If I have to pick one it would be Star Wars. It was the first movie I ever saw as a kid and just holds a special place with me. I love Sci-fi and fantasy movies in general, I have seen very few I didn’t like. Honestly I love all kinds of movies, I just really like to watch movies. My Netflix and media server get a lot of use, lol! One of my recent favorite movies is Café, Waiting, Love. What a good movie and such a great combination of emotions.
I love to read but I don’t have a favorite book. I do have a few favorite authors and series that I have been reading. Some of my favorite well know authors are of course Stephen King, Dean Knootz and Anne Rice. My favorite series I have read is the Song of Fire and Ice, also known as the Game of Thrones series, I can’t wait for the next book and yes I do think the books are better than the show but it’s really good. I have been reading I have been reading a lot of urban fantasy/Sci-fi/Romance/ Steampunk/Dragon type series lately with strong female lead characters like the Dragonvein series by Brian Anderson and the Dragon Blood series by Lindsay Buroker, they have been so good and hard to put down.
I like all kinds of foods, it mostly depends on my mood but I am willing to try anything at least once but if I don’t like it I won’t try it again. My all-time favorite is cheese cake, I love cheese cake. All kinds of bread, nothing like fresh bread from the oven, lol! I grew up in the south so I definitely love southern food.
I like all kinds of music from classical like Chopin and Vivaldi to POP and Top-40. I am not a big fan of Hip-Hop or Rap but there is some that I like. I was recently introduced to K-pop, J-pop and C-pop and was very pleasantly surprised that I like it all a lot.
I am most comfortable in jeans, a t-shirt, sneakers and ball cap, especially my torn up holey jeans, lol! I can and do dress up when the right situation comes around. I do own a suit and some really nice clothes but not a lot. I kind of have expensive taste when comes to nice things. I guess for my physical appearance I would consider myself as average looking but I am on the slim side and I have been my entire life. I tend to keep my hair cut short, at least what I have left, lol! I like to stay clean shaven as well. I am not a fitness person but I’m not out of shape and I do like walking. I am also a Type I diabetic.
I think I have a pretty good sense of humor, if I say so myself and I like a good joke or comedy and like to laugh. I am not a comedian or class clown but I do like to make people laugh, especially the women I love and I have been told I can be quite witty at times. I do like to tease the person I am in a relationship with just a little. Nothing harsh or mean, just playful. I believe being playful and enjoying each other is very important. Seeing my woman’s smile always melts my heart. Life is too short to not have fun together and smile every day, don’t you think?
I have a wide variety of hobbies and interest such as hiking, traveling, walking, reading, watching movies and TV shows, playing video games, surfing the web, cooking, electronics, and DIY projects around the house.
I have traveled to Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Mexico, the Azores and all over the US from coast to coast. I would love to one day visit Paris France, Rome Italy, England, Ireland, Scotland, Hawaii, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea and China.
I believe I would be very adaptive. I love history and like to learn about other cultures. I also think this could be a good thing by always keeping the relationship interesting and new. I think you just need to have patience, understanding and a willingness learn together.
I have never had the opportunity but there is this town (Julian) in the mountains about an hour from where I currently live that rents these romantic cottages and I have always thought that would make a perfect romantic weekend getaway. You could spend an evening having a candle lite dinner, have desert sitting on the balcony stargazing and then snuggle in front of the fireplace. Then surprise your love with breakfast in bed the next morning. You could spend another evening sharing a Jacuzzi bath by candle light. Your days you could spend walking in the meadows or hiking in the forest to one of the hidden water falls. Touring and wine tasting at the local vineyards, visiting the town seeing the local artisan shops and galleries and eating at the quant little restaurants.
I am independent but reserved. I have an even temperament and I rarely get angry and it takes a lot to make me angry. I am sensitive about what others think of me with a fear about rejection and ridicule which causes me to feel shy and uncomfortable around others. I can be very guarded and I've always been a shy and quite, and not the most outgoing person but I am working really hard at changing. I am skeptical of the motives of others but I mostly assume that people are honest and fair, however I am wary and hold back from trusting people completely. I see no need for pretense or manipulation when dealing with others and therefore I can be candid and frank but also sincere. People say that I am relatively easy to relate to. I am optimistic, focusing on the good, I try to accept the things I cannot change and to work on only those things I can. I do not enjoy confrontation, but I will stand up for myself or push my point if I feel it is important. I am not afraid to fight for who or what I believe in. I am fiercely loyal and protective of those closest to me, those who are a priority in my life. I am mostly a compassionate person, however I prefer to make objective judgements when possible. I like the security of tradition, but sometimes have a desire to bend the rules and challenge conventional thinking. I am not an overly cautious person but I will think about alternatives and consequences and I do make up my mind fairly quickly. I have a strong sense of duty and obligation, a belief in justice and being self-made and I feel a moral obligation to do the right thing. I consider myself a calm and emotionally balanced person, who is optimistic with a generally cheerful disposition. I am far from perfect and have my faults but I am not afraid to change, to learn and to grow at becoming a better person, friend and lover.
I must be attracted to both her mind and body. Similar outlooks on life, genuine appreciation for each other, and we both strive to reciprocate feelings for each other. She is patient and understanding because I am not perfect, no one is. She will make me a priority in her life and have eyes only for me. She has faith in me, in us and believes there is nothing we can’t do or overcome together. She knows what she wants and the desire to go get it. Qualities I look for are honesty, intelligence, loyalty, and an ability to communicate. In short a best friend and lover to share the joys and sorrows of life together and a desire to travel. I’m looking for a companion, someone with her own life, with a strong personality, yet also able to make the compromises that life sometimes requires.
