One of the reasons I'm on this site because I'm sick of being alone all the time. But considering half my paycheck currently goes to car payments, I'm kind of better off with what little money I have.
My current goal is to have a girlfriend by the end of the college year. I'm not sure if it's possible, but setting a goal is a good thing, unless it's completely unattainable. I'm about ready to give up on this site. During my time, I've met two girls who were really interested in me, and we scheduled a meeting. The first, over a year and a half ago, failed to mention she had to work that day. The second, two months back, had something come up and had to meet a friend afterwards. Next day, she and the "friend" were together; the circumstances were similar to an event that played out in somewhat the same fashion due to a stupid mistake I made.
But some things I will say:
I'm an honest man. All I have to give is my word; it's not too hard to ask the same. If you make a promise, I'll hold you to keep your end, and I'll fulfill mine. I hate to be given the run-around. I do take most things seriously. I also take loyalty serious.
Talking about loyalty, I am excessively loyal. That is my greatest strength. But I learned the hard way that it's also my greatest weakness. I may wait for something to happen that is very unlikely to happen or may never happen just because I am a die-hard loyal. What I have is loyalty that can't be bought. If you so luckily gain my loyalty, I would probably go round the moons of Nibia, round the Antares Maelstrom, and round Perdition's flames before I give up.
I am very smart; so smart I can be off-putting. Ever since I watched "National Treasure" about ten years ago, my aptitude has been history, and not just what you learn in school. US, world, film, sports, etc--these are a few of the subcategories of history I know.
My original life plans changed when my mother died in December 2012 due to a brain hemorrhage, right before Christmas. Her passing is an event that has marred my life since that day. All I'll say is death is a cold heartless bitch.
I love to sing in general, especially in the car with windows rolled down. Country, rock, metal, [good] pop; doesn't matter. If I like it, it's at top volume.
I am a self-described nerd. I love Doctor Who, The Big Bang Theory, '90s shows/animation, anime, and classic video games on the NES, SNES, PS1, N64, Sega, etc.
There are some movies/shows/books I hate with a passion. They include Twilight (just walk away right now; it's not gonna work. I have no love for Stephanie Meyer's wet dreams made public), Jersey Shore (it's just the world's worst drinking party), Glee (mainstream High School Musical), the Bay-formers series (in fact, almost everything Michael Bay does, though a few exceptions exist), etc. If you like any of these shows/books/movies, find someone else. I know it's a little nitpicky, but I heavily bash all these.
I also love to eat and try new foods. I've eaten food from Japan, Israel, Greece, etc. I find the best way to experience a culture is to try their own cuisine.
As I previously said a few paragraphs ago, I ascribe myself as a member of several fandoms, but my newest and most active fandom I'm in is one that I never even expected to be a fan of: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. I've been a brony for over a year now; the show has helped dull the pain of my mother's sudden death. Besides that, the other fans have a strong sense of camaraderie I've never seen before. They even helped me get over the difficult days after the burial.
Big surprise, but I love most Disney movies. I was privileged to live during the Disney Renaissance and see these now-classic animated movies when Disney deeply cared. I see animation not as a cartoon, but as the Japanese do: another medium to tell a story. It bothers me when I hear/see awful animated movies like Planes, but I digress.
