My self-summary
Umm...

I'm emotionally complicated, I suppose... yet materialistically simple. All I need in my life is my dog (I adore animals in general), and music (I can't go a day without good music). I mainly listen to black metal, old-school death metal, doom metal, some old-school thrash, folk metal, classic hard rock, some old alternative rock, and a lot more. Other than rock and heavy music in general, I also listen to the other side of the musical spectrum. I listen to a lot of beautiful music... like neo-folk, classical music, some shoegaze/post rock, movie soundtracks, and A LOT of video game soundtracks... especially Final Fantasy. I use music as a filter, to basically not take out my anger on people who may or may not deserve it. I collect vinyl records, my favorite format.

Music aside, I really enjoy anything creative or artistic. I especially like occult/horror art, but I'm not exactly limited to that either.

Despite my looks, I'm pretty much a really nice guy for the most part. If you earn my trust you can expect to be treated really well. I'm honest, loving, expressive, caring, and generally extremely romantic, haha. So, I need someone who can match my intensity on this kind of topic. Someone who isn't about playing games, or bullshitting lies. A girl who doesn't like toying with people's emotions... and who is looking for something real, mature, and committed. I'm tired of dead-end relationships.

I believe that as powerful as darkness and hatred can be, love is the most important aspect of life. In my mind there is nothing as beautiful as being in love with someone special, and with all sincerity I say that is truly what I consider the essence of true beauty. That is when the world matters not beyond the borders of what is happening within the love you share and your yearning hearts.

In a special someone I generally look for a girl who can be intelligent, funny, caring, thoughtful, sweet, kind, someone who loves animals, conversational, less shy than myself, and yeah... someone who I can find physically beautiful as well (remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder). Of course, I'd like to share a mutual attraction (meaning it would be nice if you found me attractive as well, it's only fair). Just a heads up, I don't really find girls with short hair attractive, it's just not my thing... sorry. Ummm... someone who is artistic in any way, shape, or form is always a huge plus for me.

So far I’ve gotten nine tattoos, and I plan on getting more (just not too many more). I love anything artistic in nature.

Now, one thing I should point out is that I despise religion. I feel very strongly about my own views and convictions on that subject, but if you don’t consider yourself to be too religious or pushy about it, and can tolerate blasphemous music and tattoos, it could work. I need to feel as though I can be myself around you. There are certain religions that I can respect more than others, but I'm fine with dating any religious person so long as they aren't crazy about it.

Anyway, I'll leave it here for now... message me if you want to know more about me.

Anything else you’d like to know just ask. I think the questions I have answered so far are some really good insights to who I am, especially the ones with explanations.

PS - I DON'T have casual sex, I loathe it. I need to feel love before wanting to have sex with anybody. That doesn't exactly happen overnight, so if you're looking for a quick lay then just get the hell away from me. I don't care if that doesn't sound manly... I'm a hopeless romantic and damn proud of it!
What I’m doing with my life
Looking forward to a better future, to be honest. It's a long story, but because of dealing with depression (yes, I have a major depressive disorder, but I fight it day in and day out) and another very personal issue caused by the depression for many years (just ask!), I was stuck in a hole. Now I feel much better and I'm trying to move my life forward. I'm doing something about it... but I'd rather you ask what it is, since I myself am not entirely sure which path to take, it's complicated.

My perception of my own blissful existence (i.e. paradise/my goals) is pretty simple. I just want to live a life with someone I love, and have a good job which I enjoy working with animals. It's something that many would take for granted, but I have not lived a normal life, so I would treasure this.

Remember when I said that I am materialistically simple? This means that I value love, and a close connection with someone special over the things that we could buy, and the money we could have. What I'm trying to say is, while I AM goal oriented, it is to a very limited extent. I cherish the ones I have, but don't look to me if you want to live "the finer things in life" kind of lifestyle, I'd much rather place a higher emphasis on being in love and happy within the company of someone I'd love and cherish.
I’m really good at
To be honest, I would rather get to know someone, and have THEM tell me what I am good at. I'm not much of a bragger. But for the sake of the question at hand, I would say that yeah, giving people I love comfort is probably what I am best at.

