Aha! You've been caught doing it again! Reading another in a long line of profiles hoping to glean insight into some total stranger (who is quite possibly bonkers... of course you might like that sort of thing, in fact I find it often helps during those awkward first date moments). I'm sorry if I'm not being any help. Of course, that might be because I normally like to get the feel of a person from their conversation, our ability to banter back and forth. Isn't that part of the fun of getting to know someone?
Me? Does it really matter what I say about myself? You're going to form your own opinions, most of them probably from the photos I post. But I could help you a bit with a few of the basics.
I love my family and friends... I'm devoted to them and making sure they are happy. I'm the person you call when you need a ride to the airport at 3 AM, that you tell all your problems to, and who you trust to give level-headed, but optimistic, advice. I love my unusual (I'd like to think anyway) job as an architectural conservator. I love to swing dance... you don't have to love to dance, but you do have to be okay with me dancing with lots of strangers, because I'm probably not stopping. You will have just as easy a time convincing me to watch a movie from the couch as you will convincing me to go for a hike. I won't claim to be especially sporty, just that I'm willing to try anything. I'm an animal lover. I especially love dogs, the bigger the better. I'm fairly independent, quiet and a bit introverted, but always up for adventure and completely fascinated by people. I do make use of sarcasm, so if you can't tell that when I say, "Oh yeah, we should totally become drug dealers to pay off our student loans," it's a joke, then we may be in trouble. For those who care, I should warn you I am definitely a liberal, but not really a fan of ideologues who force issues... an even-handed discussion on the other hand? Yes please. Mm, one more thing. I like to laugh : ) People make me happy, so don't worry if I seem to be laughing for no reason at all, because often the simple little things in life just make me really ridiculously happy!
So... that's more then enough for now. Let's hear from you. The most I can ask from you is that you are kind to others, curious about the world, and willing to have a little adventure every now and again (now I use this term very loosely because an adventure, in my mind, could be anything from trying a new food to a new hobby, museum hopping to bar hopping, bowling to traveling the world... anything can be an adventure if you're doing it right). I don't know about you, but in the end, it really doesn't matter what you do, it's how you do it and who you do it with.
Oops, one last critical detail! I'm going to tell you this right up front... I am a Redskins fan. For life. The rest may come and go, but that you are unfortunately going to have to put up with. If you do, perhaps I will consider letting you come to a game sometime. Maybe. If you can behave yourself.
Good luck in your search, I hope you find what you're looking for!
