I’m a karmic bomb to most people I meet. Lately, I've rediscovered one of my religions: Exercise, (the other religions being music and community). Tomorrow is my birthday and I've never looked or felt better. My brain also is peaking, praise, uh, exercise, music and community (actually thank 11 years of college education, self-learning, and accumulated wisdom). I'm also a comedy writer and may hit the stage as an amateur stand-up comic.
I believe: I have a dry sense of humor, am intelligent, loyal and honest. I tend to mock everything, including myself. I like all people, but do tend to most enjoy speaking with people that have a college-level awareness of history and science, or who love art. My idea of an awesome night is drinking a little, laughing and possibly some music. I also smell good naturally… Not a pungent male. This is important.
I'm told: I'm funny, thoughtful, sincere, have a positive energy, and a big heart. I’m also very passionate about my interests and tend to – I’m told – say random things that veer from the hilarious, to the wise, to the weird. I'm also not perfect. For example, I'm stubborn and idealistic. I tend to do things for love, not money, figuring big money will come, but only for the right reasons. Things like that.
Other than that, I can say I'm a very intellectual, educated man, who has an open mind about everything and everyone. The worst part of people is their lack of empathy and I strive to fight that in myself and others without being sanctimonious about it.
What am I looking for? I've learned to be open-minded about that because the real deal-breakers are often those things each partner does around the house, or certain dispositions. Such subtle things seem to truly spell death to a relationship. It's not necessarily attractiveness, then, or what kind of entertainment one favors -- things like that -- that determine the success of a relationship. That said, I really just want someone who treats people well, takes care of herself, and fits some definition of intelligent.
I can't say I'm looking for anything else in particular. Although I'm incredibly aware about society, politics, economics, music and media (an amazing b.s.-meter), I can be naive about people. I'm getting much better, but I remain surprised how "INSIDE-the-box," touchy, insecure and judgmental people can be, among other things. My point: If you want a cookie-cutter guy who has little interesting to say, and little sense of awareness other than saying the allegedly right thing, performing his empty job, and satifsfying his ill-informed libido, then look somewhere else. I'm not the guy for you. I'm more of a practical poet/philosopher who considers his real job that of a writer.
So,, I'm utterly human, a mixed bag. I'm a good guy -- but not not not annoyingly so. There also are no surprises over here, except good ones. And nothing weird, at least in a bad way.
* If you deign to construe my slew of unfinished – mostly side – projects as an inability to complete things or for a situation better suited for a 25-year-old, just talk to somebody else and do not waste my time. Not only is this a largely irrelevant notion based on an assumptive, skewed, misplaced notion of what’s important in a partner, but you do not know my entire story. I would recommend you find a good man who has found meaning in life, but that is asking too much for many.
* If I do not ask about you enough in the early stages, please take no offense. I read your profile for one thing. Besides, I tend to avoid the interview portion of early dating and try to just have fun. That is what a personal life is for: fun and empathy and love. We can cover everything anytime, and if you have something to say, just say it. No games. Obviously, I assume you have a job, parents – perhaps even one of each. An intelligent person should be able to read between the lines anyway. I know I can.
