I'm a composer, songwriter, improv accompanist (and occasional improviser), and vaudeville comedian.
The long of it:
The things I enjoy are a good way to tell what I'm like - I'm mostly an introvert and a bit reclusive, but when I do go out I like a symphony, a ballet, an opera, a burlesque & vaudeville show (and on a very rare occasion, a rock concert). I like zoos, aquariums, and museums. I like trees, being around them, being under them, and being in them. When I'm staying in I like watching old movies, reading, playing silly and pointless board games, card games, snuggling... other things like that. I enjoy driving for a few hours to get somewhere pretty, preferably with very few people around. Generally I quite dislike bars, clubs, and other noisy places where people are packed in like sardines (unless I'm onstage), although I will occasionally go to one of a few goth clubs when my feet get happy and need to dance. I go to one or two baseball and hockey games a year if I'm able, but I'm by no means a huge sports fan. I'm sure most of that sounded fairly generic, but it is genuinely how I like to spend my time. If wanderlust or partying and drinking are a lifestyle to you, we're not a good match.
I have a propensity for cynicism, and I take life far too seriously at times. But I will always try to find the laughter in any given situation (I'm Russian, I'll make you laugh no matter how miserable I am).
I think I unfortunately come off as rather anomalous to most people because I'm an artist, fairly eccentric (so I'm told), and my tastes span a wide range. Yet, I prefer quiet surroundings, calm, relaxed entertainments, and straightforward, grounded people who don't have to move whenever the wind changes. One could easily lump me in with the "goth" camp, but that wouldn't be totally accurate. None of my closest friends are goth, and it's certainly not a lifestyle to me - just something I naturally fall into more often than I intend. Let me put it this way: If you've ever seen The Addams Family TV show from the 60s, you'll get a fairly accurate depiction of my idea of heaven. I like normality and weirdness wrapped up together in a neat little bundle.
The idea of traveling the world is appealing to me only if I have a home base to come back to. I need a fair degree of constancy.
Something I've noticed is always important to mention early on when it comes to dating: I have a pet tarantula (ya know, a big fuzzy spider). She stays in her terrarium and doesn't bother anybody, I swear.
Epilogue: Whatever we've been taught about the respective male and female processes of attraction, I don't want to have to win you despite my appearance. I don't want you to compromise. I want a woman who is genuinely attracted to me. I'm tall, I'm skinny, I've got a beard (which I won't shave), and I can dress fairly garishly at times (But I don't really dress how I want to very often. I'm not without my social graces - I know when to tone it down, which is honestly most of the time because I also don't like being stared at). Look, it doesn't matter if you're heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, queer, or whatever - you're attracted to what you're attracted to, and if you're not attracted to me, then God be with ye on the quest for your love, dear lady!
