I don't really know where to start...I can be pretty shy at first,
until I get comfortable and get to know someone. I sometimes really
need someone to pull me outta my shell. Not a big partier or club
goer...I don't mind the occasional bar though, just not really into
the "gay scene". Trying to live a more active lifestyle and get out
more and try new things so I'm up for almost anything. I'd love to
be more "outdoorsy" or whatever that non-word is. Very much a
romantic kinda guy, I'm extremely loyal and I'm ALL about the
couple stuff. I'm a HUGE cuddler...yes, I am but a giant teddy
I can be a very blunt person. Very opinionated. Sometimes to a
fault, I think. Basically, I just don't like bullshit. Say what you
mean, mean what you say. Umm...I'm told I'm a funny, intelligent
guy. You can be the judge of that. I have confidence but I'm not a
big fan of going off on a rant about my "amazing" qualities like
some people are. I'm a pretty humble, modest person.
FYI, I'll rarely make the first move. If I rate you 4 or 5 stars,
it's probably because I'm interested and trying to get your
What I’m doing with my life
I have plans! I feel like I'm getting a late start on said plans
but still...they are plans and they do exist. I have a real love
for animals and I've thought about working with them, volunteering
and such. I have a love of food and the culinary arts...thats a big
possibility at some point but will more than likely stay a hobby.
Basically just getting by for the moment and I have plans to start
school again pretty soon.
I’m really good at
I definitely have a passion for cooking. Painting is a big hobby of
mine, I'm told I'm pretty good. I'm a great listener and I try to
be the best friend I can be.
The first things people usually notice about me
You'd have to ask "people". Probably that I'm kinda shy at first.
Er...not really shy, I hate that word...let's use "guarded". And
the facial hair...people always comment on the facial hair. I've
been told I have nice lips and eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I've never been a huge reader until recently. A good friend
gave me a kindle for my birthday and I'm kind of obsessed with it
now. Don't get me wrong, I still buy and LOVE actual books. I could
walk into a book store and stay there for hours simply for the
smell of them alone. I love anything different, experimental,
original ideas. Don't ask me anything about Twilight or...Fifty
Shades of whatever because that's just insulting. I DID get on
board with The Hunger Games, I LOVE everything about it. I like
comedic books...Chelsea Handler and David Sedaris, Jenny Lawson. I
like mysteries, horror. Invisible Monsters is probably my favorite
book. Catcher in the Rye, The Passage, The Help, The Kite Runner,
World War Z, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I'm currently reading
through the Harry Potter series...I know, I'm late, but whatever, I
love it. It doesn't matter, really. If it's well written and I can
get into the story, I'll read it. Definitely looking for
Movies and Music: These are tough ones. SO many. I love them ALL!
I'm a huge movie person. I love going to movies, watching at
home...I have a huge collection. VERY difficult to choose a
favorite movie or genre though I do tend to get more excited over a
good horror movie than a comedy. Julie & Julia may be my
favorite movie. I have seen it more times than I can count. That
kinda ties into my love of food, Paris and Meryl Streep though.
Music...I have VERY eclectic taste. I like pretty much anything
besides hardcore rap and most country.
TV: I love TV and I watch WAY more than I should. Too many things
to name, really. It's usually on the HGTV if nothing else is on. Or
MSNBC. I've gotten pretty heavily into politics lately and Rachel
Maddow is my hero. I like reality competition shows like Top Chef,
Idol, X Factor, ANTM, So You Think You Can Dance feeds my secret
desire to be a hip hop dancer, heh...too many others, I admit.
Happy Endings is probably my new favorite. New Girl, 2 Broke Girls,
Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, Community,
True Blood, Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, Smash, The Walking Dead,
Revenge, Downton Abbey, Once Upon A Time...we could really be here
all day. I find myself watching 30 Rock, Golden Girls, Sex and the
City and Friends on DVD a lot lately.
Food: YOU MUST LOVE SUSHI. Ok, you don't HAVE to but you have to be
willing to go out for sushi with me A LOT. I love Italian...it's
probably my favorite to eat as well as my favorite to cook,
Chinese, Mexican...I could go on and on, really.
The six things I could never do without
My sense of humor
Breathing is pretty cool.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things...and sometimes stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out, in...whatever. Usually not much lately. Again, not really a
big partier or club person though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I struggle with my weight. I'm really working on myself right now.
Eating better, exercise. I intend to join a gym again pretty soon.
I've lost a lot in the past, gained it back...trying to do it again
and keep it off. It's difficult but I'll get there.
I'm also an extremely clean, organized person. Almost OCD...not
I wear my heart and my emotions on my sleeve. I'm a very open
I am, in fact, a homosexual.
You should message me if
If you're astronaut Mike Dexter...or if you want to get to know me
better. If you've made it this far...and I know this is A LOT to
read because I kind of have a tendency to ramble at times,
so...really, you may as well.
Oh, also, I'm definitely not a prude, but let's try to keep it at
least moderately classy with the messages, yeah? If you're looking
for a hookup, no judgement here but I'm not your guy. However,
thanks for showing me that pic of your penis I didn't ask
In all seriousness, I am looking to meet some great people from
anywhere and everywhere for friendship and hopefully find a great
guy to share life with. I'm not opposed to (temporary) long
distance. Limiting myself in finding "Mr. Right" is just depressing
I'm one of those "nice guys" you hear about sometimes, I promise.
