Literary, creative type for similar. Introverted with a serious
streak, but those barriers are prone to breaking the better I get
to know you. Midwest raised; east coast educated; west coast
confused. I'm at a point where I've started to veer my life out of
autopilot and really investigate what I want and how to make myself
happy. Overall, it's an exciting time to be me.
I have a penchant for poeticism, find alliteration alluring, and
probably spend more time reading than is really healthy. According
to the matchmaking scientists on this site, I'm almost certainly
"more pure" than the person reading this profile. I don't really
know what that means, but I like it.
Phobias (in no particular order): primary colors, airplanes, sand,
driving, large social gatherings, animals with mechanical gaits
(chickens!) or inexpressive eyes--particularly fish. I spend a lot
of time worrying about sharks, even in non-sharky places.
I’m really good at
Daydreaming (an undervalued talent!). Writing, learning, finding
obscure but engaging films. Eking inspiration out of the most lowly
forms of art. Feigning confusion to disarm my interlocutors.
Getting pleasure out of the slightest grammatical faux-pas. Talking
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty tall, but not in a scary way. Other than that, my
grayish style and quiet demeanor. I get a lot of compliments about
my hair, despite my inability to keep it under control.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I could type an exhaustive list here, but I doubt anyone would read
it. I have a thing for cyborg dramas and weighty foreign flicks. I
appreciate understated depth but can typically tolerate the most
heavy handed stories as well. For novels, I tend to favor
experimental styles and technical innovation over plodding
narratives. Woolf, Pynchon, and David Foster Wallace form my
literary triumvirate, but I'll read pretty much anything that
happens to find its way in front of my face.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My self-prophesied demise aboard an ill-fated airliner. Abandoning
my career in order to add to the world's population of starving
artists. Whether modern society is information-addicted. What
exactly is an imaginary number, and what is or isn't at the outer
boundary of the universe. Why the previous two questions bother me
so much. How I really should get out of bed now... well, maybe 5
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely at home reading or watching a movie, but possibly
beguiled into a beverage by some brazen friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't enjoy sex at all unless I have an extremely close
attachment to the person I'm with. Really.
