Peter Parker Seeks Gwen Stacy for amazing, spectacular adventures; inquire within.
If you still don't understand, then please watch the following youtube link and understand that I consider it one of the most adorable things I've ever seen...
Not terrified yet? Okay cool. Let's move on to about me. Because I don't think you are here looking at my profile to learn more about you. At least I hope not. Unless your into that whole introspective life experiences thing. Anyway...
Who am I?
Also deathly afraid of owls. Anything that regularly kills bats and travel in groups known as parliaments are scary.
I'm not the kind of geek who can only talk about geeky things, but being a geek is a deep part of who I am, and if you aren't interested in at least some part of geek culture, Movies, television, music, comics, ANYTHING that can be called geeky really, then I don't think we'll be compatible for dating. I've dated girls with zero geekdom in it and quite honestly it leads to having nothing to talk about and I really do love to talk.
I'm a writer, and as such I try to consume as many forms of entertainment as I can to analyze in my head. Television, movies, books, comics, video games, board games, theater. Storytelling is deeply involved in all of them and as such I'm also deeply involved in them.
I watch a ridiculous amount of TV and movies; Netflix is kind of a dream. I adore comics and read them frequently. Here's the thing about that though. I'm trying to find someone who is either interested in comics, reads comics, or is willing to try reading comics. I don't expect said woman to love them, but to at least hold an open mind about them is an expectation. If you believe comics are just for kids, move alone.
I don't feel any physical attraction to men(though I do appreciate the male form and often will comment on the particularly attractive ones), but that doesn't mean men and women attracted to their own gender deserve any less respect. And just because you weren't born here(or as who you are now) doesn't mean you are in any way less of a human being. I'm also a feminist, frequently finding the lack of women in the various media in anything but the standard stereotypical roles kind of revolting. I am an equalist or Humanist. I believe every single person deserves the same rights. Also super liberal(if that somehow wasn't clear).
I get along with all walks of life so we will likely, easily, be able to be friends. But when I'm looking for something more, like I am now, there are certain things I'm not looking for. Oh and if you've read this far, I suppose an explanation on the whole Gwen Stacy/Peter Parker portion might be in order.
To me, the one great love of Peter Parker's life was Gwen Stacy. There have been many other love interests but Gwen had the most impact on Peter's life. She was a character that was Peter's intellectual equal, and at the same time had her own interests and desires. She was more of a compliment to Peter than a mirror and so that kind of speaks to what I'm looking for. Someone who is an equal but a copy. Someone unique, awesome, and mind blowing.
And the fact that Gwen died is purely incidental and not at all related to what I'm looking for.
I guess I should also mention that I'm not, as the kids would say, all of my shit together. I mean, I'm moving the pieces into place so that by years end I'm completely solid, but medical events and life events have drained the coffers and left me in a place of climbing to stability. This isn't me looking for a handout or sympathy. I am, however, asking for some compassion to look past this and to know that I am actively attempting to fix the problems that have befallen me, rather than be content to misery. If that, somehow, isn't good enough for you then you definitely aren't what I'm looking for. If you are okay with those facts, then we should definitely talk. I'd rather be honest with you up front that this exists that wait until after we've invested time and effort into one another and discovered that it's a deal breaker for you.
