I am a deeply spiritual person, I practice meditation and magick, but I do not subscribe to any religion. My relationship with what I understand to be the equivalent of what people call “God” is my own. I have a strong set of morals and I don’t see the point in lying, so I just don’t bother. I am no good at lying anyways. I think my actions through. I take responsibility for my shortcomings and spend every day trying to improve myself and my situation.
I enjoy learning new things. I like to have discussions, and I like to be proven wrong because it means I am learning something new, but admittedly I usually find that I have thought the things I am willing to argue over more than the people I am arguing with, and oftentimes I don’t learn anything at all. I am not one to interject into conversations or argue over topics that I know little to nothing about, If the topic is something I am ignorant on, I try to listen and learn.
I enjoy watching a TV show after work, or playing video games for a couple hours a week, but I am not really hooked on either. I have been reading more lately, and will sometimes just go to Starbucks, grab a coffee and read a book cover to cover. I don’t like gradually reading a book, I am more of a binge reader.
I enjoy sculpting. I worked on a few independent films a couple years back, doing special effects. It was fun, but honestly I am way more interested in just sculpting. I am slow to start for some reason, but once I have started on a project I have a need to finish it. In the independent films I worked on, I was considered the assistant of the Special effects artist. The actual special effects artist taught me everything I know and let me do a lot of hands on, but I am not really all that competent in it by myself. I mainly had an interest in the sculpting and mold making technique so that is what I really paid attention to. I want to get better at painting my pieces, but I haven't had much practice in that. I really would like to practice painting in general, I enjoy art, but I don’t really think I am an artist.
I have been single for nearly a year, that doesn’t mean I haven’t dated, it merely means that I haven’t been in a committed relationship for almost a year. I have grown comfortable enough just doing my own thing and am definitely not desperate to find a connection, but I am hoping to find a steady relationship. When in a relationship I am loyal, when not in a relationship I am down for whatever.
I am looking for an intelligent, honest woman. Let me define honest, because that is really important to me. If you are looking for a long term relationship, let me know your intentions, if you are looking for a hook up, let me know your intentions. I am a pretty open and understanding guy, but don’t tell me you want a faithful monogamous relationship and cheat, if you want an open thing, say it. I don’t deal with liars, and if you lose my trust, you won’t get it back, and I am not the type to go down with the ship, I walk away. If you want loyal, hell I am your guy, once we have established commitment, I am commited, and you won’t ever have to worry that I am seeing anyone behind your back. If you don’t know what you want that is cool too, we can ride it out and see where things take us. If you are the woman in my life you will probably be the center of my world, I don't care if it is selfish to expect the same in return.
I want a woman who is also interested in self-improvement and it wouldn't hurt if that included artistic expression, but it isn't required. I don't want a woman who has completely let herself go. I don't expect you to be perfectly fit, I am not either, but I am not interested in large or BBW types, a few extra pounds is no problem. I try to be supportive and involved in the things that my partner does. If she wants to join a gym, or go vegan, I will support and attempt to do the same. That is what a partnership is to me. Two people sharing life, encouraging and pushing each other to be better, and building a world for themselves to live in together.
The first date is about a chance to meet you.
So I am thinking coffee, or drinks and maybe a game of pool or bowling. Somewhere where we can talk and MEET each other, which may or may not be followed with a nice meal, depending on how things go.
