- About me
I’m a shy, open-minded, polite, caring, heathen searching for that special guy to keep me entertained, nurture my sense of adventure, and yet give me lots of personal space when I need it. I am a textbook example of ISTP (Introversion, Sensing, Thinking, Perception) personality type.
The best way to connect with me is through activities and shared interests. I’m quite a challenge to date and I’ll never make the first move. Despite my being rather quiet, I seem to pair better with laid-back extroverts. I struggle with making small talk and expressing emotion. ”I don’t do chatty. I like quiet–quiet and mean. Those are my people.” (Nurse Jackie). I am a nice guy though, really. I love surprising friends with gifts, doing random acts of kindness, and making sacrifices. I have difficulty saying no. I have a dry sense of humor with an acerbic wit. Definitely not a team player. I’m late for everything and people jokingly tell me I’m on ”island time.”
I don’t have a multitude of friends, but the ones I have are very dear to me. They ”get” me and they’re my family. I tend to shy away from parties or large social events. If you take me to a party–I will cling to you (and time your bathroom breaks). I like to bend rules and sometimes push buttons. I got through school. I thrive on spontaneity and I’m never consistent (ask any of my exes).
I take pride in being a public employee even in Florida’s current political climate. My work schedule is rather flexible which is great for pursuing my hobbies and interests. This offsets my meager State salary–too embarrassing to mention here. Some of my favorite things include photography (film and digital), travel, live music (punk, indie), art walks, long hikes, collecting stuff, kayaking, birding, entymology, snorkeling, reading, politics, zip-lining, brewing kombucha, tinkering with my car, modifying something, researching a new diet, and a shell (or three) of kava. I need a clear head at all times. I’d rather make beer and wine than actually drink it. Same deal with food. I’m a vegetarian and more recently, a pescatarian. It’s cool if you’re not–I’ll even grill you a steak 🙂
