I am fond of intellectuals, but at the same time, they intimidate me. I enjoy activities such as: viewing and discussing film, poetry, literature, and lyrics, taking turns reading poetry aloud with someone, singing even though I lack the talent, discovering new music, laying down on a blanket in the grass and having a picnic, sharing thoughts and emotions with someone, staying active (humans were never intended to be sedentary). I'm hypersensitive emotionally & physically, but I am not whiny nor ungrateful for my blessings. I am pretty intense. My emotions are overwhelming, at times. I cry as well as laugh on a regular basis. I wish to meet people with whom I can feel comfortable enough to show all of my sides to. I make a good friend but often times people don't give me much of a chance because I'm unsure how to break the ice. I am, by nature, more of a listener than a talker. I've been told I'm "too quiet", though I am incredibly open, expressive, and certain individuals have been able to get me to talk quite a bit. I stay away from drama and would much rather partake in a mature discussion, instead of an unnecessary argument. I was severely depressed for a period of time, but I'm emerging from that, and am getting more in touch with certain aspects of myself that I had lost. I don't consider myself talented by any means, but I like to dabble in poetry & various art projects, usually my art projects resemble those created by the average 10 yr old. Chances are, if I "add" you, I'm probably either too intimidated because you impress me, OR may write you at a later date when feeling brave (perhaps). I can be very socially awkward, yet uninhibited. I laugh at stupid random shit for no apparent reason. I like when people can be silly and playful with me. I am not negative nor do I wish to associate with anyone who fosters the belief that life is composed of little more than doom and shittery. I am only interested in speaking with straightforward people. I am that way with others and I expect the same courtesy. I'm a very emotionally charged person and drawn to others that are. I have no interest in politics, the economy, or sports. I don't want to be exposed to anything related to any of these things, don't wish to discuss them, don't wish to hear about them, am not particularly fond of those who invest too much time dwelling on nor fretting over such things.
It's neat when people can simply BE without the pressure to speak. I am a bit of a misanthropist, but I also posses an unusually strong sense of empathy towards fellow earthlings, both human & animal. I'm very liberal minded & have a distaste for conservative republicans, bigots, people that strive to fit the status quo, arrogance, materialism, passive aggressives, anyone with a bad temper and anger problems, people that talk too much and say so little, and closed minded folks. I value intellectualism but can't stand pretentious assholes. I don't care what you look like or what you do for a living. It's important to me that you are humble, kind, genuine, understanding, have the same values as I. Being an introvert is a plus. If you dig my music, message me at once.
*I'd like to make my intentions for having this profile made clear. In case you've not read the above information, I would like it to be known that I am in a monogamous relationship with someone who I am very blissful with that, in my eyes, no other man compares to nor can compete with for my affections. I am completely disinterested in cheating, but am not at all opposed to the possibility of forging platonic friendships. He is well aware this profile exists & understands that I only have the purest of intentions.*
