i find that most human relationships are guided by context and utility to a disheartening degree, and then we paint over that reality with romantic narratives. i've got a profile here because i prefer to seek the darker and more authentic romance of reality in those rare meaningful connections with old souls who appreciate human nature honestly, while still passionately pursuing authentic and thorough investment in others.
In short, i'm here for the rare ones. The thoughtful. The heartfelt. The unintentional outsiders. i'm here for the wise, the playful, the generous, and the self-aware. i'm open to thinkers and feelers awash amid the vast and ephemeral nature of existence (if you're not a little dysfunctional, you're not paying attention) - people who try to pull together a modest swathe of solid ground through tenderness, compassion, and authenticity, and then defend that ground with tenacity and devotion. If you are shy, bold, eccentric, awkward, goofy, sappy, corny, quirky, artsy, and/or nerdy, so much the better; i'm hoping that anyone else has stopped reading by now.
