Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I suppose I would characterize myself as some sort of deviant
I say deviant because I have always felt just a little out of
kilter with the rest of humanity for all that I am essentially
motivated by the same desires as anyone else. I find that I
empathize most strongly with those who have experienced some unique
personal challenge or trauma. I have a certain disdain for social
constructions such as dress codes, gender roles, common conceptions
of an individual's beauty or lack thereof and the like. Needless to
say, if you are an individual who aspires to 'normality' I am
probably not the gentleman for you :)
I say intellectual not so much because I imagine myself to be
particularly erudite but because I try to analyze, understand, and
evaluate anything and everything. Possibly as a form of escapism on
I like to collect moments of beauty, cuteness, whimsy, or
poignancy. For example: One time as I was walking in a park, I
passed three children who appeared very much to be siblings. The
first one, a strapping young gentleman of perhaps some 8 years ran
right on by me. The second, a young lady of nearly the same age,
was making some odd bouncing jumps. She explained as if the
question were plainly obvious "I am NOT skipping. Or jumping. I am
PRANCING." As she passed by, the third, a young lady of maybe 4
years waddled as fast she could in the rear, pleading "Walk,
I've got a big soft heart that gets bruised pretty regularly.
Which...one gets used to. I generally feel better about myself (and
life in general) when I feel like I've had a positive affect on
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Studying to become a nurse. Looking for a few more fellow deviants
who have not been beat down. And who maybe have a bit of time to
spare. Trying to maintain sanity, life, and liberty in a world
filled with insane, ignorant, emotionally unstable people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really haven't the faintest idea. And I think I prefer it that
way. I think people are different enough to fixate upon any number
of bizarre characteristics.
Some possibilities: Oddly inflected speech, vocabulary, thinning
scalp (Ahem: I'm BALDING, damn it), my second pair of arms...

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Love. Or more particularly at the moment, loneliness :(
- Strategies for assorted goals
- People. Please note: I'm endlessly fascinated as to how people
see themselves and the world. This results in me looking at and
reading a lot of profiles. And returning to read again. This does
NOT mean that I'm stalking you. Or even interested in a romantic
- Sex. Hey there, I'm a guy (or perhaps I should say human) :) It's
not the entire focus of my existence and no, I am NOT interested in
some sort of one-night stand or casual encounter; but to deny this
would be dishonest.
- Schemes for drawing laughter out of my young niece and
- The things nobody is talking about
- Just about everything else, given sufficient time
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Roleplaying. I have a standing gaming night / group potluck
arrangement with a number of friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

That depends entirely upon audience. To you, fair reader, I admit

some bizarre scheme of an adventure in mind and need experimental
subjects; or are willing to subject yourself to my own.
