My self-summary
Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'entrate

Night owl, Reader, Realist..

Call me Derek, or James, I answer to either. Right now i'm trying to focus on the bigger picture. I love to talk, i'll talk to you.

I've been single for almost two years, ready to find someone new.
What I’m doing with my life
Being happy, its all that really matters.
I’m really good at
thinking, learning, reading, writing, listening.
The first things people usually notice about me
my height, and idk I'll ask someone this sometime.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
George RR Martin, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The God Delusion, A Brief History of Time, Cosmos, Dennis Lehane, Thomas Harris, Stephen King.

Closer, Good Will Hunting, 25th Hour, The Night Listener, The Big Sleep. I'm a pretty big movie buff, there are many more.

I try not to watch too much television,but nonetheless: Psych is good show, Dirty jobs, House and ESPN.

FOOD: Being from Louisiana, food is a passion, mainly seafood, but i'll try anything.

When it comes to music I am pretty open minded and can find songs I like in any genre: Modest Mouse, Hugh Laurie, Jazz and Blues.
The six things I could never do without
knowledge, love, books, food, rationality and forgiveness.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy. Life and all its weird little facets. I think about emotions and how they control everything we do. I think about love and how it truly is a gift and a curse. I think about the future and how everything that will ever happen to any of us is affected by the choices we make now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting at home reading. Trying to learn something new. Staring at the sky, I love stars.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will try to be myself at all times, no matter how it affects others.
You should message me if
If you think i'm interesting, if you think you're interesting, or if you're intelligent and have something worthwhile to talk about.
