Just in case you are wondering my picture is meant to be funny. I was hanging out with a friend of mine the other day, and she was looking through her mail from match.com and all the guys had these serious semi-mean looks on their faces so I thought that maybe that's why I hadn't had any success with a personal website. I like to joke. I'm actually a very nice person. I can't help but do the right thing in most situations, even at work I can't slack off properly. I like it when I can be nice to people, do the job right and have a generally good day, but a good deed rarely goes unpunished. I have lived here, TX, and Italy, and visited Chile, Germany, and France. I'm currently in college studying Computer Information Systems but I write in my spare time, or fix people's computers. I actually like to talk, about anything and everything. Ever since I've moved here from Italy I haven't really felt like I fit in with my friends here so I decided to come here.
I really like being creative, all forms of art, but I'm not really an artsy kind of person. I played guitar for 10 years, still do a little now. I've been writing poetry for 15 years, and have a lot of people wanting me to get published. I would really like to draw more. I can make pottery. I really like messing around and seeing what kinds of things turn out if I can find the time. It's cathartic. I like technical things as well, but I'm not quite a geek. I like to cook and am told I do it very well.
After my last two relationships I'm really taking it easy on the dating thing. I want something long term if anything. I have absolutely no desire to get into something that just seems so so. I've been through a lot in my life, and I just don't want to waste any more of it. I think everyone deserves someone who is really passionate about them. I think in long term relationships people fall in and out of love, but there is something more there that makes them last. There is a deeper connection, a shared direction in life, differences that compliment each other, all of that. To me communication is important, and it takes me a while to get to know someone, so I'm not going to jump off on the wrong foot.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Hmmm, first dates. I'm not really that into going out to bars anymore. I can't hear very well so talking is really hard. Booze really does help, but not too much booze. It depends on the person really. If you know each other fairly well beforehand than dinner and a movie is ok. Pool, bowling, cooking dinner, or restaurant. A movie is ok if I know you fairly well, but otherwise it doesn't give you a whole lot of time to talk. It still works though. As far as online dating goes I would take the time to get to know you fairly well before actually meeting. A long phone call might actually be a good informal first date :)
