I'm probably the farthest thing from average you're going to find. I've had an amazing and strange life. I remember ever story and love telling them! I am a jack of all trades... some of the jobs I've had include, crowd control specialist, event coordinator, personal assistant, and aquarium tech. But I'm in no way what I do. In fact, I can honestly say that I spend a great deal of time trying to think of a way to make what I do, what I love... and that's being artistic and socializing in a community environment. I love people! And not in some idealist way... I actually consider myself an optimistic realist. Meaning that I know the world can be a cruel, dark, place and I choose to have a positive attitude regardless. More then anything else I'd like to find someone that can "share in a kindred sense of humor about life and can extract joy from everything from the absurd to the mundane."
The most important thing in a relationship for me, is that the woman I'm with knows how to love and how to be loved. I have a caregivers personality and I'm looking for the same. Someone not so busy guarding their heart that they miss an opportunity, or are scared to act. Someone with the energy to give and receive love in a healthy, adult way. Someone who gets this.

Dating is my specialty. I love dating. Real dating. And not just at the start of a relationship... for the entirety of it!
Picnic, plays, street fairs, community events, dinners in or out... the world is just waiting to be scooped up and experienced! Sharing that with someone you care about is pure joy for me. Even when things don't go as planned... having someone that can laugh with you about it and roll on to the next thing... heaven.
