My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Back on OKC for the moment. Let's see how long this lasts.

I'd like to think of myself as an amalgamation of all my favorite songs from my youth up to now, an ever-changing clusterfuck of light and dark, loud and quiet, jaded and hopeful, unbridled and restrained, frailty and strength, lover and fighter, a ball of laughs and a storm of solemness, the life of the party and the person seeking solitude in it all whilst holding a drink and standing in the corner.

I'm all of those things and wouldn't have it any other way.

So, what am I looking for on here?

I used to think I was looking for a relationship. Now, I'm not so sure if my answer is as cut and dry as it once was. Of course, I'm on this site to meet people and chat over a hot chocolate, a beer, a whiskey, tacos or whatever your food or beverage of choice. Or maybe, embarrassing ourselves over karaoke or talking shit over a round of skeeball. In short, I want to be able to meet people whose company/conversation I enjoy and someone I can connect with in a meaningful way, regardless of whether that translates into a serious relationship, something casual, or something totally platonic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Social services employee by day, swashbuckling punk rock aficionado, karaoke enthusiast, and whatever feels right doer by night.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
gallows' humor
stagedives (often graceless, but always hilarious/fun)
crowdsurfing (either whilst stylishly dressed or my personal favorite, spidercrawling on the ceiling if it's low enough!)
karaoke (see above!)
exploding fist bumps (I do them with a flair like no other...that much I can assure you!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

I've also been told I have a pretty deep voice. Anything besides tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll try and be as brief as possible. Not sure how many people actually read this part (I know I do though!). Besides, shared interests make for good conversation in a message, and even better conversation in person! Especially about music.

Books: Bad Behavior, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, and Tideland (book was better than the movie, I thought).

Currently reading: Fahrenheit 451

Movies: Here's an incomplete list of my favorite movies ever. Always under construction, always changing.

American Beauty
Major League
The Mighty Ducks
Short Circuit
Happy Gilmore
Welcome to the Dollhouse

I'm generally a fan of underdog-themed sports movies, crappy/intentionally over-the-top action movies, comedies and the occasional indie flick.

TV: Intervention(RIP), Beyond Scared Straight. Been wanting to watch TLC, especially My Strange Addiction. Bob's Burgers & Adventure Time are some recent favorites, too.

Music: Wow, where I start? My tastes generally fall under the umbrella of punk rock/its offshoot genres, but there's much more to what I love musically than that. Basically, I love anything that I can connect to...either musically, lyrically, or moodwise. That said, here's a short list of my current/all-time favorites:

Planes Mistaken For Stars
Off With Their Heads
Touche Amore
Pianos Become the Teeth
Iron Chic

But anything else about music, let's discuss!

Food: Comfort food, Bacon, Mexican food, Pasta. I am open to most things. Also in the midst of a wild infatuation with specialty mac and cheese, especially with bacon or barbeque chicken. And while I'm not vegan or vegetarian, there's a gaping hole in my heart where Foodswings southern fried drumsticks used to be.

And pizza. All the pizza.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music (I don't have enough words to describe how awesome I feel listening to good music/good bands/going to shows and singing along to bands whose lyrics have taken on special meanings for me at various points of my life)

Emotional connection (few things beat sharing in a great moment with someone--a friend or otherwise who can appreciate it in a similar way)

Hugs (self-explanatory. But hey, hugs are always excellent! I prefer them to handshakes. 1-armed huggers needn't apply though.)

Good food (Mouthgasms. Just mouthgasms.)

Side-splitting laughter (Come on, the best type of laugh ever's the one where you fall out of your chair and writhe on a friend's floor clutching your sides after seeing the funniest damn thing ever!)

self-deprecation (because, why so serious?)

And a huge honorable mention to pen and paper. It never judges and it's always there for you when you need it. Writing is an extremely cathartic experience for me. I also tend to be a very expressive person, so I love those mediums that allow me to feel without fear of reproach or judgment (see also: karaoke and singing along at shows).

Also another honorable mention to the articles on Gawker. That site is like a real-life version of Sick Sad World, haha.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The fickle creature that is online dating.

Whether or not to disable (or reopen) my OKC account.

Writer's block.

Cures for procrastination.

Things to do for shits and giggles.

Oh, and this too:
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
After spending a random Friday night (naturally!) revisiting this question, I'm not sure.

Could be any, all, or none of these things: up front and entangled in singalongs at a show with my best friends, going straight home to settle into some alone time after a long work week, hanging with friends and humoring ourselves with each other's company, breaking away to take long walks to nowhere in particular while listening to music, finding new places to eat and/or new watering holes, or stumbling into a random karaoke night and diving headlong whatever fuckery would ensue as a result of my participation.

And really, all of the above is as likely to happen on a Friday as it would be any other day of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a beard. A little birdie told me women on this site dig that kind of thing.

Anyway, I've probably taken this site too seriously in the past. Sometimes it's too easy to forget while wading through the sea of profiles fishing for common interests/insightful thoughts to leave messages about that the process of meeting new people and learning about each other is supposed to be matter what the end result may be.

Because really, some British lad with an acoustic guitar said it best:

"If you're all about the destination, then take a fucking flight. We're going nowhere slowly, but we're seeing all the sights. And we're definitely going to Hell, but we'll have all the best stories to tell."

Lastly, I wonder if being a black man on a dating site is akin to being a leper. To be honest, I tend to think that it is at times. I respect the whole "to each their own"/personal preference thing, but I see so many profiles on here that basically say "no black men pls kthx" (I obviously won't message people who state that in their's too short to waste anyone's time, especially my own) and I feel like that's a thing that men of other races don't have to deal with as much. Just my humble opinion. Agree or disagree, whatever.

The notes are all wrong but you still sing along!

If you kinda sorta got it all figured out. Or not. Mainly if you don't.
