In very short form, I'm an opera singer who is trying to find his way in a world filled with less-than-fantastic people. Prove me wrong! Open for chat, dates, and fooling around.
In a bit more detail, I have three degrees in music, have played piano since I was 4, and I'm a countertenor. If you don't know what that is, I'm more than happy to talk about it until your eyes glaze over from boredom. :-)
My ideal career trajectory would involve touring/singing with various opera companies, concert venues, and chamber groups for no less than 10, no more than 20 years, and then relaxing into a faculty position at well-funded (for the students, not for my paycheck) university, teaching voice, theory, music history, pedagogy, whatever. I also have some interest in being a professional vocal coach, but...I'm not sure my piano skills are up to par for that.
I'm vaguely familiar with German, Italian and French, and I'm learning Mandarin. I was learning it for my ex, but that isn't the case anymore - now it's for me. (As it should be...)
So, now that I've mentioned my ex... The man I thought I would spend my life with told me at the end of the summer that he had come to terms with the fact that he wasn't actually in love with me. It sucks, yes, but it was the only decent thing for him to do. He knew I would be hurt, but he also ended it the moment he realized the truth, so as not to hurt me any more than was inevitable. All in all, he's a good human being, and that fact alone set up a scenario in which I will be able to heal with relative ease. I'm emotionally hesitant now, because of being so sure of that relationship, but I'm not broken, so don't be afraid!
Am I looking for love? Yes.
Do I have an IMMENSE amount of love to share? Yes.
Do I think I'll fine "the one" through a website? Who the hell knows?
Do I think that it's possible? Yes.
Am I open to just having a good time? Sure thing.
