I don't have a detectable ego. I do have one, but I keep it to myself. I'm incredibly shy, and at times socially awkward. I don't drink, dance, smoke tobacco, or care about team sports at all. I absolutely love animals. I cuddle with animals even when I know they will give me an allergic reaction (only certain animals). I have a good sense of humor, I love making fun of myself, and I like to be silly almost all of the time. In many situations, I have no shame.
Music is incredibly important to me. I don't expect you to like my favorite, Lamb of God, but I do expect you to like my close second, Black Label Society. If your favorite music is modern pop music, modern country, or most rap (I do have a couple guilty pleasures), then we probably will not advance beyond friendship. I'm not a trend follower. I don't care about pop culture. The radio has a very small effect on what music I like. I'm disgusted by celebrity news/gossip.
I don't like people who readily raise their voices, or overly-dramatic people, or attention whores. I actively try to not be a jerk. When my schedule allows it, I volunteer at a soup kitchen.
I'm incredibly affectionate. I like to give and receive lots and lots of affection. This can be in a friendly way, romantic way, or sexual way. Sometimes those ways can overlap. Not always. I am monogamous. I am a great lover. If I am dating someone, then I will always offer to drive. I will open your door for you, always let you order dinner first, and always let you get the bill. Just kidding on that last one!
I haven't been camping since I was a teenager but I have been wanting to do so for a while. My idea of a good time is just sitting somewhere peaceful and having long discussions and cuddling. Listening to entire albums beginning to end. Museums, concerts, theater. Watching Rachel Maddow, Star Trek: TNG, Real Time with Bill Maher, the original X-Men, or sci-fi/action movies. Playing Super Mario Allstars or Mario 64 or Final Fantasy III.
Feel free to ask me anything.
I am compassionate, affectionate, and rational
