Once Upon A Time the World came to Me and said WTF Josh?
I reiterated, somewhat hastily, "All will be revealed in good time."
In retrospect, I never said the timing would be good!
Before you get too invested into this, and just so you know, I'm upfront and honest because if you're like me, I don't find it very entertaining or a good start to my day walking into a minefield blindfolded. That's not to say you've found yourself strapping on a ticking time-bomb of emotional distress either. I will not settle for less than what I feel I deserve. If I do not respond to you, don't take it personally. We're all adults here. I probably didn't feel like there was an initial spark of interest and I'm not in the business of leading people on or wasting one's time. There are enough profiles on here and I'm confident that you'll find a match more suitable. With that said, I read profiles first and foremost before I look at your pics (except your profile pic of course). If you can't write a single line of text that would intrigue your audience or you look "cookie cutter" than I don't care if you're a part time model. I'm here looking for depth and someone who projects a unique view of her world. I value my time, and yours, and tend to only surround myself with those who are challenging and like to be challenged. That's not to say every conversation is going to be a debate or philosophy lesson, but I do appreciate a person who can articulate.
I've traveled a lot and experienced things few will ever have the privilege of doing. I’m educated and do believe that I have the charm and intellect to hold an attention span in conversations. I've also been known to be the man of few words, conversely so. If it’s not interesting to me or if I feel I have nothing to gain or give by speaking than I usually just sit back and listen.
All in all, I'm pretty down to Earth and easy going. I'm complacent with my decisions in life and continue to strive and grow on a daily basis. I like to surround myself with people who provide me with a stress free environment, but understand that there are things that are out of my control. When confronted with difficult people and situations I have the unique talent of diffusing the aforementioned with tact and class.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I feel any first meeting from a service such as this should be a casual, meet and greet, non date date. If we connect then we can go from there.
I'm looking for someone I can spend time with and get to know. There are a lot of layers to the human psyche and I'm no stranger to the fact good things take time.
