How can a man adequately describe himself in something as one dimensional as the written word? There is so much that goes into a person and how he makes another feel that are difficult to express with a keyboard. While I am no E. L. James or Stephen King, I will do my best to describe myself.
I am as comfortable dressed up, walking through a downtown urban area of a major city in search of fine dining as I am trekking off trail through the mountains searching for prey. I can, and do, enjoy both equally and would be sad if I were to find out I had to give one of those activities up for good.
I am equally at ease playing and roughhousing with a group of preschoolers as I am hotly debating the technical merits of a lawsuit with high powered attorneys. While I enjoy both, I only argue with attorneys for profit, but will roughhouse with children for the laughter and sheer joy of it.
I am as skilled at repairing automobiles and houses, or chopping wood or growing a garden as I am at preparing a lecture on physics or engineering ethics.
I have been fortunate in that I have been able to travel though most of the lower 48 states and several countries. I have traveled both for business and for pleasure and intend to do a lot more of both.
I believe something is missing in the modern American man. I was brought to age by men who were shaped by the great depression and WWII and who had an older view of what men were supposed to be like. I believe that men should be strong, compassionate and gentle, willing to make decisions based on a consideration of who they are with. I will therefore never show up for a date and ask “what would you like to do.” If you have ever seen the movie second hand lions, I had men like the uncles influence me and I hope when I am that age I will be a lot like both of them.
While I do have an earned black belt in a martial art and maintain a level of physical fitness, I have learned that women like a man who makes them feel safe and who can make them laugh. Now that I have my career in a good place I plan on beginning work on becoming a clown Ninja to expand my social options.
The use of deadpan in humor is one of my favorite tactics and sometimes it takes my college students months to get a clue as to when I am serious or not. I tend towards playful sarcasm. It may be out of control, my own mother once bought me a shirt that said “Sarcasm is just another free service I provide.” My own mother!
As I look back over this, I cringe at the fact that many of my paragraphs begin with “I”. But, after all this is supposed to be where I tell you about me to see if I can ignite a bit of interest.
I have been privileged to get acquainted with many single people and know what I am looking for. I am looking for an engaging and well spoken woman who enjoys talking about her passions and interests; a woman who is comfortable in varied environments and enjoys new experiences. I have learned that for me, chemistry is a combination of physical attraction and the ability to converse and relate in a manner that there is a mental/emotional connection. I'm looking for that hard to describe chemistry mixed with compatibility that most of us are seeking.
