My self-summary
I'm looking to meet people in Indiana and Ohio. I'm open to the possibility of making new friends, but am mainly here for dating. Feel free to interpret that however you like, because it can mean a lot of different things, as far as I'm concerned. I'm very open-minded and more adventurous than one might expect from an artsy book nerd ;)

I am kind, passionate, literate, playful, dedicated, creative, sensual, empathetic, thoughtful, honest, witty, imaginative, musical, reliable, social, curious and confident.

I recognize that many people find it useful to subscribe to imaginary dating rules. I'm a playful person, but I am uninterested in prescriptive dating "games." For example, if you send me a message and I want to respond, I will probably write back as soon as circumstances allow, rather than wait two days (or whatever convention) for no good reason. I love words and know how to say what I mean. You don't need a "guy speak" lexicon to figure me out. I imagine that would get very confusing, very quickly.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in a college library and spend most of the rest of my time drawing and playing original music at small to medium size venues around Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky.
I’m really good at
When I'm not working in the library, I like to spend time creating and learning -- sometimes alone, sometimes with other people around. That isn't to say that I don't ever just veg out, or go swimming / hiking / camping for no other reason.

When I'm feeling creative, I like to draw, paint, write songs and poetry, and play guitar. Some of my drawings are online: Achilles Tenderloin, Ink

"Learning," for me, can mean anything from reading a book to observing nature, trying new things, watching an interesting movie/series, or listening to music. The world is an open book.

It's not unusual to see me laughing and dancing with far more enthusiasm than most humans. I'm definitely not a pro with loads of formal training, but I've been known to swing, twist, skank, pogo, head bang, soft shoe and, um, flail with strategic abandon.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably, that I appear to be mysteriously happy. It's not a secret, but I don't really know I'm smiling, either, most of the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My Librarything (a little out of date)
Here is a handful of authors I like, in no particular order:
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Jean Toomer, Neil Gaiman, Bill Watterson, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Amit Majmudar, Douglas Adams, Seamus Heaney, Langston Hughes, Roald Dahl, Emily Dickinson, Sharon Olds, Ovid, Lois Lowry, Richard Wright, Leonard Cohen

Most of the movies I like best are funny, thoughtful, or some combination. I also like a bit of (or more than a bit of) weirdness in a film. In fact, go ahead and apply that to all of the categories--weird gets bonus points across the board.

These are just harvested from my Facebook 'likes.' I didn't sit down and type out this long, alphabetical list.

The six things I could never do without
belly laughs
bent strings
night swimming
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Words. Images. Foods. Sex. Songs. Makin' stuff. The human condition. What I can say next to make a drink come out of someone's nose. Metaphor and how people use it to understand the world around them (poorly, or otherwise).
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing guitar. Dancing. Makin' stuff. Eating and drinking tasty things. Talking and laughing about the things I'm thinking about. Talking and laughing about the things other people are thinking about--on a good night, I am not alone at the time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Private Part One:
I have never watched It's a Wonderful Life, or read The Catcher in the Rye; and I have no intention of ever doing so, even though I like Jimmy Stewart and J.D. Salinger.

Private Part Two:
Only one of my baby teeth fell out on its own. The rest were surgically removed when I was little. So, I had braces in middle school and again in college. These days, I have a very nice smile and use it gratuitously, even with strangers :D