I have definitely been told I am good at playing the drums far more than once. Even though I haven't been able to play in years I still have my chops, and I can accept that one ;)

Other than this, ummm... I'm not sure. Does being openly unique count as a skill? Probably not. I've always taken pride in being myself with or without the acceptance of others. In fact that might as well be my motto. I believe that if you are 100% you, without any single fragment of a masquerade, well, not everybody is going to like you, but those that do... they will end up loving you for who you truly are. Not something you pretended to be, but your true essence.

OhhHH! I'm also an acceptable cook, especially when it comes to pasta! :D
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my long hair, tattoos, and lip piercing.

I just... don't like hiding who I am, not even physically. I feel suffocated when I have to wear something that I don't like. I HATE labels and stereotypes of any kind. So please don't judge me from my outer shell.

No matter what I say you will see me as you want to anyway, so there is no point in any elegant answer I might give to this question.

How about YOU tell ME what you noticed first? HUH!? Go for it :D
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't like reading books, sorry. Nothing personal...

As long as I am with the right person I'll watch *mostly anything. Action movies bore the living hell out of me. UGH! Fucking pointless movies. I swear those are like a self-induced coma through overdosing on horse tranquilizers for me... good luck waking me up!

Favorite movie genres are horror (the gore and suspense kind, not that cheap ghost crap) and comedy, and also the mix of the two. That's my main taste, but there exists a very small handful of movies outside of these genres that I do enjoy.

Shows are basically all in the adult cartoon section. Stuff like Beavis and Butt-head, Futurama, King of the Hill, Ugly Americans, American Dad, The Venture Brothers, Family Guy, Bob's Burgers, Archer, Daria, Mission Hill, etc. Out of all of these, Archer would be my go-to show when I'm sad or depressed. So, if you ever care about me, make me watch Archer when I'm sad! :D

I also thoroughly enjoy three anime shows from my adolescence... Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, and Wolf's Rain.

Music is my biggest passion (tied with animals). I listen to many things. There are layers to every person. As I mentioned earlier, while I do listen to beautiful music, I also listen to the other side of the musical spectrum. My favorite music is metal. Death metal, thrash metal, folk metal, doom metal, black/thrash, some avantgarde metal... but my absolutely favorite sub-genre is black metal and most of anything related to it.

Many ask "why listen to this?"...

Because life isn't all rainbows and butterflies, you have to face the fears that most of mankind runs away from. Plus, instead of taking my anger out on people, I use music to cleanse darkness, thus the negative becomes a positive. It really doesn't matter what kind of music it is, so long as I like it (metal, folk, piano soundtracks, etc.). Music is my filter. It basically holds what's left of my frail sanity together ;)

Some of the more well known bands I love are early Pearl Jam, The Smashing Pumpkins, Mother Love Bone, Led Zeppelin, Blind Melon, The Cult, Stone Temple Pilots, Tool, Oasis, Red Hot Chili Peppers (even though most of their lyrics are gibberish, which irritates me), The Cranberries, A Perfect Circle, Frank Sinatra, Cream, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, and a lot more surprises!

My absolute favorite band is Arcturus. A Norwegian avant-garde metal band from Oslo. I have a fascination with this band.

Not enough? How about this... there are a lot of scattered songs that you would never guess I would like that I do actually love. Random love songs and such. LeAnn Rimes, anyone? Haha. I just lost my man-card didn't I? F*ck!

And food. I don't really care what I eat (nothing "weird" though), although I try to eat healthy portions. I really love fruit and cheese though. Not that it matters.
The six things I could never do without
- My dog Toki. He's a Labrador Retriever. He's also my sexified little man! Haha. He means the world to me, seriously. I don't think I will ever meet a person this loyal, and I will be surprised if I ever came home to find someone that is even 10% as excited to see me as he is. I know I've had to have done something right to have someone love me that much.

- My music collection (I mostly collect vinyl LPs). This is my main hobby, and I have a respectable collection. My record player is what I use to escape the world.

- Reflections... I like thinking of ways to better myself, and my life. As well as the life of those around me that I care about. I'm a very giving person, and I tend to put others before myself.

- Love, love, and... you guessed it! Herpes! NO! Love :) Awww.

- My dreams and aspirations in life. One could say I'm not all that ambitious, but I'd disagree. Because the dreams I do have I take very seriously.

