My self-summary
My favorite thing in the world is discovering an intriguing, largely-forgotten book but close seconds include bad puns, biking through congested traffic, a really good cup of coffee & the feel of a kitchen when a big meal is being prepared.

I like working with my hands and problem-solving. Building things with wood and cooking large meals for small groups of people.

Books occupy the core of my life - I care about them more than most things; frequently I geek out over them & sometimes I can be a snob (gracefully, I hope). I am a bookseller at an awesome bookstore and I am okay with how succinctly this statement summarizes my life.

Generally I find it hard to be as eloquent as I'd like, but I like to think these apply:

"On the quiet side. Somewhat peculiar. A good companion, in a weird sort of way." (Calvin, on Hobbes)

"I have a great weakness for these dry, reserved characters who once or twice an evening come out with a vivid, penetrating remark that shows that there is a volcanic core smoldering away at high pressure underneath." (John Collier)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm doing things I love on a daily basis - selling books, cooking, biking, exploring, building - and doing everything to keep it that way. Striving to expand my surrogate family and make a Home while maintaining a transient lifestyle, if this is indeed possible.

My goals include continuing to genuinely enjoy my everyday routine, entrenching myself further into my community, traveling more, building more cool things, climbing more staircases, making just a little more money without compromising my happiness & forgetting what Mother said about talking to strangers.

The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes? I mastered thoughtfully staring off into space at an early age. Generally I'm caught inspecting my surroundings, making Hm-ing sounds and muttering to myself. Hopefully you find that attractive.

& probably my hair? It's usually in some weird shape.

also, my mum says I have a very distinctive walk.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I appreciate exercises in extreme contrast, disparate elements melted together in ways that don't always make sense but constantly intrigue.

Music that makes me move and sing along involuntarily, despite the fact that I have no talent for either singing or dancing.

Movies that for any reason make me feel they deserve a grandiose emotional response. Also, kung-fu movies, magical realism & musicals.

I start many more books than I will ever finish & have interest in so many more books than I will ever have the chance to start. Stories that look simple on the surface but reveal so much more as you sink in. Tales that make me forget the things that seem fundamental to life. Narratives that encourage me to ignore the time. Characters that seem more familiar than real acquaintances.

I usually want to eat everything, so long as those things don't contain seafood.
The six things I could never do without
my House - being, my housemates who are all amazing

Bicycle - how would I get anywhere? these boots were not made for walking they were made for pedaling.

my Work - I need to have something to do, if I take too long a vacation I start to experience withdrawal symptoms for lack of purpose.

Books - otherwise where would I escape to? what would I talk about?

Power tools - there's just so many things you can do with them!

Over-active imagination - there are just so many things waiting to be thought about & it's good to know my brian is up to the challenge.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What-ifs and insignificant details. The book I've just finished. The book I haven't started yet. Projects. Impossible futures. Solutions. Plots.
On a typical Friday night I am
Making food, playing games, chatting it up and drinking a bit with friends. I work a lot of evenings, but on my nights off I like to cook and read and watch movies and go on late night bike rides in warm weather - always preferable with good company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really wish I had the confidence to dance without being drunk.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 23–30
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You are more extroverted than me, appreciate books, keep active, like to make plans, don't require constant contact, are currently happy with your life, smile easily.

Or you think we could be good for each other regardless.
