^It's fucking freezing here. I wouldn't mind a nice warm cat in my bed.

Or a nice warm man...

Aged 29-34, with skin somewhere between the color of straight espresso and alabaster -- I don't really care, so long as it's smooth, with excellent hygiene, a healthy to absurdly skeptical worldview, good fashion sense, large and manly yet elegant hands (I'm a fan of long fingers, he is welcome to be a pianist), a high-paying job in the sciences or engineering, a lean and athletic build (and a fondness for athletic but curvy women), a strong feminist attitude, good sense of humor, not too clingy, preferably with a sexy accent (I'm thinking Scottish or English, though I've begun to develop more of an appreciation for the Aussies' and Kiwi's accents than I used to have), and a cat person.
Give me a few months and 29 is a go. Excellent hygiene, check. Fashion sense, yes, when I can find clothes large enough that are also stylish. Hands are...proportionate, large, but not overly long fingers. High-paying job...well, got one of the higher hourly wages of people I know. Build....eh, could be worked on. The fondness is a check though. Accent is slightly derpy Swedish. Have actually become a cat person after my mom got two a few years ago.

But, and I think this is a big point in my favor, I have a high core temp. So I am warm. And I am cuddly.

Hmm. Someone who is good and kind and strong. As in character, not physical strength so much.

Realistically I want someone who is kind and compatible, who shares my overal worldview and who shares mutual attraction. Not a tough guy or a bad boy, but a sweetheart with the same kind of cynical mean streak that I possess.

I also want enough money to pay off my student loans and my mom's house, the opportunity to go to grad school for a phd in neuroscience, a nice apartment that I get to decorate myself, to travel more, and eventually two sons, one biological and one adopted, named Ludo and Milo, the successful publishing of my novel and children's books, and a cure for type 1 diabetes, an end to poverty, a peaceful secular world, and the launch of an internationally collaborative space exploration program.
I am and can provide you almost none of these things. I am, however, a fantastic bullshitter, and can, at the very least, promise you all of them.

Anyway, as for myself, my wish list is rather simple:

* Alive
* A legal adult
* Good hygiene
* Sense of humor
* Compassionate

I'm flexible with everything else.

"But John," you say, "what can you provide to a potential partner?"

Excellent question, anonymous, interested third party! I can offer the following, and have the following talents and/or abilities:

* I'm a good cook.
* I am a thorough and efficient house cleaner.
* I'm a capable and experienced handyman.
* I am well read.
* I am a capable singer, and can also mix it up on the dance floor.
* I can hold conversations on thousands of topics.
* I am compassionate and kind.
* I listen to your needs.
* I am slow to anger.
* I bathe regularly.
* I'm a romantic.
* I am completely comfortable with my sexuality.
* I'm a rationalist, but I do have strong emotions, particularly when it comes to love and acceptance.
* I'm honest to a fault without being abrasive.
* I have long fingers and a very strong tongue.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I'd recommend myself, but I don't want to subject the poor girl to that. Plus, I don't know if she'd consider a mid-Atlantic/Virginia accent "sexy." Hell, many people say I barely even have one compared to most other natives of this area!

That and there's the action figure collection. Unless she's very open minded I don't think she'd tolerate it for more than a week. However, if you like the idea of a guy who loves cats and dogs, trims his fingernails once a week, showers regularly and gargles enough minty mouthwash and rinse to shut down my liver then give me a ring.

The boys helping me blow out my candles, celebrating my 45th birthday. While excited to sing Happy Birthday to me, I suspect all they really wanted was the cake.

Can I just add, if it's something I'm constantly called, it's "sweet".

In all seriousness, that's a pretty good list. Might just have to go lazy route and second that.

I've always been awesome.

So today I went down to a local restaurant to visit some of my former server friends (somehow none of us can leave the industry!), and they snapped this picture.

This post is epic in so many ways.
If you're gonna dream, dream large.

Be careful what you wish for, I'm steamy warm!

The cat is also not for sale. She's too adorable.
