To state the obvious: I'm looking for someone to be with. It doesn't matter if we're going out or staying in, I just want to be with someone who wants to care about more than themselves, will let me care about them, and can be honest about what they want. I'm not against finding "just" a friend.
I love music--especially metal, hard rock, and similar genres; my favorite bands are Trivium, Five Finger Death Punch, Katatonia, and Ghost Brigade. It would be absolutely awesome to find someone who would sing along with me and rock out to tunes while we listen to the radio. I'd love to find someone who would play "This World Can't Tear Us Apart" at our wedding. Well, I'm only half serious; I wouldn't want to "ruin" someone's dream of a traditional wedding, but you can't tell me that song wouldn't kick ass.
I watch a lot of TV, movies, and anime. It'd be great if we could lie together, cuddle, and watch something we both enjoy. If you're in to sci-fi, anime, or cartoons (e.g. Archer, Robot Chicken, American Dad, Family Guy, Bob's Burgers) you get major bonus points. I also enjoy reading books and manga. I don't watch reality TV unless I've got nothing better to do and Gordon Ramsay is involved.
I've never done drugs, never been drunk, and that's not going to change; I don't mind what other people do or judge them for it, it's just not for me. That said, if your decisions on what to do and where to go are heavily influenced by how high or how drunk you can get at the locations or events we're considering, then we probably wouldn't be compatible for a long-term relationship. Example: not wanting to eat at Friendly's because you can't get beer there; I mean, come on, have you had their chicken fingers with honey mustard sauce? I [need] that every once in a while.
Tattoos and piercings are a major turn-on. I don't have any (maybe someday), but at this point I consider my dreads a body mod. It's cool if you don't have any; in the end, nothing trumps a smile.
A bit more:
Music has meant a lot to me over the years. Nothing like listening to something really heavy to get you pumped or something mellow when you're down or just want to chill.
I love anime--the stories, the characters, the art style, and the way that the best anime can evoke strong emotions. I like reading manga too, but that's been a more recent development.
I like video games and own a 360, but I don't play a lot. I still have all my other systems packed away somewhere. Occasionally I go to an arcade.
I go to the movie theater 10+ times a year.
I'm interested in writing, photography, and film. Interested, as in I'd like to be doing these things professionally and for fun.
I like card games like Setback, Rummy 500 (or Gin), and Texas Hold'em. Recently I've enjoyed playing Pretend You're Xyzzy (online clone of Cards Against Humanity) and would like to find people who play CAH. I like playing pool and bowling (only played once so far though). I've been thinking about trying indoor rock climbing. I want to buy a recurve bow and targets. I like going to concerts, but I haven't been to many. I'm open to trying new things.
I try to keep up on news, especially on science and technology. My main sources are Google News, Reddit, and Arstechnica. I watch The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. I usually catch the evening news too on CBS, but it's not a priority for me. I take my news with a grain of salt and don't believe Fox News should be taken seriously by anyone.
I lived in California for 2 years, when I was 19-21. I've been to Canada, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, and Germany. I'd like to see more of the world--more of the universe, if there were viable spaceflight options for the average Earthling.
TL;DR: "For the time that I've been given, I am what I am." - 5FDP
