Not really. I just like saying that.
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a proper update on this profile and I figure, since I’m trying to get back out there, that I should take some time and do so.
So, about me? That’s kind of a tricky thing to talk about. If I have to sum myself up in one word, it would probably be weird. The actual word weird, not the act of summing myself up. I’m kind of an introvert, keep to myself most of the time, but I think people tend to see me as more outgoing than I actually am because I do make an effort.
I like strange things. I like to collect little vinyl figures of super heroes, science fiction characters and monsters. I’m a bit of a sucker for cute, geeky things. I have three sonic screwdrivers and I crocheted myself a sixteen foot Doctor Who scarf. It would probably be really good for cosplay, except that I don’t do that. I have nothing against cosplay, and I’ve seen some impressive costumes, I just don’t think I’d be very good at it.
I have a steady job. It isn’t a great job, and it causes me more stress than I would like, but I’m pretty good at it. And they give me money to do it, which is nice. A downside to my job, at least as far a social life is concerned, is that I work overnights and my weekend is Thursday and Friday nights. It’s kind of hard to meet people. Hence the online effort.
My parents are both senior citizens. My father has dialysis twice a week and my mother is recovering from cancer. So I live with them to help them. Financially, emotionally and with the things that need doing around the house that have become too difficult for them.
I don’t drive. Didn’t lose my license, just never bothered getting it. Personal choice. For a long time I thought this might make me an unsuitable dating prospect, but there are these things called taxis that will come to where you are and take you where you want to go if you pay them. So I don’t feel so bad about the “don’t drive” thing anymore.
I’m not really an outdoors type of person. I’m not going to go skiing, kayaking, rock climbing or any of that. I like going for walks. There’s a walking trail not too far from home that I used to go on all the time. But then we had those big rains a couple years back, and a lot of the trail got damaged. I think it’s mostly repaired now, but I haven’t had a chance to check it out again. I used to like going out there, taking pictures of plants and trees and such. I would take multiple pictures of something, anything really, from a bunch of different angles. Then I would come home, load the pictures into an art program, layer them on top of each other, and tweak the transparency, just to see what I might get. I’ve gotten some interesting images over the years.
As I said: weird.
So, what am I looking for?
I want to meet someone nice. Someone kind. Funny. Sweet. Someone who is going to like me for me, and not for what they think they can make of me. Someone who thinks being happy and comfortable count as valid life goals.
What am I not looking for?
Drama. Complicated situations that become more and more complicated until everything falls apart. Someone who is going to take the bad things that happened in their previous relationships and hold me accountable for them. Someone who is going to make me feel like they’re doing me a favor by letting me breath their air.
I am also not looking for hookups, one night stands, or casual sex. I want a genuine emotional and mental connection to someone. I don’t want to feel like our entire relationship is one long negotiation to gain access to your lady parts. I’m not saying that I don’t want to have sex. I’m saying that I’m not going to have it with someone I can’t trust or be comfortable with.
Ok, this seems like enough for the moment. Anything else you might want to know, feel free to send me a message.
