If you are close to me: I will not lie to you. I will not cheat on you. I will accept you as you are, and never judge you. I will support you to the best of my abilities in achieving your goals, actively listen to you when you need a friendly ear, and whether you come as friend or lover, I will not betray your trust.
My patience is on such a level that you would not be able to upset me if you wanted to- and tangentially, you will never have reason to fear my temper. And if I say that I will or will not do something, you can rest assured knowing that I wouldn't have said it without expecting it to be true, and will do whatever is within my power to make it so.
So long story short, provided you do not betray or backstab me, if you're looking for an honest, loyal, even-tempered man who you can depend on, you've found him. (As a side note, I'm also good with kids and animals… except for certain specific dogs, which hate me. No fault of my own, I assure you.)
Downside is, while fiercely loyal- I can at times be egotistical, my actions tend to have ulterior motives, and unless you are strong willed yourself, I can seem domineering.
If you dislike being around highly logical people, get the fuck out. This is not to be mean- rather, I will be up front about the fact that a long term relationship between us will not work- you'd be wasting your time. For short term… it would still be inadvisable unless you are… shall we say… not planning to talk very much. In which case I'll leave it up to you.
If you don't want to be in a relationship with a quiet person- again- get the fuck out. I am soft-spoken. This does not mean that I am shy. It does not mean that I am incapable of being loud. Realistically speaking, I am soft-spoken because I see little point in speaking unless there's something worth saying, and because people are more likely to listen to suggestions than commands.
My sense of humor is dry, sarcastic, morbid on occasion, and more frequently than I'd like to admit, dirty. I do take precautions to temper it around people that are more likely to take offense, (as well as my usage of language) but if you're going to be around me over a long period of time, it would be best if you were open minded. I am not a racist, I am not sexist, and I do not inherently take pleasure in the suffering of others, but I can find amusement in these subjects as well as others. If you're going to be on my ass for making or laughing at jokes on such, then kindly relinquish the stick from thine own hindquarters, and remove thyself henceforth.
I am- simply put, a horny bastard. I will take care to respect your mood and your boundaries- if you don't want to be physical, if you're not interested in sleeping with me, if you're saving it for marriage, or if you're simply not up for it as often as I am, that is perfectly fine with me. Understand that in such cases, I will be viewing what material is required and relieving myself on my own in private. If you have a problem with this, well… deal with it. (I will leave the interpretation of 'it' to your own discretion) Contrarily, if you're up for it on a daily basis, I'd be more than capable- and happy to oblige. Multiple times.
I do not easily tolerate those what would think to control me. And have even less tolerance for pointless BS. I am not you nor anyone else's doormat, nor your porter, and if treated as such will simply step out. (This is not to say I don't like doing nice things for people, but like anyone else, I want to be appreciated for it.)
I am intelligent. And I don't mean I'm good at puzzles or math, but rather, 90% of the time- if I'm having a disagreement with someone, it's because they're wrong- or the argument is being held on untenable positions. I tend to be singularly unbiased in my opinion due primarily to the detachment from emotional constraints, and generally do not enter into debate on subjects in which I've not studied. (That being said, in the case I can be proven wrong, I will acknowledge my defeat, apologize, and withdraw graciously. I'm not pigheaded enough to stick to my guns if they're proven to be unloaded.)
I am, technically, Christian in beliefs. My personal take on theology is… not exactly what could be expected as usual of such. Understand that I am not a missionary- while I do take my beliefs literally, and seriously, I will not typically discuss them unless asked, and will typically only ask that you not disrespect them to my face. If you do want to know more about the specifics feel free to inquire; and even feel free to debate- do not expect to change my mind. My faith is primarily based on my logic- and I am well studied.
I am not what one could consider 'normal'. In fact I find the very concept reprehensible. I will never comprehend why so many people spend so much of their life striving to conform to mediocrity, when they could be so much more. I am unconventional, and proud of it, and I will continue to be as far beyond normal as I can possibly achieve. If you can't deal with that, well, to be entirely blunt, I probably wouldn't want to deal with you either. You boring git.
I have a definite plan for what I want to do and where I want to go in life- I would be perfectly happy if someone decided they wanted to join in, and align our pathways in such a way as we could continue on together. I would also be perfectly happy going our separate ways when it gets to that point and being long-distance friends if you do not want to come along- but I am not going to pin myself down to a significant other that's willing to stand in my way.
My interests tend to align with those of geek culture- I enjoy reading or watching movies- sci-fi and fantasy especially, and including graphic novels, comic books, manga, and anime. I enjoy playing video games, roleplaying (in and outside of the bedroom), tabletop games, boardgames, card games, and most manners of escapism in general. I am also creative- I write, draw, compose and play music (on a variety of instruments, but especially with my piano or voice), sculpt, cook, sew, and tinker. I also enjoy playing various sports and being active when I have a partner- including but not limited to baseball, softball, volleyball, tennis, biking, soccer, and swimming. More succinctly, I am a polymath, I enjoy most of the things I am good at, and there are very few things that I am not.
I am not the most fond of large group settings- parties, or the like, mainly because it creates an overflow of information that's difficult for me to process all at once. I much prefer one on one, or small group settings with people that know each other.
Also, as a warning, I tend to be exceptionally cuddly. I am a very physical person in general, and am more likely to show affection in the form of hugs, kisses, cuddles, back-rubs and the like or by doing things for you rather than by, say, talking. While I recognize and respect the need for private time and personal space, if you are not fond of cuddling at all… well, I'd probably not be the most optimal match in that area.
If you're still reading at this point, either you're interested, or you're a masochist- either way, excellent. Allons-y.
