In search of an awesome collaborative partner in this project that is life. I want to create a supportive, loving culture with a smart, ambitious man who also wants to entertain friends, raise children, have a fulfilling career, travel the globe, and decorate our persons and our home with beauty and inspiration.
I'm confident and happy with who I am, and know what I want in life. I'd love to find someone who also knows what they want -- because then when we find what we want in each other ... well, we'll know, right?
GOING OUT & STAYING IN
On a given night I'm equally open to going out or staying in, especially if I can stay in with you :). When I stay in, I like to curl up and watch movies, work on art or house projects, cook a good meal, garden. When I go out, I like to go to unfancy or fancy restaurants, depending on my mood and finances, go see a movie with friends, go to one of the endless amounts of a house parties I'm invited to, go bowling, go swing dancing, eighties dancing, dance parties with techno/trance/whatever electronic music they've got. Occasionally also I enjoy Irish bands. Oh! And my favorite food is Mexican food. I could eat Mexican food every day and not notice it. I eat everything but sushi and some fish.
I'm pretty solidly geeky in my preference when it comes to books and movies. I'm forever drawn to the otherworldly, and the high-tech: I'm excited by Star Trek, William Gibson, as well as Game of Thrones, Hunger Games, and even some of this silly new vampire/werewolf craze. As a lit major I appreciate and recognize great writing, and great stories. But day to day I'm more likely to be reading or watching pulp mysteries than Austen or Tennyson.
One of favorite forms of personal expression is dressing myself. I'd say dressing up, but I mean every day. Composing an outfit in the morning is a soothing form of collage art for me, and helps me enjoy my day better. Dressing up for a theme party is even more fun -- and I can make any party a theme party in my head.
As you might have guessed, I like throwing theme parties too :). Well, I love socializing in general and like making many events into get-togethers, whether it's going to a basketball game, my company party, a special movie (you know, like The Hobbit).
