I am a down to earth guy who loves real conversation on topics of substance as much as I hate small talk or trivial conversations. My primary hobby is the pursuit of knowledge and understanding followed closely by becoming as self sufficient as I can.
I am very in to self sufficiency and energy independence. Hobbies include building an electric car, running cars on wood, programming, hiking.
I have run my own business profitably in the past and look to start a new business in the future. I would love someone who enjoyed running a business with me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
If the weather is nice, then nothing is better than a good hike and sitting on a rock looking at the view and figuring out life.
If it is cold or raining, I would take you out for a good meal, possibly wine and desert, and then retire to one of our homes, share our favorite books, put on a good movie, cuddle, chat. I consider it successful if there was lots of engaging conversation and we both come out learning something new.
