I am not afraid of your truth or mine though I am not beneath fibbing a bit if I don’t like the shoes you are wearing.
I am definitely of an artistic sentimentality; a romantic… but somewhat stoic as well. I like to demonstrate affection and I am very physically inclined. I wear my heart on my sleeve… not always a good thing. I don’t have much of a poker face, which is funny in a way because I can lie convincingly… also a conundrum because I am meticulously honest. True, I promise, and I am also loyal, chivalrous… I am a lover and a fighter.
I want to look good and feel good and I do take care of myself. Sometimes, I am a bit plain looking… ruggedly handsome, maybe, on good days… but I have been told recently that I am beautiful… I chose to believe it for just that moment anyway and maybe there is something that others can see that I don’t look for. I appreciate the compliment.
I have had an interesting career path through graphic design and production print process and then out of that and into rescue services as an EMT (staff) and fire fighter (volunteer) for a while and now I work as a consultant to local / national corporate teams in preparation / response training.
I enjoy arts and have a bit of talent in many artistic disciplines. I enjoy sports, though I can’t say that I am much of a team player… I have always been a bit of a lone wolf for whatever reason... not looking to change that. I have coined the term “misanthropologist” to describe this tendency; however, I can be quite gregarious in the right circles and some call me charming… More contradictions.
I enjoy reading but I have a hard time sitting still. I would like it if you read to me aloud as I will enjoy the sound of your voice as much more than I will enjoy being tended to. I would read to you as well, especially if you rest your head on me while I do it.
I enjoy adventure and challenge. I don’t find that I have anything left to prove really, but fun is as fun does and laughing, screaming, sometimes even crying are the best of it all…
My woman will be talented but modest… shiningly beautiful (outwardly radiating her inner spirit) and not overdone. She will be intelligent, but not excessive in demonstrating it and she will not have to be right unless there is something real at stake. She will accept me because of my flaws not in spite of them and I will endeavor to learn all of her imperfections and cherish them as they make her whole and human as I am… I will learn to live with her so that I will never have to be without.
