I am very easy going, yet spontaneous when the mood strikes, contemplative, yet easy to be around. I know a little bit about a lot of things, and always looking to learn more.
I have a fantastic sense of humor (I've been told), but I know when to dial it back and be serious. Life for me is a delicate balance between trying to "figure it all out" and finding the laughs in unlikely scenarios. It's fine for me to admit when I don't know something. If I haven't tried something by now, it's because I haven't been properly convinced to do so. If you're expecting me to tell you what you want to hear, then forget it. I'm not afraid to speak my mind (intelligently, of course), even if it risks losing some popularity. I'm real, and I put it out there.
Let's start with something where we can both explore each other a bit. No movie, no mini golf, no coffee at first. Maybe a local carnival or fair - anywhere you can eat food that's bad for you, point out those that are different from you (good or bad), and possibly get dizzy. It should be quiet enough where it's conducive for conversation, yet potential for distractions. This isn't a race - you don't have to give me your whole life story in the first five minutes. If things start to sound more like an interview, and less like a casual exchange of ideas and opinions, then maybe we're trying too hard.
My ideal mate would be someone that is responsible, confident, adventurous, and willing to take a chance every now and then. I'm looking for a woman that knows what she wants. Chasing a moving target is not my idea of an intriguing relationship. Vagueness and uncertainty are a turn-off. Figuring out what makes you tick - that's more like it. No dividing lines here. I'm not going to write you off if you hate the things I love. I will just enjoy them without you ;)
I'll leave it up to you to evaluate the rest because I find it somewhat restricting to summarize myself in 4000 characters or less.
I've got many more stories to write in this lifetime. If you want to be a part of that, give me a shot and let's see where it goes...
