Am I in the right place? This is Christian Mingle, isn't it? Seriously though, I saw an ad for THAT site on THIS site......REALLY?!!! No, I don't do schtick all the time. : )
No, not HandleWithCare as in dangerous...or fragile. As in: the tune by the Traveling Willburys, which has been rolling around in my head for a few days, as I write this. And I'm kinda relating to it lately. I own the CD it's on, among several hundred others--the vast majority of which I hadn't yet moved from my previous residence. So once, when I went to see my kids, I asked my 4 year old to come with me to the basement to grab some of my CD's (I was hoping to spot that particular one among them of course--no, sadly I don't have them alphabetized). She pulls one out--OUT OF HUNDREDS--and lo and behold, guess which CD she plucked. Can you believe that?! I couldn't. She was so enthralled by my reaction, that she talked about it for the next hour. So anyway, it's a really nice song. George grabbed some of his friends to jam, they come up with this tune that they really like, Dylan tells George that the song has to have a name, George shrugs, looks over at a packing box with those very words stamped on it and says that the song is called Handle With Care. Then they write the lyrics. Brilliant.
I'm very nice. And very sincere. I'm almost never mean-spirited and I don't like when other people are. But I'm not without a certain amount of "edge". I'm funny, as evidenced by or in spite of my little joke at the top here. Usually subtle, dry humor, occasionally just plain silly(see above again--I'm wearing it out, aren't I?). Often facetious, not often truly sarcastic(y'know, the mean spirited thing). Sometimes a bit introverted, extroverted among those I'm comfortable with. I really appreciate kindness, intelligence and sensitivity in others. I don't drink or use drugs--for more 22 years now.
I have a pretty wide range of interests: physical and social sciences, politics, sports, music, history (IS that a "wide range?" maybe only I think it is). I'm very good at that scrabble-like game that people play on their phones. Always happy to have a new opponent. If you play too, and wanna play, I'll be glad to, even if we may not be a match.
I'm honest to a fault. If I were not, then, for example: I might not disclose to you in my profile that I've been a professional poker player for more than a dozen years. I'm happy to explain to anyone who's curious or skeptical. I am, otherwise, not a "gambler" in any sense. I hope that anyone who finds the rest of my profile intriguing is willing to suspend disbelief if they are skeptical about my profession, at least until gathering more info.
I am very analytical, I always want to know, "why?" and "what?" For example, I really like to know what makes people "tick." This really only applies to people that are important to me. I'm not pushy about it, just observant.
