My self-summary
Nice, intelligent, different from the "normal" guy, looking for new friends. I enjoy reading, having "deep" discussion, movies, discovering new art, playing sports, being polite, running, animals, the outdoors, wine tasting, thunderstorms, weekend brunch, find good tattoos interesting, can be somewhat shy, and am an interesting mix of athletic and geek. I am a big believer in the sense of touch. Other than being comfortable, money and having "things" don't mean much to me. I try to be a good person and expect it from others too. Looking for a nice, intelligent woman with a great sense of humor. She should be honest, willing to try new things, and be able to hold a conversation (silly or serious). A love of nature is a plus, as is being athletic as I love to play sports with people in my life. Weird is good too, even if it just means open mindedness or simply being "different" :)

I would love a new basketball, yoga or trail running buddy. Someone to take me rafting/kayaking would also be quite nice ;)

Reasons it's good to have me around: I'll make you laugh, I give good advice, I'm chivalrous, I'm an excellent motivator, I'm good at giving honest compliments, and I am a pretty decent masseuse. :)

My best friend recently told me that I make everything lighter when I am around. I found it to be one of the greatest compliments ever :)

***Update for clarification. I am happily in a relationship and am just looking for new friends.***
What I’m doing with my life
Searching for happiness....

"Standing on the beach, letting the tide run over you, wondering what you’re gonna do with your life, and you’re hyper-aware of every sound and vision at that moment, and even though things aren’t perfect,you’re in love with just existing..."

"If you have any doubts as to how to end a movie, set everything on fire."
I’m really good at
Scrabble, sports, empathy, listening, friendship, boosting other people's self esteem through honest compliments... I am also a talented researcher. I had better be since I do it for a living :)

Six things I could never do without
8 things- My Cat,a book that I am "hooked on", laughter, affection, trail running, the water, my best friend, balance.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophical questions, tattoo ideas, book outlines, life in general...., I always have an incredible number of thoughts running through the labyrinth of my mind :)
On a typical Friday night I am
planning an evening with friends, reading, playing a sport, or spending quality kitty time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Touch is very important to me.
When I get to the end of a good book I often leave the last page unread for weeks at a time. I just don't want the story to end...
I like romantic comedies :)
You should message me if
You are genuinely nice, compassionate, and have a good sense of humor.
I am looking for someone that makes everyday adventures fun. That is true happiness.
I would also love a buddy for sports, trail running, or if you are someone that would like to go see horror/sci fi/geek movies with me :)
My favorite places to play scrabble are in the park, on the beach, poolside, and at a bar. Massive bonus points to anyone that would join me.
New friendships are also always appreciated.

Q: "Why would you want to look like Sherlock Holmes, who are you trying to attract exactly?"
A: "Intelligent women" :)
