I’m pleased that you decided to stop by for a peek. Here’s hoping it’s time well spent.
I’m no different than most. I’m not at all a fan of online dating and can’t wait to never come back.
As cliché as it is my simple goal is to find someone who has the ingredients to be a best friend and, with that as the leaping point, we dedicate ourselves to making it work as a lifelong romance.
I’ve lead a generous life in terms of travel having been to more than forty countries. Some of them multiple times. As we all know traveling educates and humbles us. I plan to stay modest and travel forever.
I’ve likely included too many pictures of me at the top of mountains. There’s no satisfaction for me like being at high-altitude and reaching a peak. To say it is Euphoric is selling it short. I love going up; and for that I endure coming down. I hike, I trail-run, I play some sports. I can’t see not being active. I know stuff about nutrition and listen eagerly to new concepts and advice.
I have a career that I like and I go to school part-time to feed my ambitious nature to climb even higher. To my mind my work doesn’t define me however.
From phones, to fashion, to buildings, to furniture – Great design really appeals to me. I like to be around fine things to remind myself of the creativity and amazing things that humans accomplish. I have lofty aspirations of how I can contribute to that.
Books, insightful word-smithing, art and inspired creativity feed me and I’m endlessly thirsty for information. Widely speaking I usually have some useless knowledge on most topics.
Movies have always been a big part of my world and I’ve seen so many. In the last decade TV drama’s have improved markedly so I’m often binging on a pirated series. I hate commercials and rarely veg in front of a tube. There’s too much to see and do for that.
Learning is something that I’m addicted to. Dam good addiction to have. I’m sometimes precocious and usually up for adventure. Discovering a new restaurant together seems like a great date night to me.
Ideally you’re after something with a foundation for commitment. That’s undeniably heavy when we don’t even know one another though. Without a doubt I take some pride in helping to elicit smiles from you and with luck; you will laugh. Laughter is so important. I joke. I play. Flirting should be nothing but fun.
If we’re laughing, if we’re touching when we’re laughing, if we’re laughing when we’re affectionate - then we’re doing things right. I’m communicative, not perfectly, but my default is set at the high bar. To get the connection I’d like to have then language, words, and body are key. I’m sexual and believe that’s a language unto itself. People talk in so many more ways than only using words. I’m not fluent in them all, but doesn’t mean I can’t try to be adept at all.
We’ve all had some disappointments along the way. What came of this for me, so far, is that I treat the people around me even better than I once did. I am thoughtful and this is always remarked upon. My spirit is generous.
There’s strength in vulnerability. This wasn’t always so apparent to me, but I’ve grown. Not sure I’ll grow anymore since I have spent time with this idea: As we age we only become more clearly ourselves.
I’d like to be around someone who wants me to participate in her life as much as I want her to participate in mine.
Maybe some of what I wrote above resonates with you. Maybe you’ve heard the saying, “Who, being loved, is poor?” There are untold riches to be discovered over here. Best you come see about the treasures, and together we can map out the endless paths to the next ones.
If we’re going to end up dating longer term, we’re likely going to fight, so on the first date might as well dress up in Sumo suits and whack each other silly.
Laughter disarms us all.
We should go seek out new restaurants - we live in such a rich culinary city we have an obligation to discover them all.
At worst we should find/build an obstacle course and race for the candy.
