Well, let's see. I'm gay. And Jewish. And a navy brat. Oh, and an only child, too. Kudos if you're still reading this :)
I'm actually not religious these days (basically an atheist). Judaism is definitely part of my identity, but more as a cultural aspect rather than a religious one. It has shaped everything from my sense of morals to my sense of humor. I may reach a point in my life when I decide to rediscover my religious devotion, but right now, not so much.
I've been out of the closet since I was 18. Never looked back.
I have a B.A. with majors in Communication Studies and Philosophy. The philosophy was for fun (I'm really more of an armchair philosopher than anything else) - the comm studies was to actually get a job. I never pursued a Masters because my graduation had already been severely delayed due to health issues.
I'm a Leo, but not a very good one. I guess I can be kind of arrogant and stuck-up, but I'm not a party animal nor a very aggressive person. I think I should have been a Libra or Virgo. I've been called an "old soul" before, and it's probably true. I'm usually very serious and my sense of humor is more dry and sarcastic (and often filthy) than anything else; but I love cartoons and children's literature, too. I can be pretty goofy and nonsensical with people I'm comfortable with. I also curse a lot and have a filthy and subversive sense of humor.
I used to work in the health-food industry (yes, it was retail!). I'm not a vegetarian, but I do try to watch what I eat.
I love the smell of incense and of the air after a good rain. I like to stay up late and sleep in. I like to daydream and totally forget where I am. I like to sing, even though I'm generally bad at it. I can waste hours browsing YouTube or just random web-surfing. I remember faces better than names. I believe in soul-mates. I don't like clutter and I hate to accumulate useless junk, but I'm also lazy and hate cleaning.
I need to state outright that I am extremely allergic to cats. I like cats, but I can't be near them very long and I definitely can't live with them. So if you have to have a cat in your life and a dorky Leo won't suffice, then we probably weren't meant to be.
I'm usually "the nice guy" and often the responsible one. Spontaneity is fine when some planning is involved.
