Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Seth.
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 in any way over this
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. In other words I'm an
over-achiever. That's the most you'll ever here me brag about
l currently work at Kroger as an ACSM. I do enjoy the job but it
can be stressful. I love helping people and as an assistant
customer service manager I have a lot of leeway in making an upset
customer happy. But when we get slammed and you have upset customer
after upset customer...it's sometimes hard to keep smiling.
I have an almost unhealthy love for Netflix of which I am mildly
ashamed. 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
Every once in awhile I get really invested in a video game but
honestly that hasn't happened in a couple years. RPGs have always
been my thing when this occurs. Don't co-op with me though because
I enjoy reading too. If reading were my religion, Stephen King and
Dean Koontz would be my Gods.
I love music but am bad at remembering the people behind it-
musicians, composers, etc. I listen primarily to punk and heavy
metal type stuff. My favorite bands will forever be AFI and My
I am not athletic at all; however, I enjoy being active. I love
jogging, 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 would really love to start swimming again as a
I am generally a very neat person but there were always certain
spots in my former apartments that 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. Bleach is my best friend. I enjoy
vacuuming more than is healthy.
I enjoy talking to people- not mindless chatting but having actual
deep conversations where you learn about the other person.
As far as smoking goes...I should quit. I went from a social smoker
to a couple a week to every other day to one a day and now I'm up
to three a day- I smoke on every break at work so people avoid me.
I have a bit of social anxiety so when the store is packed I really
need some alone time sprinkled in.
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 a 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
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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well I graduated from MSU in May of 2013. I'm the proud owner of
what is feeling like a useless B.A. in Criminal Justice. My ideal
job was to be a cop but being an out trans man makes that goal seem
more and more like a dream. Really I just want to help people in
their darkest moments so I am hoping that drive will be satisfied
when I return to school and finish a paramedic or R.N. program.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm not really good at much. People think I'm really smart because
I had a high GPA but that is only because I really pushed myself to
give it my all. It meant a lot of sleepless nights and walking a
tightrope of emotions but I did it, damn it. Slight masochist I
guess. I work well under pressure too. I've written research papers
in 12hrs that professors wanted to send me to grad school for
because they were that impressed. I guess that might mean I'm good
at writing but I don't think so.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My fauxhawk no matter what color it is- brown, black, or red.
Update: I actually shaved my beloved hair off due to the fact that
not having to do my hair every morning meant an extra half hour of
sleep. Yay two jobs! Now that my hours have been reduced to the
standard 40/wk I've begun to slowly (oh so agonizingly slowly) grow
it back out. (Yes I do regret the decision to shave it off)
The tattoos on my forearms.
My ear piercings.
My green eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Loved the Hunger Games books.
I loved the Harry Potter books- the movies were okay.
I love anything written by Stephen King or Dean Koontz.
I love the following TV shows: Bones, Firefly, Rescue Me (don't
judge me), CSI (before Grissom left), the Walking Dead, Saving
Grace, and House.
As far as music goes I love alternative rock. Some of my favorite
bands are: My Chemical Romance, AFI, Falling in Reverse and 30
Seconds to Mars. I also enjoy classical music.
My favorite movie genres are dramas and thrillers but honestly I
like a bit of everything. I don't really have favorites. Two movies
I watch again and again are V for Vendetta and Love Actually.
As far as food goes I eat pretty much anything. I love Indian food,
Thai food, Sushi, and Chinese food (granted what I have been
exposed to are the Americanized versions of these). I used to love
meat but for various reasons I stopped eating much of it. I prefer
coke over pepsi but I love mountain dew. (Someone once messaged me
because of that last statement) I also love slurpees whether it's
90 degrees out or -9 degrees out.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) I-Pod. I went without it for about 35 days once and it was
2) cell phone- I lived a month abroad without one and it wasn't as
bad as I thought it would be although I did miss texting more than
I care to admit.
3) laptop- my laptop is named Giles after the librarian in Buffy
the Vampire Slayer because he's awesome like that. The thought of
eventually needing to buy a newer model is very depressing.
4) pets- I had to find my ferret and three rats new homes before
leaving the States (I had hoped I wouldn't be returning for a long
time but plans are only plans after all) and I'm losing my mind
without them :( Update: my fuzzbutt has been returned to me! My
rats were put to sleep shortly after I returned to the States. They
were in declining health when I left and when I got back...it was
past due. Fucking cancer.
5) companionship although it's not as important as it used to be. I
don't know why. Hopefully I'm becoming more comfortable with
6) a pocket knife. I have a small collection of knives which sounds
way creepier than it is IRL. I'm always carrying one for protection
and just because you never know when it will come in handy- to open
a box, cut that string that's hanging from your shirt sleeve, etc.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future. The job I will have. Where in the world I will travel
throughout my life and where I will decide to settle down. Will I
commit to someone enough to want to have a family with them? Oddly
enough I also mull over my past relationships a lot, honing in on
what lessons I learned from them so that in my next relationship I
can be an even better lover.
And on a less serious note what tattoo I should get next ;)
(although I do take my tattoos very seriously)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On a Friday night I am either at a party with some close friends or
chilling at my apartment watching movies. Hopefully it's with
someone who I can wrap an arm around.
Update: I am no longer in college and it's been a long time since
my work schedule adhered to a M-F kind of schedule. But if I have
an evening off and the following morning off I will probably
partake in some libations with the good company of some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Haha I'll tell you anything but I'm going to make you ask ;)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You find me interesting, if you want to have deep, intense
conversations about ANYTHING, if you want to hang out, long board,
watch movies, drink, or do any combination of the above. I'm up for
pretty much anything. I just got out of a pretty serious
relationship so I'm not really looking to date right now. I might
be up for something casual. I guess we'll just see what
Also, if you cannot think of me as male please don't message me.
