Hello, I'm Michael. I am moving to Seattle in September.
I'm looking for a long term relationship, and I know that right person is somewhere out there, the frustrating part is just looking at the right place at the right time. I believe strong, loyal relationships can be had if we both respect each other, rarely need to argue, and work hard to understand and put each other first whenever possible. Lying to your partner should be unthinkable. I try my hardest to live according to the Golden Rule and want my partner to strive for the same while being able to stand her own ground. I play chess and Magic when opponents are available (hardly ever), read a lot, hike, mountain bike. I'm interested in learning Krav Maga, fencing, and falconry when I get to the West. My biggest hobby is collecting handguns and target shooting. I am reliable and smart, and commonly called a sarcastic smartass. My horoscope says I'm lazy, but only in things I don't care about and I am introverted to a good degree.
What I would need most in a woman is someone also somewhat introverted that I can banter with, has matured above drama, and who will side with me, and I with you, against the world when it comes down to the wire. Who communicates instead of "hinting" and feels that setting aside time each day for intimacy is essential. Please be in decent shape, no kids, hard drugs, or smokers. Not essential but nonetheless excellent if you are also sarcastic, love Super Mario World and don't believe that aspartame is going to kill you. I also have a thing for wicked short hair (pixie cut.) Tell me about yourself! Ramble, prattle, banter, lament, anything that will keep us talking until we meet :)
First date: Swordfighting. After that, black market caviar. After that a movie with snuggling.
What I tend to do is this: A long walk somewhere for icebreaking. The ocean, an easy hiking trail, off a short pier. This should be enough time to see if the person is right. After that, we can do anything, typically dinner if we're still interested, as long as everything I ask you isn't "I don't know." That one was a long, long date.
