My self-summary
A wise man once said, "Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes... that way, when you do judge him... you're a mile away and you've got his fuckin' shoes!"

I love to laugh, hopefully you do too. If you don't, you should probably kick rocks.

I'm scatterbrained, I write very informal and random. This may come across as the ramblings of a mad man.
I also sprinkle a few colorful words in my everyday vocabulary (made evident above), so if that offends you, you've been warned. Here goes nothin'...

I know a little something about the great outdoors. I grew up in a small town in Eastern North Carolina, which is also rural Tobacco country. I enjoyed clear nights where you could step outside and see all the stars, constellations, and catch the occasional meteor shower. In the late Spring to early Fall, you can smell honeysuckle everywhere...

I love and appreciate the smaller things in life. I love hanging out on the porch. I love rocking chairs. I love watching the sun rise and set. I especially love watching bonfires.
I love taking long walks, gives me great clarity. I love the sounds that emanate from stormy nights. I love embracing an occasional cool breeze. I love sipping an ice-cold glass of sweet tea. I love the fact that I still possess all of my senses.
I love a lot of things.

I'm former Army, honorably discharged after eight years of service. I served in both Afghanistan and Iraq, amongst other places. I'm very thankful to still be here. I've witnessed a lot of beautiful, tragic, and extraordinary things, t-shirts and photos included.
I've done a lot of extensive traveling, to say the least. I've been to more countries than I can think of, half of which I can't even fathom spelling. I kinda miss the travel and hustle.
I really miss the people and camaraderie... I had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful and fascinating people from all walks of life. It wasn't always peaches-n-cream, but the people I was surrounded with helped ease a lot of the burden.
Memories can often be bittersweet, but I still cherish them.

Currently, I'm an electrician. I mainly do commercial, residential, and light industrial. I find it kinda boring to talk about, but it's a job I appreciate knowing and having. If you need any free advice, I don't mind helping or steering you in the right direction.

I really dig art... I draw daily, mostly animals and the faces of those that have imprinted deep impressions. I find it extremely therapeutic. I mainly use Faber Castell pencils and any variety of pen. I have tons of sketchbooks and various other art supplies stacked. This stems from the 80's/90's explosion of cartoons, older Disney and Warner Bros. cartoons included, anime, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and a meaty obsession for comic books and the various writers and pencilers who inspired early on. I must also add that when you're from the country, you have to possess a wild, crazy, and vivid imagination if you don't wanna succumb to boredom.

I love music, all genres. When I'm off work and I'm just sitting down, I'm generally reading, drawing, or writing. While I'm doing this, I'm usually listening to music in the background.

Ever have a song trapped in your thoughts? You can't get it out, can you? It's usually the melody that hooks me right in. Everything from Dwight Twilley Band's "Looking For The Magic" to Brenton Wood's "The Oogum Boogum Song" are on daily loop in my head.

Moments of nostalgia seem to always linger about. I'm a bit of a memory horder. My mind is cluttered with mostly useless information that comes in handy on trivia night.
Don't ask me where the hell I left my keys though... takes more than an act of congress to find them sometimes.

As far as religion is concerned, I feel whatever brings you peace through triumph, tragedy, and time is what is best for you.

Without question, I'd say my favorite food is pizza. I also love the simplicity of peanut butter and jelly/jam (grape, strawberry, blackberry, rasberry, elderberry, frankenberry, any -berry) on flat bread served with a big glass of milk to wash it down with. It always hits the spot.
While we're still on food... I love anything cheese, anything cake, and any variety of cheesecake.
"Galactus hungers..."

I wouldn't really call myself a current gamer, but I know the culture well. I grew up having an Atari 2600, I wish I still had one. I had the Super NES and others too, but have strayed from purchasing the newer systems. Nowadays, I just play when with friends or cheer them on while they're battling hordes of the unsightly and the likes of.
I truly miss the old Mario and Donkey Kong days, even the days where my sister would relentlessly kick my ass with Chun-Li. Life before trophies, achievements, red rings of death, ignorant trolls with microphones, and blatant spamming!
Remember playing Oregon Trail?!? Dysentery, anyone?

I can really ramble when it comes to the many passions in my life. Originally, I didn't intend on unloading so much about myself on to a dating site, but I'm not very talkative unless you really know me.
I want you to know who you could potentially be meeting, because this is ME.

If you choose to continue reading, you'll find that I use an insane amount of commas and ellipses...

