Hi there! Thanks for stopping by for a little peek. That’s funny - remind me later and I'll tell you why.
True story: I just finished cleaning up after a tasty meal. Poured a glass (my second) of wine, Pandora tuned to my favorite station, the laptop firing up, my water glass handy… which, when struck by my hand, spills with uncanny accuracy toward any/all electronics lying nearby. Happily, I managed to avert disaster. I’ve cleaned up the spill and, laughing at my swift move, now sit down to write this from a whole new perspective.
Perhaps a sign? Good sign, bad sign? It certainly could have been worse…could have been the pinot spilling.
I’ve been single for two years now, but have had two relationships that lasted as long or longer than most marriages. I’m perfectly comfortable being on my own and have spent plenty of time alone between relationships in the past. But I find myself missing the companionship, friendship, contact, little inside jokes, and experiences shared with the person you love and who loves you back. Experiencing even the most mundane things for the first time together is such a great feeling.
You’ll find that while I can talk to anyone from landscapers to lawyers about just about anything, I may not always be the one to initiate the conversation. My friends would likely tell you I know a little bit about a lot of things, a lot of things about a few things, everything about nothing, and nothing about some. I enjoy witty banter and biting sarcasm but never with an intent to harm. I prefer lively dinner party/conversation over a loud party or club, although I love seeing live music.
If you’re a vegan or vegetarian I suppose it’s important to note that I’m an omnivore and do fish and hunt on occasion. I love all animals. Some are loved for the companionship, friendship and unconditional love they bring into our lives while others are loved well seasoned, mid-rare with sides of sauteed mushrooms, rice pilaf and a nice glass of pinot noir. Seriously though, I respect and support others’ dietary choices (cannibalism and the like notwithstanding) and just ask for reciprocation.
I stay physically active during the day at work and kayak around the island in the evenings. I gave up the gym in favor of being outside and have never so much looked forward to my workouts as I do now. Running is really not my thing (usually only when being chased,) but I’ll hike all day long. I’m not sporting a six-pack, but I am fit and … bonus, I have a full head of hair!
Some random thoughts:
Semi-colons - underused, underappreciated. Bent fork tines suck; it doesn’t feel right in the mouth. Words are fun and they matter. I’ve witnessed the medicinal powers of dark chocolate.
I'm looking for an intelligent, confident, independent, attractive, funny, kind, and caring woman. I’m not perfect and haven’t met a person yet who is, but I do think there is a woman out there perfect for me. Beyond that? I don't really have a set picture in my head of what you look like.
I've been searching for the daughter of the Devil himself
I've been searching for an Angel in white
I've been waiting for a woman who's a little of both
And I can feel her but she's nowhere in sight - The Eagles.
Definitely leaning more toward angel than devil. I’m no angel, but I am a good guy and need a good girl with whom to share my life… just not toooo good ;) I want the all-American girl-next-door who is nice to others and who doesn’t sweat the little stuff. She likes to cuddle - and not just on rainy days (too few here in CA to be that limiting.) Oh, and while I’m working up my wishlist, I’m looking for a woman who will forgive my inability to tell a joke without screwing it up. It’s hereditary and we blame my mother.
