Well, I'd have jumped from my tree,
And I'd have danced like the king of the eyesores,
And the rest of our lives would have fared well..."
Love is as simple as being given a choice between being with somebody, and the winning lottery ticket, and having it be no choice at all. That being said, I don't know if I've ever been with someone who would have chosen me over the winning ticket.
Don't get me wrong. I'm still an optimist. I want to see where it goes, because you never know. But I promise I'll have the decency to tell you if I think I'm not the one for you, or you're not the one for me. There's also a halfway decent chance that I'll tell you that you're pretty amazing, as I have a tendency to see the best in people.
So why are you here and what are you looking for? A good time? A cure for a broken heart? A life partner? Let's find out...
As my head fell in the basket,
And was everybody dancing on the casket?"
-They Might Be Giants
I'm an educator. There is so much good that can be done in the world, but first we have to have a better understanding of the world around us. Nothing has made this more apparent than the current election. Trump supporters please swipe left or whatever it is you do on here. I also have always had a passion for writing and performing music. Maybe I'll play you a song sometime.
And I'm balancing history books up on my head,
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase,
If you love something, give it away..."
I'm good at listening; knowing random trivia; caring about what you care about; funny accents; sex; humility; irony
I see the images I own,
I see more colour in your eyes,
Than the reflections from purple skies..."
-Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
A general poll has revealed the answer is my eyes. Always surprised it's not my posture, or possibly my resting bitch face.
We enjoy all the wrong moves,
We dance to all the wrong songs..."

So we threw the radio onto the fire
It felt good to watch it
Burn away to nothing ..."
In no particular order:
Music, friends, books, my kids, laughter, imagination.
I've been dying to tell you anything,
You long to hear,
Cuz that's just who I am this week..."
Every time I get on one of these dating sites, I fall into a familiar pattern of gradually changing aspects of my profile to meet other people's expectations, until I eventually get so fed up with myself that I delete my account.
So this time I am committing to remaining true to myself no matter what. You may or may not like what you see, but at least you will know that I am not playing any games. What you see is what you get.
But Friday never hesitates..."
My Friday night companions are frequently a beer and Netflix. Save me from myself. Or recommend a show.
In a whisper or handshake sending a sign..."
-She Wants Revenge
Wouldn't you like to know?
So one day if you're bored,
By all means call me..."
Message me if you want to. It's really not that complicated.
