My self-summary
I am ambitious, intellectual, and stoic.

I am an aspiring a writer among many other things and I am going to achieve my dreams. The unfortunate part is my path forces me to be terribly lonely so if anyone out there would like to chat me up or anything, well, here I am. I want to chill with interesting, cool people, who just wanna hang out and be mellow. My dating history is something out of a bad romantic comedy so to say that I have "trust issues" is an understatement it would be amazing an feat to even try to get me to trust again but I've never been one to quit even when its in my best interest to do so lol. I have been described as understanding, caring and non-judgmental in most cases. I am not the prettiest guy or the most successful but I ****ed up a lot in my past and I am paying for it now. I guess most people try to make themselves good on these things -- well, I like to be honest. This is me, so if you don't like me don't ask about me.
What I’m doing with my life
I am experiencing all of the things I can. I may be very lonely most of the time but I've learned that what has defined me is the sum of my experiences. Knowing this I have made the decision to keep learning and trying new things. I am a professional Martial Arts and Self Defense instructor. I hitchhiked the East coast of the country along the way I occupied dc, wall street, and Tallahassee. I also spent two months living in the woods in Florida. I also just recently spent a year on the road and went from new york down the East Coast through the Gulf Coast and up the West Coast and back again.I enjoy traveling through these means and its the easiest way for me to travel given my current lifestyle. If you want to pass negative judgement on any of that well I guess you better just stop reading now.
I’m really good at
Reading people, lending a non judgmental ear, hitching, woodland and urban survival tactics, swimming, teaching, writing ,Mixed martial arts, Boxing and helping anyone in need. My Medical knowledge is fairly good as well. Oh and being a cynic I'm really good at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have absolutely no idea. I guess my personality and other then that I think I am pretty average. Maybe that one of my eyes is a slightly different color then the other. Possibly my scar and facial fractures lmao. That I am bitter, stoic, and a bit aloof.

The six things I could never do without
1 pen
2 paper
3 martial arts
4 my wits
5 coffee
6 determination
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My life, where I made mistakes,and what I learned from them. How things in my life might have been different if I hadn't spent my younger years being a jerk and not committing to anything or anyone. Why I have this profile when I never get any responses and the only person I met on here turned out to be a very terrible match for myself.
On a typical Friday night I am
Alone, possibly at home writing or watching a terrible movie. Some weekends Im able to afford to go to shows and expand my mind.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am incredibley well versed in romantic comdey style films.
You should message me if
You want to learn anything about me cause for fucks sake your not going to learn about anyone one these impersonal pic and profile bullshit.
