I am a 42-year-old professional who is not good at breaking the ice. (but by no means a social leper) I have done the bar/club thing, looked around and thought, "what the heck am I doing here" (Well, not exactly "heck") I am easy going (who here isn't? I do love to roll with the punches that the unexpected can deliver), goal oriented, self reflective, and willing and eager to try new things. I have never owned or played an Xbox. I love to debate politics, discuss philosophies, say the most criminally sarcastic things with a completely straight face, and make fun of Pop culture. I value honesty and sincerity, and I do not fear it. I have never met anybody who does not love to laugh.
I like to laugh at myself through self-deprecating humor (hence, the fake beef-cake pictures), have an opinion, express it, listen to yours, put together well thought out plans and then ignore them, run, drive around corners too fast, listen to music, go to movies, do cultural things (museums, galleries, festivals, etc) watch The Office, The Daily Show, Packer games, auto races, and people, and write run-on sentences. Every time I proofread this thing I go into oxygen debt.
That said, I like cute, spunky, open-minded and athletic. You should be a movie buff (I???ll do the occasional chic-flick if you do the occasional shoot-em-up). You are passionate about something. You should have your own opinion on the Bears, politics, and/or the Palin family being the sign of the downfall of Western Civilization. And, you love to kiss.
I am not one for long email engagements. Chemistry over email does not equate to chemistry in person. And, I THINK in-person chemistry is the goal, right?
Hey, at least I didn't say that I "work hard and play hard".
