The one thing I am passionate about...
I love a good story, no matter how it is told. If it is pure fiction, great. If it is about the recent events of a friend's life, even better. Sharing a funny story over a meal is one of the greatest simple pleasures I know.
I typically spend my leisure time
I bounce between quiet calm activities at home (e.g., reading, watching TV, gaming,) and going out to explore (e.g., road-trips, hiking, trying new restaurants, going to shows).
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for a woman with an easy smile, an infectious laugh, a sharp mind and a caring heart. Someone that makes my life better just by being a part of it.
The first thing people notice about me
I've gotten the gift of gab, as my grandfather said. I really love to talk to anyone about anything. I love sharing a good story or debating a topic. I love those times when I realize the conversation that started an hour ago about some random topic has been going on non-stop and now is at a completely unpredictable point. That's just fun.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read Raymond Chandler's The Simple Art of Murder. It is a collection of his short stories. Chandler is the master of noir crime novels. His hard boiled detective Phillip Marlowe defined a genre that was popular for decades and has influenced all sorts of media since. Chandler's writing style is misleadingly simplistic. He writes only sparse sentences but not a single word is ever wasted.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My brain: Being intelligent has gotten me where I am and will get me where I want to be.
- My luck: I've been very lucky in life so far. Things tend to go my way.
- My Family and closest friends: They make the good times great, and the bad times bearable.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish they knew how loyal I will be once I have chosen to make a person a part of my life. Whether it be helping them with problems, or just spending time together enjoying the company. I take a genuine interest in them and their lives. I listen to what they have to say and remember because they matter. I realize that any relationship, be it romantic, business, or friendship, takes work and I am willing to put in the effort, if they are worth it.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I have spent the last few years working on my career, which has caused me to move across the country five times in fiveyears. I have gotten to a pretty good position but have been neglecting my romantic life in the interim. Now that it looks like I'm getting settled I want to make romance more of a focus. These last few years have shown me that I can do pretty well on my own. I quite like my life but it could always be better with someone with whom to share it.
