I'm fun-loving, irreverent, and soulful.
I've been tired of the single life for a good while now. There's something missing - that extra spark that life can have when you're sharing it with your own special someone. Unfortunately it's hard to meet relationship-minded men in my current situation (long, irregular work hours!).
I'm looking forward to meeting an honest, kind, fun-loving man. A man with the "je ne sais quoi" that keeps me smiling just because he is who he is. Someone interested in the long run. As long as you're not looking for casual "hook-ups" let's get to know each other and see where we should go from there.
-I am tall.
Favorite Books: I was a big bookworm growing up... Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (I've been reading it for years, in parts as I can "grok" it, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Jazz (Toni Morrison), The Great Gatsby, Another Country, Animal Farm, The God of Small Things, John Grisham and Dan Brown's novels, select romance novels, Harry Potter (the series), German: How to Speak it and Write it, Proverbs, Job and Ecclesiastes in The Bible (although I don't think of myself as especially religulous), Stranger in a Strange Land, The Tao teh Ching, Born to Win by Lewis Timberlake and so much more...
Favorite TV Shows: Empire, Grimm, Scandal, MI-5, The Simpsons, Globe Trekker, Rick Steves, Star Trek, X-Files,
Favorite Music: All - but primarily classic rock, alternative, old-school hip-hop, old-school reggae/dancehall and old-school R&B. I don't listen to the radio as much as I used to... Some of the artists on my mp3 player now: Norah Jones, Erasure, Elton John, Lenny Kravitz, Paul McCartney, Meatloaf, Queen, Bob Marley, U2, Lauryn Hill, Sade and I also love Train, Florence and the Machine, Coldplay, Adele (of course) and Maroon5. I 've also been meaning to check out more Goody Mob and Outkast.
Favorite Food: SPICY!! Jamaican/West-Indian, Italian, Tex-Mex, Indian and Chinese would top the general list. Oh, and robust, juicy red wines.
-traveling/learning new things,
-the sun/fresh air,
-my family and friends,
-books, words, the beauty in the rhyme and lyricism of language,
-kindness: my default mode is kindness. I prefer to be around people who share a similar appreciation for the power of kindness and self-discipline,
-honesty and integrity are also very important to me. My trust grows and solidifies with time and experience.

I was really captivated by this design competition back in early 2011. I still think about it a lot: http://www.jovoto.com/projects/life-edited/landing and I also think often about living off the grid and/or how to create a lifestyle that minimizes my impact on mother earth while maintaining some degree of modernity and convenience. Here is the winner of the Jovoto competition, implemented: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYV0qATsyts
Travelling. Some places on my current list to visit are Vegas, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Cuba and Universal's Harry Potter world at Disneyland. A tour of the African Continent is also on my bucket list.
I also really appreciate the men on this site who are straightforward about their age and height and have updated, genuine pictures... Yes, we are all putting our best foot forward and on the wwweb, a little coyness might be wise (we all do that in one way or another, for good reason) - but it's a good feeling when people are liking the real you, right? And after all, we ARE going to SEE each other when we meet. :)
-you are not married,
-your profile will give me a reasonable idea of who you are and you are interested in something that can become long-term,
-you have a generally positive outlook on life.
