The Doctor

People who get me like me - people who don't I probably just confuse.

For those who buy into the whole Myers - Briggs personality type thing, I'm an INFJ type so I function more on emotion and intuition than pure logic. Mostly it works for me but on very rare occasions the whole emotion thing kicks in and rationality goes right out the window. Guess I'm a bit of an idealist. Other than that I'm pretty damn tough and I'm not particularly quiet and I'm certainly not a pessimist , but I'll never be one of those endlessly optimistic, hyper competitive "success at any cost" loud mouth extrovert types.

Why I'm on here: I'm looking to meet someone to date, hang out with and make a real connection with...especially the connection part. I've found that two people don't always have to have exactly the same common interests to connect on a deeper level. Sometimes two people ARE extensions of each other...Yin and Yang, right and left, light and dark. Like images in a mirror. Sometimes those are the best relationships whether they're romantic or not.
I'm looking for someone to laugh with...someone to have actual conversations about ridiculous and not so ridiculous things. I talk to lots of people daily, but talk is all it is.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm really enjoying my grown kids realization that I'm not as full of crap about EVERYTHING as they thought I was, though I'm probably still full of crap about somethings. Working,thinking about the future and trying to keep my sanity. So far,so good.

Dust Of Snow

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I rued.

Robert Frost

I'm always amazed at how the little events interconnect with each other to form the big picture. The choreographed dance of Life.
I’m really good at
My job, being a peacemaker, getting the point, really listening to what someone says, fixing stuff, breaking stuff, fixing it again.
The first things people usually notice about me
My kids say I can look intimidating. I don't really see it myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ray Bradbury and Philip K. Dick are my favorite fiction writers and Dandelion Wine is my favorite book. I highly recommend it. H.P. Lovecraft. Big fan of David Mitchell.
I'll read anything- fiction, non-fiction, how-to manuals, the dictionary, Dr Seuss. I just like to read.

I'm kind of an classic movie nerd. The Searchers, Night of the Hunter, To Kill a Mockingbird, Casablanca and anything by Hitchcock. 2001- the book and the movie.

Glengarry Glenross, In America, The Station Agent, Ghostworld, American Beauty, the Evil Dead series. Clerks still makes me laugh.

Pink Floyd ,Porcupine Tree,Richard Shindell,Cry Cry Cry Jimmy Lafave etc. Music is such a personal thing.Tool,Buffalo Springfield, Neil Young, Jethro Tull, The Decemberists,Alison Krauss, M83, Max Richter. Classical music helped me through a bad spell several years ago and I'm eternally grateful to it,if that's possible. Baroque and English composers.

Like all foods except cooked cauliflower. Ugh.
Six things I could never do without
For better or for worse, these are the "things" that have become so ingrained in my life I would have a hard time getting along without them:

Transportation, a steady income, some sort of communication device, Vans (comfortable shoes are priceless), air conditioning and clean socks.

These aren't really "things" in the general sense, but they're many, many times more important to me :

My kids, hope, music, books, abstract thought, the end of the work week, a fire on a cool evening and the civilized, more important things of life.

"Dr. Chandra, will I dream?"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out or staying home with the girls (my dogs).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have like thirty pairs of Vans shoes. I don't even know how I ended up with so many.
You should message me if
You don't mind a little dog hair
You believe that life isn't always "this or that" and "black or white"- mostly it's a little of both with lots of other surprises thrown in.
