Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
SUMMER 2015 UPDATE: things are changing. fwiw i might be available
to do fun stuff, but i also might not be. i realize that for most
folks this is not the most exciting way to start a profile, but
it's where i'm at right now.
AUTUMN 2013 UPDATE: lately, i have been having amazing fun sexy
times with one of the coolest if not *the* coolest lady-bodied
persons in new york city. we are involved in an experiment in
monogamy, so i am not presently on the hunt. meanwhile, i am back
to teaching, so i'm going to try and anonymize this a bit. sorry
about the pictures. can't quite bring myself to take this thing
nerdy, scruffy appearance; inexpensive but particular tastes.
finally getting around to my years of decadence and debauchery, aka
bourbon and pornography.
loves: architecture, karaoke, old negatives, comics, cozy
productivity, sunshine biking, trivia, ILX, baking, pinball,
dancing, keyboard music, slow-starting mornings.
from down south. no accent but i still say "y'all."
DISCLAIMER: while i'm not just on this thing to pick up hot
babes, i'm very iffy on boyfriend/girlfriend heteronormative
relationships. this has less to do with wanting to date lots of
people at once and more to do with being an independent person
who's mainly attracted to other independent people. i don't wanna
own yr body. i don't wanna own yr time. i may get totally sweet on
you all the same, but still.
consequently you'll hear me speak mainly of "lovers" in my past.
this probably makes me sound like some dreadful polyamory fuck, but
it's the best way i can name all the friends that have also been
makeout partners, cuddlers, long rambling conversationalists,
the original purpose of this profile was to help me cultivate a
Reputation around town. soon, i thought, all the sweet, slutty
hipster babe-a-lots will emerge from the woodwork and find in me
their fated champion. it seems to have more or less worked out that
way. new york!
(RIP "activity partners")
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
back to school, professional nerdperson, saying yes to things,
projects formerly forestalled. better broke than bored.
i've traveled, mostly in the name of architecture. lots of
memories. now i'm sort of focused on here-ness. exploring the city
one unattractive 1960s architectural masterpiece at a time.
my perennial dream is to live in some attic in the late 1920s or
early 1950s, with few possessions but lots of heart and
intensely-lived evenings. i am having as hard a time giving up all
my stupid stuff as i am finding a time machine.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
rationalizing extra dessert.
picking things up with my toes.
nerdy board games.
the second- or third-most heartwarming compliment i've ever
received was an ex-lover telling me i made her feel comfortable in
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
whiteness, maleness, general class position, hair, beard (currently
in remission), nose. sometimes i like to imagine i have a cute
butt. people tell me that i wear unlikely color combinations and
girls' shirts but i have no real concept of this unless i'm
specifically thinking about it.
the gray hairs have started to show at a rate of about one every
few months, and part of me is weirdly stoked about it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
WARNING, I HAVE CORNIER TASTE THAN ANYONE YOU KNOW.
books: nerdy nonfiction, virginia woolf, neal stephenson, gabriel
garcia marquez, old x-men, pulpy garbage.
movies: i haven't seen anything that's in yr list and i rank dumb
things highly. die hard and kiki's delivery service is all i really
need. in the last two years i have been impressed by such
masterpieces as road house, darkman, drunken master, the fugitive,
and others. biggest disappointment on re-watch: the sandlot. what a
tv shows: mst3k, futurama, columbo, simpsons, twin peaks. generally
watching tv makes me hate myself but lately a cider and half an
episode of something-or-other make a good come-down.
music: anything that you can sing along to with giant emotions,
great tunes, good words. 50s rock, classic country, 70s AM gold,
chart pop and hip-hop of any era. core is beatles/elton/abba/wonder
pop-rock. also max tundra, chuck berry, the ramones, parliament,
wu-tang. miguel & the dream in the 2010s.
food: pancakes, tibetan fried momos, thai stuff, little debbies
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
* record player
* books books books
* stupid computer
* incredibly filthy sex with sweet dirty girls
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
girls, architecture, songs i'll never finish writing, random little
phrases from books i haven't read in ten years, the search for the
perfect churned-up wallowin' mud bog, and all my dear sweet
inspirational friends now scattered across the earth.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
decompressing after school, tinkering in lightroom, watchin a movie
with my main lady squeeze, meeting old friends for cheapo dive
drinks and lotsa laughs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
1) i like curvy girls with mild overbites, slightly upturned noses,
almond eyes, smiley cheeks, big lips, and (**IMPORTANT**) big firm
bubbley butts. (i'm a connoisseur and i will show yr ass true
lovin' appreciation if you want it.)
i also like severe hipster girls with fly bangs, precise teeth,
and/or that one-side-of-yr-head-shaved deal. these things are
hard-wired and i cannot apologize for them. i've been kinda
swinging for femmier girls than i used to go for. not sure what
that's about - in the last few years my eyes have been turned by
skirts swooshing around thighs in a way that would shock and
confuse my 24-year-old self.
2) good alternative: are you into this strange trend of the totally
skin-tight show-yr-butt black tights, in combination with big goofy
megaman size boots that make you look like a superhero or somethin?
i approve of this trend, though i recognize this makes me really
lame and gross sounding.
3) i have unusual turn-ons and i would just say "i'm kinky" but i
feel like that's claiming unearned membership in a scene that i'm
just beginning to explore. i like the things i like; you don't have
to like 'em too, but open-mindedness is a nice thing and
squeamishness is passe.
previously i've tried to sum it up by saying "i like it dirty" but
this has been widely misunderstood. let's say "REALLY dirty." if
you do fetlife we can swap details that way too (tho i'm not really
active on there).
BUT. things don't always have to be so elaborate. i also like
making out and groping and sweaty bodies rolling and squirming
around together in the afternoon. oouh.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you wanna go bike-exploring (especially stupid architecture
you wanna get nerdy (rambling, hobbies, art, research etc).
you wanna get dirty (pie fights, mud pies, slimings and
you wanna have yr picture taken. i do decent portraits though most
of my experience is with dumb buildings. if my current career falls
through i will go into the business of pinups and very niche
you wanna ball and yr not shy.
i've seen many a profile proclaim: "don't message me if you want to
talk dirty to me." i kind of take the opposite stance on this
don't take any offense if i don't write back. i am a huge flakewad.
it doesn't mean i don't think you're nice n stuff. most people are
basically all right, yknow?
