I'm currently in an open relationship and being lazy about the open part. I'm usually pretty busy with work, art, writing, socializing, binge watching all the amazing TV shows that popped up in the past two years and keeping a very awesome lady happy. If the open relationship deal scares you off, no worries. Pretty much half the open relations on OKCupid remind me of Will Ferrell and Rachel Dratch in a hot tub, talking about sexual conquests with the oil of spiced lamb shanks glistening off their body. Which is all good, but I'm not looking to throw the long lovely all about like a dog's chew toy. I'm both content, and open, thus lazy about dating. But if any intelligent, genuine misfit with a mind of her own wants a date or more I might be down with that. My only point is I currently have no agenda other than chatting with or meeting new people. -Maybe experience something I've never done before.
I'd probably say I'm poly - though typing that word makes my insides hurt. There seems to be a "Girl who lives in Brooklyn" template that's passed around these days - possibly offered by OKCupid for 2.99/month. I get and appreciate awesome things like "going on adventures", "tattoos", "kink", "beards", "Battlestar Gallactica" and "feminism" (Who hates racism? I hate racism!), but it's like a goddamn assembly line in here. Seriously... there are musical instruments out there othet than the fucking ukulele - N.T.A.T.I.W.W.T.
I consider myself an independent thinker and in my youth I was a perpetual contrarian, but I do get why everyone here seems so similar. I moved from Baltimore to New York for a reason - other than free art school (R.I.P. Cooper Union). There's the culture and art and yes, being around similar-minded folks. Hell, we are probably reading each others profile because we "Match." So If you are the genuine article - and not some prom queen who threw on some off-the-wall tattoos and non-prescription glasses, then binged watch Dr. Who to fit in - and you happen to like many of the things that people around you do, saying so is fine, but for the love of Christ on Cracker throw a wild card in there. Maybe you really like raising armadillos, collecting patterned socks, trolling trolls, custom painting old-timey wheel barrels, building replicas of the flux capacitor out of jelly beans or some shit, any shit, old shit, new shit, red shit, blue shit. Just stop being so fucking boring.
As for me, my childhood best reflects what I've become. I was shy kid drawing with red and black ink, depicting ninjas, jet planes and giants animals fucking up all types of shit up. After that I never stopped creating http://herbertweldon.30art.com. The nerd in me - a real one, and it was not considered cool at all - got into a lot of fights in middle school with older kids who thought they would make a punching bag out the Black version of Slenderman (if Slenderman wore Cosby sweaters and Payless shoes). But, considering the fact I had a younger brother that was larger than me, sparing gloves, and little supervision, I did OK for myself. Later on I bulked up, played 4 years of high school basketball. Even though no one messed with me anymore, I still kept to myself, making giant paintings that questioned race, war and social hierarchies.
I'm a lot more social now (maybe too social), but I was a walking contradiction then and a walking contradiction now. Artist/Jock/Nerd/Rebel. You can catch me one day in a three piece suit and another in a jump suit covered with paint ( and often a mix of the two). I randomly spit out the lyrics to "Liquid Swords," "Closer," the Duck Tales theme song, and even "Maria" from West Side Story... which is mostly Maria a shit-load of times.
My Keirsey temperament is some where between "Inventor" and "Architect". This is because I'm extroverted in one way (being easy to talk to, while standing out in a crowd, and making an absurd amount of social connections), while also being introverted (keeping around a small and select group of people that I genuinely I call friends, while seeking out me time and walks to nowhere when ever I can). I'm also "intuitive", "thinking" and "Perceiving," if I'm going to be all fucking pumpkin spice about things.
Oh, I also curse a lot, say uncomfortable things around my friends, yet somehow still capable of getting along with everyone. I'm not kidding. I dare you to not like me. I double-dog dare you, motherfucker. But there is fine line between being fun or generous, and telling everyone how goddamn great everything is. No one likes a kiss ass. It's dishonest and I hate dishonesty - where ever it comes from.
I can be a smart ass, but never an asshole, unless I'm around a asshole and all bets are off. I can be a social chameleon sometimes and give the respect I'm given,but despite being easy going I will (from time to time) find joy in embarrassing holier than thou snots, bullies, and insecure dicks. People who spitefully act out at the expense of others really get under my skin (for obvious reasons).
I like dancing, great stories, drinks with good friends, food full of flavor, playing the dozens, side-spitting conversations about nothing and everything, and going on advent- um.... doing new stuff?
Also My OKC-name sucks because I don't want to spend the money to change it. Hell, I still don't know why I'm on this site.
