I'm in a good place right now, and things are on the up so I'm quite happy with where I'm at. Career wise, hobby-wise, and general well being are looking good for me. Now that I'm secure with myself I'd like to spend some time with someone high quality and have some lovely experiences.
I was out the other night at the ol' watering hole, and was for the first time, having difficulties fitting in. The boom boom of the music, strobe lights, tight crowd, and screaming people felt suddenly alienating. A group of girls started laughing and congratulating each other about how they successfully and covertly commandeered the men's bathroom and peed. A voice inside me said: 'I think I may be done with the bar scene'.
Now I'm no square, but I want to meet someone in a more quiet, formal and slower setting. Either a traditional restaurant, maybe a wine lounge, or whatever. I don't want anything long term right now, but I would like there to be a connection and something genuine.
I'm an engineer by day but my love is the arts. I paint, draw, dance and play guitar-with varying degrees of success. I'm taking an intensive art immersion course in oakland during the weekdays after work and hope to one day make and sell professional and beautiful art. Currently my studies are human anatomy, tone, and light.
I was for a brief time a dancer, and danced on a salsa troupe for six months. We performed at the Salsa Congress in Los Angeles and at Cafe Cocomo. I'm not great but I do have some decent body motion down. I am getting back into dancing after a 6 month hiatus, so if you're in the Salsa scene its possible we'll run into each other.
I have other hobbies and pursuits as well, some which may seem a bit 'out there' to the traditionalists and conservatives. Brownie points if you guess it. Clue: its an off shoot of my artistic pursuits.
