I am a female-to-male transgender. If that turns you off, that's fine, to each their own, but don't message me if it's not something you can deal with, please. I am being up-front with you because I don't want to get my feelings hurt over this technicality.
I am usually the type who moves from one long-term committed relationship to another; however, I found myself single just before fall semester started and I find myself sitting alone in my apartment more often than I would like. I have refused to use online dating sites in the past because fate has, or had at this point, this quirky habit of having me bump into my next partner shortly after the previous one exits but alas that has not happened this time. So I finally broke down and am giving this a try.
I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Criminal Justice, with Honors, with an additional major in psychology, and with the Honors College.
Currently I have a two part-time jobs with the University: one as an office assistant and the other as a maintenance worker. I love staying organized, completing paperwork, getting dirty, and fixing things. What a conundrum am I.
I enjoy watching movies- Netflix is kind of a bad habit of mine. I like pretty much every genre, including horror movies, but I am by no means a movie buff. There are a lot of movies I haven't seen yet and I never know who acted in what or who directed what.
I don't play video games often because I fear they would distract me from the more important things in life but currently I am hopelessly addicted to an oldie but goodie: Champions of Norrath. You win extra points if you've heard of this game (for the PS2 which I'm still a proud owner of).
I enjoy reading too. I read Twilight before it was a big deal and hated the authors writing style (I'm bad with names- all I can think is that her name is Stephanie Something) but she had some cool ideas. Key word being some. I hate how there's an underlying message of 'abuse is okay if you're in love'.
I don't watch the news or read the paper-more bad habits I suppose- and don't care much about politics.
I love music but don't listen to the radio because I don't have a car (shameful but hey, top surgery was more important and I am not rich). I don't listen to the radio at home because all the advertisements are annoying. So I glean music I like from those around me: friends, siblings, ex-girlfriends, etc.
I am not athletic at all; however, I enjoy being active. I love taking long walks, swimming, and hiking. I also love to long board but am not the most graceful at it. I used to play softball back when life was simpler and I was a lesbian but was no good at it. I find catch rather relaxing though. Haha I may or may not have intended that to be sexual. You decide ;)
I am generally a very neat person but there are certain spots in my apartment that have succumbed to meaningless haphazard piles of I don't even know what anymore. If you are not a neat person I totally respect that because I admit at times I'm not either; however, just because I can handle messy does in no way mean that I will tolerate dirty. My kitchen and bathroom are spotless and spotless they will stay.
I enjoy talking to people- not mindless chatting but having actual deep conversations where you learn about the other person.
I drink several nights a week but more for that feel-good buzz and the nice fluffy feeling in my head before bed than to get seriously drunk. I like wine but am developing a taste for beer slowly but surely. If you have any recommendations I would love to hear them :) I'm always up for trying new things. Again with the sexual undertones.
As far as smoking goes I had a habit of smoking a cigarette whenever I finish an especially difficult homework assignment back when I was a college student and I usually smoked one on Friday or Saturday night when I was drinking. So I smoked roughly 2-3 a week. I had to stop for several months when top surgery happened but have resumed the habit. Peer pressure is a bitch. There is just something about smoking with a group of friends on my balcony that I find so damned appealing.
Winter is actually my favorite season because I love holiday lights and the cold crisp weather is so invigorating. Snowfall at night makes the world seem like a serene place for the moment.
I am a rather devoted person when it comes to my family and friends. I enjoy taking care of people and am a naturally protective person. This annoys some people and flatters others.
I enjoy cooking but am in no way a culinary genius. I just like cooking for myself versus take-out. I am also not a health-nut, fair warning. If you're a health nut I find that impressive and I respect that but it's not going to stop me from eating the same foods I've always eaten. In college I lived on frozen pizza, macncheese, rice, and chicken. Sadly my diet has not improved much.
I am not a very snazzy dresser: I wear skinny jeans, a v-neck tee, hoodie, and skate shoes every day when I'm not in my work uniform. Honestly my street clothes are so monotonous that some people have asked me whether I changed my clothes this week. (I shower and change everyday. I shave every two days. I'm very self conscious about being smelly although smelling great is one of the typical complements I receive). I also wear thick geeky glasses. Are you turned off yet? I'm honestly impressed you made it this far.
Wow I actually ran out of things to say. Actually that just made me feel like I was on a date and talking waaaaaaay too much about myself. I would rather hear people's stories than tell my own. I'm more of an observer than an actor.
