I'm new in town, over a year separated, and far from home. I have an adult son in another city.
I like intellectual conversation, coffee, food, nature, movies, art, travel. I look for beauty in everything - all we can have are gifts in this life, even if they are painful ones sometimes, that's my philosophy. I'm outdoorsy in a camping/fishing way. I'm very handy and I like to help. I'm not really athletic, I'm too comfortably lazy to be athletic. I'm sort of casually classy I guess - at least that's what I'm going for.
I like postmodern works and absurd humor and witty people who question contrivances and themselves. I like to argue philosophically, but not in a mean way :)
Music is the best drug! I like anything from old school punk to Prokofiev. I love Tom Waits and I listen to a lot of downtempo whilst coding websites. Radiohead is great although boy, are they depressing. I've been listening to the "Inception" soundtrack over and over all day while I work. I play piano and sing, I write some songs and poetry. I was an art major in school, but I have good technical skills so I'm sort of a "techy-art" guy. I'm handy and fix stuff!
I'm hardworking, romantic, funny, absurd, creative, ethical, patient, spiritual and practical. I'm virtually dripping with adjectives. I'm a gifted communicator, and I try to listen well. A good lover too. I like almost everybody. I'm not really materialistic, but I think that a cherished relationship would help me to lay a foundation; a reason to build and share a life beyond my own meager, self-arguing needs. Boy do I argue with myself, until I can find a logical solution to issues. I appreciate having a partner who seeks solutions with me in a relationship. Relationships are partnerships, that's key.
I've lost much of my previous life's trapping and am starting anew in a new place now. It's been a hard year, but I maintain humor about it; what else can I do? I'm getting back on my feet. I'm not broke, but I'm awaiting settlement and trying to build business. I don't have drug problems or anything destructive like that. I'm a highly skilled professional with a good career and clients.
Anyway, now I'm single and yes, I'm a bit lonely - that's sincere. I'm a nice guy and I want to meet a nice girl.
Does that make sense? I hope so. I'm happy to chat, at the very least, if you'd like to get to know me a bit. Thanks for reading all that :)
