My self-summary
Hello, my name is Daniel. I tend to write a lot, so in the spirit of being succinct, I'm going to describe my personality in bullet point form to appeal to the demographic of PowerPoint presenters that I am trying to attract to my profile.

- I am an artist of all stripes: I do music, writing and drawing (especially comics) and hopefully one day will make a semi-decent living out of any or all of those things. I already play music professionally in a bar, and I survive while abroad by busking.

- I'm an anarchist at heart, but I'm allergic to politics, even though that makes me feel guilty sometimes.

- People consider me clever, but I've never been quite sure why.

- My only long-term goals right now are to travel more. I've been to many other countries now, and every time I see another one it feels like the world just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I'd sort of like to go to school at some point too, but I have no idea what I'd want to do there.

And there you have it, PowerPoint enthusiasts. If my bullet points were to your liking, I'd love to hear back from you in the form of a three-to-four minute presentation. Bonus points if you use a snazzy font. Entries using Papyrus and Comic Sans anywhere in the presentation will not be accepted.
What I’m doing with my life
I got back from Mexico a little while ago, where I traveled with a group of 4 other people in a hippie van across the north and west of the country, busking to survive; we were supposed to go all the way through Central America and into Colombia, but money and health issues arose and we had to call it off.

For now in Vancouver, I'm working as a bouncer at Funky Winkerbean's pub on Hastings. Afterwards, I'm going to travel again. I'm looking at either Colombia (where we were intending to go in the first place and I still really want to) or Ireland - I've already been to Ireland before, but 2016 is going to be the one hundredth anniversary of the Easter Rising and that is going to be one hell of a time.

Beyond travelling, my other goals are music and writing-related. I'm an artist of several mediums and it's getting to be the time where I figure that I really should publish something. I'm working on a novel, and I hate telling people that because so is everyone else. I'm probably a third done of the first third of the book of the rough draft of the first book of three. You can read it if you want.
The first things people usually notice about me
My glasses are very strong and magnify my eyes so it looks like they are huge. My nickname in high school was Bubbles (as in, Trailer Park Boys Bubbles).

Which reminds me, if you're a samsquantch you can fuck right off.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My two favourite books are Watership Down by Richard Adams and the Worm Orobouros by ER Eddison. I have a tattoo on my right arm of the Worm Orobouros, and I have one planned for Watership Down for my left arm. So yes, I'm the kind of person who gets books tattooed on himself. I love reading. While in high school, I once went on a 5-mile jog for a class and read a book the entire time I was running.

I'm less enthusiastic about movies and shows, although if a really good program comes on then I'll watch it. Right now I'm really into Rick and Morty and Doctor Who.

Being a musician (21 years of piano, 7 of accordion) and having played in three bands officially, I have a great appreciation for just about all genres of music. As far as I'm concerned, if a song makes you FEEL something, it's a good song. Happiness, depression, anger, inspiration, these are all things that songs can and should bring out in people. Canned or overly-technical music is a huge turn-off for me and frankly kind of offends me. I hate going to malls because the music they play there starts to make me mad after awhile.

I used to only listen to classical and Irish folk music when I was younger, and then I used to only listen to black metal, and now I only listen to Wu-Tang Clan. My playlists are a mess.

I like food and I can't cook for shit.
The six things I could never do without
Frankly, I could do without any single thing in my life. Everything is transitory with me right now, and as soon as I save enough money I'm planning on leaving everything I have and whisking away to some other part of the globe.

The one possession I have that I care deeply about is my accordion (whose name, incidentally, is Gordon). Without him, I might be lost. He has been my primary source of income in the past, and when I get in bad moods he can be a wonderful source of therapy as well.

I'm fond of alcohol, maybe a bit overfond sometimes, but in all the two months I was in Mexico for recently I only probably ever actually got drunk three or four times - and Mexicans REALLY LIKE to share their drinks with you, generally. I could even forsake beer if I needed to.

So after that lengthy preamble, here are my six things I could never do without:
6. Gordon, my accordion
5. ....
4. ....
3. Oh wait, did I say my accordi... oh yes, I did.
2. ....
1. Fine. Beer, I guess.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I'm probably really screwing up my OKCupid match compatibility by answering those personal question things in obtuse ways and saying that how my ideal mate would answer almost all of them is "irrelevent."

The match system is weird anyway. I once found the person I hate most in the world on OKCupid (ask me about him!) and we were matched at 93% and I was furious.
On a typical Friday night I am
Being the only sober person at the bar, telling people they can't take their drinks outside, arguing that yes actually you do need your ID to come inside, breaking up fights, waiting for the bands to finish loading out their gear so I can start drinking.

Bouncer stuff.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a child I used to think that sex was about peeing into a girl's butt, and depending on how long the man peed it would determine how many children they had. And then the children would come out of the mother's belly button.

I still remember the look on my dad's face when I asked him how long he had to pee to have me and my sisters.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 22–30
  • Near me
  • For new friends, short-term dating
You should message me if
You're a one-eyed old man with a raven on each shoulder and wolves underfoot with some occult wisdom to impart unto me.
or like, anybody. I've met a lot of cool people of varying sexual preference off this site including lesbians and straight men and some remain friends of mine. This might be a 'dating' site, but I can't remember ever actually going on a real date resulting from an OKCupid meetup*. If you're cool, message me. If you're not, you can still message me. I won't judge.

*actually that's not true I did go on a date with a gay man I met on here once.
