Orson, if ya' want some seeds I can mail ya' some. I collect seeds when I can. Long ago a Mormon lady gave me LOTS of plants for free, so I like to keep the pass-along thing up and running.
okay, here comes the most delayed response to a thread EVER! Lol! By the way... i hope you post somethng like this for the ladie's likes as well, that would be very interesting to read. Anyway... the list i know i will come to regret posting. Lol!
Likes: freethinking women (no exceptions), star wars, bands (earth wind and fire, depeche mode, zeppelin, morrisey, alice in chains, and sinatra, amongst many others), the beach, relaxing (i'm southern, gimme a break!) movies (i LOVE movies... going to movies, netflix, redbox, etc), goin to baseball games, museums, wine tastings, festivals, concerts, and really just hangin with friends. i also love NFL football. i watch nerdy stuff on tv mainly.. msnbc, cnn, discovery, nova, pbs, history channel, documentaries, etc. i do like fiction tv every now and then like Criminal Minds, Daily Show, Colbert Report, First 48, and probably a couple others i don't feel like tryin to remember right now. in terms of women i like or am into. I like all races, credes, ethnicities, etc. i really don't discriminate based on origins. i do discriminate based on decision making skills, so i shall transition into dislikes. i yeah... i tend to like petite and thin or petite and curvy, since i'm barely 6" tall and thin (not skinny, i prefer to be called "thin" thank you very much). i also like women who aren't afraid to be opinionated and who swear/curse. i went to boarding school when i was young, so i know how to do shit around the house, so i'm not into a "2nd mom" lookin to take care of a guy or pretend like their boyfriend is the kid they haven't had yet. fuck that shit. i also HIGHLY value honesty and trust in women (and in all people i deal with for that matter).
dislikes: fundamentalists, followers, people who have issues with people who are different then them. if you have railed on the internet about blacks, whites, mexicans, people on welfare, or support most republicans (even ron paul) i probably will just assume you are selfish, greedy, and a biggot most likely. sorry... i know, i know.. the truth hurts, but someone's gotta say it. also, not into women who are starved for attention. i like sexy, and mini skirts, and cleavage, and whatever floats your boat, but if you're one of those women that it ruins your day if every guy in the place is trippin over themselves to try to fuck you... then you don't need me, you need a therapist. in a social setting i would most likely find a way to appear interested only in order to drop a suttle insult that completely ruined your fucking night. just for being so shallow and self absorbed. (yeah... i roll like that) and i'd laugh about it later too.
so in summary, i'd say i'm a fairly normal guy, stereotypical in the fact that i like sports, boobs, and listening to music way too loud. i'm nerdy too because i love star wars, reading nonfiction, watching the news, following politics, and discussing current events. not really the knight in shining armor your mom told you would come someday... not super spontaneous, not much of a romantic either. i'm very empathetic and caring though, and i don't believe in lieing or cheating. i've been told i'm "reserved" in social settings. far from shy, but definately not the center of attention type either. somewhere in the middle. of my group of friends i guess i would say i'm the funny one that plans all the get togethers and shit. yeah... like a character on friends or something. just not that lame (hopefully). Lol!
Nah, I've seen threads lay dormant for almost a year, only to explode back to life when one person makes a new post, and then half a dozen others jump in, in response to that first one. Only been three months, with this one.
Oh, and I don't know that I would classify The Colbert Report and The Daily Show as fiction TV ... just full of things you wish were fiction.
Thank you good sir :)
Likes and dislikes? You mean, in general? Like anchovies on pizza? Or are you thinking of preferences, as regarding women?
All right, assuming the latter - I like smart women. The smarter the better, utterly brilliant would be great. And honest. That's a biggie, and seems to be very hard to find. Politically either moderate or conservative would be nice, but I guess if she's liberal and can stand me, then I can hardly do less.
I also like women who are more country than city. They're just more relaxed and tolerant, and nicer people. I'm sure there are exceptions to this, but you asked. And women who like kids are great; so many these days don't. Low maintenance is wonderful; defined as being able to take care of oneself. Mature, responsible and having a good sense of humor probably round out the description.
You may notice that I didn't mention anything physical. That's because that's secondary, and highly variable. When a man loves a woman, she becomes beautiful to him.
OOh. Some of those qualities describe me. But I'm not too relaxed in many ways (can be a bit uptight, wanting more and better). I like well-behaved kids immensely, but don't wanna give birth. Physical attractiveness is important to me. A million years ago, before I lost my hotness, I did a bit of modeling. I kind physical attraction between two people to be the glue that helps bind them together. Trustworthiness IS more important, though, and very rare.
I also love the city...lived in New York City for 8 years. But love the solitude and quiet and nature and safety of the country more now. I do miss 'civilization' a lot, though. In my 20's, I was certainly high-maintainence. But, I do without the 'fluff' now (grudgingly). Couldn't ever be as 'bad' as I was in my 20's. I understand VALUE now, and not just in a monetary sense.
Most of those things are negotiable. For instance, I suspect that, for a woman I truly loved, I might try to put up with being stuck in a city.
But unfortunately, children are the one thing that it's nearly impossible to compromise on. You can't have just half a kid. And sadly, it seems to be the fashionable these days to not want children. I don't quite understand it; when I was in college, I don't think I knew any women at all who didn't want to get married and have a family. Now, it seems like about a third or better of those I meet are averse to the idea.
<rhetorical> I don't know what happened; I still feel the same way, what is it that changed for everyone else? </rhetorical>
