Let's face it, there is not a single thing I can write here that will tell you whether or not you and I are a good match. We can message back and forth for weeks and still not know each other as well as we will after 5 minutes over coffee. So, if you don't think I'm a complete troll faced monster, message me. Meet me, and let's see where it goes from there.
I'm not looking for someone to make me happy or whole. I *AM* happy and whole. I'm looking for someone to share my life with. I'd like someone to lean on, someone to trust. Someone to be strong and brave WITH. Someone I can share my doubts and fears with. Someone to recognize and accept my many faults and foibles.
My absolute favorite activity is simply to spend time with people, new friends and old. I'm happy doing anything really, just as long as I'm being social, laughing and connecting with some good people. You'll typically find me playing tabletop games, watching movies, singing at karaoke bars, taking LONG rides on my motorcycle to nowhere in particular. I also enjoy performing and attending local theater, Renaissance festivals, going to the beach, trying new foods, and having long intellectual debates about random frivolities. I was born in NY, raised in Miami, and have been living in Orlando and working in entertainment since 2000. I put in some time at the theme parks awhile back, but have been making a comfortable living as a karaoke host for a few years now.
My ideal match is an intelligent woman with a quit wit who can challenge me on all levels. A true friend who not only adores me for who I am, but challenges me to be more than I think I can be. A woman who is as beautiful on the inside as she is in the mirror.
I keep my intro messages short because in my experience it doesn't really matter what I say. If you're interested, you're interested. I can spend an hour every day composing dozens of involved letters of introduction and still not get any replies. (I've done it! It's pretty frustrating. A short intro message saves us both some time. No matter how long or short my message is,you're reading my profile, and I've read yours. I messaged you because I liked what I saw and want to learn more. If you feel the same, message me back and we can take it from there. I'm not going to woo you if you don't show any interest. That just makes me look creepy.
Likewise, if you're not interested there's no need to ignore me. A simple "no thank you" will do. I'm a genuinely kind person and I won't get nasty if you turn me down.
Let's keep it simple, it's the the first time we are meeting. Let's meet for coffee or drinks and see if there are any sparks.
If you don't mind being nerdy we could meet at one of the many tabletop game nights I regularly attend. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, but you're curious... http://www.tested.com/art/454213-modern-board-game-bestiary/)
Take a chance on me. I won't disappoint you.
