I'm not the kind of guy who likes to talk himself up. I like to think I'm an intelligent, educated, considerate human being.
I work odd hours and, as such, have a hard time meeting people outside of my circle of colleagues. My downtime is devoted to my friends and my hobbies.
I'm good with my hands.
I like to cook, but rarely the same thing twice.
I'm renovating my house - slowly but surely.
I get along well with technology.
I read the news, and am a bit of an information junkie.
I dance like a white guy.
I have a cute dog.
I like to travel.
I count myself lucky to be born in and live in the developed world.
I would sell my second-born for a solid cup of coffee*** - but I'm not a coffee snob.
***I don't have a first-born, but I hope I would sell them for something better than a cup of coffee.... two cups, maybe?
I like real people. I'm not really into ladies who apply their make-up with a trowel, or spray themselves orange. A solid grasp of the English language is a plus.
I'd like to meet someone who inspires me to be a better person. I like who I am, but it takes someone special to make you want to better yourself.
