It is near impossible to shock me but somewhat POSSIBLE to embarass me.
I make myself laugh. I suspect sometimes that I think I am funnier than other people do. :)
I'd like to write the great American novel but may not be angst ridden enough anymore to do it.
I love people. I will start conversations with anyone, anywhere. I am something of a social animal. Seguing into animals, I like to acknowledge animals when I pass then on the road and say hello. They don't answer
My interests include criminal justice, documentary film making, singer-songwriting, recovery, politics, Basketball, science fiction, spirituality, traveling.
In general, the superficial things don't interest me terribly. I appreciate aesthetics to a degree but the large bulk of my attraction to someone comes with their character and integrity.
I have led a varied and, at times, dramatic life. I keep it low on the dramatic scales these days
I am gainfully employed, fully self-supporting, educated and
Working towards something else
asking hard questions and actually getting them answered
Learning useless statistics about NBA basketball
That I'm really outgoing

Find your happiness where you are
You are dead serious about what is important to you but do NOT take yourself too seriously
You are a conversationalist
You have integrity, decency and depth
You are secure and strong in who you are
You are not easily offended or have terribly delicate sensibilities
You like drinking coffee
You are in recovery and/or think that someone else being in recovery is a cool/good/just fine thing and not tantamount to being in a cult
