I am very unique. Yes, I know we all are, but I am cut from an unordinary cloth. I am extremely perceptive, passionately value my relationships with friends and family, and will go to the ends of the earth for the people I love. I have two very distinct sides - I'm very clear about what I do and don't like, yet I'm willing to be flexible as needed. I sometimes enjoy making decisions in a relationship, and at other times, prefer being led. I'm not sure that compromise is valuable in a relationship, as neither party ends up being pleased. I prefer to take turns, gently, carefully, with balance in mind, and don't relish bean counters. One of the credos I live by is that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.
I am passionate about being of service to people which is why I have dedicated myself professionally to my work. I am self-employed and can sometimes be a workaholic. I'd appreciate a partner who could convince me to stop working with an invitation to a movie or a power walk or an already-made restaurant reservation.
I'm extremely gregarious and friendly I strike up a conversations with people in the grocery line or someone sitting at the next table when I've gone out to eat. I'd hope that my partner would find it charming and even participate with me.
I love food, and even more, I love healthy food. Don't get me wrong - I don't eat salads 24/7. Give me a delicious pasta dish any time, but as a general rule, the food I prepare will be delicious AND healthy. Our culture doesn't make it easy to eat with good health in mind, so I think it's important, if it's a priority, to make it so, for yourself. I love cooking and baking, though also love going out to eat. I'm passionate about viewing food as not only delicious, but as a way to stay healthy. I want my significant other to also care about food, at least from a health standpoint. Extra points if he loves being in the kitchen to help cook or be a sous chef.
I also LOVE just hanging out and talking. I'd want to have a relationship with someone who also values and participates in good and frequent conversation, whether about a movie we just saw or sharing with me about something they're passionate about.
I love the ocean - not so much swimming in it, but I love being at the beach or just close to the ocean. And someday, I hope to live near it. I'd say the Pacific Ocean cause I love California, but the truth is I'd have a hard time leaving the east coast.
I love music - listening to it, making it, writing songs, going to concerts, all of it. AND I also love silence. I I love figuring things out like how to work the programmable thermostat and I'm also not averse to asking for help. I'd like to be a better whistler as I think that people who whistle like to have fun. I prefer being organized though sometimes go to bed with dishes in the sink. One of my most favorite places in the world is the public library. Any public library. I'm exceptionally good with people, especially kids.
