First things first. If you consider talking about Hollywood bs, TV, or the like intelligent conversation, then please see you way to the back button.
As for the headline it's a quote from one of my favorite songs "Introdiction by Scroobius Pip"
I am looking for a spark, something to get me going. Been a long furlough and I feel out of place. I'm not just looking for a hook up, I grew out of that some time ago. Being as such, there is no sense in me being anything but the real me. I have decided that I'm going to put up on here just who it is I am, and just who it is I am looking for. I have learned some things from the dances I've shared thus far. Settling for a few minor things that you wish were different never does anyone a lick of good, Im not going to change you and your not going to change me, so I figure lets just start right there. If I don't fit your bill and/or you don't fit mine then no harm no foul, game goes on uninterrupted, or shall I say line stays in the water while I nap ;)
I'm a full time dad of a 12yo girl and have been single for long enough now that I think its acceptable to start looking for a partner for this amazing ride we are on. Because of past experiences I have learned that its going to be quite some time before I bring anyone home to meet her. And likewise If you have kids, which of course I am super cool with, I don't want to be meeting them until we know there's something really right about us.
I would say my personality type is somewhat dreamer with a good dose of doer mixed in. I am currently working at starting my own business which has been no means an easy road, but no one ever talks about the people who gave up. Between getting that going and hanging out with my daughter I havent made a lot of time for just me and someone reminded me the other day that I need to do that before I become a grumpy old man. I think it is important for anyone who seriously reads this, and is still interested in finding out more, to know that while I am stereotypically manly in some ways I am also stereotypically feminine in some ways as well. Before we go to far down that path let me start with saying I have known I was going to have a daughter and had her name picked out (which it is her name now) when I was 11yo. About that time in life I started reading my moms Cosmo magazines and had a really strong desire to learn all I could about females. Not all my learning, thank God, came from the cosmo but it started early on and has continued ever since. I guess all the studying really put me in touch with my feminine side. That has really played out well for me being that I ended up a single full time dad to the girl I did :) Now thats out of the way. I like to be romanced, believe in massage exchange and I'm really good at it. I like being in the kitchen and have grown accustom to all the chores around the house, not just the ones that require gas powered tools. I can be sensitive at times and I am not the least bit afraid to admit that I have cried more than once to that stupid Cheerio commercial where the little boy asks his mom if she use to eat cheerios with her mom and that in a way thats kinda like nana's having breakfast with them.
I believe in debate even if it gets somewhat heated. To know the difference between that and arguing is a big plus in my book. There is a lot of crazy ass stuff going on all over the place with many sides to every story and its quite possible we aren't going to take the same side with every single issue. If just not talking about it is the route you generally take or you don't feel as if you should actually do any research or have never done any in order to prove the validity of your stance then I'm probably not right for you. Facts win debates, not regurgitated stuff you heard on the news.
Hmmm, what else? Oh here's a biggie. I plan on living in a cob house someday in the not so distant future. If you could never see yourself living in one, then again, I am probably not right for you. If you don't know what one of those is you can go to youtube and search "Cob Houses- live debt free with sustainable development", more than likely you are going to be really glad you did. I also have a strong desire to become grocery store free.
I am looking for someone who is a giver like I am, someone who knows they have talent in something, or is at least searching for that talent. I am looking for someone that wants to get out and do fun stuff, who is available to do that time to time kid free for a bit while we get to know and explore each other. Someone who likes to walk where its okay to pee/hike, rain or shine. Someone who can get lost in the music with me till we find ourselves making our own sheet music.
Maybe that's a lot for just an introduction, but more than likely its exactly what it was supposed to be and if so please write, It's not 1945 anymore. Oh, and for any English snobs out there I apologize for my grammatical errors which I am sure there are some even in this very sentence. It's late, I have been trying to rewrite this ever since I scribbled out the first one a couple weeks ago and now at least a better rough draft is done. I am more than happy to stay after class and do what it takes to make up for it ;)
