I have recently been described as "Quirky, but in a good way". The phrase still cracks me up so I figured it can't hurt to put it here.
I enjoy life, with all its ups and downs, and try to smile through all of it. However, that doesn't mean that I still don't understand every human nuance. Its a work in progress.
Put in a social spotlight, I will probably do and say something goofy to make the people around laugh but also know there is a time and place. Until then, I tend to quietly observe what is happening around me.
I work hard during the week to ensure my down time is peaceful and like to think that I have mastered the art of complete detachment when not at work.
At home I listen to music as background noise more than watch TV, but do have a few shows that can grab me. I don't watch too many movies as I have to be in the right mood but when I do it should be easy to sit though.
I prefer enjoying dinner, drinks and conversation at a restaurant or at home rather than bar hopping but not opposed to blowing off steam every now and then. I love live music and don't go as often as I would like. I prefer smaller, more intimate venues over huge stadiums.
When things get stressful or I need to center, I can be found on a yoga mat breathing deep and being. I am currently in a Yoga Teacher Training program and will be certified this September.
What am I looking for? Who knows? Perhaps a little of the above blended with an edge. I am attracted more to personality and a great attitude than looks but also would like the person I am dating to be aware of their own mortality and take care of themselves.
People have told me they did not know I was gay when they first met me and frankly, I take that as a compliment. I have seen too often the stereotype take over the person. Being gay is a very small part of who I am and would enjoy meeting someone who sees themselves as more than their sexuality as well.
I am also light years away from being perfect and am very aware of my flaws; physically, mentally and spiritually but am active in understanding how to fix some of them. Self-awareness is also something that is pretty important to me.
In the end, I'd like to think I'm just a nice guy that is in search of another nice guy to happily bounce around on this planet with.
