My name is Erik, and I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking for. I know I want to share my life with someone eventually, but I'm just not sure when that moment will be. I suppose I'll just have to wait until the right person comes along, or until I bump into them.
I'm definitely not one to be shy at first, maybe nervous, but I'll have no problem asking a ton of questions personal or impersonal (depending how open/comfortable the person is). I like to talk to people, and hear their story :)...I just hope it's not one-sided.
Also.. I can be pretty outspoken, not rude, but I'm definitely a guy who has an opinion ...all within a respectable boundary of course .
I'd say I also have a good level of consideration around strangers and more with people who are closest to me... making others feel good makes me feel good.
I'm also a huge geek.
I could go into more details...but then you'd know my whole life story and you'd get bored and I'd ruin any chance of attracting anyone, so I'll stop here!
I Am The Captain Of My Soul
Out of the night that covers me
black as the pit from pole to pole
I thank whatever gods may be
for my unconquerable soul
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud
Under the bludgeonings of chance
my head is bloody, but unbowed
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
looms but the horror of the shade
and yet the menace of the years
finds, and shall find me, unafraid
It matters not how strait the gate
how charged with punishments the scroll
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul
by William Earnest Henley
I'm back in school :). I'm an English major (please do all the eye rolling or long pauses now to save the awkward and also long explanation to defend my interest xD) My goal is to teach, my end game is to be a published writer (a well known published writer if possible)
Being perceptive of people and understanding others.
I'm pretty good at playing pool when under the influence of alcohol.
Over-analyzing text messages.
Sarcasm/dry humor/vulgar humor/referencing movies and
Basically I'm nearly good at absolutely nothing.

It's pretty eclectic , the only music I don't listen to is hick country, and hardcore rap that makes me feel like the music is going to summon a drive by.
Some examples: The XX, The Naked and Famous, The Killers,
Jessie J, Kelly Clarkson, Paloma Faith, Paramore (1st - 3rd albums), The Hush Sound, Silversun Pickups, AC/DC, Robyn, Avenged Sevenfold, A Fine Frenzy, Fiona Apple, Sara Bareilles, Jimmy Eat World, Shiny Toy Guns, Metric, ....
Fav Food: I love pesto Pasta...like that shit will make me satisfied for days. Also any kind of mexican food that isn't spicy (i know, whats the point? There is a point and it's the fact I'm a fucking pussy with spices.) Sushi/sashimi any day. And don't mention Panini's around me unless I'm either eating one or on the way to said sammich.
Maybe that was a bit excessive..
