"Don't get strung out by the way I look. Don't judge a book by its cover."
Let's just say I'm an acquired taste.
Getting this out of the way: I'm not the best looking guy in the world. Some of you that may be looking at this profile might be thinking that. Some of you might think that I'm the ugliest thing you've ever seen. Think whatever you like to think. I was raised to like and appreciate people for who they are. I'll admit guilt, there are some elements where I do judge on looks but that goes with the laws of attraction. Overall though, I feel that the emotional and intellectual aspect should play more of a bigger role than physicality.
"Surprise, shock, attack, understate, or overstate, but whatever you do, avoid the twin cardinal sins of being either boring or predictable."
This is who I am: intelligent, funny, eccentric (or "weird" for you common folks), musical. Music is my # 1 thing in life. It's been there since I came out of the womb and it's part of what I do for a career. Like with any other human being, I do have my share of strong suits and flaws. At times, I'm not the easiest person to deal with but I do have my side of compassion, inner beauty, humour and gentleness. I'm a complex beast at best, as you'll find out. It's what makes me who I am.
Pretentious or arrogant? Of course, I can be. Then again, I think we all have a dash of that sort of thing.
That being said, I'd like to think I'm a person worth knowing. Or at least cool enough to know. I just hope that the person is the same in return. It's very hard to find people who are just what they are in real life as they are on this wonder known as okstupid. Or perhaps okinsipid? Maybe I made up the okinsipid part but cheers anyway!
The deal: Recently, I was in a 2 1/2 years on and off relationship. It was a pretty intense one. Craziness, distrust, deceit were the call of the day. There were faults on both ends and ended up with a lot of repercussion. Sounds like a movie, doesn't it? That being said, I'm not broken from it. I don't need fixing nor do I want help from anyone to get over it. As you get older, you have 2 choices: Either onward and upward or wallow in the cesspool of one's pity and just watch yourself drown. So, I'm helping myself to be a better person and to become the person I can be. For the time being, I'm more so interested in getting to know people and not rushing into things. Stopping to smell the roses, take the back roads and have fun with it.
If I happen to meet people along the way who wants an awesome friend, awesome!
