This part's a little tricky, isn't it? I don't want to come off as sounding arrogant. I've done a lot to try and stay on top of my character defects. I took quite a bit of time to crawl into the wound as they say. What I found there was a scared little boy and it seems like as soon as I acknowledged that, then life took care of the rest. The obstacles that I had to overcome after that no longer seemed insurmountable (just big!). Now that I no longer feel the compulsion to hide behind a stoic exterior I can be emotionally engaged with my friends and family. And that's no cakewalk but I wouldn't have it any other way. All the laughter and all the tears and no more dress rehearsals - life is in session!
When I can get away, it's to the beach - bicycling, walking, diving in the ocean or just having dinner with my toes in the sand. Almost any beach will do and strangely enough, I enjoy it more when it's not sunny. When there's rough weather I make a point of getting to the coast to hear the waves crashing onto the rocks.
I have two incredible children that I adore and so I'd enjoy talking to anyone who has experience with that. I also enjoy my time away from them by trying to find a new restaurant or a type of food that I haven't tried. I love to cook but I find cooking for myself to be very lonely so I haven't done it in a while. I like seeing movies on a big screen but watch out; I'll probably have a lot to say about the production values, the directing and the acting. Sometimes just walking down the street after a movie and talking is about the most fun that I would ever want to have. I love going to museums and checking out architecture also.
I am too superstitious about romance to say that I am looking for this or that because someone's passion or spirit could change all of that. But someone to share a few laughs with - definitely.
