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. Besides all that...
I’m kind of awesome.
It hasn’t come easy, and it took a while…but yeah, I am.
I can do just about anything that I set my mind to. I’m very creative and skillful, whether I’m designing and building furniture, installing some kind of fixture, sewing a slipcover, making some kind of cosplay helmet for my son, refinishing an antique, figuring out why my furnace isn’t working, removing viruses off the computer, performing minor surgery on a dog wound, you name it. If you got a problem, yo – I’ll solve it.
I am a little obsessed with the aesthetics of my surroundings. I believe you should love where you live and I’m very particular about what I surround myself with. Everything should have meaning, purpose, and “soul.” Form and function. Beauty and utility. If you are ok with furnishing your home with Rooms to Go, we shouldn’t go any further than this….
I probably just lost 99% of you…unless you’re gay…in which case, I’m not sure why you’re here, but we should probably hang out.
I’m comfortable in my own skin for the most part, and drama is merely a joke. I tend to be more concerned with “how can we all just get along” these days. It’s much more pleasant.
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 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, good design, friends, diversity, the beach, the woods, smart asses, sarcasm, adventure, individual style, psychology, conversation, home...
I am smart, genuine, and a dork
