UPDATE: I am back in Vermont until I graduate from college in June, then I will be back in Chicago until I figure out what I'm doing for grad school (though I do have a job already for the summer which is a plus).
DATING UPDATE: I have recently decided it would be more accurate for me to say I'm "Straight" on this site since there isn't really a way to specify what my preference is. I like men but unfortunately I don't think that extends enough for me to say I'm interested in a romantic relationship with men. I'd say I'm able to have romantic feelings for them but I am almost Asexual when it comes to physical feelings. So, I am happy to meet guys as friends. But I'm pretty much now femmesexual-straight doesn't quite describe me right.
LOCATION NOTE: I live in Chicago but I go to college in Vermont. This is my final year at college.
I guess I should start by saying that I identify somewhere between bisexual/pansexual and possibly demi-sexual since I don't usually develop sexual feelings until I've really gotten to know someone. I consider myself to be self identified male/gender queer. Feel free to ask what that means to me. I am NOT interested in polyamory, sorry (you can ask me why, but you might be bored by the story). I am not opposed to it, I just don't think it works for me personally.
I'm pretty much the usual nerdy/artsy type. I love reading, books, hanging out in bookstores and making/looking at art. I'm pretty traditional about it. I draw, paint and I do animation the old fashioned way (hand draw and I use a scanner to put it onto my computer to edit).
I like going to anime conventions and I am eager to someday
attend a Star Wars convention. I do cosplay at conventions and I'm pretty much okay with most nerdoms (as I like to call them) so if you're a nerd (of any kind), feel free send a message my way. =)
I'd describe myself as a sensitive and multi-layered person who likes to be direct and honest. I like to look at life as a story that is unfolding but that if you work hard at it it'll somehow work itself out. I'm curious and spontaneously random, but loyal and loving to a fault at times.
I am definitely an animal person, I love the outdoors, sports and having meandering adventures exploring new places.
I don't like people who are sexists, anti-semitic, homophobic,
closed minded, racist, or promote hatred in any way. I find people
who base their lives on hatred to be unintelligent and ultimately
not worth talking to because they don't change their minds.