- Diet Coke. Hehe. No but seriously, is it possible to replace your blood with this stuff!? Honestly, I need rehab.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm usually wondering if/when I will ever find the girl of my dreams. It sounds cheesy, but it's true. I think about how great it would be to hold someone with tender warmth, to caress my would-be-love's cheeks with so much finesse that she could literally feel the love from my fingertips transmitted in through her pores. All while looking into her eyes and seeing a cluster of stars... *sigh*

These are simple things that couples do that a lot of the time they take for granted, unless they are in deep seas of love. Little bits of joy found in everyday life that can be made that much better when sharing them with a special person. Ask me specifically about this, and I'll tell you!

These are the kind of songs that inspire romantic thoughts in me:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qT8fJ940AS4

About love: I know that every person has their own definition of what the word "love" means to them. I have my own. All I can say is that it would take finding a like-minded person, so ask!

I'm one of the few people in Miami that actually knows what being a real hopeless romantic is, and I define myself as one, proudly.

Romance aside, I love space. I'm fascinated with the stars, nebulae, constellations, and the moon. Then there's Diet Coke (without it I get headaches, no joke), animals (especially my dog), nature, my two beautiful cousins who I miss very much, haha...

I also wonder about my future. Music, artwork, tattoos, you name it... many things flow through my mind and I'm always looking for different means of expression. My thoughts range anywhere from stupid silly stuff, like how much easier my life would be if I looked like Archer, or what my dog would sound like if he could speak... to thoughts about psychology and the human mind, and breaking my brain trying to figure out Déjà vu (as stupid as that sounds, haha).
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends... but usually bored out of my mind... man do I hate being bored.

If I'm not babysitting my nephew I'm either listening to music, drinking a craft beer (I don't drink cheap cat-pee beers, don't ever buy me that, haha), playing with my dog, studying, Netflixing (that's a word, right?), or Pandoraing (that's definitely a word, I'm positive). Maybe all of the above. Who knows and/or cares.

I guess more than anything I'm usually looking for new good music and just discovering bands and artists.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't live alone. It's not that I am not independent, or that I don't WANT to live alone, I wish I could. The rest (like who I live with and what not) I would rather discuss personally. All I can say is that it's a complicated living situation, and it's definitely not so black and white. You'd have to ask.

PS - You might be wondering why I only have sex when in love, this seems like one of those things that "I'm willing to admit." It's because I see sex differently than most others. To me it's a beautiful expression of the love that two people share. It's being so comfortable around each other, that you intertwine and present yourselves as everything you are. It's basically just another way to make the love between two people even stronger, love grows. I don't see it as just simple physical pleasure.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–28
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
Just go for it, I guess! I'll decide whether to reply or not. But hey, if you don't mind more text then here is what I'm looking for:

Someone who is:

An interesting person to talk to. Someone conversational (that would ReeeeeeeALLY help as I am very shy).

Intelligent, loving, caring, thoughtful, sweet, pretty, a music fanatic (just please not rap/hip hop), loyal, sincere, understanding, you still believe in true love, ROMANTIC (this is CRUCIAL).

*I've grown tired of not finding quality people in this city, so even though I would much prefer someone who lives near me, you CAN go ahead and message me if you live in another state and feel like there's a high chance for whatever reason that we'd actually one day meet.

You need to be communicative. We need to be in contact otherwise I wouldn't feel interest.*

Second to being romantic, the next best characteristic a girl can have for me is to be funny. That ALWAYS helps break the ice with me and my fucken' shyness! Plus, it's just so cute and adorable :)

As far as looks go, yes, I do place emphasis on physical beauty, but it's more about the entire way you come off to me. I don't want to sound like a bastard but there HAS to be some kind of mutual attraction. It may sound shallow, but unfortunately this is online dating, so first impressions in pictures have to be good. It avoids the awkward dates. :)

Please READ the following:

I know I don't sound like a typical guy, especially not the average metalhead. I am fully aware that EVERY fucking guy on this earth says that they are different in a pathetic attempt to impress you or take you to bed.

I will tell you the same, I am different. I'm not like the others. But one thing no other person will likely ever tell you is that I know words from a stranger mean nothing. You have to leave it to time to be the only true redeemer, and let actions speak louder.

Not only do I NOT blame self-respecting women for not believing in most men, I myself don't even expect you to believe me. Like I said, let time tell the story. But give people chances, otherwise you are guaranteeing yourself a loss.
