The one thing I am passionate about...
The search and sharing of knowledge. Conversing with others on any topic. The desire to ease others ills/woes. . . Hi all, getting a little sad that so many are not members and thus can't see my messages. I REALLY want this to work, but don't know what I can do about people not seeing me or my messages....
I typically spend my leisure time
I travel for work (intermittently) and pleasure, just love to see new sights.I enjoy talking/chatting with my friends and family.I like finding new twist in plots (books/audio/plays/video)I love finding old/new movies I have not seen.I love learning and sharing/helping others learn/understand new things.I enjoy my cat/animals (I grew up on a farm)
The most influential person in my life has been
There are two qualities I seek in people. Honesty and intelligence. This is not saying I shun the lack of knowledge, but that I enjoy people that want to learn. I think life is a daily search for more knowledge up to the day you die. As to honesty, I think it is best to be honest with yourself first and to others at all times. Yes sometimes little white lies make things smoother, but in many cases these little lies burn you and others in the end. I strive to be as honest as I can in all situations, and I enjoy this with people I know.
The first thing people notice about me
My openness to sharing and to listening. People tend to like to talk to me. I think it is because I really do listen, and don't just act like I do. When I am listening I try to understand at a human level, not at a outsiders level. I try to put myself in their position and seek to aid or just share the humor, depending on what we are talking about.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Considering I just graduated the last books I have read have been on Parallel Processing, Principles of Programming and Databases. For fun I have been reading online comics: Questionable Content, Bellen, The Order of the Stick, Ctrl + Alt + Delete. Update! :) many many books for work and now hooked on audio books Stephen King, Tom Clancy, Asimov, Heinlein, Larry Niven
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My parents, family and friends
- My love of knowledge
- My ability to find beauty in most things
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
sigh.... This is a question of wishing I could have a sign over my head all the time. I feel at times that if people could only know how you REALLY feel, or what your deep desires are. For me I wish people could know how much I really want someone in my life to share all of the pleasures/excitement/sites I see everyday. Without this, it leaves a large internal void that I hope someday to fill.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Dependable, Good listener, Intelligent
A little more about me
Hi all, a note about my time in Eharm... I am a paying member and all I have received for my time is scammers and non members playing games..... Makes you wonder why I pay to never get to date anyone... OK back to my original message....hmmmmm I am man that seems to think differently than many men. I don't let my sexual desires lead me like many. I desire a closeness to another that is more than just sex. I want a best friend. Yes all the other things with a long term relationship are great, but without the strong friendship above everything else, it is lost.
