My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
As of 11/16/2013 I am no longer single. I still want to make new friends, however, if you write me asking for a platonic friendship please make this evident in your email. Do not keep me guessing as to whether or not you have ulterior motives ;)

-Honestly if you really want to get to know me you should take a look at the questions section, I elaborate on most of them so it's a really good way to learn a little more about how I operate in the world.

-I am not overly fond of labels relating to sexual orientation or familial ties. I believe that love can be found anywhere, and as long as it is mutual there should be no barrier to it.

-I have two friends that are as close to me as brothers -I believe- seeing as how I don't have any blood related siblings.

- I'm in love with the fact that this is the only dating site I've come across so far that lets me utilize my meager knowledge of HTML :D

What I'm looking to get out of this site:

- I'm not interested in one night stands.

- My end game is to find the love of my life. I'm looking for my Han Solo, my Garrus Vakarian, my Monarch.
- Until then I'm interested in meeting new people and learning more about myself.
- This currently includes meeting and making new friends (male and female)

I can tell you that my ideal man shares a lot in common with me, can challenge me, is willing to compromise, is as comfortable letting others have their way as he is taking charge, takes care of his appearance, also has a depraved sense of humor, laughs loud, and loves freely and passionately.

-Also I'm really not looking for anything long distance. Trying to keep it within Illinois.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm playing the starving artist game, though I actually eat very well :D I always have a project I'm working on or a novel I'm writing, some day soon I'll be able to live off my creative talents alone.

I'm making plans to go back to school and get another degree... or two ;)

I'm on a quest to find out who I am. I know a lot more about myself now than I did even two years ago, and I feel like I'm really happy with the person I've become.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Visual Art I'm passionate about drawing and illustration. Big bold colors are an integral part of my work, as are strongly defined human figures. As I've grown as an artist I'm come to value how the public views my art, more than any message I'm trying to send. I really want to understand how imagery and text elicit emotional responses.

Roleplaying & Writing Character design and world building are my biggest strong points. My passion for mythology and sociology have led me to create highly detailed settings for novels as well as pen and paper roleplaying campaigns.

Bouncing back I can get knocked down, but I always manage to balance out within a few hours.

Making the best of a bad situation I've become rather accomplished at turning chores into games, and rolling with the punches when plans abruptly change.
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

My cats
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Who I am and what my values are.

-What I want to be writing, especially what I want my writing to communicate.

-What artistic project I should be working on, and how to get over my fear of starting and progressing through it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing from the work week, usually with a good meal and a drink. Occasionally a game, or maybe a film. I might go out and party with my friends if they're available, eating and drinking as well :D
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I fell in love with a woman once, but didn't realize it until recently. That is how I came to understand that I could have an emotional relationship with a woman, but it couldn't be a romantic one. For that I need the whole package : emotional & physical fulfillment, which for myself would require a male counterpart.
