Hello digital world, we meet again. Time after time.
Me- Red hair (my most interesting feature apparently), green eyes, average shape. I have a car, I put gas in it and everything, and see people drive on TV, so how hard can it be? I play chess and Magic, read a lot, hike, mountain bike, and I collect handguns and target shoot. I am reliable and smart, and commonly a smartass and sarcastic. I'm lazy, but only in things I don't care about. You might say I'm introverted, to some degree at least and sadly my best qualities are most apparent after you know me. Things like integrity, loyalty, rationality and even temperament. I am backpacking and trainhopping around the country next summer and after that I will be moving permanently to Seattle in September 2014. Because of this, I am staying with my family and spend time with them before I go. This is a set plan and I know its a big hindrance to relationship seeking, so I guess I'd need a girl who would be on the adventurous side and willing to come with me when it's time, if things are going really well.
You- For the poetic: I want someone to spend endless summer nights walking together under burning moonlight, shuffling through leaves in a crisp autumn dusk gathering pumpkins for halloween, enjoying the sweet breeze of pre-thunderstorm winds in a grassy field. For the non-poetic: I need a girl who is bright, kind, rational, and learns well from mistakes. Someone I can banter with, avoids drama, and who will side with me, and I with you, against the world if it comes down to the wire. You must believe in an equal relationship, absolute honesty, and respect for each other. Talking when we're upset (not "hinting") and how we can solve it, protecting each other from being hurt, and setting aside time each day for intimacy I believe is essential. You should be in decent shape, no kids, hard drugs/cigs, or piercings beyond ears or nose, maybe eyebrow. I'm sorry if you're a great person otherwise, but I just can't handle piercings :(
Not essential but nonetheless excellent if you are also a smartass, love Super Mario World and don't believe that aspartame is going to kill you. 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.
