Sometimes I'm silly or foolish, other times I'm grounded and thoughtful, but there's always a touch of kindness in everything I do. I grew up on fairytales, and that has taught me to be a bit of a romantic. I'm a capable, independent person: I cook, clean, and even do my own laundry. I can often be found reading, listening to music, or playing games on or off the computer. I'm close to my family and friends and like to spend time with them whenever I can. I'm very much an animal lover and have two handicap cats of my own, and am looking for a girl who is the same.
I am tall, touching, and touched
Outside of work, I spend a lot of time on my own with Netflix, cats, books, TV during the seasons, and playing games. I like to get out to the movies a couple times a month, even if it's on my own. Just gives me something to do or see that's new. I spend time with my parents or family where and when I can. I absolutely adore my three nephews. I do like to geek it out at times. It can't be helped. It's in my blood.
I'm also relatively good at giving massages, in an untrained, amateur way. Physical contact has always been a thing I enjoy and people seem to enjoy it when I give them neck and shoulder rubs or even full back-massages. I just have that combination of good touch reflexes that let me react to subtle clues.
I'm also surprisingly logical (when I put my mind to it), good at puzzles, as well as have an innate knack for picking up odd bits of lore. I'm amazed at the little bits of useless trivia that I seem to know.
Movies are Dramas, hands down, followed as Sci-Fi, (respectable) Fantasy, or Action flicks. Though I do have other favorites, and the current few include: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Star Trek (2009), Serenity, Man on Fire, Million Dollar Baby, The Princess Bride, Dead Poets Society, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, How to Train Your Dragon, The Shawshenk Redemption, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Gran Torino, Serenity and Firefly.
Television starts with my usual weekly watch schedule: House, Lie to Me, Haven, Fringe, Glee, Castle, and moves on to others, like Eureka, Firefly, The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Big Bang Theory, Star Trek.
As for music, I'm hugely into Celtic/New Age music and Classical, Evanescence, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Bare Naked Ladies, Evanescense, Peter Gabriel, The Beatles, Tool, The Foo Fighters and many, many others. Just don't give me rap.
Food.. well, I'm definitely carnivorous. I like good cuts of beef, hams, chicken, turkey, I even enjoy my vegetables. Of course, everyone needs an indulgence or two, and mine are cinnamon buns (no raisins please) and Entenmann's Ultimate Crumb Cake.
Next on the list is music. It helps me unwind, relax and just lose myself.
Third is definitely my friends and family. Yes, I know they aren't things. But I couldn't do without them. I also count physical contact and intimacy in this.
Fourth are games. I love the feel of being able to compete in a friendly manner and a feel of escapism is always good to help me unwind and be myself.
Fifth? Now we start to get difficult. I'm a simple man with simple needs so this would have to be a little solitude now and again. I need a chance to become me again.
The last (and least) think I could never do without is my big, comfy bed. It took me a long time before I could get myself a bed I fit in (relatively speaking). I'm not very eager to do without. And remember, it's not just a recreational toy!
One of my favorite quotes:
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm. - Winston Churchill
Nah. The truth is I talk a good deal about pessimism but deep down, I'm a closet optimist.
I'm very much laid back with a strong spontaneous side. I'm not much for lots of drama, but I'm always out for a few laughs and a good time. I don't sweat the small things, life's too short.
