ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Count on me to say things nobody else can get away with saying. I am not offensive. Just a bit silly. So, ya gotta have thick skin and be very very mushy tender inside! Sounds like I looking for an elephant...or a whale. Maybe I should try interspecies dating :) Although conversation is really hard with whales. They talk too slow.

I have come to believe that there are seven basic areas of compatibility that are important to me. Not that my “one” will be identical to me but she and I will have common ground in all of these areas. In no order they are intelligence, creativity, romanticism, spirituality, sense of humor, life energy, and conflict resolution strategy. Having these in common is not necessary but it makes life much more fun and easy.

I know that the purpose of this essay is to try to express the essence of who I am and who I am looking for but to do it with the fewest number of words. But what is my essence? Who am I looking for? And does that person I search for actually exist? These questions can drive a person crazy can’t they?

I know that my appearance is decent. I’m not a supermodel. But I’m not ugly. I have some wrinkles but I have all of my own hair and don't color it. And I am a good catch by any objective measure. I’m fit, smart, sensitive, compassionate, creative, energetic, flexible, tolerant, passionate, financially secure, and reliable. On the downside I have a high change need, am easily bored, need lots of stimulation, and love to explore esoteric and odd topics. And conversely I love normal, dull, evenings at home watching reruns of Justified, Sherlock (the English series), Firefly, and channel surfing. My change need is met by my work.

I am an electrical engineer and work as a forensic investigator of those things that fail, malfunction, burn or blow up. One of my partners says I am an “artist”. What he means is that I am intuitive. I often know the answers without doing all of the steps. I don’t color inside the lines. Don’t take that to mean I am flakey, or unpredictable or unreliable. I like surprises and I spend time thinking up ways to surprise those around me. Just for fun. I am tough. Not tough like “I am going to beat you up” tough, but able to withstand hardship and stay positive. I am a manly man. You saw the pictures right? I’m big. I cook dinner. I shoot guns. I play with children. I can fix a truck or a watch, and can install a water heater. Then I’ll watch “You’ve got mail” followed by “Pulp Fiction”.

I read books. All kinds of books. If you want a reading list you can ask but…be warned.

A number of women asked for men who “know what they want” in their profiles. I have learned that no matter what you think you want love often invalidates all of those thoughts. It is unpredictable. That said there are a few core characteristics that remain true and that will remain essential for me. Childlike, smart, inquisitive, patient, sensuous, loving, attentive, adventurous, are words I use to describe “the One”. And romantic.

Love my job. Don't worry, its not my life. Just a hobby that pays really well. It gives me freedom to do lots of other stuff. Like travel. And ride my bike. (I race...Sometimes I feel like I should say "Hi, My name is Paul and am a bike racer. Its been 7 days since my last race and I am feeling pretty good. ")

What else. Other loves. How about that? Movies (all kinds except those really gross stupid slasher ones) books (again I am interested in everything so you should be also or I will drive you nuts) learning, whiskey, chocolate, my dogs (I have a relationship with lint rollers since I wear lots of black), handmade shoes and boots (call me Imelda) fountain pens ( love the feel of a good nib)

Enough already!
