Newly re-emerged in the PNW... land of light and water...and pine and fir. Still settling in, steadying my legs here.
basic synopsis: ex-farmboy, ex-military, still a lefty liberal, honest, genuine, loyal, outdoorsy, occasionally bookish, introverted, charming when it counts, musician, indie, folkish, not a hunter, not a follower of any televised sports program, not a follower of televised much really,.. ummm... not a believer in gettin to know a person via a profile... yet here we all are.
the key take away here is that I am a nice guy... with a dark streak? sure.. who doesn't have one. but it doesn't consume me. I have an adventurous heart and my personality type is slightly reserved nerdy artsy type. I am mostly polite, mostly genuine. Earnest...or at least attempting it daily. I will ham it up and tell wild, sometimes profane stories with close friends but around acquaintances, coworkers, family I turn a bit formal, polite, reserved. I like the idea of deliberate living, but I wouldn't lecture someone for spending the afternoon on a couch in a marathon netflix binge. What I'm looking for here I suppose is chemistry. I'm beyond the point of being terribly casual about anything. I want things that matter, that have longevity, I want things that have a pithy weight of importance to them. I'm not limiting this to romantic type relationships either... A good platonic friend is itself a romantic ideal. I don't know... I'm not for everyone. In fact it appears to be a very select few. I'm no catch. Just a fella trying to make a go of it. I am being a bit long-winded in an attempt to make this digital text/photo based version of myself somewhat accurately representative of the analog individual you would actually be meeting.
historical favorites: Oryx and Crake, Blindness, Galápagos, The Road, Almost Heaven, For Whom The Bell Tolls, Martian Chronicles...etc
music: indie, folkish, very important late night sorta soundscapes.
movies: log into netflix, browse the indie films, I've seen all of those (just about it seems) and liked 80%, oh and documentaries.
food: all good.
The questions are ridiculous and if you give any credibility to the match system on this site then we're probably not a match.
OkCupids Math is Wrong
(borrowed that link from someone else's page.)
I think Myers-Briggs is bullshit, but I see it referenced on here quite a bit... so, I'm an intj. But let's not confine each other into neat little boxes quite yet eh...?
it might be true that dating apps make me feel a little cynical... and I'm sorta terrible at okcupid.
people on sites like this have a tendency to classify and categorize every aspect of their personality. I feel this is a rather limiting practice, as it makes everyone appear so neat, so black and white, so clean and one dimensional. We are all complicated many layered onions... let's revel in that even if that means occasionally being shocked or surprised by our own feelings/opinions/thoughts/actions. I like the duality of things. You're an istj who sings karaoke and sky dives..? Damn right. That's what I'm lookin for.
"Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others." - Groucho
also, quirky is a grossly undervalued trait in a mate.
finally: don't be evil.
