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 (by which I mean I'm 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. But really not into the religion thing.
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 have a dry, sarcastic (and often filthy and subversive) sense of humor. I curse a lot and am not easily offended. I love video games, cartoons, and fantasy novels.
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.
