Fundamentally, I'm friendly, personable, and dependable. I believe that a true relationship is built on honest communication and general trust. I'm hoping the person I will spend my life with will hopefully be pretty self-reflective and responsible. In the meantime, I'm down for just hanging out - I've met many people on here that join me for a drink, snack or coffee here and there.
I moved out to southern Cali for the weather, and the progressive state of mind. I like to find people who are humble, hilarious, compassionate, strong, love their gig and hopefully have come to terms with the past.
I grew up in the Midwest (brutal winters!), and lived in Florida for six years (too humid!). Ventured out here in 2003 - I'm happy in environments that appreciate my good hard work, and where people are self-reflective and interdependent. My current job actually appeals to that desire - I work in a senior community. They may be old, but they're active and quick-witted, understanding and self-actualized.
I'm pretty even-tempered and don't get angry, pretty much ever. I do have some sass in me left over from 10 years in the restaurant. When comfortable I can crack little jokes left and right. I don't go for the glory or the gold - I like a cozy Sunday. However, I don't mind working two jobs doing what makes me feel great inside and out. My artistic side comes out in writing and acting projects (usually I just do both at work).
It's easy for me to get involved in my partner's activities, whether I join him on an excursion to the Redwoods, or simply offer my insight to his stock choice. Fluid communication is probably the most important factor in building a relationship, at least for me, so hopefully you feel comfortable opening up on occasion and sharing in life's biggest and most beautiful mysteries.
At this time, I've been meeting acquaintances and friends on here, and perhaps one day I'll be ready to make a committed relationship. Not sure if I'm there yet, but I'm definitely getting close!
