yup, looking for something different.. every profile says the same thing "I love the outdoors", "I love to laugh" well yeah! duh, who doesn't?? and looking for "intelligent conversation" how many people go looking for conversation that is dumb?
and yes, some people do read profiles. of course, the people that need to read this have stopped at the pictures already, but just in case you're still reading,,,, If all you post are pictures, you're telling the world the only thing you have to offer is looks;)
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.
