About me: I'm me. I'm pretty sure I always have been! I find it hard to qualify myself as I think circumstances can dictate a lot. However there are a few things I think/feel that remain pretty constant: First and foremost, I think relationships are based on trust; I like people who're willing to express their ideas in spite of opposition; I'm a huge fan of effective communication and a good attitude! I can make some pretty darned good teriyaki chicken wings; I occasionally have a biting sarcasm; I'm a HUGE sucker for wine and cheese! I think that company can make or break an experience, regardless of the environment or the task.
I spend a lot of time thinking about life and it's various components--it's a pretty entertaining pass-time. Ultimately, I like to try to enjoy whatever scenario I find myself in.
I have a great relationship with my family! They're awesome people--they have my respect, my admiration and my trust.
There are a few friends of mine who enjoy making fun of the idea that I have theories... no, not conspiracy theories.... in fact, more like the opposite; they might be classified as Pseudo Seinfeldian (if that were actually a classification) which, yes, implies that they're actually theories about nothing. I won't argue with that.
I think that having to "sell" yourself on a match.com profile creates a practical paradox between perception and reality... I have yet to figure out who gets to make the final call; it also seems to challenge our literary abilities, in substance and craftiness. Some of the best people I know are terrible writers... so how do we accurately "speak" for ourselves? I learn best by doing. I'm a slow reader. I'm very close to my family. I have an immense amount of respect for medical professionals, educators, people working with kids, and artists who can make it work! Either way, I think it's endearing when someone loves what they do, no matter what it is... or what it isn't. I've been told I think too much and I talk a lot. I've also been accused of "clam shelling" when I get uncomfortable. I don't like when I disappoint people--this often works both to my advantage and disadvantage.
What am I looking for? Well, I lost a check the other day for just over $1M, if you find it, please let me know. Aside from that? ... nothing specific. It's always nice to meet new people. I find honesty attractive! Ideally we'll serendipitously run into one another on the street, only to later find out that our match.com profiles work well together. I didn't hand-pick my puppy ahead of time, I just went to the rescue and fell in love... he's been the best dog I could ask for; I don't want to bullet-point people, I just want to see what works!
I'm still kind of figuring my way around this site... I feel like I keep discovering new things, then somehow can't find my way back (breadcrumbs, anyone?) And no, this is not my first computer--it's just my learning curve.
