If you don't think this sarcasm is as subtle as a butt burp air biscuit in the bath…Tough noogies… We can get together the second Tuesday of next week to talk about it.
¶ #3 ▀ ▀ ▀
SERIOUSLY... Life is school. I'm here to learn, laugh, and love. Friends say I’m a chummy, open, wholehearted, "happy go lucky" ducky that's passionate about nature, poli-sci, history, financial investments literacy, commercial real estate...
Religious??? Nope. My religion is kindness. I'm a dreamer with a starry-eyed/poetic outlook on life...often romanticizing the cosmos and radical compassion for all humanity. If you're interested chatting theology I did go to a theological University and have studied Abrahamic religions more than most.
Do you seek a playmate for yoga, hiking, caving, skydiving or a friend to enjoy a film with? Let’s enjoy a moment! Be sure and skim my profile to see all the fascinations, smiles, laughs we share!
Video messaging via phone (skype, glide, etc) and love of travel have afforded me amazing friendships at any distance. I wouldn't have some of my greatest enduring friendships had I limited my horizons to my local city! :-)
...I even met incredible people throughout East Africa via OKC! I totally had to cut a ton of Western culture humor out of my profile. ;-)
Now back in the States, I've been on sabbatical travelling with a friend across the US. I'm super excited I'm free as a bird to settle in any metro, so we'll see which opportunities and beautiful souls steal my heart as my journey unfolds!
On a serious note. When it said "doing with my life" I had a bit of déjà vu! www.bit.ly/lutherobit
I'm a really self-satisfied, independent person and gravitate to others with a great sense of self-efficacy also. I endorse the following aphorisms:
▬ "We're all dating ourselves everyday...Establish you’re happy by yourself, before sharing it with someone else."
▬ "Happiness" is not a destination..."Love" is not a destination
▬ "Emotionally invest in the experiential process, not a specific outcome." http://youtu.be/W7B_4zGHJQg?t=1m33s
▬ "An attitude of love towards oneself, and happiness by oneself, will be found in all who are fully capable of loving others.."
▬ "You are what you love, not what loves you." https://youtu.be/5oWuFSO926k

I believe in reciprocal dating/taking turns and share Warren Buffett's prosperity mindset and ideology regarding conspicuous spending. I love the endorphins and euphoria of novel romantic interests as much as anybody AND a firm believer it takes a couple years to allow that stage to pass before considering greater secure attachments/greater commitments.
I can be very decisive and my philosophy is "different strokes for different folks" or www.markmanson.net/fuck-yes
