My sense of humor is less 'Family Guy' and more 'Community' which is to say that I subscribe to a higher form of dick and fart jokes. I have a tendency to pursue the unpursuable and enough charm to succeed when I definitely shouldn't. It has lead to some severely destructive pairings, which is why I am trying to reboot my approach.
Right now, not looking to meet up with anyone until I've gotten to know them a bit. You can't force a connection so I'd rather let one develop via conversation rather than go out on a 'legally blind' date. I can hang with the girls just as easily as the boys, so I'm ok with a few new friends as well as potential dates (one of my best friends I met through some nerdiness via message boards. We text pretty much daily and I've never seen her face. Don't worry, ladies, she's a lesbian :P)
Be fucking honest. Be real. I'm not trying to connect with your imaginary version of yourself. Don't tell me you love camping just because the online dating handbook says it will make you seem more interesting when you'd rather be home watching a marathon of Lost. I would too.
I prefer smaller, more intimate gatherings. If you're at a wedding or some such, you'll find me gathering up the other wallflowers and hanging out and chatting in our own little corner. I tell colorful stories. I don't dance. I'd much rather find someone to come home to than someone to go out with.
Not tomorrow, but at some point, the goal is to have a kid, raise that kid right, and watch that kid cure cancer, just so I can say I cured cancer with my penis. I'm not saying that not dating me means you're pro-cancer *necessarily*.
-Saying "That BITCH!" enthusiastically
-Nodding my head occasionally
And my beard. Holy shit, some chicks dig a beard. I don't get it. I don't do it for them. I do it because I haven't seen my chin since I was 12 and I'm scared to shave it.
I appreciate other media with the same depth that book readers do, though. I am a TV afficianado, which is not to say that I watch too much TV (well, kinda), it's just that I like to devour a show in depth. I don't watch them live. I like to wait for the show to be over so I don't have to wait a week between episodes.
The only exception is Game of Thrones, which I caught up on when Facebook blew up over the red wedding. Now I have to wait every goddamn week. I hate it!
If I'm hiding anything, it's my big, dumb, stupid heart that always gets me into trouble.
Adding: FFS, people, give me something to work with. The few of you who have already messaged me are so guarded and give me nothing to feed off of.
Seriously, I'm a dude. I'm not worried about whether or not you're coming off as a stalker or crazy or boring or whatever. In the real world, people open up to me all the time and the most important thing I can take from that is that we're all a little broken. You're here because you already don't fit the mold of the woman in the official dating handbook, so just be honest with me and I won't judge. Worst case scenario, I'll just say it's not my thing, but good luck to you.
