I am intense, honest and introverted. I love history, literature, philosophy and nature documentaries. I'm queer, a feminist ally, socialist, and atheist. I think I come off as super pretentious, but the only thing I'm actually insufferable about is music. And I keep it all tightly under wraps if I'm not sure about my company.
Music is the most important part of my life: I am the frontman of a garage punk band. It is over here: http://thearchelons.bandcamp.com
I am pretty insecure, and take some time to get close to people, but I'm a very loyal and reliable friend, once I get comfortable. And once I'm past a certain level of comfortable, I loooove to talk. Forever. About everything.
Lately I'm in a pretty great relationship with a pretty amazing person! We're both very progressive and open, so that isn't a bar to potential interest, but I AM pretty lazy, so I'm not super likely to want for more Serious Dating partners currently.
I work at an Office Job, trying to maybe get some technical skills, and listen to lots of music, podcasts, and sometimes audiobooks.

5. Board and video games
You'd like to meet up for coffee or go to a show.
You like a couple of bands I like... or at least wouldn't mind if I blathered about them to you.
You want to blather to me about a band. I like that too, and if it's not one I've heard of I get to listen to it for the first time!
