Hmmm...what's my story?
Well, I am a curious person by nature and love trying new things. I believe one should never stop learning. I try to live by the credo that I'll try anything twice...once to see if I like it...and twice to be sure. So I've done a lot of random stuff in the past...some of it awesome...and some...well lets just say...there are stories :) Far too many to list here, But I do think one of the best parts about getting to know someone is learning about the other person's quirks and passions and learning things from each other that you may never have thought about before.
As far as hobbies go, I enjoy photography, cooking, travel, writing, finding weird and offbeat attractions and museums, trivia games and puzzles, and general silliness. I guess what it boils down to is I'm a laid back person, anti-drama (though sometimes you can't escape it) with a definite geeky side that usually manifests in random movie/TV quotes in conversation, a fondness for all things 80s and BBC related, a collection of gamer friends that I only really know from the Internet and a knowledge base of random information that is utterly useless. I enjoy people who don't take life too seriously and can laugh at themselves, at me, and the absurdity of life without being mean spirited.
I'd like to meet someone who is genuinely as interested in what makes me tick as I am in learning about them. I will admit to being terrible at this "dating game" because I prefer honest and forthright people who are who they are from the start, good bad and ugly. Confidence and comfort in your own skin are sexy. I tend to be more on the introverted side which actually make me prefer the more outgoing extroverts who are great at pulling me out of my bubble. And guys who are not afraid to smile and laugh...a definite must (that includes smiling in your pictures)
I suppose this is more of a jacket cover than the whole story, but you gotta start somewhere I guess. Let's chat and see where things go.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something simple and fun with no expectations. Coffee and talk is always a good place to start. Bonus points for nerdy activities and unconventional dates.
