Hey there, I'm Roy.
I strongly believe common interests are integral in starting communication, but differing interests will lead to growth for both members of a relationship.
I can be really shy and quiet at times, especially when I get around people I don't know. Once I get to know a person, especially knowing what we have in common, I will open up. I'm not a partier. I prefer not to drink alcohol. I do not like its taste or effects and I honestly don't understand its appeal.
I really enjoy classic movies. I've got a book called 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. It is a goal of mine to see as many of them as I can. I've seen well over 300 of them at this point.
Friends and coworkers tell me I'm smart, nice, caring, funny and kind.
I'm take each day as it comes. For the most part, its pretty predictable. Work, eat, sleep. While I generally like life being predictable, a little change in routine would be nice. I have a bunch of ideas of places I'd like to visit (East coast, Europe, etc.), but I think I'd enjoy myself a great deal more if I could share the experience with someone else.
Besides my full-time job at my local library, I also have a small-business involving the digital restoration of old, public domain books. It started as a hobby.
On a typical Friday night I am working until 9, then I go home. Actually, its like that every day of the week. I haven't had much reason to go out...but I'd love to have a reason.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Dinner, movie, athletic event...any of the above. I'm not picky. It is the company that would matter.
Sometime, however, I'd like to drive out to the middle of nowhere, park on a country road, lie down on the hood of my car and stare up at the night. See the real star-lit sky. You miss so much of it being near the city.
