If you’re into biographies, I was born in Charleston, SC but moved to Houston as a li’l baby. I went to school in Boston for 4 years, but I’m back home to take a breather and figure out my next move.
Things that are kind of integral to me, I guess?
I do like to think I’m a perfect gentleman, and will always try to be kind to everyone I encounter. But also, I can be a fucking snark machine. I love teasing, and I’m frequently sarcastic. I don’t mind some friendly backlash, either, and I’m not a tough target at all: I’m a huge science dork who gets too excited about science and nature things, and I have plenty of guilty pleasures on the far side of the masculinity scale.
On paper, this sounds like a pretty bland cop-out, but I really am a pretty easy-going person, easy to get along with (as long as you’re not a complete raging asshole). I’m soft-spoken when I first meet people, but once the ice is broken, or something piques my interest, or I have a drink to numb the awkward, I can get to talking. Piquing my interest isn’t a challenge: science (biology/psychology), nature/animals (especially the poor ugly ones nobody likes), literature/TV/films/pop culture, and sports will all do the trick.
Also humor. I’m punny and goofy and offensive, and I’m almost constantly joking and laughing. …Whether or not I have a “good” sense of humor is a matter of opinion, because I love me some good bad jokes and terrible, shameless puns. If you really make me laugh, I’ll like you for sure.
I can also be serious and curious and inquisitive, don’t worry. I like to ponder and meditate and have deep talks about nearly all matters. I’m all for adventures and adrenaline rushes and mischief and shenanigans. I’m all for lying and lazing in peace, and being quiet and boring with the ones I love.
Like many others, I don’t have some singular goal being on this site. Friend, girlfriend, arch-nemesis, it’s whatever.
