Think I would be cool to meet? Let's have a nice phone conversation and/or meet. While charming each other over the internet is sexy and all, life is too short to beat around bushes of anxiety and what ifs. Plus, I'm pleasant, spontaneous, and so much cooler "IRL." You can even message me if you want.
Hello, I'm Erik.
I'm a plain spoken romantic with a stupidly large heart. A writer, journalist, spontaneous, fun-loving, athletic, excited, ambitious, creative, sweet, funny bone-finding guy from the Midwest looking to meet a compatible, kindred spirit.
I'm looking for something casual or long term. It's not that I'm contradicting myself, it's that I'm open to either. Who knows what the future holds? Let's have fun. Let's be real. Let's get to know each other and have mind-blowing pillow talk.
I'm big into technology (I run a tech blog), renewable energy (work at DOE), and politics, and people who love or hate politics.
Love to watch films (Good Will Hunting, Interstellar, American Beauty, Lost in Translation), documentaries (Exit Through the Gift Shop, Man on Wire), be active, eat ethnic food, talk, and go out for drinks, theater, concerts, etc. I have yet to see Homeland and The Wire. I know; it's a sin. Someone introduce me.
I'm the supreme cuddling, affectionate, joking, punctual, Christmas party-charming winter boyfriend to have. Seriously, I have a heat lamp. I also am quite tall and can help you reach for things or build your stupidly fragile Ikea bookcases. I just put up my Christmas lights.
Also a big news junkie who loves to discuss current events and participate in intelligent, wit-filled conversation. Big on happy hours with friends and spontaneous vacations. I'm not a snob, and I'm no genius, but I've definitely got potential.
My favorite games are New Yorker Cartoon Caption, Scrabble (I really need a competitor with this), find my other sock, and Flip Cup.
