I read voraciously. I fully believe in regularly returning library books late such that a wholly under-funded institution will garner a few extra dollars. I'll frequently read a book at the bar with an IPA or vodka within reach. Not afraid to take a book to a concert and read between bands if I'm flying solo that night.
I play a lot of kickball and am somehow amazing in the outfield according to my team (I'd rather be at second or short.) I love playing it, both for physical fun and competition as well as the small place in my heart it will always have.
I have a love/hate relationship with TV: I don't have cable and don't want it but I sometimes catch myself on a Hulu or Netflix binge, as well as having a significant collection of media on my home server. I think that cable television is really fueling a renaissance of great story telling that network television can't match.
Music is always playing in my cubicle, my house, everywhere I go. I'm really good at falling down the mountain snowboarding. Yes, I play video games. No, you will probably never see me playing them unless you yourself are a fan.
While I'm nothing close to fanatical, I do like sports. In particular baseball & the Giants. Blazers basketball & 49ers football all play second fiddle to baseball. I will not watch Nascar. End of story.
I'm very outgoing and social when out with groups of people. However, when with my closest friends or at home, I can be incredibly mellow and quiet. After long weekends, don't be surprised if I decide to nest at home for a few nights.
I own many hoodies, pretty much only wear jeans and still love skate shoes. They're just all super comfortable. I know how to clean up, worry not.
I'm going to come off as awkward on the first message I send you, there's simply no getting around that. It's the nature of trying to start a conversation, on a dating website, with a random stranger. It's the trifecta of awkward situations.
If you wear cute glasses or baseball hats or both, I'm overly inclined to try to message you. Or are tattooed; not going to lie, I find ink very attractive. Neither of these things is necessary though.
I don't own a car. I have bigger savings goals in mind and Portland is far to easy to navigate on public transit if you put even the smallest amount of thought into it. I've also come to abhor the idea of paying interest and raping the planet for oil.
