1. Is there a setting for the level of douchebaggery I receive in my inbox?
2. Is there a setting for "Keep my profile public, except to douchebags?"
3. Did I join the Douchebag version of OK Cupid?
Ok, here we go-
I've lived in 8 states, had 19 apartments/homes since college, and am currently in Atlanta after an 11 year stay in Los Angeles. I was actually in Atlanta before L.A. so it's not new to me - and I plan to stay. L. A. was crap. Too much concrete and signage everywhere, bandaid colored houses, not enough greenery (palm trees are more like stalks than trees). People want to know what you do and how you can benefit them rather than who you are and what makes you tick.
My neighborhood is great - Ormewood Park - which should say a little about me if you're familiar with it.
I'm funny, highly intelligent, down-to-earth, loyal, and very crafty - NOT as in scrapbooking - more like I can fix things, make things, and figure things out.
I'm more of an introvert than an extrovert. That doesn't mean I'm a loner or shy, if you're not familiar with the actual definitions. It means I need alone time to re-energize rather than be around lots of people. It means I'm not great with small talk, but really good at deep or compelling discussions. It means I have few but very meaningful friendships rather than loads of acquaintances. I can be the life of the party - but not all the time.
I think if I was with a group of people that you had met, you'd remember me as the funny, smart one.
I like camping, bands, the ocean, bar food, art, dogs, tattoos, building things, music, design, friends, diversity, the beach, the woods, smart asses, sarcasm, adventure, individual style, psychology, conversation, home...
I am smart, genuine, and a dork
