My self-summary
I am a thoughtful, empathetic ,funny and intelligent person who values integrity, kindness and creativity. I tend to think... ALOT, perhaps more than some people care for. But once you open the door of introspection and intellectual curiosity, there is no turning back. Don't get me wrong, I am very much a people person and I really make an effort to get to know ,understand and appreciate people for who they are. I pride myself on being a loyal and supportive friend and I love to make people laugh(sometimes unintentionally). I am pretty laid back,however when it comes to things that truly matter to me , I am deeply passionate and filled with conviction(which just makes it easy for my friends to egg me on :) ). I love conversation and respectful debate, and I am very strongly attracted to women who intellectually and ethically hold their ground.

I was born a hopeless romantic(thanks a lot 80's coming of age movies), but life experience has shown me that Romance needs at least one foot in reality. On the flipside, I think living life without nurturing dreams and promoting a better world is a empty way to live.

I love women who are smart, nuanced, sincere, compassionate, a little nerdy and free thinking. (what more could you ask for?maybe available :) )

Six things I could never do without
1. Friends and Family(and all the things they provide such as love,kindness, empathy and encouragement )
2. Good Conversation
3. Great Food
4.My computer and a decent internet connection
5. My Camera(I love photography)
6.My Music

of coarse, a life without love and affection gets old rather fast.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The State of the world. mysteries of human behavior and the nature of the universe. I have a passion for issues regarding social and economic justice. However, I try to balance some of the harsh realties of the world with the hope of what is possible and an appreciation of the simplest pleasures in life(friends, family,food and a good laugh) I am not above cute videos of cats.
