So....I met the most incredible person on here four weeks ago and haven't revisited the site since. Figured I'd do a quick update and status change, for what it's worth.
I'm a cheerfully melancholy, hyperactive slug. I am a misanthrope who adores people. I'm a homebody who goes out every chance he gets. I'm quite book smart but somewhat retarded. People come to me instinctively as a peacemaker or deal broker and it occasionally makes me want to fight with them.
My knowledge base tends to be broad but shallow. However, if I take an interest in something, I devour it. I'm an autodidact by nature, so I'm always poking my nose in something new.
I enjoy my own company but have a lot of people with whom I'm friendly. I'm one of those 'you're so easy to talk to' people. I have something about me that allows complete strangers to feel perfectly comfortable telling me wildly inappropriate and/or embarrassing details. Happens constantly.
Although trained in audio production and considering myself a 'musician', I play guitar horribly and keyboards poorly. I recently fell in love with my bass and bash it constantly. I tried teaching myself drums and need to work more on vocals - maybe I need a real music teacher. I sing more than I probably should but I enjoy it a lot.
I have been known to write poems, songs, short stories, screenplays, comics and novels, but I haven't been great about finishing things. I'm a major geek for comics, movies, good tv shows, books of all kinds, history, documentaries and music.
I am inquisitive, tenacious, and authentic.
My personality type is pretty consistently ENFJ- The Teacher, if that matters.
How others see me:
My last lover G described me as, "tender, consistant, reassuring, intense, and snuggly". My ex-lover M described me as simply "beautiful" (her emphasis). Back when we were dating, my friend A said, "you seduced me with your intellect". My friend B told me I was, "full of love and kindness - totally punk rock". Is it bragging if I tell you my friends think I'm teh shit?
I have some incredible real life friends on OKC I'd like to introduce: le_barista, my ex-lover, one of my best friends, and a huge musical inspiration; HeadyChic02, my personal candidate for most amazing person ever; and Muffin_Elf, my shoulder to lean on + favorite smart ass. I love you guys.
