I am seeking someone who is self aware and has a good relationship with themselves. Someone who is strong and secure enough in themselves to be open, vulnerable, and honest. I know it takes time to build that foundation of trust with someone but a lot of having that and finding the right person is being the right person with yourself first. I want someone who values healthy living and cares enough to take care of themselves. I want someone who is as curious and passionate about life as I am and loves to share new discoveries and insights. I hope to share adventures and experiences together with someone who truly knows how to live and enjoy life. Someone who appreciates the subtleties and comedy of life.
I have several gigs that keep my boat afloat. I work with kids running a great after school program, I have a pet sitting business I started a few years ago, I also DJ, produce music, and play some bass. I also have been a regularly published music writer.
Goals/aspirations:Paying off my student loans, putting out lots more original music, DJ'ing in Europe, Getting my music played on the BBC, writing a book, doing some more travel, keeping the funk alive, living a life determined by my own inner values and not those of our often shallow and overly materialistic society.
My musical tastes:
My tastes are very broad and deep, as a musician, DJ, former radio show host, and someone who got a BA studying regional music cultures I have a huge amount of musical awareness. I dig on classic soul/r&b, funk, rare groove, down tempo, 80's alternative, old school and progressive hip hop, reggae/dub/ska, afro-beat, various underground electronic dance musics, Latin, etc. If I was to sum up my tastes in music it would be more towards positive stuff that grooves and has a message. I don't care the genre, if it has heart and soul I can appreciate it.
My tastes in movies:
I have always been a big cinema fan and I worked at a national treasure of a video store when I lived in Seattle and really got an education. I love quirky comedies, documentaries, suspense/thrillers, dramas, foreign, sci-fi, indy, etc.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I think when meeting someone on line it is probably a good idea to keep the first meeting casual, maybe a cup of tea/coffee or something simple. Then if we click and we feel comfortable with each other we can make some more eventful plans for a proper first date. I think there could be lots of interesting ways to spend a first date getting to know each other. A trip to an art gallery or museum, dinner and a movie, seeing some music, a walk in the park or on the beach, a trip to a book store, something fun like a night out at a comedy club or playing putt putt could all be fun.
