My self-summary
Ahoy hoy
My name is Chris, but most call me Chopper, or Squid (old childhood nickname, lame story).
My girlfriend, Melody, and I are new to the city and looking to make cool new friends to play with, to meet couples to do activities with and basically just live life to the fullest and have a blast. We are a flirtatious, fun loving couple who are rather laid back yet have a penchant for the adventurous, we are down for anything, and sometimes dangerously open-minded (but not foolhardy or reckless by any means).

Bottom line-
If you're a girl, Melody is looking to make some girlfriends she can play with, hangout with, have girls nights out, get to know, and share our time and fun with.
If you're a guy, I'd love to chill, or go out exploring this city, explore eachother's interests, or just see whatever happens in this mad life.
If you're a couple, we'd love to double date, or just hangout or whatever. lets chat.
We look forward to meeting you.
What I’m doing with my life
Life, what life? heh :P

I'm currently Bar Tending at Kavasutra Kava bar.

I traveled the country a lot as a kid, and now most local everyday life bores me. So I am always finding ways to keep myself amused.

My mind does not stop, so I write in my free time, mostly fiction, and aspire to be novelist someday. For now it's just a hobby :)
Wanna read some cool stuff? Just ask.

"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing." --Benjamin Franklin.
I’m really good at
I'm good at climbing trees, but that's practically a prerequisite for boys, so... doesn't really count.
Although, ROCK CLIMBING-- I think that counts! I had the chance to do it once in beautiful Tennessee, was one of the greatest experiences I've had, and I hunger to do it again.

I tend to try to stay fit. I enjoy a refreshing swim whenever I can find proper bodies of water. On Wednesdays I used to fence (Rapier and dagger) with a medieval/renaissance group, and now I am looking to find a new group/place. I suck at tennis, doesn't stop me from attempting the dammed sport though. And I like running, it's the best way to end up feeling like shit while equally feeling amazing.

I love delving into books/audiobooks and exploring the imaginations of others, as well as my own.
I generally excel at most anything creative.
Writing is the chosen tap for my imagination, pouring my mind juice out onto absorptive materials. Sometimes I draw, or build stuff (was a Lego kid growing up, and kinda still am. Could probably have been an engineer if I didn't have a love/hate relationship with math)
I've got a ton of useless skills, like being really good at the Six degrees [of Kevin Bacon] game (linking actors together via movies and other actors they've worked with).
I'm also really good at feinting skill in these following interests:
video games
board games
The first things people usually notice about me
My presence?
Idk, you tell me

I love quaint/sad movies like UP, The Terminal, Stranger than Fiction, Grand Budapest Hotel, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Brazil;
I'm a sucker for good noir/neo-noir stuff, like Chinatown, Brick, and Lucky Number Sleven;
I pretty much love everything John Carpenter touches, like Christine, The Thing, and They Live;
I also like Once upon a Time in the West, For a Few Dollars More, and other westerns by Sergio Leone;
and I adore old science fiction films like Doctor X and Forbidden Planet, the classics like Tron, Alien, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, and the newer scifi stuff like Moon, The Matrix, and Primer;
also great is Edgar Wright's Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy: Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End;
I go see all of the Marvel stuff, and await DC's upcoming films and their eventual/inevitable mistake at attempting to compete;
Guillermo Del Toro movies are pretty alright; I love John Carpenter's movies, and you can't beat the entertainment of a good Quentin Tarantino film;
and I even love well made anime films like Spirited Away, From up on Poppy Hill, Akira, and Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honnêamise;

I love to cook! Anything, from Miso soup, to epic salads and amazing sauteed spinach, to coal fired skirt-steaks, to killer breakfast dishes, to all kinds of seafood, like Mahi in scampi sauce with a spicy pineapple salsa on top, and more.
And when I am not cooking I enjoy going out to cool places with people.
Sushi on occasion is great, and am always in the mood for a Philly Cheesesteak Sub. I've got a strange addiction for good Lemonade and fancy water (like blk water).
I drink a lot of coffee, but that's hard to help when you live in a house where there is always a fresh pot brewed (seriously, my dad must have pure coffee in his veins)
The six things I could never do without
The six sides of a die?
Nah, real talk
2-My friends and family.
5-Something to write on.
6-A good book to read.

my current "Rule 32: Enjoy the little things" six things=
1-Staring into another living being's eyes and seeing life look back into yours
2-The smell of the ET ride and smelling it in other places triggering nostalgia.
3-Water, and the subtle differences in its taste from different brands/sources
4-The perfect temperature under the sheets in the morning that makes you never want to get out of bed
5-The relaxing bliss of sitting alone and building with legos, models, words on paper, or other similar creative projects
6-The exhilarating focus of anticipating your fencing opponent's next move while also searching for the opening to thrust your rapier into them
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How many licks DOES it take to get to the center?

Generally I am considering writing projects that I have yet to finish,
as well as spacing out about dumb shit,
Philosophy--The ethics of everyday decisions, Concepts of Time and reality, are we all just characters in some book? Hmmm.... If so, I don't think the Author likes me very much, and the world sucks because conflict and drama are needed in any story (not so crazy actually if you read about fictionalism), And do we make choices or is the Author choosing for us, in the sentence, "Jack chose to open the first door," did Jack make the choice, or did I when I wrote he did? Or is everything some weird form of Hard-Determinism where your options are a dice roll and you just sort of luck (or bad luck) your way through life?
Ok, enough Philosophy
I also spend time thinking about whatever it is I have forgot, fun road trips I could take, if I watered my banzai or not yesterday,
oh and dames, of course!
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing the same thing I do every night, trying to take over the world!

Abusing Amazon Prime?
Probably working. Looking forward to freetime to indulge in adventures and debauchery ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know, I'm not too private. Ask me anything. I am pretty open and honest about most everything, but uhhh, here's some close-to-private stuff I guess:

My three biggest fears are: Nano-technology, centipedes, and living/dying alone.

My favorite movies tend to be the sad ones.

I flirt with everybody, men, women, other dimensional ancient ones. If you've got it going on, I don't discriminate.

I have a devilishly perverse mind, with a penchant for all things both kink and sensual. Never know if I'm going to tie you up with your own garments and 'punish' you in some way, or just give you a full body massage and nibble on your lobes while whispering all sorts of things in your ear. Or both. lol
Whatever is fun for you, because I believe sex should be fun.
You should message me if
If you'd like to share in an adventure;
If you are a huge dork and are looking for fellow dorks;
If you like dinner with friends or are a couple and want to double date;
If you are bi, pan, flexible, open-minded, and/or otherwise like guys AND girls;
If you want to hangout with a cool couple and, who knows, see what happens

and if you want to talk about whatever at all-- Say hi, ask a question--ask me anything, tell me I am a dweeb, make a random statement about my page??? idk, I'm just here to chat (something people on here seem to be allergic to?)
I'd like to get to know if I would actually like to get to know you, ya know? (Holy convoluted sentence Batman).

P.S. - This site seems to have no concept of distance. If you are totally awesome and live nowhere near me... well... You suck! but don't let it discourage you :)
