If I had to describe myself in three words, it would be "Does not follow directions."
I prefer people who are willing to be direct and speak their minds and solve problems rationally.
I believe that anyone who loves reading Tolkien is worth talking to. I enjoy archery and fencing, rock climbing, and paintballing but only occasionally have the time.
I've been a teacher and an e-learning specialist. I've done a little bit of work with augmented reality, but right now I'm doing web development and design. It pays the bills so I can focus on things I enjoy.
I can be sarcastic at times. That doesn't always go over well on the internet. But in my defense, it doesn't always go over well in real life, either.
(b) Groundhog Day, Lord of the Rings, Real Genius
(c) Rock, Country, J-Pop, Modern Gaelic, Alternative, 80s, musicals. Gaelic Storm, Country, Folk. Papaya, Aqua, Toy Box ... almost anything except Rap and heavy metal.
(d) Health food, Italian, $4-7/bar dark chocolate (The proper stuff), toffee, fruit, vegetables. I'm strict vegetarian, but not evangelical about it.
...I've been thinking about this question. The only time it actually moves the conversation forward in some way is when it lists a dealbreaker. Like a religious person lists "God" and an avowed atheist says to themselves "I'm outta here." Because really, people listing "air" here in an attempt to be clever aren't really telling us anything we don't already know.... okay, I kindof did that, but I was actually being clever. At least a little, right?
Anyways, since this question only serves to list dealbreakers I'd suggest to anyone reading this that they re-interpret it in that fashion and list things that they need in a relationship, specifically.
All the ways that my brain tries to lie to me.
How people seem to believe that they understand the experiences and conditions of others so much better than they actually do.
I love hanging out with people, but I need more down time than average to recharge.
