The one thing I am passionate about...
I love to cook all sorts of foods, from Asian cuisine to German food and family recipies. Music has always played an important part in my life, I'm learning how to play the violin, guitar, and eventually the piano.
I typically spend my leisure time
Lately I've been looking for an apartment but in my spare time I like to read books, watch tv, play video games (I am one of the few guys that knows a girlfriend is more important than a game, however =p)
The most influential person in my life has been
I'd like to find someone with a mind open to new experiences, it seems like so many people are suffering from tunnel vision when it comes to life and it's many experiences. Life is best lived, as they say. That doesn't mean I'm going to make you go skydiving with me - but if you yawn at the mere mention of a nature reserve, arboretum or a museum, we may not get along as well.
The first thing people notice about me
Other than being just about the most stereotypical hippie around? I'm eccentric. I rant, I make obscure jokes, and tend to ramble. Some people will have no hope of understanding me as my train of thought careens on past, but the ones that are able to keep up with me are guaranteed constant laughs. I don't overpower a conversation though, I enjoy listening more than I do speaking.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read the Taken Trilogy, by Alan Dean Foster. The first of the books is about a commodity broker who goes camping in the woods only to be abducted by aliens intending to sell him as a pet, along with a now talking dog, a smartass squid, and a haiku-spouting death machine on legs. The second book then goes on to have the broker become a space-age chef, which is what sparked my interest in the culinary arts. The third tells the story of how he returned to Earth. It was a surprisingly well written series, the monsters the protagonist befriends felt more real than most human characters in books.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful to be alive, I've nearly died four times in seperate accidents. Only one was my fault and I didn't get anyone else hurt, for the record =p
- I've been miserable but turned my life around towards the vibrant green grass and expansive blue skies overhead.
- My calming presence. I can diffuse most situations before they get out of control, people place their trust in me, and most animals either love the ground I walk on or simply aknowledge my existence.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm patient when I'm dating someone, I like to take my time getting to know you instead of blundering into your pants as fast as I possibly can. Sex is great, but we both know there's more to it than the horizontal monster mash.
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Intelligent, Passionate, Respectful
A little more about me
I'm looking for a serious relationship, but I don't expect it. I believe in crossing bridges when you come to them, let's worry about today - but let's not completely blow off tomorrow. Oh, I have three tattoos, one on the inside of each wrist and a Cheshire Cat half-sleeve. I'm getting more done eventually, nothing too excessive though.
