"I'm lookin' for another kind of love...the kind that likes to leap without a shove." - Aerosmith, The Other Side
I hate trying to put labels on myself or others, but I'll play this little game.
ONE-PARAGRAPH SELF-SUMMARY: I do not use the following adjectives lightly. They truly represent me. I am a fit, fiercely loyal, quirky, eccentric, somewhat kinky, free-thinking, animal-loving, self-sufficient, environmentally-aware, artistic and creative, open-minded, pro-2nd Amendment, self-employed vegetarian night owl with an active mind and active body who always has at least one pie-in-the-sky project in the works and who is looking for his best friend, partner in crime, lover, muse and fellow zombie hunter. I want to be inspired by my partner and I want to inspire her.
KINKY, I said? Yes. See if you can find my FETISH in my profile, if you look closely. :)
PRO-2ND AMENDMENT, I said?. Yes, but I do not own dozens of guns and I do not expect you to want to own or carry one.
You're still aching for more? Okay, you asked for it.
I love to buy or find used RETRO or VINTAGE items instead of buying new ones and reusing and re-purposing items from bygone eras because they have character and I can save them from the landfill. I own a "Forrest Gump"-style suitcase and a beaten-up vintage briefcase that I got at a second-hand store for only $6 bucks!
I am going to make saying "SWELL" cool again. If you hear someone say it, chances are that I am responsible for it.
I have the ASS OF A 20-YEAR OLD. You could bounce a quarter off of that thing...go ahead, bounce a quarter off of that thing.
I am always trying to build a HEALTHIER MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT, am oddly at peace and in control of my demons, EXERCISE on a very regular basis and COOK AND BAKE VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING FROM SCRATCH.
I will MAKE A FOOL OF MYSELF, if it means getting my friends to laugh and smile.
You don't have to be interested in all the same things. I would just hope that you would APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT I AM PASSIONATE about certain things and respect them...especially my TIGHT MUSCLE ASS.
Do you like John Cusack? Then maybe you'll like me too.
The best way to describe my general personality is to say that I think that John Cusack would be the best choice to play me in my life's story. A typical character that he would play is one that has an uneasiness to himself and is sometimes lovingly neurotic. He is charming in a very quirky and unconventional way. He often has some demons, but deals with them the best that he can and is not afraid of them. He grows on you as time goes on and sticks to your soul. He is usually the reluctant, humble hero because deep down inside, under all of his eccentricities and neuroses, he is a good, strong and honorable person who does what has to be done. Generally speaking, I think that describes my personality fairly well.
Now some more detailed stuff.
I have never been a serial dater and have always been a ONE-WOMAN-TYPE-OF-GUY. Unlike most profiles that you may read, I don't mind if you don't necessarily have things all figured out. WE'LL FIGURE THEM OUT TOGETHER, as long as you are somewhat self-aware and willing to try to make yourself a better person by learning from your past. After all, an important point of any relationship is to help each other become better people. Isn't it? I'm assuming that your problem is not how to be able to hide more DEAD HITCHHIKERS because you ran out of room in the crawlspace under your house...I have to draw the line somewhere, and my line is hiding dead bodies...well, alright, I'll help you hide them. See, I told you that I was fiercely loyal.
I would like my partner to be a "WHY NOT? person and not a "why?" person. In other words, when I come up with an idea for a project, a spontaneous day or weekend trip, a new idea in the bedroom or wanting to make homemade pancakes at 3am, then I want her to say "why not." Life is for living, so live it and enjoy all things, big and small.
If we can't figure things out, then we'll shake out heads, laugh and sail to the Caribbean and become beach bums, while making our money by painting faces on coconuts and selling them to the tourists...JUST AS LONG AS WE'RE TOGETHER.
I am looking for someone who I am crazy about and who I can trust totally and without question. I would like to find someone who has a CERTAIN TWINKLE IN HER EYE and a little bit of A CHIP ON HER SHOULDER so that everyone knows that she will LIVE HER LIFE ON HER OWN TERMS. We would enjoy the wonderful, shake our heads at the strange and laugh at the ridiculous.
IN BRIEF, I NEED MY PARTNER IN CRIME, MY MUSE, MY BEST FRIEND.