The first things people usually notice about me
I dunno what people notice about me at first, but here are some hardcore facts about me.

My real name is Will Robinson. I've heard Lost In Space references my whole life. A lot of good-natured Simon & Garfunkel lyrics have also been sung to me.

I'm very close with my small family. I was born on my mother's birthday. Crazy, no? I respect her, my father, and my sister(only sibling) a great deal for helping raise me into the man I am today.
My friends are also very important to me. Through the good and bad times, we've always been there for each other.
I'd say loyalty is pretty high on my totem pole. I'm forever indebted to those who are still in my life.

I get commented on my eyes often. They're hazel. They change colors, depending on what color(s) I'm wearing. My vision is another story, I'm blind as a bat. I have astigmatism in both eyes and I'm near-sighted. I've worn contacts or glasses for over twenty years.

I'm kinda quiet at first. I'm soft spoken with a bit of an accent. When I do talk, I tend to use my hands a lot. I can illustrate most any scenario with them. I can also make some pretty bitchin' shadow puppets.

I'm a bit goofy.

My face is never clean-shaven. I've always got thick stubble or a beard.

I keep my hair real short and close-cropped. It's been that way for a minute now.

I have big(wide) feet. I wear a size 14 and I'm generally wearing boots. They're not Shaq-size, but they're not Muggsy Bogues-size either.

I'm a natural born runner, I also tend to walk really fast... I can't help it... kinda like Forrest Gump, haulin' ass everywhere I go.

I'm very genuine, what you see is what you get. I enjoy helping others and showing kindness and respect to ALL. I was raised to treat others the way that I want to be treated, regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, nationality, wealth, etc.
The late Rodney King put it best, "Can't we all just get along?!?"

The six things I could never do without
Truthfully, I can go without all of the material items listed. I have gone without them before and I could do it all again. I'm listing seven. Why??! I'm a superstitious fool.

1. Family/friends. If you're a friend of mine, you're FAMILY.

2. Art/Art Supplies, 'nuff said.

3. Other forms of entertainment: Music, movies, literature, various hobbies, internet, yada yada yada... this covers a lot.

4. A sense of humor. Everybody deserves a good laugh now and again. We all have bad days, and you need it after rolling with all those punches.

5. Good advice... I'm not Superman, shared wisdom has saved my ass on more than one occasion. It keeps you humble, because none of us know everything.

6. Transportation! Gotta get from A to B!

7. My memories! Where would I be without them? Lost!!!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"To sleep, perchance to dream..."

I have moments where I wish I could ride off and disappear into the sunset. I often romanticize the notion.

When I clean a load of clothes, I always find myself missing a sock or two. I double-check the washing machine and dryer, then scratch my head in bewilderment when I can't find them. I think there's some hidden dimension where everybody's lost socks are laying around. I believe it's best hidden, you know it stinks.

I have never been to Japan, but I one day plan to go. I wanna get lost in Tokyo and fully absorb it's insanity. I also want to visit Aokigahara, otherwise known as the Sea of Trees and Suicide Forest. Kinda weird place to visit, but after reading about it a few years ago, I wanna go and see just how nuts the place truly is.

Other destinations I've never been to, but would like to venture:
Australia, New Zealand, Vancouver(B.C.), Spain, Portugal, and The Pacific Northwest, specifically Oregon(Voodoo Donuts is a bonus) and Washington.

While we're on travel, I'm sick of driving... I wish I had the power to teleport anywhere I wanted to... ANYWHERE... I'd really love for there to be black smoke trails left behind from the sheer awesomness of said power. Cartoon letters expressing it would be even more awesome... "BAMF" or "POOF" would do...

Bruce Campbell should write more... "If Chins Could Kill: Confessions Of A B Movie Actor" is one of my favorite books ever read, seriously. It's not "Othello" but it's very entertaining.

I've always had a slightly unhealthy obsession with ghost stories, UFO sightings, and urban legends. I devour the unexplained and what most people scoff off as bullshit. I don't believe in all of it, but I enjoy thinking about what I can't fully rule out as nonexistent.
When you get the chance, listen to Coast To Coast AM with George Noory on the radio or online, especially on Friday Night Open Lines. Look up some of the archives, truly captivating stories exchanged. They cover what's mentioned above, cryptids, string theory, natural disasters, conspiracy theories, anything and everything. Michio Kaku is a regular guest... Trust me, it's always interesting.

