My self-summary
I think I'm pretty fun.

I laugh loudly, and often. I've been called a chop-buster, but if I tease you, it's probably because I like you. At least as a friend.

I am: intense (but not scary, I don't think), interested, skeptical, sensation-seeking, a good friend and Midwestern to the core of my being.

I like: whiskey, road trips, quirky architecture, animals, horror movies, boxing, stand-up comedy, red meat, Chuck Taylors, vintage-inspired lingerie, thrift stores and good chocolate.

Dating-wise, I tend to mostly be mostly drawn to women. OKC doesn't list queer as an option, but it's how I most closely identify. (If you roll your eyes at that word, great! Let's not hang out). It doesn't mean men aren't an option for me-- it just takes someone interesting, is all.

Important: If you think that, because I happen to mention sexuality or alternative lifestyle stuff in my profile, I'll be interested in sleeping with you, no questions asked? You're an idiot. I mention those things because I'd rather not make friends who shock easily and who I don't have to hide things from. As a friend says, "I probably won't have any interest in what's in your pants. Unless there's money in there."

Caveat: I know these pictures are kind of lame. If you get in touch and we talk for awhile, I'll send you a picture with my, you know, face. I'm not ashamed of my lifestyle, but that doesn't mean I need random people stumbling upon this profile and putting two and two together.
What I’m doing with my life
Always striving to be better.

Working in the corporate world as a mid-level executive with no apologies about it. Trying to fight the machine from the inside.

Being a decent friend, I hope.

Trying new things (food, hobbies, etc).

Giving back where/when I can.
I’m really good at
Making playlists for special occasions/people that interest me.

Showing people I care about them. Life's too short not to.

Falling asleep under any circumstances. I'm not narcoleptic, just busy!

Obsessing over Major League Baseball.

Getting people to trust me. (It's not hard: just prove you want to listen, and you'll be surprised by what people share).
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never asked, but I'd venture to guess: my hair (it's red), my height (I'm short), or my voice (it's deep).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So many of all of these things. I consume. A smattering:

Books: The Watchmen (problematic, but I love it), A Prayer for Owen Meany, any David Sedaris (I know I'm a cliche, but the man is beyond hilarious), Play It As It Lays, The Country Girls, Lolita

Movies: Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, The Royal Tenenbaums, Major League, Kill Bill 1&2, The Departed, Dawn of the Dead (both of 'em), Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas

Music: The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, Liz Phair, Poe, Flogging Molly, Ben Folds, Cake, Kanye West, Jurassic 5, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash

Food: Yes. Red meat. Cheese. Learning to like vegetables, somewhat begrudgingly. Sushi, in moderation. Mexican like it's my job.
The six things I could never do without
humor, my phone, the internet, my glasses/contacts, friends, coffee.

Those aren't particularly interesting or idiosyncratic answers, but they're accurate.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I want for dinner. Where I'd like to travel. Something funny I've recently read or listened to online.
On a typical Friday night I am
drinking by myself on the floor in my closet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have one tattoo: a remnant from my time as a bible-thumping, Sunday school-teaching Good Christian Girl.
You should message me if
you even made it this far down the page and think we might get along.

Please note: one word, obviously generic emails don't really interest me. Best of luck in your searches, robot people! Hope you find romantic robot partners.

you understand that I'm not *obligated* to respond to messages. Nor is any woman. Men who get pissy when you don't respond to them (when you receive multiple messages A MINUTE): not cute.
