Oh I see, a relationship manifesto, huh? Hmm.. Okay.. Fast, Cheap, Good: Choose any two.
Idiosyncratic. Iconoclastic. Independent. Indebted to good books, good food, good libation, good friends. Iridescent when it rains. Intense. Imperfect. Believer in love and soul mates. All senses alive with the crashing wave.
Food? Artichokes. Olives. Brie. Brioche. Boursin. Avocados. Balsamic vinegar. Berry pie. Eggs. Oysters. Jalapeños. Pistachios. Brussels sprouts. Limes. Hot mustard. Cashews. Almonds. Cod.
I'm not going to say bacon because if I do I'll be overwhelmed.
Communication and trust go together like-- something.. I can't remember. And anyway, it's better to be challenged than to be lulled. Fat times, lean times, I always seem to have a good time.
I'm really good at: The flip turn. Driving. Singing off key. Cooking. Eating. Drinking scotch. Laughing. Forgetting to shop for clothes. Finding something cool to wear anyway. Writing poetry. Remembering stupid stuff.
First thing people usually notice about me: My corrugator muscle.
Favorites in books, movies, plays, music, food: John Updike, Alfred Hitchcock, Arthur Miller, Dave Brubeck, Ming Tsai.
I spend a lot of time thinking about: The doppler effect. The great-circle route. Parallel construction. The nature of time. Traffic. Syzygy. What to have for dinner. Quantum entanglement. The lie in my profile. The best way to get from here to there. How to write a poem. What it all means, if anything, and if not, then how it feels right now.
The six things I could never do without: (literal) air, food, water, shelter, sleep, sex... (corollary) fresh breath, good wine, love, dream, God...
Interesting or good? Oh, good- I'll take good too. But isn't interesting always good, even when it's bad?
Close your eyes and press escape three times.
...oh, and my friends say I'm nice and bla bla bla. I'm looking for this and that and bla bla bla bla. I like puppies and long walks on the beach and bla bla bla divorced, married 15 yrs, split amicably (both proud of that), split in '07, no kids (I wanted them then but she didn't, long story and I've moved on and more on that if we talk), college then medical military tour then finance career then layoff (sub-prime fiasco sound familiar?)... stale marriage, divorce, sell a home buy a home go back to school, nurse, dating, you (you?)
Last but not least: We wont be afraid to miss each other. We'll know not perfect, will treat each other as of we were. Our only real fear left will be losing each other. Someone we love, and love to wake up in the morning to.
Someday wrinkles and gray hair, but still fall in love with you all over again.
So please drive me crazy in that good way (it's within walking distance).
You should message me if: You can whistle.
always dreamed of becoming
the kind of woman the man I've always dreamed of becoming
has always dreamed of meeting."