Websites I find myself glued to at times: Wikipedia, The Hype Machine Music Blog, Blalock's Indie Rock Playlist, Twitch Film News, WTF Podcast with Marc Maron, AICN Blog, Joblo movie news, anything associated with the fantastic, and tons of art blogs and galleries...
On a typical Friday night I am
On a porch somewhere... I dunno, maybe out gallivanting with my closest friends or seeing my family. Truth be told, "typical" doesn't fit into my vocabulary.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Story #1
I'm enrolled in the VA and have been receiving treatment and counseling for PTSD, chronic insomnia, high blood pressure(skinny and eat right, go figure) and periods of depression.
PTSD can be extremely crippling, both mentally and physically. You feel like you're weak and the anxiety is unbearable. It's almost impossible to relax. The best words I could find to describe it, infinite intensity.
I never thought something so wretched would wreak havoc on me. When I was younger, I thought I was invincible. That thought has faded, buried deep beneath memories that have humbled me.
When the symptoms of PTSD started to really set in, I was in a state of avoidance. How could this happen to me? I was scared that by asking for help that the people I cared about would think I was crazy. I thought that they'd ostracize me.
After finally seeking help, I've found it to be the exact opposite. I'm able to open up more now and it's been amazing to get it out. I've got an amazing support channel and I've found that there are a lot of other people who battle these same demons daily.
You may be wrestling with it now, from the wars abroad or the battles at home or elsewhere. You're not crazy, you've just experienced some things that you can't quite comprehend. You're not alone.
If you need a vent, spill away.

Story #2
I always wanted a pet Mogwai. I finally found the closest thing to it...
I have a chubby, furry, black gremlin named Jasper. I picked him up about seven years ago from an animal shelter, and it's been one hell of a journey ever since.
Jasper eats a lot... sleeps a lot... whines a lot... uses a lot of kitty litter... hates taking baths... loves scratching furniture... knocks a lot of shit over... Ok, so he can be a real jerk sometimes. The fact remains, he's my jerk and I love him very dearly. I seriously despised cats before I got him. Now, I love cats just as much as I love dogs.

Story #3
My family would sometimes take trips to the beach in the summer. When I was growing up, the NC coast had the best piers out there. They had motels attatched to most and the one(Triple S, formerly of Atlantic Beach) we stayed at was right along the water.
One morning, I woke up earlier than everyone else and ran out to the waves. I was by myself, but I had my trusty float in tow. I was paddling out trying to catch a nice wave in, unaware that the current was guiding me out.
Before I knew it, I could barely make out the shoreline. I panicked when I got off the float. My feet didn't grace the bottom. I felt the current's tug and it scared the hell out of me! I swam sideways as hard as I could. All I could think about was Jaws and potentially never seeing my family again. It took a while, but I made it back. I jumped time to get indoors. I didn't tell my folks for fear of a severe tongue lashing and ass whooping.
Needless to say, I never saw the float again. I told them it tore against the seashells, better than a giant shark engulfing it along with me.

I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–40
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends
You should message me if
I hope that my profile detoxifies your thoughts of all the poisonous redundancies that pollute online dating...
I know I'm not going to attract everyone, but if you're looking for friendship first, here I am.
Personal chemistry and time will decide what fate has in store. If you can handle that, be my guest. The rest is up to the eye of the beholder.

~Also~

If you're a fan of Electric Light Orchestra. Seriously, most underrated band ever.... "10538 Overture" and "Turn To Stone" are two of my favorite jams ever.The same can be said for Ennio Morricone. Ever heard "Il Giardino delle Delizie?" Todd Rundgren's "I Saw The Light" and King Harvest's "Dancing In The Moonlight" also light up my life.

If you're passionate about drawing, storytelling, or some other form of creativity.
Some rotten person flagged me for sharing some of my drawings in my pictures on here. Has this happened to anyone else before? I couldn't believe it. If you wanna share doodles/drawings, ask for my email.

If you appreciate stargazing.

If you value your dreams, literally and figuratively.

If 42 means something to you beyond the excellent Jackie Robinson biopic.

You're Gina Torres... kidding, but I do think she's quite dreamy.

If you embrace memories and nostalgia. I'm often lost in thought. This doesn't mean that I can't afford enough sense to pay attention.

If you think synchronicity is legit. It's much more than just a wink from the cosmos.

I have the application for this site, I may appear online even when I'm not. An advance apology, if I don't reply swiftly enough.

That is all...
