I am leaving this site in September. I haven't had much luck on this site. Since I don't have much time left, I figured I'd try something different with my profile. I am going to try to be more honest than I need to be.
I am an only child from a divorced family. Because of this, I think I have trouble expressing my feelings towards others. I tend to internalize a lot and this keeps me from opening up to new people. It takes me a long time to be comfortable with others and to talk about myself.
When I do get comfortable, I can be kind of dry and pretty goofy. I love to laugh and I find almost everything funny. I love movies. Let me say that again - I love movies. I watch almost anything, but I tend to lean towards foreign, art and documentary films. I race through art galleries, bike to the supermarket and take pictures of my food. I also love food. I love describing it, eating it, and dreaming about it. I like licking the plate dry, and thinking about the next meal. I go to a lot of indie concerts and sing karaoke. I can rock Def Leppard like no one else. Yeah, I'm not modest.
I have a lot of ambition, but I can also be lazy. I think I am smart, but probably not so educated. I am a hard-worker at my job, but can be a couch-potato at home. I am always crossing things off my list to make time to read, yet when I sit down to read, I find more things to do then to read. When I do find a good book, I think there is nothing better in the world.
Friends, co-workers and most acquaintances have described me as an extremely nice, jovial, kind-hearted person with good morals. I am always there for my friends and a lot of times I put their needs before mine, maybe too much. I have never done drugs and don't drink much. I am surrounded by people who do, so it doesn't bother me. I love smart people, people who challenge ideas, people who are extremely creative, people who think design is not just a novelty, but essential to life. Because I think this way, I can be pretty critical and judgmental.
In relationships, I can be somewhat level-headed, respectful and very warm. However, I have been told that I can be selfish and at times I don't think of others when I make decisions. I write this, because I am now aware of this and want to work on it to be a better boyfriend and person.
I am a pretty independent person and am looking for someone just as independent. My idea of a great relationship are two friends who are comfortable with themselves and where they are in their lives and come together to share similar interests and inspire and encourage each other towards their dreams and goals in their future lives. I know that was hokey. I am that too. I can sometimes be unrealistically optimistic. When there is that one in a billion chance, I think that person has got to be someone, so why can't that one person be me? Even though, I have had very little success on Match, it's still not too late to meet someone pretty cool. I am going to top of the cheese, by saying - maybe that's you.
