ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Hmmm...about myself...I would like to think that those who know me would say that I'm an all around nice guy; a decent fellow. I have my flaws for sure. But who doesn't? I'm a work in progress; I'm fine with that, and don't think it will ever change. Not offering perfection and not looking for it either. How boring would that be? I'm generally curious; a seeker - of knowledge, experience, insight, understanding, and adventures large and small. I'm young at heart, but I like to think that I have a good sense of when to "act my age" (whether I do so or not in any situation is open to interpretation). I enjoy a good laugh. My sense of humor tends to be a bit sarcastic and silly. I can sometimes be somewhat jaded and cynical, but most of the time I trend towards optimistic and hopeful. I'm a loyal friend, and strive to be compassionate and non-judgmental toward others.

I'm passionate about: music; film; pop culture (I find myself equally fascinated and repulsed at times); reading; writing; (but please, no arithmetic); laughter; family friends; cooking/baking; local food movements; sustainable living; progressive politics; engaging conversation; good food; good wine/beer; good coffee; good company; thunderstorms; nights of chill blue; front porch sittin' and much much more.

I've recently rediscovered the joy/pain of running and regular exercise after a long "sabbatical". Trying to get back into decent shape. Still got a ways to go to be where I would like to be, but it feels good to be moving in the right direction. Resigned to the fact that I'll never have wash-board abs, and I'm fine with that (I guess you should be too). Just want to be healthy and active.

I don't know that I have a certain type that I'm attracted to, but I can confidently say that I'm looking for someone who is: smart; passionate; affectionate; sexy (and no I cannot possibly define exactly what I mean by that); curious; creative; independent; young at heart; quirky; compassionate; funny; open; engaging; healthy; and adventurous (on a small or grand scale).

I'm definitely not looking for some sort of shallow hook-up, or to engage in "serial dating", but we don't necessarily have to dive into a serious relationship right away either. Whatever feels right. I'm open to the possibilities though I am looking for a serious relationship in the long run. I've never been married, nor do I have any kiids, but I am not fundamentally opposed to either. Seeking someone whose company I enjoy, who I am intrigued by and who is hopefully intrigued by me. Someone with whom I feel comfortable, yet slightly nervous, and perhaps vice-versa.

This probably reads as disjointed and rambling, but I'm not all that concerned. I do not have a laser-like focus as to what exactly I'm looking for. I guess I'll know it when I see it.

I think Tom Robbins said it best:

"I have always been a romantic; one of those who believes that a woman in pink circus tights holds all the secrets of the world."

I'm not sure exactly what "spiritual but not religious" means. But I suppose it's vague enough to fit. I trend towards agnostic, and avoid dogmatic. Enjoy the mystery. "There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
