His 15 interests
in his own words...
Oddly, my philosophy on relationships is that you meet someone when you're not looking or least expect it, so trying the online thing seems counter-intuitive. I'm hoping for some honest sharing of hopes and desires, with the goal of a meaningful relationship...not just someone to whom I am sexually attracted. (Not that the physical isn't important...) My ideal? Someone who challenges me, is comfortable in his own skin, and who wants to leave the world better than we found it. This just in... After talking with a dear, dear friend about the whole "online profile" conundrum, we have these additions, in no particular order: -- Born, raised and schooled (undergrad) in Indiana, so my passions include Indiana University basketball, and the ideal movie double-feature would be "Breaking Away" and "Hoosiers." -- I'm told that I am a very giving person, and one who makes those around them feel good about themselves. -- I tend to be critical of myself, but not of others. My previous partner (12 years; we parted most amicably) taught me a lot about kindness. Life is too short to spend it with a chip on your shoulder or being critical of others. Still trying to navigate the remnants of having been raised Catholic, and the guilt that seems synonymous with that faith. -- I'm pretty malleable. (My college nickname was "Gumby," but for other reasons I'll be happy to share.) I can easily see myself getting drawn into a host of activities, depending on who I'm with: cooking, photography, any number of sports/physical activities. -- That said, I have strong opinions about some things. (The phrase "most importantly" should be stricken from the vernacular, for example. And I think we'd be better off if political party affiliations went away.) -- I love naps. Give me an hour on the sofa on a Sunday afternoon, and I'm one happy boy. If it's curled up with someone, even better. -- I have a handful of very dear friends for whom I would do anything.
