Looking for real. Someone who sees that life has many sides and comes in many flavors and doesn't have preconceived values based on outdated thinking or customs that are no longer relevant in today's world. I'm a very progressively modern individual that will not compromise my position and views on life just to get a date. Conservatives...just don't apply you are wasting your time. So who the hell am I? I am who ever I want to be, whenever I want to be, however I want to be. That is who I am. I don't fit any possible label or categorization that will make you feel like you think you know me or feel comfortable because you think you can sum me up. I can, have, and always will be able to surprise you, but I don't follow any program you know. I'm looking for someone who truly knows that the mind is the ultimate adventure compared to how some people never grow or change or challenge themselves, yet maybe they travel all over the world physically. That doesn't mean I don't like to travel...you couldn't be more wrong. But I can guarantee my reasons for travel are entirely unique and different than most people. I'm the kind who knows how to stop and smell the roses, in the million and one ways that occurs daily. I'm looking for someone with similar capacity to wonder and appreciate big and small. I don't care much for status symbolism, but can enjoy being caught up in stupid crap anyway...just for the fun of it. Life is to be lived...on your terms. Life is a book you are supposed to write...so never let anyone take your pen and write for you. Right now on Match...I really would just appreciate the company, starting with a friend. I'm not going to pretend we are an instant hit just because you had a long conversation or went out to dinner and had a good time. Real substance lies in the space between the notes, if you catch my meaning. If you don't...you have no chance. If you do...that's a start worth looking into. I am damned if I do and damned if I don't so...just do it, taste life, and take a chance. You have millions of chances to take, but only one life to live.
