Equal parts geek, nerd, fanboy, and dork. I'm very, very awkward socially. It doesn't help that my brain tends to work faster than my mouth, but that's not why. I'm not good at small talk or introductions. Get me into a real conversation and I'm golden, but chit-chat just to fill the silence drives me crazy, and I'm not any good at it.
Politically liberal, but personally conservative. I don't have, or particularly like, piercings or tattoos, I eat meat regularly, and I am not even remotely 420 friendly. While I love college football, I'm not a Longhorn fan, in fact, I'm quite the opposite. I've been told I live in the wrong city because I hate burnt orange, but let's be realistic: I'm too liberal for the rest of the state. I strongly believe that you have the right to do whatever self-destructive thing you want, as long as you don't harm anyone else, or put yourself in a situation where hurting someone else is likely.
I'm an agnostic, but religion-friendly. I have no patience for anyone, from any belief structure, who feels resentment, bitterness, or rage at anyone else's beliefs. That's a brand of negativity that I've been trying very hard to completely remove from my life.
I love Austin, and while I'm not really personally liberal enough for Austin, I'm probably much too liberal for the rest of the state. That said, I miss Houston terribly, keep trying to find reasons to visit, and have considered moving back on more than one occasion, so if you're from Houston and I message you, that's why.
I'm an honest person. I don't like the modern game of pretending to be something you're not -- as far as dating goes, that's self-destructive because the truth invariably comes out. I don't play the hook-up game, and my ultimate goal is finding THAT person. The one I'll know I can take on the world with. If I meet great friends along the way, fine -- but I'm not here to collect bedpost notches or friends with benefits.
