I'm a strong, smart, funny, and independent person, and I'm completely comfortable with who I am. I'm very low maintenance and love small, creative gestures. I'm looking for someone who is similarly confident in who they are, and who has similar interests and goals in life. While it's good to agree a good bit of the time, I do like being challenged so I tend to gravitate towards people who have similar strength of opinion. Ultimately I'm not looking for someone to make me happy, since that's up to me. I am looking for someone to enhance that happiness, and to share all of the adventures that life has to offer with.
I am in no way looking for someone to take care of me, but I do want to find someone who I can lean on when the road gets bumpy, and who is willing to lean on me when things get rough for him. I am absolutely looking for someone to by my partner and best friend in life.
I have a pretty eclectic set of interests, and am resistant to labels (hence the profile name). I love learning about and discussing things like politics, economics, and social policy, but I also absorb all sorts of random facts and pop culture information, which is why I've cultivated a great track record at trivia. I was both an athlete (swimmer and soccer player) and a band geek in school (I played the baritone for 12 years). I follow both fashion and football. I've been known to do cross stitch while watching pro wrestling and crossword puzzles in bars. I take lessons for how to make jewelry and how to play the electric bass. I stay in shape by doing everything from step aerobics to combat/MMA-style training. Basically I think life is too short not to try anything that seems interesting and explore all the cool things life has to offer.
I'm an ENTJ for anyone who speaks Myers-Briggs.
I did improv comedy for 6 years, so I am pretty quick on my feet. A sense of humor is very important to me, because I think laughing together is one of the best things two people can do.
I love to travel, which I luckily get to do a decent amount for work. I'm equally happy flying somewhere or taking a road trip with friends or a special someone. I'm looking for someone who likes to visit new places, be they big cities for sightseeing or secluded spots for camping. No matter where I go, I like to go where the locals go to truly experience the soul of that place.
I am absolutely a consumer of all forms of entertainment, and I'm looking for someone who feels similarly passionate. I love all types of movies except for the super gory/slasher kind of horror flicks. I will take a good action movie over a rom-com any day of the week. Music is very important to me, with favorites that range from the super mainstream to the uber obscure. I used to be really immersed in the local music scene around Raleigh, and recently I have been working at getting back into it again. Ultimately I would love to play bass or sing in a band around here. The DVR may be the greatest invention of the past several years because it allows me to follow the shows I like on my own schedule. My preferences are mostly for hour-long dramas, although I have added some of the great new sitcoms of the past few years to my list. The list of favorites on my profile is woefully inadequate, so I am always happy for the opportunity to talk about movies, music, and TV at greater length.
