Post-Preface: Okay, since apparently the majority of you lack basic reading comprehension skills, allow me to make something perfectly clear to all of you: I. DON'T. WANT. NEW. FRIENDS. So, if you're a female who doesn't think she's "ready" for a relationship or FWB, don't even bother messaging me because if you do and then proceed to pull that wishy-washy bullshit, I swear to whatever omnipotent deity you believe in that I will rain down an unholy verbal firestorm upon you. Do not test me.
If being a philosopher were as respected and lucrative a profession now as it were in ancient times, I'd be (as a song I heard once so eloquently put it) "flossin'." I'm constantly on a quest to learn and expand my mind, I spend a lot of my time on the internet and at the library reading old, dusty reference books for no reason other than the fact that they exist. I'm highly technically-inclined but have major creative aspirations (writing, music, film) and I tend to surround myself with people of the same mindset and goals. Once you befriend me, I'm the most loyal person you'll ever meet and I'll go out of my way to do anything I can for you, but betray that trust and I'll deny you ever existed in my life at all. Is an "optimistic misanthrope" a thing? Because that's a pretty much spot-on description of me. I'm hopeful about the distant future but, in all honesty, can't stand most people I meet. I get the feeling the said misanthropy is mainly influenced by my surroundings, though. I don't have much in common with many people around here and many of the things I'm into could be considered "taboo."
