Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am by no means your average guy. I don't believe in gender
stereotypes, and have no interest in hypermasculinity or fitting in
with most men.
I don't really identify as straight, though I have no romantic
interest in men. I prefer to think of myself as queer or pansexual
in theory at least. I prefer women who have some connection with a
queer identity, whether bisexual, pansexual, or the many in
I play guitar and sing, do karaoke with friends, am active in the
local bdsm scene, am crafty/handy/creative/artistic, would like to
get more involved in volunteering, gardening, and many other things
on my ever growing to-do list.
I would love some companionship while crossing some of those things
From childhood's hour I have not been As others were; I have not
seen As others saw; I could not bring My passions from a common
spring. From the same source I have not taken My sorrow; I could
not awaken My heart to joy at the same tone; And all I loved, I
loved alone. Then—in my childhood, in the dawn Of a most stormy
life—was drawn From every depth of good and ill The mystery which
binds me still: From the torrent or the fountain, From the red
cliff or the mountain, From the sun that round me rolled In its
autumn tint of gold, From the lightning in the sky As it passed my
flying by, From the thunder and the storm, And the cloud that took
the form (When the rest of Heaven was blue) of a demon in my
-Edgar Allen Poe
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The most important thing to me is leaving the world a better place
than it would have been without me. I don't want to get rich. In
fact I think that being rich means many others must be poor, and I
could never live with that. I have a degree in history with a minor
in religious studies, which is perfect for me because I have always
been interested in why people, in groups or individually, do what
they do. I believe that my knowledge of history has broadened my
perspective on the state of the world and this is something I will
use to better help people. Right now I do caretaking for people
with disabilities, but my goal is to get my masters in public
policy administration and then my phd in community development or a
related field. I dream of creating a non- profit group that
provides alternative and sustainable housing for the poor and/ or
homeless, and response services for natural disaster victims. I
intend to be on the front lines in the fight for equality of all
people, and hope to find a strong partner who will be a supportive
companion fighting alongside me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding answers to any question, providing a listening ear and
shoulder of support, singing, making the people I care about feel
special. I am also a great cook and can do some home- rehabbing as
my family has restored several homes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sense of humor, compassion, and intelligence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't watch much tv... so it just depends on what is on. I enjoy
hgtv and history channel. Food channel on occasion.
As far as books are concerned, I generally enjoy non- fiction books
about the social sciences. Fiction books I have enjoyed are 1984,
breakfast of champions, slaughterhouse 5, middlesex, a blind man
can see how much I love you, come to me - the last two by Amy
bloom... Catcher in the rye, the perks of being a wallflower, and I
love what I have read of rilke's letters to a young poet.
Movies- I like all kinds, especially artsy movies. The list would
be arbitrary however in relationto what I can think of off the top
of my head...
Music - I love folk, bluegrass, blues, rock, and well pretty much
something of every genre. My favorites are Ani Difranco, Bright
Eyes/Conor Obherst, Indigo Girls, Amos Lee, Dar Williams, Pink
Floyd, Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac, Chicago... the list could
seriously go on and on.
Food - cheese and rice are probably my favorites. i like a bit of
everything... from traditional home-style food to exotic foreign
food. i love curry and sushi, what indian food i've tried, and love
to try rice dishes from every culture I can.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends, my family, my guitar, my brain, my glasses, my dreams.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to fix the world, how to protect the vulnerable, how I can
fullfill my dreams. I also kind of daydream about love and all that
happily ever after stuff society would say guys aren't supposed
to... But I'm an unapologetic romantic, and someday someone will be
lucky that I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I've never really had Monday- Friday jobs so it's like any other
day. But I usually spend my time off relaxing with my friends,
relaxing alone, doing the laundry and such, or going on adventures
when I'm lucky enough to have someone to join me.
