I am not "Mr. Right"
I am not "Mr. Right Now"
I am "Mr. Let's Get To Know Each Other and See Where It Goes"
I love dancing (alone, because I dance like a white boy). I love concerts (so I can yell at them to turn it down because it's too loud.) I love children (so I can shake my cane at them and tell them to get off my lawn.) I have an odd sense of humor. I will either make you laugh or make you roll your eyes and think "what a nutcase.". And actually I am pretty good with kids.
In myself and others I value: honesty and communication, open-mindedness, intelligence and common sense, knowing when to be an adult and when to play. How someone looks means much less to man than who they are inside.
I am not religious though I could be considered a Deist. I have my own life philosophy and code I follow. It changes as I continue to grow as a person for the benefit of myself and those around me.
I'm not vanilla.
Traits I avoid:
* Pushing religious views on me
* Pushing political view on me
* Expecting to be swept off your feet and live happily ever in my * castle
* Lack of independence
* Drama (did I mention this one already?)
I don't expect much from this website and it has lived up to my expectations.
If it's your thing, on Myers-Briggs I am ENFP/ESFP. I fall at or on 50% between intuitive and sensing.
My ideal date: Dinner out, then cuddling on the couch while watching a movie. Ravaging you in bed will have to wait for at least the second date.
Presently I'm trying to figure out how to work less and play more. I would prefer to skip the work and just get a paycheck. Unfortunately I wasn't born into the right family, I don't have the right connections, nor do I have enough blackmail material against a major evil corporation to pull it off.
I am well-traveled. I have lived in a place where the sun set for 4 months out of the year. I have walked through every timezone on the planet just by walking in a large circle. (There are only two places on the planet you can do this.) I have stood on top of glaciers and walked miles through burning sands. I have hiked barefoot through the snow in a mountain pass. I have swam through an underground stream where the ceiling glowed. I have stood on a beach in winter with my bare feet in the sand warmed by a natural hot spring. I have not killed a grizzly with my bare hands nor would I want to try.
My days of travel are mostly gone and I've become a home-body. I still take the occasional camping or hiking trip. When I'm out I love being out in the forest with nobody for miles. I love waterfalls, thunderstorms, and the sound of rain. I love sunsets, walking on the beach, and poking dead things with a stick.
I tend to consider myself a cat person but I recently acquired a 1-yr-old Shina Ibu and he's turning me into a dog person as well.
Solving problems by over-thinking and coming up with complex solutions before I find the simple answer.
My tastes are very eclectic when it comes to entertainment. I lean toward science-fiction or fantasy, especially if it is well written or does not exceed my capacity for suspension of disbelief. I like the occasional action movie for mind candy. I find old horror movies entertaining, especially along the lines of the original Evil Dead and Army of Darkness, and more recently Cabin in the Woods and Ash vs Evil Dead. I occasionally like romantic comedies like 10 Things I Hate About You. My favorite novels are the Honor Harrington series by David Weber.
I also like anime but only subject it to others with someone else who enjoys anime. With exceptions...My Neighbor Totoro.
Musical tastes cover decades. I pretty much like everything except rap, hip-hop, and some country/western.
I am not much of a foodie.
On the rare occasions I drink, I enjoy dessert wines, ciders, and stout beers.
There were times in my life I had everything. And there were times I had nothing.
I've learned I can live with nothing except the love and support of my friends.
I have an analytic mind but I am easily distra.... ooooh, a Shiny Squirrel!
A friend told me I have a cat brain. Easily distracted, but when I lock on an idea I play with it for hours until it's no longer moving. Then I come back and start tossing it about in the air and chasing it again.
