Just as an aside: A photo that shows true emotion will catch my eye over a "sexy" photo any day.
I am looking to invest a lot of REAL time in to someone special...and legitimately do my best to make their life more enjoyable. I enjoy getting to know a girl's hobbies and taking an interest in the stuff she likes to do. It's fun to learn new things :) I have been told I like "little elf girls"....so yeah...now you know, haha.
I take very good care of my body (although I don't want to 'douche' up my photos with a shirtless one to prove it) and am active, motivated, dedicated, goal-oriented, and want someone who is trustworthy and has some DRIVE in their life. That can be drive for anything positive. I just like to see passion for SOMETHING in them....and it can't just be their job. I want to see their eyes light up when they are doing what they love most. I have a strange array of skills...many of which shouldn't seem to reside within the same person. There aren't (m)any like me. My photos on here may not show it, but I am NOT a bum, and I enjoy having nice things. Although I often find the most joy in the small 'meaningless' things in life...I sometimes lean towards being a little materialistic...but you can continually smack me back in to place, haha :) I am a mix of a creative/curious-minded ex skateboarder....a partial hippy....and business man who can hold intelligent conversations... and knows where he is going. I love being a dork and being 'cute' with my girlfriend. I'm definitely a believer in romance. I have had a 5 year, and 3 year back-to-back, and am now feeling quite lost. It has been just over 4 years since my last relationship and that doesn't mean I have been whoring it up. I've become a hermit...of sorts. Not really. Kind of...haha. My scene seems to have developed in to a crew of models/actresses/photographers, as of late...and I have discovered more than ever that it doesn't matter how attractive a girl is if you can't find common motivations and interests. It is just not gonna happen. I won't even try. Though I am not necessarily looking for a complete 'bombshell', I am still very picky. I give my all and don't have short relationships...so I have to be careful and picky. Sorry. Not sorry. Getting hurt or hurting someone just isn't worth it. Just because I do some work within that industry does NOT mean I am AT ALL a douchebag. If you are the type that is looking for douchebag qualities WHATSOEVER, please move along. You'll be quite disappointed. I am also checking out this site because, like everyone else on here, I don't want to mess around in bars/clubs. Just finding people who are looking for a hook-up will never be my prerogative...and that seems to be what that scene is all about. I want something REAL, and I always go far, far above and beyond the call of 'duty' once I find it
There is way too much to tell about myself so I am not attempting to sum myself up on this site. If I see something in you, then you'll learn all about me....in person.
I also see that there's lots of people on here that are new to town. If you are looking to meet some great people and chill, then I'm down for that too. No hook-ups, haha. I just love people in general, and meeting new ones is always fun :)
Sidenote: I did that RELATIONSHIP NEEDS TEST on here, and I wouldn't weigh my Preferred Expressions of Affection OR Sexuality sections too heavily. Those ones are not very accurate...and I don't know how to get rid of them.
Random things I want to learn in the near future: Cooking (NO PROGRESS). A new language (IN PROGRESS). Yoga (CHECK!). Lumosity (IN PROGRESS... and I've got a pretty high BPI, MOFOs! Haha)
I recently started holding art parties at my house. If you are so inclined, and I like you, maybe you can come to one!
[I am also a wannabe grammar Nazi]
I am looking for:
An adventurer. Someone who is empathetic, stylish, a dreamer AND a go-getter. A great communicator. A caring friend. A 'smart-cookie'. Someone insightful. Someone who is going to be a good mother some day. A joker and a giggler. A romantic. Someone who puts others first. A beautiful girl who is a great kisser with a sexy voice. A positive example for others. Someone with a unique taste in music. Someone with lots of patience. Someone emotional...that knows when and how to be logical. Someone health conscious, who enjoys staying fit. Someone who strives to go to sleep a little better of a person in some way each night, over the night before.
"We are engineered as goal-seeking mechanisms. We are built that way. When we have no personal goal which we are interested in and which means something to us, we are apt to go around in circles, feel lost and find life itself aimless and purposeless. We are built to conquer environments, solve problems, achieve goals and we find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve."
