TL; dr at start- I am intelligent, random and goofy, enjoy many physical activities such as bouldering and diving, dislike poor grammar, and it is to be assumed I'm amazing in bed.
I'm a very happy-go-lucky person. I've the tendency to be a dork. I'm not very self conscious, but I am aware of those around me and try to treat them with at least marginal courtesy. I WILL do a random handstand, or skip-to-my-loo down the sidewalk, or sing a silly song (terribly) in public- however I will NOT moon people, or shout random curse words near children, etc. perhaps not the best examples but they do draw a very obvious line. and if you do enjoy those last 2...grow up please?
I'm an intelligent person who can hold a conversation, though I'm better with written word than spoken. I'm I fairly laid back person, I'm willing to do just about anything and find a way to enjoy it. I'm a social person; I can pull a common thread from almost anyone and have a good conversation, and get along with most people. I'm a bit reserved though, more of a listener than a talker, and when meeting new people tend to do this more until I can understand a bit about who they are, and what can safely end enjoyably be talked about. I'm an open book, I'm willing to share anything thats asked, but until you turn to that page I may or may not think of it. I love the outdoors, Bouldering, diving (scuba), camping, backpacking, snowboarding, hiking, but while I've done it all on my own I've found its always more enjoyable with someone else, and don't get out to do these things as much as I'd like. I love to cook, and do a decent job of it, so far my complaints have been louder than anyone else's (I'm a bit of a perfectionist when I do things) I keep rambling you'll soon stop reading, so hopefully there's enough here to spark a little intrigue without giving away ALL my secrets.
I am easy going, flirty, and random
As with everyone, I do have my shortcomings. NEVER say irregardless in my presence. its not a damn word, and strangely enough probably one of my biggest pet peeves. weird, right? I have what might be labeled as an addiction: I like video games. not nearly as detrimental to my health as smoking, nor as costly as being a gambler or an alcoholic. its not a hardcore gamer thing, just...something I do to fill my time, when not reading. I CAN be pulled out of it. For those who understand, this did once mean WoW. I have been clean of that horrible addiction for several years, and have no desire to ever go back.
oh yes. and I need more pictures up, I know. the couple "sexy-man" pictures I have up are lovely, and represent a part of me, but I'm not stuck up. I just don't generally take photo's of myself, except when dressed up and drinking. I'll work on that.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First off: if you declare that you're "traditional" so I should plan and execute the first date entirely without your imput, we won't get along. Can I do that successfully? Of course I can. But a first date means I don't know you, and can't anticipate your desires or issues. This also flows to tradition of the man always making the first moves... This is a terrible idea. This encourages men to push beyond what you're comfortable with, just to find your line. Just sayin. Back to the date question! First dates should be planned TOGETHER, for everyone's comfort, and these depend on what the other's tastes and comfort levels are. I'm not opposed to anything, I've had first dates that included me making us dinner at both her house and mine- going out to a movie, resturant, microbrew, sushi or even a walk at waterfront are also viable options to start the morning/afternoon/evening date. I do my best to be open to all options. While I understand that a first date IS about first impressions, I don't believe you cannot have an amazing first date in an unusual first setting, such as a bowling alley.
Ps: if you shave off your eyebrows, and then draw them back in... It'll never work between us. You think that looks good, but it looks TERRIBLE. Unless you're going through kemo. In that case, you do whatever makes you feel pretty.
