I'm not going to lie, bullshit or exaggerate to sell myself. I value honor and honesty above all else, so this is going to be a warts-n'-all type of profile. You can be assured that pictures of me are recent and that my age is correct. What you see is what you get.
I'm mellow, easy-going, openly affectionate, loving, a good listener (according to my friends) and loyal to a fault. On the down-side, I can be obsessive, stubborn and spacey, with a tendency to live inside my own head (which a lot of creative people do) or with my nose in a book.
I've been a freak/mutant/misfit/outsider pretty much all of my life and usually have difficulty connecting to people who aren't at least a little "weird" themselves. I've been a part of both the Punk and Goth sub-cultures (never a Metal-head, although I do love a lot of the darker, heavier stuff). I don't think I've ever dated a woman without piercings and tats, although that's certainly not a prerequisite of mine.
I love the cute nerdy girls. Intelligence is a MUST and creativity a huge plus. Body-wise I like everything from androgynous women with slim, boyish bodies to women with curvy, zaftig figures and everything in between. I guess I just like women in general, and personality is more important to me than body-type. I'm just lucky in that respect. If I like you, I'm going to like your body.
I love animals. I'm a "cat person" but ADORE dogs as well. If you don't love or at least like animals I don't even want to know you. Seriously.
Politically, I'm what would be considered on the "far Left" of the American political spectrum (in Europe I'd be in the center). I'm a Democratic Socialist, a registered Green and always vote third party. I'm reluctant to call myself a "Liberal", since being a Liberal these days evidently means supporting drone killings, indefinite detention, torture and warrantless wiretapping. To me, "Democrat" and "Republican" are just brand choices, like Coke or Pepsi: either way you basically get the same thing. Above all, I believe in SOCIAL JUSTICE and Civil Liberties.
I'm the American-born son of German immigrants, so if you're a Germanophobe (prejudiced towards all German people because of horrible things the scumbag Nazis did) please move on.
Religion-wise I'm a Gnostic Christian with Valentinian leanings. Confused? Yeah, that's why I usually just say "Christian", although I'm probably not like any Christian you've ever met. I believe in science, for one thing. I believe in evolution, am stridently PRO-CHOICE, pro-marriage equality and, since I take the Bible very seriously, do not take it LITERALLY. I believe in Freedom of Religion, the very heart of which is freedom *from* religion. You know those folks who think Jesus rode around on dinosaurs, hate on gay people and are pro-war and pro-death penalty? Yeah, I ain't one of them.
What am I looking for? A good-hearted, compassionate human being with a great sense of humor, a sense of honor and someone who, as a rule, doesn't play head-games. You love animals, are on the Left of the political spectrum, and respect the rights of others to live their lives free of societal constrictions. You don't have to be religious or even believe in God, but you have to have a sense of ethics or a code (preferably one that sees people not as a means to an end, but as an end in themselves).
