I am a coffee snob who loves really getting to know people. I love deep conversations and I love to laugh- I really like making others laugh and I love learning new things. I prefer quality over quantity, and I am a pretty simple guy. What you see is what you get. I'm a pretty open book and I'd love to find people who are the same.I like outside, casually- I like to walk, hike and fish a little.I cook and like to make things up as I go. I'm a single dad and do have responsibilities- you can learn more about me if you like, just ask!
I am pretty liberal in my politics for the most part and my christian faith- unchurched Jesus follower- is what has taken me there. I care a lot about people and the way our society is structured. I grew up in South Central Los Angeles, so my upbringing was very different from what most people in the midwest are used to.
I want someone who is kind to people just because they are people, especially people who are looking for a hand up. I will never be rich probably and I am okay with that.
I don't like tons of small talk- so if I engage with you it's because I really want to know you! I have a good circle of friends and acquaintances. My friends tend to skew younger- and I sometimes find that people around my age have stopped growing and sometimes seem content just to take care of themselves and become insulated. I want to still make an impact.
This may be a deal breaker too, but at the Dodge County democratic caucus, I spoke for Bernie Sanders. If you think I might be interesting or you have a similar way of looking at life, then message me and lets get to know each other!
And... my musical tastes are all over the map- but I don't really like country or metal. Right now my playlist will include Marvin Gaye, Interpol. Andra Day, Johnny Cash, George Harrison, Mexican Institute of Sound- I'm a little eclectic
