Don't sweat the petty stuff.
Don't pet the sweaty stuff.
I moved to LA from Ireland in 1989, so I had an interesting and wonderfully different upbringing with happy memories and good times, although it wasn't without its trials and tribulations. I learned some valuable lessons over the years and grew into a smart, fun, down to earth real person, who is a thinker with a great sense of humor and wit, but I am also polite, humble and very grateful for all the opportunities I have been given.
I love to laugh and I do like a good pun. Life gets hard sometimes and its important to see the lighter, positive side of things, be able to have a chuckle, go with the flow and be flexible, otherwise its stress city! I'm a genuine, honest and compassionate friend and I like to see people happy and content in their lives.
Evolve. Ask questions. I like to know why things are the way they are and I prefer to be an open book, but I only allow those who have earned it, to read it.
Music is a very important part of my life. I like a variety of genres and I have always enjoyed singing, writing songs and poems. I was in a couple of bands in the past few years, and I also like to go and see a lot of the bands in the area. I've found the local reggae/rock shows to be great for finding good new music, dancing and meeting great friends
In my spare time, I like hanging out with friends, watching a documentary, walking my dog and laughing at my cat Dexter, as she leaps and runs all over the house, while chasing the little red dot that I have complete control over. I enjoy writing, reading, seeing movies, going to amusement parks, and museums and I like traveling to new places. I'm curious about many things and I'm interested to understand why we, as humans, do the things that we do and what we can do to be better in the future. I have my Bachelors degree in Psychology and currently I work with children who are on the Autism spectrum, as a Behavior Therapist. In the future, I am planning on become a special education teacher, specializing in Autism and behavior. It is very personally rewarding and although it is a lot of hard work, it is usually a lot of fun.
As far as my goals for dating, I am hoping to find someone honest, respectful and real, who wants to laugh, can hold his own in conversation, who isn't afraid to be silly or to explore his feelings, but also one who doesn't let those things rule him. I would like a bit of romance in my life, and I think its important to be reliable, but not necessarily predictable all the time. I am not opposed to a relationship, but I think for right now, I would just like to go on a great date and see where it goes from there.
Well ideally, the first date would be suggested by you, but if I were to describe it, it might be something like this:
Coffee, if you prefer keeping it light and short, and its always good to get out early if its torture.
We go somewhere interesting and fun, like Griffith Observatory or the Santa Monica pier, or just go out for dinner or bowling and spend some time talking and getting to know one another.
So, if you are still reading this, why not send me a message and write me a few lines. It doesn't have to be a novel, but it would be good to tell me a little about yourself or something you liked in my profile, and see how we do for conversation.
Ps: Apparently, I have to add this, I'm not into the whole hooking up/one night stand thing and I don't want to be anyone's "submissive female."
