Much like some other people note, I hate doing these self-summaries. I am a bit of an introvert so I might not contact you first, even if I am interested, but I promise that I am really nice despite not being great at small talk! It is definitely much easier for me to talk about things of substance than to talk about essentially nothing.
I was born and raised on 40 acres in the backwoods of Wisconsin and I think that part of me will always be a little bit rural. Not necessarily like cow tipping rural, but I do enjoy camping and stargazing and other things that you just can't do as well in the city. As an animal lover I definitely had an advantage there and I am sadly missing my two giant German Shepherds, Sasha and Stryder.
Gender, racial, and ethnic equality are very important to me both as a person and in my studies in sociology. If you are against interracial or homosexual relationships and families, we probably will not get along well. I am also all about equality in marriage so if you are looking for a champion, a breadwinner, or an all around “man of the house”, I am sure you can find plenty of people interested in that role. If instead you want a best friend, a partner who will value your work goals equally, and somebody to act together with to make a set of parents and a household, then we are looking for the same thing. Not to say I can't be dominant in some ways or at some times, I just don't make that the prerogative of my interactions simply because I am a male.
I love reading and watching (sometimes nerdy) television shows, anime, and movies. Sometimes (maybe more) I speak too bluntly for my own good. Live music and shows are amazing, but I usually only get to a few a year for some reason. Board games make for an awesome night with friends and family!
